INGLOT have just launched the most divine super-versatile little play things in the form of 40 new Body Pigments, R189.
What makes these babies special is that you can do pretty much anything – ANYTHING! – with them. Seriously. You can use them on both your face and body as is or get all mad scientist-y with the rest of your make-up.
For example, you know about INGLOT’s Duraline, right? If not, this is their bestselling ‘transforming liquid’ that converts powder shadows and pigments into liquid form.
INGLOT Duraline, R119
Anyway, just a few drops of Duraline is all it takes to turn the Body Pigments into colourful liquid liner, ‘cream’ shadow, ‘cream’ blush or body paint! It then gets better… you can also add the Body Pigments to your lipgloss, nail polish, foundation, body lotion, whatever… the choice is yours.
But let me stop rambling on and just show you sommer… First up, we’ve got the pigments used dry:
From left to right we’ve got 174 (Matte), 150 (Pearl) and 156 (Matte).
This is what they look like with a bit of Duraline added to them:
Nice and dark, ne?
Next, I tried the whole mixing it with your gloss thing and was super impressed; look at how good this looks!
A plain old Catrice lip gloss mixed in with le orange pigment…
The result? A new tangerine-coloured shade I shall from now on refer to as ‘Fanta Pants’.
I loved that it didn’t change the way the gloss went on or felt; only the colour. So clever!
And yes, I know this shade sooo doesn’t suit me, but that’s not the point. The fact that it was so easy to create is like beyond awesome!
I also mixed the blue and gold pigments into clear nail polish and what do you know, making your own nail polish colours is as easy as pie!
‘Rolling in the Deep’…
‘Midas A Nice Colour’…
When it dried I had this irrational fear that it would revert back to powdery pigment and I’d end up smearing colour on everything but this wasn’t the case; it dried just as normal nail polish would and had a nice glossy-looking finish.
I was super grateful for the little palette (R79) and spatula (R49) that INGLOT gave me; both made mixing things up super easy.
See how I like to ‘live on the edge’, blending right on the bedroom floor sans newspaper? If my boyfriend had walked in at that moment I’d have been in seriyas trouble…
Anyway, if you’re an INGLOT fan, a professional make-up artist or simply like to play or experiment with your make-up; you’re going to LOVE these guys. Like I said, they’re available in 40 different colours so you’re not going to sikkel to find shades that you adore.
Thanks INGLOT, this was super fun!
P.S. I see you can now shop for INGLOT goodies online via their local website. Nice, very nice…
