MAC Eyeshadow x 9: Tropic Cool Times Nine Photos and Swatches & Work It Out Collection Mascaras

Today MAC Cosmetics launches more exciting Spring 2017 collections online and in stores. The first is 6 new Eyes on MAC Eyeshadow palettes while the second is the Athleisure inspired MAC Work It Out Collection with a range of colorful, high performance hues. The third is the Great Brows collection. Today I’ll be sharing some bits and pieces of the newness that is launching today and I hope that you will find the information and swatches helpful. 

I am a huge fan of the well edited MACx9 eyeshadow palettes, reviewed here and here.  I find that the coordinating shades contained within are very complementary to one another and there is a good mix of eyeshadows that come in different finishes whether it be matte, satin or frosty hues. I find them to be pigmented, easy to blend and perfectly compact to take with you on-the-go. 

There are four new Eyeshadow x9 palettes that join old favorites and they are priced at $32 each. Today I’ll be sharing photos and swatches of the Tropic Cool Times Nine palette which is officially described as a mix of lush tropical inspired hues. There are some really fun bold pops of color that I think would be perfect for spring and summer. The shades are versatile to work with and there’s a good mix of shades to take you from day to night. The other palettes include: 

Semi-Sweet Times Nine

Solar Glow Times Nine 

Red Hot Times Nine

Burgundy Times Nine


  • Fresh Blade: Pale frosted yellow (VLXP)
  • Bright-Sided: Canary yellow (Satin)
  • Lemon Rush: Bright yellow lime green (Matte)
  • Lady Grey : Soft muted gray-green (Satin)
  • Neoprene Green : Kelly green with pearl (VLXP)
  • She’s a Model : Blackened teal with pearl (Lustre)

 MAC also launches today their Athletic Inspired Work It Out Collection, which includes 16! yes 16 new In Extreme Dimension Mascaras in a range of vibrant rich hues. I have three to share with you today. They are priced at $19.50 each and the full range of shades include:

I adore the fun names which relate to all to working out such as No Pain, No Gain  & Squat it Sugar.  I think that these colors are so fun to wear for a bright pop of color for Spring and Summer. This is not your everyday type of mascara and this will not work for everyone. We all have different preferences when if comes to makeup. However, if you live for color, this will be for you! Swatches to follow below.  

The collection is NOW available online and in stores today, March 2nd-April 13th. What will you be picking up? I have the coconut mini fix plus on my radar!

You can also find MAC Cosmetics products sold at Nordstroms, Macys, and Bloomingdales.

Thank you for stopping by today.
