September 13, 2008
Top Row: MAC Apricot Pink Pigment, Aromaleigh Blush in Breathless
Middle Row:
MAC Pigments in Viz-a-Violet and Gilded Green
Bottom Row: MAC Overrich Pigments in Blonde’s Gold, Antique Gold, and Antique Green

If you own even one MAC pigment and haven’t checked out my illustrated pigmented-pressing tutorial, what are you waiting for? Click on over now! It’s fun and easy and a great way to waste a few hours of your life =D.

As you can see on the swatches of denim I used to press my pigments, the Gilded Green and the Aromaleigh blush bled quite a lot and released a lot of color, but no worries the pressed pigments are still gorgeous! Well I should qualify that to say that all of the MAC pigments are still gorgeous. My attempt to press the Aromaleigh mineral blush resulted in a rock hard hunk of pink that I had to toss, since no amount of scraping at the surface gave me any color!

Swatches (L to R): Antique Green, Blonde’s Gold, Antique Green, Apricot Pink

And for all the green lovers (*ahem* Anastasia) a comparison of some of the greenish Overrich pigments and Golden Olive pigments:

And since I’m on a green kick, I thought I’d take us back in time to look at some FOTD’s I’ve done using MAC Golden Olive pigment (click on the photos to be taken back to the original posts for details):
