MAC Nylon Eyeshadow Review, Swatch

MAC Nylon Eyeshadow

mac nylon eyeshadowPrice : Rs 680 in refill / Rs 900 in pan.

MAC describes this Nylon as Pale gold with icy shimmer (forst).

Nylon is a frost eyeshadow. It is a pale yellow eyeshadow with soft golden shimmer , which gives it a nice frosty look.

It can be used as a cheek highlighter, eye lid color , a color for highlighting the inner corners of eyes, and for highlighting brow bone. I have used it all the ways and I personally like it best as a highlighter for inner corner. It just opens up the eyes. I used this product HERE for my inner corners.

This product works for most skin tones but is best for those with fair to medium skin tones. On the contrary, Natasha (an IMBBย contributor), who had a dusky skin tone used Nylon in her Look Books. See HERE and HERE

So honestly, it is more of a personal choice. I love Rice Paper more than this one. Mainly because it blends more with my skin tones.

The staying power is pretty good. It stays all day long on me and I tried using it as a lid color so although I did not enjoy the look, it did it not crease on me. It is quite pigmented and blends easily.

So if you have to pick one highlighter, you can pick one from Ricepaper (Review HERE ) or Nylon depending on your preference and skin tone.
