Originally I was never going to get anything from the MAC Temperature Rising, but one thing led to another and here we are!

MAC Temperature Rising Eyeshadow Quad: £38.50 -
I am so so glad I purchased this. This quad is seriously one of the most beautiful things I've owned. My pictures don't do it justice but the colours are really stunning. The colours are as follows;
Performance Art; a frosted golden mauve.
Temperature Rising; a light warm toned peach.
Swelter; a mid-tone grey violet.
Beauty Marked; a charcoal black with red pearl.
I've been loving wearing performance art all over the lid with swelter in the crease and beauty marked to darken up the outer crease. It's such a beautiful palette and surprisingly wearable. It's really versatile too! You could pop temperature rising all over the lid for an everyday look, or use beauty marked to go for a full on smokey eye.
At nearly forty quid this quad is pretty pricey, but I know I'll get use out of this, unlike loads of other palettes I've impulse bought. The quality is up to MAC's usual standards (beauty marked can be a little difficult to work with, but it is a glittery black!) and I have no regrets!
I couldn't get any decent swatches, but if you head over to Heather Davern Make Up (http://www.heatherdavernmakeup.com/2013/05/mac-bare-my-soul-temperature-rising.html) she has some beautiful swatches and a gorgeous FOTD using this palette.
