MAC - Style Black


From “Back to Black” beehive and eyeliner to Steven “80s” Sprouse-in-the-House kohl and fringe to Gareth Pugh London New Goth, Black is simply beyond. Lips, nails, eyes there’s no more dramatic way to declare your desire, separate your sensibility, celebrate your magnetism. They WILL surrender to a Blackfire Glimmerglass, Rapidblack Penultimate Eyeliner, a slash of Greasepaint Stick, and the hot scratch of Baby Goth Girl Nail Lacquer. Style Black is a way of life, a shadowy and mysterious figure of fantasy, even for just one dark and dangerous night.

Lipstick ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN)
-Black Knight- Creamy true black (Cremesheen)

I tried this, but I just can't pull off black lipstick.

Mattene ($14.50 U.S. / $17.50 CDN)
-Midnight Media- Dense matte black
-Night Violet- Deep purple grape

Glimmerglass ($18.00 U.S. / $21.50 CDN)
-Bling Black- Sheer black with gold pearl
-Blackfire- Sheer black with pink purple pearl
-Blackware- Creamy true black

These are great to use on top of the eyeshadow.

Nail Lacquer
($12 U.S./$14 CDN)
-Seriously Hip- Black with gold particle pearl (frost)
-Baby Goth Girl- Black with pink and purple pearl (frost)
-Nocturnelle- True black (cream)

I love all 3 of these shades, but Seriously Hip and Baby Goth Girl are AWESOME. 2 of my favorite things from this collection. Seriously Hip's gold pearl provides a kind of rich greenish shade that shimmers and sparkles. Baby Goth Girl is like a black speckled with dark purple. Go get them. Now.

Mineralize Eye Shadows ($19.00 U.S. / $23.50 CDN)
-Cinderfella- Black with silver pearl
-Gilt by Association- Black with gold bronze pearl
-Blue Flame- Black with blue pearl
-Young Punk- Black with pink purple pearl

My favorites are Gilt by Association and Young Punk. While they're dark and smoky, the color provides a pretty sheen. Highly recommended.

Volcanic Ash Exfoliator
($19.50 U.S. / 23.50 CDN)- For all skin types. Volcanic ash (in the form of mineral-rich clay), sugar crystals and natural enzymes combine to exfoliate and remove excess oils from the skin.

I had the older version of this and this is one makes so much more sense! Love the squeeze tube.


#214 Short Shader Brush
($23.00 U.S. / $27.50 CDN)
Short, rounded, double-chiselled brush with soft, natural bristles. Can be used with shadow to line and smudge around the lash line and very effective for densely shading lids.


Eye Kohl ($14.50 U.S. / $17.50 CDN)

-Smolder-
Intense Black

Penultimate Liner ($16.50 U.S./ $20 CDN)
-Rapidblack- True black

Grease Paintstick ($17.50 U.S./$21 CDN)
-Black- Intense black

Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask ($19.50 U.S./$23.50 CDN)- A highly effective, dual-purpose foaming, cleansing and exfoliating scrub blending natural volcanic ash with fine sugar crystals. Refines and unclogs the skin, adds instant moisture, leaves skin feeling soft and comfortably clean. Mineral-rich. May be used effectively on any part of face or body. Rinses off with warm water.
