This is my current pigment collection. From L-R: Kitschmas, Tan, Melon, Silver Fog and Violet.
^ Kitschmas - a 'Light airy shimmering pink/mauve pearl' and a lovely shade. Very versatile as it goes with a lot of different colours. I like putting this on top of Mac's 'Beautiful Iris' shadow to make it a little more interesting.
^ Melon - 'Soft bright golden peach' - this reminds me a lot of Rubenesque paintpot. A beautiful peachy-bronze colour.
Silver Fog - a 'Platinum silver' - this is a Pro shade which means that it is only available at Mac Pro stores or if you order it online/over the phone. I struggle with silver as with my fair complexion and blue eyes I often think it isn't the colour for me, but this is actually an incredibly flattering hue.
^ Tan. Tan is a 'Muted bronzed pinky brown.' It is such a gorgeous shade of brown. Tan and Melon go very well together and I have created a few looks with these two. Tan is a very safe colour - by that I don't mean that it is a boring colour, but that you can't really go wrong with it. Love it!
^ Violet. A 'Vivid bright violet-purple.' Now, in my opinion, this is not violet at all. I would definitely term this as a purple and quite a dark purple at that. It is, however, such a pretty shade! It adds that extra something to a purple smokey eye.
So that is it. I love the Mac pigments - they are of exceptional quality. Nevertheless, they are £15 in the UK, which is rather expensive (this is why I seek my kind Aunt's help!) If you are looking for something similar for a lower price, I would always go for Barry M's Dazzle Dusts :) xx
