But I digress - today I have for you the latest MAC PRO seasonal palette, the Spring '13 Forecast Eyes (LE, $47.50 CA). The MAC PRO eye palettes feature a creme formula which is like a drier, stiffer version of MAC's Creme Colour bases. Both these products do not dry down or set like Paint Pots.

Now Mustard! / Sunshine
Must Have Brown / April Mist
Top Soil / Runway Rose
The palette is a well balanced mix of neutrals and pastels. Now Mustard! is a slightly cool grey toned cream, Sunshine is a surprisingly vibrant pastel egg yolk yellow, Must Have Brown is a beautiful mid tone warm taupey grey, April Mist is a pastel robin's egg blue, Top Soil is a mid tone burnt sienna, and Runway Rose is a very pale baby pink. Pigmentation on the shadows are semi opaque to opaque, with the strongest pigmentation being in Sunshine, April Mist and Top Soil.

Top Soil and Runway Rose
Overall I liked this palette, mainly because it successfully mixes pastels and neutrals. It's a fairly complex palette in terms of the mix because it runs the gambit of warm and cool which means there's a little bit of spring in this palette for everyone.
