Mac Pigment in 'Vanilla'







Something which I never payed attention to from Mac was the pigments. However towards the end of last year I started to notice more and more people talk about these little pots of heaven and couldn't resist. I know in the past these pigments use to come in a larger size however I really don't think I need any more product as there is literally so much to use its bound to last a lifetime. So in September I decided to pick up the shade Vanilla. This was a tough decision as they offer so many different shades, I have my eye on Tan and Naked as well which are more towards the bronze/ gold end of the spectrum. I love the fact that these pigments are so multifunctional, you can use them as highlighters and eye shadows depending of course on the choice of colour.
A pigment is a highly concentrated loose colour powder to help adhere to the skin. They can be used to create a subtle wash of colour or a dramatic effect. These pigments supposedly do not streak or cake and are long- lasting and easy to blend.  This is the first ever pigment I have tried and found out I have definitely been converted. They are not at all cakey and almost give the appearance that your skin has a natural glow. I find it easiest to apply with my fingers as otherwise things will become a little messy. It's such a nice alternative to perhaps your usual powder eye shadows and highlighters. Although £17 for a pigment may seem absolutely ridiculous it is definitely worth the hefty price tag as not only do you receive 4.5g of product but you can also use this for a variety of different purposes.
Vanilla is a beautiful soft ivory white which is perfect as a highlighter or as an intense under brow highlight. I find I only really use Vanilla on my cheek bones as not only can it be fiddly but I find it too much underneath my brow. Especially if I am already using shimmery eye shadows all over the lid. It makes your skin look so flawless and glowing however this product isn't for the faint hearted. As I find it can be striking and difficult to apply at times however I am fully impressed with this product and am so glad I added this to my collection.
Is a pigment something you have ever tried before?

  3. I love MAC Vanilla Pigment but find it can be a bit messy which is why I tend to stick to pressed eyeshadows. If you like pigments Melon is another lovely shade that's worth checking out xx
