(Mac Vanilla Pigment – £16.50)
Why it has taken me so long to buy this product I do not know. I have seen it roaming around youtube and blogs for months but never got round to picking it up. I finally got my hands on it and couldn’t wait to show you. Mac pigments are loose powder pots filled with highly-pigmented, glistening powders. Rather than being packed into a pressed eyeshadow case, the pots instead allow you to pick up more product onto your brush and pack more product onto areas of your face. The vanilla pigment is a light creamy shade with a hint of a golden undertone. When it is applied to the skin and blended, it almost gives a dual tone effect and really brightens up the area it is applied to. I bought it to apply to the inner corner of my eye as you can see above, as well as using it as a cubids bow and brow bone highlight. It could also be used on the cheekbones and down the nose though if you wanted a super highlighted finish. The colour really is beautiful and multi use. I think I’m going to pick up a few more of these in the future as they apply really beautifully over other eyeshadows also. I definitely should have been quicker off the mark buying this, I think it will soon become a night out eyeshadow staple.
Have you tried any of the pigments? Which would you recommend?
