MAC Pigment Samples


Have you ever wondered where you can get MAC Pigment Samples? Or you don't want to spend $20 on a container of pigment that you'll never be able to use up?

MAC Pigment Samples can be found online from people who buy the full size jars, and then put 1/4-1/2 tsp of product in smaller jars. This is a great way to save money and also to try out many colours at once.

My two favourite online stores to purchase MAC Pigment Samples are The Beauty Sampler and Makeup Geek's Store. MAC Pigment Samples are about $2.50-$4.00 each depending on which pigment you choose. It might seem like a lot but these samples are enough to keep you going for quite a while.

Pigments are in loose powder form and you only need a tiny bit to cover your eye. They are best applied over a primer so they have something to adhere/stick to. They blend really nicely and come in a large range of colours. Both of the stores I mentioned also sell different brands of pigments, and they are most often cheaper than the MAC ones (like Sugarpill and Ben Nye).

Here are some of the pigments samples that I've purchased in the past (all MAC):

You can see from the above photos that these samples come with quite a bit of pigment, and the actual pigment swatches very well.
