MAC Summer Stash Crushed Metallic Pigment Stack

Crushed Metal pigments are are part of upcoming Collection by MAC – Surf Baby. These are a stack of metallic pigments. They  are high shine pigments, which give almost a foiled effect on lids when applied with a wet brush. I have used the lighter shade in the inner corner of my lids in my eye makeup look HERE 

Summer-stash pigments

The lighter shade comes out as silvery champagne with very high metallic finish. Looks beautiful as a inner corner highlighter. Totally makes your eyes look awake.

light white pearl

This one is a light coppery color with high silver frost. (Don’t get confused by the color in jar and swatch. The colors in more concentrated form in jar so are looking darker than how they apply in actual)

 Like and Dislikes :

  • Very very strongly pigmented and if you like to play with high shine colors, these are nice.
  • Can be used for various things- for eye makeup, for highlighting the face, body. I am planning to make nail paint out of one of them, let’s see how it goes. 🙂
  • These can be used both wet and dry. However I personally found them a little messy to work with when used dry because these pigments are so closely packed that a teeny bit of color gives such a chunky finish. And these tend to fly so it gets difficult to remove the fall out especially if you have done your face makeup already. When applied wet, they work just fine.
  • These go on evenly both wet and dry.
  • Very long lasting. The shine is maintained for good 4-5 hours and they don’t tend to disappear until your remove them.
  • You have to be careful working with these. I pick up color only from the lid and that does the job. You can easily go overboard with these.
  • Come in easy to carry stackable jars.
Overall I feel that these are not everyone’s cup of tea. Great for parties and evening outs because just a teeny bit of this would add oomph to your look. A very good stuff for makeup artists as well.

    1. Aruna, you can use these on cupid’s bow or may be just on the center of the lower lip. it gives the illusion of fuller lips. 🙂 and for cheeks they look really nice as highlighters when applied on top part of the cheekbones. 🙂

  1. these would be great highlighters! I agree with you..def not everyone’s cup of tea, need to be extremely careful or else would end up looking like disco ball :stars:
    I loved the way u used it as a highlghter in your tutorial..really open’s up the eye :thumbsup:

  2. Looks delicious Rati :toothygrin:
    I dont think I would ever try these (just because i am not sure if i could ever get it right) but I love reading and enjoying the pictures that you post.
    It reminds me of Bournvita :toothygrin: As a kid I used to eat bournvita (as is) in a small cup…these jars reminded me of that

  3. Hi Rati,
    These look good, but as u say its not for everyone (read novices like me 🙂 )

    U know, I never bought anything from MAC. I got tempted by TBS Body Butter duo n bought that n then went on n did a TBS haul..

    Now I have no money for MAC 😐 😐

  4. Rati………I had read somewhere that these type of pigments can be used in the middle of lips over the lipstick….to give them high shine….would you recommend these…..just asking for general knowledge O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:)

  5. The shades are very pretty Rati….not over the top…..that would make us go…ouch :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle:

  6. hawww u threw some of the pigment from the dibbi….for fotografy sake.. :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble:
    but it looks awesome.. ekdum magazine pics type.. how they show all cut and crushed lippies and shadows 😀 😀 😀

      1. 😐 😐 😐 😐 omg u send dat lippie to me.. i will use it smbhalke without crushing!! 😉 😉 😉
        meanwhile u can use some vogue ka pic directly here instead :secret2: :secret2: :secret2:

  7. though i stay away from frost finishes else where on my face… i jut love it on my eyes… it gives sucha pop to my jet black eyes ;p

      1. nahin i am not using separate lenses neha. same camera wala lens. bt i plan to buy some lenses soon. :))

        haan these frosty shades look lovely on the inner corners. i tried all over the lid also to see how they work bt i guess these are best bet for highlighting;. 🙂

        1. hahaha somehow i like em all over lids… 😐 😐 😐 actualy not all over.. just above lashline area.. much below the crease…

  8. I am very bad in makeup since have not used it all these years 😛 this looks so good
    Rati, some time when you get free plz do a tutorial on different ways of using the pigments :))
