IMAM Exchange Swatches | Part 3

Hey everyone! I hope your Christmas was great! That brands I have swatched for you today is Notoriously Morbid and Fyrinnae. I love all these colors and some of them are even becoming part of my daily routine. I have never tried Fyrinnae before this and I have to say I'm in love! Every color I got from Fyrinnae, I love and I can't wait to get more!

Description: A bright yellow befitting the riche with a perfectly lovely pink duochrome. 

Description: A sweet lilac with a sunkissed golden shift.

Description: A deep lush blue with a gorgeous silver sparkle. 

Description:  A gingery, deep maroon. 

Description: Varying hues of gold, blue, and green create a shade that appears dark sage, but light reflects different hues. A versatile shadow, but not boring. Graced with a sprinkle of pale green sparkle.

Description: Vivid, metallic Byzantium purple, unlike any of our existing shades. It's a warm bright purple, but still works on neutral or cool skintones. No sparkle, smooth metallic finish. More striking in person.

Description: Bold rosy and bronze sparkle on a sheer base turns lime green at an angle or closer to light.

Description: Vibrant pinky-peach blush with a hint of shimmer.

Palmistry and Mythical Dalliance are the two products that I use on a daily basis. I mean, how gorgeous is Mythical Dalliance? I'm so excited to pair it with different colors underneath. I will definitely be picking up more shades from the Exquisites Collection.

FOTD | A Neutral Look

Hey guys! So yesterday I had a bit more time before work to get ready so I thought i'd add in a few new products to my routine. It's still a really neutral look but I changed and added a few new things. I hope you guys like it as much as I did. Also, sorry for the lighting of the pictures. It was really ugly out but I wanted to show you guys so I had to take pictures.


  • Crease: MUG Cocoa Bear
  • Lid: A dark golden brown shimmery eyeshadow from CS Revealed Palette. DUPE: Smog from UD Naked Palette
  • Over lid color: Darling Girl Glitter Glue & Fyrinnae Exquisites: Mythical Dalliance 
  • Mascara: Revlon Bold Lacquer and Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara
  • Brows: NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown
  • Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear in NW40
  • Face Powder: Maybelline Fit Me in shade 360
  • Blush: Notoriously Morbid Blush in Palmistry
I love this look that I did yesterday. I am seriously in love with the NM blush I used. I will definitely buy a full size once I run out of the sample that I have. Also, either tomorrow or Sunday I will have a swatch post of the Fyrinnae and Notoriously Morbid products my gift exchange partner sent me. So tune in tomorrow and/or Sunday to check out that post.

FOTD | Green Halo Eye

So usually for work I wear pretty natural makeup but yesterday I thought i'd go a little bit bolder. I seriously love doing halo eyes. I feel like there's so many different color combinations you could do and you can either go bold, like I did here, or go natural. I wasn't really sure what colors I wanted to do but I decided green to try something new.


  • Crease: MUG Cocoa Bear mixed with a little bit of Bitten
  • Inner and outer corner: Shiro Cosmetics Lingered in Twilight
  • Center Lid: Hello Waffle Archean Earth
  • Mascara: Revlon Bold Lacquer and Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara
  • Brows: NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown
  • Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW40
  • Face Powder: Maybelline Fit Me Powder in shade 360
  • Blush: Sleek Blush in Flushed
  • Lips: NYX Round Case Lipstick in Cocoa
I was really happy how this turned out. It was a lot bolder than I thought it would be but I still love it. I know I didn't use that many indie products but I was kind of in a rush so I couldn't fiddle with sample baggies and lip brushes. Anyways, I hope you guys like it as much as it did!

IMAM Exchange Swatches | Part 2

Hey guys! I hope y'all had a good Thanksgiving and a fun Black Friday, I know I did! So this is part 2 of my IMAM exchange swatches. This time, the brand I will be swatching is Shiro Cosmetics. I was super excited and happy that my exchange partner included Shiro in my gift because I had never tried them before. 

**All the eyeshadow swatches are done over Darling Girl's Glitter Glue**

Description: Vivid, strangely metallic limey lightsaber green

Description: Warm, lightly shimmery orangey-red

Description: Deep maroon with blue shimmer

Description: Pale shimmery lavender

Description: Muted Tesseract blue with strong golden duochrome

Description: Blackened amethyst with bright purple sparkle

Description: Silvered royal purple over a blood-red base

Description: A twilit forest: blackened blue and green tones with slightly metallic shimmer

Description: Deep teal with very strong green shimmer

Description: Bright, punchy coral with light shimmer

Description: Moderately opaque fuchsia-mulberry

Whoo, that was quite a bit of swatches. Overall, I am completely happy with all the shadows I got. I will definitely be getting more products from Shiro. I have to say though, the shadow that surprised me the most was Mother of Dragons. The pigment is red until you swatch it and turns into a silvery purple. It was definitely a good surprise though.

IMAM Exchange Swatches | Part 1

In one of my posts I mentioned the subreddit /r/IndieMakeupandMore(IMAM). Well on that subreddit there was an exchange that I participated in. These are the things my lovely partner /u/JaneEyrewithSparkles got me. She did get me a lot of stuff so I will be separating everything into 4 different posts categorized by brands.

So, first up is Darling Girl Cosmetics, I haven't tried anything from them except for the glitter glue which is amazing by the way.

*These are all swatched over Darling Girl's Glitter Glue; except for the blushes*

Description: Was a customer designed shade inspired by the Green Day song of the same name.  Bright purple with turquoise shift and gold sparkles.

Description: Rich teal with strong green flash and a subtle shift to almost a periwinkle shade.

Description: A medium purple entwined with a green to pink shift which may even appear to have a slight blue sheen at some angles. While this color is dazzling enough to cause mass hysteria, there is no need for human sacrifices but dogs and cats living together is perfectly acceptable.

Description: Its Christmasy time downtown here in who-ville,

                     I'm Lefty-Loo Who, here to give you a thrill! 
                     See this color is piney just like your Christmasy tree! 
                     try it, you'll love it , you'll love it you see! 

Purple Haze: A vibrant red-violet with a soft red undertones and just the tinest bit of red iridescence. Finish: Satin

Little Mischief: Slightly earthy plum with copper sheen.

Kiss the Frog: Deep plummy wine with a soft satin finish.

Don't Eat the Apple: Candy apple red with blue sheen.  Makes a stunning eye shadow too!

Alrighty, so that's all for the Darling Girl Shadows. I seriously can't wait to start using these colors!
