Illamasqua Zeitgeist Pure Pigment

Pure Pigments are loose, colored powder that can be used alone or mixed with other products. I find they work best when used wet or with a mixing medium, but shades like Zeitgeist have a more matte base color, which allows it to adhere better without an additional product. However, when used dry, the intensity is lackluster; the shimmer stands out more, but the base black color gets a little lost. It looks sheer and almost chalky when it’s applied dry. I like it better over a primer–especially as a crease shade–and it darkens nicely.

Wet ‘n’ Wild We’re Blasting Off Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild We’re Blasting Off Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.17 oz.) is almost like a carton of Neopolitan ice cream. It’s a trio of pink, brown, and plummy brown.  It’s one of the best trios of the limited edition sets.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Enter a New Realm Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Enter a New Realm Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.17 oz.) is such a visually striking palette! It’s a very classic color combination (generally speaking), but it looks stunning. It’s silver, black, and red. And I really do mean red–it’s not a red masquerading as fuchsia or pinky-red or coppery-red. It looks candy apple red in the pan.

Urban Decay Shakedown Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Shakedown Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is actually no longer available, because Urban Decay has slowly but methodically discontinued their matte eyeshadows. I took these photos several months ago (ah, yes, the never-ending backlog!), and while it’s not conventionally available any more, it does still pop-up on retailers like HauteLook.
