Once upon a time, a generous grandmother materialized at Lillian's door and inquired about her desires of hitting up the shops. Well, hell yes! A little pitter patter through the lanes, and, soon enough, they stood perched under the 'MAC' sign. With a stumbling heart, little Lillian entered and soon swatched her heart away through all the petite black pots; all whilst recalling the most praised upon names, and, soon enough, ventured out of the shop with an empty quad and four pots of

In the top left lies Era--a satin finish with a hint of golden sparkle (in the most tasteful of ways) that is as subtle as taupe gets. Similar to this beige is Naked Lunch. Both panned pigments exist similarly: sheer with a hint of sparkle. Nevertheless, I wouldn't waste money on two basically identical shades; thus, Naked Lunch remains with a more pink undertone (but, no one will assume you have Pinkeye).
At the bottom of the pan chain, the deeper shades reign. Assuming my subtle nature, you can go ahead and guess how 'deep' things are really going to be. Patina, on the left, reflects a taupy-brown pigment. Again, there's a splash of iridescence, but also a golden sheen. And, last, Quarry, the only matte shade of the bunch, boats a brown-ish grey tone with a hint of plum.
Alas, the MAC palette saga is just hitting its prologue. Is it normal for me to down into a slumber while anticipating stroking my brushes--a 217, to be exact--in these pans once more? No, it's not; just beauty blogger issues.
