I received the Large Eye Shadows and Beauty Powder to review. I love the bigger pans of the Large Eye Shadows and personally wish that MAC would just go to this size exclusively. These shades are all exceptionally pretty. The one I’d recommend you pick up is Carbon. Yes I know you already have it. But in this size and considering that this shade is an essential, it’s really a great buy. I’m also a big fan of the Beauty Powders and this one is perfect as we move into spring and summer makeup. Don’t miss it!
