Chinovi Cosmetics Shadow Swatches

I ordered some samples from Chinovi Cosmetics. The 1/4 tsp sample baggies are $1.00, but you can also order 1/4 tsp sample clamshells for $1.25. Full sizes are $4.75 to $5.00 depending on whether you want a sifter.

I appreciate the larger font showing the name of the shadow. Lots of companies use the longer sample bags but with a tiny font. Old folks need large print, thank you!

The sample bags also give you any important info in the top right corner of the label, whether an item is not lip safe, not vegan, or both. Shades that are lip safe and vegan don't have anything listed, which is fine.

Shadows are all swatched with a dampened wet/dry brush on bare skin.

My arm is still a bit sunburned, and yes, it stings a little. These are all taken outside with no flash. These shades are all from their permanent color collection.

Nude Pearl + is a shimmery nude.
cin's note - it's a golden nude, with a sort of light metallic finish. Lovely!

Here's two more pictures, these taken inside with no flash

  2. I have a sample of Nude Pearl from before Chinovi opened & it's one of my favorites. I also like the larger print on the packages.
