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!
