BFTE Rainbow Set Swatches

This was my very first BFTE purchase and it was a good one!   You get to try a variety of their really amazing colors and it comes in a handy tin.   These colors were swatched over Detrivore primer and photographed under a bright light with no flash.

The first set features Lemon, Tangerine Wacky, Addicted and Whisper.   Out of this batch, Wacky is my favorite.

This set features Raspberry, Lava Momma, Karma, Grape and Midnight Kisses.  I loved Raspberry right off the bat!  The soft pink sparkles are gorgeous.

The last set includes Envy, Green Apple, Gem, Peacock, Blue Bayou and Blueberry.  I really love Envy…it’s a green I’ll wear!

If you want to pick up this collection (which I highly recommend!) then you can check it out here:

Meow Swatches

All swatches done over Detrivore primer and photographed under a bright light with no flash.   First up we’ve got Bahia Solano, Bora Bora, Hanalei Bay, End Game and Hysteria.  My favorite is Hysteria.

Then we’ve got Pina Colada, Mimosa, Jungle Juice, Lazy Days and Chaos.  I’m loving Pina Colada and Jungle Juice.  Pina Colada is just about the most perfect highlight color ever.

Meow seems to really be knocking it out of the park with their soft and shimmery colors this summer.   Some of the shifts are really quite remarkable and if you would like to check them out, go here:

Darling Girl Ghost With The Most Swatches

This is a really fun collection.  I enjoyed swatching these and can’t wait to put them on my face.  As usually I’ve swatched these over Detrivore primer and photographed them under a bright light with no flash.

Here we have Never Trust The Living, Delia’s Song, Married In Red, It’s Showtime and Prince Valium.   I got to name Married In Red so it’s my default favorite!  Never Trust The Living will also get a lot of wear I can tell already.

This next group seemed very patriotic to me!   We’ve got Strange & Unusual, Jump In De Line, Nice F*cking Model, Inferno Room and Lost Souls Room.   I actually like all these colors but I’m partial to Nice F*ucking Model.   Heh.

We wind this post up with Recently Deceased, Sandworm, Stupid Parlor Tricks, Headshrinker, Miss Argentina and Bioexorcist.   I found Recently Deceased difficult to work with but I suspect it would make a fantastic liner.  My hands down favorite was Headshrinker….it’s a deceptively sexy neutral.

These are limited edition and can be found here:

Darling Girl Zombies Swatches

I was sooper excited to receive my Darling Girl order today.  First up, I’ve swatched the Zombies collection for you.  I purchased a mini set of the pigments and two of the glosses.   All swatches are done over Detrivore primer and photographed under a bright light with no flash.   Enjoy!

First we have the blushes in Living Dead Girl, Dead Rising and Zombie Supermodel with Gina Cadaverous gloss.   My favorite of these is Living Dead Girl.  I can’t wait to try it!

These are the Spectral Shifts in Pushing-Up Daisy, Viral Viola and Zombie Queen with Living Dead Fabulous which I listed as a blush but is a gloss (D’oh!).

If you are interested in any of these, they are limited edition and you should purchase them now before they are gone forever!

Urban Decay Rollergirl Palette Swatches & FOTD

At the low, low price of $13 I just couldn’t pass up the Urban Decay Rollergirl  palette.  I love trashy and I love the 70’s so it was a no brainer for me.  It features four colors of shadows, one eyeliner and one lip gloss.     The shadow colors are Woodstock, Verve, Suspect and Darkhorse.   It also comes with Whiskey eyeliner and Crush lip gloss.

Can you spot Ecto 1?

These swatches were done over Detrivore primer and photographed outside in direct sunlight.

I used all of the colors in this look including the liner and gloss.  I loved how it came out and am totally in love with this palette.   For $13 on sale  you can’t go wrong!

Virus Insanity Swatches

I’ve had these gorgeous babies around for a while and always enjoy playing with them.   Virus Insanity is kind of known for their duochrome shadows and I seem to have picked some beautiful ones in this order.   Pigments are swatched over Detrivore Primer and photographed under a bright light with no flash.

Below we have Peppermint Latte, Kitten Tails, Scaredy Cat and Pear Cobbler.   Scaredy Cat was of course my favorite.  It’s a pretty unique shadow that I haven’t seen before.

Now we have Autumnal Equinox, Ira, Outrageous Orange and Cinnamon Cappuccino.   I really love Autumnal Equinox and can see myself wearing it a lot!

Geek Chic Cosmetics Swatches

I’ve been terribly remiss in posting lately so I’ve planned several swatch posts with lots of photos to make up for it!   I started working out again (yay!) but I’ve also been exhausted (boo!) and had put off the swatches until I caught up on some other stuff.   Today I present to you, Geek Chic Cosmetics (GCC) in all their glory. I got a little of every thing and I hope you enjoy.   Shadows were swatched over Detrivore primer and photographed outside in natural light.

First up we have Sugarcube, Cupcakes!, Captain Tightpants, Ambassador and Purity Burns.  Out of this bunch I really like Sugarcube.   It was really pretty as an all over lid color with just some mascara.

Next up are Cowabunga Dude, It Came From Dimension X, Yellow Jumpsuit, Master Sensei and Cool But Crude.  I had a hard time seeing much of a difference between Cowabunga and Dimension but my hands down favorite was Cool But Crude.

These colors are from several difference collections and you can check them all out here:
