Tis’ the season to be swatching! Buckle up girlies I’m about to bring out four gorgeous purples from Halener Rustique who is a local Facebook seller of pigments. In case you’re wondering each pigment bag cost $5TT but these also come in small containers for about $15TT each. She also has sales at various times of the year where you can get about 30 pigment samples for about $100TT. Deal right!
Disney is a colour that appears white in the bag but has a purple duo chrome. It’s highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. Although it appears white in the bag, depending on how the light hits it you can see the purple duo chrome. Extremely sparkly in the sunlight.
Lollipop is a bright true purple. Very pigmented with loads of sparkle.
Stunnin is a dark purple with a black undertone. I didn’t like the black undertone but would have preferred it to be just the gorgeous dark purple plum colour it appears to be in the bag.
Rockinger is a dark plum colour. The colour on application it true to the colour seen in the bag. This one is highly pigmented and even stains your skin a little.
I really love all the purples from this set of Halener Rustique pigments but Lollipop is my favourite. Overall all the pigments are very finely milled, very sparkly and soft in texture. The colours themselves are extremely pigmented but buildable in case you want a sheer wash, just apply sparingly. I can see myself adding the pigments from Lollipop and Stunnin to clear lip-gloss to create stunning lip-glosses, pun intended!
