MAC Overdressed Pigment

MAC Overdressed Pigment ($23.00 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a “fleshy beige with pearl.” It’s a light-medium, peachy beige with warm undertones and peach pearl and shimmer. It darkens considerably when used with a damp brush–to more of a medium peach. The dupes provided are based on the dry swatch. MAC At the Beach (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Viseart Kifu (P) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Quadrille #2 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Les Cendres #4 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #1 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Cuir Cannage #2 (P) is darker (90% similar). YSL Indie Jasper #2 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Guerlain White Sand (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Galore (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Shade IV (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Supermodel (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel #1 (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel #1 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Peony (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). bareMinerals Ball Gown (V2) (P) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Fizz the Season (LE) is more shimmery (85% similar).

MAC Pigments are multi-use products, which means they can be used on eyes, lips, or body/face (though some shades are not safe for eyes and/or lips). I didn’t see any warnings on this shade. The texture is more powdery and very, very finely-milled, so it blends out well on bare skin but still binds together and can be used without requiring an adhesive base or a damp brush. As an eye product, the color lasted for seven and a half hours before creasing slightly when applied dry.

However, I was particularly startled to see that the container holds a mere 0.03 oz. — a full-size pigment is 0.15 oz. (and they used to be more years ago!) — and 0.03 oz. is just so small compared to a regular pigment, while the price is also a dollar more (full-sized pigments are priced at $22.00).

The MAC x Charlotte Olympia collection arrives online on March 17th.
