Illamasqua Cream Pigment Androgen Review, Swatch, FOTD
This is part of Illamasqua new collection Theatre of Nameless.
Claims :Cream Pigment is an intensely colour-rich, crease resistant, matt formula, available in a variety of shades.
It creates the ultimate in textures on the face, eyes, lips or body. Apply with an Illamasqua brush or simply use your fingers for a buildable, water resistant, highly pigmented finish.
Layer under Powder Eye Shadow and Pure Pigment for added intensity.
Price : 1,260 approx
Like and Dislikes :
- Illamasqua cream pigment is quite versatile product. It can be used for cheeks, eyes, lips or body.
- Cream pigment ,imo, is an excellent concept considering that you don’t have to work with messy loose pigments any more.
- Androgen is a milky peach color, which is quite suitable for those with very fair skin tones. It does not have any shimmers in it.
- It is quite pigmented but I have to build it up for it to show on my NC 35 skin tone.
- It blended seamlessly and easily with both a duo fibre brush and finger tips.
- Although Androgen can be used various purposes, I preferred using it mainly for cheeks. On lips (as you’d see in pics below), it looks quite light and clashing against my skin tone. It looks more like base color for lips than the color itself.
- I have been using it from a couple of days and I noticed that when I use it as a blush, the staying power on its own is not that great. My skin drinks up the product within an hour. However, when I used it as base under a powder blush, my blush stayed all day long.
- It creases on eye lids on its own. You HAVE to apply a base to make the cream pigment work.
- On lips it is super opaque and gives a semi matte finish. It does not have a fragrance or taste. It accentuate the fine lines of lips and the staying power I noticed was around 4 hours. Also since the product is super opaque, you always have to smooth it out with fingers or else you’d end up with streaky application.It is quite water proof and transfer resistant as well.
- You can purchase it online at illamasqua.com it . It is not available in stores here in India.
And this is how Androgen Cream Pigment looks one me.
Overall, I feel the color is too light for most Indian skin tones. It mainly see it as cheek product and I don’t think this color is anything special. If you are using it for eyes, use a synthetic bristles brus I just use Q tip and blend it with fingers.

i love the concept of cream pigments but this shade really does look washed out ! 🙁
haan.. 😛 my lips toh looks corpsy with this :tongue:
hahahaha yeah they do …. i bought a creme color base today … same effect on lips :waaa:
which one you bought? i have hush.
tickle me pink …. only because it looked so pretty on my cheeks :love: :love: :love: :love: but on my lips it was scary whitish ! but the mua gave me a good trick … she said use it over a dark lip pencil and it will look nice … maybe if you try the same with this one iska kuch bhala ho sakta hai ?
janhavi, u meant lining the lips wid a dark lip pencil, ya lip penshill ko smudge kar k base bnaane ka hai 😐 😐
use dark pencil all over lips and then soften with creme color base all over … at the store she tries it with Plum lip pencil … but i have a shade called hover which is brown ish and with tickle me pink over it it turns into a soft brown pink shade somewhat like cosmo/midimauve ….
aaah, ohkkk, :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

Only lips , i didnt like, rest the face is looking pretty.. 😉 😉 .. and cute flower.. :methinks:
hihihihi that’s okay. this is just not me and is for those with very fair skin tones. 😀 😀
The concept on cream pigments is soo cool naa!!!! I liked it lots
and maybe thoda darker hue wont wash out!!
and the flower!!! let me drool
bee yeah a brighter warmer color would have worked. bt i guess it would work for their local market. :))
ratidoo does illmasqua retail in india ?
nah. only buy online. :((
geee that sucks !!! I really want to buy that OCC Lip Tar but i cant tell which is the right shade only by looking online 🙁 same with illamasqua.. cant spend meri mehnat ki kamai until i know for sure na
the color looks awesome in the dabba 🙂 but ya after application…for average indian complxion type, its too light!! :nababana: :nababana:
Hi Rati…It’s a really lovely colour, but yeah a bit too light….all the same you are looking so cute with the flower and from sideways your lips look like a baby’s pout…sho shweet…. :)) :))
Hey floral! 🙂
prod looks lovely on pan – just! :p
like your clip ratttttttiiiiiiiiii :happydance: :jog: :jog:
Yup, this is too light & camera did not catch any colour at all on ur cheeks. :nababana:
But u still look so pretty & I love that clip
Illamasqua is a really story-telling brand and my experience with their support staff is really the best. They belong to Kryolan, by the way.
The only reason why I do not use Illamasqua product are the ingredients used for their products which could have been considered modern in the 1960ies, but not today.
I like the color and texture a lot but as you said it is not going to show up on my skin at all 🙁 During the very initial stages of my makeup craze I ended up buying blushes that hardly shows on my skin 😛 Not going to do that mistake ever again 🙂
the color looks so pretty in the pan! it can be used as cream blush ! but its better to buy mac creamblend blush than this and ya as a lip product, it looks quite scary! :tongue:
again loved your eye makeup 🙂 it def looks pretty color but sad its tad too light 🙁
I guess the only complexion jispe it wont look washed out is that of a polar bear or an arctic fox! 😀 Baki sabpe washed out hi lgega..but is a great cheek color! But then again, this color is a very common blusher color, so u have 1 u neednt buy this one i think 😀
Awww…. such a cute box :woot: :woot: Ratiiiii…. love ur clip…. Looking veeery cute :puchhi:
Di u luking gud…..but seriously the colour pay off is really bad…i jst cant see d colour….Apart from it Did u applied it in ur lips too kya????I dint lyk d colour on the lips….But overall u luk guwjus as usal… :puchhi: :puchhi:
This shade is nice….and the cream pigment has excellent quality..but I guess the other shade of their Nameless collection would suit indian skintones better!! 🙂
Me louued your flower!!
I just love this thing to bits…..Because I love neon-ish peaches…but I can’t wear it without looking like a corpse. :nono:
Bt you look sooo cute with your clip and pillow! :love: Pappi dene ka man kar raha hai. :puchhi:
..Also,I DID SOME MAJOR HAULING RATI! :yahoo: :yahoo: :jalwa: :jalwa: :makeup: :makeup: :jiggy1: :jiggy1:
Magar mere paas dhang ka camera nahi hai isliye no haul wala post! :pan: :waaa:
naa..does not show up on u at all.. 🙁
