Tree Shepherds (sorry I saved my photo with the words too small and spelled wrong!)-" A deep brown with a green sheen."

 Demonspeeding- "A light murky green with yellow highlights. Just a touch of green, lime and orange glitter."

Black Rose Minerals Swatches- Part 2

Are you getting tired of Black Rose Minerals swatches yet? No? Good! There's 2 other parts to come in the next week or so. :)

All are swatched over LA Splash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base.

Oracle-"A medium brown base with yellowy-green-turquoise flashes."

Shunsui- "Our shade starts with a cherry red and sparkles with pink (the color of his kimono) and aqua sparkles (the color of his fancy hair tie)."
It's Electric-"This super bright hue sparkles and shines. Wear it dry for several varying shades of blue from slightly sheer to more heavy coverage. Wear it wet for a bright metallic blue without losing any of the sparkle."
Yoruichi-" A deep blue black matte base with an overlay of violet shimmer."
Lagrimas- "This beautiful shade of aqua shimmers and shines with warm golden tones and light green highlights."

Wish You Were Here- "A sheer white base loaded with multi-colored sparkles."
Tower of Strength-" A dark red with gold sparkles."
Superstar-"A matte cornflower blue base loaded with blue sparkles."
Crazy On You- " A soft green with a golden glow reminiscent of the moonlight. And a bit of silver sparkles sprinkled throughout."
 Total Eclipse of the Heart- "A black base with a pinky orange sheen."

I think my absolute favorite out of the bunch has to be Wish You Were Here. I don't know why, but I totally did not expect the sparkles it would have. It's GORGEOUS! Runners up would be Tower of Strength, Oracle and Yoruichi.

Black Rose Mineral Swatches- Part 1

Hi Everyone!

I made a pretty big sample order from Black Rose Minerals back in June during a sale. I just got them maybe 2 weeks ago since the owner Rosa was going through some personal things then my order was lost through Paypal somehow. Totally not Rosa's fault, but she has excellent customer service and was right on it! After we figured out my order was lost, it was sent out within a few days. Everything I received is amazing! She's also having a birthday sale right now (33% off with the code birthday), so go check it out!

Anyway, on to the swatches!

All are swatched over LA Splash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base.

All Apologies- This is an exclusive (I think?) shade Rosa made for those of us who were waiting for our orders. It's a sort of teal color with golden sparkles.

Panic Switch- A medium yellow with a pink shift.

Pandora- "deep rose with blue and pink glitter."
Peritwinkle-"This slightly sheer borders between baby blue and lavender, A touch of goldish orange duochrome gives the slightest glow when dry. Wear it wet to bring out the metallic tone and make the golden orangish highlight pop even more."
Behemoth- "mid-tone blue with golden sparkles."
Tourniquet- "A metallic gold in a black base and an ever so slight tint of a green highlight gives just a bit of a twist."
Poseidon-"A powerful teal base with a high shimmer finish and turquoise glitter."
These Things- "silvery gray with just a touch of pink shimmer."
Ichigo-"deep black glistens slightly with just a pop of copper sparkles."
Aria- " A sparkling green based teal loaded with silver and aqua sparkles."


I really love all these colors! I think I may need a full size of a few soon!

Kiss My Sass Cosmetics Swatches

Hi all!

These are some colors from Kiss My Sass I thought I should re-swatch. I made my last purchase over a year ago and if you'd like to see that review and some of my older swatches, go HERE. I will be re-swatching all of the colors I currently have soon.

Kiss My Sass is definitely a company you should check out if you haven't. I never had any issues with any of my purchases and I've never heard/seen any negative feedback about the company. Each color I have is excellent with color payoff and quality.

All eyeshadow is swatched over LA Splash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base.

Sailors Kiss- "vibrant blue with gold sparkles"

Boardwalk-"taupe with violet sparkles"

 Tidal Wave-"deep turquoise with subtle silver shimmer"

 Sleepy Hollow-"charcoal gray with a copper sheen"

 Broken Hearted-"intense pinky-red with gold shimmer"
*This color does lean towards a pinky-red instead of of a bold red.*

Love The Way You Lie-"deep blue with a few red sparkles"

 Night Elf-"deep blue-violet with a pink interference and violet shimmer"

 Nude Beach-"pinky-tan with a few pink sparkles"

 Metamorphosis-"blue with a golden sheen"

Spellbound-"muted purple with a green shimmer"

If you'd like to purchase any of these colors along with MANY more as well as blushes, lip products, etc. you can find them HERE!

Tick:Tock Cosmetics Swatches

Hi All!

This is my first order with Tick:Tock Cosmetics! Well, actually I had mentioned I wanted to try this company and my wonderful boyfriend surprised me with a sample grab bag. He can be awesome sometimes, but only sometimes (just joking!).

Since my boyfriend ordered for me I didn't deal with the checkout process, but he did let me know right after he had made a purchase. He had chosen the Golden Sample Goodie Bag and it shipped out within a day or so. Within the sample bag you get 3 random samples and 2 free samples. Pretty great! It was all packed nice and neatly within the golden sachet baggie. Samples were packaged in zip-lock baggies and labeled with the company name, product name and ingredients. 

I had absolutely no issues with application and I found them to be very smooth, silky and pigmented. I actually really liked all the colors that were chosen. I may make another order soon!

All of Tick:Tock Cosmetics products are vegan and cruelty-free! So that's another plus!

All swatches are over LA Splash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base. 

Cuckoo- "Cuckoo is a medium teal with light blue and purple shimmer."

 Never Sleep Again- "Inspired by Nightmare on Elm Street, Never Sleep Again is a bright medium rose base that lights up with a green shift and rosy sparkle."

Leap Year- "A light pastel yellow with gold and green glitter."

I <3 U 4EVA- "A fun, funky purple/silver with a strong green shift."

 Time Turner- A dark brown/bronze with sparkles.

I love all the different finishes of these colors. I need to pick up a full size of Cuckoo and I <3 U 4EVA. I do not see Time Turner listed on the website, sadly. I do not know for sure if this color has been discontinued or not. I just received my order within the last month, so it may just be a random color thrown in? Not sure. Leap Year and Never Sleep Again are in the Last Chance section, so they will be going away quickly. If you'd like to pick them up, I'd suggest doing so quickly!

All products can be found at Tick:Tock Cosmetics Website.
