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.
The colored mascaras, based on the two I have tested so far, seem worth checking out, but Zoom Lash is a thicker, denser formula, and those who prefer really defined, crisp, but long, lashes may find it too much.

Recommendations by Skin Tone
Please note that this section is merely suggesting shades that would complement a particular skin tone better than other shades, but these lists are meant to be rather exhaustive of the entire collection; it’s not reflective of must-haves for your skin tone. When it comes to cooler/warmer skin tones, these are products that lean noticeably cool/warm and therefore complement the corresponding skin tone better (but it does not mean you can’t wear a warmer product if you’re cooler!).
