MAC Temperature Rising: Temperature Rising Eye Shadow Quad

There's differing opinions amongst bloggers about MAC limited collection quads. It's either poor shade selection or unusually bad quality that has made a Quad a bit of a risk. Frankly, most of the time I'd say you would be better making your own Pro Palette with nearly identical shades. This time I took a chance, and it paid off.

I'm not going to bore all of you have read all of my reviews on Temperature Rising, but the packaging wins me over every time. I wish this was the standard MAC packaging actually. It's just so pretty to look at and screams bronzed summers. Shade selection wise, it's one of my perfect palettes. Neutral with a slight plum twist and ideal for a natural day look or an evening smokey eye. The shades are (top row l-r) Performance Art, Temperature Rising, (bottom row l-r) Swelter and Beauty Marked (which is actually a permanent shade) and are actually similar to those in the NARs the Happening Palette but perhaps more warm toned. I would say the quality is slightly below normal MAC, but is still high. I do think the pigmentation of Swelter should be greater to make for a better smokey eye, but it easily built up and can be blended out. They wear roughly 5 hours and are extremely easy to blend. This will be taken everywhere with me this summer, definitely winning me over to MAC collection palettes.
