Stolen Moment is yet another stunning shade from the recently launched MAC Glamour Daze collection in India. It is described as Dark Taupe by MAC. It comes out as a beautiful Smoky Greyish Taupe on my NC42 skintone. It’s a must have shade for sure after Round Midnight from the range which looks fabulous against Indian skintones.
It is extremely smooth & soft texture wise with good colour pay off. It looks amazing when used with a wet brush on a dark base with softly blended edges. When used dry without a primer it stays put for 5-6 hours showing slight fading along the edges but improves remarkably when used wet holding well beyond 8 hours on me. If applied dry it needs slight layering to pack onto the lids completely. The natural smoky quality of the shade gives a nice sultry look to the eyes & looks equally stunning blended along the lower lash line. The shade has got a shimmery frost finish & not at all sparkly but does have those perfectly blended tiny sparkles in the texture. I didn’t experience any kind of fallout with the shade.
The packaging is ever so pretty with a sleek tiny glossy black case & a see through lid. The eyeshadow sits in the case with a nice intricate glistening pattern & embossed brand name. The only downside is the high price of these eyeshadows from the range for lesser quantity as compared to the regular range!
