<strong><span style="font-size: large;">For awhile now i have noticed the name Darling Girl Cosmetics throughout the beauty world reading blogs, facebook beauty pages, etc... Wasn't til I saw a look XoXo Alexis Leigh posted a month ago that I discovered what amazing colors they have. I had seen a few looks here and there using some of their products but this one had sparkly duochrome shades used in it. I was immediately mesmerized by them. I couldnt click on their website fast enough.
</span><span style="font-size: large;">Once I got there and started looking through the eye colors with my jaw dropping with every click, I knew I had to make an order. I decided to buy a few jars and also ordered a review kit which was on sale for a $1.00 (squeal!!). I thought that deal was super awesome for getting to try out 5 different products. I was going to order one of the lipglosses that looked awesome but they were sadly all sold out. I like that this site has a wishlist, so I can goto it when I want to order something and pick out from the beauties I had already discovered. I am on my 11th page.
Such cute wrapping!! I love the logo!!
This was the review kit I got. I chose 5 shadow samples and they came in the normal sample baggies. I believe each has an 1/8 of a tsp.
*Sweet Savage: Matte Midtone carnation pink
*Rich Gurl: A sky blue thats on the periwinkle side with a green duochrome. Its very sparkly!!
*Persuasion: Medium lavender base with gold shift and turquoise sparkles.
*Unicorn: A shimmery irridescent silvery white but when applied its a irridescent pale pink, maybe even a little purplish with turquoise sparkles. This was my favorite color I recieved. I already went through the sample and had to order a jar of it. :)
*Obviously a Wig: Magenta with a blue/purple duochrome. I love this color!! I think it makes an awesome lip gloss color!!

*Bronze Dawn: Ruddy pinky mauve base with strong gold sheen
*Leaping Lizards: <span>medium grey with golden green sheen that shifts to a grey with red/violet sheen
Thoughts: I love all these colors!! They are very sparkly. I find they work well with the glitter glue that I bought when i ordered from them a 2nd time. With all shadows I would say use a primer. These seemed to last a long time and are vibrant. I work in a stock room that only has a couple fans and no ac. I live in phx, so to give you a rough idea of the weather where I am at. I come home and my makeup has very minor creasing if at all. There can be a little fallout but not too bad. I love these and highly recommend their shadows. I can't wait to order more. I'm waiting til Sept. 6th to order some Halloween Shades from the Oh! The Horror Collection. :) I need to swatch these colors with DG glitter glue and will update this post with a pic.
