These new MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow Trio from the 2008 Red She Said Holiday Collection well, suck. I was not impressed with these. I saw them online and I was so siked. The metallic colors looked wonderful. The colors looked rich and saturated. I got to try these in person and I was so disappointed. First, things first. The metallic centers of these are so weak. I wanted gilded, foiled eyes. Instead the gold or silver centers were weak, invisible except for unattractive metallic glitter flakes. Not cool. The other two colors were weak too. They had pigment unlike the metallic centers but were really light in comparison to other MAC eye shadows. I did sample these dry so maybe if used wet they are pigmented. Do comment if you have used these damp.

These come in six trios that retail for $17.50. I didn’t purchase any because I found them boring. Danger Zone seemed like it would be the most interesting because it has a metaillic midnight black, silver and metallic lipstick red. Instead it came out boring and washed out. I thought I would like Inter-View because it has a deep shimmery peacock navy, gold and deep rusty wine. Nope, boring. I found all of them boring. Oh, well.
