Review & Swatches: Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Pigment Set

In addition to the Vegas Lights Shadow Palette, Makeup Geek recently released the Vegas light Pigment Collection - loose, shimmery shadows that complement the warm shades within the collection. Included within the shade range is:

Jackpot - A pale shimmery gold
Poker Face - A deep shimmery bronze
Night Life - A cool shimmery medium taupe
Vegas Lights - A warm copper shimmer
Liquid Gold - A bold metallic green-gold

While all of the pigments are beautiful, I have a few favorites among them. Jackpot, Liquid Gold, and Poker Face all have ultra-smooth textures that almost turns into a cream when applie to the lid. It makes for unbelievably pigmented shadows with almost no fallout - the best! Also, each are so multi-dimensional that you can wear them alone and get as much dimension as two or three shadows might provide. The real clincher is their lasting power - I found they lasted crease and fade-free all day when worn un-primed! A girl can't ask for anything more. 

None of the above is to say that I don't like the other two shades within the set - they just have slightly different textures and wear qualities. Night Life is a considerably drier pigment, so it wears like a more traditional pigment without the ultra-smooth texture. Similarly, Vegas Lights almost looks like a glitter because the pigments are drier and less finely milled. Worn foiled, it looks like every other pigment within the collection. Applied dry, and I found that it led to more fallout, and needed more layering to achieve the color intensity I was after. 

The set retails for $33.99 - at $6.99 a shadow, it's not much of a discount, but these shadows are already reasonably priced and well worth it! That being said, if you just see a shadow or two from the set that you like, you won't be missing out on a huge discount if you decide to purchase those alone.
