alverde Color & Care Mix Your Makeup Pigments

1/12/2017


Natural makeup has impressed me so much over the years and I find that these two alverde products have become an absolute staple in my collection. I'm not the one to say that anyone needs something but I bet every makeup bag would benefit from having at least one of these to customize that everyday face uniform.

alverde Color & Care Mix Your Makeup Pigments (20ml | 2.95 €) are such clever things as we all have a foundation shade (or two) too light or too dark. Personally, I do use a few foundations richer and warmer in tone during summer which formula I adore yet that summery color doesn't suit me during winter. And that's where the alverde pigment in Light comes into play. I'm loyal to my Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream but the color seems to differ from my neck now that I'm paler. I add a drop of the Light pigment and my Bourjois CC cream transforms into shade that's perfect.

I find that this creamy pigment doesn't alter the undertone of my CC cream or any foundation I've mixed it with. The texture might become a touch thicker and you even get better coverage but longevity isn't affected and neither is the finish - unless you use a classic matte foundation, in which case the mattifying effect can get downplayed a bit. I have noticed that it nourishes the skin, making it appear a bit softer and smooth but my skin hasn't become any oilier - it doesn't add the oil. 

alverde pigment in Dark is of a thinner texture and of a sheer finish - not as creamy or thick as the lighter pigment. It is warm in undertone but creates a custom color equally well as its lighter counterpart. I would, however, use it more as a liquid bronzer -  it reminds me of Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronzing Tint (minus the shimmer). It can warm up the face if applied where you'd usually apply bronzer and it can darken the shade of foundation equally well. It's quite brilliant - actually, they both are!

  • Kozmetika prirodnih sastojaka me iz godine u godinu oduševljava a ova dva alverde proizvoda sam toliko zavoljela da su postali sastavni dio mog nesesera za svakodnevnu šminku. Inače nisam sklona da bilo kome govorim da mu nešto treba ali vjerujem da bi barem jedan od naredna dva proizvoda koristio svakom neseseru. Svakako da pomaže u "krojenju" šminke prema vlastitim potrebama.
  • alverde Color & Care Mix Your Makeup pigmenti (20ml | cca 7KM) su tako pametno napravljeni i dosta primjenjivi jer svaka od nas sigurno ima barem jedan puder koji je nijansu (nekad i dvije) pretaman ili previše svijetao. Ja koristim par pudera koji su bogatijeg i toplijeg podtona te su mi odgovarajući tokom ljeta i potpuno sam zadovoljna njihovom kvalitetom, performansama ali - nijansa mi ne odgovara tokom zime. I upravo tu u priču ulazi alverde pigment nijanse Light. Velika sam ljubiteljica Bourjois 123 Perfect CC kreme i voljela bih je koristiti tokom cijele godine no, sada mi vrat odudara i bijel je spram lica kada je nosim. U nju dodam kap do dvije alverde svijetlog pigmenta koji transformiše moju Bourjois ljubimicu u meni prilagođenu nijansu kože.
  • Primjetila sam da ovaj kremasti pigment ne izmijeni podton moje CC kreme, niti bilo kojeg pudera sa kojim sam ga miješala. Doduše, čini teksturu malo gušćom i čak pojača prekrivanje ali ne utiče na trajnost niti završnicu - osim ako ne koristite klasične mat pudere, u čijem slučaju će pigment oslabiti matirajuće svojstvo. Pigment djeluje njegujuće na kožu, omekša je i zagladi ali ne dodaje ulja i ne čini kožu masnijom.
  • alverde pigment nijanse Dark je rijeđe teksture i prozračnije, blago sjajne završnice - nije kremast niti gust kao svijetli pigment. Toplog je podtona ali jednako dobro može transformisati puder poput svijetlog pigmenta, ovog puta potamniti ga. Ja ga najviše volim koristiti u svrhu tečnog bronzera i jako me podsjeća na Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronzing Tint (samo bez sjajnih čestica). Lijepo "utopli" lice kada ga nanesete na mjesta gdje inače koristite bronzer ali je jednako dobar i u potamnjivanju pudera. Genijalan je, ma oba pigmenta su!

  2. Imala sam ovu Dark verziju, no moje žute pudere je neutralizirao, a čim nešto bude neutralno, na mojoj koži to izgleda rozo xD Pa sam ga nažalost morala proslijediti dalje :(

    1. Pretpostavila sam da hladnom podtonu kože ne bi odgovarao kao potamnjivač. Ovisi koliko ti je hladan podton, ako iole naginje ka neutralnom možda je mogao biti iskorišten kao tečni bronzer?

    1. I ja sam mogla mnoge pudere bolje iskoristiti da sam ranije otkrila ove pigmente - znala sam da postoje skuplje verzije drugih brendova ali nisam bila spremna da izdvojim više novca za njih. Zato su mi ovi baš "legli" em zbog učinkovitosti, em zbog cijene :)
