This collection is featuring Electric Cool eye shadows, which are a newly improved reformulation of the Big Bounce eye shadows.  I was not a fan of the Big Bounce eye shadows the first time around, as I found them to crease very easily but I might be willing to give these a try.  Pure Flash!, Superwatt, and Coil are colors that are right up my alley.  I'm keeping fingers crossed and hoping for the wear of the Maybelline Color Tattoos.  Which I currently love!

I'm thinking about picking up the Smokey Eye Kit #1.  Assuming the eye shadows are a full size, I think it's a good value.  Plus they are colors that I have previous owned and would love to have back in my current collection.  

Are you planning on shopping this collection?  Are you going to try the Electric Cool eye shadows?



  1. Is this going to be available at wolfchase or nordsdrom only??? Boooooooooooooo!!!! I don't like ordering online bc I want to swatch!

    1. I'm pretty sure it will only be at Nordstrom. I know what you mean, but I'm fortunate to have a Nordstrom close by. Wolfchase totally needs one!
