The mini jars of MAC Pigment and Glitter in the new MAC Objects of Affection holiday sets are so small (0.09 ounces) that I can barely fit a brush into them. They’re tiny! Butterfingers that I am, I feel like the Abominable Snowman trying to hug Bugs Bunny when I hold these jars, so when I use them, to keep accidental drops and messes to a minimum, I have a little workflow I follow…
First, I place a paper towel down on my work surface. Then, I pour a small amount of whichever product I’m using on the towel, and pick up the product directly from there with my brushes.
Much less mess, and it’s easier to load just the right amount of product on the brushes. 🙂
These are pics of the Gold and Beige set, one of four sets in the LE holiday collection (here’s a look at the Pink and Rose set too). I really like this set’s neutral brown and beige shades for daytime looks, and all of the shadows are easy to blend by themselves and together.
Deep Brown, by the way, the matte chocolate Pigment in the kit, is beyond great. It’s one of the smoothest mattes I’ve ever smoothed.
I’ve actually never finished an entire jar of MAC Pigment before, but with this one being so pretty (and smaller than a full-size 0.15-oz. MAC Pigment jar), I suspect I’ll finish it. Smooth and silky, it buffs out beautifully. I think it’s lovely, even when you don’t go all out with it and just blend it on top of a creamy black kohl liner.
Keep your eagle eyes peeled for Gold and Beige, and the other three MAC Pigments and Glitter sets, when they show up October 27 on the MAC website, and a week later on November 6 when they arrive in stores.
