FaceFront Lust Quest pigments: review, swatches (part two)

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

The product: FaceFront Artistic Pigment in Soloura, Sea Soldier, and Steam

Don’t miss: part one, with photos of the other three pigments & general thoughts on the collection!

Solura (lite) – a gorgeous yellow-toned hilight. Not the most unique shade, of course, but gorgeous nonetheless ;) If you used a less-dense brush, this would look lovely on the cheekbones as well – perhaps a bit of a NARS Albatross dupe?

Sea Soldier (steel) – sea-foam green meets teal, according to FaceFront. I’d have to agree; it’s a really lovely, summery bright blue-green. I’d like a touch more pigmentation out of it, but it’ll still layer really well, and the finely-milled shimmer hits the nail right on its head!

Steam (pewter) – summery orange (rather than traffic-cone, which is always a plus). It’s a colour family I’m not usually fond of, but I actually really like how this looks next to Sea Soldier! The pigmentation’s decent when used dry with no base (as swatched above), but it’s awesome when foiled.

The verdict?

I really like these – surprisingly a lot, actually! While the other three from Lust Quest would normally tickle my fancy (hello, violets and greys), I think they did a better job with these ones, to be honest. And heck, they’re perfect for summer!

  1. I just don't know why anyone would choose to buy these instead of less costly and better pigmented indie colors =/

  5. Soloura is perfect on you! It looks like that (by me coveted) kind of highlight that just looks like beautiful, shiny(??!).. well, glistening skin! (However I write that, it just sounds unappealing) And not glittery. Or teal. Though that's good for somewhere and sometime, the way this looks on your skin is just right :D

    Sea Soldier is definitely up my alley! And yes, these do look better than those in your previous post (part one).

    p.s. your link which leads to part one is wrong – it leads to part two :D so you should fix that :)
