¹Neutral signifies no substantial temperature bias. However, all color results are dependent upon skin undertones.

Cool and warm designations indicate the basic temperature bias of the pigment’s undertone.

²A temperature designation does not necessarily indicate absolute cool or warm properties; rather that the primary bias leans toward either cool or warm. There are different degrees of cool and warm. Some cool pigments may be only slightly bias to cool or warm,

Some may be very cool or warm. Each technician must work with L/I pigments and the client’s individual skin undertones to determine the appropriate temperature bias of the correct pigment selection for each client.

³Note on color descriptions: The second word describes the most influential Hue; the first word describes that color’s influence.

Example: brown-BLACK signifies the color is mainly black but has a brown influence. 


For Best Results:

v  Always shake pigment bottles well before each use.

v  Do not dilute pigments.
