Mac Nylon Eyeshadow

I have a modest collection of Mac eyeshadows, but I’m trying to purchase the ones I will get the most wear out of to begin with. I have Woodwinked, Bisque, Naked Lunch and Satin Taupe. So my next purchase was Nylon is a lovely frosted champagne shade, i don’t really have anything else like this in my collection so it fits in well.

Like most people i use this as a highlighter shade in my tear duct area and also under my brows. It’s quite a creamy textured eyeshadow and applies easily and blends like a dream. The colour is pigmented and can be built up to a really lovely bold colour – if you want a more dramatic highlight for evening. It makes your eyes look bright and awake (we could all use a little bit of that, right?!). I’ve not worn it as an all ove the lid eyeshadow yet. But when i do i will add an edit to this post.

Using this as a highlighter should mean it lasts for quite a while as you really don’t use much product doing that. I’m impressed with the colour and the frost finish makes it perfect for highlighting and it doesn’t have large flecks of glitter shimmer, it’s subtle shimmer and the shadow is very fine. So its not too OTT. You don’t want to go out during the day looking like a disco ball.

I think this Nylon eyeshadow is another great addition to my collection. What Mac eyeshadow should i pick up next time. I have my eye on All That Glitters. But i need to add some great vibrant colours into my Mac collection too. Nylon cost £12 for 1.5g

  1. This is gorgeous! It reminds me of a more yellow version of NARS Albatross with the way it catches the light. I’m definitely going to be scoping this out next month when I’m able to shop at MAC again :)

    I’ve been after Nylon to add to my collection for a while. I’d heard it was great as a tear duct/brow bone highlight and now I’ve heard it again so I’ll definitely have to get my hands on it! I would definitely go for All That Glitters next, it’s one of my absolute faves. I also like Retrospek which is a lovely subtle gold/sand shade. xx

      I also used it all over my lid yesterday & its a lovely subtle colour that makes your eye look lovely and awake. Its a great versatile colour. I like the sound of Retrospek – i love a good gold shade. I will swatch that when im next in Mac. Thanks

    This is lovely! I want to try more MAC products as I only really have a foundation (which I hate) and an endless amount of lipsticks! xo
