I Heart Darling Girl (Swatches!)

I don't quite have enough Darling Girl to do a Love Week for them yet, but I'm getting there! I got an adorable package from them today and had to swatch everything for you guys right away!

Loving the cute note from Susan and the new labels on the jars.

I ordered:
'Pinky Swear' Colour Changing Liquid Kisses (mini)
'Azalea' Soft Focus Blush (mini)
'Yes, Virginia' Soft Focus Blush (mini)

Samples of:
Saddle Up, Black Arabian, My Little Pony, Mr Ed, Mustang, Unicorn, Dapple, Sea Biscuit, A Horse With No Name.

And I recived a mini jar of 'Clusterfluff' as GWP, an unnamed sample, a sample of 'Wallflower' Kiss Me Tinted Lip Balm, and a sample of 'Polynesian Paraside' Sweet Lips Sugar Scrub. Not bad! Let's have a butchers - click to make them bigger.

 'Wallflower' Kiss Me Tinted Lip Balm. Pretty tinted for a lip balm - it even has a blue shift! The most gorgeous balm I've come across, that's for sure.

'Pinky Swear' Colour Shifting Liquid Kisses. I bought this because I really, really wanted a more wearable gloss with a blue shift - I have Ultra Phantom by Fyrinnae, and it's just too blue.

Left, 'Yes, Virginia,' Soft Focus Blush, right, 'Azalea' Soft Focus Blush. Struggled to capture these, sorry! I adore Darling Girl blushes and I've been looking for colours I can wear with purple lips lately. 'Azalea' is a hot raspberry, 'Yes, Virginia' is a pinky-lilac.Can't wait to try them out.

Left, unnamed colour. Right, 'Clusterfluff.' Best name ever, amirite?! To me, it's a lilac-ish silver with pink and blue sparkels. It reminds me a little of Fyrinnae Calavera Cupcakes - I think they might be very pretty together. 'Clusterfluff' is a GWP shade which I don't think always get made permanent, so should you see one you like, nab it! The unnamed shade has a green shift with aqua sparkles - so, so pretty.

Left to right: 'A Horse With No Name,' 'Sea Biscuit,' 'Dapple,' 'Unicorn'.

Left to right: 'Mustang,' 'Mr Ed,' 'My Little Pony,' 'Black Arabian,' 'Saddle Up.'

These are all the shadows from 'All The Pretty Little Horses' collection, with the exception of 'Black Beauty.' I didn't buy it because, even though I was only getting sample sizes ($0.60, baby!) I so rarely wear black eyeshadows I  didn't see the point. My faves are 'Mustang,' a gorgeous plum-brown with a pinky sheen, 'Mr Ed,' a slightly peachy gold, and 'My Little Pony,' a soft lilac with green shift, which everyone has been going totally nuts for. As per usual, swatches do it no justice! I think 'Saddle Up' and 'A Horse With No Name' would be a really pretty combo with winged liner and red lips. Overall, I think this is an awesome collection - I love neutrals with that little something extra! Sadly no looks from me as I literally got this package, swatched it, posted it. I'm off on holiday at stupid o'clock this morning, I'll be back next  weekend.

If you've never tried an indie company before, I'd really recommend Darling Girl as there's genuinely something for everyone, (while I love geeky, gothic, silly named products, etc, I know they're not always for everyone) and the majority of products have samples and/or mini sizes starting from $0.60, which is awesome!

  6. Her prices are AMAZING. I have a small order coming to me that I'm really excited about. It feels like I ordered a good amount of things and I think I paid like $13 with shipping. Susan seems really nice, too. These are the types on indie companies I love supporting.
