Swatches!



Face products:



I did a look with all DWM products:

DreamWorld eyeshadow over Milani primer and Darling Girl "Fluff" eyeshadow base.




I used "Hecate II L" foundation my face. I think this was almost an exact match for my skin tone and applied evenly and blended smoothly. I used "Taken at Midnight" blush as well and a touch of "Mummy Glo" for highlight on the cheeks.




Here I applied "Zombie Smooch" over Milani's "Black Cherry" lipstick. It gave the lipstick a fun blue glow.


My thoughts!

I'm always hesitant to purchase indie mineral foundation because I'm usually overwhelmed by the many choices that are offered. I asked the owner of DWM to send her choices for my skin tone (lol) and I think she hit it pretty spot on. The foundation was a dream to apply. I used a flat headed foundation brush, which allowed for perfect blending. It didn't feel cakey and covered up some slight blemishes on my skin. I used no primer or concealer on my face before foundation application.

I really like the eyeshadow as well, every color was pigmented and perfectly blended. "The Awakening" and "Shadow Wing" are my two favorite colors from the bunch. I had a lot of fun playing around with the products I've tested so far and will post more in the future once I've tried everything.

"Zombie Smooch" was the only product that was a little tricky to work with. For some reason, it didn't want to come out of the tube. I'm not sure if it's too thick for the tube it comes in but it didn't want to stick to the wand. It's a pretty color on it's own, and gives lipstick a beautiful blue sheen.

I'm really excited about DWM. They offer an amazing array of quality products and something for everyone!
