Some more Madison Street Beauty swatches!

Madison Street Beauty had a 70% sale starting on the 4th of Novermber, and I couldn't resist getting some more of her shadows since I was so happy with the ones I already had. So, I placed an order for a bunch of samples (some for me and some for my mom), and you'll see the shadows I got for myself in the pictures below.

Gold Leaf, Enchanted Forest, Pumpkin, Desert Sands and Plum all feel pretty much the same - they're all very finely milled and very easy to work with. I love it when shadows go on beautifully opaque on the first try, and you don't have to pack them on in order for them to show up.

Mossy Mauve is full of big sparkles, and will therefore work best over a sticky base. In the third picture below, I have swatched Mossy Mauve over my e.l.f. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer, which is anything but sticky, so the glitter particles didn't really have anything to stick to and it went on rather sheer. I then swatched it over two of my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils, which are a bit more sticky, and it went on a lot more opaque over those. I'm guessing that Mossy Mauve will work brilliantly with Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy... I'm gonna have to try that soon ;)

I can't wait to actually try these on my eyes! Especially Gold Leaf... I'm really into colors like that at the moment ♥

  1. I have never heard of Madison Street Beauty, but I definitely want to check them out - these swatches are gorgeous! Also, Mossy Mauve looks super intense over the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. I'm pretty sure I need Black Bean now, lol. =)

  2. Who would have thought the difference Black Bean makes underneath Mossy Mauve! Thanks Sandra!
