High Voltage Goodness

Due to recent customer service complaints, long order waits, orders going missing and ingredient inconsitencies, I can no longer recommend High Voltage Cosmetics.
Recently High Voltage had a sale where if you bought ten shadows, you got ten free. I'd only tried one HV shadow before and thought it was about time that changed!

Firstly some swatchy goodness, and then a couple of looks.

Secrets and Lies, Pirate, Rebel Rebel, Born to Rock, Roadie

Sugar High, Solar Power, In The Spotlight, November Rain, Strutter.

Kiss Of True Love, Crazy Crazy Nights, Detroit Rock City, Final Answer, Dark Romance

Hanky Panky, Fairy Blood, Big Break, Tree Hugger, Broken Glass.

Some stunners here, aren't there? My favourites are Roadie, Big Break, Rebel Rebel, Kiss of True Love and Broken Glass, but to be honest, they are all beautiful.

Some looks now? Sure:

Very rushed look!

Lid: High Voltage Born to Rock
Crease: High Voltage Rebel Rebel
Lower Lashline: High Voltage Secrets and Lies
Outer V: High Voltage Pirate
Highlight: NYX sparkle dust (?) in Opal Sparkle

I LOVE Fairy Blood! Red shadows still seem crazy to me, so whenever I wear one I feel pretty badass. I paired this up with contoured cheeks and bronze lips.

Lid: High Voltage Fairy Blood
Crease: High Voltage Kiss Of True Love
Lashlines: Charcoal grey from Boots 17 palette
Highlight: Fyrinnae Nijiro

Sugar High has a much more obvious silver reflect than shows up here - it really is beautiful in real life!

Lid: Detroit Rock City
Crease: Sugar High
Lower Lashline: Sugar High
Inner Corner: Broken Glass
Highlight: Sparkly ivory from Wet & Wild Lust palette
Liner: Sleek Dip It! glitter liner in Carribean over Collection2000 Fast Strokes in Black

I'm really glad I finally tried High Voltage eyeshadows! The quality is great and there were some colours I received that looked so much more beautiful that I thought. High Voltage has sales fairly often, from what I can gather, so keep your eye out. The shop really appeals to me with its obvious rock theme - it gives me geeky thrills to scroll through the listings and find eyeshadows named after my favourite songs. I'll also say to my UK readers that, even though I've only ordered from HV twice, both my orders came in a week, which is freaking amazing. I can't wait to try more High Voltage products and was delighted when Jasmine announced on Twitter that the Lip Candies will soon be back... in sample sizes! Hooray!

Have you tried High Voltage? Do you have any favourites?
