Ok, so I had a bit of a quiet night last night and decided to press the rest of my pigments. I don’t have many, but I thought that I might reach for them a bit more if they were in a pan rather than having loose eye shadow all over the place! I always would have used a brush with Fix + sprayed on it, but hopefully now I wont have to.
To press my Barry M pigments I used Lipglossiping’s pressing method, It works amazingly well! All of my pressed dazzle dusts look so pigmented and pretty! But I will let pictures do the talking 😉
These took forever to dry, hence why they don’t look exactly like a pressed pigment should really look like. I wanted to go to bed at some stage! But I pressed them the best I could 🙂
In order of picture:
24 Old Gold 78 Kingfisher
80 Blue Grey 72 Emerald
And a swatch of each:
They look gorgeous right!? I love them so much! I have ordered 3 more off ebay, so hopefully they will come soon and I will get to show you a few more!
I also tried to press my MAC pigment, Heritage Rouge… It didnt turn out the greatest…
Its ok, but just doesn’t feel as nice on the skin like the Barry M pressing method. I will use less of the mixing medium I think next time I do this.
How many of you do this? Do you find it works well for you?
p.s. The palette was ordered off ebay from Hong Kong, it is a palette of 26 and comes with the pans. Its not magnetised, but I find a bit of sellotape works just as well 😉 for around £5 you cant go wrong!
