Stardust swatches

My friend Emily cut my hair the other day. I love it, she always does my hair so cute. ^_^ Here's an eyehance (I was using the Maybelline Earthly Glow palette). I got some Stardust samples I ordered in the mail recently. Here are the swatches of the colors I chose from the new Spring 2010 Simple Pleasures collection. From left to right: Sun N Clouds, Morning Grass, Juicy Flower, Goddess Green, Bliss blush, In love blush I LOVE Sun N Clouds, and Goddess Green is a really interesting color too. The blushes are pretty, but not really the right colors for me (I also am not partial to matte blushes). I ordered some other samples too, and this order has pretty much confirmed I need every Stardust color! I am always so impressed, the colors are so much more beautiful IRL than the website pictures capture. From left to right: Serene, Lady of the Lake, Tranquil, Turquoise, Sweet Spot Serene is a gorgeous and unique color, I'm sad the pictures don't do it justice. Tranquil is also the BRIGHTEST damn blue, sadly it didn't show up too well. I can't wait to use it with a primer, because it will pop. From left to right: Extragalactic, Magic Moss, Tender, Sunstorm, Moondance Isn't Extragalactic awesome? I was really "meh" about Sunstorm and Moondance until I actually swatched them, but now I realize how beautiful they are. Also... why the hell didn't I order any taupes when there's a whole section of them? *sigh* I'll have to get some next time. I would like to get a few full sizes, and I'm totally fine with that since full sizes are only $4.50, and LE's are $5.25! Have you tried any of the new Stardust colors yet?


  1. Yep, I'm in love with Juicy Flower and Crystal Nude.

  2. Sunstorm and Goddess Green are my faves! Extragalactic looks pretty awesome too ;).

    I was going to place an order for one full size color during their Monday sale (to test it out first), but the shipping was really high, like higher than the cost of the shadow. How was the shipping for you?

  3. Ooooh your hair is cute!

  4. Aah pretty colours! I still haven't ordered from Stardust yet, I'm spoiled for choice :(

    I like your new haircut :)

  5. oOo I love Extragalactic and Sunstorm. I have them in full size somewhere in my pit of makeup crazyness :D Love the new hurr :)

  6. Love the hair! And great swatches. Yet another company I need to research. LOL!

  7. Extragalactic looks awesome :D and your haircut is adorable

  8. Your hair looks lovely! And those swatches are beautiful :)

  9. Your haircut is so nice! It makes you look a bit older and more mature. In a good way of course. Your eye makeup is soft and sweet.
    So you have any TKB Trading mica requests for me to send with your package? I have almost all of them, so if there is something you want to try, feel free to email me a list (doesn't matter how many) and if I have it, I'll send it. :-)

  10. Love the haircut! And also Extragalactic - I'll have to be sure to include that in my first Stardust order.

  11. @Phyrra: I'm in love with Stardust in general...

    @Tally7: I have only ordered samples, and sample shipping is just $2. I don't know about shipping for full priced items.

    @RaeRae: thanks :D

    @Simone: You must order! The colors are so much more pretty in person than on the website. I love Stardust so much :D

    @KittenMittens: I need full sizes toooo!

    @MakeupZombie: aw thanks! I would love to know your opinion of Stardust once you try some products out. :)

    @SilhouetteScreams: When I saw it I went "Now THAT is chartreuse!"

    @Lillian: thank you :)

    @Blix: Thanks, I really love it ^_^ awww that's so nice of you, thanks!

    @kathyeffingjacobs: oh yes please do lol

  12. You are a very pretty girl, you look like Natalie Portman. However, I think that you should invest in a better concealer than the Physicians formula, as it looks too yellow on your skin making the concealer obvious. I like how you did your eyeshadow though!
