Swatches: Hi-Fi Cosmetics
When Hi-Fi Cosmetics was on Heartsy I was a little hesitant to snatch up a voucher for it because of the long TAT that I’d heard about from several fellow bloggers, but I decided to go ahead and do it. I ended up getting Slime and Snails, Sound Check, Lost & Lonely, Sex, Drugs & Rock N Roll, Raindrops on Roses and Kokomo. I received Time for Cheer and Ransom Notes as free samples. I received my order just shy of a week after I placed my order. Artfire was a little funky so she had to request the last little bit of money I owed her as I was slightly over my voucher amount. I’m a little torn on my order, and I’ll tell you why. Part of my shadows look different from the swatch photos, now I know that swatches will look a little different from monitor to monitor and sometimes camera’s don’t pick up the colors properly, etc. I was a little sad as I was really looking forward to the colors on the swatches.
Sound Check appeared to have orange/gold glitter and what I received has pink glitter. Lost & Lonely, Kokomo, and Sex, Drugs & Rock N Roll are all much darker than the photos on the listings and Raindrops on Roses is more of a dark coppery rose than the light dusty rose from the swatches. Do I love all of the colors? No, but I do like them. I do love Slime and Snails, Lost & Lonely and Sex, Drugs & Rock N Roll. I was a little disappointed in Kokomo and Raindrops on Roses as I purchased them because they were really light. They aren’t ugly colors, just not what I was expecting. My only other issue was that some of my colors sort of flake and lift off of my primer. I haven’t had this happen before so I’m not sure why. I’ve tried both primers I have and they did it on both. I have yet to try those particular colors on my eyeballs so hopefully they’re fine on my eyes. Once I try them all on my eyeballs I’ll write up an official review! I just wanted to get my swatches up and my thoughts up for now. It’s entirely possible that it’s an issue with both of my primers and that is why the shadows are flaking, but I won’t know that for sure until I have another primer in my hands or try them on mah eyeballs. If anyone has any answers on the flaking/lifting I would love to know! I haven’t contacted the owner of Hi-Fi yet as I was going to wait until I had a chance to try all the shadows on my eyes to see if I even needed to contact her. So uh onto the photos! Also uh I think I labeled Ransom Notes wrong. Whoops. Forgot the s.
