amazing
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented
These Pressed Pigments are just beautiful. they are super super sparkly. I use a small piece of toilet paper under my eye while I apply them to help with the glitter flaking in places I don't want. I also found that just using your finger really helps control that as well. If you want a super sparkle finish this shadow is for u!

Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant
I bought Smokey. It's a great blue/gray color. I have blue eyes and it's not to loud or manniquein looking. I use my duo fiber brush to apply and it's so pretty. I can amp it up with some fix+ and apply it wet. I'm hoping to get black grape and deeply dashing too! Not messy like regular pigments.

Amazing!
Tags +Crease resistant, making your eyelids gorgeous
When I first saw "Day Gleam" in the pot, I didn't think much of it. But when it's actually on your eye lids, wow. It's incredible! I truly get compliments on it every single time I wear it - even from strangers! I was told that it goes on much better if you use your finger, rather than a brush or other applicator - and it does work extremely well. I absolutely recommend this - just try it, it's awesome!

amazing product!
The glitter in this doesn't flake off at all it seemlessly lays down beautifully very shinny but not glittery. anyhow i have black grape and dashingly and love them both. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes high shine w/ out glitter fallout. I apply mine w/ a damp brush for maximum pigmentation and like it this way.

Shatters easily
I like the product and the colors, but it slid off my counter once and shattered. Shimmering mess everywhere! It must be a lot softer than the other eyeshadows because I couldn't even pick up the pieces without it crumbling more.

I purchased this eye shadow in black grape, and it is beautiful! It stands out and is very shimmery. I love this color! I will definitely be purchasing more colors of this pressed pigment eye shadow. It blends well with other Mac eye shadows. I just love the color!

Must use with Fix+
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant, eyes; highlighting
LOVE IT! Have only used Light Touch but I fell in love with it instantly BUT I was instructed by a MAC artist to spray Fix+ on the brush first. It makes a big difference! I also use Paint Pots first. The finish is super shimmery without looking like a bunch of cheap glitter.

I got Pink pepper from maccosmetics.com and Midnight at Mac counter. I think Mac pressed pigments are amazing. I use them over a paint pot. They have amazing pigmentation. It makes your eyes look like a diva. Looking forward to get other shades too.

Love these! Soft and flattering shimmer and color
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant
I got Damson, Midnight, Pink Pepper and Summer Honey. I love them all!
Some bloggers I read gave mixed reviews....saying they aren't pigmented enough. They are pigmented! But you can also easily sheer them out for a nice soft wash of color and glisten...which is what I prefer. Too much pigment makes me look cheap and overly made up. These are perfect. Did I see fallout? Not much...but I'm also not careful...so I tend to be less meticulous with application. And they're easy...for me ....to apply. Love these!

I love my pressed pigment! I don't think it goes on glittery, but more of a shimmer. I like using it a lot with my eyeliner. I own Beaming, I've tried the colored pressed pigments in the store but I think they all look the same on me. Although for the first time, a lady had the blue one on & it looked very pretty. If you want color, just use a regular eyeshadow in the crease.

Pressed Pigments! BEST!
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Crease resistant, dramatic~ & soft metallics!
I bought some of these and my FAV is "Enlightening". I get so many compliments! Both using it dry & then I use paint pot silver for base. I am going to try mixing med or Fix+ to apply wet now. I had no idea! WOW!
These are well worth it! I have a whole 4 layer case full of loose pigments & these pressed ones are so great! Wish they would add some more bold colors! Like I just saw on Temptella's site the "Midnight" blue & "black Grape" or "Damson" which I really NEED to find! LOVE LOVE these & recommend to everyone!

LOVE this product
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Crease resistant
I have been using MAC since the early '90s and I am very excited about these pressed pigments. I have Blond Streak, Light Touch, Day Gleam. They're incredible, especially with the #239 slightly (!) dampened with Mixing Medium (water-based version). It glides on and the payoff is spectacular. I'm not sure where the negative reviews are coming from. Enjoy! Loving mine.

so-so
I expected a lot more from this product, I got 2 of them & they were both pretty disappointing. I barely ever reach for them which is sad bc they were pretty expensive. The colors are beautiful but they have very low payoff & a lot of fall out. Would not buy again probably, love everything from MAC except this.
