The collection includes a literal rainbow of eyeshadow shades — some pulled from the ranks of the pro-only shadows, a few repromotes from the regular permanent line, and a few new-and-limited edition shades.
For me the shadows fell into three texture groups: good, okay, and hard to work with. Some of the shades were lovely, smooth, and very pigmented (Sky Blue, Zingy, Crazy Cool). But others (Free to Be, Lime, Aqua, Atlantic Blue, Shock-a-holic) took a lot of work to swatch. I really had to pack those colors on.
The letters in parentheses tell you the shadow’s finish: Matte, Frost, Satin, and Veluxe Pearl.
The new, limited edition shades are Louder, Please, Sassy Grass, Zingy, Crazy Cool, and Shock-o-holic. Going Bananas is also limited edition, but we’ve seen it before. Lime, Aqua, and Sky Blue are pro colors. Free to Be, Winkle, and Atlantic Blue are permanent. All potted MAC shadows are $14.50 each.
