Swatches: Pixel Bunny Cosmetics Mathmatical, Why’d You Eat My Fries?, Bacon Pancakes, Unacceptable!!!!, I Steal Jewels & Fresh to Death

purchasedbyme
Apparently I can’t read. >.> Friends should be Fries. *Whistles* Pixel Bunny Cosmetics is a fairly new indie shop. Vanessa opened up in June of this year and started up with a little Adventure Time collection! I purchased samples a few months back and have those swatched for you. I have Mathmatical, Why’d You Eat My Fries?, Bacon Pancakes, Unacceptable!!!!, I Steal Jewels and Fresh to Death.

Oficial Descriptions
Mathmatical is a sky blue base with a strong golden-yellow shift (like Finn’s beautiful hair!) and golden sparkles. Can appear a light teal (more green) or a more blue teal.
Why’d You Eat My Fries? is an opaque, satin black with a deep red sheen and red sparkles.
Bacon Pancakes is a shimmery golden-pink champagne.
Unacceptable!!!! is an opaque, true yellow with a pearl finish. Slightly shimmery.
I Steal Jewels is a pale, icy, silver-blue with a slight white shimmer.
Fresh to Death is a shimmery, slightly red-toned violet with golden sparkles

You can purchase from Pixel Bunny Cosmetics here.
You will receive loose product in a standard 2×2″ baggie, packed 1/4 teaspoon by volume for $1.
Sample baggies have a label that shows company name and logo, product name, ingredients and lip safety information.

All photos taken under a daylight bulb and swatched over Madd Style Cosmetics Optimus Primer, Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue and bare skin.


Mathmatical is a bright, light teal green that at different angles appears to have a silvery blue shift and has gold sparks. It looks fairly plain in the baggie but pops when applied over Glitter Glue. It’s very satiny looking over just primer. You really need the sticky base to get the gold to show up well.

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, yellow lake #5, tin oxide, ferric ferrocyanide, ultramarine blue. VEGAN
line

Why’d You Eat My Fries? is a blackened purple/red shade with silver and red sparks. It’s a satiny black and looks lovely as an eyeliner. I found I liked this shade best over primer. It looks sort of… dry and powdery over the glitter glue? But it looks like a true satin over primer.

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, tin oxide. VEGAN
line

Bacon Pancakes is a sheer champagne color. I like this as a wash of color on my eyeballs. It’s a simple lovely color that works well against my pale skin. XD Mmmmmm bacon.

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, tin oxide. VEGAN
line

Unacceptable!!!! is a canary yellow with a satin finish and yellow/gold sparks. Words are escaping me today and I’m not a huge yellow fan, so uh.

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, yellow lake #5, tin oxide. VEGAN
line

I Steal Jewels is a silvery icy blue pretty color with white sparks.

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, tin oxide, ferric ferrocyanide. VEGAN
line

Fresh to Death is a light mauve with gold sparks. This color makes me think of Autumn and wine. XD

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, tin oxide, ferric ferrocyanide. VEGAN
line

Overall these are nice shadows. They’re fairly simple, no fancy tricks. I was happy to see another indie shop starting out well. :) I had no qualms with my order and it arrived fairly quick. She included some candy(yum!) and cute not paper that Fumiko stole. XD Would I purchase again? Most definitely. I’d like to get a full size of Bacon Pancakes and would happily order in the future when she adds more products. Right now she just offers sample baggies, mini 3 gram jars and full size 5 gram jars of her Adventure Time collection.

Current TAT is 14 business days. You can purchase here. Vanessa can be contacted here via her etsy contact page. Find Pixel Bunny Cosmetics on Facebook!

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

purchasedbyme
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.

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

Official Descriptions
Delphinium pink is a semi opaque soft pink color with turquoise blue glitter throughout.
Grape Shimmer is a shimmery pearlized purple with white/silver undertones.
Violet Pearl is a semi opaque pearlized purple color with silvery pink undertones.
Blue Violet Sparkle is an opaque violet blue color with a slight purple shimmer with silver sparkles.

All products can be purchased from Star Crushed Minerals here.
You will receive loose product in a 5g jar with sifter, filled with 1g by weight for $5 USD.

These were swatched over Madd Style Cosmetics Optimus Primer, Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue and bare skin. Swatched under a daylight bulb.



Delphinium Pink is a cotton candy pink with multi colored sparks.

Ingredients: titanium dioxide, magnesium stearate, serecite mica, micas, tin oxide. VEGAN

Grape Shimmer is a silvery-gray purple with silver sparks.

Ingredients: serecite mica, magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide, ferric ferrocyanide. VEGAN

Violet Pearl is a semi-bright warm toned purple with pink sparks.

Ingredients: serecite mica, magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide, manganese, mica, oxides. VEGAN

Blue Violet Sparkle is a dark royal purple with silver sparks.

Ingredients: serecite mica, magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide, manganese, mica, oxides, ultramarines, tin oxide. VEGAN

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.

Current TAT is 5-7 business days. Samples are available here.

Edie can be contacted here. Find Star Crushed Minerals on Facebook.
