Pure Luxe Eyeshadow Pigment in Faceted

Faceted is so special it deserves a post of it's own. It's one of the shades from the Pure Luxe Kaleidoscope Collection which change colors depending on the light and angle. Each color is supposed to shift to three different shades.

Pure Luxe site says: ''Faceted is dark taupe/purple in jar. Color changes from red to copper and gold.''
Well, I don't agree with this description. Faceted looks light grey with pink micro shimmer in the jar.

I also can't see the three shades it's supposed to shift to. Red, copper and gold... Hmmm... All I can see is pink, grey and warm orange-y (like sunset). It's still very pretty and worth every cent, I just don't understaind their description of it. Are we looking at the same shade? It doesn't seem so.

Here's how the colors shifted after I applied Faceted on the back of my hand using foiling method. That's a fancy way to say - I applied it with a damp brush. :) I didn't use any primer under it. Please keep in mind it's very hard to capture this kind of shade on camera. It looks far more interesting and beautiful in real life.

I also applied it wet on my eyelids. I used nothing else but Faceted on my upper lid. No primer, no other shades. Pretty, right?

I also made a short video featuring Faceted. :D

Price: $2.00 for sample, $8.00 for 5g jar and $15.00 for 10g jar

Where to buy? Pure Luxe website.

If you're planning on ordering from Pure Luxe, I suggest you try sample sizes first. Most of the regular eyeshadow pigments are only $1.00 when you're buying sample sizes and the amount of the pigment in the jar is really generous.

Thanks for looking!
