No question that many MAC pigments are messy. When they're highly pigmented and prone to fallout, they seem even messier, as the fallout can make a real mess when you try to brush it away. But Moonlight Night is such a beautiful colour - a deep blackened green/teal that looks fine applied dry but turns crazy amazing applied wet. Not really a daytime eye colour (though I have used it dry, in small amounts and very lightly, in the daytime) but so, so beautiful for when you just have to please yourself. It is so gorgeous that it's actually one of the pigments that is worth the mess and extra effort.
