Spectrum Cosmetics Review & GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED


CLOSED, THANKS!

I'm semi obsessed with Indie mineral makeup companies at the moment and I seem to have amassed several dozen post of eyeshadow in the last couple of months...that's not counting the sample baggies.

My latest haul is from Etsy Seller torik2009 or Spectrum Cosmetics. The shop can be found here: www.etsy.com/shop/torik2009
and Youtube channel here: youtube.com/faerica7.


Indoors


Outside in sunlight.

These are the colors I got from left to right and all swatched over Shelly Frances primer:

Virgin, a shimmery white.
Vintage, a shimmery Dark Antique Gold.
Poe, a Violet purple matte.
Robins Egg, a shimmery Teal Blue.
Wicked, a beautiful medium Green matte.
Ferric, a dark gorgeous Blue matte.
Green Man, a vivid matte Green.
Freebie: Jaded, a super shimmery yellow toned Green.



Closeups. Look at Ferric! That color just turns my knees to jelly everytime I look at it.

*******For the BESTEST part! YOU can win a custom 7 stacker eyeshadow set from Erica at Spectrum!
Pick your favourite colors from a huge range of over 120 colors ranging from matte to semi shimmers to full on blingy sparkle! ********

Erica says: All of these products are 100% Natural Cosmetic Grade Mineral Pigments. They are PURE, and do not contain chemicals, fillers, talc, or any other ingredients that will harm you or your skin. Mineral Makeup is very light and it provides a barrier, and protects your skin from particles in the air, while still allowing your skin to "breath" unlike other types of makeup. Spectrum Cosmetics Products are also VERY versatile! When you purchase an eyeshadow from the drug store, that's what you get....an eyeshadow. When you purchase a pigment from Spectrum, you get a shadow, a blush, a bronzer, a lip stick / lip gloss, an eyeliner, and even a nail polish! All of these pigments are cosmetic grade! With the exception of a few colors ( noted in listings) theses are FDA approved to be used on the Eyes, Lips, Face, And Nails. Apply Dry for a shadow, blush or bronzer, apply wet for an INTENSE shadow, or eyeliner, or mix with clear gloss or nail polish and make your own colors! All pigments mix well with each other, so you can even experiment and come up with your own colors,that NO ONE else has!

1. BE A FOLLOWER...OF COURSE! LEAVE A COMMENT WITH YOUR FOLLOWING NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS.

    Hum, I smell something wrong, the swatches on the site and on you of Green Man and Wicked seem to be exchanged! Because I do really see the Green Man as an emerald green and Wicked as a grass green... Anyways, the grass green one, no matter the name, is my fav-fav-fav!
