MAC Eyeshadow Nocturnelle Review & Swatches


MAC Eyeshadow Nocturnelle


I am here again with purple eye shadow review and this time I have added two eye looks as well and honestly these are the last ones I did as now I am having conjunctivitis. Will recover soon hopefully . As I am reviewing eye shadows, I am more excited to share all the shades but only once I finish off purple.


MAC Eyeshadow Nocturnelle


Size – 1.5 gm,

Price – 720/- INR, Available – MAC stores across India

Shade – Nocturnelle is described as Pinked up chrome purple, it is neutral toned plumy purple colour with subtle pink tones to it, a beautiful shade with soft frosty sheen to it, beautiful in pan and even more wonderful on eyes. The sheen is finely milled and there is no fallout even if you use it in the crease with fluffy brush, it just packs without being messy.

Texture – it is from FROST finish range which is my absolute favourite, they do have some bummers but this is out and out fantastic colour. The texture is soft and creamy and packs a lot of colour in one single swipe without being powdery and the pearly sheen is another plus point.

Pigmentation – It hardly needs any layering, I feel if it is packed on paint pot there is little bit of layering required but on creamy primer it is opaque in single layer.

Staying power – Most of the frost finish stays pretty well with a primer, i.e. 7 – 8 hrs on my oily lids but without a primer they tend to fade off in 3 – 4 hrs.

What I like about MAC Eyeshadow Nocturnelle:

  • I love how gorgeous the purple colour is – very easy to use and incorporate in looks.
  • The texture which is creamy and doesn’t feel powdery even if you pack it on.
  • The awesome pigmentation which is a breeze to work around.

What I don’t like about MAC Eyeshadow Nocturnelle:

  • Nothing at all but still I recommend you to try this in store with brush and not just a finger swatch.
