Christmas came early in November when MAC dropped its new Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolours ($21). They arrived with 14 holographic shades, including everything from pearly opal-silver to vibrant violent. While the photos of the products online were enough to get us hyped, we nearly dropped everything to run to MAC and buy even more lippies when we saw beauty blogger Nyma Tang's swatches.

You might remember Nyma from "The Darkest Shade," a YouTube series where she tries on different brands' deepest hues and sheds light on the beauty world's lack of inclusivity. As you can see from the video below, the Grand Illusion glosses definitely pass the pigment test. They appear opaque and metallic on her skin tone, with an intense color payoff that really shows off the color-shifting properties of the tubes.

We'll take one in every color, please!
