MAC Pressed Pigment Day Gleam

Monday, 20 July 2015

 On my latest trip to MAC, I intended to buy only Strobe Cream but went home with one more item in my handbag (it happens to the best of us haha), it was one of their beautiful pressed pigments. I have been loving highlighting the center of my eyelid with glittery shade, and I don't have anything like this in my collection. I'm in love with sparkles. I never took interest in it before, I did not even know they existed! But my eyes laid eyes on them and here we are....

Day Gleam is described as High pearl powder in NC30 shade (Frost). On me, it looks like a light warm-leaning-to-neutral gold with heavy silver sparkles through it. The MAC pressed pigments are definitely for those of you who want that boom, sparkles look, as they certainly catch attention. These can be worn dry and wet. When dry, it looks more translucent, when used wet, you get that wet-looking eyes, almost metallic but still high in glitters. They are creamy in texture and if you use your brush wet, it will leave a mark on the pan. They are buildable but go on more on the sheer side at first. I prefer spraying my flat shader brush with MAC Fix+ before taking the product and then press it on my eyelids to get a fuller effect. On these pictures, the pressed pigment was used wet using MAC Fix+.

I really, really love this and I'm already ordering Make Up Geek's foiled eyeshadows... Looking for duochrome eyeshadows to buy! Any recommendation?
