I reviewed Green is Green initially, and here are swatches of the other three shades, as well as the mascaras worn on lashes. I actually found that Green is Green did the best at coating lashes, with Blue Charge close behind. Plum Reserve and High Esteem didn’t coat my lashes as effectively and didn’t give them much color.
MAC Packed to Go Warm Smokey Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes: Shroom (soft beige with shimmer), Naked Lunch (minimal pink with shimmer), Tempting (sinfully rich coco), Greensmoke (tarnished olive), Stormy Love (dirty brown with green frost), and Showstopper (deep blackened brown). Stormy Love is the only new and exclusive shade here, while Showstopper isn’t available in the permanent range, it has been released several times in the past (it is a favorite to be repromoted).
MAC Packed to Go Cool Smokey Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes: Seedy Pearl (chilled lavender pink), Tendersmoke (muted silver lilac), Satin Taupe (taupe with silver shimmer), A Brown Suit (rich deep red), Beauty Marked (black.red with sparkle pearl), and Carbon (intense black).
MAC Packed to Go was originally a duty free launch, but it’s landed online at maccosmetics.com now. It features several sets of products, and I’m reviewing three of the offerings. The reason I am not reviewing the rest is because they contain products I’ve reviewed in the past or are permanent shades. 4 Lips & Pressed Powder ($38.00) contains four lipglasses: Riviera Ready (warm light nude), Poetic License (pale apricot), Rosehips (mid-tone rosy pink), and Quick Change (mid-tone cool blue rose) along with one powder: Belightful (gilded peach bronze). Poetic License, Rosehips, and Belightful are repromotes.
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.
