Eyeshadow, Swatches - September 5th, 2011
I am NOT the swatch queen by any means. But the owner of Cinnamon Cosmetics included some samples for me to try with the products she sent for my blog giveaway, and I want to share!
I didn’t want to wait for daylight, so these are taken with flash, which does change things a bit. But you get the idea. The first color, Celestial, is really lovely. The photo doesn’t do the color-shifting nature of this shade justice. I really can’t wait to try it in an EOTD. Chocolate Lab is a color I REALLY want. It’s a warm chocolate brown that is smooth like butter. Chocolate Lab is actually part of a collection of neutrals that I really want – the Gone To The Dogs collection. German Shepherd looks soooo nice! Dusk is a nice light grey shimmer color. Crusher is a very deep color, and a bit finicky to get nice and even. But it’s a lovely almost navy blue.
When Cinnamon Cosmetics changed their name from Cinnamon Candies, a few product names changed too. The color Brandywine that I have (seen here) is now called Tank. The new Brandy Wine is a lovely, sparkly wine color. The Eye looks similar, but the main difference is Brandy Wine is quite sparkly and The Eye is not. Old Forest is a nice dark green with shimmer. Beledi is a nice coppery-brown color.
I’m most interested in trying out Celestial, and also Chocolate Lab, but all these colors are really pretty!
