'Center Stage Prance' Look
I must say I have been liking these new MAC Mega Metal Eyeshadows. The finish is just so divine. They are super metallic and frosty without being chunky or glittery. I even went and picked up Dalliance and Prance (I have Saadeh/Shadowy Lady - BeautySpot to thank for enabling me) even though the lighter shades didn't grab me. I will do an additional swatch post with these eyeshadows later on tonight. For sure Dalliance is a must-have from this collection. i also picked up So Vain Lipcolor because it is just a gorgeous muted coral color.
Note: The eyeshadows work best on a tacky or damp base and won't stick as well to dry skin or a dry base.
