MAC Cornflower Pigment: Review & Swatches!

Today's featured product is MAC's Cornflower pigment: a beautiful blue/violet duochrome. This is one of the most beautiful pigments I have ever seen, and if you like blues at all, this is definitely a must for your collection.


I've found that MAC pigments are some of the easiest to work with in the makeup world. They are much easier than mineral eyeshadow because they clump together, in a sense. As you can see below, the jar looks like a bunch of tiny clumps of pigment, rather than a fine sand consistency.


This is the pigment swatched dry. If you apply it wet, you will see an even more saturated color (however, I usually apply my pigments dry).



This is amazing even just along the lower lash line for a pop of color.

Do you like loose pigments? Or are they too much work?

  1. That is a beautiful blue! I've never worked with pigments before. I'm curious to try.

    Will you be doing a tutorial with this color?

  5. I actually own a couple pigments because they were in some collection and "i just had to have them..." you know ;)
    however, I find that they're way to much work and trouble. I might just be to clumsy for it, i don't know....

  7. I do find them a lot of work, but if I am in the right mood and with the right colour it is totally worth it. It gives such a different look and does look more intense.

  11. I love them and own quite a few.. but I must admit that I really don't mess with them too much because I haven't figured them all the way out. I need some lessons and practice.

  14. it's almost an exact dupe for the blue loreal hip pigment. the only difference is that i find in the light, mac's doesn't have as much of a purple duochrome in it like the loreal one does. i prefer the loreal one for that reason.

  16. there was a video (Products I regret Buying) that i loved your makeup in and you listed that you were wearing this pigment. can you do a tutorial on that look? I looked and a ton of people had asked for it! It seems like a simple look, but I just want to see how you actually did it.

  17. I love this pigment! I may have to buy it now... I love loose eyeshadows so much, and I don't think they're any more work at all... I don't know why people always complain about them.
