  • "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

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.

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.

These have been around for years. These are super pigmented. They’re a mineral loose pigment powder that when you dip your brush it gets fully coated. In this case less is more due to them being so pigmented you don’t need a whole bunch on your brush. They have a large selection range from colors and size. The price is just right and this would be another thing I would love to have all the colors. They’re blend-able and worth every penny. I’ve used this product with and without fix plus and it’s so crazy pretty that it looks great either way. It’s just all about your preference on how you would like to put that on.

I love love love love this pigment! I've held on to my first one for YEARS. It's a compact size but it lasts soooo long. I know there are expiration dates on makeup and some stuff you have to throw out regardless if it's fully used - but I refused to do so with this pigment. I got the copper to match my skin tone and it doesn't matter if it's on my skin or my eyes the color just pops.

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 GOLD more...
This is by far the best pigment ever! Anytime that I wanting to create a beautiful glam look that compliments my eyes this is my go to product. It is so beautiful on any skin tone and is super easy to apply. I use a small wet flat concealer brush to apply the product and it is even more beautiful on the lid then it is on the brush. I highly highly recommend this product and will purchase again as soon as I run out!

MAC pigments are the BEST! Use some glitter glue and dab on your pigment and you'll have the most popping colors you've ever seen! Surprisingly, they do not fall out all over your face. They stay put on the brush. They are spreadable and blendable easily and super easy to use. They are so reasonably priced and last forever! If you're still not comfortable with it, try a mini for a fraction of the price. Then enjoy all 52 shades to pick from. Silky smooth and high quality. Love, love, love!

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!

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?
