Welcome to Blogmas Day 18! Time goes by so fast this December… wow. Just a week before Christmas, yay! In my review of the PS… x9 eyeshadow palettes, the Huda Beauty Obsession palettes dupes, I already told you that I saw some pretty dupes at Primark for several brands. Among those dupes were eye pigments in little jars that are definitely sisters of the MAC Pigments. Here’s my review of Primark’s take on eye pigments!
This is a look at the Arctic Ice beauty collection by Primark (source: www.primark.com). I think it’s a gorgeous collection for the Holidays with a lot of products that I’d love to try out for Weeks of Beauty.
I managed to get the trio of eye pigments and one of the liquid glitters, but I am still on the hunt for the other three liquid glitters (Stila dupe!?) and the snowflake highlighters (MAC Holiday 2017 dupe!?).
The PS… Metal Frost Metallic Eye Pigment trio contains a burgundy eye pigment, a gold eye pigment and a bronze/brown eye pigment. Each little jar contains 4 grams of product. The trio retails for only €7,-.
These eye pigments make me think a lot about the MAC pigments. Pictured above is MAC Melon, one of the first MAC product I ever bought. Of course there are a lot of different brands that also come out with pigments in a jar like this, like NYX. But given the looks of the snowflake highlighters and eye shadows, I suspect MAC was their inspiration and I’m not mad about it, because the products look good!
The packaging of these eye pigments is spot on: under the cap is a little cover that you can close so the products does fly out of the packaging when traveling. Also, you can shake the product out because there’s also a dispenser inside. Extra points for Primark!
The product comes out in little ‘crumbs’. When you press and swipe the crumbs over the arm/eye/cheek, that’s when the product becomes visible and you can see the shine.
These swatches look very disappointing to me butttt luckily these swatches do not do the product justice, not even close.
I saw how amazingly pigmented and metallic the pigments are on the top of my fingers, which I used to make the swatches. Do you see how shiny these are!?
For this look I used two shades from the Too Faced Gingerbread Spice palette in the crease. I applied the burgundy eye pigment on the outer 2/3 of my eyelid and the gold eye pigment on the inner third of my eyelid.
These pigments are so metallic, also on the eyes. It’s gorgeous when the light hits it! If find that they work best when you tap some of the product on your hand (or piece of paper or something). I scoop the ‘crumbs’ up with my finger, press the product onto my eyelids and then I swipe the product over my eyelid. That is the best way to get that intense color payoff and metallic finish.
I am very, very impressed by these eye pigments! They also stay put very well. The metallic finish hardly fades during the day.
If you’ve got your eyes on these PS… Eye Pigments then I can tell you that it’s totally worth your bucks!
