Urban Decay Loose Pigment in PROTEST

7:58 AM

I don't normally gravitate towards loose shadows because they can be a bit hard to work with. So despite how gorgeous the shade is, if it's in the "pigment" form, I totally lose my excitement. So imagine how happy I was when big brands like Guerlain and Urban Decay started introducing the no-spill tubes for loose pigments. Haven't seen one before? Then, let me walk you with this awesome packaging innovation. Enter, Urban Decay Loose Pigment in Protest (valued at US$20).



Description from Urban Decay's website: These powdery-fine, silk soft shadows deliver more intense color than pressed or cream eye shadows. Try a little for a sheer wash of color, or layer for bold, shimmering hues. With everything from bold brights to pretty neutrals, there's something for everyone! The loose pigment formula is actually mineral make up, made from pearlized powders derived from minerals. No dyes or synthetic pigments are used. 

The coolest advantage over other brand's loose pigments? No messy pots! The spill-proof tube uses a special internal funnel to keep pigment inside until you're ready to use it. The cap features an ergonomic flared handle and a built-in premium brush. Dip the brush into the color to apply, or tap out a little color and use your own brushes.

For starters, I love the design of the packaging. Purple is my favorite color, so I'm a little biased on this part. But really, art is definitely popping on this tube (love the graffiti). I also like that I can see the actual color of the pigment at the bottom part of the tube. And the best part, it's really spill-proof! Yey, good-bye to "pigment spills everywhere!" It also has a built-in brush inside which helps press the pigment on the lids. It may be unhygienic for some (just like a lip gloss) so make sure to wipe the brush clean before screwing the tube back. 

Now, the shade Protest is also a winner. It is a medium-deep forest green with silver sparkles. I have brown eyes and green shadows bring out the best in them. It looks amazing and stays put all day when used on top of Urban Decay primer potion or when foiled (used wet).

The only downside is, Urban Decay phased out this product line already (mine was sent by The Style Quarter). But hopefully, they will revamped this in the future. Perhaps with more shade selection and slimmer tubes.
