Palettes Revisited: MAC Manish Arora

I ran out of Urban Decay palettes to do tutorials on so I decided to use a MAC one I have had for about 5 years. This sold out very quickly when released so I think a lot of people must own it, therefore a tutorial has use. Also, all of the colours except Going Bananas and Playful are in MAC's permanent line, so most are easily accessible if anyone wants to replicate this look.

This palette was part of a collection MAC did in collaboration with fashion designer Manish Arora. I absolutely LOVE all the packaging from the entire collection, and the eyeshadow palette was a must-have that I ordered as soon as it was online (back when MAC allowed me to order from their website!!) Of the collection I bought about half - the palette, the two lipglosses (Shine Manish & Pink Manish), and one of the lipsticks (Girl About Town).

This, in my opinion, is one of the best collections MAC has done since I have been a fan. This, Hello Kitty, Heatherette, and Dare to Wear are just some of my favourites. I need more colour, MAC!! I haven't been that impressed by collections more recently

I love this palette both for how it looks, and for the great range of bright colours it contains. The only let-down in the palette is Bitter, which just does not have great colour pay-off. It is buildable though, so it's not the end of the world.
