The Duchess Eyeshadow Quad - The MAC Osbournes Collection

Unless you have been living under a blogging rock for the last few months, you will of course know that Kelly and Sharon Osbourne have released a collection with MAC that started to appear in stores during the early parts of this month. Being a huge fan of the Osbournes anyway (many nights as a teen were spending watching The Osbournes at night time!) I knew I had to have a piece of the collection, and at the top of the list was Sharons Quad of eyeshadows! From the colours in each range (Kelly having more purples and Sharon having the warmer tones), Sharon's would be my favourite - and I was right.

I wasn't surprised to see the collection sell out like hot cakes (Strip Poker which is a nude lipstick from the Kelly Collection soldout within 12 hours at my MAC counter! With almost the entire collection selling out within a week - so I got this eyeshadow quad (and an item from Kellys collection) the day after release to make sure I didn't miss out.

Sharons eyeshadow quad contains four neutral warm eyeshadows that go absolutely beautifully with my eye colour. It contains three shimmer shades and one matte. The matte is an eyeshadow from the permanent range and the rest are limited edition colours. The lightest shade is named Sweet Eyes, which is a light pearl pink shadow and has a veluxe pearl finish, this is a wonderful shadow for highlighting, personally I have been using it on the inner corners of my eyes to make them appear bigger. The shade to it's right is named Sexy Eyes, which again is another Veluxe pearl eyeshadow and is a light rose gold eyeshadow that has very warm tones and is absolutely gorgeous! The next is a copper eyeshadow named Femme Fetale which is a satin eyeshadow and is very bronze toned. Finally we have the Matte eyeshadow and this one is the eyeshadow that is from the permanent line and it is Embark, which is a cool toned brown eyeshadow and is great for darkening up the outer corner or crease!

As you can see Sweet Eyes is near my skin tone but adds shimmer so is the perfect highlight for the inner corner! I have been using Sexy Eyes and Femme Fetale in my outer V and in the crease to add definition and depth and it works lovely! The warm tones definitely compliment the blue in my eyes!

This is definitely a palette to pick up if you get the chance as it is so stunning, and one of those rare ready to made palettes that can transfrom your make-up from day to night with no problem at all. It costs £33 from MAC counters and online, but as I said, the Osbourne collection is/was fast to sell out to grab it if you can!

What's your favourite item from the Osbourne Collection?
