Fyrinnae Interstellar and Wizardry Swatches

Nothing to disclose, I purchased the product.

Here's Fyrinnae's Interstellar and Wizardry matte liquid lipsticks.  I applied one coat on bare skin;  photos cropped & labeled but no color adjustments / enhancements.

Photos inside by sunny window, no flash.






I placed my order on 2/8 and received it on 2/25.  I hope you've found the swatches helpful, and thanks for looking.

ColourPop Megan Naik Swatches

Nothing to disclose, I purchased the product shown.

I bought this back in December but am just getting to swatches.


Shadows swatched over TFSI, photos taken without flash near sunny window.  Amira looks more golden sparkly in person, but didn't want to cooperate for photos.









And a blurry photo to show the sparkle




ColourPop's descriptions (my thoughts after) -

Onai - creamy white with blue violet opalescent duochrome in satin finish (perfect amount of blue violet, it looks slightly pinky cream on me, great shade)
Amira - antique gilded gold with multi colored and multi dimensional glitter in a metallic finish (super sparkly)
Lectra - deepened burgundy with pink violet glitter in a metallic finish (sparkly without being over the top)
Farah - deep brown in a matte finish (great chocolately neutral)

I hope you've found the swatches helpful, and thanks for looking.

ColourPop Cop a Feel, I Heart This, Hanky Panky, Bill, Girl Crush Swatches

Nothing to disclose, I purchased the product shown.

I picked up a few neutral ColourPop shadows about 6 weeks ago, but just got to swatches.




Shadows swatched over TFSI, no flash, by sunny window




ColourPop's descriptions, my thoughts after:

Cop a Feel - cool toned creamy beige with matte finish (great highlight shade)
I Heart This- cool toned silvery taupe with multi-colored glitter (it's much more glittery in person!)
Hanky Panky - soft cool toned taupe with matte finish (looks warm on me)
Bill - muted plum beige with matte finish (pinky/plum on me)
Girl Crush - mid tone true gray with matte finish  (lavender gray on me)


About an hour later I put a little more I Heart This on (over TFSI) and took a blurry photo which shows the sparkle.



I hope you've found the swatches helpful, and thanks for looking.

Maybelline Rebel Bloom Color Tattoo Swatches - Petunia Punk, Hibiscus Heartbreak, Black Orchid, Rose Riot

Nothing to disclose, I purchased the product shown.



I picked up four of the five new limited edition Color Tattoos at Walgreen's.  The fifth shade, Hydrangea Hype, was already sold, and the display at Walgreen's only had one slot for each color.  They were buy one get one 50% off though, $7.79 for the first and $3.89 for the second.  The four shades were $23.36 plus tax, so an even $25 for four Color Tattoos.  I love these for a base underneath mineral shadow or a quick swipe of color alone when I'm short on time.

These are swatched on bare skin using a wet/dry brush.  I've gone back and forth with the brush four or five times to try and make sure the color was even.    I've cropped and labeled the photos but otherwise no adjustments.  I did try to "brighten" them a little but I thought it made the shadow look different than it looks on my arm, so better to leave it alone.

Photos taken inside by windows in various rooms, no flash



These are some nice softer shades, but again, they're LE.  Walgreens has all five shades, other stores may only have two or three shades in their displays, so you may have to hunt around for the colors you want.  The Walgreens display had only ONE slot for each shade, and I've read stores with displays containing two or three shades have only one or two slots per shade as well.

I hope you've found the swatches helpful, and thanks for looking.

Morgana Swatches - Maleficent, Zaphara, Morticia, Sugar Plum Fairy, Red Velvet Cake

Nothing to disclose, I purchased the lipsticks shown.



These swatches are very overdue!  I took advantage of a 50% off sale back on December 1st.  My order arrived weeks and weeks ago, but I just haven't gotten around to swatching.  These aren't the neatest swatches ever, but I figured I'd take advantage of sunlight and a little spare time.

Photos taken inside by window, no flash.  No editing except for labeling the shades.   Zaphora (the second from left) looks a bit more blue in the photo than in person. I've tried adjusting the color but it only makes it look worse.



And another photo in a different room, not as bright.  You can see the slight difference in Zaphara, and my arm doesn't look so pale.


Sorry they're messy, but hope they're helpful.
