EOTD: MAC Cham Pale's Dangerous Cuvée and MAC Stylishly Yours Dangerous Diversions

Two of MAC latest collections are Cham Pale and Stylishly Yours, released in North America on December 26, 2010. They're still in stores at the time of writing. I picked up a product from each - Dangerous Cuvée Paint Pot from Cham Pale and Dark Diversion Fluidline from Stylishly Yours.

I was excited to try the new Paint Pot formula (shimmer, shimmer, shimmer!) and since Dangerous Cuvée reads slightly lavender and Dark Diversion is a blackened plum, I put the two together in a simple but dramatic eye look.

Using an angle brush (MAC 263), I lined my eye, top and bottom with Dark Diversion and extended it to a short point at the outside corner. Cat eye! How timidly Cleopatra.

I applied Dangerous Cuvée to my eyelid, extending it up to and slightly past my crease. With any cream product, you need to work quickly as they tend to dry fast. Use your finger or a thin brush so you can add a small amount at a time and blend quickly. 

Look at the pretty, pretty sparkle! Sadly, my camera didn't fully capture the texture of this new formula but hopefully you can see how shimmery and lovely it is.

I felt I needed something more, so I used my MAC Greasepaint stick in Dirty and smudged some darkness into my crease, blending it with a full, short brush. I also used a bit of Dirty on my waterline to intensify the effect of the liner.

To finish the look, I brushed MAC Sketch eyeshadow into my eyebrows and used Maybelline Great Lash BIG in black on my lashes.

So there you have it! An eye look using two new (still in stores!) limited edition MAC products. Simple but dramatic and very pretty.

Let me know what you think!



  1. Ooh I like that darkened plum color! Might even work really well on my skin tone.

  2. It definitely would Roma. I meant to add that to the post, in fact. Plum and purple tones are great for brown eyes and it's brown so it'll be fantastic with your skin tone. Brown liquid liner is much softer than black liquid liner so it's less dramatic to wear during the day and will look good with brown shadows. Because it's got warmth to it, it's lovely on blue eyes and green ones too!

    Quite possibly, a perfect makeup product. :)
