Nocturnelle my MAC Cosmetics is a frost and is a bright grape and plum purple with a shimmer. It is highly pigmented, and quite honestly one of my favourite MAC shadows.
My favourite colour is purple, and I am trying to buy all the MAC purple shades, as I love creating purple looks that I can build with and create lots of dimensions. Upon unwrapping the shadow, I was shocked to see how vibrant it is, as it didn’t look so vibrant on the website, however I loved that as I don’t have a lot of bright colours and knew I could work with this.
When I swatched the colour without a primer, I was really pleased pigmented it is without any help. Some MAC colours really do benefit from a primer as not all are quite so good but Nocturnelle is really quality.
I would use this colour along the lash line of a dark smokey look for a pop of colour, or use it and blend it in the crease with a dark colour.
I really recommend this colour for anyone that loves vibrant colours, and loves purple. It amazingly pigmented and a really pretty colour. It is well worth £12.50 and I can’t wait to start using it!
