Tropic Cool Times Nine

MAC Tropic Cool Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows in an assortment of yellow, green, and blue. It’s a bolder, brighter set of shades, but it also had a very smoldering edge with the deeper blue and bluish-gray inclusions. As you might expect, the yellowy shades need a primer to look as they do in the pan, but I also had some trouble with two of the darker blues.

MAC Fresh Blade Eyeshadow

MAC Fresh Blade Eyeshadow

Fresh Blade

Fresh Blade is a pale, muted gold with subtle, war undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was soft, smooth, and bendable–not at all dry or firm in the pan. It applied with rich, opaque color coverage that lasted for eight hours on me.

MAC Bright-Sided Eyeshadow

MAC Bright-Sided Eyeshadow

Bright-Sided

Bright-Sided is a medium yellow with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had medium pigmentation, which was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage but was hard to achieve full, even coverage without the use of primer or a stronger base underneath it. The consistency was soft, a little dusty, and thinner. It wore well for seven hours on me.

MAC Lemon Rush Eyeshadow

MAC Lemon Rush Eyeshadow

Lemon Rush

Lemon Rush is a bright, green-tinged yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was like a really, really yellow-leaning chartreuse, but on the lid, I could barely tell there was a green-tint! The consistency was soft without being too dusty or powdery, though it was thinner and harder to build up coverage without a primer or base. I noticed fading after seven hours of wear.

MAC Lady Grey Eyeshadow

MAC Lady Grey Eyeshadow

Lady Grey

Lady Grey is a muted, light sage green with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage with a second layer. The eyeshadow was firmer in the pan but remained blendable when I used it on the lid. The color wore nicely for seven and a half hours.

MAC Neoprene Green Eyeshadow

MAC Neoprene Green Eyeshadow

Neoprene Green

Neoprene Green is a medium-dark emerald green with cooler undertones and a pearly sheen. The color payoff was good, but the texture was crumbly and drier to the touch; if I pressed and buffed the color onto the lid, it appeared smooth and even, but there was a chunkiness present that I’ve seen more often with red-hued shades. The color stayed on for eight hours and stained slightly.

MAC She's a Model Eyeshadow

MAC She's a Model Eyeshadow

She's a Model

She’s a Model is a blackened navy blue with flecks of lighter blue sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a dusty, chunky texture where the shimmer and sparkle seemed to come away from the base powder, which made it messy to use and hard to blend out. The color faded after seven hours of wear.

MAC Liquid Sky Eyeshadow

MAC Liquid Sky Eyeshadow

Liquid Sky

Liquid Sky is a bright, medium blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was great–just a touch shy of opaque coverage–and had a soft, finely-milled texture that was soft enough to remain blendable but had enough substance to it that it did not sheer out on the lid and maintained its vibrancy once applied. It wore well for eight hours on me.

MAC Blue Envy Eyeshadow

MAC Blue Envy Eyeshadow

Blue Envy

Blue Envy is a bright, medium-dark cobalt blue with strong, cool undertones (almost leans purple) with a soft, forsted sheen. It had opaque color coverage that went on smoothly and evenly without the aid of primer. The consistency was firmer but I had no trouble blending out the eyeshadow on my lid. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

MAC Grey Horizon Eyeshadow

MAC Grey Horizon Eyeshadow

Grey Horizon

Grey Horizon is a muted, bluish black with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage, while the eyeshadow had a soft, dusty texture that sheered out a bit on the lid. Blending and diffusing the edges took some extra effort, but it was manageable, despite the richness of the color. It wore for just over eight hours on me.
