I love pigments because they’re huge and i feel like I’m getting my money’s worth. I hate pigments because I wish they were cheaper and smaller, like the holiday sets were.
I love my MAC pigments. They are some of the best things out there because I can use them for a variety of purposes. What I hate about them is that I can never get them to look as vibrant as they do on YOU! Also hate the containers from the holiday sets, even though the holiday sets have exactly the right amount.
I love them because I can use thing for tons of things. I hate them because some of the colors reallu aren’t multipurpose unless you’re doing a photo shoot or something. Like deep teal pigment… Lips, cheeks, uh no.
Love pigments! Of the six colors I have, my personal favorite is Naked. Of course, I wouldn’t mind having one of EACH to play around with!
Naked is my fave too!
I love pigments! They can look so vibrant and really stay in place. You also get so much for your money. I just wish they did more shades.
Love them!! I love the pigmentation in them. I love the way they apply.
I love my pigments for the color payoff without having to use much product. Fairylite was my first one I bought maybe 4 years ago and it is STILL going strong. My only complaint is the same as for regular eyeshadow really and that’s fall out on dark colors. I have tried all the tricks and nothing really helps aside from spot cleaning and re-foundationing.
love the vibrant colors. mixing n matching them can create soo many newer shades.
i wish they wer smaller n so obviously cheaper…like half a jar or even less…for like 7 8 bucks…:)
I love pigments although it can get messy sometimes….
I love them! They don’t move! I find that the the color(s) can be seen the best if you use either a eyeliner converter or something along those lines to make it a liquid or creamy texture…I like I’d weather everything by Bare Escentials…it comes with small mixing palette as well!
I love them… I feel that I get alot for my money and some of the colors are beautiful! I wish they had a dispenser more like the bare minerals eyeshadows. This would help when applying and also just in case you drop them it wouldn’t spill all over. Scary Thought!
I love pigments, but I hardly wear them:( I’d rather use plain eyeshadows though, since they’re easier to work with
I am just now falling in love with MAC pigments..I love the intensity of most colours and that you really get your money
I agree with pretty much everyone here, you guys said what I was thinking, love the intensity, big size for the price, but I do wish they were smaller like the holiday sets, except the container shape is too skinny, I can mix and match to my taste, they’re easy to work with, my fave is Naked too, wish I had a small jar of each color as opposed to a few big jars (i just think it’s too big!), they stay put all day with primer….
I’m kind of indifferent about pigments. I’ve never purchased my own jar but I have purchased several pressed pans off of others. I dunno, loose pigment is just too messy for me to deal with! I do love the texture and blendability of pigments though. I tend to stick to regular eyeshadow but I especially love Teal, Vanilla, Sweet Sienna, and Blue-brown pigments (which I’m wearing today actually). Thank gawd for the internets so I can get me some pressed pans, I would never want to pay for a full jar!
A little of both –
RANT: Fallout (ugh), huge container that I feel like I’ll never use, some of them can be sort of chunky, and they’re a bit expensive for one eyeshadow, I think.
RAVE: Gorgeous sparkle, great colors, ability to foil them (yay!) and you do get a lot for the somewhat steep $20 price tag.
I LOVE pigments. I hate that my MAC doesn’t sell them and I have no way to get them.
I love pigments. There the best bang for the buck. I use them a lot with fix as a wet/foiled medium and apply it so there isnt fall out. If I want it toned down just put it dry lightly over it. I use mac paint or eye prime (neutral or closee color) to get a vivid color payoff.
I wish there were more variety, but I hope they work on it.
Also, Christine, I met a fellow temptalia reader in scottsdale, az (hi melissa) so thank you for brining us makeup junkies together!
pigments can get pretty messy,but still love em!
Good: EXCELLENT color payoff..very pretty and I get LOTS of compliments.. (<—-green eye girl)
Bad: Expensive and you fill like they will never run out! Sometimes it’s a good thing on LE colors They need a bigger color pick
Good or Bad..I LOVE THEM!
I meant *feel* ..lol
im really unsure.. i had a pigment called Heritage Rouge or something and it creased REALLY BAD. even over UDPP and MAC paint.
I love the way pigments look but I hate how big the containers are. I wish they came in half sizes with half the pricetag
I love pigments, but there is nothing sadder than spilling it everywhere… my rug still is pink from a Bright Fuchsia accident
I am not so into them. I used to be because I liked to split the containers with my friends so it was like we would share the makeup, and that was fun! But I feel like they have a lot of fallout, and they are pretty expensive and I can’t get through the container cause there is so much. Some people mentioned they’d like them better in the holiday size and I agree!!
