I know this may be a shock to some of you but...this was my very first time trying out MAC pigments! I have never tried them because they are a little expensive-$20.00 a pop! But you do get a lot of product for what you pay for and I am definitely going to be on the look out for pigments and glitters in the future. I thought this set was a great way to try them for a reasonable price ($32.50 each set) and each set comes with 5 pigments/glitters. Not bad eh?
These would totally make wonderful christmas gifts for your loved ones out there who love MAC and love makeup! I love it!
Colors in the Cool Capers Kit:
1. Grape Pigment-Shimmery deep purple
2. Fuchsia Pigment-Shimmery medium pink
3. Deep Blue Green Pigment-Dark shimmery teal/black (great for a smokey eye!)
4. Reflects Transparent teal Glitter-Shimmery white/clear with turquoise shimmer
5. Kitschmas Pigment-Light shimmery lilac/lavender
Here are swatches that I did on my eye of each pigment/glitter color. For each swatch, I primed my eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion and I applied these eye colors wet using MAC's Fix +. I loved how easy it was to apply each of these shadows and they looked really good on their own. You can even layer pigments over other eyeshadow colors to really make them pop!
Deep Blue Green Pigment
Reflects Transparent Teal
I really love all the colors. The one that I find most interesting is the Glitter in Reflects Transparent Teal. I think this one is best when it is layered over another eyeshadow to give it a pop of glitter! I also like the fact that this glitter has sort of a reflect of teal when you turn at certain angles. Very pretty!
I also had a bit of a problem applying Kitschmas pigment. I had major fallout! But it's nothing I can't handle :) I love it anyways, very pretty!
Overall, I really enjoyed this set and I might just look out for more MAC holiday items. Have any of you tried this set? Have any of you tried these pigments/glitter? Let me know in the comments section loves!
Disclosure: I purchased this set from a MAC store.
