(Some) MAC Pigments Review

Here’s a bulk swatch of 8 more MAC pigments.

Universal Mix – sheer ivory with a mix of blue/green and gold sparkles
Rich Life – dark brown with silver shimmer

Universal Mix, Rich Life

Both were released in the All Ages, All Races, All Sexes collection at the beginning of 2010. Universal Mix is sparkle city. I can see it working as a good eye and cheek highlighter but seeing as there isn’t much of a base colour, I don’t think it’d be good as a base eye shade. Rich Life is too cool for me. Might have some potential if used wet but too much work!

Universal Mix, Rich Life
See the sparkles in Universal Mix.

Lithe – warm light peach with gold shimmer
Bloodline – charcoal taupe shade with a plum undertone with gold shimmer

Lithe, Bloodline

These were the only 2 things which interested me from the Fabulous Felines collection (released sometime in August 2010). Lithe is so gorgeous. It’s like a much toned down Melon and it was sooo smooth! Bloodline, like Rich Life, is probably best used wet. It’s such a complex shade which makes it more pretty!

Lithe, Bloodline

Emerald Green – jewel green with silver shimmer
Antique Green – smokey green teal
Naked – very neutral, very beige with pearly shimmer
Shimmertime – icy baby pink with silver shimmer

Emerald Green, Antique Green, Naked, Shimmertime

Apart from Shimmertime, these are permanently available from MAC. Emerald Green is similar to Humid eyeshadow. It suits its name as its a very vibrant shade of green 🙂 Antique Green is much darker compared to Emerald Green. It’s a blackened shade of green with hints of teal. Naked is a very soft skintone shade with the perfect amount of subtle shimmer. Shimmertime was apart of the She Shines collection, which IMO saw the release of some VERY great pigments. It’s a light pink shade with hints of silver.

    >Those greens are seriously amazing! And SHIMMERTIME is my favourite! I'm super envious that you can handle pigments so well! I used Tan Pigment the other day and I dropped that cap cover thing, and a whole bunch dropped all over the floor. My face was like O_O"

    >@thilytran – Antique Green is just gorgeous! I'm not sure why the pink in Shimmertime won't show in these pictures. How do you use Shimmertime?@Jen W – No problems 🙂 It is amazing. Such a nice shade of green.@Ailing – You should get the pigment samples. Much cheaper and works out better anyways. Those full size pigment jars are HUGE and it'd take you 2 lifetimes to finish one.
