Mac Electric Cool Eye Shadows

It's been a while since I've bought products from Mac, but these eye shadows really intrigued me! I love the sponge-like texture and the color pay-off is phenomenal! I plan to use them as a base. Some of them I would wear alone, but I'm sure I would definitely need a base to prevent them from creasing. The site describes them as:
A soft, lightweight, springy formula delivers hue-rich colour in a modern mode. 

 The electric cool eye shadows feel like a hybrid of cream and powder. The finish ranges from a beautiful metallic sheen to metallic glitter. If you don't like high shine, glittery colors, then these are not for you!

I just purchased these today, so I have not had a chance to wear them and test them out. I just wanted to get the swatches for you guys to see.

Unlike other Mac eye shadows these come in a screw top. They do warn to keep the top tight, because these will dry out. They can also shift easily. I was told that if this happens to just press the shadow back into shape with your finger. One of my shadows(Coil)was already shifted when I purchased it, but when I pressed it with my finger it smooshed back into place.

I believe that some of my favorite tools to use with these shadows will be my fingers, Mac 242 brush, and the Shu Uemura 10 brush. I may even try my Hakuhodo kokutan  eye shadow sg, and my Mac 239 or 217 brush.

The eye shadows are 2.1g/.07 oz. and are $18.50 each. Compared to Mac's regular shadows that are 1.5g/.05 oz. for $15.00. They can be purchased here.

Pictures were taken in both sunlight and shade.

~Brilliantly Lit-chartreuse(multi-color shimmer)
~Fashion Circuit-teal(multi-color shimmer)
~Switch to Blue-royal blue(multi-color shimmer)
~Blacklit-black(multi-color shimmer)

I was a bit disappointed by Dynamo. I thought it would have a stronger color pay-off, but it was really sheer!
I love the pigmentation on the other colors, and feel like I will use these often! I just have to see how they apply and if they wear well with my base.

Sidenote: I have not forgotten about part 3 to my crease brush series, it is coming soon!
