More Darling Girl shinies!

This is actually two Darling Girl orders that I made, one of which was for a sale or something and the other because I really really wanted some red gel eyeliner. I should note that the customer service was pretty good- they ended up being sent together, and Susan noticed that I had a few duplicate items. She e-mailed me to ask if I wanted to make any substitutions, which I did because I am pretty scatterbrained.

Bag of goodies!

Where do you even get purple bubble mailers?

I ordered a few full-size shadows, a cream liner in Crimson Queen, a bunch of samples, and a few Pretty Mistakes colours. She included a few other samples, the GWP colour for both the orders, and a sticker.

Triple Dog Dare is a sort of mossy foresty green with a purple shimmer. Weirdly enough, I found the shimmer didn’t show over PE, but it did over NYX Milk. Weird. Eerie.

I don’t mind looking directly at Eclipse. It’s a red-violet base, with a light orangey shift to it under certain lights. It’s one of the colours I like to use all over my eye and see what happens.

The Morbid Angel spectral shift can supposedly be used as an eyeshadow, a highlighter, or a blush. I’m going to play around with it a bit, since I am always looking for ways to make my face look weird. It comes off as a slightly gray-toned silver with a bit of purple sparkle.

Spellbound is totally different from Eclipse and I totally need both of them. It’s a sort of grayish purple, with a similar coppery shift to Eclipse. It’s a bit cooler in tone and a lot less opaque than Eclipse is. I personally am happy with just having Eclipse in a full-size, but it’s totally a personal thing.

Video Killed The Radio Star is a sparkly silver. Depending on the light, it can look purple, blue, or almost white.

Hey Mickey is so fine. It’s so fine it blows my mind. It’s a bright, cool red with a bluish silver shift in, which is all kinds of things I like.

Same arm of swatches.

Turning Japanese is a weird colour. When I put it on, it looked the same as Barbarella does there. However, in the light closer to the window, it looks a lot more yellowy. It’s cool but I’m not sure how to use it.

Barbarella is a light pinky gold with a bunch of sparkle in there. It’s a really pretty colour, and pretty versatile, I think?

Bio-Exorcist. Yussss. I love everything about this. I love that it’s named after Beetlejuice, since I totally rocked a Lydia costume this year for Halloween. I love that it’s a charcoal black with subtle shimmer until it’s over a sticky base, which is when it turns into a shiny blue-green shift similar to a beetle shell or something. This is good.

I Melt With You is a lot more subtle. It’s a reddish purple that has this purple iridescence about it that glows in some lights.

Safety Dance is not subtle at all ever. It’s a bright red-orange with a slight blue sparkle to it. It’s fantastically bright and opaque, if that’s your thing.

Strange And Unusual is also lovely. It’s a cool purple with a strong blue sheen to it.

Come On Eileen was kind of cut off by resizing or something, sorry! If it helps, this is possibly the least fun colour I ended up with. It’s a light blue-green with a touch of sparkle, and it was the only one I wasn’t really excited about. Still, I got the sample just for the name, so that’s to be expected.

Arm of things you can't get right now. Ha, ha, I win. Same primer order for the shadows.

The gel liner I ordered, Crimson Queen, came with a tiny brush. I found the brush to be too floppy for my eyeliner needs, however. It’s a bright cool red with a bit of blue-purple shimmer in it. I found it fairly long-lasting, even on my oily lids. It was pretty opaque, as well. However, I found that it did transfer a bit before it set.

Chick Magnet is part of the now-discontinued Darling Chicks collection. It’s a light magenta colour with a bit of subtle gold in there.

I am so sad that I can’t get a full-size of Vicar In A Tutu. It’s a light pearly white with a bunch of silver and pink interference, and it’s named after the Smiths. I missed out.

Wiggle was one of the COTWs that I got. It’s a light, pretty lavender with a bit of iridescence in there.

D’Lilac Sun is what I wanted Chick Magnet to be. It’s a light magenta with a super strong gold duochrome. I’m thankful that this is the one I got the full-size of.

I also got three Pretty Mistakes. One was a bright, shiny gold, one was a light, pearly pink-white colour, and one was a bright turquoise. I like all of them, and I think it would be really neat if there was a label or something saying which DG colour they were going for, in case I had it and could compare. I do like them, though, and think it’s a neat option for an indie to have.

So yeah- I’d totally buy from Darling Girl again. I probably will for the Black Friday sale, as a matter of fact. Beautiful shadows, and I was really impressed with the gel liner I managed to get my hands on.
