FIRST IMPRESSIONS | JCAT BEAUTY PIGMENTS

In my makeup collection, I'm quite drastically lacking pigments which can be a tiny bit annoying when I'm always thinking they would be perfect to complete my eye look! I was placing a US makeup haul, and I decided to pick up a few of the JCat Beauty pigments because I had heard so many positive reviews about them. The pigments are less than $5 per pot too so they are great value for money! JCat Beauty is also a cruelty-free brand which makes this even better. Each pigment retails at $3.49 which makes you more likely to pick up multiple shades compared to a normal drugstore brand.

Sparkling Powder | Golden Pumpkin

JCat Beauty stock two different finishes in the pigments - Shimmery or Sparkling, however, this doesn't mean that the colours are the same across the two products. The sparkling powder is more of a chunky finish which has a lot more texture to the pigment, whereas the shimmery powder is very finely milled and has a very smooth finish.

I was incredibly impressed with the swatches of these pigments, but the application could get a little bit messy because there is no sifter on the packaging of the pigments. I loved the finish of the pigments although, I'm not entirely sure how often I'd use the sparkling powders. I can't wait to start bringing these pigments into my makeup routine and to branch out and purchase more outgoing pigment shades! Even without a base for the pigments, they didn't seem to budge. When testing this with a cream eyeshadow base, it really made the colour of the pigment pop.
