Pigments have always had a special place in my heart. I discovered really cheap formulas when I was in middle school but they were absolutely the best. Back in the day, the drugstore just didn’t have very many good eyeshadows. Discovering pigments opened up so many options. Granted…I probably should’ve have been allowed to rock baby blue metallics as much as I did…but that is in the past. Today I’m talking about the Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder Pigments– they’re incredibly stunning & the formula is pretty flawless. Keep reading to see all my shades!
Star Lit Powder is an ultra-radiant, ultra-fine loose powder that is used to highlight your best features. Perfect for the eyes, cheeks, and lips, this multi-faceted formula includes Pure Mother of Pearl to add light-catching color and shine unlike any other. The micronized ingredient technology allows for ease of application that can be applied wet or dry, to customize coverage intensity and luminosity. It features eight shimmering shades that range from neutral to dark.
Each pigment comes in a plastic jar with a circle stopper. I really like this better than a sifter!!! I often put my brush into the lid to disperse the product a bit. I wanted to show that in a photo- you can really see the colors over black! You get 2.7 grams of product in each jar which will last anyone a very long time!

Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder Pigment in #5 Frozen Purple– a shifty white that shows up metallic purple with a touch of fuchsia in certain light.
Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder Pigment in #12 Copper– a brightened medium copper metallic.
Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder Pigment in #13 Ivory– an eye-catching ivory neutral metallic.
Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder Pigment in #15 Golden Pink– a brightened ballet pink with a touch of gold in a metallic finish.
Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder Pigment in #19 Ultramarine– a brightened, medium cobalt blue metallic.
There are actually 2 more shades: #27 Gunmetal & #28 Anthracite Black but I don’t have those quite yet!
I found these shades to be cohesive across the board so I’m going to cover that right here! All of these shades start out more sheer but blendable. You can reach opacity dry with a bit of building over a primer but honestly…a damp brush gets you there immediately! Every shade is incredibly silky & so smooth- a rarity in something so glamorously sparkly. I’ve used the two frozen shades on my cheeks & definitely needed to use a light hand! I’ve also used them over lipsticks with gorgeous results!
