Oh, this MAC pigment … Having bought it once, it is impossible to stop. After every purchase, I told myself that this was the last time, and after a few weeks I found myself in front of the MAC stand.
Why do MAC produce so many pigments? – I asked the consultant every time, causing a smile on his face.
And after the next purchase, I remembered the “wonderful” excuse for myself “I’m a make-up artist, I’m for work”, but deep down I understood that this was another whim – to buy another MAC Pigment Color Powder, but only this time in the shade Copper Sparkle.
Description of MAC pigment
The beauty of any pigment is its richness. No matter how much you apply pressed shadows, you will never achieve such an effect. Only the pigment is able to color the eyelid in one touch with a finger or an applicator. A brush is not a great idea. The pigment will crumble under the eyes and hello, make-up remover.
Alas, the photo does not convey the full depth of the shade, which bloggers and makeup artists face more than once trying to convey the play of light and shadow.
Everyone knows about MAC Cosmetics pigments, but few people remember that 5 years ago the jars with loose eyeshadows were twice as large, and the prices were three times less. In those years, I was their mystery shopper and watched how the MAC pricing policy changed every year.
How to use pigments
How justified is buying MAC pigments today? As much as you know how to use loose shadows.
How to apply the pigment, what to mix it with and where exactly to apply it? – questions that every non-makeup artist who buys a pigment should ask himself.
Because pigments are tricky. You need to know how to work with them. That is why I wrote an article for beginners “How to apply pigments“. After reading it, you have every chance of getting hooked on MAC pigments.
In terms of the durability and color of pigments, the questions are incorrect, since it depends both on the method of application and on the products with which you combine.
Therefore, here we look only at the color, and the quality of all pigments is approximately the same. Some are more crumbly, others less. That’s all the difference.
Oh yes, color. Not every brand has the exact shade you need. Perhaps he determines the choice of the brand.
At this point I end and give the floor to you: do you come into contact with pigments? If so, which ones?
