I bought Lily White when I was at the height of my pigment craze. I was several years younger, and even then, this was almost too glittery/frosty for me. It just looked too unnatural! Fast forward a few years later. I'm going through my stash, weeding out the things I don't use because I am so over having too much stuff. I still love the color. It's a beautiful pale goldish peach, which would be amazing, except I cannot take the damn fallout. I can handle the frost, but the glitter fallout is just ridiculous. I applied it over a sticky base less then an hour ago, and somehow I still manage to have fallout under my eyes and on my cheeks. I hate to say it, but you gotta go Lily White. You have just got to go.

Gorgeous highlight color for my NC20 skin. I used to use Vanilla, but now I'm pretty partial to Lily White. :)

This pigment is crazy sparkly and incredibly beautiful .. This is like Stila Kitten on crack! Slightly brighter and very eye opening .. but this pigment isn't without it's downfall, which is primarily fall out. The texture on this isn't spectacular .. it's somewhat chunkier, so this is one that definitely is better used wet. I have the jar and also have a pressed pan of this, and definitely reach for the pan version far more for ease of use. This is however, incredibly stunning, very shimmery and looks amazing used wet on the lid, or the inner corners of the eye to highlight. Definitely one of the prettiest pigments in my stash!

This is my favorite pigment!!! I love all of the shimmer!!! Very pretty base eyeshadow!

I got a small vial of this pigment that'll be up for swap soon. There's just too much fallout and the color is less than unusual! I could get a nicer highlight *many* different places. I see no lily to this pigment; in fact, it looks peach in the container, which is why it's surprising to find plain white + many sparkles. No thank you.

Great quality and texture. The best for highlighting! I have a lot of fun using this color as a blending tool as well.

I think this is a great highlighter for evenings.. Very shimmery and pretty.. not too lite on my skin.

I generally use this as an eyeshadow, as it's too shimmery to use anywhere else...using a really light hand, you can use it as a highlighter. If you can pull off really light, really shimmery products on your eye area, you'll like this. It's a bit hard to work with, as it's really easy to get it everywhere and end up looking like a pixie. Stays on quite well. I usually mix it with another MAC pigment, Blue (they're not kidding, it's straight up Blue) to make a light blue, shimmery eye shadow-- done right, it's really pretty...try it!

This pigment's quality is great overall, smooth texture and intense color. Definately more white than lily. It came across practically starck white on my lids. Starck white and shimmery from here to next month. Not for me. I gave it 3 lipppes because the quality is good, but its not really a fun color and, for me, its not even a useful everyday color. Not FJ worthy.

I liked the color, but its hard to use, and the packaging is terrible.. im not a big pigment fan... i wont be repurchasing.

Gorgeous neutral pigment that I can use as an overall colour to brighten my eyes when I'm in a rush.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
At first, I think that it's very dark in the pot! When I apply it on my skin, it looks great and not dark at all!
Won't buy it again since I've a lot left! However, this is a nice product to recommend! Reference: I'm Asian, over 30 with oily skin, skin tone: medium beige with some redness on the chin!

This is one of my all-time favorite pigments. I always use in my inner half lid to brighten up any look. There is definately a lot of fall out with this pigment and I always need tape next to me to clean it up. It is just like Stila Kitten, so if you have a gripe about the fall out, I suggest that. This is a highly shimmery champagne color that gives any look oomph. LOVE IT!

so lily white has a lot of fallout, but i don't care because on my PPP skin this color is just amazing! i cannot tell you how much i love lily white. i got it as an extra when i bought a bunch of other piggies from a girl in a livejournal community and i kinda tossed it aside. one day right before my vacation i decided to play around with it a bit and BAM i fell in love. like i said, there is a lot of fallout, so i keep some qtips and scotch tape (my go to fallout/glitter remover) handy. it's such a gorgeous color and it compliments everything. i highly reccomend this, and i pray all the time that the mac gods decide to do a repromote so i can stock up.

This is an amazing pigment and one of my favorites!!! I like wearing this in the evening over a deep cool brown like Shu M Brown 871 in the lid/crease and blend Lily White almost to the brow. Something about the dim lights that really captures the shimmmer and it is gorgeous. I don't find Lily White flaky/chunky, you just need to apply the tiniest bit and work it in/blend really well. There is fallout so I usually wait to apply Lily White as my last makeup step...I take a hand mirror and bend forward at the waist to apply at an angle so any extra pigment fall onto the mirror or place a tissue under your eye during application...it stay on all day once applied...LOVE!!!

My favourite pigment so far. I wear this literally every day. It's an incredibly pretty pale peachy gold with silvery shimmer. I wear it washed over my eyelid with a deeper brown (candystriper pigment) blended into the socket, and I find it adds gold lights to my dark green eyes. It's also flattering on my ultra pale, cool toned skin. It is prone to dropping glitter all over your cheekbones no matter how carefully or sparsely it's applied, but a quick swipe with a moist tissue is usually enough to take care of any fallout. I add it to body powder for a soft shimmer, and I've also taken to hoarding samples in case I run out!

I got a sample of this pigment from a generous MUAer.
The name is a bit misleading; I don't find "Lily White" to be white at all, but rather a very pale pinky-peach champagne color, with tons of silver shimmer. This has the most shine of any of the pigments I've owned.
Fortunately, I like shimmer, but those who don't should avoid this product.
The color just about matches my pinkish -ivory skin, so it should make a great highlighter.
I really don't know what else I'll use it for, so I probably won't go for a full size of this one. It's pretty, though.

NC45 African American. Lily White is just like it's name, and is simply gorgeous. It can be used as a brow bone color, but I use Naked Lunch or Vanilla for that. My favorite use is simply to pack it on my lid with the 213 brush and wear an invisible neutral on the upper portion of my eye. It's the Snow Girl look for dark girls. Love, love, love!!!!! Although it's discontinued, you might be able to find it in smaller markets.

Damn you, Lily White. Several have mentioned that this is fine for the young-skinned. I'm sixteen, everyone, and this is too much even for me to handle, and I am the queen of shimmery eye makeup. The reason for this? RIDICULOUS amount of fallout. I know how to apply it, but in the end, this just got all over everything. My kleenex. My cheeks. My boyfriend. Once it's there, however, it cannot be brushed away! I love that -- it won't stick where I put it, but it will stick everywhere else very well. Damn. The color's beautiful, but again, confusing: this looks like a medium pink with gold, a very rich and potentially non-light color on my NW20 skin. In reality, a shimmery slightly gold / slightly pink hardcore whitish glitter (there's no subtle sheen with this one, it's of very obvious texture). I got a generous sample for free at my MAC counter.

This is one of my all-time favorite pigments (I have about 8 now)...it is super duper shimmery so if you don't like the metallic look, you probably want to pass on this one. It applies a soft whitish/silver with a slight pink tone but I have a warm complexion and can wear this with no problem. Its super for highlighting the brow bone too and stays on all day.
