This review is for MAC's Naked pigment.
This is not a favorite. I will use up what I have left, but won't repurchase. I just can't deal with the glitter. From the reviews, it seemed like this product had some shimmer or very fine glitter particles. In mine, the glitter is big and that's all you notice on my eye. I feel like a tween with this on my eye. I've made this work for me by loading my brush with the pigment and then tapping it. The glitter usually falls off - but then so does a lot of the product. Below is my review of the different aspects of the product. It's not horrible, but just not for me.
About me - NC 15, paler in winter. Blonde hair. Blue eyes.
Color - It's a beige. The name Naked is spot on. I either use Urban Decay Primer Potion or MAC's Soft Ochre as a base and then apply Naked as a wash. It pretty much blends into my NC 15 skin. It's a bit darker (just a bit) and a bit more pink. As mentioned above, it also has big particles of glitter. I am not wowed by the color. It works for a nude eye, but I just can't deal with glitter. I try to tap all the glitter off my brush and wear this as a wash. I usually pair this with eyeliner, lots of mascara, a contour, blush and a red lippie.
Texture - The texture is nice and soft. It's easy to apply.
Wearability - It wears well for me as long as I have some sort of base.
Packaging - I have the old MAC pigment packaging. It's a simple small container. It contains approx. 7.5 g and I estimate around 4 teaspoons of product.
Price - $19.50. This is a decent price. Pigments last a long time.
I have had Naked since its release but i'm still a little more than frustrated with the texture. After the great fairylite disappointment, i was pretty sure that naked would provide a similar texture as say, vanilla, but no. This is the warmer version of fairylite with gold microglitter.
It works in the inner third of the eye, over a smokey or natural look.
It is especially effective if you do a full dark eye and realise you look a little too tired for that full on effect.
To lighten the look, put a light layer of foundation or neautral base in the inner third, over the top of your completed eye and use a 239 to pack and blend the Naked Pigment on and then use a highlight in the inner corner. Job done!
the colour looked lovely in the jar but on the eyelid which is hardly noticeable.
i like the color and i like that it's not that shiny ..hmm ,well it's not shimmery, but I It's has some golden undertones, pretty highlight color but on me this doesn't really show
so,it's good but i wouldn't say it's a great pigment.
I love this product, because I love all the different ways I can use it. When applied wet over my eyelids it's beautiful, and I also like it as a highlighter for my face. I haven't tried adding it to clear lipgloss yet, but I'm sure it will be beautiful on the lips as well. Would definitely repurchase.
I realy like Naked pigment. I use it as a highlight, lid color or sometimes even as a wash of color over my entire eyelid. it's a good color to have because it gives you that clean fresh look but can also be used to assist with darker shades (blending them etc).
Love love LOVE this pigment. Looks great especially on fair skin as a lid colour. I like pairing this with Wedge or Cork for a natural, glowy daytime look or with Chocolate Brown pigment for a gorgeous evening look. You only need the tiniest amount as well. I have a huge sample of this from my sister which will last me forever! But when I run out I will re-order in a heartbeat.
i really wanted to love this color, especially after i saw kim K. use this with contrast for one of her looks. Unfortuantly, it doesn't show up at all on me. im NC35 skin tone and it completly blends into my skin as if nothing is there. I gave it 4 out of 5 b/c it wasn't a total waste. I can use it as a neutral brow bone color, sweep it over my entire lid as a base or use it to blend out lines. I've seen some ppl on MUA saying they use it as a face highlight and as a nude lip color if you mix it with gloss. i haven't tried that yet but i will give it a shot.
I'm kinda mad I didn't get this sooner before they started using a smaller bottle for pigments which I think is a total rip off for $20 bucks, but I do love this color. It's my go to highlighter and all over eye for a neutral look. Very versatile color and works well with m dark skin. Probably won't purchase again only because there's a lot and a little goes a long way.
