MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag

The MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag ($39.50) is a great value as it contains three full size MAC products as well as a brush and makeup bag to store it all in.

This dreamy set is a perfect gift or a great way to try out some fantastic MAC makeup picks.

Take a look!

The MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag is one of two eye bags MAC released with their Holiday 2013 Collection. This set is the violet set and features the following products:

MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag Set

MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag 4

MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag 5

MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag 6

MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag Swatches

These products are all permanent pieces of the MAC general catalog so you might already own them especially products like MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (I can’t think of a single person who doesn’t own this gel liner in this shade). This kinda makes the set a little bit of a rehash for true MAC junkies who purchase or own many of the products already!

However, it is a great way to introduce you products from MAC if you have very few or perhaps none at all.

The Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Frozen Violet is a beautiful shade and quite reminds me of a frosty, shimmering taupe. It creates a very sultry eye look and paired with Blacktrack Eyeliner and perhaps a bit of a bold lip look from your own collection you’ll have a very pretty evening Holiday look!

All the products are an excellent value as the paint pot and gel liner alone would set you back $36! This also includes a full size mascara as well as makeup bag and brush for application for a three/four dollars more.

Paint Pots are so a quick way to get down a perfect eye look as they have a creamy texture that blends out easily with a strong wear. Although I prefer Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner myself, MAC Fluidline is a sister brand to Bobbi so the formula is very similar. It’s a gel based liner with a no tug application, excellent application, and a strong hold on my drier eyes!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
