    How does a pressed pigment differ from a normal eyeshadow? Do they serve different purposes/is one better for something?

    Thanks!

      Generally (I don’t know about this collection yet), the term pressed pigment refers to regular loose pigments that people take and make pressed shadows. I myself don’t particularly like loose shadows or powder but it’s probably because I’m a creature of habit. The most common method I have seen is by taking a small amount of pigment and mixing it with alcohol until it is a creamy wet consistency then pouring it into an empty mac pan. Once it is dried out a bit, a towel is placed over it then a quarter is placed on top of that and a heavy object on top of that and they are left to sit overnight to “press”. I tried it once and it worked but in my case the shadows were definitely much more fragile than a regular pressed shadow that was created at the factory that way rather than by hand.

    Will you be doing a full review on these??

    I can’t wait for the full review. I haven’t bought any of the products, other than the 163 brush. So many MAC limited collection have disappointed that I rather see the swatches first/full review. Just from the sneak peak picture alone looks like the pressed pigments could have fall out issues and the sculpting cream looks a little iffy on the texture.
