Here are some of my faves from MAC:

eyeshadows

BEAUTY MARKED: A deep blackened red with a sparkle/twilight effect

IDOL EYES: Silvered violet threaded with gold (ooh, I like that one
)

MEADOW: Murky greenery, shaded by blue

FEMME NOIR: Smoke-filled green

SUMPTUOUS OLIVE: A subdued khaki with metallic coat

HONEY LUST: Bronze-dipped peach

pencils

TEALO: Black-stroked teal

BOUNTIFUL BROWN: Brown rinsed with bronze

SAGEGRASS: Smudge me greeny grey

OUT TO SEA: Out of your depth marine blue

FASCINATING: Snake-eyes matte white

longwear

PURRPETUATE: A tattoo-dark metallic frosted berry-red

PASSION PRESERVED: Love this forever dirt brick red

CLINGPEACH: A lip-clinging shimmering peach

paints

BARE CANVAS: Unadorned champagne dressed with shimmer

nail lacquer

ROCKER: Red-Y to rock deep wine

SHIRELLE: Classic she's a dame red
