These loose eye shadows were a part of my prize from the Annabelle Holiday Season Express Giveaway (read my post about it here.) I have them in the shade Golden Pink and Chiffon.
EDIT: "a girl at Annabelle Cosmetics" kindly informed me of the following by leaving me a comment on this post:
From "a girl at Annabelle Cosmetics" @ Gaby: your assumptions were right. The Pigment Dust - Chiffon will be officially disconitnued within 10 days. With every bad news come a good one! We will be re-launching the Pigment Dusts as the MINERAL Pigment Dust and doing a shade update all at once. Keep an open eye for the 3 NEW shades! Just a note: since the new formulas are paraben free, you MUST mix the powder with water in a separate container. Do not use a damp applicator in the new pots since the are devoid of preservatives.

Let there be light! These highly pigmented loose eye shadows are made with fine pearl particules and minerals to create incredible shine and shimmer.
Use just a little for a more subtle effect or apply wet in a bold stroke for incredible luminescence. Available in convenient and fuss-free compacts, they contain the most beautiful shades. Be as mild or as wild as you wish!How to use:
Pigment powders can be used two ways: dry or wet. To apply dry, simply sweep across the eyelid or dot on specific areas to create an iridescent effect. Use either your fingers or the Annabelle A-8 Small Shader Brush.
When mixed with water, it transforms into a rich-coloured liquid liner with remarkable stay-on power. Simply mix a little Pigment Dust with a few drops of water in a small container and apply directly to skin. Use as a dramatic eyeshadow or a dazzling eyeliner. Use the Annabelle A-14 Angled Brush to trace a fine line just above the upper lashes. You'll be amazed at its long lasting colour.Ingredients: Imidazolidinyl urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben. May contain: Carmine, Chromium oxide greens, Ferric ferrocyanide, Iron oxides, Mica, Silica, Titanium dioxide.
- highly pigmented
- true to the color in the compact
- doesn't fall all over my face
- stay put all day long, with or without primer!
- color stays true all day long
- I find the compacts are little hard to open (too thight)
- could be too shimmery for some (but not me!)
*I have to say that I haven't tried to use them wet yet.
You can see some FOTDs I made with these pigments here (Chiffon) and here (Golden Pink).
Chiffon is a really pretty iridescent yellow.
(Sorry, I still don't get why Blogger turns my picture upside down -_-)
Golden Pink looks like two eye shadow into one: a soft pink one and a yellow/gold one.
Chiffon is not listed in the available shades as it will be discontinued in 10 days.
