MAC Amethyst Pressed Pigment | Review & Swatches

Monday, 30 June 2014

Hello Beauties! Sorry there has been a bit of disruption to my usual posting schedule and I didn't manage to get any posts out this weekend! On Friday I finished my placement at Disney Channel which meant a lot of tears, celebrating and moving out, which have all contributed to me not having enough time to schedule any posts. I had an amazing year at Disney and I was so sad to leave (even though it hasn't sunk in yet that I won't be going back), but you didn't click on this post to hear all about my year in London, right? Exactly, so I'll get on with the post! 

As one of my leaving presents, Toby and Haamid who work in my team got me a very generous MAC voucher, I really wasn't expecting to get anything so I was shocked and over the moon to receive such a thoughtful gift...which I immediately went and spent! Amongst other things, one of the things I decided to treat myself to was this beautiful pressed pigment called Amethyst. 

MAC Amethyst is a purple pressed pigment with silver undertones and it's just oh so pretty. Amethyst creates a beautiful purple wash of shimmer across your lid which is just stunning. I'm a big lover of glittery or metallic eyeshadows, and I'm a big fan of the loose pigments, so this was a no brainer for me. The MAC Pressed Pigments offer you all of the beauty of their regular pigments, with none of the fall out, which is usually my only concern when it comes to buying pigments. 

At £17, these babies don't come cheap but for me they're worth every penny. They're so pigmented and glide on to your lids like a dream, and you just can't get this level of sparkle from regular MAC eyeshadows. 

Lots of Love,
