MAC Electric Cool Eye Shadows in "In Orbit" & "Electroplate": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
New from MAC comes a limited edition 16-shade shadow range called the Electric Cool Eye Shadows ($26 CAD). Featuring a frosty and creamy formulation, these shadows have a springy texture with high blendability and pigmentation. To see some swatches, click......

The Electric Cool Eyeshadows come in a black plastic eyeshadow compact with a twist-off lid. I guess the formulation of these made them unsuitable for the traditional flip-cap shadow compacts but the twist-off cap is definitely not as convenient as the flip-caps.

The Electric Cool shadows are pressed shadows with an almost spongy, creamy texture. The texture is absolutely delightful and buttery. Both shades are packed with shimmers, "In Orbit" is a golden champagne with more sparkles than pigments while "Electroplate" is a soft grey with equal amounts of pigments and silver shimmers. These apply and blend really nicely and they give a really pretty metallic sheen to the lids.

The formulation of these is superb! I love the buttery soft texture and the metallic sheen. I'm very interested in how the brighter shades from the range fare but these two neutrals are definitely worth checking out.

The MAC Electric Cool Eye Shadows are available for a limited time online and in stores.
