Venomous Cosmetics Main Collection & January Color of the Month Eyeshadow Swatches

Hey everyone,

I still have some Venomous Cosmetics eyeshadows from the 2013 Collection and their Spaced Out Collection to swatch and review but I wanted to get this set up since I swatched the limited edition January Color of the Month.

Where to purchase: Venomous Cosmetics
Price: Samples are 1/4 tsp for $1.00 and full size is a 5 gram jar for $6.50. 
Cruelty Free? They are cruelty-free.
Packaging: Samples are packaged in a plastic ziploc bag and full sizes are packaged in a 5 gram jar with a sifter.

Swatches:

As always, the eyeshadows were swatched dry over Too Faced Shadow Insurance and photos were taken in natural daylight. 

Venomous Cosmetics main collection and January color of the month

Gila Monster: "Light orangey coral" I'd say this is more orange than coral but there is a hint of coral, there's also a bit of an orange sheen to it too. 

Salmon Pink Birdeater: "Light salmon pink" I'd say this is pretty much spot on as a salmon pink, maybe with a hint more baby pink. 

Thai Black: "Deep black with slight glitter" I can't seem to find this eyeshadow on the site, I'll ask to see if it's going to be added on. It is a basic black with a bit of glitter but I wasn't so fond of the texture, I felt like it was a little clumpy.

January's Color of the Month

Remember: "Medium purple with gold shimmer" Purples are difficult to do; matte purples with sparkles even more so. For best results, pat the eyeshadow on with a flat brush (do not sweep) and it'll keep its vibrant color. I was reminded of Darling Girl's Persuasion eyeshadow but the base purple is slightly different and the glitter in Persuasion is more of a flakie glitter.

Of the four, Remember is probably my favorite although it does take some work to get it to look as nice.
