The MAC Reel Sexy Collection is out now; have you seen it?  It’s a limited-edition collection with a flair for the dramatic, with ads featuring Kristen McMenamy.  I was sent two of the Pro Palette Eye Shadow Duos to review; read on for my thoughts.

Within the MAC Reel Sexy Collection, there are four Pro Palette Eye Shadow Duos.  Each eyeshadow duo contains two finishes, the shade on the right of each palette is a matte.  The four palettes include:

Dynamic Duo 1 Coral with yellow pearl (veluxe pearl) and Clean purple (matte)

Dynamic Duo 2 Violet duochrome with pearl (frost) and Clean violet (matte)

Dynamic Duo 3 Dirty-toned purple (veluxe pearl) and Teal blue (matte)

Dynamic Duo 4 Mid-tone pink (satin) and Blackened violet (matte)

I love when MAC Collections include eyeshadow in duos or quads.  The Dynamic Duos I tested were, overall, very wearable color combinations.  Dynamic Duo 1 is actually a great neutral that could be worn everyday.  Dynamic Duo 4 was a mixed blessing.  While I loved the Blackened Violet shade (I’ll use this one right to the bottom of the pan, I just know it!), the mid-tone pink shade just didn’t do it for me.  I found the pigmentation a bit lacking.  It applies very lightly and in order to get good color payoff, you need to really pile it on.

The MAC Reel Sexy Collection Dynamic Duos retail at $27.50 and are available at MAC counters and online at  Have you tried any of the pieces in the Reel Sexy Collection?  What did you think?
