Review + FOTD: Illamasqua Bedaub Cream Pigment

Hello lovelies! I hope you are all well <3
I am extremely happy for some reason today! And I am even more happy because I will finally be able to post a look with the Illamasqua cream pigment I purchased a while back.

Curious on my initial reaction of this product? Check that post HERE

Price and Availability
$24 at selected Sephora stores, or on Sephora online. You can also purchase from Illamasquq counters, or Illamasqua online.

Product Review

Let me make this easier and just breakit down into pros and cons~

~Unique product. There isn't any other matte cream shadows that I know of.
~Extremely pigmented, thus why it is a "cream pigment" and not a "creme shadow."
~The color is also very unique! A minty green~
~Multi-purpose product. You can use them for anything, really. Eyes, lips, cheeks, face, body, and hair.
~Easy to blend and very to apply
~This is not dry at all. It is super creamy and smooth.
~This will last you a pretty long time since a little product goes a long way

~Will be expensive for some people, I hesitated to buy this because of the price
~It is prone to creasing, so make sure to use both a primer and a powder to set it
(Or an eyeshadow or loose pigment)

Overall, I am very happy with this product. This color is not the most versatile color, but I do love it. I am considering getting another cream pigment because I love the formula and versatility of the actual product. I recommend this to people who love cream products, or people who love multi-tasking products. 

Rating: 8.5/10
Recommend? Yes~
Repurchase? I would not repurchase this color, because I can't use it for too many things (I use it as an eyeshadow and as a color corrector for redness), but I would purchase a couple other colors :D


 Let me tell you guys a little background for this look. I was wearing this today as a liner on my upper lash line when I went to school. I arrived home and did  what I usually do: check blogger and other blogs. I always look at because I love the looks that Leesha does. It is funny because she did a look inspired by Nicki Minaj's makeup at the VMAs. She used a liner similar in color to Bedaub and I loved the recreation that she did.
I should mention, I hate Nicki Minaj. I like her makeup and clothes sometimes, but I hate her music. But I loved the look that Leesha did, so that is why I decided to try it out. I will say I am replicating the look that Leesha did, and am by no means doing a Nicki Minaj inspired look! ;D

Products Used:

~ELF Eyelid Primer
~Illamasqua Bedaub Creme Pigment
~Artistry Translucent powder
~Wet N Wild Vanity Palette
~Yanquina Volumizer mascara
~MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
~Kat Von D Tattoo concealer
~Skin79 BB Cream
~Artistry Translucent powder

How to Achieve this Look: Head over to Leesha's page and you can see a video on how to do it! :D

*I should mention that In some picture the pigment is going to look cakey. I had applied my eye makeup like normal and I applied this new mascara. Unfortunately I got a bunch of smudges of mascara on my eyelid and it messed up my eye makeup. I went over everything to get rid of the mascara smudges, but since I had applied powder over the cream pigment already, when I reapplied the pigment it made it a little bit cakey. So excuse that. I will include some pictures of before I re-applied the pigment, but I will have some mascara smudges >_<"
See how it looks cakey? T_T Nancy is a sad Panda.
See the smudges?? T_T

Okay, cam whoring time~

"Use the FORCE!" ;D I was thinking that!~

When I make this face, I get an odd chin dimple. Do you see it? Haha. 

 Why do I do that with my pinky?!! I have it extended outwards in most of these pics.
I really like this look! It is not something I would normally wear, but I thank Leesha for her post.
If you guys have any request, don't be shy to tell me ^_~
 Thank you all for reading and commenting :D I appreciate all your support and love!

    That's cool you have friends here in Escondido. Hope you get to visit them often. :) I envy you that you live up North. You guys have better weather up there. I can imagine there would be so much traffic at the Golden Gate. Especially on a workday. The two times we saw the bridge, there was heavy fog surrounding it.
