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.

I have the "Life's a luxury" of the pencils and need to get it sharpened now but the pencil is so thick that it will not even be suitable for MAC dual sharpener! So I am now in search for bigger sharpener and I must say I was quite disappointed to discover even MAC sharpener for larger pencil is not enough!
