What on earth is mineral pigments???
Mineral pigments are pigments that are created by combining and heating naturally occurring elements. They include ultramarine and spinel pigments such as below mentioned. I did some google search and found some information which I thought would help answer this question.
In summary: historically, ultramarine blue was derived from the precious stone called lapus lazuli. The use of ultramarine pigments is to create deep blues and violets that are fit for a work of art.
Let’s take a look!
I think this is one of the Mineral Colour Pigments by Gosh that wouldn’t drive me crazy. I picked it several weeks ago and I’m wearing it today. The bright Apple Green color is pretty and inviting. I typically don’t use mineral powder shadow very often but this shade of light green with a tiny hint of shimmer, I like. This Mineral Colour Powder has a very light and silky texture too.
First, I love the color green and this shade is right up my alley. Second, it doesn’t cause any mess on my face or on my vanity when I’m applying the shadows.
The tricky part is taking out the product from the jar. Instead of dipping or scrambling to pick up the shadow from the tiny hole, what I did was to shake the products into the cover and use my finger to apply them on my lids. No hassle and no mess. I like that!
Jar packaging is cute with a duo plastic lid to protect the mineral powder. Easy to pick up products with eyeshadow brush and it blends well.
It’s silky, soft, finely milled and blends easily onto lids! It doesn’t cause any creases or fall out when I used it with dry application. The texture gives a wet look on swatch as seen on my fingers and directly on bare hand.
Color swatch on dry application on naked hand. Nice color payoff, what you see is what you get especially more with wet application. The product are more intense and bold. It really is not that intense neon apple green, depending on how you use. If used lightly as on the lids or inner corners it is just a normal colored shimmer.
Overall, I feel this is a very nice pigment shadow. When paired with a good primer, this product also wears well into the day without having to touch up. I would recommend if you’re looking for an alternative to the pricey MAC pigments. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix.
