Are you having a good Monday? I know, I know. "Good Monday" is an oxymoron. And to add insult to injury, it's even raining where I am. Well, at least the weekend was good! We went antiquing on Saturday and just had a cozy day yesterday. What did you do?
To cheer us up from the Monday thing, I'm introducing a new BSB feature called Five Days, Five Ways. It's going to run pediodically and give us a chance to look at one product used a few different ways. I am going to keep this to permanent products, rather than Limited Edition items (at least, I am most of the time). I thought that way we can have more of a chance to all play together!
Please let me know how you'd use the Five Days, Five Ways products when you see this feature. You're always welcome to submit your own looks, comments, or thoughts!
Without further ado...
MAC Melon Pigment
This Pigment is one of my favorites. In fact, it's on of my favorite products in the whole wide world. :) Since it's being repromoted in this week's Venomous Villains collection (it's part of the Dr. Facilier portion of the set), I thought it was place to start our Five Days, Five Ways series. Plus, if you buy it as part of the Villains collection, you get special packaging. Cool!
Pigments, for those of you not familiar with the product, are loose color powders that can be used in an astounding number of ways. Other companies make similar loose powder products, but the MAC brand calls theirs "Pigments". They're quite, well, pigmented. You can apply them to skin, hair, lips, mix them in lotion, make them into nail polishes, or a few other things. Of course, not all are eye-safe or lip-safe, so be sure to check the recommendations on the item before you get too creative!
Melon is a soft orange shade that makes me think of cantelope. MAC describes it as "bright golden peach". Below are some pictures and swatches of my Melon pigment, which is in the older style of packaging. The new jar is a bit more narrow and tall.
Stay tuned for the first look I came up with for Melon. It's on its way, soon. I'll link all of the Five Days, Five Ways for Melon to this post as they publish, so you may want to bookmark this if you're curious about this awesome Pigment!
