You’re not going to believe this, but I’ve never personally owned a single jar of MAC pigment before. That statement alone might have me extricated out of the beauty community, and I know I might get a few emails asking me “How could you?!?” from MAC fanatics. It’s not that I dislike them at all so hold your fire! Honestly, I have SO many products that I just haven’t broken down and gotten on the bus… until now.
MAC’s collection of Little Darlings were the perfect opportunity to finally see what all the fuss is about since they feature sets of promo-sized essentials that even the most avid pigment enthusiast would appreciate. I’ve finally had the experience *cue the angels* and I’m glad that I did. For $29.50 each, you receive either 5 cool-toned pigments/glitter, or 5 warm-toned pigments/glitter. The packaging is simple, yet festively adorable and makes them the perfect stocking stuffer or holiday gift for your gal pal. I love the glossy red circular box!
The warm collection includes Gold Dusk, Gold Mode, Melon, Gold Stroke, and Reflects Antique Gold. I’m in love with Melon (as I’m sure everyone else is) and the Reflects Antique Gold glitter is so fun! I think out of the two collections, the warm was the most complimentary configuration of shades.
The cool collection includes Frost, Quietly, Pinked Mauve, Reflects Blackened Red, and Teal. Normally, cool tones tend to look better on my eyes and I was surprised that I didn’t much care for these colors. The Pinked Mauve is a great color for me, and the others were just okay. I’m not sorry that I have these because there are so many uses for pigments than just shadows.
All in all, MAC’s Little Darlings Pigment Collections are a wonderful addition to my cosmetics addiction without breaking the bank. I could never possibly deplete a regular sized jar so these sizes are perfect at 2.5 grams by weight. Look for the Little Darlings in Lipglass/Dazzleglass packages and Softsparkle/Eye Pencils. So cute!
