Lionesse Beauty Bar "Eye Shimmers".


Happy Halloween everyone!

I hope you're having a nice day and getting ready for tricks and treats!

This afternoon I am going to reviewing 3 of the new eye shimmers (loose eyeshadow) from Lionesse Beauty Bar. I received the following shades- SH-10, SH-15, and SH-10. Because is isn't much of a description on the website regarding what the letter/number combos stand for, I'm going to assume that the "S" stands for shimmer. The three shades I received are PACKED with sparkle.

The website lacks descriptions for each shade so I've given you my descriptions.

SH-30 is a warm berry with tons of silver sparkle
SH-15 is a beautiful taupe with lots of silver sparkle
SH-10 is a soft rose with silver sparkle

Each jars contains 2.5 grams of product and cost $15.00 per jar. I say for $15.00 you are definitely getting your money's worth. While the colors don't have me squealing with delight, I do like the sparkle throughout each shade and I also love how blend-able and surprisingly pigmented they are, especially SH-30. I see this trio being wonderful for every day wear or for those who love a more neutral color palette. I also see these jars lasting a very long time!
My only complaint is that the website offers no descriptions for the shades and the eyeshadow do not have names to refer to, nor does the website inform you what the letters/numbers stand for. I hope that's something that Lionesse will be working on.

Lionesse also offers an array of other makeup and skin care products! Check them out!

What do you think of the colors I've swatched today?

Sugar Skull Minerals "Bejeweled Collection"!

Good evening Zombies!

I have swatches of the latest "Bejeweled" collection from Sugar Skull Minerals. Bejeweled was released on 10/03 so it's brand new!

There are 6 jeweled toned shades in this collection- all shimmer, no heavy sparkle.

Chocolate Pearl - Light chocolate/tan with multi-colored reflects.
Verdelite - (vegan) A light, shiny emerald green.
Amethyst - Dark amethyst purple.
Garnet - Deep dark red.
Star Sapphire - (vegan) Royal blue
Citrine - (vegan) A rich goldenrod.

I am in LOVE with Garnet. It is such a rich garnet shade and so easy to blend! Next up in my favorite is Amethyst, because purple. These shades are lovely and pigmented and each have a nice sheen to them. None of the colors are overly sparkly and are perfectly "bejeweled."

You can grab the entire collection in sample baggies for only $7.25 or individual jars! Check out the Etsy store for more!

Do you see a color here that you'd like bejewel your eyes with?
