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.
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.
Make sure you read my original, in-depth review for these eyeshadows here. This post only contains photos and swatches of the first half of the shades that will launch on May 5th. Each retails for $16.50. I just did heavier swatches here (I used whatever stuck to the spatula I used to fish each shade out), but these can go from sheer to medium coverage.
Though MAC’s Flighty Collection has stirred up buzz over the Big Bounce Shadows, there are also four shades of colored Zoom Lash Mascara. I have Green is Green ($14.00 for 0.28 oz.) to review for now (the rest to follow once I have them–probably not late this week or early next). This shade is described as “jade green,” and it’s a dark, cool-toned green with a little hint of teal. The actual tube is similarly colored.
It’s really important to me to really test out products in full before reviewing them, which is why I will not be posting my reviews for the new Big Bounce Shadows until tomorrow or Sunday (depending on how today’s testing goes). I’m trying to test them for a full twelve hours today, which is why I can’t get a review up immediately.
