Hello, and thanks for the thumbs up, mailman did brought me something today!
And I did something with my new goodies too, I did this:
So did you guess what the mailman brought me today?
Package from BftE cosmetics!
I'm doing looks for their get-the-look gallery, and they were kind enough to send me 20 samples and Mix & Fix as a thank you!
I love the colors, they are really vibrant and pretty and mostly really original (at least to me).
I found out that
Black & White:
This is really pretty dark color, with silver sparkles.
This reminds me of MAC Blue Flame. It has a dark base, and blue sparkles in it.
Amazing electric blue.This is one of the most amazing blue's that I have ever seen!
Sweet baby blue.
Niceblue shade, I think this shifts a bit to gray.
This is maybe really more gray than blue, but it definately still haves a lot blue in it.
This is quite awesome color too. It looks almost black, but it still manages to be beautiful teal :D
Bright green with lots of shimmer.
Even though this is one of the primary pigments, I kinda fell in love with this. It's really pretty, and I'm not really sure should I label it to be green, blue, teal or just something else :D
On the jar this reminds me a lot of MAC's Rated "R" and Chartreuse and Pagan, but swatched it turns out to be a lot greener:
This is really pretty "true yellow".
As much as I love bright colors, I have to say that this one really took my heart. This is just truly amazing. I don't even know why I like it so much, I just know it's BEAUTIFUL. It really doesn't show up as yellow, it's more of pearly color.
Peachy orange, reminds me of MUFE's star powder i have.
This is almost exact dupe of Ben Nye's Indian Copper. So if you want a cheap alternative to it, this is definately it. Check the swatch pic later in the post.
This was amazingly hard to photograph.
It looks red in the jar, pink-toned red in pic, and it's closer to rust than red swatched :D
Really nice color!
This is really close dupe to MAC Gold Mode pigment. Again, this is a cheap alternative for it :D
This is really pretty color, it looks golden brown, but swatched turns out that it has almost purple shifter in it. BftE website says it's: "Deep brown with black undertones and green and pink sparkles"
This reminds me a lot of MSCHIC's Metallic Orchid eyeshadow, which only means that this is really sweet purple.
I don't know why, but this manages to remind me of MAC's Parfait Amour and Cornflower mixed :D
I can assure you that the swatchpics won't give right to this one!
Well this is also one of the primary pigments, and this was the only one I already had.
I still think this is one of the most amazing purples I've ever seen.
And some swatches:
Here's in the sunlight:
And in natural (non-sun) light:
And here's the same photo, but with names :D
And here's "dupes, if you looking for a cheaper option for MAC Gold Mode, Ben Nye indian Copper or MAC Blue Flame. Never mind the Kat von D, I thought it would be a dupe, but it wasn't :3
And then the look I did with my new goodies:
MAC Painterly paint pot (whole lid)
BftE Gem (lid)
BftE Soleil (lid, partly on top of gem + inner corner + highlight + over the rhinestones)
BftE Bluebird (crease, blended to Gem + lower lashline)
BftE Atomic Teal (above Bluebird)
Gosh Extreme Art eyeliner #11 (small turquose dots)
Wet'n'Wild Megaliner (upper lashline)
MSCHIC Electric Blue Sea Eyestain (waterline)
BodyTalk false lashes
Pale yellow rhinestones from Pencula
I think I'll post my LOTD pics tomorrow. :3
PS. If there's this much work to photograph, swatch and "review" just 20 shadows, how am I gonna make it when my 70 Aromaleigh samples come?! :D
