MAC Peacocky Mega Metal Shadows

To continue with my MAC reviews and swatches, here are my new Mega Metal Eyeshadows from MAC's Peacocky Collection! I bought Dalliance as part of my birthday haul, but the other two were bought for me by my lovely bf as part of my birthday present <3

From MAC's website, the Mega Metal Shadows are described as:

A colour-rich, light-reflecting gleam combined with a creamy application that invites blending, layering, shaping, while remaining crease-resistant. A brilliant choice for all those seeking the ultimate metallic finish.

but i also like Christine's (from Temptalia) description:

Mega Metal Shadows are long-wearing and consists of metallic powders that provide a light-reflection, intense metallic finish that looks brilliant on the skin. It delivers medium-buildable coverage that won’t fade or crease. The formula contains vitamins a & e, antioxidants that help condition the delicate eye area. The creamy powder ensures an even, smooth application that lasts all day and easily blends with little fall-out.

The descriptions of the 3 shadows i own are:

Tweet Me - Gold bronze

Prance - Frosted mauve pearl

Dalliance - Light champagne  (although this can seem like a white gold shade, i believe this definitely has a tint of pewter green in many angles! soo gorgeous and unique!)

I have to say, these eyeshadows are absolutely gorgeous!! they have so much shimmer and shine in them that they look soo pretty from every angle :)

difference from eyeshadows in MAC's permanent collection:
although i dont have much experience, i do have to say that these feel more buttery than the normal shadows do. they blend amazingly well and have very high pigmentation (imho, slightly better pigmentation than the normal shadows). also, these definitely pack in much more shimmer! however, the main difference is the size. these shadows are almost double the size as the normal ones! but with a bigger size, there is also a higher price tag :( but overall, i do think these shadows are really good to have in your collection!!

size comparison!
you can see my previous swatch & review of the shadows in the quad here

Overall, i am really loving these shades! Although i have yet to test out tweet me and prance in an eye look, i really do love dalliance! Either just in the inner corners or all over the lid, this shade is definitely unique! although its a light subtle shade, it really does pack in a ton of gorgeous shimmer! As with the other MAC shadows i recently reviewed, i will be posting eye looks once i play around more and take some pictures :)

ohh and before i forget, here are some swatches of the some of the other mega metal shadows from the MAC store :) - note, these were taken with my iphone lol so no macroshot :(

and a little comparison between Prance and phloof! (part of the permanent collection)

These appear to be VERY similar, especially on camera. But in reality, i do believe Prance has a lot more shimmer and shine as well as a stronger hint of lavender.

Anyways, thats it for todays post! Next time i will be reviewing MAC's FIX + !! :D hope you all have a great day!
