MAC Electric Cool Eyeshadows

Hello my loves, 

How are you all? I have spent the past few days in Birmingham with some wonderful friends (hence the lack of posts!) and most of that time was spent in the Bullring Shopping Centre! I made a couple of MAC Electric Cool purchases that i thought i would show you! I rarely keep up with MAC nowadays and didnt even know that this collection was coming out so it was nice to see it in person rather than go off swatches online and order that way. I had my eye on two gorgeous, neutral shades that funnily enough 3 of us ended up buying the same 2!
Electric Cool is a limited edition collection from MAC that is made up of 12 eyeshadows that have a springy formula.

I purchased Superwatt and Pure Flash! Superwatt is described as a light shimmering taupe and Pure Flash! as a pale champagne both of which i would wholeheartedly agree with! Superwatt is a brown toned taupe and Pure Flash! is a soft peach shade, both of which have a high shimmer finish which i personally do love. They have a soft, lightweight consistency that is spongy to touch and somewhat similar to the Chanel D'Ombre Eyeshadows (Which i love and use pretty much everyday) however they are slightly more shimmery than those. 
I found both of these shades to be pretty pigmented and the swatches are one swipe of the product with my fingers. As with all mouse/sponge like eyeshadows i wouldnt wear these alone but as a base for other eyeshadows. Ive read a lot about people not really liking the packaging of these eyeshadows as they have a screw top although im not too fussed by it as it makes them stand out for the original eyeshadows.

Each pot contains 2.1g of products so slightly more than the normal eyeshadows and retail for £14.50.

You can buy them now from MAC counters or from the MAC Website.

Did you pick anything up from this collection?

  4. MAC always have new collections coming out and i find it so difficult to keep up. I did see a couple of posts on these eyeshadows so i am aware of their new screw top packaging as opposed to their standard ones. The colours are very pigmented and really lives up to the standards of MAC. I am still deciding whether i will make any purchases from this collection since nothing really stands out to me unfortunately. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on these xoxo
