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.

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.

Say hello to Rosa from Black Rose Minerals!

Luna: How long have you been making cosmetics, why did you start and do you have any future plans for new shades/products?
Rosa: Creating BRM for me was and is very personal and therapeutic for me. I started in early 2010. I had recently started watching youtube videos and that also meant buying lots of new stuff. One day I came across TKBtrading and purchased one of their kits. At that point I was just experimenting. I never thought that this little kit was the beginning of BRM. I ended up purchasing some eye shadows from different companies and discovered that I had purchased some re-packaged stuff. This lead to research and more research. During this time I had started making my own creations. That dream of having my own make up line seemed like something I could do. So now to the depressing stuff. My mom passed away at the end of 2009. And shortly after that I was laid off. I was pretty much a mess. The only thing that was helping was making eye shadows. The things that usually helped me, music and reading, weren’t doing it. It took me a long time to enjoy music they way I used to. I am getting way off topic. After lots of research and trial and error Black Rose Minerals opened for business in November on 2010.
I always have tons of new shades waiting in the wings to be released. I have created over 400 shadows so far, though not all make it. I have a basket full of rejects. I hope to get more blush colors done soon. In the future I would like to expand to include some lippies.

Luna: What is your favorite eyeshadow/blush that you make?
Rosa: This is such a hard question to answer. Every color I make has its own special place for me. I’m going to pick a few because I can’t just pick one. Noxious, Nightingale, Luciferi collection, Soul Reaper and the Luna collection are among my all time favorites. Oh and blushes, Junkie is my favorite so far.

Luna: What is your favorite eyeshadow/blush from another indie company?
Rosa: Hmm this is a tough one as well. Callipygian from Fyrinnae for eyeshadow and Thing blush from Detrivore.

Luna: Would you rather be a Crow or a Bat?
Rosa: I would have to say a bat. I’m a night person.

Luna: Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Rosa: I would like to thank you for providing me with this opportunity! Also for helping me out with labels and banners and swatching! I really appreciate it! =)

Look out for new shades to be released just about every month. Also please don’t be afraid to contact me with any question, concerns, color requests, anything! A huge THANK YOU to those that have given me chance! Every sale is greatly appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to read this little interview!

Man. Black Rose Minerals is great, Rosa is great and she makes such beautiful shades. I think BRM is one of those companies that flies under the radar, kind of like Detrivore Cosmetics. I have to start posting more swatches. ;) I’m happy to help you too, Rosa. :d I enjoy it. I hope BRM rises above the radar. You really have beautiful shadows and now blushes that go on like a dream. :) I seriously encourage you to try BRM if you haven’t yet. Rose has sample options and she often runs sales. :) Thanks so much for answering my questions Rosa!

I meant to get these swatched a few days ago but my body is being more complicated than usual! But they’re swatched now, so woot! I have the Play Hard Look Fabulous collection from Black Rose Minerals! I have Hazel Eyes, Chrissyroze, Tomboy and Jersey Girl. Hazel eyes is a smokey forest green with gold and green sparks. Chrissyroze is a pale bubblegum pink with a slight purple shift. Tomboy is a dirty purple with aqua/blue sparks/sheen. Jersey girl is a matte bear brown. Tomboy is my absolute favorite from this collection, followed by Chrissyroze. Who’d have thunk it.

Hazel Eyes is a deep forest green is accented by lighter green hues and shimmering golden sparkles.
Chrissyroze is a delicate sheer shimmery bubblegum pink with a slight lavender sheen.
Tomboy is a sugary purple with a blue sheen.
Jersey Girl is a medium matte brown.
