Bodyography Luster Lux Glitter Pigments

The four new eye colors of this collection are launching October 2015 and feature a one-of-a-kind technology that incorporates the saturation of a loose pigment with the cushion of a cream and the silkiness of a powder, all with a beautiful high glitter and pearl finish. The pigments have an exclusive gel technology that gives them a gel/wet type of cushion texture, though they apply like a powder pigment. The percentage of pearl and pigment in this formula is what gives Luster Lux such a prismatic metallic effect.
