I hope you are all enjoying your bank holiday weekend! I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Limited Edition Mac eyeshadow quad Bare My Soul a few weeks ago and wanted to share my thoughts with you.
The packaging of this quad is a similar shape and size are the usual black four pan palettes you can buy at Mac but it is a gorgeous bronze shade and slightly rubbery (like the Nars packaging). When buying this I actually thought about maybe taking the pans out of the quad and putting them into my fifteen pan but it doesn’t look like you remove them.. not easily anyway. I don’t want to mess about with it too much because it is so easy to scuff up the shadows and it’s heart breaking when you do that!
Anyway, on to the shades. As mentioned, this is a quad so you get four shades, all of which are metallic, shimmery and earthy toned.
- When In Rio – This shade is deep green with brown and red undertones. The finish is a frost and it has a duo-chrome finish. In fact, I think this shade is a very close dupe to ‘Club’ and therefore just like that the shade changes slightly depending on what you layer under it. When thinly layered this shade is a dirty brown but when the more you layer it, more of the green tones come through.
- Bare My Soul – This is a yellow gold shade with a frost finish. This is a gorgeous colour to wear day or night because at first it can seem quite sheer but it is buildable.
- Romantio – A light taupe with bronze and subtle pink undertones. This shade has the veluxe pearl finish and is a cross between Naked Lunch, Satin Taupe and All That Glitters.
- Friendly – Deep chocolate bronze shade with a veluxe pearl finish. This is a very rich colour and is perfect for an evening look or in the crease.

All of these shades work well together, have good pigmentation, are long lasting and are perfect to create both day and evening looks. This is a really gorgeous palette and I’m really glad I managed to find it!
It looks like Bare My Soul is still in stock at Selfridges for £38.00 so if you want it, grab one while you can!
What do you think of this quad?
