I love love this pigment. I bought it in 2009 as part of a summer collection. I love the smokey eye look and recently come across a you tube video by TheMusicMakeup. This lady puts the dark soul pigment in a whole new light! She uses a MUFE dark blue cream base and uses the dark soul pigment on top which gives the most gorgeous glittery blue/black smokey eye! She uses browns from the Lorac pro palette for the crease but there are plenty of Mac dupes for these other colours. I'm hooked! A very sexy smokey evening look although I do wear this is in the day. Check out her video!

Pretty black that can also be blended out to grey. Very versatile especially for smokey eye looks. Somewhat hard to use since it is so pigmented and can get everywhere and make a mess if you're not careful. But it's very pretty and sparkley. A little bit goes a LONG way, and by little bit I mean next to nothing on your brush.

works great over a base such as TFSI or UDPP. gorgeous sparkles in it that show up really well. easy to apply wet or dry, using a mac 239 brush. easy to remove using any of the mas removers or mac wipes. i use it as a liner mostly, but its great too for ahadow or crease or outer v area.

this is such a gorgeous color. i don't wear very many bright colors but opt to go for more blacks/greys so i decided to test out this pigment. i took a little bit on my finger to swatch it over my hand and just. wow. in the bottle it looks like a plain grey-ish black but it's so much more than that. it's a nice black with sparkle and it's just gorgeous. i've yet to actually use it but i plan on it soon. it definitely fits in nicely with my collection of blacks/greys.

I can see now why some people don't care for this color. If you don't apply it right, it does NOT stay on!! Within no time, all you see is a light cast of black/grey. The color itself is GORGEOUS. Definitely, definitely use a sticky base of some sort for the best results. What I use it for is darkening the outer V and it works pretty well for that. Also BEWARE of fallout. Especially since the color is so dark.

I love this pigment. As a professional MUA, I can't understand how some people can write a bad review on this, and say it's "too pigmented". They shouldn't be reviewing the item if they don't know how to use it properly...Doing your eye makeup first, will be time saving, which is something I always tell clients. Here are some tips for those who have a hard time with Dark Soul pigment, or pigments in general...One - It's a PIGMENT! Therefore, it's going to be a highly concentrated color. Two - Being multi-use, (wet or dry), makes it awesome to get different looks from one product. Yes, it's expensive, but it will definitely last a very long time! Three - Using it with a damp brush gives a great metallic look with the glitter flecks blending in to create a more foiled look. Using it dry, and with an eye shadow primer under it, gives more of a glittery look. Four - You should pick up a very small amount on your brush, tap off the access, pack it on the eyelid by using a patting technique instead of swiping back and fourth, it will have much less fall-out. Lastly - Build the color until you achieve the look you're satisfied with.

My friend and I split this pigment because I knew I would never be able to use it up. This is the black pigment with sparkles. It is a difficult pigment to work with because it is really pigmented, dark, and tends to have fall out. I like to start with the least amount first and then build it up in order to avoid any messy clean ups. I also like to use this pigment wet for a dramatic effect. You must use a lighter hand with this pigment.

I hate to say it but I really don't like MAC and this product is one of the reasons why. Yes, it is very pigmented. Too pigmented, to the point where it's almost unusable. Once you put it on, there's no changing it unless you want gliterry black smudges all over your face, so if you make a mistake- too bad! Water wont help, and neither will the best of makeup removers. When you put it on, a lot of it falls onto your cheeks too so you will inevitably have some gray smudges. It also migrates during the day. Straight into the creases of your lids, outer corners, and cheeks. As I mentioned, it's impossible to remove. I used to scrub and lose lashes and it still left a sicky gray cast. The packaging was horrible too. Not only did it spill everywhere when I opened it, after a week it all spilled in my makeup bag. That was the end of it. I'm glad it wasn't terribly expensive because 1. I hated it and 2. It all went to waste thanks to the crappy packaging. Along with this and bare minerals, I've had enough of loose powder anything. Would not recommend to anyone.

This product is amazing. it blends nicely, thought I find on me it likes to fade or crease because i have very oily skin...
but i like this colour over all, i just need to figure a way so that it can be long lasting.

VERY dark pigment, great if that's what you're looking for. To me, it seems like a very basic black, albeit very pigmented, so I'm not sure I'd repurchase.
