MAC Cocktail Black is a moderately cool-toned, dark taupe with a satin finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Cocktail Black is a subdued, blackened brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It appeared a little lighter and warmer in the pan than it did swatched on my skin or applied to my lid. The consistency was a bit firmer and could have been easier to blend out, but it didn't take too much effort to soften the edges. It wore well for eight hours on me.

These saturated shadows in neutral and metallic shades and multiple finishes stay on all day long with non-creasing, eight-hour wear. The result: potent colour payoff that applies evenly, blends well and can be used wet or dry.
