I follow, Mon Ennui Cosmetics on Facebook. And they posted a preview to their holiday sets...
Early Black Friday morning, I couldn't sleep. [Mostly because I had to be up super early because I am a retail slave and had to work in the wee mornings too] Luckily, my friend was up too so we were texting/FB messaging each other back and forth. We were talking about indie companies and different places we were thinking of buying from on Black Friday.
I told her that the first place I wanted to get was ________________. Yeah, I couldn't remember the name of the company! -_-; After much scrolling on FB and searches for every indie company I follow, I found it again! And like I said, it's for Mon Ennui Cosmetics. It was for this particular set, the Perfect Pinup Collection.
Honestly, I'm not much of a neutral fan but lately (you'll see in the future posts), I've been getting a LOT of neutral colors. Anyway, back on topic!
I had never ordered anything through my phone (err online, not by calling :P) before and was hoping I didn't have to log into my laptop. But I did! Yay!
I got this a few days ago. Honestly, I thought it would ship out later because of it being Black Friday and them having a big sale.
Anyway, this is what I ordered...
Taken with a flash >_< This is how it came in... I love the packaging! ♥
What the Perfect Pinup Collection came in...
How it looked on the inside... So beautifully packaged :)
Honestly, I don't remember if I ordered this or not. I'm thinking I did, though. I don't remember and I accidentally tossed the receipt -_-; I smart. But, it's one of the duochrome colors... It was placed in this gorgeous damask-printed bag. ♥
Here it is...
Everything is swatched over TFSI and under an LED light
Mirage - Umm... don't mind the fiber that got caught under the lid. That was MY fault. I couldn't help but check out the shade and I guess it got caught when I closed the jar X_x;;; So, please excuse ME. NOT THE COMPANY.
Mirage is a green with a gorgeously strong red duochrome
Now, here are the Perfect Pinup Collection colors...
Prim and Proper
Prim and Proper
Go to Gal
Go to Gal
Cupid's Wing - though it looks a little yellow-toned in the jar is a matte, creamy white.
Prim and Proper - is a soft salmon pink color with golden shimmers.
On the site, it states that this is a pearl finish, but I don't think so...
Vargas - Golden bronze with golden shimmers
Go to Gal - is my favorite shade. It's a plum-taupe color. It's got a satin-y finish. Whereas, on the site, it says this is a matte shade.
Chocolate Cheesecake - just the name of this makes me want a chocolate cheesecake. Lol. Anyway, this is a chocolate brown that's slightly metallic and very shimmery.
What do I think of the colors? Gorgeous! The finishes are very slightly off from the site, but that's okay ^_^; I love how everything was packaged and the actual products were very nice. They blended well, they're not sheer but quite pigmented. Though, it is a little more expensive than most indie companies but that's because they use 10 gram jars instead of the standard 5 gram jars. Still, I really like this company and the products I had received. My favorite color would be Go to Gal. ^_^; Mostly because those types of colors are my favorite and the satin-y finishes are also my favorite. ^_^ So, definitely, check out their store and their products.
