MAC’s summer superhero-inspired “Electric Wonder” collection has some of the nicest nude shades this season. The limited edition colour collection features a carefully edited group of lipsticks, lipglass, highlighters, bronzers and a standout eyeshadow palette. It’s called the “Desert Lightning” Eyeshadow x 12 palette and it is worth a careful look.
For anyone looking for cool-toned, neutral shades, this palette is for you. These 12 hues are meant to be worn together or on their own – either wet or dry.
The highly-pigmented shadows blend well and flatter most skin tones. Here are the featured shades:
Desert Lightning: light yellow beige (matte)
Duabandita: red with blue pearl (VLXP)
Is It The Beat: deep black (matte)
Retrospeck: beached blonde (lustre)
So Jaded: seafoam green (VLXP)
Deception: cool medium brown (frost)
Fresh Innocence: ivory frosty warm white (frost)
Big Attitude: dirty grey (frost)
Marzipan: muted plumy taupe (matte)
Golden Brown: golden brown (VLXP)
Fool’s Gold: dirty olive gold (frost)
Brun: muted blackish-brown (satin)
You’ll notice that the packaging is a rose gold marble design that features flashes of metal. The shadows are dermatologist-tested, non-acnegenic and safe for contact lens wearers.
