my first TSS piggies

i've been intrigued with The She Space pigments for the longest time and about five weeks ago, i was able to put my very first order with them. i got 6 pigments in total - Powdered Diamond Dust line. to be honest, the anticipation almost killed me because the description of the colors were exciting. boy was i wrong that i will reorder - i think this will be my last order with them. :-( you'll know why in a bit.

in case you can't make it out, the date encircled in red says March 11. they sent it to me 4 weeks after i ordered it, a week later than their promised 3 weeks. *sigh* take note, i got this yesterday so the actual shipment only took 1 week to Singapore. this is one of the reasons why i won't be a repeat customer. Aromaleigh sent me my eyeshadows in less than 10 days i've ordered them previously and that was when i was residing in Manila, which has a pretty shitty postal service. moving on...

i appreciate that everything was packed in nicely and nothing spilled out. and oh yeah, they are now known as About Face Cosmetics. i like the former one better.

anyway, here is the sales pitch of the Powdered Diamond Dust line:

Have you ever walked past a jewelry counter and been stopped in your tracks by a gem-stone that just seemed to be alive? The twinkling stone seemed to take on a life of it's own, and out of the corner of your eye something made you turn your head. Well, imagine that subtle twinkling effect in a powder that when layered across lids and lash lines just seemed to dance. Each of the colors pictured below is created by layering a fabulous coated mica into a velvety black base, and the end result is simply dazzling. Perhaps you will choose to take your look from day to dinner and merely swipe a bit of these shades as a contour! Maybe you'll apply them with a dampened eye liner brush and create a stunning effect along your lash line. Basic colors reach a fever pitch as they are suddenly transformed into twinkling beams of light. Even if you tend to be senstive around your lash line, fear not. These are NOT created with any form of glitter, just a truly revolutionary new coated mica! For any woman who has ever wanted to really draw attention to her eyes, Diamond Dust Powder Pigments are a dazzling addition to any makeup bag!

Zelda's Revenge

Bubble and Burn


Lucky Charm

Shards of Glass

Stolen Soul

how can i resist not getting all of 'em?! OK, that was my mistake!

left to right: Lucky Charm (Violet Blue), Shards of Glass (Silver), Stolen Soul (Turquoise)

i suppose now you know why i HATE these pigments - they're all black! in the website pictures, i know that there is a black base but you can totally see the colored shimmer. i took a hundred shots yet i can't make the colors pop. what a bummer! now am stuck with 6 full sized black pigments. >_<

if there are any colors i like, it's only the Asylum and Lucky Charm because at least i can clearly make out their colors in person even if i can't capture it in camera. but the rest, was a huge disappoint - US$2.50 each.

if there's any consolation though, i do think this will make a great liner. but i won't need 6 3g jars of pigments for lining my eyes! T_T
