Sent for review/swatches
Recently Innocent + Twisted Alchemy released a new collection based on the Card Captor Sakura manga/anime series! This collection comes with 6 eyeshadows, a blush and a lippie slick!
The eyeshadows are the usual formulation; extremely easy to work with, blend and apply smoothly! I had absolutely NO problems with any of the eyeshadows being patchy once applied over Brija Cosmetic's Adhesive Eye Wax (which is sort of a waxy tacky base). The blush applied and blended extremely well also. I was actually very surprised that the blush blended out so well and left a perfect amount of golden sparkle behind. The lippie slick absolutely blew me away! I expected this to be very gloss-like, but it wasn't! If I haven't mentioned it before, I'm not a slick or sticky gloss type person, so this was an extremely pleasant surprise for me. The finish is an almost semi-matte (in my opinion), but still has a bit of a gloss feel. It's kind of hard to describe. I've never experienced a lip product quite like this one. I absolutely love it though and the flavor/scent (Lychee) is amazing! FYI I did apply the product directly to my lips from the tube, then spread the product out with a lip brush.
I feel like I'm sort of rambling on now, but honestly, Linda knocked this collection out of the park! I've never been so in love with a full collection before. Anyway, on to my swatches and product photos! Everything (except for the blush) was swatched over Brija Cosmetic's Adhesive Eye Wax.
