MAC Pigment Antique Green 

Pigments are like a mystery which are wrapped in a riddle and one just needs to constantly try exploring them .Sorry! I am getting little over enthusiastic here about pigments and now own sixteen  of these beauties .Yes! I got five more recently after showing you my ten pigment haul.This habit of buying things in lots is making me splurge like anything but I am not complaining 😉

About  MAC Antique Green pigment:-


First word which popped up into my mind when I swatched it was smoky.It’s a shade which smoky eye makeup lover will easily  fall for.It’s a combination of smoky black teal with bit of gold and is uber silky and smooth.In the bottle pigment looks grainy but I didn’t face any issues in blending it out albeit there was some fall out issue.Also, It looks much prettier on eyes and gives out that regal feeling  in comparison to the hand swatch.By the way don’t you think it looks like  rich  version of MAC humid eyeshadow ?

  •  Price – INR 1300 (I have heard it’s going to be INR 1450 soon)

Usually I trick to stick to few eyeshadow combination but this time I went little ahead and used 3-4 shades here 🙂
