Mac Satin Taupe & Sumptuous Olive

mac eyeshadows mac palette mac satin taupe swatch mac sumptuous olive swatch

My mac palette is coming along rather nicely with the two newest additions being Satin Taupe and Sumptuous Olive.
Satin Taupe is a frost finish which usually means they're less pigmented but really buildable, to be honest I'd say this was more of a metallic-y finish and it seems quite pigmented to me! It's a gorgeous  grey bronzy purply taupy colour that seems to show up differently on various skin tones and a quick google image search shows it looking good on everyone. I used the flash in these photos so you can really see the purple but in natural light it looks a lot browner on my cool skin tone.
Sumptuous Olive is a Veluxe Pearl finish which is known for it's metallic shimmer and easy to blend texture, the colour is a stunning golden green which I'm hoping will go hand in hand with the shadows in my Urban Decay naked palette to make a pretty smoky eye on nights out.

There's not many spaces left in my palette now, any recommendations for pale skin and blue eyes?
