Let me be the first to say, had Whip Hand not come into my life I would not have given loose pigment shadows a second glance. I thought what most think: They are messy and hard to work with. Sure, I have a set of loose pigments and glitters that I purchased from iMATS 2012 but the products I chose were not exactly your every day shades. I like my makeup to be more avant-garde than natural but even I want to wear a traditional chocolate eye every now and then!!
