Review | MAC Cinderella 'Stroke Of Midnight' Palette

MAC Cinderella 'Stroke Of Midnight' Palette* £38.50

When MAC announced their Cinderella collection it's safe to say I was very, very excited. It's a collection that is dividing opinions of beauty lovers and Disney fans but I am completely in love with the whole range. I knew I would be and I'm first to admit I am biased because if you stick the Disney logo on something I'm pretty much guaranteed to buy it.

I adore the iridescent blue packaging of the Stroke Of Midnight Palette, I personally think it is a great fit for a Cinderella collection as it instantly reminds me of her beautiful blue and sparkly ball gown! I think it's incredibly 'Princessy' and a great fit for the movie.

The Stroke of Midnight Palette contains six beautiful neutral eye shadows that I am just obsessed with. 5 of the 6 shadows are permanent in the MAC range. The palette is very grown up and perfect for a neutrals or smokey eye lover. It features the sort of shadows I could definitely imagine Cinderella keeping in her make up bag!

Vapour- A peach-pink with violet pearl with a velvet finish.
Phloof!- A frosted off white with a frost finish.
Omega- A soft muted beige-taupe with a matte finish.
Quarry- A soft muted plum-brown with a matte finish.
Satin Taupe- A taupe with silver shimmer and a frost finish.
Stroke Of Midnight- A warm black plum with sparkle pearl and a velvet finish. (exclusive to this palette)

I absolutely love the shadows included in the Stroke Of Midnight Palette. I know for some people the fact 5 of the shades are permanent MAC shadows is an issue. I personally only owned Satin Taupe before, which is actually my most used MAC shadow so I'm quite happy to have a back up!

I'm a massive fan of the MAC eyeshadow formula. I find all the shades to have a soft and buttery texture, are easy to apply and blend, as well as lasting for around 8 hours on me without a primer. The shadows are well pigmented, although the lighter shades can be slightly harder to build up. I am really impressed with the quality and it's introduced me to 4 new shadows I will definitely pick up when I eventually work my way through this palette.

All I can really say is this palette makes me want to dance round the room singing 'so this is love'...

The Stroke Of Midnight palette retails for £38.50, a good price if you think a MAC shadow costs £10 for the loose refill. 
The MAC Cinderella collection launches on the MAC website and in Harrods on the 6th of March. It will be available elsewhere from the 13th of March. It's a guaranteed sell out!

Will you be picking up anything from the MAC Cinderella collection?
