static pure pigment




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!

    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.

    That is totally fairy dust! Or crushed fairy wings, can't decide. 🙂
    Looks gorgeous on, very ice queen.

I must say, she was right about your photography skills 😀 I do love how you've captured the glitter and your eyes look stunning!.
