Make the Night Divine with MAC!
Finally! I have swatches! For some reason Divine Night swatches were pretty scarce. But they’re here and I’m more than ready to share!
I’ll start with the lipsticks since they’re always the most popular pieces! There are five limited edition shades that should suit everyone’s needs. You’ve Got It looks light a pale white pink in the tube but it’s a very frosty gold when swatched. I’m sure someone out there might be able to pull this off alone but I think it’s more of a layering lippie. Flair for Finery is a cool pink nude with a lustre finish that’s really pale and white on me but I think it would look beautiful on lighter complexions. Exclusive Event is a cool taupe nude with a satin finish that looks a lot like Rihanna’s Nude lipstick but it’s a bit darker, cooler and more gray. If Nude was a little too brown or warm for you then you’ll love Exclusive Event! Private Party is hands down my favorite of the bunch. It’s the only one I purchased! You can check out my full review here. Prepare for Pleasure is really bright pink red with a cremesheen finish that pulls really red on me. The pink undertones will be much more apparent on lighter, cooler complexions.
The lipsticks have their own matching Cremesheen gloss with the exception of Exclusive Event. Which pairs pretty nicely with You’ve Got It. Flair for Finery and You’ve Got It are definitely more on the sheer side. Even the hint of shimmer is very faint. I think they’ll work very well for layering though! Private Party had pretty nice pigmentation and had a really pretty sparkle to it. Prepare for Pleasure was definitely the most impressive! Cremesheen glosses tend to be more on the sheer side but Prepare for Pleasure packs a punch! I wish I was more into red lips as it is truly beautiful.
There are three Mineralize Skinfinish powders in this collection. All of which are pretty warm and very finely milled. As others have noted, these are a bit powdery so expect a little mess. Perfectly Poised and Scene to be Scene have great pigmentation and give a beautiful glow. Scene to be Seen is a plum shade with brown undertones and some gorgeous shimmer. While it is beautiful it looks more like a blush to me. Centre of Attention has a more sheer base and the gold square has really big chunks of glitter. You can view my Perfectly Poised swatches and first impressions here.
There are three Mineralize blushes in this collection. Talk of the Town is an extremely frosty warm rose gold. I’m sure it would look beautiful with a very light hand. Lured to Love is warm peachy shade with a bit of a pink sheen. The sheen is absolutely gorgeous in person! Unfortunately, Lured to Love is much too pale for deeper complexions. Lavish Living is just beautiful! It’s a deep plum with silver flecks of glitter. I think it would make a lovely fall blush on light and dark skin tones! Like the Skinfinish powders, the blushes are also pretty powdery but they’re a little more sheer than the Skinfinish powders. I still didn’t have any issues building them up.
All of the eyeshadows were pretty pigmented and weren’t half as powdery as the other Mineralize pieces in this collection. Of course, they’re very glittery so they won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. If I had to pick a favorite it would be Tonight’s Temptation as it’s beautiful in the pan and the blue square is just GORGEOUS!
The Kohl Power pencils are nothing new. All four shades have been repromoted numerous times. No idea why MAC won’t make them permanent. They glide on very smoothly and have excellent pigmentation. They’re much softer than the Pro Longwear liners I’ve tried so I’m not sure if they’ll hold up as well but I am impressed by the way they swatch. I only hauled Mystery but I’m considering picking up Orpheus and Feline. They’re just so pretty!
The Fluidlines in this collection are just gorgeous! They all contain a bit of shimmer but the glitter is much less apparent in Macroviolet. I think these shades are a bit too light to really define my eyes but I would love to pair them with a winged liner! Either a glittery accent or pop of color on the bottom lid. Both would be beautiful! None of them felt gritty to me and I had no issues with pigmentation. I was pleasantly surprised by these beauties!
