I luv this as highlighter under brow bone and inner eye corners. Pair it with club , wedge or expresso and it's beautiful, this is a staple for any makeup collection.
This is another staple - definitely not something I would every day or even over my lid for that matter (too shimmery) but as a highlighter on the brow bone this is really love and as it would have to be used sparingly it lasts forever. If I have run out of anything to highlight my cheekbones I have been known to lightly blend some of this along my upper cheek and it does the trick!
I agree with all the reviews, a very nice versatile color. I give it a 5 because it deserves it, although I like rice-paper much more, it is easy to overdue with nylon on my bid eyes and look a little too shimmery (which I try to avoid because of my oily skin)
I have had nylon for a while, and I really enjoy this color! It's a pretty shimmery gold-ish highlight color. I mainly use it for a quick, easy brow highlight, but it also works beautifully for a little pop of light on the center of the lid, and as an inner corner highlight. A little light and bright for the summer when I have more of a tan, but I reaaally love this in the winter to just make me feel a little brighter during those cold, dreary months. I've had it for a good while, but have barely made a dent in it, as it doesn't take much to give such a lovely effect! Would repurchase.
i asked a mac SA to pick me a highlight colour, im indian and mac C40 and she was indian too thought she would pick a good one, i asked for no frost but this is a frost! i bought it anyway as she said she could not live without it. its very pigmented and very bright and quite shimmery to wear daytime you have to apply with a fluffy brush to keep it appropriate for work for those of us who dont work at makeup counters its nice but i could live without it i have since swatched floof and ricepaper and would have preferred them but dont want to spend too much on colours that are too similar at the moment i want to buy unique colours then start adding to my collection with shade differences or at least wait till next payday!
What can I say? It lives up to the hype as a brown contour color :)
Overall a fantastic shimmery very pigmented pale yellow! Perfect for under the brow bone or inner tear duct. I have even used it as an all over lid colour with browns (usually Mystery, Espresso, and/or Wedge) in the crease for a quick daytime look. I find the yellow makes me look more alert/awake and compliments my green eyes nicely. This is a staple in my collection and have repurchased it many times.
Absolutely love this color! I was looking for a nice white-gold color that would complement my NC25 skin, and this is it! Looks really great as a lid color and can be paired with many different colors. Will definitely rebuy!
LOVE. IN. A. PAN.
seriously! I bought crystal avalanche and was convinced that it was the best inner tear duct colour every because it was sooo shimmery and bright. Then i went to the mac store and swatched nylon and was like "WHAT THE HECK?!" the MA thought i was repulsed and started to try to calm me down like "oh it's actually really pretty on the eye" but then i was liek "why do i not have this colour already it's amazing!" and she started to laugh. hahahaha yeah i'm a little dramatic.. But this colour is so worth it! i use it almost everyday now.. i feel bad cause now i'm totally ignoring my crystal avalanche but i'll still use it on days that i do black/grey smokey eyes since nylon does have a more yellow tone to it. but still a billion times brighter! My local mac store was sold out of it so i had to drive all the way downtown to get it and i had a huge smile on my face when i got it. I'm sure the MAC guy thought i was crazy.
BEST. EYESHADOW. EVER!! Buy this ASAP if you haven't already!
