MAC Nocturnals Collection

For all those devoted to life from dusk to dawn. After-dark glamour comes in mini kits for seductive spirits seeking nocturnal pleasures. Lavish sets evoke the intoxicating essence of evenings out, in glossy black boxes embellished in white and gold. M·A·C Nocturnals Pigments and Glitter features five convenient jars, giving you smoky eyes in three scintillating shade waves. Nocturnals Lip Gloss provides high-impact colour in three sumptuous shades of coral, pink and nude. With just a whisper of polish for your pout, Nocturnals Tastitints condition in barely-there shades and four different flavours: peppermint, vanilla, lavender and guava.

Thanks for clarifying that Christine.. I just about fell over my chair when I initially thought pricing was for individual lip products 🙂

Oh my god, Christine! My wallet is so pissed at you right now, lol. So far I’m really loving the MAC holiday collections! Can’t wait till your reviews 🙂

I’d love a small Museum Bronze but don’t want or need the other pigments in that set (or any of them, really). I so wish MAC sold individual small-sized pigments.

I don’t get MAC’s need to come out with three new collections every week. Especially in the past couple of years, I feel their quality suffered a lot and I’m wondering if it’s because they’re focusing more on quantity. :/

Maybe MAC are dishing out a multitude of different products in a bid to find one good quality product?…could be why people think they’re focusing on quantity rather than quality?..just a thought – I get them from time to time lol

Are the jars the glass jars like they used to have in holiday sets? They look like it and I hope so! I do not like the stack-able plastic they have been using. Anyone know?

Omg the pigment sets are back!!!! I’m so excited! The last set of these I bought was from the Antiquitease(not sure i spelled that right) Collection! I hated the crushed metal stackers.

Can someone please tell me what do you do with these glitter/pigment sets? There so gorgeous! I ordered it today but dont know what there used for. Go figure I’m A huge Mac lover!!!! But never used these. Thanks

oh my gooooooodness, I got the chance to mess with the pigments at the MAC counter today…. I will just say that the pigments are super gorgeous, all 3 sets. they seem to be the same size as regular pigments. Can’t wait!!

Christine, Do you know if this collection will be available at macy’s? If so, when? I am dying to get my hands on those pigment sets. Also, two of the sets seem like they have a very similar colors in them.. How similar are the vanilla and reflects gold colors in person? Thanks!

It should be!

Well, Reflects Gold is a glitter and Vanilla is a pigment, so the texture is completely different – Reflects Gold is, essentially, loose gold glitter.

Anyone know how big the pigments are ? I know they must be smaller considering one full size pigment costs $21 and this set of 5 pigments costs $32.50. I want to purchase them but I am hesitant that I will receive itty bitty sample size pigments >_<.
