More Darling Girl Swatches!

This is order number two from Darling Girl, and I have two more orders to post swatches for in the near future. That's a lot of DG awesomeness! Thankfully it never gets old, as Susan continues to release new and exciting products what seems to be almost every-other week. If I had unlimited funds...well, it's pretty obvious how I'd spend it all. :}

:::  THE SPECS  :::

As I did in my first post about Darling Girl, I'll just run down the specs for the actual products I purchased, instead of an overview of everything in the shop {as that would take quite a while}.
I ordered the 10 for $8 sample set, along with Check It Out Liquid Kiss Color-Shifting Gloss for $4.75 and Sugar Rush Kiss Me Tinted Lip Balm for $4.75. The GWP was Dragon's Breath eyeshadow, which is a lovely evergreen sparkler that it appears I never swatched {I'll do it with my next post}. Shipping was well within the 14-16 business day TAT, and I believe it was under $3.00 total.

:::  THE OPINIONS  :::

As always, just fabulous. Sugar Rush is an amazing color that looks especially glowy and cute with my skin tone. The formula is really nice — not drying, doesn't expose every line and crease on my lips, and seems to stay put as long as any other quality lip balm. Similarly, Check It Out is just as lovely in color and quality, offering a great pink wash of color with a blue iridescence/shimmer that's unmistakeable. Just like with Sugar Rush, Check It Out is plenty moisturizing, and it isn't too sticky once applied. I had no problem wearing it to work, where I obsessively drink water frequently throughout the day — it didn't leave my water bottle a goopy mess around the edges.

As far as the eyeshadows go, I love all of them! If I had to choose just a few favorites, I'd say Whimsy, Ruby Slippers and Lucky {Lucky really stands out when layered over a dark base, which I didn't show in my swatches...my bad}. Part of what I really enjoy about ordering from Darling Girl is that the product pictures and swatches you see on the website are accurate to the actual color about 99.9% of the time. This makes it really easy for me to order without worrying about what I might get. Everything looks exactly like I thought it would, and often exceeds my expectations in terms of complexity. It's really such an effortless process to order from Susan, and I plan to continue doing so for a long time to come!

Stay Fabulous!
