The She Space Mineral Pigment Haul

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 23 - 2009

Heather over at The She Space/About Face Cosmetics had a blowout sale in honour of turning the big 4-0! (Happy Birthday!)

How could I not take advantage with full size eyeshadow pigments reduced down to $2.50 each?

I went for mainly wintery shades that work well on my cool skin:

Aren’t they beautiful?

Stand out shades are: Female Soldiers…, Inspired Meltdown, Anybody Seen Erin, Touched By Truth.

Those 4 blow me away by how achingly beautiful and unique they are.

Driven by Instinct was described as a “smoky purple shimmer” but unfortunately, it just looks blue on my skin.  A lovely shade nonetheless, but blues don’t really suit me.

Shipping time from The She Space is *always* slowwww.  I ordered on 20th October and it took very nearly a full month to arrive.

Are you into your pigments?  I’m hoping to press these when my pans arrive from Hong Kong – I don’t know how they’ll turn out, but I’ll share my method and results!

The She Space Holiday sale has now kicked in and full size pigments are reduced to $3.50 each from $4.50.

Have a great Monday xx

    I’ve got a huge load of She Space pigments and shipping has always been slow. I ordered this weekend and I know it’ll be well into December before I see it but her pigments are just so beautiful and unique that I don’t mind too much! You chose some gorgeous shades.

    Beautiful! I have never heard of that site, but I probably shouldn’t open Pandora’s Box (the link, that is) until I get paid.

    Gemma did some pigment pressing over the weekend, she did a tutorial here if you want to compare techniques – http://www.londonbeautyreview.com/2009/11/how-to-pigment-pressing.html

  6. @Leanne – It is just a bit too slow isn’t it? 2 weeks is fine.. but getting on for a month, geez the time drags!
