MAC x Wakanda Forever Eyeshadow Palette

Black Panther

The MAC Black Panter Eyeshadow x 8 Palette is a new limited edition palette that incorporates a new formula from MAC that they describe as a “unique creamy, sensory texture that offers strong color clarity and bright payoff without heaviness.” They are more like cream-powder eyeshadows (similar to Natasha Denona‘s Cream-Powder formula), which means they have more glide but lack the conventional slip/emollience of a full-on cream eyeshadow. In actuality, the mattes had a more “natural matte” finish than pure powder matte eyeshadows since they were more pigmented for most colours in the palette and had a more “melted” appearance on skin.
