Hello again Ya'll

So as you all would know the Halloween season is upon us and ya'll know what that means the Indy world is going mad getting all the seasonal collections out. A few days ago I got my Tick Tock Cosmetics (TTC) Halloween Collection luckly the weather has been kind and has been sunny (unlike right now as i am writing this the rain is pouring) this collection is one of the best TTC has put out!

This collection is avaiable now inthe TTC store and is selling for $25 USD for the 4 shadows and 1 lip gloss, However if your not interested in the collection as a whole the entire collection is avaiable for individual sale, the collection comes in 5 gram jars and are very pigmented and smooth to use, the Lip gloss contains 8 mLs of product.

I am also going to review 2 unreleased colours I recieved as samples.

The Collection arrived in a cute Halloween themed bag.

 
The shadows are as with all TTC colours Time related with a Halloween twist in my order i also got 2 samples of unreleased colours Sequal and Age of Dragons which I have also included in this post.
 



So onto the swatches I'll do the samples first shall we? OK so I have NO official TTC description so here we go

Sequal
My Description - A sand/peach colour with a Lavender blue Duo-chrome

Age Of Dragons
My Description - A red/brown shade with a green duo-chrome (this shade reminds me of MAC Blue Brown Pigment but its better)






 
Andd now onto  the colour descriptions

Deadly Nightshade
Tick Tock Discription - Inspired by Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, Deadly Nightshade is a bright violet base exploding with golden sparkle and shift
My Discription - A medium purple with gold glitter and a strong gold duo-chrome

Friday the 13th
Tick Tock Description -Friday the 13th is a bright medium coppery, golden orange with a fiery red shift and a splattering of color shifting green/gold sparkle
My Discription - A Golden Copper orange with gold sparkle and a gold shift

Witching Hour
Tick Tock Discription - A deep, blue leaning, forest green with slight blue shimmer and aqua/violet color shifting sparkle.
My Description - A forest green with blue glitter and a slight blue shift

Never Sleep Again
Tick Tock Description - Inspired by Nightmare on Elm Street, Never Sleep Again is a bright medium rose base that lights up with a green shift and rosy sparkle.
My Description - A Antique rose satin with a gold/green duo-chrome

 
 

 
 
 
Finally onto the Lip Gloss

Creatures of the Night
Tick Tock Description - Creatures of the Night is a gorgeous, opaque black with red and holographic sparkle! We've had trouble taking a photo that really does the sparkle in this justice, but it is absolutely gorgeous!
My Description - A Opaque Black with multi coloured sparkle.
 
 
I love this collection my favrouite shadow is Deadly Nightshade its a BEAUTIFUL purple and the duo-chrome makes it very versitile in looks I am also a fan of Never Sleep Again for the same reason. the Lip goss i found applied best ewith a lip brush for me personally the gloss isnt sticky and didnt dryout my lips, and so you can get an idea of how the colours look on the here is a look used all 4 of the eye shadows =)

 
Do you think you will buy this collection? Whats for favrouite colour?

Tick Tock Description - Our most vibrant pink, yet it is slightly blue based with red and purple sparkles 
My Description - a Bright pigmented Pink whick swached over a black base becomes a purpley pink, with Purple sparkles.
 
The One That Got Away
Tick Tock Description - Inspired by everyone's favorite Doctor!! It's a bright sunny yellow, that when used over a black base, shifts to red.
My Description - A Bright yellow statin colour with a slight red shift over black bases.
 
Showtime
Tick Tock Description - a midtoned blue with a green sheen and lots of sparkle.

Final thoughts: I love Tick Tock i am never disappointed with any of their products the Customer service is great, the only reason application is a little lower is that it CAN take a little bit of playing to get used to a loose pigment. the pricing is very fair and if you cant decide their samples are very generous

Hey All

I'm back YAY ;) OK so i am reviewing the Madd Style Cosmetics (MSC) Stardust Collection this is a Limited Edition Collection Black based collection with Colour morphing glitter and retails at $22.38 Australian so once I got it I quickly swatched them LUCKY the weather was  agreeing that the plain awesomeness that is this collection NEEDED to be seen any who onto the nitty gritty

the MSC owner Mo has described this collection as

This entire collection is based off of Neil Gaiman's novel, Stardust! Each color is black-based and features color-morphing glitter!
Mo has also linked some Video footage of this collection







If you would like to see video-footage of these shadows in action, please visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOrwT7dY7R8&feature=plcp

 
for all my Vegan's out there as with all the other MSC colours this is 100% VEGAN!! bonus =)

this Collection consists of 5 shades with YES COLOUR MORPHING GLITTER!!!! this collection while pretty was a NIGHTMARE to photograph as I am sure any other blogger or person who's used these colour in photographs will tell you... However I feel that I was able to capture the colours fairly well as I mentioned at the start this is a VERY photo heavy entry simply due to the extreme PITA it is to photograph well ;p but the colours are defiantly worth the frustration.
 





now onto photos and colour descriptions please note all colours have been photographed indoors with flash, outside in the shade and in direct sunlight I found this was the most effective way to capture the colour morph.!
 
*NOTE - all colours are swatched over a White base, bare skin and a Black base the Circle swatch is over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy*

STORMHOLD RUBY
MSC description -  has color-morphing sparkles that change from red to orange to yellow
My Description -  this black based colour took on a purple hue the glitter seemed to morphed more red and orange I didn't see much yellow.
 













 
 
TRAVEL BY CANDLELIGHT
MSC description -  has color-morphing sparkles that change from gold to green to blue.
My Description - the Black base took on a emerald green hue the glitter morphing Green and Gold the most strongly I DID see a blue shift but that didn't seen to photograph well









 


 
 
GAVE HER HEART AWAY
MSC description -  has color-morphing sparkles that change from indigo to purple to red.
My description - the black base appears like a dark purple hue the glitter morphing well between purple and red in some angles it ALMOST looks like there is Aqua glitter but I think the indigo shift must be a very light indigo and THAT'S what I am seeing.
 










 
ACROSS THE WALL
MSC description - has color-morphing sparkles that change from blue to purple to red.
My description -  the black base took on a indigo hue i can most clearly see the 3 colours morphing in this shade however it doesn't photograph the shift well














 

TO CATCH A FALLING STAR
MSC description - has color-morphing sparkles that change from blue to red to cyan.
My description - the black base took on a mid tone blue hue, the glitter morphing clearly between the blue and Cyan I don't see much of a red shift.














 
when I originally saw the collection I fell in love with Travel by Candlelight however once I had them in my hands Across the wall surprised me and quickly became my favourite in the collection. I know a lot of you may not be comfortable with black based shadows so I also turned all 5 shades into liner and swatched them for you so you could see another way to use the collection
 
*NOTE - the shadows have been mixed with Eye Kandy Liquid Sugar to turn them into liquid liner*
 
 








 
Annnnnd that is all as i mentioned earlier if this collection catches your fancy it is Limited edition and once its gone its gone
 
whats your favourite colour?

Final thoughts: this is a great set to help spice up your collection one of my favourite collections from MSC, i rated the application a little lower as for this collection you REALLY need a good sticky base (like Pixie epoxy) in my opinion to really get the full effect of these colours. for a glitter packed collection the set is smooth and easy to blend however I recommend PATTING this collection on and minimal blending or you will loose that pretty glitter.
