Illamasqua Alluvium Pure Pigment
Illamasqua Alluvium Pure Pigment

Illamasqua Art of Darkness: Alluvium

Illamasqua Alluvium Pure Pigment ($24.00 for 0.04 oz.) is just like Ore: beyond gorgeous when you see it in person, but it just doesn’t photograph quite the same way. It’s a metallic medium-blue with a violet-blue tinge and flecks of multicolored shimmer.

I actually did a look with Ore on the lid and Alluvium in the crease, and it was such a lovely combo, but the photos make it look like garbage. I’ll have to see what I can do about the lighting situation and find a way to capture the brilliance of both of these shades in a photo. Hopefully it stays sunny for the rest of the week!

If these were a better value, I’d try making a nail polish with Alluvium–seems like it be a gorgeous shade for nails. (You can read my quantity/price ratio and packaging griping here.)

Product & Review FAQ

Where can I purchase Alluvium Pure Pigment? How much is it?

Sephora ($24) or Illamasqua (£15.00).

Is this permanent?

Yes, I believe so. I could not find anything on Illamasqua's site that indicated limited edition.

    It’s a beautiful color but I must say that after looking at the first photo, I was expecting that the color be way darker!

    Woah, that is not what I expected that to look like swatched.

    Speaking of using pigment to make nail polish, how do you do it? (I just bought my first MAC pigment a couple of weeks ago and was wondering how on earth to get through that jar.) I know you use clear polish but how do you advise mixing? Or getting the pigment in the bottle?

    It’s a shame Illamasqua pigments are such a lousy value. They’re pretty, but I just can’t bring myself to spend that much on so little product.
