Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Static, £15.50

If you could capture fairy dust, put it in a pot and marvel at its magnificence, I am pretty sure it would look something like this. This stunning iridescent pure pigment from Illamasqua is simply beautiful, perfect for adding a metallic shine to an eyeshadow as well as highlighting brows and cheekbones. In the pot it appears quite tame, but as you begin to swirl the silvery white dust, glimmers of lilac and flashes of pink and blue begin to appear. It becomes a mirage of dancing sparkles. This pigment works best when pressed into a cream base or applied wet for an intense finish.  It definitely requires a base colour to realise its true potential, and be prepared for fall out...lots of fall out!

With quite a dramatic eye, I kept the rest of my makeup simple and natural, and let the glitter take the glory!

Oh I love iridescent sparkle. Genuinely very little makes me as happy. This looks lovely. I have urban decay's kitty glitter in the same colour, they last forever!

Raffles Bizarre said...

Fairy dust is definately the right way to describe it! I was dubious at first because it's not very pigmented..for a pigment...if that makes sense? However it looks gorgeous on!! Works really well with the shade you have underneath and gorgeous against your skin tone.

Ohhhhh that looks gorgeous! I saw your link on sprinkle of glitter's blog and followed it to this post! I must say, she was right about your photography skills :D I do love how you've captured the glitter and your eyes look stunning!. I wasn't sure if the product was loose or compact of creme based but, I see now... I'll be adding this to my wants/and must try list and look out for it at the sephora over here..... I do hope we've got it :/ Thanks for sharing!
