MAC Flighty Product Photos and Swatches

Published in: MAC Makeup

Whatever Tabby wants, Tabby gets! That’s right, Tabs threatened to swipe the living crap out my ankles if I didn’t take product pictures and swatch the new MAC Flighty collection, ASAP (damn cat).


He’s especially excited about the new Big Bounce Shadows ($16.50), a line of whipped mousse cream eyeshadows with a fluffy texture and pearly finish that MAC’s adding to their permanent line.

The MAC Flighty collection bounces onto MAC counters May 5 in North America and June internationally.

  1. I say that I looove cream shadows, so if the staying power is good, than I need all of them – cause the colors are stunning!

    Karen! Does High Esteem have shimmer/is it metallic or is it just a dark, matte gray? Thanks! <3

  4. Sherry says:

    These are absolutely gorgeous..counting down the days til they become available πŸ™‚

  5. Nina says:

    Wow! These look fabulous! If they wear well then I’m gonna be all over them! πŸ™‚

  9. Jessi says:

    Why are they call Big Bounce? That name is just so weird. I can’t wait to see how you use these in a look Karen! And also how they compare to my HG- Benefit’s creaseless creams.

    Oooooooooo πŸ™‚ gonna get me a few of those……especially Rich,Sweet…sucker for browns. I wonder if they are finger or brush friendly ……?

    Thanks Karen !

  11. Trisha says:

    I really like Spread the Wealth! At least, I like the way it looks in the jar. The swatches seem a little underwhelming to me. You should totally do a look with these.

    OMG, I am COMPLETE obsessed with the summer MAC and NARS summer collections!!

  13. Phyrra says:

    They look like they won’t work on oily lids :/

    • Samantha says:

      I was thinking the same thing… sadly… I’m super oily and these *look* like they won’t even be able to stand up with a primer:(:(

  14. Lynette says:

    My chest actually ached for a second when I saw the cream shadows. I have The Wants. Badly.

  15. Crystal says:

    oh wow just beautiful! can’t wait to see the review!

  16. How is the wear on them? Do they compare to paint pots?

  17. Tammy says:

    Those look so gorg! I hope they don’t crease.

  18. the shadows are definitely interesting! how well do they set?

    wow! the whipped shadows look AMAZING…and i’d love the green mascara

  20. Patty says:

    These look super interesting. What’s the texture of the cream shadows like? They look rather dense and, for lack of a less disgusting word, “moist” for being called a mousse shadow.

  21. Carrie says:

    I know that a lot of people are excited about this collection, but I’m actually more interested in the colored mascaras than the new eye shadows. I’ve already got way too many eye shadows in my collection and I hear that these crease easily and aren’t long-lasting. I hope that’s not true, but they look a little too liquidy in the pot.

  22. Melody says:

    Hmm. :(. I like the sheen they have but they look somewhat sheer to me.

  23. Amber says:

    They look dangerous. I can see myself sitting with this open on the counter while I’m doing my makeup, and then knocking it off with my elbow and eyeshadow splattering everywhere on impact!

  25. Heidi says:

    I love cream shadows, and these look really fun!

  26. Stef Smith says:

    Love, love, love! I don’t have any MAC products, I have been devoted to Benefit and Urban Decay, but I’m thinking a trip to the MAC counter is in my future.

  27. Sylvie says:

    Looks like meringue.

  28. Crissy says:

    These are weird! I love the name though. “Big Bounce” sounds like a hip hop song or the title of a campy movie lol!

  29. Chris25 says:

    Glad to see they are adding mousse shadows to the perm line. πŸ™‚

  30. Marian says:

    These look great! Hope they don’t crease!

  31. Josie says:

    Oh these are beautiful!!! How is the texture? The look so liquidy. Do they dry fast and can you layer them? I already just added 3 of them to my wishlist! So excited! Thanks for posting!

  32. mill says:

    wow… look at that texture! i’m loving the black

  33. Rae says:

    Ooh, they look so… liquidy! I’m really hoping the texture translates well into wear (that is, that they won’t crease) – can’t wait to read the review πŸ™‚

  35. Lauren says:

    thanks for the swatches karen! the big bounce shadows sound really awesome and im glad they are adding them to the permanent line so i have a chance to try them all!

  36. Maya says:

    Do let us know if the shadows stays on. I hope that they are just as good as Bobbi Brown cream shadows. Love those!

  37. Edel says:

    Hi Karen
    Did you get a chance to wear the shadows? If so what did you think of them and do they crease? Also, are they defo permanent as I heard they were going to be limited…..

  38. Brittany says:

    OMG, I pretty much need that green mascara in my life noooow. Gorgeous!

  39. Rica says:

    Omg they’re whipped! I can’t wait to test the texture in store. Thank goodness they will be permanent. No rush, no rush πŸ™‚

    I am really curious to swatch it just to feel the texture – it’s really interesting.

  41. Stephanie says:

    OMG, the cream shadows are amazing!!

  42. Em says:

    I’ve heard from a couple of different blogs and MAC Artists that the Big Bounce shadows are actually Limited Edition. Which, depending on their quality, could be a good or bad thing.

  43. Vonvon says:

    Really thank God this is going to be in the permanent line. At least I don’t have to purchase all the shades that I like and WANT at once! πŸ˜€

  45. Cynthia Morelock says:

    I have to say I am a MAC addict, I’m a huuuge fan of their new stuff….for the most part. I have to say that I have been very disappointed in this last spring release not quite cute, this most recent, and this surf baby……cream shadows for a summer line release, really MAC? I feel these will be an excellent color base, however to use alone, and for greasepot lids like mine, umm..NO!
    Their eyeshadows…grey, teal, white, yellow and pink? I was expecting more of a metallic and pastel line, and again I am a little disappointed. I will buy some of the surf baby, just because I always buy a portion of the limited items and hold onto them. I’m a HUGE fan of the theme quads, I eat those up, even if I don’d care for the colors or they are duplicates, I generally stock up on 2 of each theme quads. Well Power to MAC and better luck next product launch!!
