My favorites from this collection were Otaku, Notice Me Senpai and Waifu. They are perfect and I love them. Otaku makes a beautiful eyeliner you guys. The lip balm is beautiful but I don’t think it suits me very well. xd It’s very buildable and comfortable to wear. The blush is bright and beautiful and I had to use a very light hand with it. A little goes a long way. This collection was awesome. The colors are lovely and the label art is just awesome. It’s a cute and fun collection. I highly recommend at least getting the sample set. The label art is by Ziwei Pan.

Bear is such a beautiful shade. It’s a light orange with a golden sheen/shimmer. It’s delicate and lovely and glowy. The Ojo De Gato nail polish is fairly thick and I ended up thinning it out a tiny bit which made it really easy to work with. It’s very opaque in just 2 coats. It looks like a blackened brown, but in the sunlight it has beautiful gold and copper sparkle. The lipstick is very nice. The first version was very slippery, but Andrea reformulated it to make it less slippery. It applies really well and is not opaque in 1 swipe but it’s easy to build up and makeup opaque after a couple. Blotting really brings out the copper and gold sparkle. If you want to see swatches of the Ojo De Gato shadow you can see the swatches I did last year here. This set was really nice. I loved the little extras she sent with it. My daughter quickly stole the cat button, card and little cat figurine. Bear and Ojo De Gato are available through April 30. After that they are gone until next year! It’s really wonderful that Andrea does these colors every year. All proceeds go to SNAP Cats.

Maleah sent me these to swatch quite awhile ago. I’ve been dealing with a bunch of life things including divorce. It put me into a serious funk and I haven’t been able to get much of anything done. Divorce is now final so things are slowly becoming normal again. First thing I did was get these swatched. They are beautiful colors. My favorites are Sleepy Head, Moonlight Lover and Kitten Kiss. These more satin blushes, they are not super sparkly but not matte either. They are super fine and buttery and they blend and apply really well. I like all of the shades and want to pick up full sizes of Blueberry Pookie, Moonlight Lover, Raz Baby and Sleepy Head. Those are the 4 I received samples of. I depotted them into 3g jars so they were easier to use. Must get full sizes. Maleah did a really great job with these. Definitely recommend.

So this color is gorgeous. It’s only going to be available tomorrow on October 31st. There are limited quantities of the jar and sample size. So get it while you can. It’s just glowy and sparkly and smoky and beautiful. Andrea did an excellent job with this shadow. :d I’m wearing it tomorrow for Halloween. Apparently I’m being a vampire. xd This looks like of mauvey with aqua green sparks in the jar but when it’s put on over primer or glitter glue it’s just this glowing beautiful green over a smoky rusty base. Just gorgeous.

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.

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

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.

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

Chirp Cosmetics Company contacted me to see if I’d like to swatch their new matte lip colors and of course I said yes! These are bright, creamy colors. Shocker is my favorite! It’s an amazingly bright pink. These are a tiny bit drying as mattes can be and do stain. The Shocker and Vamp are very opaque and Fruit Punch is a little sheerer. I’m looking forward to seeing what other shade they come out with!

So I kind of love all three of these colors. Vintage is not a color I would have picked for myself, but I really like it. I’m so glad Maleah put it in. I ended up ordering pressed pans of Figment and Juliet. They are beautiful pinky neutrals and I love them. I can’t wait to try the pressed version! As I said in my previous swatch post here, these formulas are fantastic but the pressed version is magical. It is buttery and smooth. It applies and blends beautifully. I love them. You must try these. Go forth and buy!
