Swatches: Darling Girl Cosmetics "The Black Collection"

PR samples.

In addition to the Halloween collection that I posted swatches of yesterdayDarling Girl Cosmetics is about to simultaneously release a new collection called "The Black Collection" that is inspired by the Netflix series, Orange Is The New Black. I absolutely love OINTB, so I was super excited when I heard she was doing this collection. It's such a fun idea.

"The Black Collection" consists of 10 eyeshadows and 2 glitter blends, and I've swatched each of them for you. As always, click on the images to see even more detail.

All swatches are done over Darling Girl Glitter Glue.

This first set was taken in direct sunlight:

Eye shadows - top row, L-R: Dandelion, Duct Tape Couture, Marzipan Nipples, Pornstache, Slocked
Bottom row, L-R: Squat & Cough, The Swirl, Taystee Girl, Throwing Pie, Tit Punch

Glitter blends - L-R: Pennsatucky, Red

This second set was taken in the shade. I typically try to do "shade with flash" swatches, but the weather was really strange on the day I swatched these, and the "shade" and "shade with flash" swatches basically looked the same, so I didn't do both this time.

Bottom row, L-R: Squat & Cough, The Swirl, Taystee Girl, Throwing Pie, Tit Punch

One thing to note in all of the swatches above is that the swatch for "Pornstache" looks really blue, when it fact, it's more of a gray with blue sheen, making it appear more purple in reality. About a week after I took these swatch photos, I tried to capture Pornstache on its own in different lighting, and was able to get a good swatch that is much, much closer to what it looks like in real life.

My favorite shades from this collection are... well... hmm... can I say, "ALL OF THEM!!!"?? Because that is what is true. It's really, really hard to pick favorites, because they're all so pretty. But, if you held a gun to my head and made me pick, I'd say Pennsatucky is probably my favorite--it's a gorgeous glitter blend. I'm also quite partial to Duct Tape Couture, Marizpan Nipples, Squat & Cough, The Swirl, and Throwing Pie. That's half of them right there, but really, I feel terrible leaving any of them out of my "favorites" list!

I already have a look scheduled to go up in a few days using some of these shades, so keep a look out!

Do you see any eye shadows or glitter blends in this collection that you want to get? Which ones really jump out at you?
