Hand swatches over primer

Swatches: Dawn Eyes Cosmetics Mystic Dawn, MidnightKiss, Ethereal & Hidden Moonlight

More Dawn Eyes Cosmetics! I have Mystic Dawn, MidnightKiss, Ethereal Space and Hidden Moonlight. These shades were much easier to work with and swatch. They’re fairly sheer over the primer and Ethereal Space needed to be blended because it went on patchy. Over the Glitter Glue they look much better than over the primer.

So these were swatched over Too Faced Shadow Insurance and Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue. Photos taken indoors under a daylight bulb.

Hand swatches over primer

Swatches: Dawn Eyes Cosmetics Dew Drops, Sparkling Purple Grey, Blurple & King’s Robe

More Dawn Eyes Cosmetics sample swatches. :) I had trouble with these being patchy and sheer over primer again. D: They did much better over Glitter Glue though, than the previous swatches.I emailed the owner to let her know that I was having trouble and to see if her shadows are supposed to be sheer.

I have Dew Drops, Sparkling Purple Grey, Blurple and King’s Robe.

Swatches: Brazen Cosmetics

So I had some Brazen Cosmetics sample baggies and decided to put them in jars. So I have Nubile, Tease, Don’t Stop!, Miss Independent and Cirque for you. :D These were taken indoors under a daylight bulb and swatched over de Leon Cosmetics Eye Primer and Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue.

Nubile is a light brick dust brownish/red with lots of sparks.

Tease is described as a hot bubble gum pink with purple sparks.

Miss Independent is described as burgundy with purple sparls.

Don’t Stop!is described as a sexy dirty forest green, blend a teeny bit of blue-green sparkle undertone, then a medium brown sparkle sheen.

Cirque is a pretty aqua/teal blue. I don’t believe it’s available anymore. At least I can’t find it on the site.

Swatches: Performance Colors COLORPOT Cream Eyeshadow

Sooo I’ve had these for a little while. >.> I’d ordered the sample pack from Performance Colors that came with five COLORPOT Cream Eyeshadow Samples and two concealer samples. I chose Plum Fairies, Champagne, Sweetdreams, Sparkles, and Electric Cornflower for the colorpots and fair and light for the concealers. She ended up sending me a full size pot of Plum Fairies and a full size pot of the Fair concealer as well as a full size jar of her primer and clamshells in Emerald City, Farrah, Velvet Talker and Oilslick, which oddly enough I wanted to try. All of the colors are lovely and can be built for good payoff, but go on more sheer to be used as a base. The lighter of the two concealers matched my skin fairly well but I can’t stomach the smell very well. I had the same problem with the primer, so I haven’t been able to test it out. The smell shouldn’t bother me, I like it just fine, but my stomach says EFF THAT. D: Fortunately all of the COLORPOT’s are fragrance free. :D I love Plum Fairies, Velvet Talker, Farrah and Sweetdreams. I would definitely recommend trying these if you’re looking for a cream eyeshadow and don’t want to buy drugstore brands.

These were swatched on bare skin and photos taken under a daylight bulb indoors.

Ahhhh

Swatches: Morgana Cryptoria Gel Lipsticks

So some of you may know of my love for the couple of gel lipsticks I got from Morgana Cryptoria a couple of months ago. Well I has more. I got Syrenka, Atlantis, 11th Hour, Persephone, Cherry Jubilee and Aisling. Love Aisling, 11th Hour, Cherry Jubilee and Persephone. I fail at applying Syrenka and Atlantis, but I knew when I bought them they might not work out for me. I’m a little sad that I can’t get them to work with me, I was hoping though! Still the other shades? Ugh love them. Persephone is such a pretty shimmery nude and Cherry Jubilee is like Twinkling Rubies in another form. It’s so pretty.

I shall let you see the pretties! Photos were taken indoors under a daylight bulb.
