MAC Pigment in Violet | Review & Swatches

Sunday, 11 May 2014

Hello Ladies! I hope your all enjoying the weekend, whatever you are up to! I'm super excited as tomorrow I'm off to a Benefit event for the launch of their new 'secret' product, I can't wait to meet some of my fave bloggers and talk all things beauty with them!

I thought I'd review another one of my blog sale purchases now that I've had time to play around with it a bit more, and this time it's not limited edition - hurrah!

I recently picked up the MAC Pigment in Violet and I have to say, I was a little bit worried at first. As it's such a deep colour, I was worried that I wouldn't get much use from this. But so far, I've been able to use it to create a purple smokey eye and mix it using MAC's mixing medium, or just water, to create a beautiful vibrant eye liner. 

As with all of MAC's pigments, Violet is highly pigmented ( I mean, just look at that swatch!) and the tiniest amount is all you need to get an opaque colour. Violet is, as the name suggests, a beautiful vibrant violet colour with a lovely shimmery sheen to it. If your a fan of purple eyeshadows like myself, I suggest you get yourself down to your local MAC counter, as you certainly won't regret purchasing this. Its highly pigmented, it lasts so long and its a gorgeous colour - if you don't mind loose pigments then what's not to love?
