Review & Swatchfest: Naked Cosmetics Twilight Collection

Naked Cosmetics Twilight Collection 
Regular readers of the blog will know from previous posts about Naked Cosmetics of my love for pigments and their many uses, so I won't get into the nitty gritty here. Instead I'm going to focus on the Naked Cosmetics Twilight Pigment Collection - a set of six pigments that are similar to the Ivory stack in the way they transform over a dark base.

01 is a shimmery light taupe when used dry, but contains light gold shimmer that become more evident when layered over a black base.
02 is a sheer, pale blue when worn dry and becomes more opaque when used wet. The baby blue shimmer within the pigment becomes bolder when used over a dark base.
03 is a sheer dusty mauve when worn dry, a pinker, more opaque shade with a grey duochrome when used wet, and a bright, shimmery pink when layered over a black base.
04 is a sheer emerald green shimmer with a grey base color when used dry. It transforms into a bolder green shimmer with a grey duochrome when used wet, and bold shimmery emerald when worn over a black base.
05 is a blue-purple shimmer with a dark grey base that applies sheer when worn dry. The shimmer appears more blue when applied dry and almost completely blue when worn over black.
06 is a black with a frosty silver that applies sheer when dry, opaque when wet, and appears much more frosted and silver when worn over black.

Overall, the pigment quality within this stack is consistent with the rest of Naked Cosmetics pigmentes. It will come down to, as always, whether or not you like this particular cluster. The pigments are unique and extra versatile given their split personality when worn over a black base. Those that like subtle daytime colors that can really be played up at night or for special occasions will definitely love these! Matte lovers will have to beware though as this stack is a shimmer-laden paradise.
