how do you wear the pigments? Do you wear it alone , or are you supposed to mix it with something? i see auctions on ebay about mixing liquids or something...?

I want to start collecting these! lol. but dang, $18 on the website, and on ebay they go for around $20! I can justify the regular shadows for $13. lol

Thanks Trish! I'll check out her auctions.

I wonder what all the colors are?! I don't really liek the glitter ones. That's the reason why I'm getting rid of my Bare Minerals samples because they're too glittery.

How long have pigmetns been around?

If you are trying to buy some, I have bought mine from Livejournal. People are always selling them there. Also, post on the Items for Sale forum or Swap forum. Maybe some here has some samples they can sell.

Its free to open up a Livejounal account. Once you do that, you can join the MAC communities. One of them is called mac_cosmetics and the other is macsalesswap.
The website is www.livejournal.com

If you need any help, let me know.

I just won an auction on ebay for a lot of 24 pigment samples! you get to choose the colors when you win. $38.00 + shipping isn't so bad. comes to about $1.50 each. The single samples go for about $200 + shipping on each one!

i'm trying to collect all of them. If there's any that I REALLY like, then I'll hunt down a full size jar of it. But samples should be good for now.

what do you wear under them? you know how you wear paints or ccb?

unless you have seriously oily lids, you wont need to wear anything under pigments because theyre really heavily pigmented and stay put all day. if you do have a creasing problem normally, a little primer or concealer is fine.
you can wear paints under them if youd like, but i wouldnt recommend CCBs. they make a weird paste with the pigment and make it slide all around and crease.

i usually wet my brush before applying any shadow or pigment for vibrancy and so it doesnt end up on my cheeks.
