MAC Face and Body Pressed Pigment Swatches and Review

The MAC Face a Body collection includes pressed pigments highlighters I was rather excited when I first saw that, as I love using pigments, but I hate dealing with loose powder. I was pretty happy recently to try the L’Oreal infallible shadows, which remind me quite a bit of a pressed pigment. So, I thought MAC’s version would be the same or better.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. The MAC pressed pigments are OK, I don’t hate them or anything, but I would hardly call them a pressed pigment. The first ingredient on the label is talc, which told me right off not to expect a true pigment. Indeed, that turned out to be the case. The items wear pretty much like a standard shadow. Yes, the pigment is still good, but it wasn’t quite to the level that I expected. Perhaps talc as the top ingredient was because they are meant as highlighters? I don’t know.

Anyway, I got two shades for review, so here they are in the shades warming heart and beaming.

  1. Not a huge fan of talc either. Even though talc’s technically a mineral, I don’t consider talc much of a pigment, but a filler. At least the colors don’t look totally blah.

  2. I see it as a filler too and an unnecessary one other than to try to cut costs, which I would expect better than that from MAC.
