MAC Power Chrome Eye Pencils in Rich Glance & Polished Jet
One of the hot items within MAC's Temperature Rising collection are the new Power Chrome eye pencils.
I thought they'd be right up my alley and I was right. Metallic , shimmer, easy use- gimme.
These new pencils come in 4 shades and are much wider than eyeliner pencil and like what we call a chubby pencil these days, but a bit thinner.
Power Chrome's have a lot of summer shimmer and pigment. They glide on easily with a somewhat creamy finish but are a slightly dry formula and so far seem to last long. I haven't had a chance to test the wear all day but after about 6 hours through a damp day/evening they've done well. For me that's very good. The gold shade , Rich Glance is a pretty nude gold that wears well on it's own or with deeper shades. Polished Jet is a deep black with shimmer . Copper Strip ( mid- tone copper) and Life's Luxury ( deep brone brown) round out the shades.
Size wise I do feel these could be a little bigger. They are soft so will need sharpening often and they measure about 3 1/2 inches long. Other than that, I like them and want to see how the bronze looks in person.
MAC Power Chrome Eye Pencils are $ 21 and on sale May 23.
