MAC Pigment Repackaging but Price Staying the Same! Say What?
So far, this is a rumor! Say it isn't so people!
In the grocery stores, companies cleverly downsize the quantity of food packaged while the price remains the same.
Ok, we get it, bad economy, profit margin, yada yada yada. We know that we would NEVER in a million years use up all the pigment we buy in the 7.5g jars of MAC pigment we purchase. That is why we share with friends. But I mean, come on people!
I'm a tiny bit mental because I like my containers to be the same size. CRAZY, I know!
I read this snippet on Temptalia's blog
"RE: New Pigment Packaging
Yes, indeed — it’s true, there is new packaging for pigments. I checked with MAC, and each pigment contains 4.5 grams. My information still lists the price being $19.50 (U.S.). I’m not completely certain if this is permanent going forward, but I believe it is. I have followed-up and asked if the price is indeed the same and the packaging is permanent. As soon as I have clarity on those, I’ll be sure to update. In the meanwhile, the OCD in me is crying."

Pigment is a highly concentrated loose colour powder that contains ingredients to help it adhere to the skin. Create a subtle wash of colour or an intense effect. Does not streak or cake. Easy to blend and long-lasting. Please note: Pigments are sold by weight not volume. Containers can appear to be less than full due to settling of the product.
