"This Little Piggy…" (Inglot Pigments)

I know…I need more pigments like I need more…ANYTHING!  But I L.O.V.E. Inglot's pigments enough that I just HAAAAD to have one.  And then another one…and then…(you get the picture).  They're vibrant, long-lasting, and I even managed to find colors that MAC doesn't have (at least that I haven't picked up).  There are still a couple on my "to-buy" list, but I started off with just 13 :)

The pigments are $14 each for 2g/.07 and, compared to MAC's pigments, they are a bit more expensive by the oz.  HOWEVER, with the upfront cost being only $14 (compared to MAC's $19.50) and considering the fact that one will RARELY use up either pigment, this isn't such a bad deal.

I love the design of the containers because I feel they are less prone to tip over because they aren't as skinny/tall as the MAC pigments.  I think the Inglot container feels so solid because it's about the same in width and height; the cylinder shape almost feels "square," if that makes any sense.  Also, the lid screws on more securely than with the MAC pigments.

Well…on to the swatches after the break!
