Evening all! There are a lot of Christmas sets that are coming out in stores, and i always love the MAC Limited Edition Holiday sets.
I picked up two of the Objects of Affection Pigments set, and i am not going to go into too much detail because some of the pigments are part of the permanent collection. The set comes with four pigments and one glitter. All the pigments are exactly the same quality as the ones from the permanent line. You get 2.6g of pigment and 4g of glitter.
These are fantastic sizes for pretty much everyone. It gives people a chance to try out the product, without having to purchase a full size, and it's an excellent addition to the kits of makeup artists. Normally an individual pigment is £17 and this set is only £26!
My main aim of this post was to share swatches, as i couldn't find many on darker skin tones. The swatches below are applied dry and without a primer. I prefer using the pigments wet, as the intensity of the colours are just incredible. I applied some MAC Mixing Medium onto my hand, so that the glitter had something to adhere to.
I thought the entire set was going to be just pink, but i like how there is mixture of soft pinks, tans and a burgundy. It makes the set much more wearable, and tan would be a fabulous shade to use as a wash of colour. This set is perfect for all skin tones, and you can use the pigments as subtly or as intense as you wish.
I love using pigments, and i think this is great for makeup enthusiasts. Just remember to do your eye makeup before the rest of your face, as you may experience some drop down.
This is a limited edition item, so get it quick before it sells out!
