Platinum and Dark Purple Eyes



For me, silver is a bit like dark green or teal. I just don't wear it. I do though, love silver. It's a beautiful color. After having MAC's Platinum pigment for months now, I decided that I should actually step out of my safe little box and give it a try. Using my own advice (pairing colors you don't like with others that you do) I was able to make the pigment work for me and I loved it.

For those of you thinking of getting your hands on Platinum pigment as well, be warned, it is the messiest pigment ever. Gorgeous...but messy. Upon opening the jar, pigment tends to go airborne so be careful...and 99% of the time, you'll get pigment on your hands just from opening the jar. On the plus side, very VERY little goes a long way.

  1. I love the silver. I don't wear it either, because I always feel like it washes me out. Have a great Halloween weekend! Kori xoxo
