Company’s Description

An Eye Shadow Quad packaged in a limited-edition soft touch bronze compact in four shades: Temperature Rising, Performance Art, Swelter and Beauty Marked. The highly pigmented powder formula applies evenly, blends and builds beautifully.

This review is for the Temperature Rising Eye Shadow Quad releasing with MAC’s Temperature Rising Collection for Spring 2013. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:

  • Performance Art: Frosted gold mauve (Veluxe Pearl)
  • Swelter: Mid-tone grey violet (Frost)
  • Temperature Rising: Light warm tanned peach (Lustre)
  • Beauty Marked: Charcoal black with red pearl (Velvet) (Permanent)

Performance Art is a shimmery, slate lilac. Temperature Rising is a slightly peachy nude at its base and has copper flecks in it. This is a curious color–there’s not much to the base and because the base color is similar to the copper flecks, they don’t reflect noticeably. But if you put this on top of a dark base, you can get the copper flecks to be more noticeable. Swelter is a slightly shimmery, medium slate lavender. Beauty Marked is a deep charcoal with red shimmer.

Beauty Marked is the driest of of the shades, but overall this is a good palette. The shades have good pigmentation and, while they don’t have the creamiest formula, they don’t require too much layering to get an even finish.

For $44.00 you get 5.6 grams (0.19 ounces) of eye shadow. The price increase is purely due to MAC’s use of a different color for the compacts in this collection.
