PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "The vibrancy of these pigments is truly amazing. My favorite way to use them, it to put a base on my lit, spray my brush with Fix+ then pack the pigment on. With a wet brush, the pigment is so sparkly and beautiful. " in 15 reviews
  • "These are pigmented, as one would expect, with a range of buildable color. They are seriously long lasting and slightly messy. " in 13 reviews
  • "I saw this pigment in a blue brown duo chrome and I had to have it. It hasn't failed me once. If I put it on Saturday afternoon and go out, It'll last until the uber ride home Sunday morning. It's shimmery and wonderful but a bit expensive. I would look for dupes online before making the commitment. " in 12 reviews

Review for: COPPER SPARKLE, HERITAGE ROUGE, PROCESS MAGENTA more...
MAC Cosmetics’ Pigments are second to none. They’re available in four different finishes: Matte, Frost, Pearl and Metal. I own the shades Copper Sparkle (super frosty copper flecks), Process Magenta (bright magenta), Rose (rose with copper sparkle - Frost) and Heritage Rouge (dirty brown plum frost.)

These highly concentrated loose color powders are incredibly versatile. They can be applied dry for a subtle look or wet for an intensified effect. You can wear the pigments on your eyes, face, lips or anywhere else on your body. They blend out nicely. As per MAC, their pigments are non-caking, non-streaking and long-wearing.

The price tag of $22 isn’t bad considering that a full-sized pigment will last you practically forever. I’ve never even run out of one of the minis!

The holiday season is a great time to buy these pigments because they usually sell mini size sets including limited edition shades. Currently, there are 44 permanent shades to choose from so there’s really something for everyone in this product line.

Review for: Pigment more...
Like most other Mac Cosmetic products this is absolutely amazing. What I mainly use my cosmetic pigments for is for highlighter. It's really in Trend right now and I absolutely love it so what I do is I take a pigment that is a nice shade for a highlighter which is whatever you like because highlighters can be almost any color and apply it to the most basic places that you would put highlighter. You can also use this as nice shadow and what I like to do which I just discovered is take about a tablespoon and put it in a bottle of MAC Prep & Prime fix shake it up and then you can spray it on your face whether or not you're going to be applying a full face of makeup and it gives you a really nice dewy glowy finish that I absolutely love. They have so many shades that it really covers anything that you want it has a good pearlized Shimmer high-quality and one bottle will last you for years even if you use it everyday.

Review for: OLD GOLD, ROSE GOLD, ROSE, BLONDE'S GOLD, TAN, COPPER SPARKLE, BLUE BROWN, MELON, KITSCHMAS, NAKED more...
They’re expensive, but i love them. The best value would probably be the mini pigments. Unless you’re a working makeup artist, it’ll take forever to go through a full sized jar. They’re extremely pigmented, can be used wet or dry, with a regular eyeshadow primer or glitter glue. Most can be used all over the body, so you can add to lotion, lip gloss, nail polish. I have a full collection and will continue buying. My personal favorites are blue brown and copper sparkle. I love Dark Soul as a smoky liner.

Review for: BLUE BROWN more...
This is one of my favorite blue brown pigments.  I have maybe 18 different kinds from many different brands,  but good ol' Mac surpasses many of them.  This is better applied either over sticky primer with finger,  or over regular primer but with wet brush.  You'll achieve the same opaque glossy effect with both techniques.  Also this is spectacular over dark eyeshadow base,  it brings out more of the blue.  I would buy this pigment again.

Review for: ROSE more...
This is a really beautiful pigment but it’s a bit difficult to use in my opinion . The pigment itself has a different look to it than some of the other pigments I have, it’s almost like rose gold flecks so there are only two ways of using it and that’s applying it over a sticky base like a glitter glue which is my preferred method as it looks the best in my personal opinion or applying it with a wet brush or some other means of foiling material. If you opt for this method you will end up with an intense rose gold metallic foiled look but that foil will crease so it doesn’t look amazing . This pigment also doesn’t lend itself to being turned into a liner very well either which is a bummer . All things considered if you love rose gold this color is stunning and it creates some gorgeous looks

Review for: MELON more...
This is my favorite loose pigment of all time! This color specifically is so so so beautiful. The price is kind of high but this will last you the rest of your life. You barely need any to get a super stunning and reflective eye look. I wish I could afford to buy them all!

Review for: ROSE more...
My favorite pigments. I have a few pigments from MAC and I’ve had them for years. I haven’t even gone through half of them. There was a time when I wore Melon almost every single day and that lasted for about a year, still to this day I have a little bit more than half of the pigment today. I find that I have to use a glitter glue to keep them on my eyes though, but that it’s a the only drawback.

I love these pigments by Mac! I just dump a little pigment out in the top of the lid spray some fix plus into pigment, whirl it around with my Mac 242 flat brush and pat it onto my eyes to make a foiled look, or you can wet your brush with eye drops and dip barely into pigment and pat on as well, blend any harsh lines out with a good crease color..I also use gasoline and sometimes but it over the pigments on my entire eye lid to make it look glossy and sexy. My fav pigments are Blue Brown, Melon, Heritage Rouge, and Tan! They will also last FOREVER!!! You only need a tiny bit!!

Review for: ROSE more...
Macs pigments are hard to beat. They have an amazing color selection and are very easy to work with. My only complaint is the packaging. I wish it had a sifter. Also, they're huge, which is nice because you get a lot of product but I'd be shocked if someone ever used a full Mac pigment. Mine looks untouched and I've had it for years!

Do these pigments require a base to get the maximum pigmentation? Is fall out common with this product? I'm looking for a good, beautiful pigment that lasts a while and doesn't have much fall out. Are these worth the money?
