These were swatched over Tick Tock’s base in Milky Way and photographed under a bright light with no flash.
First up are Child Who Swallowed A Star, Duck Hat, Good Doggy and I Never Liked Turnips. I Never Liked Turnips is my favorite out of this bunch.
Then we have Tackiest Thing Here, Elaking On Air, Wartime and Wizard’s Apprentice. I really love Tackiest Thing Here…it’s got some really gorgeous subtle red flash that’s hard to see but just beautiful.
These were swatched over a taupe colored primer by TIck Tock Cosmetics and photographed under a bright light with no flash. On to the pretties!
First up are Affair Of The Diamond, Death Of Marat, Dictateur Sanguinaire and Madame Deficit. The stand out for me in this set is Death Of Marat.
The next set is National Razor, Sun King, The Republic and Versailles. National Razor is really pretty and super complex.
Shipping and TAT were lightning fast and I found these shadows very easy to work with. I can’t wait to try them on my face!
Today I bring to you a face of the day using some new shadows from Ten Three Labs. I’ve used Antoinette, Pearl and Seondeok. They were very easy to work with and I can’t wait to try some of the other colors.
Face-Cargo foundation in F-20 over Nyx primer. Finished with a custom powder.
Cheeks-Geek Chic blush in Strawberry Shaortcake.
Lips-Bonne Bell liner in Boysenberry with Ten Three Labs Smudge Stick in All Vamp Everything.
Eyes-Darling Girl base and Glitter Glue under Ten Three Labs Antoinette on lids, Pearl in Crease and blended out with a bit under lower lashes as well, Seondeok on brow bone to blend out Pearl. Just a bit of Hapshepsut under middle of lower lashes. Seondeok on inner corner to brighten. No liner, one coat of mascara. Brazen’s Joan brow powder on brows.
Hello hotties! This week I got to try a new indie brand to me, Ten Three Labs. I decided to try the Howl O’Ween Collection sample sizes, as well as the Bad Bitch sample size collection and a Smudge Stick in All Vamp Everything. I was lucky enough the also receive a sample of Artificial Angels perfume oil as well as a full size of Shelley’s Big Eye and a Salve Stick in Nightlock. On to the swatches! These were photographed under Tick Tock’s base in Milky Way, under a bright light with no flash.
All these shadows were a joy to work with!
First we have Howl O’Ween, Mouth, That Goat Got Devil Eyes and Shelley’s Big Eye. The stand out for me in this set is Mouth.
Next up is Antoinette, Bathory, Coretta and Cruz. I loved Bathory….it’s gorgeous!
This third group is Dandridge, Hatshepsut, Hiawatha and Joyce. Hatshepsut is gorgeous and would a great color to wear with either warm or cool colors.
This last group is Murasaki, Pearl, Seondeok and Sotomayor. Pearl is absolutely amazing!
This next photo is of All Vamp Everything, swiped ones, twice and three times. It’s got great slip and is very moisturizing and quite natural and easy to wear with a simple face on the go.
Artificial Angels-A somewhat cloyingly sweet scent. Maybe TOO sweet…Nothing good can come of such sweetness. Apple, black cherry, sugar cane, olive.
In bottle: Sweet with cherry.
Wet on skin: Cherry, cherry and more cherry with a bit of apple and sweetness.
Dry on skin: The apples comes out more with the olive which should be weird but gives it a good non-sweet note to ground it. The sugar cane comes out at the very end and just wafts gently around in the background.
Verdict: I love this! It’s sweet but the olive keeps it from being too cloying or little girl smelling.
Fair Season-It’s fall! Fall’s great. And fall means fairs all around America. Funnel cakes and giant turkey legs and rides with people getting sick…You know, fun! Cola, beer, candy corn, cotton candy, caramel, buttered popcorn, firewood, pumpkin, brown sugar, amber.
In bottle: Sweet amber.
Wet on skin: Cola and amber are right up front with the firewood and brown sugar hovering in the back ground.
Dry on skin: This has dried down to a beautiful blend. The cola and caramel are blending gorgeously with the rest of the notes. The firewood grounds the scent and the brown sugar really warms it up.
Verdict: I love this and am wearing it right now.
Apples Crave Cake: Fresh, crisp red apples blended with our yellow cake layering note.
In Bottle: Crisp sweet apple and cake.
Wet on skin: At first I pick up a bright green note, like a freshly broken branch from an apple tree. As it settles a bit the sweetness of the cake comes out with just a whiff of apple skin.
Dry on skin: As it dries, the spiciness comes to the forefront and dances around with the richness of the yellow cake. It’s definitely foody and gourmand but still sexy and downright delicious.
Verdict: If you like foody or cake scents then this is for you! Arcana’s rich Yellow Cake single note is legendary for a reason.
This exclusive perfume oil will only be available while supplies last so don’t wait if you want to try this delectable scent.
