Since I've changed and sell millions of Mac eyeshadows that didn't suit me or didn't impress me,
here are some of the final ones that will stay permanently in my collection.
Keep in mind I'm really pale and leaning towards cooler tones!
UNBASIC WHITE (LE) - white shimmery color, great for inner corners
VEX- antique silver with pink and green hue, amazing all over the lid
OMEGA- matte cool light brown, great for blending and brows
NYLON- yellow based shimmery white, highly shimmery for inner corners and brow bone
RETROSPECK- rustic green-yellow cool gold, lovely all over the lid (not too orangey)
TRAX- medium violet with golden glitters, really unique shade on the lid
RICEPAPER- yellow champagne with slight sheen, lovely for darker complexions
PATINA- antique medium brown with rose gold hue, one word: MY FAVORITE
SKETCH- deep warm purple, wearable as a liner and outer V
HEPCAT- reddish purple/pink with blue sheen, to add a bit of color
|L to R: Unbasic white (LE), Nylon, Ricepaper|
|L to R: Vex, Retrospeck, Patina|
|L to R: Omega, Trax, Sketch, Hepcat|
WHICH ONES ARE MY FAVORITE?
All in all they are great shadows but other than my favs I wouldn't repurchase.
I already got rid of Satin taupe, Sable, Shale, Expensive Pink, Gleam, Blackberry,All that glitters...
They just didn't work out for me or there's plenty of DUPES.
Mac Nylon- MUA eyeshadow 1- Wet n wild Comfort zone palette
Wet n wild shade is definitely a bit more yellow toned and warmer.
MUA eyeshadow 1 is practically a 100% dupe.

Mac Patina- Catrice Oh,it's toffeful!
Both have a similar rose gold hue but Catrice is 2-3 shades lighter and with slightly less sheen.
|Up to down: Oh,it's toffeful, Mac Patina|
Mac Sketch & Trax- Catrice Plum up the jam
Catrice looks really similar in the pan with Trax but it has less golden sparkles (golden sheen didn't show up on the pic) and it's way cooler and darker.
However, a nice cheap alternative between Sketch and Trax.
|Up to down: Plum up the jam, Trax, Sketch|
Mac Omega- Urban Decay Naked- Sleek Au naturel palette
Mac Omega is way pigmented and cooler than the two dupes.
However the closest one is UD Naked with more warm tones.

Mac All that glitters- Wet n wild Comfort zone palette
Mac Gleam- Wet n wild Greed palette
Mac Satin Taupe- Catrice My first copperware party
