MAC Victorian Plum Pressed Pigment ($19.50 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a "plum with violet pearl." It's a brightened, medium-dark violet purple with cool undertones and a sparkly finish. This was an interesting shade, as it was actually a bit more opaque applied dry than damp, though both application methods yielded high pigment. It was smoother when applied with a damp brush. This had a drier consistency, which was particularly noticeable when I was applying it to the lid and trying to blend. There was some fall out during wear, and it started to crease after eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
An intensely creamy highlighter offering extreme pearlescence and versatility of finish. Apply dry for a high shine, or on damp skin for a dramatic wet look. Provides eye-catching sheer-to-moderate buildable coverage and natural dimension finish.
Pressed Pigment is delicate. Please handle with care.
