CHEEK: MAC Magenta Madness Isn't All That Mad

     If you follow me on my blog, you'll know that I am a big fan of applying pigments as blush. Some pigments are gorgeous and I can't resist putting it on my cheeks! Today, I'll be showing you Magenta Madness - my favorite pigment.
    The color is washed out, it is much brighter and vivid in reality. It is a shocking bright fuchsia-magenta, that is completely shimmer free and matte. I know the texture looks powdery, and while it is, it applies so nicely onto the skin. I use the MAC 116 to tap some product on the lid, you only need a minuscule amount to get the impact of the color. 
     I layer this on top of cream products as well as powder products. It easily blends with other shades of pigment as well (I've mixed this and Neo Orange together before). The staying power is also impressive, it lasts all day and does not budge. I don't have noticeable pores on my cheeks, so I can't say whether or not this will enhance pores. I'm sure a primer or base will prevent this. I love experimenting with cheek colors, so if you have a pigment that you aren't too crazy about, try it on your cheeks! You'll be pleasantly surprised =D. 
P.S. If you haven't seen HP - DH Part 1, you're missing out on something epic. Minus the random semi-unnecessary scenes. 
P.S.S. If you haven't heard, NK and SK are fiddling together. If I say anymore, I'll just make myself look like an ignorant loser. I'll keep my opinions to myself...
Product: MAC Pigment - $23.50CAN 


  1. happy you like this because i just bought it <3 does it make your eyes sensitive at all?

  2. @Katie - Unfortunately, I do not wear eyeshadow or pigment on my eyes! The most I do is mascara 98% of the time. I am not knowledgeable about which pigments are eye safe, but I'm sure if you Google this, you will find more reliable answers than I! =D.
