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. Marc Jacobs Beauty Hot Pants (PiP, ) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Inhale (PiP, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Feel #2 (PiP, ) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Quadrille #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC At the Beach (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Supermodel (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain White Sand (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Viseart Kifu (PiP, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Ounce (PiP, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

YSL Indie Jasper #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dior Cuir Cannage #2 (PiP, ) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Les Cendres #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Frosted Fizz (LE, $17.00) is cooler (85% similar). bareMinerals Ball Gown (V2) (PiP, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Sephora Alabaster (PiP, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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.

Wow overpriced for the content for sure! Seems like the performance was reasonable enough though. I may have to get this anyway…just for the super cool packaging πŸ˜‰ Thanks for your review!

WTH?!? 0.03? What a ripoff!!! Yes, it’s a fairly pretty shade, cute container with the adorable spiderweb, but for a pathetic 0.03 of product? That’s less than a standard single eyeshadow! A big N.O.!

I guess you can use this as a shadow or face highlighter, but it’s $1 more AND has 80% less product than other MAC pigments?? IDK, the packaging looks nice, but t I’m not seeing anything special here that would replace a regular shadow or highlighter. Instead of Over Dressed pigment, maybe they should call this one Over Priced pigment!

At first, I was thinking how great that this pigment jar seems wider and squatter than the regular ones and so less prone to tipping. THEN I saw how little product there is. Shame on MAC for ripping us off like this. That alone is enough to prevent me buying this. I remember how angry (justifiably so) people were when they shrank the old pigment jars but left the price the same. This is even worse…

That pricing is insane! I think you’d have to be ride-or-die for the packaging to consider paying so much for little product, especially considering it got a B+. It’s certainly a decent grade but it’s not enough for a product like this!

I also feel like this shade could work as a cheek highlighter so the smaller size is a killer if you want to use it that way!

Oh this reminds me of the Mac pigment called Provence that I have 7.5g of I liked the little jar but not for that price you would think it had a 10k gold lid or something

This is a NO on so many levels for me. I don’t care for loose pigments. I’m not particularly swayed by fancy packaging. The shade isn’t what you’d call unique. And call me a curmudgeon, but I object to the price gouging!

That’s so weird about the teensy amount in the jar for the price! You’d think they’d be trumpeting it if it contained some special ingredient that justified the price per ounce! Pretty, though.

Stuff like this makes me not buy MAC products….even the stuff I know I like/would like. I own a business and I get that profit is extremely important, but MAC has become ridiculous…just pumping out overpriced low quality and low value products. Its sad to see what it has become.

The little jar of pigment is so cute. I’m kind of on a toofaced kick right now, so I’m not sure what to do with this new collection. haha.

wow! Ok, so this is a pass for me now that Ive seen your review. The size alone is annoying. I also wanted to know if you think the containers scratch up easily? It seems like in your photo, that the plastic jar is scratched? Did you find that to be so? Or is it just a close up photo that is illuminating those tiny flaws? Just curious. πŸ™‚

I think it’s just dust, to be honest. I don’t even open things until I take photos (literally, I take it out of the box and snap a photo, lol), but a lot of stuff still has dust/lint!
