I bought nº 5, 31, Iris, Grape, Emerald and Aqua. Aqua and Emerald are great, shimmery and what you expect pigments to be.
Nº 31 is a nice dark purple-maroon good for the V. But I am deceived with quality and colour pay off for nº 5 (pink gold) and Iris, colour does not stay long (even with shadow insurance) and are not shimmery. So I guess the quality depends on the colour you choose. It …

I bought this years ago at a little no-name beauty supply store. At the time I thought it was a bit of a splurge (I think it was something like $6) since I wasn't familiar with the brand, and most of my cosmetics came from the clearance section at the drugstore, but I'd been searching for this type of blue for ages. The color payoff, especially when applied with a wet Q-tip, brush, or …Read more

First let me begin my review by saying that La Femme Cosmetics manufactures all of the sparkle/loose dusts, most of the cheek disc colors and some of the eyeshadows including the color discs, ultra pearl products sold by Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics. What I find so appalling by this fact is that Napoleon Perdis doesn't even bother to repackage the La Femme Cosmetics products they sell as their …Read more

If I can't afford Mac, gimme some La Femme! If more colors were available, they would probably be my favorite loose pigments brand.
Gosh- they've fined- milled the *Heck* out of these. Simply beautiful and great quality. Love them!!

This is for #31 Black Orchid. There really should be a separate category for this but there isn't, so here it goes in the generic pile.

Black Orchid sparkle dust (#31) is, on the eye (wet is best, dry is fine) what MAC Beauty Marked looks like in the pan and should be like.

It's so pretty. a blackened maroon very finely milled sparkle pigment. it's easily …

I have #10 magenta, which is like a floury version of MAC's Pink Pearl pigment, down to its duotone nature. The eye shadow does migrate, but I haven't had any problems with (technicolor) panda eyes, or much creasing (although I always use a base under it). They retail for about $5 (I got mine for $4.25), and come in a huge pot. The only downside is that the pots have no sifters, so if …Read more

I currently own 4 of these Sparkle Dusts. (#5 Opal, #1 Gold, #28 Blue, and #9 Golden Sunset)
<br>
The quality is great. These products are actually exactly the same as Napoleon Perdis loose eyeshadows (I also have a Napoleon Perdis loose eyeshadow in Sand Beige)and it has exactly the same consistency and color payoff. It's very fine and adds that great extra shimmer to the …

These sparkle dusts are good quality pigments, i will buy again only because they are pretty cheap.

the only bad thing besides the packaging is that you do have a lot of fall out on your face and especially your cheeks so make sure you don't put on your foundation first!

I have all the colors except matte black. These are very pigmented and apply smooth (are finely milled). As the name suggests, these are shimmery-- too shimmery for my taste so I don't think I'll be repurchasing. Packaging can be improved. Caps can be loose so when jars flip over, most likely, product leaks through and get all over your hands when you open it (arghh messiness T_T) …Read more

i have #30Wine and #15Bronze.
the wine is very pretty on brown eyed redheads,but the bronze is more like orange-copper! not the color i was expecting. ill prob. be putting some of this up for swap later. it creases badly after a short time wearing it dry,but i have discovered if you put it on wet it looks amazing and stays better. very hard to blend though.
ill give this stuff another …
