Mac Nocturnals - Green & Teal Pigment Set

4:40:00 PM

Mac Cosmetics has released three sets of pigment for the holiday season. I have gotten the green and teal set. It looked like something that was different from anything in my collection already pigment wise. They retail at $32.50 on Mac's website. There is also the Black & Gold set (which I am eyeing) and the Silver & Violet set. I believe the Green & Teal set is sold out but I am almost positive you can grab this one off ebay.

For those of who don't know about pigments, they are really fun. They are loose shadows and mostly shimmery and glittery. You can do so many things with them, from a highlight on the cheeks, mixing with foundation for a glow, or mix with your lipstick for some added dimension. They also are one of those products that can work wonderful wet. Mac's Fix+ is a great product to use for that.


One of my favorite pigments from Mac is the shade Tan. It is a rose gold/bronze shade. You can mix this with foundation and it looks gorgeous! It is really great all year long but in the summer with a tan = golden goddess! For my fellow blue eyed lady's out there, it makes your eye color stand out so vividly.

Anyway, back to this holiday set....

The set includes these five shades:

Reflects Gold - a white with golden glitter
Old Gold - a tarnished gold
3D Gold - pure glitter with some rainbow like reflects
Deep Blue Green - a deep navy teal with shimmer
Just Before Dawn - a warm taupe frost

These shades really can make some interesting looks. I have not had the pleasure of experimenting with them yet but I look forward to it. That Reflects Gold is a really pretty highlight on the lid for just about every look from a daytime look you want to spice up to a smoldering evening smoke. Gold is very in this season and this is a nice set for people wanting to experiment with that trend and the pigments themselves. Even these smaller sized pigments will last you FOREVER. You only need the smallest amount to get intense pigmentation.
