So Dena from AFK Cosmetics made a post over on /r/Indiemakeupandmore/ asking for some people to swatch some of her things for her. I have been wanting to try her shadows for a while, but funds, yeah, so I quickly messaged her! She sent me a lovely package of shadows and a new lip balm to try. So I have swatches for you!

Also I wanted to share this from the Aedena and Saucy Boys listing:

This shadow is a limited edition color to raise money for my team’s contribution to the Extra Life Charity Event on October 25th. 100% of the profit from each shadow sold will be donated to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital of our choice, which is located in our home state of Alaska!

This is my team’s 3rd year participating in Extra life, which is a video game marathon to raise money for our charity. Extra life is an amazing charity and 100% of each donation goes to the chosen hospital.

If you would like to make a larger donation (which is appreciated but NOT expected) please go to the link below, you can also find any and all information about extra life on the website.

Sooo. Can you guess which shades I love? I’ll give you a hint! Aedena and the Saucy Boys, Female Titan, The Strip, That Tastes Like Purple and You Smell Like Burning. They are *all* pretty, but those are my favorites. The balm is awesome. It feels really good, it’s non-drying and the color is lovely. The formula is great. All of the shadows are soft and smooth, nothing is patchy! I want all of her purples and ohmygod have you seen Super Mutant? It’s gorgeous. :GRABBY: Also. Are those labels not the cutest ever? Dena drew them herself!
