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
