New Post on Hubpages!

I haven't used Hubpages in a while, but I figured why not?

I reviewed the Urban Decay Naked Palette 1 and compared it with the Naked Palette 2.

(Also, please don't worry. I only use Hubpages a little, this blog isn't going anywhere! I can be free on Blogger! LOL)

More Femme Fatale Cosmetic Swatches

I haven't been feeling well lately, so it has taken me longer than I wanted to get these up, but anyway here they are!

Also, I'm TRYING my HARDEST to find the best way for me to photograph swatches. So until I find the "sweet spot" some photos may be a little "different" I guess. I'm just trying to get the hang of it, plus my camera is the absolute worst and I'm ready to throw it out the door.


Be Mine is from the Heart Breaker Limited Edition Collection. It's a light brown color with gold duochrome.

"Moonglow is a pale columbia blue with a prominent golden duochrome and subtle pink shimmer."

 Genesis is a sea foam green with gold shimmer.

Riptide is a very bright blue with aqua-green duochrome shimmer.

Divinity is a light pink peachy color with orange/gold duochrome.

I love ALL these colors! It's just so hard to capture the colors with my current camera. I really need an upgrade soon. Hopefully you can get an idea of each shade though. Thanks for looking!

Femme Fatale Cosmetics (Swatches)

I recently came across a new indie makeup company called Femme Fatale Cosmetics. It's a shop located in Australia and sells eyeshadow, blush, illuminators, etc. The shop offers vegan and non-vegan cosmetics and are marked if they are or not and lets you know if they are lip safe or not. Each label also tells you the ingredients, color, and collection (if they happen to be part of one).

What caught my eye the most was the duochrome eyeshadows. They are AMAZING! I absolutely love ALL the colors and they apply like a dream. They are so extremely smooth and pigmented. I'm just going to go ahead and say I'm making another order in the near future.

In the mean time, I ordered a few eyeshadow samples (8 to be exact along with a freebie!). The shop is currently in the process of switching from bigger bags to smaller bags. This really isn't a problem for me since I end up putting them in my own jars anyway.  I have 4 swatches today and more to come later.

Photos on the top of the sets are swatched over Urban Decay Primer Potion and bottom photos of the set are swatched wet.

 (Swatched wet)
 Merrymaker is a Winter's Veil (Dec '11) Limited Edition color. It's a medium green with a gold sheen and lots of gold and green sparkles. Vegan & not lip-safe.

 Holiday Spices is another color from the Winter's Veil (Dec '11) collection that's limited edition. It's a rusty orange color with gold shimmer and sparkles. Non-vegan but lip-safe.

Sunfire is coral/pink with a gold/copper sheen. Non-vegan but lip-safe.

Obliterate (freebie sample) is a medium pink with blue, green, and pink shimmer. Non-vegan & not lip-safe.

You can purchase these colors and many more in either full sizes or sample sizes. Samples ship for free! My samples got here in about a week and a half once shipped (Australia to US). Prices will slightly go up in the near future, but for now samples range from .50AUD- $1.10AUD.  Full sizes are $5 AUD. There's also a sale section that the L.E. colors are in. Go get some before they are gone!  Click HERE to visit the shop!
