So today I have a bit of a comparison between 2 products I had the chance to try these past few days. These are Kind of New to the Makeup Community, so you could consider this a first impressions/review.
The first one comes from Maybelline you know how much I love their color tattoos so I was pretty excited when I saw a display of their new Pure Pigments; I thought what a great idea especially because most of the colors are similar to their color tattoos. Well I picked up two colors Never Fade Jade and Barely Brazen but, when I first swatch them, well you can see it for yourself, the emerald color (Never Fade Jade) looks ok (not that fancy as I was expecting) but the Barely Brazen color is just nothing (only glitter). Maybe I set my hopes too high, but I did not like them. Another thing that I don’t like is the packaging you have to literally hit the small package in order to get product out of those tiny holes, but I am guessing that if I carry that thing somewhere all product will spill and will make a mess (just saying!). Finally these are freaking expensive I think they are almost $6.00 USD which for me does not cut it. Sorry Maybelline I do love your color tattoos but these things are preposterous.
Now on the other side of the rainbow I found this little product from NYC it is called Sparkle Eye Dust in Topaze Rose. This is basically loose eye shadow in a stick it is amazing and I just love it, it comes with a sponge applicator which makes things very easy, to avoid any fallout I go first with a cream eye shadow and then apply this. I love their pigmentation alone it is just amazing, color is very pretty, and they are so inexpensive less than $3.00 USD. This product is compact so I can carry it everywhere I want without worrying if the loose shadow will spill all over.
So if I had to pick of course I chose NYC inexpensive, easy to apply, good packaging, and great pigmentation. Sorry Maybelline but the pigments suck.
Until Next Time,
