The 3 MAC Eyeshadow Staples

I've been slowly adding to my MAC eyeshadow palette for a few years now, i've been reaching for it a lot more recently and three shadows have stood to me a lot which I think everyone should have.
All these shades are pretty unique, the first one especially. Soba is a warm, yellow toned brown, it is a satin finish so has a great dimension to it. It looks pretty dull in the pan but on the eyes creates a great smokey look. Applied all over the lid or just in the crease, it works with other brown tones and even purples. It isn't completely matte, instead it has a slight sheen to it. The next is Patina which is a frost finish. This has so many different shades to it, taupe, greens, browns, silvers. Like Soba, it can be used in lots of different ways. Finally I have Sketch which is a veluxe finish, I don' often wear a lot of colour on my eyes but I do like purple tones. Sketch is a lovely plum toned purple with a slight shimmer to it. It works really well worth both the shadows i've already mentioned. My favourite way to use it is applied on the outer part of the eye to add a slight hint of colour to a brown smokey look.
Sketch, Patina, Soba
MAC eyeshadows are not the cheapest but the quality of these three are very good and I haven't found any cheaper dupes for these, especially Soba, believe me i've been looking! If you are looking into starting a MAC palette or adding to yours I would definitely recommend these if you haven't tried them already.

MAC Pan Eyeshadows retail for £10.00 each.

What are some of your favourite MAC shadows?
