I love pigments and it’s no secret. Some people don’t like dealing with them and the mess but personally I don’t have much of a problem with it.
So not going to ramble on just going to get right to it.
Left to Right
Lumikki Cosmetics Spock: it’s a purple plum pigment with purple glitter in it. The picture doesn’t do it justice but it’s just so so gorgeous.
Lumikki Cosmetics Aegean Sea: this was a color that surprised me. I didn’t think I’d really love it as much as I do but it’s so pretty. It’s a baby blue and gold shimmer with hints of turquoise in it. The gold shimmer is extremely noticeable which is what makes it so unique. A lot of times it doesn’t photograph the way it looks on the eye but the swatch did good today because that’s very true to the color.
Lumikki Cosmetics Forbidden Love: I wasn’t going to include this because it’s similar to Spock since it’s in the same color family I guess. I couldn’t leave it out though because it truly is a favorite. It’s a mauve tone in my opinion with pink glitter. Looks so good over Laura Mercier Amethyst Caviar Stick. It’s softer than Spock but so unique and the pink glitter is so pretty.
MAC Naked: this is a cult favorite I guess but it’s a good basic pigment to have. If you aren’t sure about pigments I’d start with this one it’s not overly shimmery. It has subtle hints of glitter but it doesn’t have that foiled look like some can have.
MAC Copperized: this is my first pigment I ever got. Ive had it for sure over 5 years probably closer to 10. This is why I don’t ever buy full sized pigments unless that’s all they come in or it’s really really good priced because this will last me the rest of my life. It’s a golden olive. It has green undertones for sure I just used it in a look this week. It’s just a perfect olive color that can go with so many looks from neutral to bold.
Makeup Geek After Glow: the swatch is true but the color in the container looks dark. Their pigments are fantastic for starters and so affordable. It’s a neutral gold that’s very very shimmery. So it’s not super yellow it’s not pink tinged. It’s just perfect.
Scaredy Cat Cosmetics(SCC) Pheonix Tears: I bought this looking for a dupe for
MAC Melon. It’s a beautiful pale orange like a cantaloupe. I’ve used it all summer long. I wouldn’t say it’s coral I really would go with a pale orange like sherbert and what not.
SCC Poysenberry Pie: this was in my second order it is a pleasant surprise. It’s such a good vibrant purple. Not like the ones you see all the time that are bright but dark like royal purples and not dark like plums. Not pink like the fuschias out there either. It’s a true medium purple that is so glowy and universal.
SCC Rose Gold: this is a true told gold. It’s a bit darker than most out in the market that are like pale pink golds or pale corals. This being darker makes it perfect for smokey looks or over browns or peaches even.
So those are it. My genuine favorites that I want to use all the time and have to stop myself sometimes. Like I said don’t spend a ton of money on them if u can avoid it cause a little goes a long way. Try to find samples because they will last you a long time as well. Full sized like MAC sizes are almost impossible to use up. At the very least split them with friends.
