Illamasqua Cream Pigments in Dab, Emerge and Mould. Review and Swatches

As you may remember, Illamasqua has launched the brand new product which is called Cream Pigment and you can read about it here.

There are 6 shades in general and I was given 3 of them to try out. I have Emerge, Mould and Dab. So here is what Illamasqua says about them and my opinion.

First of all I have to say that I like the idea that you can use these on eyes/lips/cheeks/face/body- whatever you can think of and whatever suits you.

Once you have learnt how to master them, you can control their impact.”

So here we go:

Emerge (peach) – “This peach brightens under eye shadows and is beautiful as a highlighter on olive – darker skintones. It’s also a very flattering blusher on paler skin tones.”

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for me as an under  eye concealer as I find the texture  heavy for my taste and it looks too obvious on myself. As for the lipstick – I wouldn’t wear it on it’s own as it looks like concealer on me but it’s great to mix with other shades to make them lighter!

I was interested in how it is compared with Rude ( I L-O-V-E Rude, definitely, a must have from the brand) so here you go. If I had to choose between both – I’d go for Rude as I love the shade, texture, blend-ability, well, everything about it.

Dab (lilac) – “This
