Illamasqua – Pure Pigment (£17.00/1.3g)
What Illamasqua says:
Made to be played with. A metallic, high-shine, pure-colour powder that highlights eyes, cheeks and brows. Mix with eye shadow, blusher or use it on its own to intense effect. Bring out your bold side.
Pure Pigment can be applied dry or wet for a bolder colour pay-off. To intensify the colour, apply over a cream texture, as this will hold the colour in place and amplify it. Alternatively mix with Sealing Gel and apply using a fine brush for a shimmering liquid eye liner. When applied with a long bristle brush, Pure Pigment can also be used as a highlighter anywhere on the eyes, face and body.
What I say:
Lovely colours, my personal favourite is Static as it is very versatile. The white base has some blue and pinkish sheen to it. Great eyeshadow to highlight the inner corner of the eye or get some duo-chrome effects on top of other darker eyeshadows. As with most loose eyeshadows you will have to watch out for fallout. Besides that they are easy to apply. They would also be suitable as eyeliners when applied with a mixing medium. You can find some great swatches over at Variolavera.
