This is a must product! Currently, I am using the 4th one. You do not need any other base shade for eyelids if you have vanilla, it does not matter what type of or what color make up you wear. It is light, shimmery( not too much) and enlightening the eye. It is very suitable for every day use and also great for night make up. You can use it alone with any shade of eyeliner and mascara, or with different shades of eye shadows. It can be used as a highlighter for eye brows bones or inner corner of the eyes. If you want a natural look use it dry, if you need more dramatic look use it wet. Great product and goes for long time.

After a bunch of reviews on this, I decided to give it a good go and I was happy that I did. The gold makes my cheekbones really stand out and highlights my facial structure which I like. Makes my eyes pop as well. I will be rebuying this.

I've seen Vanilla pigment a million and one times and always passed over it I swapped for a sample of it and now I'm practically kicking myself! :p It's a gorgeous, opalescent, multi dimensional, warm Vanilla shade...It's slightly shimmery and flashes pink on me Use this with your finger for application and it makes a huge difference. Beautiful color and versitile product. I love using this daily.

At first I wasn't too fond of the color...The second I actually applied it to my face (as per request from woman selling it at MAC) I was hooked!Great for mixing with just about anything. I was on the search for a highlighter to use everywhere and I have found it with Vanilla. It's a gorgeous pearl with gold and slight slight pink and yellow tones.

I mix a small amount of this product with my Shiseido concealer every day. This is very effective for dark circles! Concealer + brightener in one. Much better than Touche Eclat (which i became allergic to anyway). I also like for an inner eye highlight occasionally. (Hey, even pressed on top of lipstick/gloss doesn't look bad, if you like the Playboy look...) I only got to know of this from an old pixi2woo video. Tanya Burr did this amazing Jennifer Aniston look years ago, on her friend. You might like to try it too. The video has since been deleted, but basically she used this all over the lids with Sable eyeshadow for the crease, NARS Turks & Caicos + Benefit Hoola + Dior Amber Diamond for cheeks, and MAC shy girl for the lips. The perfect summer look. These colours work beautifully together, with the Vanilla pigment brightening the eyes in a way that other eyeshadows can't.The colour is unique--very much worth buying, although you don't get much product for the price.

I am obsessed with the MAC Vanilla Pigment! I don't know what I would do if they ever discontinue it because after two years of using it every day I have never come across another highlighter/eyeshadow that compares. The colour is absolutely gorgeous. In the pot it just looks like a shimmery white, but when it is applied it is a pearly white with almost gold and pink undertones. I use it as both an eyeshadow and a highlighter. It's great because when I say that I feel like you'd get the image of a really shimmery 1970's look, this is definitely not the case. When I use it as an eyeshadow I put one layer all over the lid, I usually the add more towards the corner of my eye so the colour is more intense. I usually couple it with a little gray/black in the outer corner of my eye to get a subtle smokey eye look. I always use black liquid eyeliner on top and it creates such a beautiful contrast against the vanilla.When I use it as a highlighter i use the smallest amount possible on a really soft powder brush and just lightly dust it over the top of my cheekbone, above my eyebrows and very lightly done the centre of my face - nose, cupids bow and chin. I also apply it with a tiny eyeshadow brush right under my eyebrows. Its not noticeable when you look at it after applying but when the sun shines on your face it looks absolutely stunning. And you'd never guess it was the same product I had on as eyeshadow.It lasts for such a long time because you really do just need the smallest amount, i always just use whats stuck to the inside of the lid, and not even all of that.

I've been searching years for the perfect eye highlight. Finally I found it! I'm an NC20 and Vanilla turns a pretty white gold (with extremely tiny hints of pink) colour on me. I use it on my inner corner and underneath my lash line, makes my eyes look so much bigger and brighter. Packaging can be a bit messy as there's no sieve but you get loads of product, this should last me a lifetime so well worth the money.

Finally got my hands on this after lemming it for years. They now have the travel size for $12 (CAD) and it's still an enormous amount of product so i jumped! It's everything I ever hoped for, the perfect highlight color. I use it on the inner corners of my eyes and anywhere else I would highlight. Love!

This is a major staple in my arsenal. Although it's extremely universal, I mainly use this mixed into my foundation during the winter months or when I am not tan (I am NC30 normally/sans tan). It gives the best glow to skin and is incredibly subtle - this just makes the skin look vibrant and healthy. I don't use this as a highlighter on its own bc I prefer more golden highlights, however, I imagine this would be a superb highlighter for paler shades. And for darker skintones I bet this would be a great brow-bone/under the brow shade. Don't be fooled or put off by how glittery this appears in the jar - it doesn't apply that way (provided one is not heavy handed with it). While it may seem expensive ($21.00), the amount you get will take YEARS to use up so its definitely a value for the price.

Okay, so I was a little hesitant to buy this product as at £17 ($26.50 USD), I found it a little pricey for just a nail varnish-sized pot of what appeared to be just glitter. But after seeing many people rave about this product for years I FINALLY decided to give it a go..I can honestly say this is one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE make up products. I am soooo obsessed with it!! Firstly, I've only used it a few times but have used it on top of a golden/bronze smokey eye look and it just added a gorgeous hint of sparkle to the matte shadows!! It has the smoothest application and has an almost satin finish. It can lightly be dusted on for a subtle touch or can be applied using a wet eyeshadow brush if you wanted a more glamorous and prominent shimmer effect, meaning this is product is perfect for both day and night wear. I wouldn't recommend using the pigment without a base as it is quite sheer and won't show up amazingly, although using a white eye primer or white shadow stick would work well if you wanted that sort of look.I also use this as a highlighter, and it does the most amazing job!!! As it worked so well on my lids I was unsure and a little wary as to whether the product would work as well as a highlighter - I didn't want to look glittery and as if the pigment had just dropped onto my cheeks from my eyes!! But no, I really couldn't be more wrong! I apply it to my cupids bow, brow bone and my chin, then just dab the smallest amount onto my cheeks and blend using my finger, then buff using a brush. I guess if you wanted a more solid application you could mix with a little body oil of some sort, whichever works best for you.Do not be put off by the glitteryness and whiteness of the bottle, it doesn't show up that colour when applied. It's almost clear with a sheer satin finish when applied, not glittery at all! This is a little obvious but as it is a pigment, it is extremely fine and powdery so just be careful when applying - a little goes a looooong way!! I can honestly see myself having this product for years as you get so much in such a small pot, and you only need the tiniest amount. What I love about it is that this particular pigment can go over any colour shadow, as it doesn't show up white at all but just just adds a shimmery effect to any colour.The ONLY (and I mean only!!) con I can think of to this product is the packaging. Overall I like the look of the packaging - as I said it's a nail varnish-sized glossy plastic pot with a matte finish lid, classing MAC.. sleek and sophisticated. The pot comes with a little plastic lid/protector inside the product, which is good as it stops the loose powdery pigment spilling out. Although, I find that this can sometimes be a little stiff, meaning once you pull it off with force the product will spill out everywhere, not what you want when you've spend £17 on such a small product! But this is being said, this is easily avoided by just being extra careful when opening the product. Like I said, I really am nit-picking here as the product is literally amazing!If you are at all hesitant about the MAC pigments in general, go for Vanilla! It was my first shade and it works SO well with so many different uses, I will 100% be buying more of them! You will not regret this purchase at all.
