The New Eye Palette Zahra Can’t Wait To Get Her Hands On!

By  | 

The festive season is well and truly upon us, and the air is thick with celebration, happy vibes, and the anticipation of receiving and giving gifts! (Have you checked out our Holiday Gift Guides for some inspiration yet?)

And what better time than now to rejig your beauty stash and update it for fall? ‘Tis the season for endless card parties, after-work events, and generally catching up with friends, after all. And you do need a beauty staple that will take you from now into the end-of-the-year party season with little fuss and plenty of personality.

And I think I’ve found the perfect new eyeshadow palette for creating a variety of looks this festive season. Meet MAC’s new Light Festival X9 Eye Shadow Palette, an India-only limited edition palette created especially for the Diwali season.



MAC Light Festival X9 Eye Shadow Palette


Firstly, how exquisite is the seasonal packaging? I’m known to geek out over product packing, and this flicker of flames and fireworks — inspired by the festival of lights — is quite the stunner. But let’s get onto the actual product now, shall we?

The new palette consists of 9 exclusive shades in a mix of matte and frosty textures that are perfect for creating a variety of looks. The mattes include Carbon (black) and Embark (an intense reddish brown), which are perfect for layering or creating smokey eyes that go oh-so-well with desi clothes. The frosted shades include Amber Lights (a peachy brown with shimmer), Cranberry (a red plum with pink shimmer), Goldmine (an intense gold hue), Deep Truth (a shimmery midnight blue), Ricepaper (a peachy gold shimmer), and Humid (an intense green — also my favourite hue in this palette!). There’s also a pearlescent orange copper hue called Coppering that would work so well as a transition colour, no? As with all MAC products, the shadows are highly pigmented and top quality, with little to no fallout.

So if you’re looking for a stunning new addition to your fall makeup haul, look no further than this sleek new palette from MAC. It’s got all the drama you’ll need to take you right through the festive season in style!
