Venomous Cosmetics Bonanza! Flashback Collection Loose Shadow Swatches.

Before I start today I just wanted to say a quick sorry for the lack of posts recently, I've been working ridiculous amounts of hours and been a bit preoccupied with Christmas things when I have been at home. I'm not sure when I'll be able to blog next, but hopefully soon as I have lots I'm itching to share with you all! 


But back to todays swatches! I'll be swatching three of the loose shadows released in the new Flashback Collection from Venomous Cosmetics. I did get all three for free, but as a customer of the not so recent Black Friday sale - nothing to do with the blog! 





The Basics
This collection is compiled of loved eyeshadows from previous collections, so you may have seen some of these before! On the bright side the collection includes lip poisons and pressed shadows too, not just loose shadow. The loose shadows that I'm swatching for you today come in a sample baggie for $1 or the full size in a jar with a sifter for $6.50. 

 

The Colours
 
Thankful -  A bright yellowed orange with a very subtle green shimmer to it. Not something I would have chosen for myself but I really loved wearing it actually!

Fairy Godmother - LOVE THIS! It's a stunning minty teal with pale pink shimmer running through it, I am rather tempted by a full size! 

The Most Beautiful Princess -  Like Thankful this isn't something I would have chosen myself, but it's actually quite pretty. A muted hot pink with a small amount of silver microglitter and a shimmery finish.



The Look
It can't not include a quick EOTD in a swatch post, seeing the colours on an eye and what you can do with them always makes them seem nicer! Well in my opinion anyway, hopefully you'll agree! Anyway I used Thankful on the inner corner and The Most Beautiful Princess on the lid. For the crease I cheated a little and used a matte black from another brand (Sleek) and blended it out with Fairy Godmother. Fairy Godmother also was used on the lower lashline :) 




That just about rounds off my swatches for today and possibly for the next few days as well. But if I don't have time to post before Christmas I hope you all have a really great one and enjoy spending some quality time with the special people in your life! And if you don't celebrate Christmas then I hope you have an awesome day too :) Thanks for stopping by, H :)
