Annabelle Mineral Pigment Dust - Golden Pink

I'm definitely a newbie when it comes to using pigments, but I was still really excited to try out Annabelle's Mineral Pigment Dust in the shade Golden Pink* ($8.95/2.5g). This pure pigment comes packaged in a little plastic container that is actually fairly mess-free!

"Let there be light! These highly pigmented loose eyeshadows are made with fine pearl particles and minerals to create incredible shine and shimmer. Use just a little for a more subtle effect or apply wet in a bold stroke for incredible luminescence. Available in convenient and fuss-free compacts, they contain the most beautiful shades. Be as mild or as wild as you wish! Oil free. Talc free. Perfume free. Paraben free. Size: 0.08 OZ / 2.5 g" - Annabelle

Annabelle Mineral Pigment Dust comes packaged in a small plastic container, which opens up to a small opening. I do find the lid a bit tight and tricky to open up, but it isn't a deal breaker. The opening is fairly small, so you'll need to use a small brush to pick up the pigment. I prefer to unscrew the lid completely, which allows you to use any sized brush of your choice. I really like to use a flat shadow brush such as the ones that come with Urban Decay's Naked Palettes. 

Annabelle's Mineral Pigment Dust can be applied either wet or dry, and I prefer to apply them dry just because it's easier! I don't do my makeup in a bathroom, so I find it easier to use a dry brush to apply pigments. I start out by applying a primer (I'm currently using Too Faced's Shadow Insurance) all over my lids. I then take some of is pigment on my brush, and tap it onto my lids. I am really (pleasantly) shocked at how easy and mess-free this pigment is! The shade Golden Pink is very pigmented and the colour shows up fairly boldly on my lids. I didn't get any fallout onto my cheeks, either at the time of application or throughout the day. 

Golden Pink is such a complex shade, I absolutely love the golden sheen to this eye shadow. I find that I can get away with wearing only this pigment, yet it looks like I've put a lot of work into my eye look! I can just slap on some eye liner and mascara and call it a day! This pigment lasts all day long on my lids without fading or creasing. Honestly, this is what I was hoping Maybelline's Color Tattoo Pure Pigments would be! Annabelle's Mineral Pigment Dust is much more pigmented and I prefer the formula. 

Are you a fan of using pigments? Annabelle has 6 shades in this range, and I'm wanting to try out all of them! Golden Pink is a gorgeous shade that is highly pigmented and long-wearing. Would you wear a shade like this? :) 


  1. I can't believe how great this pigment looks dry! It really does have a lot of depth.

  2. Wow, i love how pigmented this is!! :)
