The pigment

Words? Who needs words?

(Okay, I need words. Even if this post was planned out to be nothing but a mindless picspam, I need words! This gorgeous shimmery  shade is FaceFront’s Silver Fox, a silver pigment with lilac undertones and a delicious “wet” sort of finish, even when used dry. You can catch it in action in this violet and silver makeup look.)

The swatches

I’m sorry, these swatch photos should be could be are all rather sub-par because the sun won’t properly come out… but you’ll just have to deal. I promise to make it up to you sometime, somehow!

After much contemplation (okay, okay, after a few moments of contemplation), I decided to just post all three – hopefully, the range of swatches will help show off how the light affects the pigment. They’ve all been taken in indirect partially-cloudy sunlight, and the last photo was taken with flash.

    Actually, I am mildy disappointed because I thought that the entire post was going to be dedicated to Anderson Cooper. The pigment is gorgeous, though but the name is utterly misleading. :/

    HAHAHA I love those last two pictures :P The color is gorgeous, but the finish is just…insane. I thought it was a gel/cream shadow at first, especially in that third set of swatches.

    LOL I scroll down the post and see Anderson Cooper! HAWT! I just wish he would switch sides then all would be great! :p

  4. It does look wet/foiled, even when it's dry – gorgeous! And the creature, it's so fuzzy looking! :D

  6. Anderson Cooper was such a hilarious touch….I laughed out loud because I didn't expect him to be part of a "silver lavender fox" makeup post… He is hot though….too bad he bats on the other side…

    Awwwwww, look at the foxy woxy! It's so cute! (Although I'm horrified that some people keep them as pets. Wild animals such as foxes, wolves, et cetera deserve to stay WILD. Yes, I know there was a movie called The Fox and the Hound. I own it. I even cried the first billion times I watched it. It does NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD DOMESTICATE A FOX. /End of rant. It ruffles my fur to see people make wild animals pets.)

    I still say that color reminds me of a nail polish color I had when I was younger. Just sayin'.
