Bought this in Never Fade Jade. Was looking for a color like this its a very nice greenish blue color. I put this over top of the color tattoo cream shadow in Edgy Emerald, over that it lasted quite well (I can't say how it lasts over a normal primer or on it's own). I think I will buy some more colors, for the price it's pretty decent.
Okay, so silly me. I thought the color tattoos only came in cream shadows, even though it says pure pigments on the bottom. So imagine my surprise when I wound up with loose powder shadow in a very glittery gold hue (55 barely brazen) when I deep-sixed my bare minerals stuff years ago because it was just too messy. This stayed on well--unfortunately for me, since it is just too sparkly for me and therefore, I don't feel it is age-appropriate or flattering. Bummer.
I have this in black mystery, barely brazen, buff n tuff, downtown brown and breaking bronze. There is almost no pigmemtation in these if that makes any sense. I have to pile them on to get any color to show. Barely brazen doesn't even like to transfer from my brush to my eye. I was especially disappointed with black mystery. When I apply it it is patchy and blotchy and doesn't go on smooth. It comes off more dark gray than black and none of the iridescent particles show. Maybe the brighter shades have more pigmentation but I don't use bright shadow sooooo... I am just really put off by these since the name would suggest really great pigmentation. Bummed.
Bought the black one and Downtown Brown. First and worst, these pigments fade quickly and do not last. It is hard to get the product out of the shaker. That's two strikes and enough for me. Will not buy any others and will not repurchase.
These are pretty cool. Some shades are more pigmented than others. The problem with loose pigments is that they can make a mess. I have all the shades and my favorite is Downtown Brown.
I have one of these in Downtown Brown. I love the colour but it does fade easily, even with primer. I used Benefits primer the two times I wore this shadow, I will try UDPP next time. It doesn't seem to crease on my oily lids so that is a plus.
I'm very impressed with these pigments ! First true ones I've seen in drug store . Work best over the color tattoo creams to set and make even more intense and brilliant Or at least over a primed lid. Fun colors too! Can't wait for more....
I bought two of these, Buff & Tuff and Downtown Brown.
Packaging: Basic short sifter jar with screw on cap. When first opening these I had to wonder who came up with the idea to put stickers over the holes without adding a pull tab but aside from that, no complaints. They are loose so opening one of these after it's been jostled a bit can get messy.
Wear: Not bad, both shades faded shortly after lunch but I didn't use a primer or base.
Buff & Tuff: I would use this shade almost daily if it wasn't for the glitter. This is a beautiful nude (beige leaning toward taupe-y) with a satin finish and a ton of giant glitter. It's overwhelming and IMO, makes this lovely shade look cheap. Aside from the glitter, the product applies and blends nicely.
Downtown Brown: This is a shimmery brown-taupe, no glitter in this one thankfully. It reminds me of Fyrinnae's Snow Leopard, only lacking the depth that Snow Leopard has. I love the color but don't see myself wearing it that often since I own pressed and cream e/s that are similar but less shimmery. It does apply and blend very nicely and the pigmentation is better than I expected.
Price: $7 CAD
Colour: (Buff and Tuff) glittery midtonr taupe-beige
Pigm.: medium to opaque
I've been waiting for them ti jump on the pigment wagon and they didn't disappoint! Easy to apply and a thick creme base like NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha makes it shine
These are awesome little products. Pigmented powders in little jars, FROM THE DRUGSTORE. These are fantastic. Pigmented, finely milled, multi purpose, and not to mention wallet friendly. I currently have 6 of them and have been using them non stop as eyeshadows, mixed in with lip glosses, and nail polishes and even blush. They last a long time and pretty much never fade (when used on the eyes or as a nail color). The only down side (as with all pigments) is the jar-sifter packaging which can get messy. Otherwise, great product.
