Sexy Eyes In A Pot
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, quick eyeshadow application, creating well defined eyes, highlighting the high planes of the face
I love love love these eyeshadows ladies OMG. My go to item when I don't have a lot of time to do my eyes but still want them to pop. Must have amazing shadowed eyes daily. I got these electric goodies in 6 colors: superwatt,love power (my fav), pure flash!,coil, blacklit,& gilded thrill. Use the following brushes for best application: Superwatt & Pure Flash! use 239. Love Power & Blacklit use 213 brush. Coil use 224 or 213. Finally, Gilded Thrill just use your hand for this one to avoid looking like a disco ball in the face and it avoid excess fallout too . MAC should really make these permanent and add more colors to the spectrum. I use either a fluidiline pot as a base or prolongwear paint pot like bare study ( for superwatt,pure flash!, & love power) for staying power. I do use a deeper color shadow also in my crease or use saddle for colors like Blacklit as a transition color. Blacktrack Fluidline is the perfect base under Blacklit too. Blackground just did too much for me and to me took away for the multicolor glitter it has. With these, I can for once do my foundation first. I will be purchasing the Switch to Blue and Highly Charged as soon as I get a chance to play around with them first. Sexy for wearing on a date too. Let me not dare forget that ladies. Oh yes, let's not forget the holidays too (especially x-mas & new years with vampy shiny lips) LOL. Get these little beauties while they are available. Let your eyes do the talking and Stay Faceful Ladies

These shadows are stunning, especially if you love some sparkle. They are best applied over a paint pot or paint with a brush like 213. Don't worry if you dent the fragile shadow in the pan a bit it will still be useful and spread on. They are seemingly long-wearing on me and I love the blend ability on them. They were launched a few years ago and they are all just as beautiful today. I especially love BlackLit (its everything you wish Black Tied was and more),Gilded Thrill and Coil.

Very pretty, surprisingly long-lasting
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable
I was expecting this new formula/texture to be more like the Bounce formula but it's very different in many ways: it's more pigmented and blendable. The texture is more firm but still fragile, meaning you can put a quick dent in it if you're not careful. It's incredibly lightweight and long-lasting... a little like a paint pot on a diet :)
Here's the catch. The colors are beautiful and vibrant but I've found the best application to be just to pat it straight on, not to try and blend too much (and I use my finger). You lose some sparkle & shine and you have to apply more layers if you try to blend it. And unlike a Paint Pot, you can swipe off some of the product. It doesn't ruin the look, just a factor to consider.
All in all, I'm getting more colors for my MAC arsenal! These would be great for travel, too.

PLEASE MAKE THESE PERMANENT
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant, eyes
I already did a review but another thing I forgot to add was if you can't make more of them or if you can't make them all permanent please keep pure flash permanent because I love it. Its natural and beautiful. Its the perfect color I can wear to school because its so natural and beautiful. I know I will hit pan quickly on it so I want it permanent so I can have it forever and use it every day.

a step up from big bounce eyeshadows
Tags +wash of color, sparkle
This is a more creamy than the Big Bounce eyeshadows - in that it's less liquidy than them, but not as thick of a texture as Paint Pot eyeshadows.
I found that the colors were sheer to med buildable - and not med to high coverage - as it says in the description. The brighter colors were esp victim to fade and crease. I also found that the application of these shadows were kinda tricky...its really hard to blend them using any brush, sponge, finger, etc- you just really have to "pat" it on.
If you like sparkly, (I wouldnt call it glitterely though), and a nice sheer wash of color - you'd probably like these - esp for the darker/more natural colors.

Great texture, little product
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant
I bought this in Love Power and the texture is amazing! You can use your finger tip to apply and it lasts all day! My only negative comment about the product is that I used this 3x and on my 3rd use I reached the pan at the bottom...

Absolutely Beautiful Eyeshadows
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant
I LOVE these eyeshadows...I have Backlit and Electroplate which together make a beautiful smokey eye look. I get soooooo many compliments when I wear them. Just in case of any creasing (which I haven't seen yet), I used Bare Canvas Mac Paint as a eyeshadow base primer before applying the colors and they last all day. I plan to purchase more colors soon!

Love/hate
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable
I absolutely love the formula of this eyeshadow!!! It's amazing and goes on so smoothly, very easy to blend. I bought two of these and thought from the size of the packaging that it would last a while...I've only had mine two weeks and I have already hit pan :( they do not last long at all...I would love to buy more because the shadows really are great but I just can't spend that much on a product that doesn't last long

Glad I risked it
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant
I heard it was hard to use but I really liked the color Dynamo so I decided to get it and I was glad I did. At first, it took a couple of tries to find the right brush to use with it but I used brush #239. I love that you can put on a little and just build up the color as necessary. I like to combine it with the MAC eyeshadow phloof or print, both look great.

fantastic
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable
I own several of these in both bright tones and neutral and I love them. I have used several on the cheek (spilling off the eye) which is gorgeous as well as created many eye looks out of them. Using a 242 brush in a firm pressing motion has worked great on the eye with a little paintpot underneath or primer potion. I am obsessed with the finish as well as the color payoff This is the most exciting eye shadow product MAC has had in my opinion in a very long time!!! Way to be the best!!!

Love!
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable
I love this product so much. It's almost creamy and the color is so pigmented. Extremely vibrant and. I got Dynamo and Love Power as a gift but you must be careful because they are so delicate. They are also in a different container. When I received the Love Power it was cracked and I had to return it. At the store I go to they are almost all sold out and it hasn't even been a week yet! This collection is to die for and it will last you a while. Totally worth it!
