MAC – Soirée Nail Lacquer from the Cham Pale collection: Swatches and Review

TGIF. Hi guys! Today I’d like to show you one of the nail polishes from one of MAC’s current collections. Soirée is one of the two nail polishes that came out with the Cham Pale collection at the end of last year in the US and this month in Europe. The second nail polish called Very Important Platinum didn’t catch my eye, though. The pewter base color looked pretty but the brush strokes I saw in swatches.. no thanks.

What MAC says about the Cham Pale collection:
The ultimate luxury when only the finest will do for the New Year: a cuvée collection that’s cause for celebration…a Champagne smash, colour and skincare shimmering with all the bubbly optimism & golden glow of the best that’s yet to be.

This matches what Soirée is to me: a luxury and festive looking, sparkly nail polish.

MAC – Soirée, two coats

The formula of Soirée is divine. It applies smoothly and is an almost one coater if you apply a thicker coat. Soirée is a sparkly bronze copper foiled nail polish – you also could call it a rose gold. I love that if you look close the silver foil glitter on the top which is less covered by the base color makes it look as if the foil glitter is two-colored. It gives the foiled look more depth.

Soirée is not unique, though. Orly’s Rage from the 2010 Foil FX Collection is supposed to be a great dupe. I have Rage but I must confess that it is still an untried. 😮
Guessing from a side by side bottle comparison Soirée is a tiny bit more yellow than Rage but if you already have Rage you should be set.

Have you purchased Soirée or are you planning to?

Thanks for looking! :)
Have a great weekend guys! ♥

  1. I got a MAC gift card for Christmas and I was on the fence about using a portion of it to get this color, but your swatches have convinced me! It’s so pretty! It really reminds me of a glass of champagne. Thanks for posting!
