I’ve had no sun in my part of Florida for the past several days. It’s been raining on and off every single day. While I love the rain, this makes swatching a pain.

      Thanks for this, Phyrra. The swatches look gorgeous, especially Flame (you don’t know how long I’ve been on the hunt for a good red.) Must hunt for a review on this company. How big are sample sizes? Is international shipping expensive? Thanks :)

      • Phyrra

        You’re quite welcome! I’ve reviewed them, I like them :)

    • http://dazzleglam.blogspot.com Molly

      Which are you favorite colors? I haven’t bought from them yet, but I’d really like to. I just like opinions to go off of while purchasing.

      Thanks!

      the swatches are lovely by the way!

      • Phyrra

        Just added my favorites up there for ya :) And thank you, it’s so hard to swatch without direct sunlight.

    • http://www.twitter.com/pretty_serious Lena

      Wow, lots of gorgeous colors there! Very nice swatches.

      • Phyrra

        Yay, which are your favs?

        • http://www.twitter.com/pretty_serious Lena

          I’m really digging Scandal, Sizzle, Go, Charmed, Vida, Aubergine, Cherry Blossom, Retro, Cabana, Mojave, Slick, Metero and Flair. I wish they offered samples, but I can understand why they don’t…I just feel like I have so many full-sized jars already. urgh. It’s hard for me to convince myself that I really, really need ANOTHER one. (But, somehow, I usually manage to do just that…)

    • Molly

      Thanks so much for the list!!

      • Phyrra

        You’re quite welcome :)

    • http://dazzleglam.blogspot.com Molly

      Apparently I cannot find how to order samples . . or I can’t find their eyeshadow sample page. Everything I found easily :(

      • Phyrra

        They don’t do eye shadow samples.
        But I think they have a good return policy.
        They say
        “Because we like to provide you with reasonable prices, and quick order processing times we do not offer samples of eye shadows and lippies. We used to offer them, and they were so time consuming to produce that we decided to just accept returns on the colors that weren’t working for you, and spend our time processing your orders quickly and taking good care of you.”

    • http://dazzleglam.blogspot.com Molly

      Ah okie dokie. Thanks so much for letting me know. I was looking around wondering where they were.

      • Phyrra

        No problem!

    • http://www.dreamsofneworleans.blogspot.com Casey

      That’s really awesome that they make MAC clones.. I’m gonna have to put them on my future orders list. :D
      thanks Phyrra!

    • http://libbyspinkvanity.blogspot.com Kimberly

      Phyrra, you have to be swatching your entire back to show these! That is a lot of work you have done here. Thanks for sharing it.

      It has been cloudy for an unusual amount of days for FL, hasn’t it?

      I like Pretty (pink!), Verde (great alcoholic drink and you can find it at 7-11….lol), Slick and Bewitched.

      I just put in a huge order for Aromaleigh. Looks like this company will be next.

      • Phyrra

        I swatched this on my thigh – on my good leg – as it’s easier when doing a lot of colors than my arm.

        It’s been constantly raining here, yeah.

        Glad you like SN :)

    • Sheila

      Thanks for the swatches. I really like Silk Naturals, although I haven’t placed an order recently. I think they have some great lippie products.

    • http://slmakeup.blogspot.com Rachel

      I’m loving their skin care products.

      • Phyrra

        Which are your favorites?
        What do you recommend?

        • http://slmakeup.blogspot.com Rachel

          The Apricot Cleansing Oil has my face baby butt soft. The Green Tea & Aloe serum is really nice for the summer heat. Nice and light, good for layering.

          I’ve had both products for a month & have barely put a dent in the bottles. So it’s great for the price.

          I recently started adding the Super serum & it’s been doing amazing things as well. It’s brought under the surface zits to the surface, but treated them in the same breath. I wake up with smooth looking skin.

          The Eye Lash Conditioning gel has been working for me as well. It’s seized dramatic lash loss. I lose some lashes here ‘n there. Length has increased. It’ll probably take a couple more weeks to see volume difference, but I honestly don’t want to be without this.

          I’ll have to do a review on zee blog.

          • Phyrra

            I would love to read your review :)

          • http://www.twitter.com/pretty_serious Lena

            Sorry to butt in here ;) But does their cleanser emulsify well when you pat water onto it? I know most companies with a natural bent, their oil cleansers are really…eh-hem…cruddy in that department. So basically I’m looking for a quality one that turns creamy white and rinses relatively clean? I see they actually have a real, honest to gawd emulsify ingredient listed, so that’s very promising!

            • http://www.twitter.com/pretty_serious Lena

              Ugh… correction: honest to gawd emulsifYING ingredient. *facepalm*

              • kawaiiferreto

                It does have an emulsifying agent and washes off clean. Dries me out like crazy, but I’m used to doing a true, non-emulsifying oil cleanse that I don’t fully steam off. (My skin leans towards dry!)

            • http://slmakeup.blogspot.com Rachel

              It kind of does. It’s hardly noticeable. I don’t use a toner, so I couldn’t firmly tell you whether it rinses clean. I just know my face is ultra soft when I rinse & removes my makeup, even without using a cleansing wipe.

              I’ve heard MAC’s Cleanse Off Oil does turn milky once water is applied.

    • http://www.thedarkbutterfly.com/blog Nini

      Silk Naturals is on my list of companies to try…great swatches, these will be my point of reference :)

      • Phyrra

        Yay glad I can help :)

    • Tasia

      Ohhh, ahhhh. My eyes immediately went to Scandal. I love Planetary,Sizzle, L’chaim, Retro and Pop too. Adding these to my shadow wishlist.

      • Phyrra

        Yay! They’re lovely. I especially love Pop and Scandal.

    • lillypug

      I love all of my SN goodies. That’s pretty amazing because I have a lot of it. LOL I am really impressed with the lash gel and the facelift serum. I think I have mentioned several hundred times Stellar is my favorite blush from SN. I always like to split orders with a friend and we can sample more of the shadows. That would be one thing I would like to see her do is offer samples of shadows. I am not the type of person who likes to return things. You did a great job swatching all of those! :)

      • Phyrra

        I know what you mean about hating to return. And thanks :) I only forgot one shadow, Cougar, which I found AFTER I’d taken all the pix >.<

        • lillypug

          Well, you know what that means. You have to start ALL OVER from scratch just so you can add the one you forgot! hehe

    • Junerose

      This is great. Thanks for the swatches, Phyrra. This will come in handy when I order from SN. I am really liking Papyrus and Cabin Fever. Did you have to use your whole leg for the colors? LOL.

      • Phyrra

        Hehe, nope, there was room to spare!

    • Marion

      I love most SN products I tried. I got all of my SN eye shadows for free (1 with every $30 you spend), love the blushes (especially the cream blushes though they don’t have many shades yet), glows, finishing powders and lippies. The only product I don’t like is foundation.

      It’s a good thing they have free international shipping (orders over $125) as I also love the skincare which makes shipping quite expensive.

      • Phyrra

        Yeah I like the fact that they do freebies like that!

    • kawaiiferreto

      I need to put together another SN package. I have a bunch of their eyeshadows and lippies, and handful of blushes, and a bunch of their skincare stuff (LOVE!) I’m a little hesitant to make an order though, because I’m in the Mystery Adventure Club and already am getting all of the GWPs. I use eye stuff seldom enough that I really don’t need dupes!

      • Phyrra

        Oooh how do you like being in the adventure club?

        • kawaiiferreto

          It’s nice to get to try out all of the GWP eyeshadowss. I’m always curious what they will look like when I see the names up each week, but I doubt I’ll ever get to where I order weekly and get every one. It’s a nice way to actually get to try all the limited fun goodies Karen makes. (This one also included a wild berry lip lube. A prototype maybe? I don’t know. But it was a nice balm, thin, but moisturizing!)

    • http://www.robynsnestblog.blogspot.com Robyn

      Thanks for the swatches. So many pretties in there. Did you have to swatch them on your thigh? I’ve actually done that before.

      • Phyrra

        Yes, I swatched on my thigh :) sometimes it’s easier than the back of my hand or my arm.

    • http://libbyspinkvanity.blogspot.com Kimberly

      Shit, if I swatched shades on my thigh someone would probably want the purple-ish red shade, only to find out it is a patch of spider veins. :p

      • lillypug

        HAHAHA That’s so funny! “Oh look at that pretty shade!”

      • Phyrra

        LOL!

    • http://fashionedinfinland.blogspot.com/ Nea/ Fashioned in Finland

      Nice swatches! I want them ALL :D

      • Phyrra

        Aww, which are your favs?

    • http://www.beautysbadhabitblog.blogspot.com Lily

      Pretty, Swamp, Cabana and Safety all look beautiful. I’ve been on the site but the product pics all look quite muted. Thanks, your swatches are always helpful!

      • Phyrra

        Glad my swatches can help :)
