Hey lookie! I did something!
Sorry for the wait — I've finally put together a review and swatches of a nice selection of Eccentric Cosmetics eyeshadows. They're quite lovely!

Eccentric Cosmetics is run by Anna, who is based in Australia. The shop can be found on Etsy, and features a great selection of both neutrals and more bold eyeshadows that appeal to a wide variety of preferences. Full sizes are packed in 5-gram jars by volume, with the amount of product ranging between 1.5 and 1.8 grams. Eccentric Cosmetics also has pressed eyeshadows available, in your choice of any of her loose shadow colors! Additionally, there are samples available of eyeshadow primer in clamshells. Shipping will depend on where you're located; obviously less expensive for Australians, and more expensive for international shipping. I recommend checking out the shop details for more information. Current TAT is between 8-13 days, which is pretty quick.

Pricing {as of 5/15/13}: Full sizes are $6.08 USD, while you can also get five sample baggies for the same price, or 10 samples for $12.17.

:::  MY OPINIONS  :::

I noted that all of the colors applied rather flawlessly; each one adhered well to bare skin, eyeshadow primer and glitter glue, with the glitter glue really bringing out the depth and sparkles in every case. Each of the shadows that I used in daily looks held up just as well {if not better} than any other indie cosmetics that I wear. They're smooth, pigmented and a great combination of neutral yet fun colors. A few of them really stood out from the bunch, and I have continued to use them frequently since I received them: Galactic Era, Planetary Living and Artificial Intelligence. Galactic Era is one of my new go-to shades for everyday, work-appropriate looks. Also, if you're a fan of yellow-hued eyeshadows, then I have to make a call-out to Higgs Boson — the green/aqua sheen and sparkles are amazing. While yellow tones make my pale skin look jaundiced, I know a lot of ladies who can {and will} enjoy the multifaceted look of Higgs Boson. Overall, I really love the products I received, and I can easily recommend Eccentric Cosmetics to anyone and everyone who is interested!

Have you tried Eccentric Cosmetics yet? If so, which are your favorites? If not, which ones catch your eye?

Stay Fabulous!
