Exploring the Full Potential of MAC Pigments

June 3, 2008

Although I had a lot of fun pressing my MAC pigments into eyeshadows, I know haven’t been taking full advantage of their versatility, and so in the next few weeks I’m determined to find as many different uses for them as I can.

Use #1: Gorgeous Pressed Eyeshadows and Blushes!!

Use #2: Luminizer/Hydrator


See the gorgeous swirls of pigment?

I transferred some of my MAC Fix+ into a small spray bottle, spooned in some Vanilla pigment, shook and voila, glow in a bottle! I’m loving this since the MAC Fix+ was just sitting on my vanity, wasting away from neglect. Now I have a refreshing midday spritzer that also gives my skin a subtle dewy glow. I’ve also mixed some pigment into my Shu Uemura Depsea spray (which is MUCH better than MAC Fix+)!

Use #3: Gloss Revamper


My Dior Ultra-Gloss Reflect in Cotton petal (247) hadn’t been getting much use because the color, while pretty, was just too sheer on me. I finally decided to take matters into my own hands today by adding some Pink Pearl pigment to it.

Before (pretty milky pink):


That’s all I had time for today-hopefully more to come at some point in the future! 🙂

Tell me about the different ways you use your pigments!
