Hi Ladies. Today I am reviewing one of my current favourite eye shadows. As a total eye shadow junkie, I am always extremely excited to try out new colours and formulations. MAC pigments (or pigments in general) are something that I have never really tried in depth. In my early makeup years I remember using the Barry M pigments, but if truth be told, I didn't have much idea what I was doing back then. As an extremely clumsy person, pigments seemed a bad idea, but after seeing Gabriella from velvetgh0st talk about this product, and describe it as rose gold, I was pretty much sold. I had it on my wishlist for a long time, but I just never got round to buying it. Then Christmas came, and my lovely Godparent's bought it for me. It is not a product that I wear on an every day basis, but if I am going somewhere special or out at night, it is my go to eye colour.
The wonderful thing about this product is that it looks gorgeous on its own. When I wear it, I apply my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold (do you see a theme?) so the pigment has something to stick to and boosts the longevity of it. The pigment itself is incredibly fine and seems to contain small glitter particles when first applied, but when it is blended, it just looks shimmery. I usually add a bit of black eyeliner when I wear it too.
On the MAC website, Tan is described as a 'muted pinky brown bronze' and I have to say I absolutely agree. I find this looks really flattering with my eye colour and skin tone. Bronze hues pretty much suit anyone. Some bronze shades have really strong orange undertones and can not really work with paler complexions, but this is an exception. I'm quite pale and it looks really lovely. I can see this looking especially gorgeous on darker skin.
If you have never tried MAC Pigments before, I highly recommend Tan as a starting point as it is so versatile. I would really like to try some more and have my eye on Vanilla as I have heard amazing things about it. They are quite pricy at £17, but you get 4.5g, and you only need the tiniest amount on your brush to cover your whole lid.
You can find pigments on the MAC website here, or I like to buy MAC from the Debenhams website as then I can earn point on my beauty club card!
Have you tried MAC Pigments? What are your thoughts?
