Femme Fatale Holiday Makeup


Embodying a moody palette of dark tones and a hint of glitter, M.A.C’s Dark Desires collection is ideal for those who want to add a vampy touch to their holiday makeup without looking like they’ve rolled around in tinsel.

The range includes three black eye pencils, each infused with glitter in different colors; seven dark eyeshadows; two black mascaras; a liquid liner infused with gold glitter; two nail polishes (one in black and one in dark green); four lipsticks (all with a sheen finish); and three eye glosses.


Our pick of the collection include the new “Into the Well” eyeshadows, which are a first for M.A.C Cosmetics. Applied wet or dry, these ultra soft, pigmented powder products are dual-purpose; you can use them as an eyeshadow or eyeliner and each has a divot in the middle of the pan. The idea is to use a wet brush, swirl it around in the divot, and then apply the wet powder to the lids. We also recommend the Black Night lip shade, which is dark enough for the femme fatale inside us all—and with just the right amount of glitter.

The limited edition Dark Desires collection is available in stores and online.
