I have to admit, up until recently I wasn’t much of a fan of pigments. I guess I just never really found a use for them in my makeup routine. However after seeing a make-up tutorial online using pigments, I was tempted to try them out. I headed off to one of my favourites – MAC, and instantly fell in love with this beautiful pigment in melon.
Packaging: This beautiful pigment comes in a 4.5g pot that’s see-through and packaged in a small cardboard black box. This has a circle cut out so it’s useful to see what colour you have if you have more than one and store them in the box.
Colour: I fell in love a little bit when I was how beautiful this melon colour is. Just look at it…So intense, shimmery and multi-dimensional. A gorgeous warm toned coppery-golden shade.
Application: Pigments can be applied both dry or wet (I use a makeup setting spray on my brush). Personally, I prefer applying them wet as I feel they are being used to their full potential when the colour intensifies. They also stay on a lot better and longer. That being said, if you prefer a less dramatic look, then just apply it dry.
I love using this on my lid to finish off an evening eye look. The sparkle makes it more interesting and gives the eye look more depth and makes more of a statement. This also looks very pretty when placed in the inner corner of the eye or as a liner – both top or bottom.
Cost: Got this online from MAC for £17.00/€22.70. You might think it’s a lot for such a 4.5 container, however a little goes a long way with these pigments.
Verdict: I think it’s obvious I love this! The only thing I’m upset about is how long it took me to discover the beauty of these pigments! I love how they instantly transform any eye makeup look and make such a statement. The shades available are also extremely varied so you’re bound to find whatever you are looking for.
Love this and can’t wait to try out more!
