Hello Beautiful People
So here is a very quick review on the Chinovi Cosmetics 2012 Halloween collection and YES it is STILL available!! now for a discounted price =) you can pick this baby up for $20USD for the FULL sized collection -----> Here and YES I am enabling you all ;)
So Basically this collection was born from Chinovi Owner Vanessa's love of the movie Hocus Pocus which she has translated rather well into a shadow collection =) 
As with all Chinovi collections the lable reflects the theme for this collection the lable has a cute little christmas tree. When ordering you have 4 options all in USD value ~ Sample bag - $1.00, Clamshell -$1.25, Full Size Jar w/out sifter - $4.75 and Full Size Jar W/ Sifter - $5.00
Sample Bags and Clamshells look to have about 1/4 tsp of product good for quite a few uses. Full Sized jars average around 1.2 g of product. This Collection also has unique labelling =) a nice added touch.
Chinovi also list on each shade whether its lip safe or vegan making it easy to choose select shades depending on your intention of use.
I feel this collection dose capture the essence of the movie and the colours suit perfectly for a Halloween theme however are also versatile enough to be used in everyday looks.
Onto colour descriptions and photos (which is why you are all here i know) =)

Final thoughts: I feel the collection is very well rounded and quite pigmented, the shades are quite smooth and don't feel gritty on the eye. There are some very versatile shades also all of the shades in this collection would be fantastic to use in a smokey eye.
