Darling Girl Goodies, Mini Reviews and Swatches!

/ 8 comments
With Halloween only 21 days away, I've been watching indie companies with great fascination. Y'see, now is the time of year they all release their Halloween collections - bizarre shades, smokey hues, limited edition products and glitter by the bucket load - sounds fab, right?! This year, however, only Darling Girl Cosmetics (or is that, 'Darling Ghoul'?) collection really took my fancy...


I ordered four items from the Halloween collection, managing to restrain myself with that annoying little, 'You do NOT need more eyeshadows!' voice inside my head. I also ordered two colour correcting concealer samples out of curiosity as I've been eyeing them up for ages! The 'Gift with Purchase' for spending over $10 was also included, along with two eyeshadow samples.

[[ GWP Monarch, Smoking Gun, Ghost Light, ON-X, Apparition ]]

LOOK AT 'APPARITION' AND 'ON-X'. They're just so gorgeous! Don't let the swatches fool you into thinking I'm just being giddy, these colours are both more complex than I could capture. Well...perhaps not complex, just...sparklier! But we like sparkles. Yes? Yes we do. ON-X is a smokey black base shot through with multi-coloured shimmer and glitz, 'Apparition' is a bright silver with orange glitter and pink-green sparkle. I'll be pairing them up for bonfire night :D

[[ Poison Plum, Vampire's Kiss, Lemon colour corrector, Salmon colour corrector ]]

The colour correctors haven't been a big success for me so far - they're far too oily for under my eyes. They're very sheer, so blending them out fully gives more of a tinted pearl effect than a correcting colour wash, so any benefit of using them goes straight out of the window! I'll probably be using up these samples as subtle cheek highlights. 'Vampire's Kiss' holo-gloss really appealed to my dark side - sheer black gloss loaded with fine pink and purple glitter. In some lights, the tube shows a green-gold sheen, which isn't evident on the lips - but it's still pretty awesome!

Have you been buying any Darling Girl lately? Or from any indie Halloween collections?

  4. I love Darling Girl so much! I have been using her shadows non-stop since I got the Halloween collection. Apparition quickly became one of my favorites, which I was surprised about, actually! But I *need* ON-X. I'll be placing another order quite soon...

    @ The Peach, Poison Plum looks quite brown on me :( It will probably end up in my mum's stash!

    @ Mandy, I was surprised I like 'Apparition' so much, too! I'm usually way more into gold/ warm colours. ON-X is amaaaazing!
