Review: Magnolia Makeup Individual Pigments

Review: Magnolia Makeup Individual Pigments

posted on: 11.16.2012

At The Makeup Show Orlando, the Magnolia Makeup booth was situated right next to the Cult Nails booth. Since I spent a lot of time at the Cult Nails booth, the beautiful glittery colors from Magnolia Makeup were practically screaming to me. On the last day of the show, I finally succumbed to the screaming glitters and the fabulous women who sold them, and purchased five of them. Unfortunately, a lot of the ones that I really wanted were sold out, but the silver lining was that since I came after a certain time on the last day of the show, all pigments were only $5. Now, you all know how much I can't resist a good deal. I had to do everything in my power not to start hoarding pigments, so I think I did pretty good for myself. I only came out with five!

Out of the five colors I picked out, only four of them came with labels on them. So one of the colors I have is basically nameless, and I have no idea what it is called. I even went on the website to try and figure out the name of it, but it is too difficult to tell. So I shall hereby name is the Nameless Blue. Let's get on with descriptions!
  • Plumes- a light green color with a golden sheen
  • Crescent- a dark blue with turquoise sparkle
  • Sugar Cane- a super sparkling beige
  • Second Line- a deep purple base with lilac pink shimmer
  • Nameless Blue- a true blue base with a lot of sparkle

 Each of these shades retail for $10 for 3 grams of product. These are so sparkly! I had a really hard time deciding which shades to pick because they were all crazy sparkly. The color payoff is pretty great, too. In the swatches below, I applied them both dry and wet. When they're dry, you can really see the glitter in the shades. When wet, these colors pick up a real metallic vibe, and are good if you want extreme opacity when applying. However, I will warn you: when applied wet, I did have issues with these colors staining the skin. I didn't use a primer though, so that may be why they stained. But that is definitely something to take into consideration.

I know for a fact that I will be reaching for Sugar Cane regularly, because it is a beautiful neutral shade with this amazing sparkle that really can glam up a boring look. The other four shades will be reserved for when I'm feeling extra spicy, and am in the mood for some color. But I can't wait to wear them out, that's for sure!

If you're up for spending $10 a shade for glitters and pigments, then you should definitely give Magnolia Makeup a look. You can purchase their colors on their website.
