Whatever MAC, I’ll believe it when I see it.

A shame, they used to be so good, and now I basically expect their products to be junk 🙁

I wonder if they really are as full-on, over the top glittery and brightly pigmented as that photo would suggest. Actually, some of the shadows in the photo look quite nice, probably because they look like SO MANY EYE SHADOWS I ALREADY HAVE!

The colours look really pretty, but unfortunately I’m not seeing anything unique enough to make me buy. I guess I’ll have to wait for individual photos/swatches before I decide!

There are so many people who dislike MAC’s pressed pigments but I personally love them. I own every pressed pigment that has been launched so far and cannot wait for these ones.

i have bought the pressed pigments before.
I think it’s good and blendable but it will FALL OFF.
I don’t mind fall off but i hate the fall out destroyed my shininess of my eye makeup. THIS IS.
shame. It’s good idea for pressed pigments (not messy as loose pigments)

The description for Vanilla Diamond is so confusing. I know it’s a warm, yellow beige. But the paragraph above implies it’s a rich blue color. What’s up with that, MAC?

I used my first Pressed Pigment yesterday. Loved it! So sexy! I patted it on my lid with my finger. Had minimal fallout. Hardly any fallout actually. I want a few more of them.

I actually bought Black Grape and Damson. I used a Maybelline Color Tattoo when applying. I had zero fallout. The colors are rich and shiny. Really gorgeous. I never tried their previous pressed pigment release, but the two I just took home are amazing and unique.
