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 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.
All Vamp Everything smudge stick
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.
