Good morning, ladies. Yesterday I forgot to mention another interesting Illamasqua product that recently caught my eye, this one a loose eyeshadow.
I think being MAC-like puts these Pure Pigments in good company, but the hits don’t stop there.
Props to Illamasqua for the packaging, too. The cap has a small hole with a stopper to help control how much pigment gets released from the sifter.
Two points for innovation!
But two big points OFF for the price-quantity ratio. It’s quite high for the amount of product you get. The small box comes with 1.3g of pigment (for $26), compared to MAC Pigment jars that come with 7.5g of product and cost $19.50.
I don’t know if Illamasqua plans to drop their pricing for Sephora, but I SURE HOPE THEY DO.
Color selection is a little limited for now; Conquer’s one of only 10 shades currently available on Illamasqua’s website, but things may change once the company has a more direct avenue into the US market later this year.
Illamasqua makes US landfall later this month, but I’m reading that Sephora plans to start selling the line online as of today.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
