Daiquiri

Anastasia Daiquiri Loose Pigment ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, pale pink (nearly white) base with a “cooler,” golden sheen. I expected a gold-shimmered pink that I’ve seen many times before, but it was much, much lighter and brighter than most pink-with-gold-shift shades are. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and blendable on my eyes and cheeks. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to opaque, though some of that depended on how much product was picked up and with what tool as loose powder is harder to pick up the same amount as you have to sprinkle it out. It was intensely metallic on my cheeks but didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on both cheeks and eyes.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.21 oz. - $104.76 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "finely milled" consistency that gives a "pearlescent metallic finish" that can be used on "eyes, face and body." It is intended to have buildable coverage from a "soft wash of color" to "intense color payoff." They are buildable, and as they're a loose product, pigmentation varies noticeably based on how much product is applied and with what brush; but it is as versatile as marketed--I was able to apply a sheer dusting as a highlighter on my cheekbones or pack it on as an opaque eyeshadow. I was able to get to opaque coverage with a dry brush, though a wet brush will stretch the product out a bit more and minimize the light fallout (when working with it as an eye product).

The powder was finely-milled, blendable, and easy to work with overall. The greater challenge was actually getting product out of the compact jar; there's a cool flip-top interior lid that prevents product from coming out of the six-hole sifter but there's no place to dump it except inside the lid (which then drops excess on top of the flip-top lid!), which is deep and narrow, or on a separate palette/plate. I dropped at least one while photographing/swatching/testing, so not having half a jar of pigment all over my house was a nice plus. I tried to remove the sifter/lid but wasn't able to feel it loosen and wasn't successful (I usually do this so I can photograph the actual powder)

The formula lasted seven to eight hours as an eyeshadow (no primer or base) and eight to nine hours as a cheek color (over bare skin).

Sand

Anastasia Sand Loose Pigment ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark, golden beige with warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-sheer to mostly opaque, which often was more or less pigmentation based on application method due to the loose format. I didn’t struggle to get full coverage on my eyes, like most expect from a good eyeshadow, and I was able to build up the coverage on my cheeks as a highlighter. The consistency was finely-milled, blendable, and easy to work with and had very minimal fallout (on the eyes). It wore well for eight and a half hours on cheeks and eyes before fading noticeably.

I think Daiquiri is my favorite because it’s such a unique color; like an apple blossom misted with gold dust. Thank you for reviewing these, Daiquiri is going in my shopping bag immediately! By the way, how do you feel about the flip-top seal as opposed to a rotating sifter or a press plate (like in Ciate’s marbled metals)? I’m trying to decide whether or not to do flip-tops on my own loose pigments as opposed to the sifters I’ve got now; I personally prefer the flip-top but I’m trying to keep my own preferences from guiding my product design. Thank you again for another great review!

…Other than what you mentioned in the overview, of course! I know a top or sifter can limit how you can use the product, especially if the lid is fairly narrow in diameter; but do you think the benefits outweigh the inconvenience, or would you rather rather use extra care with less secure packaging? It really boils down to preference in my opinion, but like I said I’m trying to be unbiased.

*I apologize for not making this one comment, I just wanted to be clear and my mind is a jumbled mess lol.

The issue I’ve had is more that the lid is pretty deep and narrow, so it can be hard to get much more than an eye brush in there… but it’s way, way better to fuss with that (or put it on the back of your hand, on a plate, etc.) than have it be super easy to knock over and spill half of it! For consumers, I think it’s better; for pros, it’d be annoying. Usually the sifter can pop out, so I was surprised that this one seemed quite stuck in there!

Nothing more annoying than loose product without a sifter – but that is coming from someone who 1) has to photograph (no sifter -> spillage, powdery bits everywhere), 2) is prone to knocking things over or dropping them!

As an add on to my other reply: even without a sifter, if the jar is narrow, it is still tough to get product (and not TOO much product) on larger brushes, and by keeping product in the lid or elsewhere, it is less of your brush going into the actual jar over time.

Daiquiri is like nothing else have, plus, it is seriously beautiful! I would love using this on my inner third of my mobile lid in a plummy-pinky type of look. Or with grass green shades, too!

I like both the shades and from reading the comments above by Andrew, excellent point you have there, I guess the kind of opening is important. Personally, I would not use these, but I do think that Anastasia has got the shades right.

Yeah – I was expecting something more like MAC Rose Pigment but lighter, but it’s quite cool-toned and almost white & pink.
