MAC Pigment Recap

I wanted to make my MAC pigment swatches easier to find/browse, so I’m combining them into a recap. As more pigment swatches are added, I’ll continue to revise this post, but there have been a LOT of pigments, and I may never be able to swatch them all. I had been working on a chart of every pigment ever released, in which collection, which were permanent, etc. — but Specktra beat me to it and did an amazing job.
If you have any questions about the differences between shades, I strongly recommend revisiting my original posts for each of these pictures. Pigments can be quite subtle, and I tried to note those details there.

MAC’s pigment jars are $19.50 each, but there are a variety of websites that sell samples.

    >OMG this is such a fabulous reference! I remember, a long time ago (ha ha), when playing around on Makeup Alley and wanting to find swatches MAC piggies to try, it was soooooo hard to find a place that catered to just what you do!

    A million times thank you for these fab photos and references. Reminds me of what I adore about MAC pigments. Where else,really, can you get this kind of effect?
