As I’ve reviewed some of the suppliers of my eye pigments already, I thought it only fair to introduce you to my collection 🙂

Unfortunately due to the limitations of WordPress (or my inability to optimise very well) the picture isn’t that clear, which is a shame, but you get the idea. As you can see, I’m a bit of a horder. This image was taken yesterday but I was halfway through decanting some new samples, so although you can see 19 stacks here (each holding 6 pigments so…. quick mental calculation makes that 116 pigments) there are now 22 stacks in total, and I’m currently awaiting more samples from Archetype Cosmetics. My collection ranges from mineral pigments from Fyrinnae, Archetype Cosmetics, MAD Minerals, and Taylor Made Minerals to NYX loose shadows, Barry M Dazzle Dusts and other loose shadows from companies such as Hennes/H&M, Bourjois and Claire’s Accessories.

Their homes are these lovelty retro vanity bags that I picked up in Primark, my personal shopping heaven, for a mere £3 each. As you can see from the pic, as well as the main body of the bag there is a little top section with a fold-down mirror where you could also keep things such as makeup brushes. The bag is just the right height to keep the stacking jars upright, which, unfortunately, is a must to avoid mess. (more…)
