While quite a bit of the MAC Strength Collection sold out at a rapid pace, the quads are still hanging around. One quad, All Woman, seems to have decent reviews. While the other, today’s post of Inner Strength, isn’t getting a whole lot of love. Let’s see why!
What the MAC website has to say about Inner Strength Eye Shadow x 4:
An Eye Shadow Quad in four shades: Lithe Spirit, Inner Strength, Fabulous Fit and Heatherbelles. The highly pigmented powder formula applies evenly, blends and builds beautifully.
5.6 g / 0.19 US oz
Inner Strength has four shades of eye shadows in Lithe Spirit (palest white pink, satin); Inner Strength (light cool mauve taupe, matte); Fabulous Fit (midtone cool grey, matte); Heather Belles (deep charcoal, satin).
This palette has the opportunity to be stunning. All of the shades coordinate and appear that they’ll work well together. Unfortunately I didn’t find the pigment to be strong on any of these (they’re all satin and matte). The best two were Inner Strength and Fabulous Fit. The other two were like throwaway shadows, the quality just isn’t there. I’ve heard the other quad, All Woman, is pretty amazing, so I’ve ordered that and should have a review up soon!
In this EOTD I used Inner Strength all over the lid, Heather Belles in the crease, Fabulous Fit in the outer V and Lithe Spirit to blend out the crease and to highlight. The liner is MAC Night Trail Pro Longwear Eye Liner and the mascara is MAC Plushlash.

MAC Eyeshadow x 4 retails for $40.00. The Strength Collection only seems to be available online and at MAC stores, so hopefully you’ll be able to get your hands on the products you’re after!
