Swatches: Star Crushed Minerals Delphinium Pink, Grape Shimmer, Violet Pearl & Blue Violet Sparkle

purchased by me

EDIT: I was going to post these when I did a review, but decided to add them because people asked. So added instagrams of the jars. I’ve also added some screenshots of messages from Edie that I received during and after the whole blow up in my group and on my reddit post. Long story short, she apologized for letting things get out of control on reddit. Apparently this blog post was enough to makes people angy. Anyways. I never told people not to order from SCM, nor did I say anything was wrong with the shadows. I was just simply disappointed in the amount of shadow I received in the jars. Once again, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HER SHADOWS. K? I am not a truth twisting liar pants. Thread of drama on reddit.

I made a small purchase from Star Crushed Minerals back in July. Here are swatches of four of the eight shadows I received.

While the colors are nice, they’re your basic starter shadows, I won’t be making any future purchases. I was disappointed in the amount of shadow in my jars, considering they are supposed to be full size. There has also been current drama surrounding the company which I want no part of.

  • Nice swatches, female. Very neatly done. I’m still working on making mine look that nice. Even when I use tape, it seems I move my arm too much or something, because the tape moves.

    • Thanks female!
