Darling Girl Cosmetics: Darling Deer Christmas collection.

With a name like Darling Girl Cosmetics, how could I not try any products :) The logo is as cute as the name, the site has a fun girly, flirty appeal. All age groups and tastes are covered. Whether you want shimmery, matte or glittery products, there are so many to choose from.
The lovely Susan says this about her company "At Darling Girl Cosmetics we believe that everyone at any budget should be able to have quality affordable makeup. This is why we offer two sizing options as well as samples of many of our products. Petit's (1/4 tsp jars), Full Size (3/4 tsp jar), and sample baggies with 1/8 tsp. At these prices you could buy several jars of our eye shadow for the price of one high end eye shadow with the same great quality."
There is such a choice of different products, including eye shadows, eye liners, lip products, blush, bath and body products, just to list a few. I was impressed with the range, and had a full "shopping cart" in no time.

I appreciated the care of packaging, and processing was within an acceptable time frame. Susan is always quick to let customers know if there is going to be any delays.

When purchasing, I ordered a couple of collection sample sets. I'll begin with Darling Deer Christmas. Although this is a Christmas collection, some of the colours are still available for purchase.

DASHER: Silver with multi-coloured shimmer.

CUPID: Mauve with plenty of purple shimmer.

PRANCER: Light olive with aqua and purple shimmer.

WHITE CHRISTMAS: Light grey with multi-coloured shimmer.

COMET: Chocolate with green shift and gold shimmer.

DONNER: Pale neutral pink with mauve shimmer.

DANCER: Forrest green with gold and mauve shimmer.

BLITZEN: Pale gold shimmer.

RUDOLPH: Shimmery purple hued taupe.

VIXEN: Mauve.

JINGLE BELLS: Gold glitter.

REINDEER KISS: Plum with multi-coloured glitter.

In this collection I also received a blush, Berry Merry. Light blush swatches don't seem to work out too well, so you can view the colour here.

I used Prancer on the lid, Rudolph under brow and Dancer in the crease.

Here I am wearing Donner on my inner lid, Cupid on lid, lower lashline and crease is Vixen.

This is a fun collection, perfect for the festive season, yet versatile for everyday wear. The pigment is more than adequate and texture is good to work with. Although fun, the glitter is something I wouldn't use, but I'm sure that my teen daughter would have fun with it..if I don't add it to a nail polish first :)
Next post will be swatches from the Rainbow Brite collection.
