Swatchfest: Naked Cosmetics Color Collection in Ivory

The first time I had ever heard of naked cosmetics was in watching someone use the Ivory stack in a youtube tutorial. It was love at first sight. I knew that when I approached the booth at IMATS, I wasn't leaving without it.

Much like the quality of the other two stacks I have, Ivory's pigments are smooth, and finely ground despite having some serious shimmery goodness. While they don't look like much in the pot, when they are swatched they reveal a hint of color and, when swatched over a colored base, they reveal a split personality. Much like the other stack I reviewed, Java, these pigments can be used on the face, eyes, lips, hair, and nails. The opitime of versatility.

Also like the other stacks, however, is the inability to stay strong for more than a few hours without a base. Honestly, I don't hold this against them because I never go without some sort of eyeshadow base. But, for those who don't, it's something to know.

Now, let's get to what every makeup hound wants: the swatches.

Pigment 1 - White pearl - no glitter 
Pigment 2 - Magenta reflect

Pigment 3 - Yellow reflect

Pigment 4 - Light green reflect

Pigment 5 - Soft purple reflect

Pigment 6 - Soft blue reflect

I'm sure I don't have to tell you what a wow favor these are over a black base! These are going to provide a great way to put a twist on an eye look (or highlight for a night out!), add some subtle color to the hair, and include in some nail art. I have some big plans for these babies.
