Making Up the Midwest: Swatchfest: Naked Cosmetics Color ...The first time I had ever heard of naked cosmetics was in watching someone use the Ivory stack in a youtube tutorial. It was love at first sight. I knew that when I approached the booth at IMATS, I wasn't leaving without it.
Much like the quality of the other two stacks I have, Ivory's pigments are smooth, and finely ground despite having some serious shimmery goodness. While they don't look like much in the pot, when they are swatched they reveal a hint of color and, when swatched over a colored base, they reveal a split personality. Much like the other stack I reviewed, Java , these pigments can be used on the face, eyes, lips, hair, and nails. The opitime of versatility.
Also like the other stacks, however, is the inability to stay strong for more than a few hours without a base. Honestly, I don't hold this against them because I never go without some sort of eyeshadow base. But, for those who don't, it's something to know.
Now, let's get to what every makeup hound wants: the swatches.
All products reviewed on this site were paid for by me (unless explicitly stated otherwise). All pictures and content are original unless otherwise noted and cited. I am not a certified cosmetologist, nor have I had any training in cosmetology (cosmology, however, is a different story). I'm just college girl going to school in the Midwest sharing what she has come to know, from experience, about all things beauty.
