Everyone’s going mad for pigments right now! Personally, I find them a bit fiddly but they’re often so lustred that it’s worth the extra effort. Superdrug’s B range has brought out a collection of (vegan) pigments, some falling into the Cassie Lomas range and others in the standard B range. They’re what I would call ‘safe’ shades; mostly falling into the nude spectrum of shades (plus one mermaid colour!).
I’m still not over the NYX pigments not tipping out of the holes in the lid so it’s something I really look out for and as you can see, there is ample room for pigment fall when you tip the pot. Ideally, tip it onto a surface (a saucer or something) rather than the palm of your hand, especially if you’re adding a bit of water to up the intensity. I did try adding a tiny drop of water but I don’t think it really upped the colour level significantly.
You can see that you get plenty of gleam from them. Colours from bottom to top: Ziggy, Glamoflage, Its Them, Shine On, Supermodel Sheen.

Bottom to top: Indiego, Steel, (oops don’t know) and Olive La Vida Loca. The reason I’m a shade name missing is that colours are labelled only on the outer packaging and not once the pots are out of the box. I thought I had them all perfectly lined up and written down on a piece of paper… but clearly got lost!
This is Indiego with a drop of water added – there’s a gold shift to this that makes it ‘mermaidy’. Don’t think of these as just eye shades – if you’re all out of glow powder, tip some pigment into the palm of your hand and run a fluffy brush over them before applying to cheeks or wherever you want to. They’re £6.99 each HERE.
