Illamasqua Androgen Cream Pigment : a summer multi tasking hero

One of the products that appealed to me the most at the preview of the Illamasqua Theatre of the Nameless collection was the Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Androgen. Probably because Mikele (one of the MUAs at Illamasqua) was wearing it on his lids and cheeks and he looked so damn gorgeous.

I must admit I squee-ed a little when I saw Androgen in my event goody bag.

price: 44 AUD  (Australian rrp)  24 USD (US RRP)

availability: Illamasqua counters worldwide, Sephora , www.illamasqua.com

Androgen Cream Pigment is a multitasking hero, and is made to be used anywhere on the face.

 

To read my review and see the FOTD, keep reading after the jump! 

 

Colour

It’s a super pigmented bright pink coral that is almost fluorescent when worn opaque, but becomes a beautiful, wearable, peach when sheered out.

Texture

Androgen Cream Pigment has quite a hard texture in the pan with very little slip for a cream product- almost like clay. When applied on the skin it dries completely matte and will not budge.

Performance

I was so impressed with how well it lasted on my oil lids without fading or creasing- it outperforms MAC paint pots on my lids. It works beautifully on the cheeks as well giving a lit within glow that has good lasting power for a cream product (most cream products disappear off my face if I so much as walk up a flight of stairs)

Androgen doesn’t work so well on my lips though. It was simply too drying for me, but may play nice with your lips.
