Hooray! Part one of part two of Black Rose Minerals second Hallow’s Eve Not Another Zombie. This is a really lovely collection, however I have to gush. Sinister Urge is amazing, you can see it on Claire here I haven’t tried it on my eye balls yet but I need to soon. It’s beautiful in the jar and swatched. It’s just gorgeous. I failed to capture the beautiful shift, it’s just so beautiful in person. Now that that is over… Alrighty.

So I have three beautiful shades from the Not Another Zombie collection. I have Demonoid Phenomenon is a sort of pale coral with blue/purple sparks. It really is lovely. Demonspeeding is an almost taupey green with gold and blue/green sparks. Sinister Urge is, well if you took a navy blue and made it super light and dusty and gave it a pink shift, you would have Sinister Urge. It’s quickly shoving it’s way to my list of shadows I need a backup of.

All photos were taken indoors under a daylight bulb. Swatches are over bare skin, Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue and Kiss My Sass Cosmetics Ivory Matte Eye Primer.

Demonoid Phenomenon is a rose with blue sparkles.
Demonspeeding is a musty green with a bit of orange, lime and green glitter.
Sinister Urge is a light blue with pink sheen.

Woot! Mo from Madd Style Cosmetics let me ask her a few questions. :)

Luna: How long have you been making indie cosmetics, and what made you start?
Mo: I started Madd Style Cosmetics in February of 2010, however I had been making cosmetics for the better part of a year prior to opening. I’ve always considered myself an artist. Creating is a passion of mine. I’ve worked with many mediums however, after being a part of the online beauty community for so long, and modeling for indie companies, the science behind making cosmetics become more and more intriguing. Before MSC, I owned “Madd Style Designs”. I sold hand-made cosmetic bags and vegan lip balms. Extending my cosmetics line, at that time, just seemed like the most logical – and natural- thing to do.

Luna: Do you have any future plans for different products? Any future collections in the works?
Mo: Currently I am working on 2 Collections (possibly 3! shhh!) for Halloween. After that the Holidays will be in full swing, so there will be plenty of new product coming out within the next few months. Recently I started releasing blushes from MSC’s new “Cheek Chic” line, I plan on coming out with one or two more cheek colors by the end of the year, as well as a “re-release” of my Optimus Primer with new packaging.

Luna: What is your favorite item that you make?
Mo: Of course I am bias, but I love the eye shadows. lol. The major thing that sets Madd Style apart from other indie (and mainstream) companies is the complexity and uniqueness of the shadows. While MSC does offer a wide range of simple, more practical colors, I am a huge fan of the ones that “do tricks”. The ones that change color, are pressure sensitive, have color-shifting sparkle, and duo-chromatic finishes are my most favorite to create… and wear!

Luna: What is your favorite beauty item from another indie company?
Mo: I LOVE MTCoffinz’s pressed eye shadows and color balms. I only have one color balm but I can already foresee an addiction happening. lol

Luna: Would you rather be a Crow or a Bat?
Mo: Bat! For no good reason other than they look more badass, are unique in their existence, and sonar is cool. lol

Luna: Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Mo: Just a big thank you to you, Luna, and your readers, for taking the time to show MSC some love. Over the past 2.5 (almost 3) years Madd Style has grown to be very successful and I count my blessings everyday. I’m so proud, and honored, to be where I am today and will never forget that it’s because of all of “you”. <3

MSC is an awesome company run by an awesome lady. Her shadows are beautiful. She’s got some really interesting and unique duochromes. Like Seedless for example. It’s a pretty pink with a green shift. So is Final Fantasy. It’s a gray/green base with a pretty gold duochrome. MSC is definitely a company you should peruse and buy. Samples come in little clam shells and aren’t always up. So if you want samples check her shop periodically. It’s really worth it. :)

It’s taken me forever to get these swatched. I uh also misspelled Fortunato… A lot. >.> So uh just ignore that. Ahem. Here is part two of the Black Rose Minerals collection of the Perverse. I have Annabele Lee, Fortunato and Premature Burial. Surprisingly I really like Fortunato. It’s basically exactly what Rosa described. It looks like slightly old yellowed bone. Premature Burial is gorgeous. It’s an almost deep darkened taupe with pink and gold sparks. I swear I see silver sparks in it, but I’m probably just going crazier. Annabele Lee this amazing dark bright blue that I think is slightly on the cool side. It’s crazy bright with gold and/or copper sparks. This was a lovely collection and I’m a jerkface for not getting it swatched sooner. Also hand disclaimer. My shaky/twitchy hands are getting worse. d= It’s hard to take non-blurry swatches. A tripod is on my list of stuff to get. That would help a lot.

Premature Burial is an earthy brown glistens with pink and gold sparkles.
Annabele Lee is a slightly deep bright ocean blue with copper sparkles.
Fortunato is a creamy white tinged with yellow is reminiscent of old bones.

I feel really horrible. I should have had these swatched over a month ago. I am a horrible person. Sorry Rosa! <3 So this is Black Rose Minerals Collection of The Perverse part one. There are six shadows in this collection. I have for you Haunted Palace, Red Death and Nevermore. Such pretty sparkly shadows. Seriously so pretty.I love Haunted Palace so much. I need to pair it with Blood Moon to see how it looks! >.>

Let’s see. Haunted Palace is this dusty blue/gray shade with purple sparks. Seriously my camera wouldn’t pick up all the sparks but oh my god you need it. Red Death is a sort of rusted red with lots of gold sparks. Nevermore is amazingly sparkly too. It’s an seriously blackened green. It has tons of blue and green sparks. She did a good job on this collection! I will hopefully do the other three soon. d= When my hands stop being assholes. Sorry about them being blurry. :( My hands were shaking too much. Stupid hands! WTF

Haunted Palace: A light blue grey.
Nevermore: A blackened green with blue and green shimmer.
Red Death: Red loaded with red and gold shimmer.
