For a color-true experience, use the best. These highly pigmented loose mineral eye shadows are not only recognized by the industry’s best make-up artists, but also a customer favorite. Versatile enough to use all over face for contouring and special effects, but specially formulated for eyes. Create beautiful looks with this make-up artist must-have. From delicate day looks, guide and mold your creativity to create bold, energetic creations perfect for night life, stage, or screen. May be used wet or dry.
These powders come in plastic jars that have twist-off tops and sifters inside. The packaging is lightweight and the tops fit securely, making these good for putting in your makeup case. Each jar also has a glittery, silver heart painted on the inside of the lid.
Loose powders are inevitably more messy than pressed powders, but the holes in the sifters are the right size so that you don’t get too much powder going everywhere. In fact, I wish the sifters had 5 holes instead of 3 because you do have to tap the jars a few times to get enough pigment into the jar. But this is a very small inconvenience.
Each jar lid has a clear plastic sticker on it displaying the company’s logo. I would prefer the logo to be printed directly onto the jar. But, again, this preference is minor, and given that FaceFront is a newly re-vamped company, I expect that the packaging designs will change and improve over time.
Mouse Grey is a mid-toned grey. Silver Fox is a very light lilac. Sea Soldier is an aqua blue/green/turquoise. Soloura is a light nude. La La Lilac is a vibrant lilac purple with blue-toned shimmers. Steam is a slightly burnt, medium orange. All of these pigments are shimmery or glittery except for Mouse Grey, which has a matte finish.
All of the colors have decent pigmentation. Mouse Grey and Silver Fox are on the weaker side for pigmentation compared to the other colors; La La Lilac and Steam have the strongest color-payoff.
These pigments don’t cheat you when it comes to shimmers. They’re so shimmery, in fact, that you should be careful with fallout.
Ease of Use: 9/10
You can use these pigments both wet and dry. They go on smoothly, can be layered, and blend easily.
Applying these products won’t be as simple as applying pressed shadows, but that’s the nature of application when you’re working with loose powders.
The pigments are $10.50 each and contain 5g of product. For comparison, Bare Escentuals eye shadows give you 0.57 g of product for $13. You are getting 10 times the amount of product for less with the FaceFront pigments. Everyday Minerals shadows have 2.5 g of product and are $7 each.
Also notable is that the Ouro Fino pigments are the same size, but cost $15.50 each. So you’re getting a great deal with the pigments from this collection.
