Small MAC Pigment Haul + Bright Lip Mix of the Day

Every paycheck I get really excited when more money is in my bank then it suddenly slips away from all the shopping. The MF (manfriend) thinks I have a major problem, and I'm starting to believe that I really do :p Is anyone else in this situation? Anyway, to satisfy my spending problem I recently made 4 online purchases (3 make-up & 1 clothing). The first package came today and it was my small haul of sample MAC & Ben Nye pigments! :)
I purchased 5 MAC & 2 Ben Nye pigment samples. Samples are usually a great way to try different products, especially pigments since a full jar goes around $20. The site that I purchased these samples from are $3.99 each, and according to their website "1/4 teaspoon of authentic MAC pigment in clear, screw-top jar with printed label."
It doesn't look like much but you only need a dab from the brush for every eyeshadow application. The colors are extremely vibrant and can be applied either wet or dry. If you're a little bit vexed by the meaning of "wet," it is the term called "foiling" where you wet your brush first with a mixing medium (water/ MAC fix +/ eyedrops) before you touch the eyeshadow. It allows your eyeshadows to be much more pigmented and vibrant.
