I never heard of I Make You Beautiful (IMYB) until I went to The Makeup Show last year. It’s a small brand created by celeb makeup artist Danessa Myricks. I’m a sucker for pigments and pretty colors so these caught my eye. This set and the Ultimate Paradise set was on sale for $50. 24 pigments for $50?! I couldn’t pass it up.
At first glance they look like regular colors you’ve seen before but when I swatched them that’s when I really fell in love. 4 are straight glitter and one has no glitter/shimmer to it. The rest of them are pure love. They apply completely different how they look in the jar. The glitter looks kind of chunky on the swatches but when they are applied on the eye it’s more subtle and even. These are some of my most favorite pigments and I love them just as much as my MAC ones.
You can apply wet or dry. I applied them wet on my arm because I didn’t use a base and the glitter showed more. If you apply them dry they are more true to what you see in the jar. All are long-lasting and do not crease if used over a good base. You can also use them as a liner.
These shades aren’t sold separately so you have to get the set of 12. There are sets of 6 but I’m not sure if they have any of the above shades in them because they don’t have names. The Ruby Royale Kit is $75. That may seem expensive but you do get 12 full size jars. Just as much as MAC in fact and MAC pigments are $21 each so 12 would cost $252 so $75 for this set is a deal.
