MAC Deceit is a moderately cool-toned, very dark plum with a frost finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
MAC Deceit Pigment ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a "blackened plum with pink pearl." When applied dry, it's a burgundy brown with a satiny sheen that's almost matte, but it's on the sheer side. When applied damp, it comes together more better for a really rich color of burgundy tinted by purple with a pearly sheen. It's opaque and smooth. It's less frosted but similar in color to Illamasqua Queen of the Night. I think it's also pretty close to MAC Deep Purple, which I don't own so I can't confirm 100%, which is permanent at PRO stores. Make Up For Ever #11 is redder. The dry swatch is a bit like MAC Shadowy Lady. The texture seemed very, very finely milled--it is probably one of the softest and most finely milled pigments I remember by MAC.
Highly concentrated loose colour powder to create a subtle wash of colour or intense effect. Does not streak or cake. Easy to blend, long-lasting. Limited-edition packaging features Betty. Note: Pigments are sold by weight not volume. Containers can appear to be less than full due to settling of the product.
