Morphe 39A swatches

I talked with my friend and she will give a home to all the eyeshadows from this palette that I don’t keep, so I went ahead with swatching and depotting. I’m still deciding which I keep. I am so glad I swatched these because they are probably* the best eyeshadows I own. They’re super pigmented,…

Depotting Anastasia Beverly Hills, Morphe, Kat von D palettes

I did it! There will still be one or two more posts about the Morphe Dare to Create 39A palette, but here I will talk exclusively about depotting. For a moment there, when things looked bleak, I almost regretted my attack on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance and Kat von D Shade and Light…

Further doubt cast upon 39A

Summary: Does anyone want this palette minus 11 shades? 28A* anyone? ;D We’ve got a sunny day and in between bouts of migraine I inspected and compared and photographed Morphe’s 39A palette to eyeshadows in my collection. I am now more confused than ever 😀 Again I have not swatched and am not ready to do…

Morphe 39A

I believe this palette is going out of production? Anyhow, I had been considering to get it for a while and finally did. I’m still on the fence if I’m going to keep it or not. I have not swatched any shade yet and I’m gonna sit on it for a while (wow, I’m so…

Neve cosmetics

Another package! woot! BTW shipping took basically one day, superb service and delivery. And that box! What I got: Jellyfish*, Seahorse*, Compilation*, Red Carpet, Submarine* Oyster*, Tattoo The pigments (marked *) are of nice quality, comparable to pigments/loose shadows from other indie companies. The eyeshadows (both are matte) are so-so in texture, a little patchy…

Nabla, Kiko, Lollipops & TBS swatches

Ok, so it is still kinda dark, but we’ll do what we can. As expected, yesterday I received the highly anticipated (I’m not normally like this, must be the hormones!) Nabla package. I could simply not wait to swatch the eyeshadows… I took some pictures beforehand in artificial light, which I don’t really like to…

More depotting

I really should keep better inventory… but what a boring post would that be! Last Friday I depotted 10 shadows that had been waiting for a while, since I had run out of magnets. And palettes 😉 Last week I bought a new MAC palette (with clear cover), I like these because they’re pretty deep and baked…

More Kiko cream crush

I popped into te Kiko store the other day and came out with a couple more cream crush cream shadows, 07 and 16. Yes, I said I was not taken by any of the other colours offered (I already had 04 and 08), but they were at half price so I thought I’d get a…

MAC Pearled earth / Kiko cream crush 08

Some time ago I got this MAC eyeshadow, and I think I forgot to post about it. It is still potted so it must be after July when I went on a depotting frenzy. It’s from some LE or other and I don’t remember how I ran across a swatch of it on the internet,…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance swatch comparisons

I like to do these exercises to see how new shades I get compare to (or combine with) other shades I already have. It has the downside that I might then decide I didn’t need the product in the first place 😉 I think in this case I’m relatively safe though. There are a number of…

Too awesome

I won’t post swatches because they’re all over the internet… I’ll see if I can find any other shadows for comparison swatches, since those are useful.

Matte neutral eyeshadow comparison swatches

Now I think all of these are “neutrals”, because if you ask me, true neutrals are white, true grey and black. So these are anything but, they are all touched by red/yellow (brown) and/or blue (purple) – well, the KVD palette has a white and a black. But these are known as neutrals out in…
