Love Hues: Review | Swatches

Love Hues has some *lovely* eyeshadows. I stumbled upon Love Hues while browsing Etsy, not looking for anything in particular. The product images really caught my attention, as they use swatches of the colors as their main thumbnail pictures, so you can tell immediately when looking at the search results whether you're interested or not. A handful of colors really stood out, and after doing a basic Google search and not finding any bad news bears reviews, I decided to give 'em a try.

:::  THE SPECS  :::

I purchased a sample set of 10 eyeshadows for $8.50, and received an extra two samples as freebies. The shop is easy to go through, separated into categories by color and collections.
Details are as follows:

:::  $5.99 for a 5-gram jar of eyeshadow with 1 gram of product, packed by weight.
:::  Sample baggies are available in sets of 5, 10 or 15, and each sample has 1/8 of a teaspoon of product.
:::  Shipping for U.S. orders is $1.75 for the first item and $0.10 for each additional item.
:::  Shipping for International orders is $3.00 for the first item and $0.10 for each additional item.
:::  The shop policies page states that all orders are mailed out within two (2) business days of purchase.

My order was shipped within 24 hours of the purchase, and I received it in a mere two days via USPS. This was one of the quickest TATs that I've experienced thus far.

*Additional Note: My camera picked up an abnormally warm tone in the Natural Light pictures, but I didn't want to adjust the colors/balance at all in case it distorted the swatches.*

:::  THE OPINIONS  :::

I'm in *love* with Opaline Moonstone. It's an amazing color that's unique yet versatile, and like all of the Love Hues eyeshadows I purchased, it applies effortlessly and blends easily. I'm also fond of Sunrise Pink, which I believe could also be used as a blush if applied lightly. Even though pink is my favorite color, it's a color that usually doesn't look great with my fair skin tone and blue eyes — but Sunrise Pink has worked really well! All of the colors, when worn over UDPP and either NYX Jumbo Pencil or Maybelline Color Tattoo, seem to last all day and long into the night. Overall, Love Hues doesn't have too many wild and crazy colors, but moreso a great mix of shimmery neutrals and some nice color pops. I plan to purchase the full sizes of Opaline Moonstone, Dove Grey, Sunrise Pink and Underwater Chameleon in the near future.

Have you tried Love Hues? If so, which colors were your favorites?

Stay Fabulous!
