Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Ore!

My Illamasqua love affair continues today with their Pure Pigment in Ore. It was love at first swatch with Ore’s shimmery bronze-gold goodness, however I didn’t buy it immediately as I generally find pigments annoying to use. Ah but alas, Ore kept haunting me, so I finally gave into temptation during their recent Amnesty campaign. Now I wonder why I hesitated! Ore is definitely one of the best and prettiest pigments I’ve tried. It is long wearing and easy to work with, and has a super metallic finish especially when applied wet. It also contains little individual glitter particles which add a gorgeous sparkle to the pigment. 

If you love shimmery, bronzey gold colours with an amazing finish and texture, then I highly suggest you head to your nearest Illamasqua counter and check this out. Run guys, don’t walk.

Here’s a FOTD featuring Ore 🙂

    gorgeous FOTD, I really want Ore. Will probably get that when my wallet recovers.

    I love your hair in this too, wish my hair is thick enough to do the front braids

    @Jen W – Thanks hun 🙂 I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do when you get it. I love front braids, pretty but quick to do. Maybe try working some mousse into your hair, it’ll give it more body and texture when you do the braid 🙂
