My 6 samples in clamshells, which I prefer over baggies, especially since I'm out of pots :D
I love the clamshell labels....BATTIES! Each one had a really good amount of product.
|L-R: What's This?, Oogie Boogie, Pumpkin King , In the Dead of Night, Nightmare, Lock, Shock & Barrel|
The Shadows: The matte shadows are pretty damn great. They are smooth, apply with a fair amount of ease, and aren't chalky. They are pretty opaque, although I would recommend maybe a white base for more POP and opacity with In the Dead of Night. I did have one exception, which was Nightmare, which is the matte black. I experienced some trouble with both adherence and opacity with this one, and I had a harder time picking up color with my brush. It wasn't a huge problem, but I just thought I would make note that I found it to be slightly different than the rest. Still, though, it is NOT chalky at all. And, surprisingly, when I applied it over Pixy Epoxy (which usually doesn't work great with mattes) it went over fantastic and became quite opaque.
The Glitter: Lock, Shock & Barrel is an eye-safe cosmetic glitter, and it is quite amazing! It's a little indescribable for me, but it's got tons of colors and I just love it, so see my photos to come to your own conclusions. It's super fun :D
Here are a couple eye looks I did using these products:
|What's This? with a matte white from another company on lid and Oogie Boogie under eye|
|Nightmare with Lock, Shock & Barrel as a liner|
