This pigment is a cross between Teal and Deep Blue Pigment. It's a smoky teal green. Great for a smoky green eye but not my everyday go to color.

Just used this after having it for over a year (a sign I have way too much makeup). This is actually a pretty unique color, I think. It's more of a "cooler" green with a hint of teal and gold. I used this on the outer third with a minty green over the rest of the lid with Feline liner. I am going to try this foiled next. It also has a lovely consistency, as do all of the Overrich pigments. I would buy a full jar of this if I could find it. Definitely one to have if you are a pigment collector or just a nice green to add to your collection.

I really don't understand pigments. I prefer a pressed eyeshadow. Pigments get all over my cheek, but maybe I just dont know how to apply it correctly.

Purchased at a local CCO and when applied w/damp brush it gives a very medium green with a gold sheen So Pretty:) If green e/s looks good on you then this needs to be added to the mu stash:)

I love this pigment. I got this as a sample from a friend and switched it on my hand, i fell in love. The color payoff is very good and it doesn't have much fall outs. I'm usually not a green e/s wearer, but with this, it looks so pretty on and I wore it on the lid with a light brown on my crease, it's such a good color for my brown eyes. would def. repurchase..

this is easily the best green e/s i have seen i dont usually wear green except this one. the texture is soooo smooth! some complain that there are half the regular product but my jar was almost full. i guess the pigment is sold by weight, some of them are heavier so theres less in the jar. but whatever, a jar will last me a life time anyway =ppp

this has become HG quality to me in a matter of days!! i got it over the weekend at an outlet store and i only paid $13 for it. i swatched it and fell in love immediatly. if i hadnt bought the last one i would have gotten another one!!!! =)
its a beautiful green that smolders when applied heavily but it is also sheer enough that if u apply it lightly it draws attention to your eyes in a subtle and understated sexy way.. its so versatile i love it!! i used it for a daytime smokey eye with Antique Green on the lid, Tempting e/s from MAC (i believe it was from the cult of cherry quad) in the crease and rice paper on the brow bone.. i used a little Sumptions Olive to line my lower lash line, a few coats of black mascara and BOOM instant glam without looking over done
my BF went nuts and kept saying how amazing my eyes looked and how intense but not caked on it looked
def buy this if u can.. i am already looking for a backup

I'm not a big fan of pigments, preferring the potted eye shadows, finding them easier to work with. I usually get so much fallout with pigments if I don't use the right brush and a good base or primer.
AG however, is definately a pigment worth taking the risk with, when using the right products with it. It's not a multi-purpose pigment, but it's one of the best shadows in my collection. On me [N3, pink undertones, using the UDPP as a primer] it's a lovely forest green colour, with touches of gold and teal. Wore it on the outer V with Golden Olive pigment [another great, universally flattering pigment] on the outer 1/3 of the lid, UD Deluxe shadow in Graffitti packed/stippled onto the centre of the lid, with MAC's Swimming as a base, and Fineshine as a highlight at the inner corners and browbone.
It's an amazing shade that can be toned down as a wash; and I've been pairing it with Shroom and Flip from the BBR collection for everyday looks right now. But it's interesting enough to be pulled off for more dramatic looks for nighttime.
Definately a pigment worth risking fallout and spillage over the bathroom counter for. And considering pigments last forever, the price is great.

Antique Green is my new favorite eyeshadow...if you love greens you will love this! It is very similar in color to MAC's Verdigris cream eyeshadow (part of the recent Metal Urge collection) which I hear is also very similar to the popular 6th Sin cream eyeshadow that came out last year. BUT, Antique Green is much easier to apply and blend in my opinion. It has this blackened green color that's like a cross between emerald green and forest green, however it's not too dark. I can wear this all over my lid without it looking too heavy and I'm pretty pale. This looks great as a green smokey eye with Carbon in the crease. It was only a few dollars more than the cream shadows, so I think it's a much better deal knowing how long the MAC pigments last and I do not have to worry about it drying out or creasing or anything that happens with the cream shadows. Because it's more of a cool green, it looks beautiful with navy blues, greys, and purples but it also looks great with browns and taupes. Very versatile if you're daring enough! This color works perfect over Sweet Sage fluidline as a base or Shimma paint (my favorite that is now discontinued - a midtone taupey/grey/silver color). It probably looks dynamite over Blackground paint pot for a night time look, which I have yet to try with this.
Oh and a trick I do with my pigments: I have some Fix+ that I've decanted into a small bottle with a dropper. I place one drop into the pigment cap, then I pick up some pigment with my brush (either #239 or #242), then swirl my brush in the cap. The Fix+ helps the pigments adhere to my skin without worry of fallout or fading. The dropper method is much less wasteful IMO than spraying the Fix+ onto your brush two or three times. I've heard that people have used Visine or their own water/glycerine, but I haven't so I can't comment if these work better or not.

this pigment has quickly become one of my absolute favorites..
when i first saw the product photos and swatches of the Overrich pigments i was overwhelmed with joy.. i love to collect pigments and all the colors were right up my alley... but when i saw the swatch for Antique Green, i thought i could pass on it.. it didnt really call to me, and i was already going to break my pockets buying the 6 other pigments i didnt have..
boy, was i WRONG.. when i saw this in person i absolutely fell in LOVE and HAD to make it mine... the color to me looks like a smoked out/blackened teal with an almost duochrome-like quality to it.. the texture of all of the Overrich pigments (with the exception of Mauvement and maybe Mega-Rich) is very silky and luxurious, and when applied looks SO much more polished than all the other MAC pigments (almost reminiscent of chanel e/s)... they all look grainy in comparison... and for that fact alone, i feel it is a fair exchange to get a jar that looks only 3/4 full..
i loved this entire collection, but Antique Green and Vintage Gold were my hands down faves... i would repurchase every single pigment

I saw this in the drawer at the MAC counter and NEEDED it. I have a lemming for all things green. I had the MAC girl do my eyes with this and the fluidline I bought before I left the counter (they obliged since they were dead and I spent $$$). It looked stunning, and I was a happy girl. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a soft green eye that can be foiled or applied heavily for an evening look. This is quickly becoming my staple e/s that I may need a backup for.

Oh, how I love shimmery teals. I was very pleased to see this in MAC's Overrich collection. Swatched on my hand it's greener and not as bright as Teal pigment, but on my lids it was very close, which is why I took a lipstick off - it was just a touch more subtle than Teal. It works as a crease color or liner, or if you're feeling really daring, a lid color.

This is very very pretty. it's a really nice dark green. it is very annoying though that the jar is less than full
Age: 30-35 Skin: Dry Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I rarely buy a full jar of pigment in a shade that can only be used one place on the face. I broke my rule with Antique Green! It is lovely applied wet or dry. It works as lid color, crease color or liner. It looks lovely with Saddle, Plumage, Oceanique, Shade and Tealo. It works great with items from d'bohemia as well! It is more green than Blue Absinthye, and more teal than Humid. It's like a fall version of Waternymph.

If you like green eyeshadows like Fiction, Humid, Greensmoke, Teal pigment, then look no further. You NEED this.

New from the Overrich collection released September 2008. Retails for $19.50 and comes in the standard MAC pot although these weigh less than some other MAC pigments. My jar came about three quarters full. Antique Green is a bold vibrant emerald green with a touch of teal to it. Very pretty. Goes great with my brown eyes and NC30 skin. When you use this wet, you see the gorgeous metallic teally green undertones to it. Simply Stunning. LOVE this!

This is the one piggie I bought out of this collection. It's a smoked out green on the teal-ish side. I have difficulty wearing green e/s because of my complexion. I look sick when wearing most greens because of my yellow/olive tones. I think this is one of the prettiest piggies I have seen so far. So pretty I am going to wear it alone w/ a highlighter-which I almost never do.

This is the most beautiful piggie which I had seen from MAC so far.

Antique Green is BEAUTIFUL!!! It is described as a turquoise green with green pearl... I think its more of a smoked dirty teal... Definately more teal than green... When I was reading reviews for this pigment here and there it was the one I was least interested in, but when I saw it myself I was amazed... If it wasnt going to be permanent at MAC Pro Stores I would have bought a backup or two... Definately a MUST-HAVE for fall...

Antique Green is a sparkly, blackened green. Or maybe a deep teal. Super fine texture like a mineral powder. Can go on very sheer or build for intensity. Not really a huge fan of green eye shadows. But this one is different than my other emerald, turquoise, or teal pigments. Glad to have it.
