My thoughts
MAC describe Young Punk as a mineralize black with pinkish purple pearl. In the pan the shadow looks beautiful. When on the shadow mainly transfers as black with the addition of slightly chunky pink and purple glitter. Although a little on the chunky side, the glitter isn’t gritty but is however prone to fall out when used dry. When used wet, I found zero fall out which was pretty good. As for the pigmentation, when dry it’s a bit “meh” but when used wet, it’s super pigmented and 10x prettier. As for the wear time, it wore for around 5 hours when wet before fading occurred a few hours later I noticed creasing began. When used dry it lasted around 3 hours before fading began and creasing soon after. The shadow feels very lightweight when on and I found it to blend well.

Overall
I think when used dry this shadow is a little bit of a let down and I much prefer it when used wet. Having said that, overall it wasn’t that impressive and I think at £17.00 it’s overpriced and I therefore won’t be purchasing any other Mineralize Eye Shadows from MAC in the future but Young Punk is a gorgeous shade and I will continue to use it from time to time.
