Mac Pressed Pigments

MAC has a new makeup collection out for Spring 2013 and as part of the collection, they have brought out some pressed pigments which have all the intensity of a pigment with glitter, but are compressed into a powder compact which makes them easier to apply yay!

They come in 12 different shades as above from light colours to dark intense colours and can be used on their own or over similar coloured eyeshadows for a pop of glitter (you must know by now, how much I love a bit of glitz!).  Pop these on the centre of your eyeshadow to give a pop of shimmer or apply wet to really intensify the colour.  They say that these can be applied as a highlighter to the cheekbone also but the glitter is so chunky that I really can’t see this being practical unless you want to look like a discoball!

I got 2 lovely shades above, “Deeply Dashing” (left) which is brown with silver glitter flecks and “Smoky”  (right) which is a beautiful blue again with silver glitter flecks.  Both would be gorgeous over similar colour eyeshadows and I can’t wait to try them on myself or on my next photoshoot.  I also loved the dark “Jet Couture” shade but I have something similar from Chanel so didn’t pick it up this time but it would be beautiful over a dark smoky eye.

These are limited edition and are priced at €21.50 from MAC in Brown Thomas so grab them while you can!  Just because Christmas is over, doesn’t mean you can’t still sparkle 😉
