Altered Ego Cosmetics Review and !SWATCHES!


Happy ass Saturday Zombies!

I see a rain storm out my window, slowly making it's way toward us. I'm almost positive it's going to bypass us though...

I have an exciting review for you today from Altered Ego Cosmetics! You know, since I started blogging, I've reviewed A LOT of eyeshadow, colors, finishes, etc. And for a while there, I was growing pretty burnt out! It's companies such as Altered Ego that renew my love of eyeshadow. I get super giddy when a color looks "ok" in the jar, but once swatched it's full of sparkles! I love me some sparkles. These eyeshadow are FULL of sparkle goodness! FULL!

I was sent full size colors in Diesel, Aura, and Routine, two clam shells in Heathen and Bullet, and two baggie samples in Beetle and Honeymoon. I apologize for the lack of "product" pictures in this post. I am having lightning issues.
























The full size come in 3 gram jars and came with a sticker over the sifter. Full size are $2.75. wait..WHAT?! Yeah, that's right, $2.75! (Be still my heart!)

The packaging is simple, yet cute. I am a sucker for stars, so I was impressed with the labels. Also, the invoice and two baggy samples came in a cute little brown paper bag with a white star sticker to keep it closed. Adorable touch! The jars and clam shells were packed in a black organza bag.






























Descriptions per the Etsy store:

Aura: A medium purple with pink undertones with tons of purple and pink shimmer!
Diesel: A shimmery brown with tons of green glitter!
Routine: A dark grey with tons of purple shimmer!
Bullet: An awesome, metallic antique silver with pink undertones and an almost holographic glitter look.
Heathen: A light golden tan with golden shimmer!
Honeymoon: I could not find a description of this color on the website. :/ I think it's a medium taupe color with  gold sparks.
Beetle: A blue green with tons of silver shimmer!

My absolute favorite of this lot is Diesel. It's such a unique color. I love the green shift. I also really like Aura and Honeymoon!


























Yes, I'm very excited about this company! The price is GREAT, the colors are unique and soft. They're also long lasting. I swatched the eyeshadow over Pixie Epoxy and they lasted on my hand for a good 4 hours before I finally washed them off. Also, it looks like most, if not all of the colors are Vegan. :)
