MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag: Nude

I purchased a Stroke of Midnight set from MAC not too long ago and I can't believe I have waited so long to talk about it. Unfortunately it is limited edition so I'm not entirely sure if they are still stocking this set. MAC had a whole range of different sets to choose from and I decided on getting the Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag in the colour Nude.

The bag is black with a white geometric pattern finished off with gold piping and I absolutely LOVE it because it looks so sleek and classy. It's the perfect size for my bag and I could even use it as a purse for when I go out [HAAAAAAH}.

In the bag I got a Pro Longwear Paint pot in "Utterly Becoming" which is creamy pinky-beige and I have been using this every time I do my makeup because its such a natural colour that I use it under shadows as a primer to make the colours stand out more or I use it on the lid on its own. I like to think of it as a matte version of "Naked Lunch" WHICH IS MY FAVOURITE!!

I also got a Fluidline in "Past Twilight" and MAC describes it as a blacked plum and in the pot it looks brown toned with a hint of purple. I always use black eyeliner and I recently dipped my toe into using other colours {ahem, okay it was just brown but still..}. I think this Fluidline offers a more softer look than a harsh black gel liner.

To apply both of these products, there is a Double-Ended 209 Eyeliner/ 239SE Eye Shader Brush which is handy. I haven't used it too much because I found that it was easier to apply the Paint Pot on my lids with my fingers. The 209 Eyeliner part of the brush is a thin tip rather than some eyeliner brushes I have at home which have a rounder shape.

There is also the Extreme Dimension Mascara which I have not opened yet because I have WAY too many mascaras that are open at the moment - I would rather use all of them up before opening a new one. From reviews I read, the brush is very prickly and is supposed to create both volume and length.

Did any of you manage to pick up any of the MAC Stroke of Midnight Sets?
