I got a 5g sample of this pigment (along with Grape) recently. I was looking for a semi-frosty browbone highlight that was a little different. The colour on this is really awesome. It's almost like a duochrome, going from a sheer frosty white to a sheer frosty pink and, in certain lights, a tiny bit of green hue. The coverage with this is buildable. You can blend it out for a sheer wash of colour, or layer over a base to get a nice, shimmering frosty white-pink. I had no problems with the texture. It was smooth and not too dry. I will definitely buy the full size when I run out of my sample (which should last a while). Only took the lippie off for the price. I usually buy online and $25+tax+shipping for one colour is a little steep, but totally worth it.
This is frosted white with a warm, peachy-pink sheen. The third picture above depicts the definite peachy tone quite well. The texture is crumbly; I'd prefer it more fine. I had a lot of fallout and found it hard to blend, even trying 3 different brushes. Only okay as an under-brow highlighter, but not great on the corner of the eye due to the above. Tried it as a cheek highlighter but I'm disappointed once again with it not blending well. And more fallout. One purchase I wish I hadn't made. I want the 'wow' factor, and I expected better from MAC, especially for the price. Nothing special at all. Meh.
one of the most beautiful products i have ever seen,i can just swatch it on my hand and watch how sweet that duochrome color is.this is how these vibrant shades make me feel(sounds like a total makeup junkie).i use it mostly as a cheek highlighter and looks gorgeous on my fair skin.looks great with a matte back eyeshadow too.i dont like over-shimered highlighters,but these kind of stuff is really my thing.chic,not extreme and yet original.the only downfall is that i am not totally satisfied with the lasting power.i apply it wet but still needs reapply sometime.i 've heard that it is being discounted,i have used the half of the jar to this day(old bigger pigment jars),it its is reallygonne be disc., i am definetely buying a back up
such a beautiful color.. i wore this today w/ milk pigment, swish e/s and a touch of lily white pigment & got a lot of compliments on it! i bought a small sample jar, but i think i'll be going through it very quickly! continued >>
The duo chrome effect is so pretty and unique. I love to use this as a cheek highlight above pink blushes because it is so smooth and gives a great sheen. Also like to use this on the inner corner of my eyes with pink or purple eye shadows.
This is one of my favorite pigments. I love the duochrome pink shimmer though its not over the top. I use just a touch of this as a brow bone highlight and it's very subtle shine. Also works great as a pop near the tear duct. I bought this in the new sized jar. Hate the packaging because I'm so afraid of tipping the bottle over and spilling everything. And the cap doesn't seem to screw on as tightly as I'd like. Plus its only half the size of the OJ so I expect that if I use a lot of it, I'll eventually have to repurchase. But I'm very glad that this is a regular perm item.
If i was to ever run out of this I deffo would buy again. Its the softest powder that looks creamy white with an intense pink duo-chrome. I love using this to blend out harsh edges on a smoky eye- it gives the most amazing glow to the look.
Pink Opal is a fine, vanilla coloured powder with an intense light pink duochrome. The coverage is good, it works great when applied wet but it's difficult to match with other eyeshadows because of the unusual duochrome colour. The only MAC pigments that I've found that compliment it well are Entremauve & Deep Blue Green. It looks very odd on its own, and tends to clash with my skin tone if I don't have a darker colour blended with it. So basically, it can be a good highlighting shade, but only if you're using other pigments with a similar duochrome. continued >>
Such a beautiful highlight color! The pink/purple duochrome also makes an awesome look over a black base. I only bought a sample, but I would definitely buy the full size! Get it!
This has become my new favorite all over wash color, my first favorite is Vanilla Pigment by MAC- I love it so much, but I like to change things up as well. I recieved a nice big sample of this in a recent swap as an extra, and upon looking at it in the jar it looks like a Yello gold color- no pink to it. Upon application though, this goes on a white slighty pink color with a little duochrome effect that is so unique & versatile with many eyeshadows! I personally myself would not wear this as a lid color just because my preference is to have a darker/neutral colors on my lid. I am so happy with this, and I think I will purchase a full size =) continued >>
