About this deal

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when Sketch: Described as a ‘burgundy with red shimmer’, this is part of the velvet finish. This one works really well with Star Violet. Actually, all 3 shades in the last row really work very well together. Haux: Described as a ‘soft muted rosy brown’, this one has a satin finish. This is quite a famed shade. It works well as a crease colour or as an all over lid shade. Aromatic is described as a “matte brown [with a Matte finish].” It’s a muted, dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firm and dry, which resulted in semi-sheer, uneven pigmentation.

Sharing with you two of the looks created with this palette. One was done during another tutorial I did with MAC – smokey eyes, using this palette. The MAC MUA made me blend till the cows came home. Needless to say, the finish is flawless. And the second look was created by me at home. Embark: Described as an ‘intense reddish brown’. This one is, again, a matte finish one. However, it’s smoother to work with than Quarry. The shade is obviously a brown but with red undertones. This may or may not work for everyone since it can look a bit muddy. If used sparingly, it works well to add depth to any look.Star Violet: Described as a ‘pinky brown plum’. Like Antiqued, this one is also from the veluxe pearl finish and is THE most gorgeous shade in the palette! This is the one shade I would probably hit pan on and will need to buy a refill for my pro pan palette. It just brightens up the eye and blends so effortlessly. Honey Lust: Described as ‘bronze dipped peach’. This one is a gorgeous champagne gold in lustre finish, with tonnes of fine glitters. This also means that you have to deal with fall out. Also, the colour pay-off on this one isn’t too great. So, how to use it? I finally figured 2 ways to work this through – one, apply it wet and pat it on. Second option is to just pat it onto the lid on an existing colour to add a touch of glamour. Poppyseed: Described as ‘midtone mauvey nude’ is a lovely pinkish mauve in satin finish. Works very well as a crease shade or for all over the lid for an office appropriate look. Antiqued: Described as ‘ash brown with bronze’, this gorgeous, gorgeous shade is in veluxe pearl finish. One of the prettiest shades in the palette. Even though this does not have much relation to the burgundy theme of the palette. The fact that it is there is a big plus for the palette because it helps you to create coppery/bronzy looks also, from the same palette. And you know how coppery/bronzy shades work really well for Indian skin tone. I think this is an excellent palette and a great value for money for someone who’s wanting to try MAC shadows but is not comfortable to splurge on singles. There has been a lot of talk about how small these palettes are. But honestly, that’s what I love about this one. It is really small – still has a good variety of shades and variations in finishes to be able to create looks that can take you from neutral to exotic or from daywear to evening out.

Don’t Tell is described as a “sparkly brown [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a rosy brown with copper and champagne sparkle and shimmer. It had a sparkly texture that you could feel that seemed to blend out to semi-sheer coverage. The palette is a mixture of satin, veluxe pearl, lustre and matte finishes. All the shades are extremely pretty when it comes to colour. I specially love Star Violet, Haux and antiqued. The eye shadows are perfectly coordinated for a smokey brown look. The pigmentation is a bit of a problem with Noir and quarry. While all the other shades require 1-2 swipes to show opaque colour, these two shades do not show up till 3-4 swipes. The pigmentation of all the other shades is good with opaque colour is 2 swipes. The staying power is great with 6-7 hours of wear without a primer and 8-10 hours with a primer. The shades do not crease so much. I am going to use the burgundy shades a lot more in winters. Star violet is very similar to MAC expensive pink which is my favorite eye shadow of all times. answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but Ricepaper is described as a “peachy gold with shimmer [with a Frost finish].” It’s a lightened yellow with a frosted finish. It had a soft, blendable texture on the skin with good pigmentation. It seemed a smidgen yellower compared to my original.Apart from the pigmentation issues with 2 shades, this palette is gorgeous. It comes at a great price and you get 9 shades at the price of 5. The burgundy times nine palette is part of the recent permanent palette releases from Mac. Mac relaxed 4 new palettes including Navy times nine, Amber times nine and purple times nine. Each palette in this times nine collection, contains nine eyeshadows that tie into the theme of the palette. Each palette contains a mix of new and permanent shades. Cork is described as a “muted golden brown [with a Satin finish].” It’s a muted, medium brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was semi-opaque with a soft but firmer texture. It was sheerer and noticeably lighter than my permanent pan. If you’re looking for an easy to wear, versatile palette, that is perfect for travelling or indeed won’t take up lots of space in your makeup bag, then look no further than the beauty that is the Mac burgundy times nine palette.

This palette of 9 shades costs a lot less if you compare with the price of 9 individual shadows. So it is a great investment. You can carry just this and a kajal for all eye makeup including the brows. Kitties is described as a “pale bronze [with a Frost finish].” It’s a light-medium, yellowed gold with a frosted, metallic finish. The texture was soft, fairly smooth, and it was mostly opaque. Quarry: Described as ‘soft muted plum brown’, this shade is like a less pinker version of Poppyseed. Being matte finish, I find it stiffer and a bit difficult to work with, in terms of blending. The smoothness of the shades depends on the finish. Some shades are easier to work with and blend together, some take a little bit of effort. However, there isn’t really a shade which doesn’t come through. They might not be as creamy and smooth as the Make Up Forever ones, however, different textures and finishes are known to perform differently, and mattes which are smooth and creamy are more difficult to find.


Creative Copper is described as a “light beige [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a golden copper with hints of brown and a glittery, sparkly finish over a metallic sheen. Lustres are typically sheerer with noticeable sparkle/glitter and almost always have fall out. This has been released as a limited edition shade as well as in the 15-pan Warm Neutral palette, but it’s not as good as the one in the 15-pan palette–it is more like the limited version, as it is chunky and doesn’t hold together as well. I would use this one over a base for sure to help it bind. Georgia Peach is described as a “dirty rose pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark peach-brown with a matte finish. The texture was on the firmer side but yielded decent color payoff. All three colours on the bottom row work really well together, as well as independently. Haux can work as either a crease colour or an all over the lid colour. I like to wear haux on the lid, with sketch in the outer corner, or as a soft cut crease. Star violet is absolutely divine all over the lid and buffed into the crease or even with sketch to deepen out the crease or outer corner. Sketch has been a favourite of mine for a long time and one of the first Mac shades that I bought, so it is really handy to have it in the palette too.
