Pigment Kisses (The Body Needs)

Pigment Kisses (The Body Needs)

The Body Needs Pigments & Blush REVIEW:

The colors of pigments they have are very beautiful & are finely powdered; they texture isn't thick or chunky like Macs pigments. The colors go on very bright and are easy to work with. They look REALLY pigmented when I used their water based mixing medium (see photo below). 

The Vixen blush is really awesome, and I like it a lot. The texture is also very fine, powder like the pigments but the color is what got me; it's a soft pink with very subtle accents of blue and purple shimmer which looks beautiful on. Overall I really like the products I tried; they're good quality, with beautiful colors & the best past is that they're really affordable.

Powdered Navy

Powdered Navy

I wanted to do a matte smokey eye using off white, soft brown and navy. I wanted to do a light smokey eye, not as heavy as I usually do. I also used lighter criss-cross lashes to focus on the eyeshadow a little more. Since the eyes aren't too heavy & went darker with the pink on the cheeks and a did a pink/purple lip.

Hope you like it!
