A new generation of texture, this buoyant, spongy formula provides coverage, colour and wear with a unique, flawless finish. Formula builds seamless coverage without heaviness or caking. Creamy to the touch and easy to apply and blend. Provides medium to buildable coverage for a soft wash of pearl or a vibrant pop of colour.
MAC’s A Novel Romance Collection includes the release of 8 Electric Cool Eyeshadows:
- Pure Flash!: Pale champagne (Repromote)
- Love Power: Soft shimmering rose (Repromote)
- Superwatt: Light shimmering taupe (Repromote)
- Coil: Copper bronze (Repromote)
- Gilded Thrill: Gold
- Switch to Blue: Rich cobalt (Repromote)
- Highly Charged: Rich purple with pink pearl (Repromote)

But only one of the 8 is a new shade–Gilded Thrill. The other 7 were previously released and reviewed on this website. I have hyperlinked the 7 re-promoted shades to the reviews that have already been done for them so that you can see swatches and my thoughts on those shades.

I am also giving away one of the A Novel Romance lipsticks to one viewer! Please see the video overview of this collection for details on how to win!
Gilded Thrill is a sparkling gold-copper. This shade consists of gold pigment and sparkling copper flecks. The pigment and flecks are numerous, making Gilded Thrill and even layer of beautiful color. This is a lovely lid shade.
The Electric Cool formula has a sponge-powder-gel consistency. It’s very soft and smooth. It can also be used damp or dry. When used damp, it’s just a little more metallic and intense.
Given that MAC makes no claims to these being crease-resistant, the formula goes a surprising length of time on the bare lid before showing signs of creasing. Electric Cool goes 3.5-4 hours without primer before creasing, and goes 6+ hours over primer.
I will note the significant increase in the price of the Electric Cool Eye Shadows, though, by almost $3.00.
