Stardust Cosmetics swatches part 1 & EOTD

I ordered "a few" pigment samples from Stardust Cosmetics ;) Owner of the company is Jenna and it is situated in Canada. In fact I wanted to order from this company earlier but Jenna just moved to Canada, so the shop was closed for a while and after that I wanted to wait for the new holiday collection :D

I took "airmail" shipping option (8 USD) and the shipping was quick (ordered 11/6, was sent 11/7 and arrived 11/16), I think this was my first order from Canada. The products were packed beautifully and labels are pretty too :)

Tilasin "muutaman" samplen Stardust Cosmeticsilta ;) Firma on Kanadassa ja sen omistaa Jenna. Olin harkinnut tilaamista jo pidempään mutta firma muutti välillä tosiaan Kanadaan ja oli suljettuna hetken, sen jälkeen odottelin vielä uusia LE-pigmenttejä :D


Valitsin hieman kalliimman "airmail" postitusvaihtoehdon, eroa taisi olla pari dollaria. En tiedä nopeasti Kanadasta muuten posti tänne kulkee mutta nyt kesti noin 1,5 viikkoa (tilattu 6.11., lähetetty 7.11. ja perille saapui 16.11.). Tuotteet olivat siististi ja kauniisti pakatut, tarrat olivat tyylikkäät.






Most of the pigments are Jenna's own creations but Stardust sells also "unblended pigments". I have no problem with that because those colors are marked with *. I even ordered some unblended pigments too, I hope I don't have those already ;) In fact, I'm quite sure I've had "Eden" before...

Suurin osa pigmenteistä on Jennan omia luomuksia mutta Stardust myy myös valmiita pigmenttejä. Näihin saatat siis törmätä muuallakin. Ihan rauhassa firmat saavat näitä myydä, kunhan vain kertovat sen asiakkailleen, kuten Jenna tekee. Kaikki "unblended" pigmentit ovat merkitty tähdellä (*). Tilasin muutaman ja merkitsin ne myös samaisella tähdellä.
Itse asiassa esim. Eden vaikuttaa hämmästyttävän tutulta...

Here are the swatches:


1st row: *Rings, Tender, Hematite, Cool brown (appears lighter in the swatch).
2nd row: Wood nymph, *Terrestial, *Brownie, Glimmer bark(Same style as my AL favorite, Solange, but darker)


1st row: Tender, Magic moss, Lepreschaun, cash.
2nd row: Seaglass, Lush, Extra galactic, Eden.


CRYSTALS & VELVET LE COLLECTION
1st row: Northern dreams, Dream cloak, crystals and velvet, Midnight blizzard (liner).
2nd row: Arctic whisper, cashmere mittens, holiday delight, heartstone.

And here is my EOTD:







-GOSH primer
-Stardust Cashmere mittens LE (lid)
-Stardust Holiday Delight LE (outer lid)
-Stardust Wood Nymph (crease, lower lash line)
-MAC Blitz & Glitz fluidline
-Shiseido mascara base+Lumene Excellenght

I really loved Cashmere mittens! I was a bit worried it woud be too orangey to me but no, it was just perfect! It was smooth and opaque, with lovely shimmer. The description is "Luxe ivory heated with copper pearl", so it wasn't orange but copper ;) No wonder I loved it. LOL

Holiday Delight was nice, but on a sheer side. I thought it would be darker but that the reason many companies have samples! Wood Nymph was also a bit too sheer for my taste and had to use it quite a lot to make it dark enough... But I think if you like neutral/easy colors, this can be your favorite :) I've heard that many like Wood Nymph a lot!

More swatches & EOTD's coming soon. Have you already tried Stardust cosmetics? Don't forget -15% code Slowship! Sale ends November 22.

Oi, ihastin tuohon Cashmere mittens sävyyn todella paljon! Pelkäsin swatchin perusteella, että se voi olla liian oranssihtava minulle mutta sepä olikin ihan_täydellinen! Sävy oli pehmoinen ja peittävä ihanalla kimalteella. Kuvaus on "Luxe ivory heated with copper pearl", joten se ei ollutkaan oranssi vaan kupari ;) Ei ihme, että pidän tästä :D


Holiday Delight oli kiva mutta kovin vähäpigmenttinen. Luulin myös paljon tummemmaki mutta siksipä samplet ovatkin! Wood Nymph oli myös vähän turhan läpikuultava meikissä ja piti käyttää aika paljon... Jos taas pidät neutraaleista/helpoista väreistä, saattaa tämä olla kovastikin mieleesi :)


Lisää meikkejä ja swatcheja tulossa. Oletko kokeillut Stardustia jo? Nyt muuten koodilla slowship -15%! Voimassa 22.11. saakka.
