Christina Cosmetics “Perfect Pigment” Reviews

I saw Christina Cosmetics Perfect Pigment make-up advertised on TV last night and they claim it doesn’t cause breakouts. They don’t have the ingredients listed on there though and they don’t have an e-mail address to request the ingredients listings. They claim it’s 100% natural minerals. It sure looked great on the infomercial, but then doesn’t everything look great on infomercials?

  1. I succumbed and ordered the Perfect Pigment kit in light. It has a 30-day money back guarantee and if you don’t like the palette you can return it and keep the lip gloss and the concealor. You lose the shipping and handling though which was like $7.95 plus whatever it costs to mail it back, plus of course the time to package it and send it back. It just looked so good in the demonstrations and the women seemed sincere in their testimonials. Many of the women on the infommerical had acne and scarring. They claim that it’s 100% natural minerals and non-acnegenic, but who knows. I’ll report back when I get it.

  2. I ordered Perfect Pigment one week ago and still have not received it. Anyone else having problems? I’m anxious to see how it works!

  3. I received my Perfect Pigment two days ago. I am amazed at the coverage and am still getting the hang of its usage. Overall, I’m very happy. The only concern I have is staying power. I haven’t seen how it holds up after a full days work or play. I’ll post more after I’ve had more experience. It really does cover everything though!

  4. I called their customer service number and found out that the order hadn’t gone through because of my debit card changing over from Visa to MasterCard. They had waited some days to actually process the debit because it was on backorder and they don’t actually charge the customer’s account until they ship it. Anyway, I gave her my new debit card number and it should get here in 7-10 days.

  5. So was anybody else as irritated as I was with the “bait and switch” of the price? The infomercials and the website boasts only $24.95 plus s & h, but on the website it’s actually 2 payments of $24.95. When calling their (regular) phone number, it is verified that it is indeed almost $50 for the makeup. Heck, I probably would have still ordered it for that $ (I use Jane Iredale at twice that price) If they would only be up front from the beginning,. But I hate it when they do these little additional hidden costs. Do they really think we’re that stupid? (gullible, yes. but not stupid)

  6. That’s a common infommercial ploy these days. You can tell when they say “You can try it for only $?” rather than saying you can buy it for that price. I don’t care for that tactic either but I’m clued in now on the wording that they all use so that I can tell when it’s really just a partial first payment and I always ask when I call what the full price is. I agree, it’s borderline unethical and it does kind of make me suspicious and resentful also, but it does have a moneyback guarantee and I don’t think they charge the second payment until 30 days after they ship out the product or something like that. I feel pretty confident that I can trust them to return my money if I return the product and they let you keep the lip gloss and I think maybe the concealor also as a gift even if you return the other stuff. They didn’t charge my account until they were actually ready to ship out the product, which I feel shows good faith and good ethics.

    The thing that also bothers me is when they say “no risk moneyback guarantee”. There is a risk involved. There’s always the risk that the company is dishonest, for one thing, and won’t return your money. There’s also the shipping both ways which you have to pay for regardless, as most companies don’t usually reimburse you for shipping costs either way. Then there’s always the hassle of having to re-package it, contact them for a Return Authorization Number, go to the post office, etc. It can take an hour of your time with all that.

  7. Ive been using christinas perfect pigment for about 1 or 2 months now. I also had to wait for awhile before I recieved it. I had to call customer service and reorder it. The whole process didnt seem very professional. It all seemed so weird to me. I finally recieved it and I liked it in the beginning. I use proactiv (which I love) but I hadnt had any while I was using the makeup. I broke out really bad and knew part of the reason was I wasnt using proactiv. I am using proactiv again and it helped out alot. Im still breaking out and Im starting to think that it is the perfect pigment. I wont be buying this makeup anymore. I wish I’d done more research on it before I wasted $60!

  8. Uh-oh, that doesn’t bode well TJO.

    I just received my Perfect Pigment today and tried it on. I haven’t watched the DVD yet because I haven’t set up my new DVD player yet (it was given to me as a gift and I have to hook up an adaptor). I have to say upon just using it once that it does live up to the infommercial in terms of convenience and coverage and it is a flattering, attractive make-up. It also feels very light on the skin, very breathable — I don’t feel any awareness of having make-up on my skin at all. My only complaint is that my skin feels a little dry, but maybe I just need to use more face cream underneath it as a base.

    It came with a tube of concealor and a tube of lip gloss also. I was afraid to use the concealor on my acne-prone areas because they didn’t include any ingredients lists for the concealor or the lip gloss. I used the concealor under my eyes only and I used some of the light shade powder in the palette for concealor on the red spots. The lip gloss doesn’t have a lot of color to it — just a light tint — but it’s nice. I was surprised that mixing those different colors onto the brush ended up blending into my skin tone so nicely. (I have fair skin.) The blush color in the palette is pretty subtle and natural looking, maybe a little too subtle for evening. I don’t understand how that big fat brush can be used to apply shadow to one’s eye lids though. I tried to retract the brush in and use just the very edge of it like they showed on the infommercial but it wasn’t working for me. I guess I need to watch the DVD. I really like the idea of using the compact and brush for traveling because it really is very convenient and quick to apply. Here are the compact ingredients for the fair kit:

    mica, octyldodecyl lactate, dimethicone, caprylic/capric triglyceride, zinc stearate, isotridecyl isononanoate, polymethyl methacrylate, calcium starch octenylsuccinate, silica, phenoxyethanol. May Contain: iron oxides, titanium dioxide, carmine, red 30 lake, ultramarines, manganese violet.

    The link to the list of ingredients graded by how comedogenic they are is: http://www.zerozits.com/Articles/acnedetect.htm . The grading is from 0 to 5, with 5 being the worst grade (most pore-clogging). Only one of the Perfect Pigment ingredients appears on the zerozits list as being a possible problem, which is “red 30 lake”. The zerozits list has “D & C Red #30” graded as a “3” — I don’t know if these two names refer to the same ingredient or not. Even though mica and silica are not on the zerozits list, there was a paramedical esthetician who told me that mica, silica and talc were bad for acne. I don’t know if this information is backed up by scientific evidence or not though. I don’t know where she heard that. I haven’t seen any studies about that anywhere. The make-up does contain a lot more chemicals than I normally would be comfortable with but I just haven’t found natural make-ups that I’m totally satisfied with yet. The Earth’s Beauty make-up is really pure but it doesn’t cover very well. Hopefully with the creams underneath, the make-up won’t absorb into the skin too much nor cause break outs. I am compromising my “natural and pure” philosophy somewhat to use this make-up. As it does say on their website, though, in the FAQ section:

    IS IT A MINERAL MAKEUP?

    Yes. We use 100 percent natural minerals that come from the earth and other sources in nature. Perfect Pigment does not contain talc, parabens, corn starch, or irritating ingredients.

    At least it’s not quite as bad, ingredients-wise, as most of the make-ups found in drugstores.

  9. 😕 I was a little disturbed that when the infomercial said the cost was $24.95, they didn’t specify that it was 2 payments. Then when i went to the website, it too said 2 payments of $24.95 and the total came out to about $60. I was kind of excited and anxious to try this product, however, when it finally came to the true cost and amount, it was a big turn off and i didn’t want to get the product after i heard that. I don’t like it when these kind of products that are sold get misrepresented by the price, also trying to find the website was difficult as well. I haven’t ordered this product yet, but from reading the info from others i am a little hesistant to get it, if the shipping will take that long.[/quote][/b]

  10. Yeah, heyngirl, we discussed above in this thread how we don’t like the bait and switch tactic with the half payment and not mentioning the full price on the infommercial. Unfortunately, that’s a real common selling technique on infommercials these days. It is tacky and misleading. On the other hand, if you decide to return the product, you can call them and cancel the second payment. I don’t know of any department store where you can pay half of the price of a product, take it home and try it out and then if you don’t like it return it and get your money back.

    The reason it took so long for my order to reach me was because I had switched from a Visa to a MasterCard. The bank advised me to close down my Visa card because of a weird bogus charge for 98 cents that had appeared on there. This bogus charge occurred way before I ever called Perfect Pigment — I tracked it down to another company that I had purchased from in the past. In the interim between my ordering the kit and the date they were ready to ship it to me, the card number I had given them was no longer valid. As soon as I gave them my new card number it came to me within like 4 days.

    I’ve worn the make-up for just 3 days now and so far so good. My skin has actually cleared up more. I had a couple of little breakouts on my left cheek which have shrunk down flat. My skin also feels very soft and smooth, not dry at all. I really like this make-up so far, but only time will tell if my skin stays clear on it. I just wish the ingredients were more natural though.

  11. I spoke with customer service at Christina Cosmetics and she told me that the concealor was non-comedogenic and fine to use on acne-prone areas to cover blemishes. She told me that she would e-mail me the ingredients listings for the lip gloss and the concealor. I don’t want to just take her word on the concealor being acne-safe — I want to check it against the zerozits.com list myself. My skin is still totally clear. I’m very happy with the products.

  12. I have a big infected pimple on my left cheek now. It could be because I skipped washing my face a couple of times and also went a bit off of my diet, but I think I’m going to play it safe and return the Perfect Pigment and order the Earth’s Beauty make-up instead. I love the convenience and coverage of the Perfect Pigment but it does contain chemicals and Red 30 Lake which is a chemical dye which could be problematic for acne and also might even be carcinogenic. They claimed it contained “all natural pigments” but it doesn’t. I’d better stick with the natural stuff — it’s just safer. I just wish the coverage was better though. I’ve been using my La Bella Donna foundation powder to cover the spots and then using the Earth’s Beauty all over my face on top of that. That way at least I’m only getting a small amount of bismuth and titanium dioxide, both of which I’ve read bad things about. I don’t feel that the La Bella Donna mineral powder breaks me out but I’ve read that the titanium and bismuth could be bad for the body when absorbed into the system (carcinogenic). Also, the titanium dioxide does tend to dry the skin out and I think perhaps that mica does too. I want to stop experimenting around and just stick with something already. This is a pain.

  13. I ordered Perfect Pigment from Christina Cosmetics a few weeks ago. Let me tell you it is not worth it! The conceler is terrible – completely cakey, and pronounced any wrinkle I placed over. The powder made my skin break out immediately.

    SAVE YOUR MONEY!!

  14. I, like alot of you, suffer from acne….its better now that I am older. Unfortunately, all of my children suffer from it…my son is the worse…and he doesnt wear makeup. I am trying the purfect pigment to see if I like it or not…it is expensive….I ordered it for my 16 year old daughter….we will see. She also uses Proactive….has fairly good results….she still has a few breakouts….mostly hormonal I think. A word of advice…..any make up you use will break you out if you do not CLEANSE YOUR SKIN!

    That is the most important thing you can do….dont over dry though…sometimes that can be worse depending on the kind of acne you have. My son sees a dermatologist….Proactive does not work for him… It did for a while but the acne is worse than before and a different kind.

    From 40 years of experience…and trying everything…over the counter and not….be patient…cleanse your skin…use your meds……use minimal makeup……drink tons of water and take your vitamins…..along with trying to eat as healthy as you can. This will help any other efforts you are trying.

    Another really good non paraben, non talc make up is Bare Escentuals….bare minerals make up….it may not be as concealing as some…but is far better for your skin….you have to WASH it off…I dont care what they tell you! Take your time and learn to use your concealer …you will be far happier with mineral makeups…it takes time to master.

    To better skin and happier, fulfilling lives…..have a great day!

  15. I have been using the Perfect Pigment for three weeks now and I really like it. The concealer works really well for me and with the palette it covers everything very well. My only complaint is that three of the colors are almost gone! I am on the bimonthly plan and won’t get another one until June. That’s about five weeks from now! After spending that much and being satisfied with the product, it’s a shame that it doesn’t last the full two months. It is just too expensive to buy “in between” deliveries. Any suggestions?

  16. jjohn10e, you could just use the Perfect Pigment for foundation and not use it for contouring, blush, etc., but then that kind of defeats the whole convenience of it. I really did like it a lot and I’m not sure whether the breakout was from that or from my slipping up on my routine.

    Re Bare Minerals, I used to use Bare Escentuals which is another name for the same thing I’m pretty sure. This one paramedical aesthetician told me that mica is bad for acne (Perfect Pigment has mica also) though but I haven’t seen it on other lists as being bad. I couldn’t find a good color in the Bare Escentuals for my skin and I also found it to be too much on the sparkly side for me. It looks nice on other people though. I used La Bella Donna foundation powder for a long time — I like the finish (not sparkly) and it didn’t break me out and they have a very good color for my skin tone (“Nicoletta”). As I’m getting older now though I want to wear something that isn’t quite as drying. I would really like to find a nice cream or cream to powder type compact. It gives the skin such a nice soft look. I absolutely loved how AnneMarie Borlind’s compact make-up foundation looked on me but it has something comedogenic in it and it broke me out bad. I wish I could find something like that that had all safe ingredients.

  17. I’ve been using perfect pigment for a few months and although I love it in spite of its price (think about how small this disk is for $60). If you want to reorder just the disk no brush no concealer no lip gloss, how do you do it and how much is it then? I’m almost out?

  18. I made the mistake of ordering these products. They double ordered and double charged me. The light color was too light so I tried to exchange one of the kits for the darker one. First they told me I didn’t have to send back the one I wanted to exchange but that they’d just send me a new one. After a month I called and they said that I was told wrong and that I had to send the one back to exchange. I did immediately. Then after a month of waiting I called again and they said they had received my shipment and that they were sending out the new one. A couple of weeks later I got a package that contained 2 used compacts of the darker makeup. I had sent them a complete unused product package. I called them again and they told me to send those back and they’d send me a complete unused package. They gave me a ship date and told me it would take 10-14 business days to get it to me, which is rediculous because it only takes 2 days to get stuff between El Segundo, CA and here. Well, now it’s 14 business days and it still isn’t here. This is a terrible company. The makeup is no better than the other mineral makeups around so shop elsewhere. 🙁 :

  19. Oh geeze, Lotus, what a mess. I can’t believe that they actually sent you used compacts. That is just totally bizarre. I hope that the double charge didn’t cause your bank account to become overdrawn. That’s really awful. I’ve got to get on the stick and send mine back right away. I hope they actually refund me for it. I did like the make-up but I did get one bad infected zit, which is kind of unusual for me these days, and I thought it might be the make-up. Oh, who knows. The Red Lake #30 is what bothers me most (although it’s in the “may contain” section).

  20. I returned the product a month ago and they still charged me the 2nd payment. Apparently, they did not receive the return – even though I sent it via priority mail. When I called customer service they let me know I could not receive a refund unless I had a registered receipt for the return. After about 20 minutes of arguing, they said they would credit me.

    If you want to return Perfect Pigment, send it registered receipt so you know they received it. It may be the only way to get your money back.

  21. I’m kicking myself right now because I let the 30 day moneyback guarantee date slip by on the Perfect Pigment. I thought I had until the date that the second payment was being deducted to return it, but it was actually 30 days within after the ship date, so it’s too late. It’s my own stupid fault. I just got distracted with a close friend of the family’s being in the hospital and I let the date slip by. I got a bad infected cyst after using it, although I don’t know for sure that it was the make-up that did it because there were other possible factors. I’m afraid to try it again, though, in case it was the make-up. Maybe my sister will want it. She doesn’t have acne. I really feel like I was a dope getting sucked in by this infommerial. They claimed that it contained only natural mineral pigments but it contains a chemical dye, so they mis-represented it. I did enjoy using it until I broke out though. I’m sorry that I even posted it here now. It is my own dumb fault, though, for letting the 30 day guarantee period slip by.

  22. ok all…. as a professional makeup artist i have a newsflash for everyone…. ANYTHING can make ur skin break out. Even if a product says no breakouts…. do not believe it. your skin is your skin and can be intolerant of different things. For example, avon makeup breaks out my skin a lot, even the ones that promise not too, but they are still in business. Share your opinions on ur own experience but do not bash the product. What may not work for you may be golden to another person 🙂

  24. I bought this product because I have a VERY busy schedule and will not go any where without my make up on. I have tried everything (almost) on the market from cheap to very expensive products. I tried the Bare E. make up and hated it, made my face look fake and showed every line. I was leary spending this on Christina’s Compact, but again I have been looking along time for a makeup product that is fast to apply, with very good coverage and would not highlight my (beginners) :lol lines.

    Christina”s Perfect Pigment is awsome….I love it, the only problem is that the compact is not very big and it will only last about a month and it is hard to reorder, also I found that when I apply it with my kabuki brush it applys much better (the powder stays on the brush better).

    I am hooked however I am having a hard time reordering just the compact. If anyone knows how to order it please let me know. I also would like to see Christina manufacture the Perfect Pigment in a much larger compact.

  25. Thank you for the ingredients listing Hunnie. I wasn’t bashing the product, just reporting my personal experience. The thing that did bother me though was that they advertised it as containing all natural mineral pigments, but it contains a chemical red dye, which is listed as being fairly comedogenic at http://www.zerozits.com . That is misleading advertising. It’s very difficult to tell anyway whether a break out can be attributed to using a particular make-up or whether it could be from some other cause (diet, stress, etc.). We’re not doing broad scientific experiments here, just reporting our personal experiences. If a bunch of people report having flared up after using a particular product though, that might be convincing enough for me to pass on it. Yes, we are all different, but certain ingredients have been tested out scientifically and found to be problematic. I feel confident in recommending a powder make-up like Earth’s Beauty though. It seems to be about as pure and simple of a make-up that I’ve seen. It does contain kaolin, though, a type of clay, which although not known to be comedogenic could apparently be drying to the skin (I think I read that in a Linda Chae article). Also, the coverage is not very good. I haven’t found any 100% perfect make-up for me yet.

    I may give the Perfect Pigment another try since I didn’t return it on time. Maybe it was just a coincidence that I broke out. I’m a little nervous though, but with the exception of the Red Lake #30, which it lists as a “may contain” so it might not even be in there, I think the other ingredients check out okay at http://www.zerozits.com . My DVD player is hooked up and working now so I can watch the make-up video. I did really like the make-up and it’s very convenient to use.

  26. I just noticed something about this post which is that most everyone who posted here are brand new to the board. Did you all do a google on Perfect Pigment or something to get to the board? It’s just so weird to have all new posters in one thread. It can’t be spammers because many of the posts are negative. I did a count of the 5 different people in this thread besides me who tried it, and 2 broke out, and 3 liked or loved it. I broke out, but can’t be sure if it’s due to the make-up since I skipped washing my face a couple of times. It’s a toss up.

  27. I looked up “Red 30 Lake” at the Environmental Working Group website and it does show it as being different from D & C Red 30. ( http://www.ewg.org/reports/skindeep2/search.php?search=D+%26+C+Red+30&searchtype=ingredients ) D & C Red 30 is listed as a grade 3 (on a scale of 0-5) for comedogenicity at http://www.zerozits.com but maybe Red 30 Lake isn’t as bad. It’s shown as being a low concern for toxicity at the EWG website whereas D & C Red 30 is shown as being a moderate concern. I’m tempted to try the Perfect Pigment again since I wasn’t able to return it but am nervous that I might break out again. My skin is doing well at the moment. I’ve actually not been wearing any foundation since I’ve been using the Nutra Lift cream because it has a little tint to it. I’ve only been using spot cover and blush.

  28. Does anyone know where you should return Christina Cosmetics to?
    I have called customer service and left a message since no one
    answered the phone. I cannot find information on web site
    on how and where to send back to. Any help would be greatly
    appreciated.

  29. I just ordered Perfect Pigment from Christina Cosmetics and I am very unhappy. The price is very misleading. I am surprised that they can get away with this, but I am sure there is a loophole. I tried to call and cancel the order, but, so far, have been unsuccessful. The 800 number is a answering machine and the order number is for automated ordering(if you have other questions they refer you back to the 800 number). I am tempted to call my credit card company to see what I can do. When I ordered, I thought that I was only going to pay the $24.95 plus shipping and handling, not the full $50 plus shipping and handling. What a scam!!! I feel uneasy about this transaction already! Anyone have any suggestions? I would appreciate any at all. Thank You![/b]

  30. If you aren’t able to cancel the order then maybe you can write "return to sender" on the package. They don’t charge the second payment until after 30 or more days have passed. Try the customer number at the website I listed above.

  31. I also purchased Perfect pigment from christina cosmetics, I agree from earlier post price misleading, it is not $24.95 account is charged twice that amount. When I ordered the product I was asked if I want to pay an extra five dollars for express shipping. I agreed the next day I received an email stating the product was sent, fast right? Wrong!! Ten days later still have not received makeup. I called customer service and was told that the five dollars extra was to process order quicker not ship quicker. Then what was the email about. Well three weeks later I received the make up. The product was alright nothing to get excited about, not for fify dollars anyway. Wear a towel on your clothing when putting on makeup because you will wear most of the powder. The lip gloss is nice though. On a scale out of 10 I would give the product a 6. I wear makeup three days a week only and apply it once on these three day, within two weeks you could already see the bottom of the one color, by the third week the one color pretty much gone and the others well on their way. So I would have to say this would be a pretty costly makeup to afford. When I called customer service to return product, they were really not even interested to know why their customer was unhappy, just quickly gave an address to return product not really interested at all. Too bad because I really was hoping this product was all that it was hyped up to be.

  32. Yeah, it does powder off the compact really easily. It gets powder all over the place. That’s really crappy about charging you for fast shipment and then it taking 3 weeks. They should refund you the $5.00. My Perfect Pigment is just sitting in my closet also. What a waste of money. Oh, well…

  33. I ordered it over a month ago, and still have not received it.
    I called costomer service over a week ago, and they said it was on back order. Now I call and cant even get through to speak to anyone.
    And when they send me to their mail box, it says it’s full.
    And there is no way to e-mail them! What terrible service!

  34. Oh geeze, ttdriver, this is getting worse and worse. That’s very upsetting. I hope that you get it soon or that they give you your money back. Did they actually charge your account yet? They didn’t charge my account until they actually sent the product out. In the meantime, though, you might be running out of make-up and need to buy something else. What a pain!

  35. Someone with the screen name "not happy" posted this message on the chat board:

    Did any of you try to discontinue the Christina perfect pigment? I agreed to a one time only purchase and was assured that I would not be charged for any more product and here comes on my charge account!! I can’t reach any one at Christina cosmetics it is voice mail box only and nobody ever calls ya back. I am very frustrated!!

  36. I have tried three different brands of mineral makeup, Christinas, Bare Minerals, and Sheer Cover. I prefer Sheer Cover best coverage without making me look shiny. I have oily skin and none of them broke me out but bare minerals is good if you have dry skin give you a nice shine. I never used the concealer from Christina or sheer cover, I had a problem with a liquid/cream concealer with mineral makeup.
