Evil Shades Cosmetics Deviant Lipstick Swatches & Review

Good morning!

I hope you are all having a fabulous day. Today I wanted to show you something a little different from a brand called Evil Shades Cosmetics. If you know of the Black Nail Polish and Lip Gloss website, then you already know who Andrea is! Not only is she a nail polish and makeup blogger, but she has her own line of cosmetics out.

A little about Evil Shades Cosmetics: Andrea started her company three years ago when she began to get frustrated that she couldn’t find any black lip gloss anywhere. She decided to venture off on her own and create her very own gloss. After some trial and error, she came up with the perfect formula and that gloss is now called Venom. At first it was just a hobby for friends & family, but after two years she began selling not only her gloss, but also eyeshadows she had created. And a company was born!

All the cosmetics sold made by Andrea herself. The makeup is cruelty-free and some products are even Vegan!

The products I am reviewing today are from her lipstick line called Deviant Lipstick. There are about 12 different shades of lipstick in this line and I tried three of them. I have to say in all honestly, I was pretty blown away by how nice they were!

They come in black .15 oz Chapstick-like plastic tubes with a white label on them telling you the shade. But don’t be fooled by the unassuming packaging – these babies are REALLY creamy. I don’t know why but when I saw the container I expected them to have a Chapstick like, waxy consistency. I was really off-base. They are very moist and super opaque. They are made with, among other things, Castor Seed Oil and Olive Fruit Oil, which I think definitely helps with how smooth and nice they feel. They have a very mild fruity/candy scent, nothing overpowering or plastic-y though.

Milani Liquif’Eye Metallic Eye Liner Swatches & Review

Guten Tag!

Another Milani review! This time I’m talkin’ about their new Liquif-Eye Metallic Eye Liner pencils.

These were really creamy and lovely. Super opaque and soft. They claim to have have the feel and look of a liquid liner, but I didn’t really experience that personally. But they still rock!


In all their glory

As I mentioned above, these are soft, very easy to work with and great for smudging or blending out.

Milani Mechanical Glitter Eye Liner Swatches & Review

Aloha!

Milani has some new mechanical eye liners out that are glittery and sparkly. They come in 6 different colors, and I’ve got five of them to show you below.


Mechanical Glitter Eye Liner

These liners come in a mechanical pencil type of packaging, which makes it pretty easy to use. The tip is nicely pointed and the other end of the pencil holds a nice little sponge for smudging. I have to say personally though, I have never really used those smudging sponges that come with eye liners, I prefer a nice makeup brush for that.

Milani Infinite Liquid Eye Liner Swatches & Review

Hey there!

Milani has some seriously amazing new liquid eye liners out for spring 2010 called Infinite. They come in five different colors and have serious color impact!

I swatched these the other day and was pretty pleased with how much color these put off. I always am a wee bit weary of drug store cosmetics because a lot of times I have found that they are seriously lacking in either formula or opacity, but not these!

Sigma Makeup Swatches and Review

Hey peeps!

Have you heard of Sigma Makeup? Well I did a few months ago because everyone on Twitter and YouTube had been talking about their makeup brushes. They are very similar to MAC’s brushes, but more inexpensive. They are supposed to be really great quality also, but I can’t vouch for that because I don’t own any. However, they do have a new line of makeup out, which I have swatches of today.

The makeup line for now consists of 12 eye shadows, 3 blushes and 1 highlighter, and I got them all. The eye shadows are all sold in separate little square containers that you can pop into their palette, if you so choose. What I love is that the palette is open in the back (it’s like a frame) so you can still see the label on the backside of the palette. It’s also got a decent sized mirror. Very cool idea!

The color payoff is pretty good with these. They are very opaque and true to what they look like in the palette. My only complaint was that there is a little fall out on some of the eye shadows, but that’s not a huge issue. The blushes are seriously packed with color and trust me when I say you only need a little,  otherwise you’ll wind up looking like Charlotte the Harlot (a little Iron Maiden reference).

Onto the swatches (which were taken indoors so they look a little grey and cool sorry)!
