Made to be played with, a metallic, high-shine, pure-colour powder that highlights eyes, cheeks and brows. Mix with eye shadow, blusher or use it on its own to intense effect. Bring out your bold side.
Part of Illamasqua's Theater of the Nameless Collection for Autumn/Winter 2011, Beguile pure pigment is described as a high-shine metallic light shimmer. The pigment comes packaged in a slim box, and while the top might seem difficult to open, there is no way the pigment would fall out because of the secure packaging.
Beguile is white with multihued shimmer - pink, blue, green - mixed in with a pearly white. It shimmers like a rainbow when the light hits it :D
|The amount I have on my fingertip is all I needed for my eye makeup.|
How to Use (From the Illamasqua website):
Pure Pigment can be applied dry or even wet for a bolder colour pay-off. To intensify the colour, apply over a cream texture, as this will hold the colour in place and amplify it. Alternatively mix with Sealing Gel and apply using a fine brush and use as a shimmery liquid eye liner. When applied with a long bristle brush, Pure Pigment can also be used as a highlighter anywhere on the eyes, face and body.
Illamasqua has given a lot of options for using this pigment, but I chose the safe route and used it with my eyeshadow. I tried a dark smokey eye and dabbed and blended a little pigment over the center of my eyelid to to brighten the eye. I also used a little bit of the pigment near the inner corner - a really tiny amount is all I needed.
Beguile is a beautiful colour, and if you love makeup and are creative, I am sure you would find a million uses for this. As with most pigments, a little goes a long way, and this would last a long long while at least for me.
