There are four new and limited edition Eyeshadows ($14.50 for 0.05 oz.) in MAC’s Mickey Contractor Collection. They include: Marvel (deep purple with soft pink pearl), Oomph (forest green with soft gold pearl), Rani (bright fuchsia with soft pink pearl), and Saffron (deep coral caramel).
Oddly enough, it is the neutral shade (Saffron) which has the best pigmentation and smoothest texture. The other shades were a little disappointing in pigmentation, and I think they are easier to dupe. Also, noteworthy, Oomph only has 0.04 oz., while the other three are the typical 0.05 oz. size. I wonder why that is!
MAC Mickey Contractor will be available on January 6th at select North American stores and January 2011 for select international stores. It will be available online on approximately January 4th but may not be available until the 6th.
FINAL THOUGHTS: I would skip Marvel, consider Oomph and Rani, while Saffron would be my top pick. I’m not keen on handing out an overall rating across four eyeshadows with varying pigmentation issues. Saffron certainly does not deserve a lower rating because Marvel suffers from pigmentation and textural issues! Saffron lies in the B+/A- range, while Marvel is at the bottom at a C/C+ range. Oomph and Rani hover around a B/B-.
