I posted a FOTD on Instagram on Friday that was inspired by Jaclyn Hill.
I used a MAC pigment that I picked up not too long ago as well as a couple of Makeup Geek eyeshadows.
She did this look in a video on youtube, here.
I thought I’d share it with you in a post with a review of the MAC Rose Pigment, rather just just posting a swatch on its own.
So, for a quick review, pigments are something that I’ve used since I was a teenager, but I quit using for over a year. I find that I need more time and patience to use a pigment rather than a regular eyeshadow because they tend to be messy and some are more difficult than others to apply, even wet.
I picked up the MAC Rose Pigment after watching Jaclyn Hill’s tutorial, along with two of the three Makeup Geek eyeshadows she used, Peach Smoothie and Mango Tango. In her tutorial, she also used Razzleberry, but I don’t have it and it’s out of stock until May, sadly.
MAC Rose pigment is a beautiful Rosey shade as the name suggests, but it has a beautiful copper shimmer in it that makes it totally unique. It’s almost a rose-gold shade. It’s so pretty and it looks amazing with green eyes, but it would look really pretty with any eye color, I’m sure.
MAC Rose pigment is surprisingly easy to apply. Rather than apply it wet, I did what she did in the video and used a sticky base, and it worked perfectly. I had fall out while applying it, but I just removed it with a makeup wipe after I was finished with my eye makeup. Anytime you’re using a pigment, glitter or a dark eyeshadow, it’s good to wait to do your face makeup until you’re finished with your eye makeup.
The pigment stayed on my lid all day and didn’t fall onto my eyeliner or cheeks, at all.
MAC Rose Pigment retails for $21. The jar is huge and will probably last forever, not to mention it only takes the smallest amount, it’s totally worth it. I’ll probably buy more MAC pigments in the future.
Now, onto the look & products used!
