Femme Fatale Cosmetics Eyeshadow Swatches

Here’s another load of eyeshadows from Femme Fatale Cosmetics! Gorgeous loose eyeshadows that might seem bland when you look at them in the jar, but they turn sooo gorgeous and multidimensional on the skin! Pictures don’t even give them justice. You have to try them out if you like interesting eye looks!

You can order these at the Femme Fatale Cosmetics webshop, prices range from $3.85–$6.60 depending on which size you get. These are the mini sizes with sifter. You can also get discounted sets of 5 minis, 10 minis or 10 full sizes.

A bunch of beiges you might think? Not even close! In the lids you can see a hint of the chromed effect that will show super strong on the skin.

Golem, Puzzle, Watery Grave, Bat Wing Hall, Wildvine.

femme fatale cosmetics golem puzzle watery grave bat wing hall wildvine swatch

Golem, Puzzle, Watery Grave, Bat Wing Hall, Wildvine. My favourites here are Golem, Puzzle and Wildvine. Bat Wing Hall is beautiful too but easily “overblends” and turns into a flat matte red as you can see in the swatch.

Perspecto-Illusion, Opaline Shoal, Wisp, Glasswater. All of these are amazing aswell! Opaline Shoal has a powderier texture and needs a bit more work but it looks just fine. Glasswater is so gorgeous I could puke.

Matte Blush in City Ruinous on the top right. With the order you get a handful of samples, I despise these little baggies because they’re impossible to use, but here you can see them.

NYX Cosmetics High Voltage Lipstick, Butter Gloss & Intense Butter Gloss swatches!

Nyligen fick jag hem en bunt läppisar från NYX, det var blandat ur linjerna High Voltage Lipstick (slimmade mjukgörande läppstift med mycket pigment), Butter Gloss (mjuka halvtäckande gloss) och Intense Butter Gloss (samma mjuka formula men med full täckning), vi kikar på allihop i ett svep tänker jag! Allt finns att shoppa på Eleven.se.

A while ago a bunch of NYX lippies arrived, a mix between the lines High Voltage Lipstick (slimmed moisturizing lipsticks with intense colour), Butter Gloss (smooth semi opaque glosses) and Intense Butter Gloss (the same soft formula but with full coverage), let’s take a look at all of them! All of this is available at Eleven.se who ship within Europe.

nyx lippies

Aaaall the yummies.

Bare lips for reference.

 

nyx cosmetics high voltage lipstick stone, flutter kiss, rags to riches, wine & dine

NYX Cosmetics High Voltage Lipstick in Stone, Flutter Kiss, Rags To Riches, Wine & Dine. These have a very comfortable feeling on the lips, very “melty” so I would wear anything darker than Rags To Riches with a lip liner. The pale shades look FANTASTIC on the lips for being so opaque, they often build up and look gunky on me but not these. These lipstick smell a tad candy-ish but not much. The packaging is not good though, the lids fall off FAR too easily.

nyx cosmetics high voltage lipstick stone swatch

Stone. That typical taupe beige shade that everyone seem to want on their lips right now. It looks surprisingly good on me for being so grey.

nyx cosmetics high voltage lipstick flutter kiss swatch

Flutter Kiss. A very odd shade, it’s like that trendy mauve tone but a lot paler, this one “shouldn’t” look good on me either but I really like it. It’s very smoothing!

nyx cosmetics high voltage lipstick rags to riches swatch

Rags To Riches. I didn’t see it in the bullet but this one has shimmer! The warm pink base pairs beautifully with the golden sheen, not a very “me” shade but maaany people would love this.

nyx cosmetics high voltage lipstick wine & dine swatch

Wine & Dine. A berry wine shade. I love that it’s a shade lighter than your average wine shade which keeps it from looking gothic, and it applies super smooth without any patchiness which also is a normal problem with these shades. Definitely needs a lip pencil though as it’s so slippery.

 

nyx cosmetics butter lip gloss

NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake, Raspberry Tart. These glosses are super balmy and non-sticky, my lips actually feel hydrated after wearing them and they still aren’t greasy. They have quite a strong fruity vanilla scent, worth noting if that bothers you. The packaging is simple and good, nothing weird about it. Standard doe foot applicators that picks up a decent amount of product from the tube. They are spot on over all in my opinion, try them out!

nyx cosmetics butter gloss angel food cake swatch

Angel Food Cake. A mauve toned beige shade, very neutral and would work on just about everyone. Even though it’s see-through it has a surprising amount of colour!

nyx butter gloss raspberry tart swatch

Raspberry Tart. A transparent yet intense berry pink. Looks more purple in the tube but that’s what gives it this pretty cool tone. I LOVE THIS SHADE TO PIECES! I’m so weak for these shades as they look so juicy, and when they also feel amazing on the lips like these ones I have very little to complain about. YUM. Easily my favourite out of all these lippies.

 

nyx cosmetics intense butter gloss

NYX Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss in Funnel Delight, Orangesicle, Toasted Marshmallow. These glosses are a bit thicker, more of a lip lacquer formula, and give serious drama with only a sweep. They are slightly stickier than the original Butter Gloss but still very smooth for a gloss. The pigment is so crazy I feel a bit scared using them alone as they can smear quite badly. I would definitely pair these with a matching lipstick or pencil, just dabbing some in the middle of the lips for extra oumph. They are GORGEOUS though! The scent on these is sweeter, more of a cake vanilla. The packaging is similar to the original but the applicator is flatter and more flexible, great for this super intense formula as it applies very smoothly along the edges.

nyx cosmetics intense butter gloss funnel delight swatch

Funnel Delight. A no-joke Barbie pink. Full coverage, super intense payoff with very little work. I’m not too fond of the slightly whitened tone of it though, it looks like a neon pink post-it note on my face. Haha.

nyx cosmetics intense butter gloss orangesicle

Orangesicle. Briiiight orange with a red undertone! This one doesn’t have that whitened feeling that the pink has, so even though it’s still super intense I like wearing this one more, apart from how scary it is because of the smeary formula.

nyx cosmetics intense butter lip gloss toasted marshmallow swatch

Toasted Marshmallow. This shade is so strange, like a dirty mauve wine? Like nothing else I own! Sadly it’s too messy for me to just smack on and go, I would want a matching lippie to wear underneath for it to not smear everywhere. I’m SO TORN! Seriously, that colour.. Drool.

Tropical Green

I’m wearing Charming Sage from KIKO all over the lid, blended it out with a shimmery bronzer and then I lined my eyes heavily with Tropical Green pencil from NYX. Imagine this being done with browns, then you have a super normal every day look. Barely any smudging or blending! I just reached for something “quite dark and preferrably greenish” to wear with the eyeshadow and ended up with the most awesome colour combo in a while. Pure luck.

I’ve worn the same eye makeup a couple of days in a row now, this colour combo is so goooood! This picture is taken six hours in so the base is looking a bit tired, it had lasted through pouring rain. Blergh!

Charming Sage

Today I wanted to do something contrasting but still muted in a way. I smacked a shimmery purple on the top lid and a soft woodsy green on the bottom lid, I love these colours together!

Vita Liberata Capture the Light Opaque in Latte Light & Buttermilk

Capture The Light from Vita Liberata is like a BB cream for face and body. They come in five shades - Buttermilk, Gold, Latte Light and Latte, and you have the option to pick Opaque for some coverage or Translucent if you want it to be more see-through. All of them are very moisturizing, also they have a slight sheen that doesn’t look glittery. Doesn’t make my face break out either.

Here I have Latte Light and Buttermilk, both in the Opaque formula. These have been fantastic this summer! I’ve used Latte Light on my face and decolletage while I’ve been self tanning to make the skin look extra plump and even in tone, not turning it orange at all. Buttermilk is great for giving luminosity and enhancing the beauty of fair skin. I barely have any pigment naturally so the Buttermilk one is fantastic on areas where the skin appears bluish and transparent, just to even out the pigment a little.

These are available at Eleven.se who ship throughout Europe.
