MAC Nocturnals Pigments & Glitter in Silver/Violet (Holiday 2013)

I know I probably should have posted about these in the days after Christmas, but unfortunately, I'm just getting round to it now. I appreciate that these may not be as readily available online or in-store as they were in the past couple of months, but I still wanted to share these with you all. Even if you can't find this anywhere, know that at least two of the shades are in the permanent collection! MAC is my favourite make-up brand and I always get so excited when I receive any of their products as a gift. I don't usually opt for pigments when it comes to buying MAC eye products as they are generally quite messy and I just prefer pressed shadows. Nevertheless, I will still endeavour to use these as best I can. I think these colours in particular would be great for an evening look. For now, here's some photos!

L-R: Vanilla (permanent), Kitschmas (permanent), Pink (glitter), Push The Edge (repromote), Grey (glitter)

Swatched L-R: Kitschmas, Vanilla, Grey (glitter), Push The Edge, Pink (glitter)



Grey (glitter)

Pink (glitter)

Push The Edge

All of these shades look gorgeous in their own right but going by the swatches, there could be a few hits or misses. Vanilla and Kitschmas are undeniably stunning when reflected in the light and their pigmentation is nice and opaque. Push The Edge appears to be the weakest of the bunch, as it's colour pay-off is not as bold as it appears to be in the packaging. A real judgement can only be made once I wear it on my eyes, so hopefully this performs better when actually worn as intended. The glitters were pretty damn difficult to swatch, but I think used with an eye-safe glitter adhesive, they would create a beautiful mass of sparkly goodness on the eyes! This kit will sit proudly in my ever-growing MAC collection. I just hope it really wows me when I go to try them out!

  1. They all look fabby! Push The Edge is a gorgeous shade of purple and although I tend to stay away from glitters (far too messy for me!) Grey looks beautiful!
