Company’s Description

Creamy yet weightless, powerful metallic chrome colour in limited-edition shades. Combination of large and small particle pearls gives shimmering, multi-dimensional sparkle. Layers for intense vibrancy or blends easily for soft shine. Ophthalmologist tested.

This review is for the four (4) limited edition Powerchrome Eye Pencils releasing with MAC’s Temperature Rising Collection for Spring 2013. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:

  • Rich Glance: Light gold
  • Copper Strip: Frosty mid-tone copper
  • Life’s Luxury: Deep bronze brown
  • Polished Jet: Charcoal with pearl



Rich Glance is a frosted, very pale gold. Copper Strip is a milk chocolate brown with a golden sheen. Life’s Luxury is a deep brown with red pearls. Polished Jet is a charcoal with silver glitter that flashes an almost-forest-green color.

These pencils have a very creamy formula, so you won’t have to tug at your lids or find that they skip. The colors have great pigmentation. And the shades go a long time without creasing–at least six (6) hours without primer, and for over eight (8) with primer. You can use this product as an eye liner, eye shadow, or base.

Each pencil weighs 0.055 ounces and costs $21.00 each. This is a very small amount of product given the amount you are paying–more expensive than almost all of MAC’s competitor brands.

    Oh, nice…I like Rich Glance and Polished Jet…Nice to see everything in this collection isn’t disappointing (kinda disappointed with everything else except the blushes).

    I’ve swatched these in store and loved them- particularly the two brown ones! Great review x

  3. Louise says:

    Polished Jet looks lovely! I find these sorts of eyeshadows much easier to apply than regular ones, may have to check them out despite the price :)
