This is gorgeous for a colourful smokey eye. I put Nocturnelle on the entire lid and then blend into the crease with Star Violet. Since the glitter doesn't come through too much, I sometimes lightly dab Glitter in Reflects Red for more shine but either way it's a great colour, especially with a nude lip.

Matte dark plum-eggplant colour. Blends well, a good dark pigment. An alternate for black or dark brown. Compliments lots of contrasting colours. Great for cut crease and lining top and bottom lash-line. A go-to colour during the winter months.

Makes my hazel eyes turquoise in combination with indian ink. I use this as the base on my lids just to the crease and india ink thickly along 2/3rds of the lid (from outer in). I go over the thick indian ink line with a thin deep sable brown eyeliner (and tight line). Above the crease I use Chanel lily to the brow. Finally I apply black mascara and the result is striking turquoise irises. …Read more

I like wearing this wet as liner. It's a warm toned mix of plum and purple that glimmers in the light. My eyes are actually a tealish color and this shade really makes them stand out. It stays exactly where I put it and doesn't smudge. I love it!

The first mac eyeshadow I bought and the Worst mac eyeshadow I ever owned. The color in the packaging looks nice but it's so different when applied with a brush on the eyes. I had to scratch it so i could get some pigmentation out of it but I just did not like it. I know is a frost finish but i really don't know how to use it so it can look flattering.

Soft Ochre paint pot (base), then a sheer wash of Orb on the lid, golden e/s (i use Gilty Morsel with a light hand on the 2/3 of the lid) and finally Nocturnelle on the crease. Blend out any harsh edges with Orb and reapply a light wash of a metallic golden e/s (e.g. Nylon).
My eyes pop without looking bruised.

I hated this eyeshadow. I don't know why I bought it. I think the MAC SA used this as a liner or crease color on one of the looks she did on me. Now, purple is my favorite color, so I thought I'd love this. But no matter what I tried to do with it it was just too.. dark and not the shade of purple for me. Blending it was also a task, I'm guessing because it's a …Read more

I just love wearing purple eyeshadows - my favourites are MAC Trax and Satellite Dreams, Urban Decay Fishnet and NARS Habanera. I wanted a shade that would give my eye looks more depth in the outer corner, so I settled for Nocturnelle. It's a lovely purple-violet that's neutral in that it doesn't lean too warm nor cold, it just adapts to your eyeshadow. The pigmentation is decent …Read more

Trying to figure out how to make my green eyes pop when I just happened to be wearing a dark green wig, I picked up Nocturnelle and thickly lined my top lid with it. I then got compliments on how amazing my eyes looked all day. Not to say that you need a green wig to wear this colour, but it does do crazy things for green eyes.
