Hit Pan #9 | MAC Trip Palette Bronze



To begin with, let me confess that, in fact, only the lightest shade in this palette has achieved hit pan.  However, it is none the less a good time to give this palette a mention overall, as I also really enjoy the other wells in this tin.


MAC Trip : 4 Bronze Eye & Cheek was a gift from my mum a long time ago.  She got this at our local international airport's Duty Free before she went on holiday - not that we have a local domestic airport, but I wanted to play with adjectives, okay?  Hence I don't know how much it was sold, or if it is still available.  ;)

Not a typical bronze goddess, or fan of the tan skin, me.  However, this palette is still perhaps one of my favourites among many.  First and most important of all, this doesn't have any cream or gloss or sticky mess included - not only will that expire way sooner, but because powder and cream usually end up looking horrendous in a same palette.  Also, the mirror inside, along with the little brush, are of decent size and quality.  Handy especially as this is designed for 'travel'!  Let me go through each of the four shades in it for you~

Beauty Powder Blush "Eversun" - Perfect reddish bronze colour to achieve the sunburnt look, if you fancy that.  I only rarely touches this.  A tiny bit will add plenty of colour and life to the face/cheeks.  Pigmented, soft, blends well; just not the colour I look for, for my skin tone and likings.

Eye Shadow "Magic Dust" (Frost) - The first shade I hit pan, but probably only the second favourite in this palette.  Pretty soft and semi-sheer, but definitely frosty and adds a lot of impact and highlight to area applied.  I love it as an inner corner pop of brightener.  Also very well as an all-over lid base to lighten up and add shimmer, this won't be too white or reflective like, e.g., the next colour "Elite".

Eye Shadow "Elite" (Veluxe Pearl) - Almost metallic, golden bronze shade.  This is my favourite colour in the palette.  The reason why this is not the first one I hit pan on, is because this is extra pigmented.  A tap on the brush is all I need for one eyelid - perhaps, or rather definitely, I have small lids...  The metal sheen doesn't blend away, so very often, heavy-handed me ended up with foiled lids with this shadow, which I adore, actually, even in day time.  XD

Eye Shadow "Smut" (Velvet) - Standard matte brown.  Not super pigmented like a Matte or the "Elite" above, but still has decent colour pay-off.  Great to balance down/up the greatly metallic bronze, or add depth to the soft shimmery cream shades.  I like using a pencil brush, with Smut, to smudge out any eye liner I am wearing.  It gives just the right amount of definition and smokiness.  This is a permanent offering on MAC website.
