Belated MAC Pro Haul

December 30, 2012 | , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
When I decided to do Project Pan I warned you all that I was in the process of placing a MAC Pro order and nothing was going to stop me doing so, not even a shopping ban. 

Unfortunately there is no way to access MAC Pro here in Perth, Western Australia, so I placed my order via email. I have wanted to invest in a MAC Pro Eyeshadow Palette for a long time now. When I contacted them about placing my order it was recommended that I wait as the new palette was going to be released in a matter of weeks. 

The new MAC palettes are very similar to the Z palette. They base is magnetised and the structure is a lot sturdier than their old palettes. The lid is also clear so you can see what's inside. Bonus! This palette is $30.00AUD.

Whilst the palette no longer has slots for eyeshadows, a variety of inserts can be purchased. I bought a 15 x Eyeshadow Insert for $15.00. 
Wondering what eyeshadows I'm going to put in my palette? Well I have two, Carbon and Wedge, but my attempt at depotting them was a major fail. I have a big list of MAC eyeshadows but I'll definitely be buying them in pan form. 
Finally I bought a Chromographic Eyeliner in NC15 and NW20, a flesh toned pencil eyeliner. I really like the look of light liner on the waterline, however I often find white to be far too harsh. This product is exclusive to the Pro store here in Australia but don't be fooled, you don't need to be a pro to place an order. This eyeliner, like all MAC liners, was $32.00.

Whilst this haul isn't massive, it's definitely big enough, and it made a good dent in my student bank account. 

Have you done any sneaky buying recently? What do you think of MAC's new Pro Palette packaging? 

Always look your best,

  1. I love these palettes, especially the clear tops like the Z Palettes. Much easier to find what you are looking for in your stash


  2. I prefer the new palette. The only sneaky buying I've been doing recently is lingerie. I've stuck to my Project Pan so far :) Good luck finishing!
