Awhile ago, Facebomb Cosmetics had a sale. Buy 1, Get 1 Free! I used that opportunity to purchase some collections that I had been eyeing for awhile O_O;
I'm checking their site right now and I can't find the collections any more. I see some of the shades sold separately, but not the whole collections. The ones I purchased were: the Legend of Zelda vol 2 and the Empire Sparkles Back (lol! cute name :D)
Let's start with the Legend of Zelda vol 2
Oracle of Seasons
Kotake & Koume
L-R: Kotake & Koume
Kotake is a soft shimmery pink
Kotake is a violet with a blue shift and has blue and white sparkles
Happy Mask Sales Man
Oracle of Ages
L-R: Happy Mask Sales Man & Oracle of Ages
Happy Mask Sales Man is a medium blue with a metallic-y blue sheen running through it
Oracle of Ages is a shimmery sky blue
Dark Link is the shade I wanted the most when I saw someone else do a swatch of it. O_o; My swatch doesn't do this shade justice! Dark Link is a gorgeous dark forest green that has red, white, gold, and red sparkles throughout it.
Now, we'll look at the Empire Sparkles Back (hehehe! I can't get over this name :D)
I Am Your Father (sorry for the crap photo! It was the only way I could capture the sparkles)
L-R: Lando's Betrayal, HOTH, and I Am Your Father
Lando's Betrayal is a true blue with slight shimmers
HOTH is a beautiful satin-y white shade
I Am Your Father is a soft black with blue and gold sparkles
My Backpacks Got Jets
Oracle of Secrets [AH! This was supposed to be in the Legend of Zelda vol 2 set...WHOOPS! Maybe I just wanted to confuse you ;D]
L-R: My Backpacks Got Jets, Carbonite, and Oracle of Secrets
These swatches didn't turn out well in my lighting. I guess it's because they're quite metallic.
My Backpacks Got Jets is a light gray with a metallic sheen
Carbonite is a medium charcoal with a slight purple undertone and also has a metallic sheen
Oracle of Secrets is a sheer light shimmery green. This one comes out a bit frosty
Imma Firin Mah Lazer!
[This was a freebie]
L-R: I Know & Imma Firin Mah Lazer!
I Know is a soft blue-based pink that's quite satin-y
Imma Firin Mah Lazer! is a shimmery green with a slight golden sheen
Overall, I really like Facebomb's formula. From what I have, the colors are beautiful and unique (Hello! Dark Link anyone? :D~) and are easy to blend. It's not as "creamy" as a lot of other companies' formulas but it's not like it's chalky or chunky or hard to blend or apply. ^_^
