MAC Passions of Red: Eyeshadow Palettes

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by MAC holiday, I don’t blame you. The release dates are staggered, but if it has red packaging, it’s part of holiday. Red She Said is an umbrella, under which we find:

  • Red She Said (the lipsticks, the Dazzleglasses, the mineralized eyeshadow trios, etc.)
  • Passions of Red (4 eyeshadow palettes, 3 lip palettes — all in bejeweled compacts)
  • Passionately Red (2 lip palettes with Viva Glam shades, also in bejeweled compacts)
  • Adoring Carmine (drawstring bags with 3 lippies each; brush sets)
  • Kids Helping Kids (cards)
  • Enchanting Vermillion (a one-off eye kit)
  • Little Darlings (mini-sized things in groups of five)
  • The MAC Exclusive Kits (one-off kits only available in MAC stores)

Don’t even worry about the names of each release — you’ll have better luck asking for “the warm eyes palette” or “the face brush set” then asking for “Intriguing Scarlet” or “Adoring Carmine.” Today we’ll look at the holiday eye palettes; it made more sense to me to swatch the lip palettes and the “Adoring Carmine” lipsticks together.

All 6-pan eyeshadow palettes come with 213 SE brush and are $38 ($44.50 in Canada). The colors of the compacts are all slightly different.

Devoted Poppy: 6 Classic Eyes — pink, green, and blue are classic?
Young Thing (Satin)
In Awe (Velvet)
Fall Deeply (Frost)
Amourously (Frost)
Sweet Eyes (Satin) — behaves more like a Lustre in my opinion
Awaken (Frost)

Intriguing Scarlet: 6 Warm Eyes
Warm Suede (Veluxe Pearl)
Grand Entrance (Satin) — not the same as the Starflash color by the same name
Real Drama (Satin)
Gentle Heat (Satin)
Well Spiced (Satin)
Sweet Joy (Frost) — green-black, similar to Bobbi Brown’s Forest

Infatuating Rose: 6 Cool Eyes
Platonic (Frost)
Cavort (Satin)
Satisfy (Satin)
Bon Fete (Veluxe Pearl) — or Bon Fête
Deep Feelings (Matte)
Feast (Velvet)

Fascinating Ruby: 6 Smoky Eyes
Scant (Frost) — looks a lot like MAC’s Next to Nothing
Satin Taupe (Frost) — permanent color
Dark Devotion (Satin)
Gorgeous (Frost)
Ambiance (Velvet)
Carbon (Matte) — permanent color
