Review: Illamasqua’s Pure Pigment

Hi Glamifys,

I tried the pure pigment in Zeitgeist from illamasqua and it’s one more thing to disappoint me 😦

I hate to say this but so far, illamasqua has been not the best brand for me. Maybe it’s my skin type or whatever

Fundamental palette review


Molten metal review

Anyways, here goes.

Pure pigments come in loose powder form and are supposed to have better color payoff than regular shadows.






It’s a slight shimmer, almost black pigment and here is my take on it.

– color is patchy. You can see from the swatches that the color does not blend evenly.

– the packaging is not the greatest. The big hole in the middle just creates such a big mess.

Alternatively, poke a hole in the sticker that covers it and you will end up having more control

– for Singapore, the shipping is expensive unless you hit the minimum. The price is also double for is due to exchange rate

For that Amount, there are probably much better alternatives there in my opinion.

Better luck next time!

    These pigments are so beautiful, I currently own three shades: Static, Ore and Feverent, by far the best pigments I have tried, its a shame this shade didn’t work out for you 😦
