So I noticed that a few people stopped over here looking for some swatches from thees parteeculere brand, and I couldn’t deliver.
I WILL CHANGE THAT.
All swatches are patted over TFSI (top) and Pixie Epoxy (bottom).
From left to right: Honey Peach, Gold Dust, French Vanilla
Left to right: Subdued, Orchid, Earl Grey
Honey Peach was difficult to photograph, so here’s another picture:
Honey Peach: a pretty, shimmery peach with a strong hot-pink shimmer.
Gold Dust: true gold sparkles.
French Vanilla: lovely white shimmer, very shiny and great for a dramatic highlight.
Subdued: looks like an antique silver in the photo, but in person it’s more of a beige with some pink/purple shimmer and tinytiny blue sparkles. I love this color.
Orchid: a cool matte purple.
Earl Grey: a deep, neutral matte grey.
I don’t know if this seller uses bases when she mixes her shadows. The shimmers, when blended over TFSI, disappear very quickly. Gold Dust is especially hard to work with; it’s all sparkle and no base, so I’d recommend a creamy shadow or Pixie Epoxy underneath this one. The mattes are also hard to work with; they’re quite difficult to blend, especially Orchid. Then again, I don’t really like Orchid anyway because it’s too cool for my skin tone and makes me look bruised and sick. I don’t know if I’ll purchasen eyeshadows from this person again.
I purchased from her last summer, so it’s possible that her current formulas are a little different. The above comments are only relevant to her products from August 2009 and earlier.
I received a buttload of free eyeshadow samples with my orders. I’ll swatch those next week if anyone is interested. I also received foundation samples, but I don’t think I’ll ever post those. Too much hassle, behbeh. I do like her foundation formula, though. I actually found a match for my pale yellow/peach skin YEEEEEEAH.
