Happy Friday Zombies!

It's beautiful and overcast here in New Mexico today. The perfect weather to blog about the new Fall Collection from Sugar Skull Minerals!  I was lucky enough to receive samples from Victoria of this collection to play with an swatch for you all. Here we go!

There are 8 beautifully blended earth toned colors in this collection.  (descriptions from Etsy store)

Maize: Orange/gold with a warm mauve base. (vegan)
Whiskey Tango: Orange/brown with red/gold reflects. (vegan)
Rust: Metallic gold/copper with lots of copper reflects. (vegan)
Cider: Copper toned light brown. (vegan)

Man, I adore this collection! The colors are so typically "Fall" and I love the names. What's neat about this collection in the amount of sparkle some of the shades give off. Each color is unique and very easy to apply and also very pigmented. I've tried several colors from SSM and I have to say, this is so far my favorite lot of colors.

"Dusty" has tons of blue sparkles that show up around the edges of the shadow. "Candle Lit" kind of glows from the inside out. "Apple Jack" is an awesome maroon shade with lots of sparkles and "Whiskey Tango" is an great rusted brown shade with TONS of sparkle. It's so pretty!

Of course, I have to touch on "Sushi" as well, because, LOOK AT IT. Usually eyeshadow pigment with a heavy matte black base tend to blend down into a dull mess. This eyeshadow has so much dimension and sparkle that even with blending, it held it's color and sparkle. I was amazed.

I'm pretty sure everyone needs something from the SSM Fall 2014 Collection!
