MAC Electric Cool Eyeshadow Review, Photos, Swatches (Part 1)

B-
If you really, really love shimmering, sparkling finishes, you might consider checking out the formula and seeing if it's worth the effort. If you want to wear them alone as washes of color, they're definitely worth a look.

  1. Fashion Circuit, Dynamo (this one is SO gorgeous!!!), and Electric Plate are the ones I’m eyeing. Still not sure about the texture, but I’m willing to give it a go!

    I like Electroplate and Dynamo the best from this group,  but I’m a little bit cautious because Electroplate looks like an interesting color in the swatch but not applied to the eye in your review/test, and I really like the color of Dynamo but I would use it very blended or as a wash, and when you say “it wasn’t the nicest shade to blend” my hopes sank. My two favorites so far have been KO’d.

    I like some of these and am not crazy about the colours of a few of them. And it seems so odd that some seem to fill the pan while others are pulled from the sides a bit or a lot.  What a strange variety in what is supposed to be the same product formula (I think).  But I realize that all the shades I like are versions of shadows I already have. It alarms me to say it, but I think I’ve reached “eye shadow saturation point”.

    •  @Mariella *gasp*  .. LoL :)

    •  @Mariella I think it a sight of dry out consider most cream/gel product dose this as well. ;) See these swatches make the me realize I DO have dupes of Fashion Circuit and Dynamo i was eyeing to round out my Yaby Pearl Paint palette. Fashion Circuit there is not a shade in my Yaby but if I mix a blue and a green I do get this shade.

    @DeltaCephei They’re not loose, they’re spongy.

      @temptalia Ah okay, I was under the impression when I saw the promo’s that they were a solid shadow so your pictures confused me LOL!

  5. I said I would take a pass, but I  am curiously drawn to Brilliantly Lit.. the chartreuse colour.  I have a Vince tank top in this colour and a matching Makowsky handbag I picked up on eBay for less than $50 buckerooos.  I wear the tank under this fabulous crochet ‘over coat’.. I don’t know how else to describe it.  Anyhow, lots of compliments whenever I wear so I thought it would look kinda cool to just have a hint of this colour in my makeup..perhaps on the inner third of my lid.  This could also be something I pick up for next to nothing on eBay when the initial frenzy has worn off.. :)
     
    Great work, Christine and all the photos are so helpful with the colours and quality as always!

    Wow, I really like the bright colors in this collection, especially Fashion Circuit.  I don’t usually spend that much on eyeshadows, but I may have to get one or two of these!

    This is what I absolutely hate about MAC, we’ve seen all of these colours and shades before.  Just because they put them in different collections and give them fancy new names does not change that fact.  Dynamo however, would make a gorgeous blush.

  8. Oh my, they just ALL look messed up in their pan…

  9. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Emily 18thCenturyFox

    Oh No- Electroplate is like the Bad Boy my momma warned me about… I know I should just say No but he’s so complicated…and sorta unusual and I think maybe I can make him work when other girls couldn’t … I need to stop these kind of relationships!

  10. They all look awful in the pan as far as quality and texture goes… Or is that just me? I like the colors, though, but I’m not blown away by them.

  11. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Rebecca verybecca

    Seems like MAC rushed through yet another LE release of a product they hadn’t quite gotten right. Saves me money…thanks for sharing!

  12. BIs4beauty

    I got dynamo, electroplate, and fashion circuit and I really love them! I wanted to get Brilliantly lit but when I swatched it was looking more golden yellow than like lime yellow (if that makes sense?). But maybe it was the lighting in the store…

  13. I just…what? MAC, what is going on with you guys? I’ll pass. Electroplate was the only one that caught my eye, really. 

  14. Marta

    Is Brillantly Lit similar to Going bananas from the Dare to wear collection?

  15. heidi

    These eye shadows is limited edition or permanent ?
