Flashtronic is one of those collections that seems like it looks a whole lot prettier than it actually is once you take it home and start using it. Each mineralize shadow sure looks divine in the pot, with all those swirls and veins of glitter, but the color you get? Kind of drab, nothing overtly amazing or special.

Flashtronic & Rushmetal are both on the United States’ site for preview and purchase! I definitely say check it out if you can’t in person. Remember, both of these launch July 19th in most stores. If you’re unsure, call your local store or counter to verify the launch date, but you might need to speak with several people – not every makeup artist is as knowledgeable about dates as us addicts are!
*sigh* Why doesn’t MAC reward me for all the promoting I do? Then I could afford this entire collection, haha
Enjoy lovelies, and be sure to post your hauls here! I’d love to hear what you bought and your opinions of the collections.
Hey lovelies! I thought I’d do a quick post because the French MAC site has the two collections up as well as the looks for Flashtronic already. The US site probably won’t have these up until next Tuesday.
