This morning's FOTD/EOTD features more Younique products...this time, their pigments. I wanted to play around with some greens and blues, so I picked Dignified and Empowered out of my samples, as well as a matte rust brown called Beautiful. Empowered is a very pale sea foam green with golden duochrome. Dignified is a rich turquoise, with sparks of green, blue and gold. I mixed these colors with NYX Sunset, a rich orange to burnt orange frost and the Blackout shade from the Urban Decay Naked 2 pallet.
The Younique pigments are very rich and, I know...shocker...PIGMENTED! They are very smooth, creamy, and a little goes a long way. I used the Dignified as a liner on the bottom by applying it wet, and it went on extremely smoothly and did not fall into the lines along my undereye. The mattes applied effortlessly, without any chalkiness or grabbing and pulling on the lid. I have been extremely impressed with how well the shadows blend together, to create that seamless transition between colors.
On top of how workable these pigments are, let me tell you a few more things about them:
- They are 100% Natural
- They are chemical free
- Mineral based
- They are free of talc oils, preservatives, perfumes, synthetic dyes and parabens
- No creasing, smudging or smearing!
At $10 a pop, these are going to last you a very long time, and are very versatile. I can't wait to create some more looks and share them with you!
