Smokey Brown Eyes & Pigment Swatch/Review

Leave a Comment
After attending the Peaches & Cream masterclass and popup shop a few weeks ago (which you can read about here), I decided to have a play around with their pigments to create this smokey brown eye look with a metallic liner.

OK, so first off, let me just say that these pigments are fantastic! I have a range of mat and shimmer shades and all of them are gorgeous. In terms of pigmentation, I give them a 10/10 score!

The shades that I used in my makeup look are as follows:

  • Nude
  • Disco
  • Wish
  • Luxe
I did a swatch of those on the back of my arm for you to unprimed skin- I think the colour payoff is brilliant and when a primer is applied, they are really bold!

I used Disco as a metallic silver eyeliner by mixing a small amount with my Illamasqua sealing gel and it worked perfectly.

What I love about them along with the fact that they are super duper easy to blend out, is that they can be gradually built up so if you just wanted a sheer wash of the shade on your eyes, then all you need to do is pop the tiniest amount on your brush and tap it on.

If you wanted it slightly more opaque, then dab a little on with your finger and pat it over your lid and if you want it full on dramatic, then pop some concealer or primer over the area and dab it on with a flat shader brush.

Other Products I used:

  • Peaches & Cream lashes in number 12
  • Peaches & Cream lip gloss in Babe
  • Arbonne Perfecting liquid foundation in Fair
  • Crownbrush UK 10 colour concealer Palette
  • NYX Mat bronzer in Medium
  • Illamasqua Sealing Gel
  • MAC Fix+ Spray
  • N.O 7 Mascara
  • MAC Gel Liner in Blacktrack
I have almost got the full collection of pigments and I keep finding more uses for them! For example, I discovered that the shade Pearl appears white in the tub but comes out a sheer, shimmery, pinky tone and it is GORGEOUS when used as a highlighter!

You can find these pigments and glosses on the Peaches & Cream website and also on
