MAC Blue Eyeshadows - Review and Swatches

I have really let blogging about my MAC eyeshadow collection slip. So I am back at it. I have a stack of eyeshaow palettes that I am busy trying to get through for you guys and review. So more about that coming soon. In the are the MAC blue eyeshadows that I own. I have a bad feeling that I have forgotten one. I will let you know if I have.

From left to right - Swan Lake, Moon's Reflection, Tilt, Electric Eel and Contrast. I really like Swan Lake, but I must confess I never wear it. It is a light blue grey and it is a bit unusual. Swan Lake is from the MAC Danse Collection circa 2006. I think it along with French Grey are the first limited edition MAC eyeshadows that I ever bought.

I have no love for Moon's Reflection. This is a regret purchase for me. I bought it to add a light blue to my inner corner when I am doing a blue look. When I wear it with Tilt, the two look almost identical on. You can't tell where one ends and the other begins. Tilt is the better of the two. Whenever I wear Tilt, my husband usually comments that he likes the colour on me.

From left to right here are the swatches - Swan Lake, Moon's Reflection, Tilt, Electric Eel and Contrast.

I love Electric Eel. This has to be one of MAC's best eyeshadows and this is not a colour you see very often. Because it is so loud, I seldom wear it, but when I do, I remember how much I love it. It looks awesome in the outer corner with light green eyeshadows on the lid. It's smooth and super easy to work with. Finally, we have Contrast. I want to love Contrast, but I just don't. The colour is a nice navy purple, but I find it to be a bit rough, slightly chalky and a pain in the ass to work with. At the end of the day these are MAC eyeshadows so like pizza, even when it's not so great, it's still good!
