Organic and Inorganic Pigments for Permanent Makeup
Iron oxide base pigments, also known as inorganic, are used in the manufacture of all of our eyebrow and eyeliner pigments and in some of the lip color pigments. Organic base pigments are brighter and more vibrant in color compared to an iron oxide base. Attempting to achieve vibrant lip colors such as red and orange with iron oxide colorant is impossible. Organic lip colors will generally settle and fade to approximately 25% to 70% lighter than the initial implanted pigment.
Black Onyx is an iron based and is used in most of the black eyeliner formulations. In order to darken a color, it is recommended to mix Black Onyx with another color such as Dark Walnut, Dark Chestnut, Sterling Grey, Jade, Black Pumpkin, Midnight Brown/Black or Moroccan and Blue Corrector.

Blue Lip Harmonizer is a corrector pigment. It is so named for its ability to eliminate the blue tones prominent in so many lip procedures.
