Above: Young Punk Mineralize Eyeshadow. This is black eyeshadow with a pinky purple coloured glitter in it. When swatched it looks black with pink and purple iridescence. Like most of the mineralize eyeshadows there are fallout from the glitter and swatches very sheer when applied dry. This is the only colour I find the most unique of the three.

I find that this shadow didn’t work for me if I wear it dry because it is just too sheer and chalky. While swatched wet and without a base it goes on pigmented and opaque but I find the application clumpy. I like the application the best with a base underneath, especially with a clear base because it shows the pink/purple the best. It looks great with a black base but I find it a bit too blacken and didn’t show off the pink and purple glitter as much.
The Grease Paintstick in Black was the one item I was the most excited about out of all the items in the Style Black collection because I don’t remember MAC ever releasing a product like this. This swatches on as a strong solid black with purplish blue undertones. I was a bit afraid that this would be really really greasy and it would smudge and move a lot . I thought this would be like grease paint sticks for painting and would be actually greasy and sticky. This applies very smoothly and pigmented. It does smudges but you will need to work really fast or add more product as you smudge because it sets and dries quickly. As a result you will not have to worry about your makeup smudging off, it does however, flake off it you continuously rub on it. This would look great on it’s own or as a base for eyeshadows. I would recommend an oil based makeup remover for this.
