The Mega Metal eyeshadows are unique because they are the size of a Cream Colour Base, as opposed to a normal shadow, and contain 3.4 grams of product in each. They are retailing for $19.50, which when you look at gram-to-dollar ratio is a lot cheaper than the permanent eyeshadows in MAC's collection.
Sex-pectations is a color I completely overlooked in promo photos because I usually shy away from reds, because they can make the eyes look tired. However, once I saw this in person and swatched it, I couldn't resist! This color is exactly what I wished Coppering was; it's much less orange and more burnt red.
Unflappable was the first shadow that caught my eye when photos for this collection were released. It is a very dark brown with almost a plum/purple tone to it, and it's absolutely gorgeous. I've seen a lot of photos of this one online and in some it looks really black and almost grey, but trust me, this is definitely a brown. It's just really dark!
In my eyes, Noir Plum is the prettiest color in the collection. It's a purple with a royal blue duochrome look to it, and is everything I've wished Nocturnelle eyeshadow would be. I plan on wearing this over a dark base on my lids!
Dalliance is another shade that I really overlooked in promo photos, because it looks like a green tinted gold, and personally that sounds hideous to me. Once I swatched this one is store though, I was hooked. You can't see any of the green tint once it is applied, and it has the prettiest sheen out of all of the eyeshadows in this collection. I did not have a color like this already!
I think the biggest perk about these shadows is the pigmentation and texture. They are incredibly pigmented with one swipe of the finger or brush, and don't crumble at all! I was amazed that there was no crumbling in the pan or falling off of my brush, because most products always crumble a little bit. The MAC artist at the counter I purchased these from said they are supposed to be crease resistant, therefore you shouldn't need a primer, but I am yet to test that theory. I plan on priming these anyway.
Did you pick up anything from the Peacocky collection?
