Unique Pigments: A Review/Swatches

I first heard of Unique Pigments when I hosted a Team Pink Eye giveaway that featured their products, back in October. After checking out the site and products I decided to place an order — not just to try out the products, but also to thank them for their Team Pink Eye support.

:::  THE SPECS  :::

Unique Pigments sells on Artfire {HERE}, and their shop includes loose eyeshadows and hair accessories {primarily eyeshadows though}. For $4.50 you get one 5-gram jar with a sifter, or you can opt for one of their custom collections. Shipping to the U.S. is $2.75 for the first item and $0.05 for each additional item. Shipping to Canada is $5.00 with no additional charges, and International shipping is $6.00 with no additional charges. I received my items about 7 business days after placing the order. *Note: At the time of my order, samples in clamshells were being offered. I don't see sample listings in their shop at the moment, but I'm not sure if they're gone for good or otherwise.
I didn't have to contact the seller for any reason after ordering, but I've heard the customer service is good. My order included an extra little goodie — the Susan G. Komen pin — and an extra clamshell sample in Nuke 'Em High.

 :::  THE OPINIONS  :::

As mentioned in one of the picture captions, Blurple is one of my favorites. I also love Chaitastic as a great neutral with a sassy appeal. I had no problem working with any of these colors; little to no fall-out, blendable and easy to build up the color for a more opaque look. I have no complaints whatsoever!

Stay Fabulous!
