Mac Pigments Samples Where I get them...

In early January I was looking online for places I could buy authentic Mac pigment samples as most Mac stores do not give them out anymore and I found buying the full size a waste as it takes maybe 10 years of constant use to finish it!

In my search I came across a site called The Body Needs which sells all kinds of name brand samples such as Mac, Too Faced, Chanel and Urban Decay. I searched their Mac pigments and noticed it was only $1.79 US per 1/4tsp sample. After doing some research and reading some reviews online about this site I decided to place an order.

Items Ordered: Price: Status:

  • 1 of : Golden Lemon
  • $1.79 Shipped

  • 1 of : Pink Bronze
  • $1.79 Shipped

  • 1 of : Teal
  • $1.79 Shipped

  • 1 of : Violet
  • $1.79 Shipped

  • 1 of : White Gold
  • $1.79 Shipped

    Cost Breakdown:
    Product Subtotal: $8.95
    Tax: $0.00
    Shipping & Handling: $5.95
    Grand Total: $14.90

    I was able to pay via Paypal which I loved since I had some funds sitting there waiting to be spent :)

    I placed my order Jan 5th, got and email Jan 9th saying it was shipped and I received my goods Jan 19th which isn't too bad considering it had to cross borders.

    The colors I ordered were Pink Bronze, Violet, Teal, Golden Lemon & White Gold.



    I was a little afraid that 1/4tsp wouldn't get me much product but was pleasantly surprised when I opened the jar to find quite a bit of pigment. Well worth my $1.79 in my opinion as it will probably last a very long time.



    Here are the swatches. Very vibrant colors that I cant wait to use!



    If you like Mac's pigments but don't want to purchase full bottles I suggest you take a look at The Body Needs. The price is unbeatable, the ordering process was smooth and you will be able to try out several pigment shades for the price of one full priced jar!

    What are your favorite pigment or glitter shades??

    Great colours, Farah.

    A youtuber got pigments from The Beauty Sampler. Looks like they always have a 20% off code, which works out quite cheap. I never shopped there, but thought maybe you can research more.

    Don't you hate that you spent more than half of the total purchase for shipping :(

    Thank you all for your reviews on this website!!! Saw it earlier in the week but was hesitant about purchasing for the fear of fake Mac products. I used to purchase my samples on ebay several years ago but prices have sky rocketed and there are also more fakes sold. I still have my samples and they have lasted me many years.
