Review: Essence Colour Arts Pigment 17 Dory In Love

Essence has a new product in their range: Colour Arts Pigments. There are 20 pigments to choose from with different finishes, mattes, shimmers and glitters. I wanted to try and test one these new pigments so I bought  17 Dory In Love.

Dory In Love is a shimmery bright blue that comes in a small, clear plastic jar. Each jar contains 1.8 grams of product which isn’t much compared to a MAC pigment, those contain 4.5 grams of product but I’ve never finished a MAC pigment. Besides MAC pigments are €16,50 and the Essence Colour Arts Pigments will only cost you €2,59. Many of you probably already know that pigments are multi-use products, you can’t only use them as eyeshadows, you can also mix them with (clear) lipgloss, (clear) nail polish or other pigments to create your own colours.

The Essence Colour Arts pigments work just like all other pigments best when applied wet or over a sticky base. The swatches I made are from left to right: dry, over MAC Painterly Paint Pot and applied with a damp brush.
