Being a MAC fan can be expensive, but when you want that high color payoff and blendable pigment, cheaper alternatives simply don't cut it. Luckily, there is a place on the net where you can buy cheap MAC pigment eyeshadows that us makeup junkies just can't get enough of. Girl Meets Makeup sells MAC pigment samples (1/4 teaspoon) for only $2.90 each. Before you start thinking of 1/4 teaspoon as a small amount, try to remember the last time you bought a pigment and how long it lasted. I bet you still have pigments from years back. They practically last forever. When you buy samples, you can get a wide variety of colors that you may not use all the time, but are great for nights out, special occasions, or to just switch up your look.
I suggest getting the Lot of 20 pigments (you choose all the colors and it comes with a Pro Mixing Medium!) for $50, or if you don't want to go all out, get the lot of 10 for $26. You can always buy them individually, but getting a Lot of pigments is better if you want to save even more money! If you're a fan of Mac Pro products, there are plenty of pro pigments to choose from on the site. Happy shopping!
