If you’re not a fan of all the glittery, golden shades that usually come with the holiday season, MAC’s new Dark Desires collection has you covered for looks that are, well, darker. With four lipsticks, six Into The Well eye shadows, three Eye Glosses, four Kohl eye pencils, a Fluidline and two lacquers; this is the perfect line for anyone who loves dark makeup.
We tried the lipstick in Ring My Bell (pale neutral, Glaze finish) that’s the perfect compliment to a dark eye. Into The Well is a really cool eye shadow/liner combination. It’s super creamy and pigmented and the well in the middle holds a drop of water so you can use it wet. Beg For it is a perfect black and I like it better as a liner. The Fluidline in Blitz & Glitz is a black with gold pearl and it goes really well with Beg For It.
The Studio Eye Gloss in Erogenous Zone (violet with glitter) was the only product I have an issue with. It’s extremely sticky, almost worse than lip gloss and it really wasn’t comfortable to wear. The shade is pretty but I’m not going to be reaching for this one again. On a happier note, my favourite product from the collection was the Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Orpheus (intense black with gold pearl). I’ve been using MAC’s Kohl pencils for years in Powersurge and Teddy and Orpheus is definitely my new favourite. I’m hoping it’s not limited edition, because I’m going to need to replace it when I’m done with the one I have now.
