My Experience with L.A. Colors Iced Pigment Powder Gleam:
Starting from the packaging of product – the powder pigment comes in a small, square-shaped transparent jar. The jar closes with a color-coded metallic finish screw-on lid. The lid of this jar looks cute and beautiful. It makes the whole packaging attractive. There is a small label at the base of the jar mentioning the shade name, number and other necessary details about the product. The jar has a sieve-like safety cover to prevent the powder from creating a mess. Overall, the packaging is good, lightweight and travel friendly.
“Gleam” is a beautiful peacock blue color pigment. This is my favorite shade amongst the four variants that I have picked from this range. It has very finely milled micro-shimmers in it. These shimmers give it a pretty frosty finish. The shimmers are silver in color, but they are too fine and are barely noticeable.
This pigment does not look chunky or over the top. This shade is ideally suitable for creating heavy eye makeup looks. It is a stunning color for creating evening party looks; such bold shades are not daytime wear stuff. The color looks lovely on the eyes and enhances the entire look. One may create a variety of eye makeup looks using this color.
This shade is bold and dramatic, so everyone may not like such shades, but personally, I loved the color. The pigment is insanely pigmented. I barely need two swipes to get a rich shade on my eyes. It can be used both wet and dry. I prefer using it wet as the color look more intense and gorgeous when applied wet.
The texture is soft and smooth. It is very easy to blend. It goes effortlessly on the eyes and looks even. It does not drag on the eyelids. The formula is lightweight and comfortable to wear. Since, this is a powder pigment, it has a little fallout, so I always remove the excess amount on the brush to prevent any fallout.
It feels silky smooth while blending the pigment. The finish of the pigment is frosty. It gives a nice dimension to regular eye makeup. It blends easily with other eyeshadows as well. The pigment never gets patchy and also it does not have any creasing issues. The longevity of the eyeshadow pigment is somewhere around 6-7 hours. Removing it is slightly difficult as the shimmers are hard to remove, but the pigment wipes off easily.
Overall, I am happy with the quality of the product considering its price tag.
