Review & Swatchfest: Naked Cosmetics Tropical Indulgence Pigment Set


Add captionNaked Cosmetics Tropical Indulgence Pigment Set

I'm obsessed with pigments. With so many uses, they represent the epitome of versatility in the makeup world, and I have an infatuation with multi-use products. Given my over-enthusiasm for pigments, it's no surprise that I own three pigment stacks from Naked Cosmetics - the JavaRainforest, and Ivory stacks. All of the, however, walk a little on the safe side in terms of color. Last time I was at IMATS, I thought I would take advantage of the awesome trade show deal and snag two more stacks - some that were a little more wild.

The Naked Cosmetics Tropical Indulgence Pigment Set contains 6 colorful pigments that really do reflect the colors of the tropics. In the configuration I have, the top shade (TI-02) is a hot magenta with a purple-fuchsia shift, the next down (TI-06) is a blue/green that leans more green, followed by TI-03 -a periwinkle with a light purple shift. Next comes TI-01- a peach-leaning pink with slight gold duo chrome, TI-04 - a periwinkle that lacks the purple TI-03 has, and TI-05 - a blue/green that leans more green and aqua than TI-06.

Each shade is pigmented, smooth, and shimmery although not super bold when worn alone. When mixed with water, however, they shades come to life with pigment and duo chromatic properties that make them interesting. While I like each color, I wish they would have substituted some drastically different colors - like orange or yellow - in for the shades that are similar to each other in order to really give this stack the feel of the tropics (and some variety). But as far as pigments go, I'm just as in love with them now as I was before.

Each of these shades can be worn as an eyeshadow, lip color, nail polish, temporary hair color, body pigment, blush, and more. Individually, these stacks retail for $14.99 a piece. Together, you can get them for $59.99 a stack. While it's definitely a better deal to buy in bulk, one stack is still pretty costly. I recommend purchasing at a trade show if you can. If you can't, however, I woulds till recommend these to die-hard pigment fans or those looking to experiment. If you find that these shades are too bold, but are still interested in pigments, make sure to check out the stacks I mentioned before! Naked Cosmetics pigments can be purchased at the Naked Cosmetics website.
