Illamasqua Pure Pigments: Feverent, Static and Ore (Glitter lovers prepare...)


Every makeup lover is sure to have that one product that draws attention every time you wear it. Illamasqua's pure pigments are my new holy grail eyeshadow for going out, I even wear these in the day because I am so addicted to the finish! 
The packaging of the products is a little messy, however I have yet to come across a container that can hold a loose pigment without dispersing too much product, at least these pigments have a sifter, unlike the MAC ones.
The first shade I purchased was Feverent, a duo-chrome shade that can be compared to MAC blue brown pigment although Feverent is much more of a reddish tone. The product applies with full opacity giving a smooth red brown base with reflects of blue and green glitter. Every time I wear this with a smokey eye I am plagued with endless questions about the glittery wonder that is the pure pigment.

Completely and utterly in love with Feverent, I went out and purchased two more shades. Static is a white pigment that reflects lilac and pink in the light. I love using this pigment to hi-light my inner corner for an ethereal feel, and also this shade is amazing when layered over a black base to create a purple glitter smokey eye. With regards to application, I would stick to using these pigments dry as they tend to go a bit clumpy when wet.

The third and final shade in my collection is Ore, a stunning bronze gold with both gold and silver glitter particles. This has been my go-to lid colour since I bought it and reflects the light beautifully. All the pigments, as you can see from the swatches are very opaque and intense, much more than the MAC pigments I have tried previously. I find the lasting power to be faultless also with minimal fallout for such a glittery product.

At £16.50 these pigments are not cheap, but trust me when I say they are worth every penny!
