Detrivore swatches

All swatches done over Concrete Minerals primer. Top row: Hemoglobin, Misery, Lotus Middle: Sordid (highlight color) Bottom row: Artery, Slimy, Crypt Top 2: Gorgon, Saprophyte Middle 2: Harpy, Asylum Bottom 2: Dagon, Kraken I thought Crypt looked similar to Meow's Illegal in 50 states, so I swatched them next to each other over Pixie Epoxy. Meow is on the left, Detrivore on the right. They are not exact, but very similar. Don't forget, Urban Decay will be on Haute Look tomorrow!

  1. Those last two are very similar in the picture - hopefully in real life they are close cousins. That's the problem some times is popular colours everyone has for obvious reasons...but a lot of us run scared when we see cousins.

  2. Thanks for the swatches. I was thinking from the first picture "Ohh...Crypt is a pretty color!" But I have a f/s of Illegal in 50 States, so I don't thinki I'll check out Crypt.

  6. I just got Kraken in my last order of Detrivore. Love it but I'm not very sure how I can make it look nice on me without looking too crazy.

    Also Detrivore seems to not do too well with Pixie Epoxy right? I tried before with two other shadows and they seem to be patchy and I thought that it was just me.

  7. Lazypancakes- I actually don't think I've ever used any Detrivore colors with PE, mainly because I barely ever use my PE. But since PE works best with high-glitter or shimmer colors, I wouldn't think it would work too great with most Detrivore shades, since they have lots of matte or satin colors, but basically no shimmer/glitter.

  10. I only have a couple Detrivore shades but NEED to get more; my first (and only, so far) order from them was just for some neutrals. Contamination is a favorite for everyday wear; I absolutely adore it and the way it somehow makes my bluish-green eye color so much more intense. The texture is so smooth, it's like rubbing powdered silk on my eyes. And- I can apply it without any kind of primer and it sticks around on me all day <3
