You already know about my love affair with the MUG pigment Enchanted, as it has come up in several posts. It is soooo beautiful that I feel like my words just never come out right and my photos never seem to able to capture its true colour.
Getting a few more MUG pigments was the makeup purchase I allowed myself for October (and most of November, I am not allowed to buy any more makeup until then…tough life!). They arrived today…only a week after they were shipped. When the bell rang this morning and I got the package from the post man, I was absolutely delighted. I had read so many reviews and seen so many looks with these pigments that I did not doubt even for a second that I would like them. “Like” is a monstrous understatement of how I feel about these “jars of joy and colour”…I adore, love and worship them!!!…But let’s take it one step at a time…
Let’s open the four pigments together 🙂
The packaging of MUG products is always so cute that throwing it away almost feels like a crime:
The jars are plastic and also have the Makeup Geek logo on the cap:
And inside, they are full to the brim with product:
And now to swatches and a few more words on each pigment:
I still cannot tell you enough how gorgeous these pigments are!
- Liquid Gold…need I really write more words when the swatch already says it all?!?! This pigment is extremely potent and is truly liquid gold in a jar. The admiration it has already earned amongst beauty bloggers is absolutely, 200% justified…Look at it!
- Insomnia is obviously a duochrome pigment, which cannot decide between reddish-brown and metallic blue-green. Stunning! Also, it’s a dupe for MAC’s Blue Brown pigment, but a lot cheaper 😉
- Blitz is one of the five new pigments in the MUG collection. A perfect shade for the autumn, Blitz is a beautiful shimmery warm brown-red. When I saw it, apart from squeaking with joy, I had the urge to run down the stairs and stop the first blue- or green-eyed lady and smear Blitz on her eyelids. This colour would look so freakin’ gorgeous on them!
- New Year’s Eve is like pixie dust in a jar…or at least I find it magical! It’s champagne with gold reflective glitter. The swatch doesn’t do it justice. You should see it live…
Each of these beauties costs $6,99, and can be ordered from here.
I did a look with them immediately..of course!!! But I think I will show it to you tomorrow…or maybe later 😉
How do you like these pigments? Which one do you like the most (can you really pick, I can’t!)???
