The Ram

Colour Pop The Ram Zodiac Loose Pigment ($6.00 for zero.08 oz.) is a vivid coral-red base with flecks of gold and pink glitter. It had extra semi-sheer to medium protection base with a wholesome dose of glitter to it, and whereas I used to be capable of construct it up, I discovered that it seemed lighter/extra gold than coral after I had it on my lid except it was actually piled on (then it took longer to dry and had a bent to get into my fantastic traces). The consistency had an airier base with chunkier glitter, which meant that an adhesive spray/cheesy base was essential to get most payoff, minimal fallout, and finest longevity as utilizing it.

Applied utilizing a dampened brush (with water), the product utilized with a bit of fallout, however after it dried down, any mixing moved the glitter and resulted in some fallout together with repeated fallout by the day (the primary time I examined it, I couldn’t make it by the day, my eyes had been watery nonstop). While the model makes says to make use of it with a primer (provided that it’s a cheesy one, frankly; something that’s already set doesn’t assist with fallout) or one among their cream eyeshadows for max longevity, this specific shade was not very purposeful with out a glitter adhesive.

It might be used as a cheek coloration (because it is without doubt one of the shades listed as “not intended for use in the immediate eye area”), and it utilized and buffed out with out an excessive amount of fuss, however there have been stray sparkles simply from mixing out the product after which a noticeable quantity of particles that had journeyed throughout my face.

The reformulated Loose Pigments are speculated to be “high impact, concentrated” pigments which might be “best used wet for a supercharged, intense metallic or duochrome finish.” The model particularly warns towards utilizing them dry on a “bare eye” (as in “should never be applied”), which is the place the unique and reformulation differ, because the originals might be used moist or dry. The model additionally acknowledged to “layer over an eyeshadow primer or Super Shock Shadow” for “the best staying power and pigmentation,” so presumably they aren’t significantly long-wearing “as is.” That’s correct; they final round seven hours utilized moist with water however get to 10 hours when used with an adhesive spray (I examined with MAC Fix+, which I’ve lots of prior testing expertise with).

They are higher than the originals, although they nonetheless undergo from lots of the anticipated downsides to working with free pigment, and whether or not the colour and end outweigh the applying pitfalls is a matter of choice, ability, and persistence. The components wanted to have a reasonably moist brush; not fairly sopping-wet however greater than barely damp (which is extra according to the quantity of wetness I discover essential to use 90%+ of merchandise). If my brush was too moist, although, it tended to unfold the product out too readily and was extra prone to go on inconsistently. The extra glittery shades labored higher with an adhesive spray or cheesy base, fairly than simply moist with water, as they wanted extra to assist the bigger sparkles adhere to pores and skin and minimized fallout/extreme unfold of the sparkles (past the place I wished them) when blended.

Because the components actually does work finest with a moist/dampened brush, they are not as blendable as soon as they’re dry, so working with two or three shades in the identical space is tougher than working with extra conventional, pressed powder eyeshadows. They’re extra within the vein of liquid and cream eyeshadows, that are blendable as they’re drying, however as soon as they set, most formulation are locked in place; these will not be fairly that locked in place however simply did not wish to diffuse readily. They wore between six and eight hours earlier than creasing, fading, and/or having a good quantity of fallout (utilized moist with water). I might solely suggest buying the components in the event you intend to make use of them with an adhesive spray or cheesy base. Drier primers, like MAC 24HR or Urban Decay Primer Potion work decently with most shades (fade-resistant however gentle to average fallout in any other case), however I might nonetheless go for a tackier base. The following shades stained, and so they stained by eyeshadow primer: The Ram, The Bull, The Water Bearer, The Archer.

The pigmentation was semi-opaque to opaque for many shades, and because it was a free product, it was usually extra about how a lot product was utilized, although I attempted to use a constant quantity for swatches (which had been all achieved moist with water). The consistency assorted from ethereal and finely-milled to heavier and extra glittery. I observed extra of a “puff” of pigment as I labored with most shades, which appeared to substantiate how finely-milled they had been. They may also be used on cheeks and lips, and the extra sparkly shades labored higher as cheek merchandise than those with deeper depth or base colours, as they tended to be a bit more durable to use and diffuse (even utilizing them dry as utilizing them moist on cheeks usually translated into stripes of coloration).

The packaging modified considerably, because the jars are actually taller, slimmer, and haven’t any sifter, although there is a plastic “lid” that sits inside the highest of the jar. I am not a fan of this fashion of packaging, particularly as these are meant for use moist, then it turns into very difficult to sift out simply sufficient product for a use and blend a moist brush with dry powder elsewhere (as an alternative of sticking one’s brush proper within the jar). It can be going to be progressively harder to choose up simply the correct quantity of product as product will get used up (and you are going decrease and decrease into the jar). The taller jars are also a bit simpler to knock over for these vulnerable to clumsiness (like myself).

The Maiden

Colour Pop The Maiden Zodiac Loose Pigment ($6.00 for zero.08 oz.) is a pale, heat white base with flecks of silver and gold glitter. The flecks of glitter had been massive and flat sufficient, and my pores and skin tone gentle sufficient, that it appeared extra pigmented utilized than swatched because it mirrored gentle spectacularly, but it surely was extra within the medium-coverage vary. I might solely get it to look extra semi-opaque when patted over glitter glue extra closely, but it surely seemed thicker and wasn’t as sparkly consequently (nearly like an excessive amount of of a superb factor!). The texture was chunkier and fewer fantastic, which was as anticipated based mostly on the glitter in it.

Applied with a moist brush, there wasn’t a lot fallout throughout utility, however there was nonstop fallout inside two hours of damage; this was one other shade that precipitated me to take my make-up off and should strive once more as a consequence of irritating my eyes. It was much less vulnerable to fallout for an extended time frame with a setting spray (MAC Fix+) and was extra manageable, however it’s a shade that basically needs to be used with nothing lower than a real glitter fixative. It was not workable over a typical eyeshadow primer (like Urban Decay Primer Potion).
