Some Hi-Fi swatches
Hi everyone! I thought I'd show my swatches from my last Hi-Fi order. I did get a sample set of the Halloween collection, but I didn't bother swatching those since so many people already have. I did order samples of all the 1st anniversary colors, and I swatched them for you since I haven't seen too many other people with these. Top 3: Last Words, So What, Another Day Another Drama Bottom 3: Intoxicate Me, Adrenaline, Suicide Trees I wish I could capture the complexity of these! I'm REALLY impressed by this whole collection, especially the pinks! Last Words is a pale pink with a gold shift, a la Fyrinnae's "Rapunzel Had Extensions" (I don't have that one to compare, sorry). So What has a really gorgeous violet/blue shift to it. Top 2: Contradiction, Like a Hurricane Bottom 2: Verge of Obscene, Loser King I could not for anything get Like a Hurricane and Verge of Obscene to show up as gorgeous as they are in person! Like a Hurricane is this really awesome, shimmery blue-silver color. Verge of Obscene is a super dark purple, it would be amazing for a purple smokey eye. Contradiction has some crazy pink glitter in it; here's a close up so you can see it better. I also got 2 Spotlight Lip Glazes- Natural Assassin from the 1st anniversary collection, and Phantasm from the Nightmare 2010 collection. Natural Assassin is a HIGHLY PIGMENTED copper! From the picture I expected it to be more pink, but the description does say it's a metallic copper. Phantasm is a sheer pearl gloss, it's going to look awesome layered over lipstick. My only complaint with these is the smell... Phantasm is ok, it has a kind of fake-vanilla plastic-y smell. Natural Assassin smells REALLY plastic-y though, and it's pretty strong. As of yesterday my blog is a year old! :D How exciting! It would be better if this was my 200th post, but sadly it's my 199th, aww! I'm going to stay on my no-buy through the rest of November, unless it turns out that insurance will cover the new retainers I had to pay for, which it might! I really hope so, because I have some orders I'm aching to place. I hope everyone's having a great week!
