M.A.C.'s New Shadow Palettes!

I just need to say one thing before I begin. Whenever I see some of you lovely UK bloggers put up posts that are called "Boots Haul" I'm always picturing I'm about to read a post on actual pairs of boots you've bought. I laugh at myself every time I do it and thought it needed to be shared, haha!
Anywho, on Saturday my mom and I spent the day in New Jersey browsing in the mall to see if we can find anything for the upcoming colder months! I knew there was a M.A.C. in the mall and desperately needed a palette to put my shadows in because as of now they're lying on top of the cover of a palette. I went in thinking I was going to get the standard palette that everyone in the beauty blog-o/vlog-o sphere has. To my surprise I was told they no longer sold those but they had a new palette. I heard talks about a new palette but never thought it would be brought out anytime soon.
I was excited to find out that you could easily pull out and insert the divider so you could decide how many shadows you wanted to fit in the palette. What I didn't like very much was that they now make you pay for the palette and the divider, separately. The palette is, I believe around $18 and the divider is $9. Rubbish. The pricing is ridiculous. I still can't believe I paid for it but hey, I was curious and needed the palette anyway so I bought it. Besides the awful pricing and being practically ripped off I have to say I really do like this palette. It comes with a clear lid so now you can see all the colors inside without having to go through each one and opening them like with the old ones. It feels much sturdier and I've heard people say they've dropped it and it holds the shadows in tact. Personally, I would not go out testing this theory but take their word and hope that if I one day drop it, nothing cracks! I almost went to throw a fit when I moved these shadows from my Z-Palette into this one because they would not stick! Turns out these M.A.C. geniuses have found a way to only allow their magnets/pans to stick. The Z-Palette metal stickers shan't work :/ It's also a tad thicker in width which I haven't decide if I like more or not yet. I think this palette looks really sleek, and a lot more professional than the older one. I'm not sure if the old ones are still available to purchase and I got conned into buying the new one now or that these have permanently replaced the old ones.
Here's a look at my ever growing M.A.C. Eyeshadow collection nicely snuggled in their new home. I actually love it a lot although M.A.C. needs to relax a bit and realize how much they're trying to make us pay for a bit of plastic carved into circular indents. I recommend it if you've got the cash to spare, want your M.A.C. shadows to be in a M.A.C. home and/or prefer everything nicely spaced and sorted! The last was a big reason for me! 

What are you thoughts?

  4. Ohhhh.. I love this! Finally they got it together! Maybe they'll make colored ones like Z-Palette? and I can't believe they charged 9 dollars for the divider! WTH?

    2. I sort of like the sleek and classic black but colors would be awesome! Thanks so much for tagging me :) & yes, it's a great mascara! I'm starting to think that maybe Maybelline does not what they're doing when it comes to mascaras :)
