Anastasia Daiquiri & Sand Loose Pigments Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Daiquiri Anastasia Daiquiri Loose Pigment ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, pale pink (nearly white) base with a “cooler,” golden sheen. I expected a gold-shimmered pink that I’ve seen many times before, but it was much, much lighter and brighter than most pink-with-gold-shift shades are. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and blendable on my eyes and cheeks. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to opaque, though some of that depended on how much product was picked up and with…

Anastasia Icy & Crystal Loose Pigments Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Icy Anastasia Icy Loose Pigment ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a pale white with neutral-to-warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It had a slightly larger particle shimmer to it, so it appeared more metallic, shinier, and seemed to have a touch of sparkle, too. This one seemed a little more pigmented, too, in a single “pass” of product, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand if you’re after sheerer application. The texture was finely-milled, blendable, and sat well on…

Anastasia Desert Loose Pigment Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Desert Anastasia Desert Loose Pigment ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium copper with a balance of warm, red and orange undertones paired with a high-shine, metallic finish. It had buildable pigmentation from sheer to opaque, which depended on how much was initially picked up and applied (the loose format makes it harder to determine what “one” layer is with consistency). It could also be applied with a wet brush for more intense coverage and shine with less product. The…
