For Black Friday I bought myself a few Darling Girl Cosmetics Eyeshadows. I had been wanting some of these shades for quite some time and although two of the colors I'm swatching may not be available anymore (one was an old GWP and the other a Black Friday color), I thought I would swatch it anyway for reference's sake (and in case you want the GWP to become permanent!)
Price: $2.50 for 1/4 tsp or $5.90 for a full size jar containing 3/4 tsp.
Do they test on animals?: The company does not nor do they sell in countries that require animal testing.
Packaging: The petit size comes in a 3 gram jar and the full size comes in a 5 gram jar with a sifter.
The eyeshadows were applied dry over Too Faced Shadow Insurance. The pictures were taken in natural daylight.
Black Moon: "Sooty green base with orange red flash and a shift to a golden green" In my swatch you primarily see the green base but on the left side of the swatch you can see the orange red and the right side of the swatch shows the golden green.
Eclipse: "Blackened red with undertones of coppery gold and a sprinkling of copper sparkle" This is a black with a red sheen and golden sparkle. You may find that using a base or a glitter adhesive will enhance the sheen and sparkles.
Just Harried: "Champagne with subtle blue sparkles" This is a part of the upcoming My Three Witches (themed after the tv series Charmed!) collection. I did think this was a little sheerer than the other shimmery shades but is still beautiful.
Mistle Taupe* LE GWP: "Silvery brown with gold undertones, gold iridescence and copper sparkle". I actually think this is more like a dove grey with a gold/copper sparkle. It isn't available anymore but I've heard people say they wish it was permanent so maybe it will become permanent.
Tank Taupe: "Light matte taupe brown" On me, it does pull a little cooler than the website swatch. I haven't tried many loose matte eyeshadows but I do think this works best over a white eyeshadow base like NYX Milk. I thought it was a little sheer over a primer and had to be built up.
Who Cares, It's on Sale!* Black Friday Exclusive: "Grey brown with aqua sparkles" Again this was limited edition but for reference's sake I thought I'd still post it.
I hope you enjoyed this swatch post!
