    MAC Pressed Pigment Collection Discussion (December 2012)

    ... time for a new thread


    Gorgeous eyes, from sheer and ethereal for day to intense and illuminating for evening. Shadows in complementary tones offer pigmented effects for a season of creative colour play. MAC innovation creates a highly pearlized, creamy Pressed Pigment that glistens with a shimmering translucent finish when applied dry and high-gloss dramatic coverage when applied wet. 12 colours in stunning shades spotlight the eyes making them glow with brilliant accents. And, for artistic blending, the 215 Medium Shader Brush is the perfect tool for Pressed Pigment technology.


    Pressed Pigment
    Angelic – Off white (Frost) *
    Enlightening – Deep silver (Frost) *
    Jet Couture – Charcoal black (Frost) *
    Blonde Streak – Light cream (Frost) *
    Blue Willow – Light icy blue (Frost) *
    Amethyst – Purple with silver undertone (Frost) *
    Flicker – Pastel yellow (Frost) *
    Sweet Acting – Mid-tone pink (Frost) *
    Smoky – Deep silver blue (Frost) *
    Light Touch – High pearlized powder in W10 shade (Frost) °*
    Day Gleam – High pearlized powder in NC35 shade (Frost) °*
    Deeply Dashing – High pearlized powder in NW55 shade (Frost) °*

    Brush
    215 Brush – Medium Shader Brush (Synthetic Fibre) °

    I'm remembering now that one of the colors is a light yellow - I know that'll be really nice with the sparkly pressed pigment effect.

    Yellow as in gold-yellow or more like Sun Blonde? Either way, it sounds stunning.

    My impression was more in the light lemon, pastel direction.

    The way my mind was working when I saw all this info was: Pressed Pigments: CHECK. and then only scanned through the color list lightly, since I knew I'd be buying a pile of them no matter what. Definitely getting the black with gold sparkle - there's zero chance I'd skip that.


    Have you tried the silicon sponge applicators for these yet? With all my shadows, I'm finding I automatically reach for my pressed piggies and one of these over and over. The results are impeccable.

    I gasped when I read this, I said to my local Mac counter when these pigments first came out that I wished they had some in colour and the Mac Gods have answered my calls!!

    I am itching to see the full colour story and what is coming out. I can see me depotting the lot of them and putting them into a palette of their own

    A pressed piggie palette sounds gorgeous. Did you depot the ones you got from F&B?

    OK Listen Up! I double checked the release date on these. It's Dec. 26th, which is great because these will be so awesome for New Year's. I got to see some paper swatches too! There's one that's a gorgeous pearl white with opalescent sparkle! I also saw the black with gold sparkle - OMG! Also saw a light silver that wasn't too bluish and sort of a peachy champagne color. There's going to be a "deep silver", along with the lighter one, plus a lavender and a pastel pink, and that yellow. I think there is a blue too, but no green.

    These may become perm! I'm jazzed about that. I honestly love the ones I have even more than the EDES, and we all know how great those are!

    Just use the new palette without the insert. A set of colored pressed piggies in a palette with clear lid should look stunning.

    Omg it would!! I havent yet because I am still waiting on the Pro Palettes to get to Australia. We still dont know when they are coming

    I cant wait for these. I can see myself going nuts and ordering probably close to the whole release, especially with just the little information that we do know I am already drooling

    I finally used my pressed piggies from f&B and got a lot of compliments on them. I am afraid, the sparkle irritates my eye though. I only had a little fall out and pressed my brush in the pan, and pressed them into my lid, I didn't do anyt sweeping motions. I'm going to pick up TFGlitter Glue today and see how that works... I also noticed that Bobbi Brown came out with colors very similiar and have a lot of sparkle.

    In a pinch, you could try the new silicon sponge applicators from MAC. I keep raving about how perfectly they apply the Pressed Piggies. I get zero fallout and all the precision I need to keep it away from my tear ducts.

    I thought I responded to you already Liba.

    I do plan to pick that up b/c of your rec, I didn't realize it was pro and it takes a lil bit more maneuvering on the train to get to my pro store. LOL I get lazy on the weekend.

    I really need to get these because I love my pressed pigments and will also get several from this collection.

    It should be even more fun to work with them when I use these applicators!

    They are perm aren' t they?
