M·A·C Cosmetic’s Ice Parade collection is a 2011 limited edition collection which includes 3 variations of Eye shadow x6 (6 Snowglobe Eye Shadows/Cool, 6 Snowglobe Eye Shadows/Warm and 6 Snowglobe Eye Shadows/Sultry). Each palette includes 6 shades of eyeshadow that are contained in snow globe-inspired compacts. It is about US$38.00 (Php1,700.00) for 0.21 oz. I bought this last year and decided to share with you this Sultry Snowglobe Eyeshadow Palette which is one of the 3 palettes available back then. This palette includes 3 limited edition colors and 3 permanent colors which you can still buy individually at any M·A·C store. The M·A·C Ice Parade Collection launched late October of 2011 in-stores.
I used this palette on my first makeup tutorial which is the  

Sultry Snowglobe Eyeshadow Palette

1. Lightfully (Limited)  is a sheer baby pink but is icy white with a very little  color payoff when you apply.  I thought I can use this as a base but this color is kinda disappointing.
2.  Trax  (Permanent) is a copper/gold shimmered burgundy color. This gives a good color payoff. This is shimmery so this is prone to some fall-out.
3. Fun! (Limited) is a copper color eyeshadow but when you apply as if it's not there. It is a disappointment. I tried a couple of layers but still the color does not payoff.
4. Festive Delight (Limited) is a pretty high pigmented lustre berry eyeshadow. Festive Delight has a sheen finish but not that much so it's not likely to fall-out compared to other lustre eyeshadows. This is the only limited color in the palette that is not disappointing.
5. Black Tied  (Permanent) has a velvet finish so it's gives a much softer color payoff than what appears in the palette. It is a chalky black with silver-ish sparkle.It's a little bit matte to me but it does not blend so well when applied like any other matte eyeshadows I have.
6. Shadowy Lady (Permanent) is a blackened burgundy with purple edges and a matte finish. This has a matte finish and is part of the permanent range.
