MAC Push the Edge Pigment
MAC Push the Edge Pigment ($21.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “deep bright purple with pearl.” It’s a rich violet purple with strong fuchsia-red undertones and a frosted finish. NARS Trash is a bit darker and less shimmery, plus it is a cream product. Make Up For Ever #26 is also a cream product, but it is more similar in color.
There’s a slight chalkiness to the base of this color; it’s almost as if there’s a matte or semi-matte purple base along with lots of shimmer/frost, but they don’t quite blend and meld together perfectly. When applied dry, it tends to look and feel powdery, and it yields a sheer, washed out payoff. When applied damp (I used water), the intensity of the color increases, and it looks much smoother and more opaque–the shimmer content also becomes more pronounced. MAC actually markets pigments as a product that will adhere to skin that can be used sheerly or intensely, and that it is long-lasting. I applied it with water to dampen the color and smooth it out, and it lasted for eight hours without creasing or fading.
Like much of this collection, Push the Edge is a repromote, so you may already have it in your stash.
