FLASHTRONIC
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. Some of them are kind of chalky, even, which is definitely not something to rave about. The lipglasses were interesting in terms of opacity, because they weren’t very sheer and sort of dull in color, but not in a bad way.

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.

Launches July 19th, 2007

Illuminating, soft yet electric, colour and light fused to perfection. Captured by the light-reflecting, slow-baked, naturally shaded mineralize skinfinish and the multi-shades and shimmering ambient effects of our six new limited edition shades of mineralize eye shadow. Torched by our four impeccable shades of high-reflective lipglass, this is the subtle shine that adds to your dash, flash and flare. Arrives on counter with the proper complement of brushes: the 134 large powder brush for applying skinfinish and the 227 large fluff brush to shadow the eyes. Catch the light, while you can. Limited edition.

Mineralize Eye Shadow and Skinfinish Profile
A sheer, pearled, mineralized powder eye shadow with up to four shades baked together in one pan. Superfine, lightweight: provides a softly tinted, reflective shimmer on the skin with a delicate sense of dimension. Subtly builds colour and shine. Can be worn on face, eye or body.
