MAC Shadows pictured left to right:
Poison Pen: A deep mid-tone grayish purple shade
Fig 1: Eggplant shade.
Post Haste: A bright berry pink.
Pen "n" Pink: a lovely opalish pink
Newly Minted: Sea Green
Flourishing: Moss Green
Copperplate: Muted mid-toned gray. This is the clear winner with all the shades. It is a richly pigmented taupe color.
Handwritten: Rich fudge brownie shade that is a must have for brown shadow lovers.
It takes just one quick swipe of these colors to get the rich deep shades that normally have only been achieved by pure pigments. MAC describes the shadows as performing like "powdered ink"...and this is accurate.
They feel extra rich and creamy than their usual shadow formulas. It is like applying cashmere to your eyelids.
The lasting power is also more impressive. They stay put and the pigment power never waivers throughout the day. There is also less mess with very little dusting or fly aways.
I am hoping MAC expands the line and makes it a regular option in their collections.
It sure kicks the "pan" of the other shadows.
Sorry for the bad makeup pun.
