Hello My beauties I hope you are all well :)
Todays review is a long time coming and I could not wait to get this up and out there for you all to read. I think I have fallen in love not only with Makeup Revolutions eyeshadow palettes but now with their amazing Pure Pigments.
I know I know Pigments mean mess to some of you out there but oh my goodness this "mess" creates some beautiful looks :) :)
Some of you might not be familiar with pigments and are wondering what is the different in pigments and eyeshadows.
Well Pigments come in powder form instead of compressed like most eyeshadows. Pigments are also alot more pigmented because of the fact that they are not compressed. Some people find pigments very hard to work with because of the fact that they are dusty and can create a bit of a mess while using them both to your desk and of course to your face while applying them. I have to admit I have been staying clear of pigments because they can be messy but I also have to admit once you start using them you cant resist them.
Pigments can be multi tasking for instance you can use them as eyeshadows, you can use them on you face aka highlighters blush etc. You can use them on your lips to jazz up your lipsticks. You can also use them on your nails over your nail polishes. Another great thing about pigments is that they last a long long time.
So now that you get it and are more interested in them lets get started on showing you the shades as I have quite a few as you can see :) Oh and I have more ordered haha. There are 25 shades to choose from and to be honest for £1 each you are not breaking the bank with these little beauties
I have swatched all of these dry and also over glitter glue just to show you how amazingly pigmented these are :)
First up is :)
Supreme: This is absolutely stunning. A bright shimmery champagne near white shade perfect for using as a highlight everywhere. There is also a tough of gold going through this pigment. I adore this and highly recommend it :)
Indirect: This beautiful shade is almost like a duo chrome pigment. You will see alot of pink in it but also a tint of violet absolutely amazing I love using this on the lid as it makes my eyes look more wide awake. This has silver shimmer going through it love it
Cautious: I love this shade and find I reach for it on a regular basis especially for a day time look. This shade shocked me and you can actually get away with wearing only this on the lid. This to is a type of duo chrome shadow. When I first swatched this I thought it was a simple light coppery shade with silver & purple shimmers going through then when I blended it out there as also a touch of purple going through it. I would wear this by dabbing it on the lid and blending in the crease looking like I have two shades on instead of one :)
Allure: A light Purple with silver shimmer again perfect for a day time look and also perfect for anyone with hazel eyes :) This also has a hint of pink going it such a fun shade to play with
Virtuous: This is somewhat like Allure only a little deeper This also has a slight bronze undertone to it. Another fun shade to play with as the more you blend this shade the more bronze it looks :)
Etiquette: I am in love with this shade :) A Deep Copper Brown with silver and red shimmers. This is absolutely stunning for someone with hazel eyes :) I love it
Frenzy: Yes a crazy colour indeed but stunning all at the same time :) :) A stunning bright blue toned pink shade with silver shimmer :) This can be used to mix in with your gloss, can be used on the cheeks and even on the eyes love it :) :)
Angelic: Again I love this shade A Bright baby pink and one I have not got in my collection. A perfect shade :) :) I loe and adore this for the inner corners of my eyes especially when using pinks and purples on my eyes this also works as a great highlight for the cheek bones.
Grandeur: Awww my goodness do I really need to tell you that I love this shade too :) :) I am in heaven with all of them to be honest but anyway back to this shade A very deep copper with gold and red shimmers :) :) Beautiful Just Beautiful :)
Panic: A deep Charcoal with silver shimmer :) wow a little goes a long long way with this beauty :) A Perfect pigment for a deep smokey eye on a night out or even during the day :) :)
Flighty: A simple but pigmented shimmery blue toned silver :) another perfect shade for a smokey eyed look :) :) What I like about this shade in particular is that it is nearly as pigmented with no base as it is with a base :) :)
Vitality: This is a lighter silver shade compared to Flighty which is perfect if you are using silvers and charcoals and blacks for a going out look. I place this in the inner corner and it gives a great eye opening effect :) This is not too pigmented if used on its own but with a base its beautiful
Frolic: a Deeper pink than Angelic but lighter than Frenzy and this gives a frosty finish :) I love to mix this in with a clear gloss or simply on the lids with some different shades of purples :) Beautiful :)
So what do you think? Do you like what you see :) I bet you do :) I absolutely adore these and am having so much fun playing with these. I love the fact you can multi task with these. I do find sometimes its messy and this is why I always do my eyes before my foundation while using these. Very simple :) :)
Honestly for only £1 each how could you not have fun with these :)
Here is a look I created with Cautious on the lid I just love the effect :) The only other eyeshadow I used was a matte brown to blend into the crease and a matte cream for under the brow
I do not know how many times people asked me each time I wore this look what eyeshadows I was wearing and also will never forget their faces when I told them It was only a £1 eyeshadow :) :)
One question I know you will all ask is what I use as a base and at the moment I use the e.l.f Glitter glue which is brilliant (if you would like a full review on that let me know) or a simple cream eyeshadow base to help the pigment stick to my lid. As far as lasting power is concerned these guys are not going to let you down :) :) they last all day long and all night long no budging these babies once you use a good base :) :)
As you can tell I have nothing but great things to say about these and I really would like to hear from you what you think of pigments. Dont be afraid to try them it took me this long to take the step and now I can not get enough of them :) :)
Keep an eye out for the rest of the shade as soon as I get them I will be showing them off
I hope you enjoyed this review :)
Until Next time
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter
