Swatching 4 random beauties!

Today I went through and picked out some loose eyeshadows from my drawers, all shades that I should use more often! Maybe showing them to you might get me some extra motivation? I know that Teacher’s Pet and Undead are still available, Brad and Salvador Dali might be gone though.. Link to the companies websites in the list below!

Brad, Teacher’s Pet, Salvador Dali, Undead

MaddStyle Cosmetics – Brad

A silky smooth pale blue shade with soft shimmer. Gooorgeous all over the lid with a black liner for a pretty 60′s/70′s look or as a highlighter in dark blue smokey looks.

Silk Naturals – Teacher’s Pet

“Medium taupe pearl with hints of golden bronze glimmer”
A wonderful neutral shade with both warm and cool tones that harmonizes with most skintones. Super shimmery and lovely, great all over the lid for a quick effect.

Tick:Tock Cosmetics – Salvador Dali

An ultra sparkly dusty purple. Tick:Tock really does make some amazing sparkly shadows!

Glamour Doll Eyes – Undead

A black with red undertones/sheen, however, some have said that it as a maroonish color to it”
Drrrrama! A super silky black with strong cool toned red shimmer. Yum.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics eyeshadows in Cloud Kingdom, Petrified Pumpkin, Grave Moss, Marrowpetal

Cloud Kingdom

“Soft baby blue base with pink shimmers.”
The best eyeshadow of the bunch! The colour is magical, the pale blue base is greyed out enough to look super dreamy on the skin, and the shimmer is insane. Really soft application.

Petrified Pumpkin

“Sea teal blue/green base with golden shimmer.”
A beautiful shimmery dark green with a drop of blue, leans a bit teal. Beautiful sparkle! Applies quite smooth, slightly dry but it’s alright.

Grave Moss

Soft green (just verging on teal) with green shimmer.”
This one is definitely more on the turquoise side, a very cool toned green if green at all. Got this as a freebie so it’s not my kind of shade, but it’s pretty! Applies well.

Marrowpetal

Vibrant grass green with soft copper gold shimmer.”
Perfect shade description. A silky bright green that gets a little murky with the warm shimmer, or maybe not murky, “aged” like old metals rather! Thanks to @Pheesmakeuptips on insta I’m craving slime greens more than usual.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics eyeshadows – Bone Dust, Royal Tarts, Cosmic Owl

Three more eyeshadows from Femme Fatale Cosmetics! They’re all available in three different sizes at the Femme Fatale webshop.

Check out the purple shadows (and deeper description of the brand) in this blog post.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics eyeshadows in Bone Dust, Royal Tarts and Cosmic Owl.

Bone Dust

“Pale taupe with coppery pink shimmer and sparks”
A pale purple corpse nude which sadly goes on bone dry (yes I said it) and uneven. It has a beautiful reddish fine glitter but it doesn’t adhere to the chalky base very well (and the camera won’t show it either), atleast not when applied wet. I would have skipped this one if I knew.

Royal Tarts

“Washed out mauve-rose base which can lean grey, and orange shimmer”
A dusty pink with a copper/gold sheen, super pretty! Applies quite evenly, has some slight tendencies of getting darker with blending. Would look gorgeous on so many people.

Cosmic Owl

“Smooth bronze-brown with golden tones – almost leans olive or orange in some lights”
The description for this one is spot on. It applies like butter and glows like crazy! It’s one of those shades that darken quite a bit with blending so if you pat this on your lid and blend it out in the crease you basically get a two-toned makeup look with a single shadow.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics eyeshadows – Sugar Rush, Star’s Sorrow, The Art Of Peacocking

Idag anlände tio ögonskuggor som jag beställt från Femme Fatale Cosmetics, jag är så ruskigt glad, de gör några av mina favoritögonskuggor på planeten! Supervackra kombinationer som blixtrar och glänser i kontrasterande nyanser. Här har jag samlat de tre lila nyanserna jag plockat ut (grymma för att få gröna ögon att poppa!), för visst är det bättre att djupdyka såhär i detalj än att smacka upp alla tio? Eller tänker jag fel?

Hur som helst så kan du välja mellan fullstora skuggor, mini (som kommer i burk) och sample (i påse) när du beställer, burkarna jag har är mini. Jag hade fått jobba riktigt duktigt för att ta slut på en sådan här, så i min mening: Satsa på mini om du inte är sugen på monstruösa mängder!

Åla i spenderarbyxorna och besök deras hemsida.

 

Today ten eyeshadows that I ordered from Femme Fatale Cosmetics arrived, I’m so happy, they make some of my favourite eyeshadows in the entire planet! Super beautiful combinations that sparkle and shine in contrasting colours. Here I collected the three purple shades that I picked out (yay for enhancing green eyes!), because isn’t it better to dive into a few in detail like this instead of smacking all ten up? Or am I wrong?

However, you can pick between three different sizes when you’re ordering. Full size, mini (that comes in jars) and samples (in bags), the ones I have are mini. I would have to work really hard to finish one of these jars, so in my opinion: Go for minis if you’re not into monstrous amounts of eyeshadow!

Put your spending pants on and visit their website.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics eyeshadows in Sugar Rush, Star’s Sorrow, The Art Of Peacocking

Sugar Rush

“Bright blue-toned purple with soft turquoise-green shimmer.”
A really soft shadow that applies smooth and evenly. The effect is beautiful, it almost looks chromed. Best out of these three In my opinion.

Star’s Sorrow

“Vibrant violet purple base with strong blue/aqua shimmer and sparks.”
Super bright and SPARKLY shadow, the aqua shimmer is gorge. I hope that it doesn’t lose a lot of sparkle when blended. Almost as good as Sugar Rush application wise.

The Art Of Peacocking

Murky mid-tone purple base with shimmer the goes green at an angle to the light.”
Vibrant and murky at the same time, looks really cool with its subtle low-light shimmer even though the green doesn’t really show on my skin. Driest one in texture but not bad.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil “Dolce Vita”

Velvet Matte Lip Pencil från NARS i färgen Dolce Vita är en sådan där produkt jag drömt om men aldrig kommit till skott att köpa. Färgen är svårbestämd, köttigt hudnära liksom, och väger jämnt mellan nude, rött och varmt rosa. En sådan där nyans som ser fantastisk ut på precis vem som helst. Dolce Vita-nyansen återkommer i flera produkter i NARS sortiment och finns att få som både rouge, läppglans, blankt läppstift och så dessa matta läppkritor. Nu vill jag ju ha allihoooop! Rouget allra helst.

Formulan uppför sig inte stramt och tjockt som matta läpprodukter kan göra utan är silkeslen och så tunn att jag glömmer att jag har den på läpparna. Ingen doft- eller smaksättning kan jag känna heller. Minuset? Att pennan behöver vässas. Morr. Snälla NARS, gör dem i twist-up-pennor istället så slipper jag slösa produkt!

Finns att köpa på Sephora här i Sverige, jag beställde från brittiska HQhair.

 

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the colour Dolce Vita is one of those products that I’ve loved but never gotten around to actually buying. The colour is hard to pin down, meaty and skin-like in a way, weighs evenly between nude, red and warm pink. One of those shades that will look good on just about anyone. The Dolce Vita colour comes as many different products in the NARS range, blush, lipgloss, shiny lipstick and these matte lip crayons. Now I want them aaaaall! Mostly the blush.

The formula doesn’t feel stiff and thick like matte lip products often do, it feels silky and so thin that I’m always forgetting that I’m wearing it. I can feel no scent or taste either. The minus? The pencil needs to be sharpened. Please NARS, make these as twist-ups instead so that I won’t have to waste any product!

See how it deepens the lip colour without really give a “coloured” look? Jane Eyre pout alert!

Natural but still a little extra “something”. Love this lippie! Nails are Illamasqua Smash.
