Baroque Cosmetics A Heart’s A Heavy Burden Swatches

I have another lovely collection from Baroque Cosmetics called A Heart’s A Heavy Burden.  This collection was inspired by Howl’s Moving Castle and the colors are just gorgeous!

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.

Hello all you lovelies!  Today I bring you swatches from a new to me company called Baroque Cosmetics.  This collection is called Viva La Revolution and I’m assuming you can guess the inspiration!

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!

FOTD With Ten Three Labs Pearl and Antoinette

Hotties!

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.

Ten Three Labs Swatches and Review

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.

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.
