So Dawn from Dawn Eyes Cosmetics had asked for some swatchers not too long ago and I contacted her about it. She sent me her Halloween set to swatch as well as some other shades! So here we are. I’ll be getting the other swatches up soon. My poor laptop is on its last legs and has been randomly shutting down for awhile now. Well now it’s shutting down before it even starts up. *sigh* So I hijacked Sascha’s laptop today and installed my stuff on it, but I wasn’t able to get my most recent photos off my laptop so I have to retake them. Boo. Oh well.

So my favorites from this collection are The Witching Hour, The First Frost, Sleet, Folly and The Gloaming. They are so beautiful. The Witching Hour is my absolute favorite, it’s a rich, bright gorgeous glittery purple. Ugh. So pretty. The First Frost is so pretty. It’s pale and ice with this subtle glow. Sleet is just one of those pretty oceany green colors that I love, it’s a little pale and silvery ocean green. Folly. I don’t usually like browns, but it has this beautiful coppery glow. It’s just so lovely. And The Gloaming is just this lovely gunmetal blue with a ghostly purple sheen. I love it. All of the colors are beautiful, but those are my favorites. The Great Pumpkin was a big surprise. It’s such a bright, rich purple orange(it’s clearly orange, lack of sleep apparently turns it to purple in my head. oops) over bare skin and then surprise it turns into this dark rusty almost brown orange with a beautiful green sheen. Just fantastic. This is just a lovely collection and it has so many rich beautiful colors and then some pale silvery colors. Just beautiful. Dawn did a wonderful job with this collection.

Linda sent me this months subscription to swatch! I’ve always really loved her shadows, the formula is really nice and the colors are always beautiful, this subscription is no exception. My favorites were Marked by the Kill and Unblooded Hunt. Marked by the Kill is just a beautiful autumn orange with lots of sparkle and Unblooded Hunt is this super pretty kind of metallic steely blue with much sparkle. I was also super excited to see a sample from Dark Matter Makeup! I’ve been wanting to try her stuff for what seems like forever now. Xenomorph is gooooorgeous. I love it. I’ve also never tried Spectrum Cosmetics before and hadn’t heard of Abyssal Realm. I was also happy to find that The Chequered Lily Apothecary sample wasn’t one I already have. It too was beautiful. The subscription was really nice. It had a good variety of colors and brands and the packaging is just awesome. Linda does uses her own art for most of her labels and she does beautiful art! The lip gloss is nice. It’s fairly opaque and easy to build. It has no flavor or scent. It’s not too sticky either.

You can find innocent+twisted alchemy on Storenvy here. You can contact Linda through her contact page here. You can find her on Facebook here. You can find Spectrum Cosmetics shop here, Abyssal Realm here, The Chequered Lily Apothecary here and Dark Matter Makeup here.

press sample

I forgot to add… In case you haven’t figured it out… It’s a collection based on Monty Python. That is all.

Official descriptions
Airspeed Velocity of an Unladen Swallow is a simple dark orange based brown in a lovely satin matte. Over a sticky primer the brown is at the forefront of this shadow, but over bare skin the color leans a burnt orange/brown that is begging for fall weather.
Black Beast of Arrghhhh! is a deep satiny blackened teal. Works well over any type of primer primer and holds promise of fantastic smokey eye look for evenings out.
Bring Out Your Dead is a dusty grey-taupe with a silvery sheen when applied over a sticky base. An excellent all over lid color.
Ni! is a lovely forest green with just a hint of silvery blue glitter. Perfect for walks in the woods, shubbery picking, or cutting trees down with herring.
That Rabbits Dynamite! is a gentle and unassuming as an innocent little bunny, this shadow is a pearly soft white with a touch of pink. Especially suited for inner eye highlighting!
……Tim? is a lovely golden, earthen brown with red and golden flecks and a satin finish.

Blush
Your Father Smelt of Elderberries is a soft, but fun light magenta blush that blends out into a gorgeous berry pink with a satin finish. Ideal for taunting people in French accents.

Holy Hand Grenade is a gorgeously shimmery gold highlighter with the ever so slightest hint of silvery glitter. Perfect for evening questing.

Lip gloss
Tis But a Scratch is a dramatic, sultry, and almost earthy blue based red gloss with excellent build ability.

Miss Dena sent these out before she went out of town for a wedding and I got them swatched a couple of days after I got them. I’m gonna need full sizes of the blush and highlighter, they are SO freaking pretty. I thought I love Mawwage, but Holy Hand Grenade is even prettier guys. t.t SO pretty. Also I love That Rabbits Dynamite, Bring Out Your Dead and Black Beast of Aughhhh! Also Witches Made of Wood is an amazing gloss. It’s gorgeous. This is a beautiful Autumn collection and you kind of need it. Such pretty rich colors! This collection will be released on August 31st and is a seasonal collection, so it’ll be around through November each year. Also one of the glosses was missing the little insert that wipes off the excess gloss, so that’s why one of the wands was gloopy. I let Dena know and asked if she could send me one when I get some Paladin Primer for my giveaway, so no worries if you order gloss, it will look like the other wand! xd
