My MAC Neutral Palette

Second Row:  Espresso, Patina, Preppy*
Third Row:  Swiss Chocolate, Shale, Unexpected*
(Names with an asterisk * are not from MAC)

Hi, loves, hope you're all well!  First I want to point out that not all of the eyeshadows in my MAC neutrals palette are from MAC. Some are from Makeup Geek (I pointed out which).  Also, I know not all of the colors are "neutrals" in the sense that there are some purples and a green/brown duo chrome, but in general they're mostly toned down colors.  My bright purples, blues, greens, orange, darks, and black are in my MAC Color palette.
Note:  This is a MAC palette and I removed the insert so more eyeshadows would fit inside.

I honestly can't pick favorites because I love them all (except Embark).  They made it the palette because they were great quality and I wanted to take them with me all the time.  I usually use an eyeshadow before I put it in so I know only the best from my stash go in it.  In the case I put it in before testing it, I remove it if it's bad (it has happened!)  I have a lot of browns, and I could go for more!  I love brown eyeshadow, it's so versatile.  And they all look different!  Medium, light, dark browns, shimmery, cool toned, red toned, etc...

The reason I don't like Embark is that it's very dry, stiff, and hard to blend.  Maybe I got a bad one but it's not the same quality as the other MAC shadows.  The reason it's still in there is that I feel I just have to use it because I can't justify throwing it away after what I paid for it.  I just push it into my lash line with an angled brush for definition because it's very hard to apply or blend otherwise.

As you can see the palette is half way full so please give me some recommendations on eyeshadows that you love!  They don't have to be from MAC, just in a pan form or in a packaging that I can easily depot.
