Hope you all are doing great! I am back with a product from MAC, which I have been using for the past eight months. We all know the importance of a golden eyeshadow with our ethnic and bridal wear. I have three gold eye pigments, but when it comes to quality, nothing can beat MAC. So, I’m reviewing this versatile pigment called Melon today. Read on to find out more about the product.
Price: $22 for 4.5 g
A highly concentrated loose colour powder that contains ingredients to help it adhere to the skin. Create a subtle wash of colour or an intense effect. Does not streak or cake. Easy to blend and long-lasting. Please note: Pigments are sold by weight, not volume. Containers can appear to be less than full due to settling of the product.
Apply Pigment with either a dry or wet brush depending on desired effect.
My Experience with MAC Pigment Melon:
The pigment comes packaged in a lightweight plastic jar that reflects the colour of the pigment. The little jar has so much of the pigment that it seems as full as new even though I have been using the product for months now.
In quest of a golden pigment with a subtle finish, I found this amazing golden-peach pigment; it has no glitter particles but gives a soft sheen that complements all my ethnic outfits. It’s a strong golden colour with a slight touch of peach. The texture is very lightweight and never feels heavy on the lids. It falls out a bit during application, so I find it better to do my eye makeup first.
This pigment is suitable for parties or weddings and not for everyday makeup looks. The glittery and metallic nature of the pigment will definitely make your eyes stand out. It blends in easily and you do not need to use a lot. So, this quantity is going to last for years. It’s a very versatile product; I sometimes use it as an eyeliner.
Being a powder product, it tends to fall during application, but I don’t notice any unevenness or creasing. This peachy gold colour works great as a highlighter, too. Just mix it with Inglot Duraline and swatch it on the high points of the face for a gorgeous golden glow. I never use pigments with water, because I feel the pigments lose their intensity and texture quality when mixed with water.
Personally, I think this can work for a majority of Indian skin tones and will suit most of the Indian attires. The staying power is very impressive as it lasts until removed. Overall, there is no major glitch with this product.
Pros of MAC Pigment Melon:
• Amazing texture – very soft and easy to blend
• Strong and lightweight packaging
• Stays the entire day without creasing
• Great product for professional use too
• Imparts a wonderful glow as a highlighter
• Stays for 9 plus hours
• The quantity provided is worth the price
Cons of MAC Pigment Melon:
• Fallout issue, which is natural
IMBB Rating: 4.8/5
Would I Recommend/Repurchase MAC Pigment Melon?
I don’t think I’ll be able to finish this jar to buy a new one. 😛 I really recommend this product. This multi-use product is great value for money. Imagine, you get a golden eyeshadow, highlighter and an eyeliner in a single product. So, why not splurge on this amazing product!
