    I don’t use MAC pigments much. I should invest in some neutral-ish ones, since that’s what I usually wear, but I always find myself buying the really bright ones!

    i used them with a little bit of fix+ on my brush and then apply it straight to the lid (even tho the warning says to keep away from eyes or something.. lol). Since it pigments are more rich in color, I tend to keep it simple.

  3. I use MAC pigments when I want a really bold and over the top look, or for something as simple as making it into a eyeliner, but mostly the over the top looks ;)<3

    If I use a pigment on the lid I will probably use some mixing medium. For colouful smokey eyes I’ll use pigments in the creas (dry, of course) to blend out the black.

    I use pigments for anything & everthing. Eyeshadow, lipgloss inhancer, face highlight, nail polish additive & foiling!

  21. Megan

    I haven’t had a chance to use the MAC pigments much… typically I use them as a wet shadow or put in some clear lip gloss as lip color but I only have 3 colors so the uses are a TAD more limited!

    I use pigments on my lid with water/glycerin mixture, or I add it to lipgloss/body lotion/etc. It has so many uses and the jars are huge they last so long!

  23. Liz

    I absolutely LOVED Push the edge when I saw it in store but had to refrain from buying it because I have bought too much stuff lately. So wish I could get this though.

  24. mlou

    oooooo, love the looks of this one!!

    I mostly use pigments dry or foiled on eyes. Foiled is easier if I don’t have much time & wearing contacts that day.

    Occasional use of one as face highlighter. Have not yet frankened a nail polish w/one.

    Oops posted above and forgot to say I use pigments on the lid with fix + and sometimes on the cheek or lips depending on the color. For example I use Vanilla pigment as a highlighter sometimes

    Because pigments are so universal, I used them for everything! I use hem with eyeshadows and lig glosses. But my favorite thing to do it make my own nail polish colors. I “Franken” old polish and make new colors. It’s so fun!

  31. I use MAC pigments as eye shadows, face highlighters, blushes, lip glosses, and all over body shimmers.

    I dont own any MAC pigments but have other company’s loose e/s and I use them as eyeshadow. Usually over a lighter color so its easier to blend and not as harsh. Unless I want it that way =)

    I only own vanilla as of yet, therefore I love to highlight and add it to my moisturiser for a bit of an all-over glow. My favorite way is still to dip in a brush and foil it on with my fix+. I wouldn’t mind to start experimenting with different colors, though 😉

    I use them under eyeshadows & depending on the color, as a hilighter or blush. I’ve even patted my most favorite, Pink Opal, ontop of lipstick to give it some more staying power and some extra added umph of sparkle.

    I don’t use a lot of pigment, but I would use this one wet on my eyelid for a dramatic look on a night out.

  52. Lauren

    I love MAC pigments but I only buy them in samples! My fave is Naked and I can use that one as an all-over highlight or across my lid for a pretty, natural look. They’re also fun to mix in with other things like body and hair gel.

  53. Torrie Mckeague

    I use them wet as a eyeshadow base or all over lid color. I mix it with clear gloss for my lips or to put glitter on or around my eye or face and also mix it with my moisturizer to use it as a blush. I absolutely love pigments because they are so versitile. I even sometimes use them with some nail polish to change the effect of the polish color or make up my own combo!

    I have only had one MAC Pigment and I use it for my eyelids. I apply it straight on the lid. It is such a beautiful color I think it is called softwash grey.

    I don’t own MAC pigments, but for my mineral pigments, I’d just use a damp brush to pick them up and apply, over a base.

    Hi Christine,
    I dont have any pigments yet as I live in the Bahamas and our MAC store here doesnt carry them. But I would love to make this one the first of my collection. I will definitely as we would say here in the Bahamas “I’ll be carryin on” when I wear this. Secondly purple (plum) is my favorite color

    i usually use them wet for the midtone to light colors, but the dark colors are dark enough so i use them dry. always as eyeshadows for me. warning labels be damned!

    The pigments I have I use them mostly in my eye looks. I have used a few as blushes at one time or another as well. I haven’t graduated to lip and nail looks yet.

  95. Pigments are my favourite MAC item, they can produce about 10 MAC eyeshadow-sized pressed pigments, and wet they apply like a dream. Often I apply them wet, to prevent any fallout, otherwise I dab them onto a base carefully with a flat shader brush, just like any other eyeshadow.

    Some of them can be mixed with foundation or lipgloss, too, so they come in very handy for contest or special occasion looks.
