Baked minerals refined into a powder formula provide exceptionally sheer and lightweight application. Colour builds lightly, layer after layer, without heavy coverage. Pairs two rich, contrasting shades with the graphic impact of a luxe powder design. Limited-edition Divine Night packaging.
This review is for the 6 new, limited-edition Mineralize Eyeshadows releasing with MAC’s Divine Night Collection. The following shades are reviewed and depicted:
- Captivating: Bright white gold base / deep gold (Frost)
- Exquisite Ego: Bronze base / soft white champagne (Frost)
- Past Midnight: Blackish purple with violet pearl base / soft white pink frost (Frost)
- Until Dawn: Soft gold base / purple taupe (Frost)
- Tonight’s Temptation: Black with pearl base / royal blue (Frost)
These shadows come in standard MAC packaging but are larger than normal eye shadows. The compacts are plastic and come with snap-shut, flip-up tops. The pans are dome-shaped. These are $2.00 more than MAC’s regular Mineralize Eyeshadows, but the only difference is that the MAC logo on the packaging for the Divine Night shadows is gold instead of black.
Each pan contains 2 shades: one shade occupies a large portion of the pan, and the other shade occupies a smaller, bucket-shaped area on the pan.
Captivating contains two shades of gold–one that’s more white and a darker one.
Exquisite Ego contains a soft bronze and a shimmering cream.
Past Midnight contains a medium plum and a very pale lilac. The plum shade isn’t opaque and is a little dull.
Until Dawn contains a soft, very pale gold and a taupe-brown.
Tonight’s Temptation contains a black with silver glitter and a blue. Both shades aren’t opaque.
All of these shadows have a Frost formula, so they all have a shimmery finish. The formula for these Mineralize Eye Shadows is dusty and pretty messy–the shimmer likes to travel outside of the pan.
You definitely want to use an eye shadow primer and/or base because the mineralize formula tends to crumble and crease more than other pressed shadows. You can also apply these with a damp brush, but (compared to other Mineralize Eyeshadows from previous collections) these perform pretty well without having to do so.
