The mark. Color Swing Palettes are my favourite eye palettes from the brand. The little compact is pretty ingenious. Open it up and you see three gorgeous taupe, gold, and brown eyeshadows.

Since my eyes have been bugging me lately, I tested the shades on each eye. Forgive me, but the thought of prolonging my eye troubles another day I just couldn’t bear. And besides, a one look on each eye demo kind of goes with the palette design anyways, right? πŸ˜‰

The eyeshadows are lovely! Soft with nice pigmentation and can be used wet as well to up the intensity if you wish. I do think the shadows are a tad too soft, as some of the shades seem to kind of blend into each other a bit losing intensity. But it’s not big deal to just pat on a bit more of the lighter shade again. The overall effect is a pretty and easy smoky fall eye look that really, you can’t beat! And combining both sides of the palette would be SO pretty!

What colours do you tend to reach for as the weather starts to cool? Plums? Browns? Greens? Or all of the above? πŸ˜€

*product sent by the lovely PR for review, thoughts are mine as always!

  • The 2 different eye look is kinda cool! Never heard of this brand before but will keep it in mind next time I look for eyeshadow

  • They are so pretty! This is how I want mark flip palettes to be from now on. Before it was cool but a bit bulky. Love the second shade from the taupe trio. πŸ™‚

  • OH THAT NEUTRAL TRIO!!! Yum yum πŸ™‚ I like neutrals with a twist, so in autumn maybe a neutral with something purply? I’ve always had a soft spot for purple, but I seldom use it all over my lid!

  • I love the plums! I am definitely getting more into those lately!

  • Heyyy, they’re getting tricksy!

    And aw, about your eyes. I wonder what the heck it is? Do the cream/liquid ones (like the Josie Maran) do that too? Or liners?

    • LOL!! You know, I think it’s my remover to be honest! I think it’s what’s been causing me grief.

    Who needs cooler weather? Not that I don’t want cooler weather, mind (please weather, please please PLEASE stop being hot!!!) but I’d wear this just about any day regardless. Well I would if I, A- owned it, or B- had eyes that were more hospitable towards makeup. Most people grow out of allergies. I just seem to be growing into even more of them. :/

    • Poor you! I know what you mean. You know I think I might have figured out what’s been bugging me eyes and I think it was the remover I was using!

  • Liz

    Oh, the flipping is kind of cool! I haven’t seen that before.

  • I’m continually in awe of Mark.’s packaging! They are both stunning on you, really really love what you did with the brown trio!

  • Lily

    I love how that neutral trio looks on you, Tracy πŸ™‚ I hope your eyes are getting better.

    • Thanks Lily! You know, they are. I think partly is was my makeup remover! I can’t use oil based ones I think.

  • ok, that flippity flip thing is ingenious!

  • Flip it back and you get a whole new set of colors? That’s awesome!! I love purples for fall and winter too! πŸ˜€

  • I love the packaging! And the shadows themselves are so pretty!

  • Jayne

    Aww your poor eyes! I do love the flipping mechanism and both sides have very wearable shades for everyone!

  • So pretty! I remember seeing this on your Instagram (right??) and feeling kind of “eh” about the shadows, but I LOVE that brown smokey eye you created!! Talk about sultry. ;o)

  • Wow ! Both are gorgeous on you Tracy !
    Love the brown and the purples !
    And the concept of changing the shadows is great !
    Xoxo

  • These taupe/brown shades look amazing on your eyes. I hope your eyes stop bugging you soon, pesky things.

  • You flip it and you get three more shadows?!

  • Gorgie-pants McGhee! Love the flip action! That’s so brilliant. I love the looks you put together! I just love your pretty peepers!
