MAC Sweetly Smoky Crushed Metallic Pigments

  I have 2 sets of parents so luckily I get to do Christmas twice.  My mum and stepdad are going to be in Florida for Christmas so we exchanged gifts yesterday.  I'll be doing Christmas on the 25th with my dad and step mom. I got quite a few beauty related items so I have lots of stuff to try and review on here.

  First up is this pigment set from the MAC Glamour Daze collection.  Isn't the packaging amazing?  My mum knows I love MAC so she went there with my picture in hand and had the S.A.s pick out stuff that would suit me.

MAC Guilty Passions: 4 Sweetly Smoky Crushed Metallic Pigments

  This set contains 4 pigments in various pink and purple shades.  They are extremely pigmented and could all be worn either together or alone.  The set is for $38.50 which is a pretty good price for 4 MAC eyeshadows.  These pigments are 3g each whereas regular pressed MAC eyeshadows are 1.5g so you're getting a lot more product.

L to R: Femininity, Dusty Desire, Prettified, Maribu
 The shades are:
Femininity: A bright medium pink.
Dusty Desire: A deep bluish purple.
Prettified: A pinkish brown.  This colour is a lot similar to MAC eyeshadow in Sable.
Maribu: A pinkish white.  It's a lot similar to Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin which I'm almost out of so I'm happy to get this shade.


  1. The packaging ... so beautiful!

    1. It's worth buying stuff from this collection for the packaging alone!
