This is a really cool palette. I feel bad that I’m just now getting around to doing a review and some swatches of it. Rarely do I like the holiday palettes that MAC puts out. Sure, they’re ALWAYS pretty.. but the shades are always similar or the SAME as the year before… it’s just nothing special.
This time I was pretty pleased with the holiday palettes. Released with Holiday 2010 A Tartan Tale, the Reelers & Rockers is metallic and has 6 shadows – White Rabbit, Melt My Heart, Carbon, Family Treasure, Gaelic Gold, and Crown & Sceptre. My main reason for grabbing up this palette was for Gaelic Gold and Crown & Sceptre. SO pigmented and pretty. I’m a Steelers fan (of course!) and this is my go to palette when I’m rocking my Steelers gear.
My biggest gripe?? STOP putting the damn 213 brush in the palettes! Make a mini 239, for goodness sake!! It’s more universal and works better with every shade!
Reelers & Rockers retails for $36 USD plus tax and is still available on the MAC Website. Personally, I’m surprised this one didn’t sell out right away. It’s just that good. It’ll probably be hitting your local CCO within the next few months as well, so keep your eyes peeled for it there to score a sweet discount.
