Company’s Description

Our new, long-wearing shimmering pearl powder eye shadow has a unique silky texture, feels creamy to the touch, yet is incredibly lightweight, easily blendable and buildable. Formulated with ultra-fine light-reflecting shimmer pearls for maximum colour impact, this powder leaves lids visibly smooth with a beautiful pearl finish. Special packaging features the playful fuchsia and burgundy shades of our holiday collection.

MAC’s Nutcracker Sweet Collection includes the launch of 5 new Magic Dust Eye Shadows. All of the shades are swatched, reviewed, and depicted, below:

  • Dance Flowers Dance: Light pink
  • Pretty Dainty: Pink coral shimmer
  • Rabblerouser: Bright intense pink
  • Forward March: Peachy gold shimmer
  • Dark Lullaby: Midnight purple
  • Mustache: Black with gold sparkle


MAC’s new Magic Dust Eye Shadows have a creamy formula that is pigmented and glides onto the skin. Dark Lullaby was slightly more dry than the rest of the shades in this collection, but I was otherwise impressed by the consistency of quality for all of the shades, which applied evenly and blended nicely. I was particularly impressed with Pretty Dainty and Rabblerouser. Pink eye shadow shades are harder to formulate, but these two shades stand next to the rest. My personal favorite is Forward March, which has a duo-chrome flash to it that the swatch below doesn’t do justice.
