I will be doing reviews on the following mineral makeup companies soon. Of course, right now I’m still trying to work my way through Halloween Colors!
Evil Shades is a small mineral makeup company that’s pretty new. I wanted to try their stuff after looking through their store and seeing their Witching Hour nail polish and Banshee lip gloss. I’m a sucker for pretty aqua/teal shades!
Lip Glosses:13th hour – Deep PurpleBanshee – Aqua/TealGuilty as Sin – FuschiaVenom – Black
Nail PolishBig 3 freeLiquid Evil – black with silver sparklesSatis – a dark greyed green with purple shimmer that looks anywhere from silver to green to charcoal to an almost blackened gunmetal greenWitching Hour – midnight blue with sparkles
Eye Shadow Samples:13th Hour, Banshee, Abyss, Suffocation, Venom
I purchased all of the above shades. Evil Shades was kind enough to send me samples of the rest of her colors. She also sent me her holo colors.Mysteria – purple holoDevil’s Bonfire – black holoErinnye – red/pink holoAcolyte – emerald green holo
They also sent me a full sample set to give away to one lucky reader! So be watching for a giveaway! It will be for subscribers only.
Last is Sassy Minerals. They’re a new company that only opened up on September 23, 2009
They sent me a ton of samples to try, though I do wish that they had asked me for which foundation shades of theirs I thought I’d match. I’m fairly certain that what they sent me is too dark, as they sent me Warm Light and Neutral Light, and I’m pretty certain that I would be their Fair level, not their Light.
When they contacted me asking me to review them, they said:“We promise, not one of our pigments is a simple repack or “watered down” and repacked pigment.”

*colors with a star by them are the shades from Sassy that I’m most interested in trying.—Have you tried Evil Shades, Stardust or Sassy?If so, what did you think of them?
I'd love to see some pictures of the Evil lip glosses on your lips if possible I really love the colours but would like to see how pigmented they are on.
Hi Lillian,As soon as I can, I will. I've got 3 video tutorials I'm working on editing right now There's not enough hours in the day!
wow so many different colors. Could you make a tutorial using some of the pigments? thanks
Hi Angela,I do have several tutorials up.Is there a specific set of colors you're interested in?
I'd never heard of Sassy Minerals until now. I've looked through their site, and I see several things I want to sample. I'd love to see the pic you took of their stuff in a larger size so I can get a better idea of the colors. *makes begging eyes*
Whoa! That's a lot of stuff to go through. I can't wait to read your reviews on these companies.
wow thats alot of stuff!could u please do a look using Ruby slippers – it sounds so beautiful
I am very interested in the Evil Shades lippies!
Hi April,Here's a link to the large picture:http://i619.photobucket.com/albums/tt277/decorativediva/DD%20Blog/sassy_large.jpg
Hi Squidmarket,The majority will be coming after I finish the Halloween stuff
Hi Angie,I will definitely do a look with Ruby Slippers, and probably Atomic paired up with it.
Hi Tally,I'll definitely try to get to them soon because I want to see how opaque they are
Yep, me too! And the staying power.
And it looks like many of the nail polishes make use of color travel micas. Which must make some really neat duochrome effects (one of my fav. effects ;)).
Can't wait to see your reviews of Evil Shades! They look like a company I'd love to try.
Hi Tally, Hopefully yes
Hi Lindsey,Yay, once I can get to them I will
I've been wanting to order some Stardust pigments for a while now, so I am anxious to see what kind of looks you do with them!
Hi Ella,So far I've tried the blushes and liked them.
