High Voltage Swatches: Norse Mythology Collection

Due to recent customer service complaints, long order waits, orders going missing and ingredient inconsitencies, I can no longer recommend High Voltage Cosmetics.
I placed an order recently for some Lip Candies (swatches tomorrow, or the next day) and Jasmine, the awesome owner threw in some Norse Mythology collection samples for me. There was a lot of buzz about these on Twitter so I was really excited to swatch them. All swatched over NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.






L-R: Odin, Tyr, Ragnarok, Freyr.





L-R: Snotra, Himinbjorg, Aandlang.

Tell me these aren't all awesome! Tyr has a much stronger blue shift in real life, I tried so hard to capture it! Similarly, Aandlang has a much more obvious soft blue shift, and Freyr is more purple. Tyr, Ragnarok and Himinbjorg are my favourites.

I'm really impressed with the complexity of these shades, especially seeing as there are 24 shades in the collection. I'm eyeing up Valhalla, Loki, Frigg and Vali!

I had a lot of fun doing my Fyrinnae week, so I'm having a High Voltage week starting soon! Keep your eyeballs peeled.




Man, it was hard typing all those Norse names up!
