Dust Off

MAC Dust Off Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a soft, white gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a drier, more loosely-pressed consistency that had some fallout during application (even when I felt like I tapped away the excess) as it didn’t adhere as well to bare skin. It worked better with a dampened brush (primer was slightly better but not a total problem solver), which helped combine the powder to go onto the lid more smoothly and improved the pigmentation. Alternatively, pressing and gently pushing and patting it on using a flat, synthetic brush worked fairly well but still required a little cleanup afterward. On its own, the eyeshadow wore well for seven hours on me.

Sun Speck

MAC Sun Speck Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium peach with warm undertones and flecks of copper micro-sparkle paired with a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that wasn’t buildable on its own, and it had moderate fallout during application as it seemed to have a looser, drier consistency. I would strongly recommend using this with a dampened brush to improve coverage and adhesion to the lid while minimizing fallout. By itself, the eyeshadow stayed on well for seven hours before it started to look faded.

Sun, Tan and Repeat

MAC Sun, Tan and Repeat Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium, reddish-brown with strong, warm undertones and cooler, green-to-blue shifting pearl. It needed to be layered to have a visible, duochrome effect no the lid, or else, a dampened brush worked well to bring in more depth from the base color while enhancing the shimmery finish. The texture was slightly dry to the touch with moderate slip from the dimethicone in the formula (definitely felt a little different than typical MAC eyeshadows to me). This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours on me.

Slow as You Glow

MAC Slow as You Glow Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, but it wasn’t fully opaque, and there was something about the applied color that looked more faded and had less depth compared to the shade in the pan. The texture was drier with some slip, so it blended out nicely but was prone to sheering out a little quickly so care needed to be paid attention to avoid losing opacity. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

MAC usually does their primary summer (and other major seasonal) collections very well. This one not so much. These eyeshadows look weak. As for the lipsticks and cheek products, they thankfully did a nice job. Still, this is no Fruity Juicy Collection.

Indeed. You reminded me to get out the Glades small palette, and it’s a must for this w/e. The colors and the packaging on Fruity Juicy were first rate.

I’m totally underwhelmed. Kind of dull collection of not-so-great shades. The part of me that loves MAC eyeshadow hopes the next releases will be better; the part of me that spent way too much money on makeup over the last couple months hopes they won’t. ;P

The last good summer collection was alluring aquatics years ago. I’ve been underwhelmed by their summer offerings for years and turn elsewhere for my LE summer “kicks”. They release too much and there’s not enough quality control. Stick with their permanent offerings since they’re generally very good (few duds here and there.)

Sun, Tan and Repeat looks like the ugly sibling of Club. The shadows in this collection are really a pass for me.
