Femme Fatale Cosmetics Review and Swatches


It’s been months and I’ve finally got the Femme Fatale Cosmetics review up! It’s a testament to their product how much trouble I had photographing the swatches. The Basic Picture Femme Fatale Cosmetics is an indie company based in Australia.  Their main attractions are their complex eyeshadows and glitter polishes.  The latter cannot ship out of Australia, but you can find them at third-party stockists. Eyeshadows cost $5.75... Read More

Shiro Cosmetics There And Back Again Hobbit Collection Complete Swatches


Shiro Cosmetics recently released their latest collection based on The Hobbit.  Check out these gorgeous colors!  This is more of a toned down collection compared to Shiro’s past releases, featuring lots of neutrals and deeper, smokier colors.  It’s very fitting of Tolkien’s universe. My favorites include War of Five Armies, A Regular Bears’ Meeting, Farewell, Wherever You Fare, Lingered in Twilight, and Riddles in the... Read More

Detrivore Cosmetics Eyeshadow Swatches


Here are some more Detrivore Cosmetics eyeshadow swatches for your enjoyment!  I love how rich and pigmented Detrivore shadows are.  My favorite shades are Dormant, Smog, and Crocodilia; what about you?

Detrivore Cosmetics Eyeshadows (L-R): Samhain,... Read More

Silk Naturals Review and Eyeshadow Swatches


I’ve been really lax in posting company reviews lately, but Silk Naturals deserves one. I think they have earned the top spot as the indie I order the most from. That’s no mean feat! The Basic Picture Silk Naturals has been around for a while, and seems to be a favorite even outside of the immediate indie-sphere.  They have almost every kind of cosmetic, from the standard loose eyeshadows and mineral foundation to cream liners and a whole... Read More

Prestige Cosmetics Eyeshadows Review and Swatches (Surrey, Black Diamond, Oasis, Rosebud)


DISCLAIMER: This review covers products that the company sent for consideration. A while back Prestige Cosmetics sent me a couple of eye and lip products to try.  Here are swatches and my thoughts on each of the four eyeshadow products.   First up is the Beauty Bar Eyeshadow Palette in Surrey (0.14 oz).  I don’t see this product on Prestige’s website, so it must be discontinued.   All four eyeshadows in this palette are smooth... Read More

Wet n Wild LE Where’s the Party? Collection Review and Swatches (Sparkle Till Morning and Shimmer The Night Away)


Sorry for the long absence, guys! I’ve been dealing with an increased workload and some personal issues so blogging has been on the backburner. That hasn’t stopped me from buying new beauty products, though, so I have a ton of new stuff in the hopper! Now it’s just a matter of writing the reviews. ;) Anyway, I recently grabbed the two new palettes from the limited edition Where’s the Party? collection by Wet n Wild. With the... Read More

The Maybelline Scene on the Runway collection for Fall 2012 launched with four earth-toned LE Color Tattoo shades: Barely Beige, Mossy Green, Gold Shimmer, and Rich Mahogany. I would really like to know what was going on in the Maybelline people’s heads when they decided to make these lovely, accessible neutral shades LE, when they have a matte tangerine orange (a color I rarely see even on people who regularly wear bright eyeshadow) in their... Read More
