A bit of Darling Girl Lovin'

One of the reasons I love ordering from Darling Girl is that if you make an order over $10, you get a gift with purchase, which is normally a petit eyeshadow that you can’t buy in the store. I placed a teeny weeny order from DG to pick up the lipsticks I was gagging to have from the Halloween collection (I’m going back for the shadows next week) and fell in love with Monarch, the GWP as soon as I opened it.

Eyes: Lid, Darling Girl Monarch, crease and lower lashline, dark brown from Sleek Bohemian.
Lips: Darling Girl Pumpkin King
Cheeks: Almay Blush in Peach 130

Isn’t it a gorgeous colour? It’s much more complex in real life – sometimes it looks more red, sometimes more brown or purple. Lovely.

While I’m here, I may as well throw in the the swatches of the balms I picked up:

Poison Plum
Everyone was going nuts waiting for this to arrive, and for good reason! It’s stunning. The first pic is one swipe, and the second is built up. I love this both ways.

Pumpkin King
Nightmare before Christmas? Orange? I had to have it. HAD. TO. HAVE. IT.

Wicked Game
This one was *my* idea! Little old me! I said on Twitter I’d love a lipstick called Wicked Game, and Susan made one! Awesome! One of the reasons the Darling Ghoul stuff is so cool is that most of them are ‘designed’ and  named by customers which is both really sweet and awesome and very savvy of Susan.

If you want to see ten billion awesome looks with the DG Halloween stuff, go say hi to Wendy!


  1. I love the lippies you got!! =) Plus you look amazing!

  2. I was so impressed with Monarch when I received it also! Very pretty color! Love this look with it! And I'm also in love with Poison Plum! It was the only lippie from the Halloween collection I ordered and I'm so glad I did!

  3. GAHHH I may need to buy Monarch from her somehow, some way. I've seen it on loads of blogs and it just looks gawjus. I love Pumpkin King on youuu :)

  4. Love the swatches for poison plum and wicked game, the iridescent sheen is so pretty!

  5. Oooh Darling Girl Monarch looks gorgeous. Brings out your eye colour.

  6. Love the name of Wicked Game, nice job! Don't you just love the H.I.M. cover? I die for it, personally. I love what you've done with your eyeshadow here, you look very pretty in the pictures.
