MAC Flighty Collection: Overall & Recommendations

My general recommendation is not to purchase the Big Bounce Shadows if you want to wear them alone. If, on the other hand, you want to wear them as a colored eyeshadow base, then I think it may be worth considering a shade or two. I do think that with the plethora of cream products out there that are long-wearing, I would opt for some of the more unique shades within the sixteen or perhaps a shade you’d wear very often.

NARS Cap Ferrat Eyeshadow Trio

NARS Cap Ferrat Eyeshadow Trio ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) has launched an Alpes-Maritimes inspired (and limited edition) trio featuring shades of icy sea form, silver grewen, and icy turquoise. Something that readers complained about before was the composition of NARS’ trios–a gradual fading of light to dark with each section a different size, but here, we have three separate pans with each being the same size. I definitely hope to see this design going forward–I think it is more practical.

NARS New Order Blush

NARS New Order Blush ($27.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “soft pink with gold and silver glitter.” It’s actually listed as a “Highlighting Blush Powder,” which is important to note because then the pigmentation level here will be “soft” as described, rather than the intense pigment expected of NARS’ blushes. When NARS says glitter, they really mean it–the glitter flecks here are large and in charge. I found them incredibly noticeable on my cheeks, and later on, I found glitter in my brows and on my chin.

MAC Big Bounce Shadow Swatches, Photos (Part 2)

Make sure you read my original, in-depth review for these eyeshadows here. This post only contains photos and swatches of the second half of the shades that will launch on May 5th. Each retails for $16.50.  I just did heavier swatches here (I just used whatever stuck to the spatula I used to fish each shade out), but these can go from sheer to medium coverage.
