MAC Evil Stepmother is a slightly cool-toned, very dark purple with a frost finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
MAC Evil Stepmother Pigment ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a "black plum with plum pearl." It's a blackened purple with cool undertones and a pink shimmer that gives it a more frosted finish. Applied dry, it is less shimmery and goes on unevenly with so-so color payoff. Applied damp, it is more even and more pigmented, but it is hard to blend. The texture was fine but dry, so it wasn't my favorite pigment to work with. It lasted for eight hours applied. L'Oreal Purple Priority (758) (P, $7.99) is more shimmery. MAC Past Midnight #2 (LE, $21.00) is brighter. Ardency Inn Purple Hearts (P, $32.00) is less shimmery. NARS High Society #3 (LE, $24.00) is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Starless Night (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
