I bought these 3 eyeshadows a while ago on a whim. My other half was back in the UK and popped into MAC and called me and said "I'm in MAC, what do you want?". So on impulse and feeling adventurous I picked some beautiful and vibrant colours from the website and texted him my "order".
I picked Electric Eel, Atlantic blue and Vibrant Grape. When I actually got them I put them to the side for a while and kept meaning to test them and write about them but never got round to until recently.
Now I love the colours and I was looking forward to experimenting with them, but as soon as I swatched them I couldn't help but feel a little deflated.
All the MAC eyeshadows I own are normally well pigmented but as you can see from the photo above Atlantic Blue and Vibrant Grape aren't that pigmented. Electirc Eel is lovely and vibrant but I can't help but feeling a little let down by the other shades. I was imaging creating a striking look with these colours.
They are perfect if you're looking for a softer more subtle look, but I'll need to re-think my plans. I'm hoping I maybe just got a bad batch, as according to other peoples blogs the colours are quite striking
They won't go to waste and I'll still use them of course, but I wanted to share them with you as they are such beautiful colours still.
Do you own these shades? How do you find them?
