My Little Pony & Sugar Minuet

Fantasia  blush.

The current turn around time is 10 to 14 business days, though I think Susan ships faster than that.

I find the site a little weird to navigate, but the search function works perfectly.

Prices:
Eye shadows & Blushes – $4 full, $2 petite, $.60 sample. Full sizes come packaged in 5g jars with approximately 3/4 tsp of products, Petit’s come in 3g jars with approximately 1/4 tsp of products and samples come packaged in 2×2 zip lock baggies with approximately 1/8th of a tsp of product.
Eye Liners – $6 5g eye liner wand with felt applicator.
Tinted Lip balm – $4.50

Ingredients are listed on each individual product listing.

I love the products I purchased. Shy Girl was a freebie and OMG I loved it, too.  Shy Girl is DEFINITELY my sort of color! It’s so pretty and bright. Rawr! I loved the first purchase I made so much, I quickly made a second one, which included a full size of Fantasia, a lippy in the same tinted formula and several of the eye shadows.

Overall, I’m really happy with all the products I’ve tried from Darling Girl. The tinted lip balms that I have are nicely pigmented and moisturizing. The eye shadows are great. The blush is cute. The prices are incredibly reasonable. I’ll definitely purchase from Darling Girl again.

Most products were purchased by me, but I also received some free samples. All opinions are my own.

      Nice! I haven’t tried them. I’ve tried more companies from your swatches-it’s making me broke!
      Still love your hair with the blonde/pink ( I know it’s dark now), and that cut is awesome.

      I like your nose ring in the photo. =D

      I’ve been dancing around hauling from Darling Girl for a LONG time. Thanks for doing such great swatches and such a thorough review!

    • The Peach

      Yay! Glad you revisited Darling Girl! I absolutely love all of Susan’s products! Thanks for the swatches!

      I’m very happy with my DGC products. I love her lippies and some of her shadows are gorgeous. My Little Pony is so awesome. It’s one of my favorites. I want to make an order for some of her cream blushes and her primer and glitter glue. I’ve heard good things. =D Shy girl is awesome. I think I need to try it when I make another order.

      I love love love Darling Girl. Her products are so reasonably priced and the quality is amazing. I have a sample of Shy Girl too, and I really need to go buy a full size. Her lip glosses are amazing also. She may not have the boldest colored eyeshadows, but they are nuanced and really unique. And plus Susan is a extremely nice.

      Sugar Minuet is calling my name!!! Thanks for the review….I’m adding Darling Girl to my list too!

    • UneLuneBleue

      There are some really nice colors here, that lippie looks great on you! Another company to add to my list of ‘to be tried’.

      Man, your haircut is tooo awesome!! And that pink stripe is done so well. Ack, I have urge to cut my hair similarly…I’ve been trying to grow it, but I’m sick of having to put it in a ponytail. If I wear it out, I look like a member of the Ramones (not in a good way). I’ll definitely look into Darling Girl lip products as soon as they reopen. Btw, what is that lip color you are using in that photo where you’re using Fantasia blush? I have a feeling it’s another brand. Thanks.

      I love DGC! Susan is wonderful and very responsive to her customers! I have ordered twice from her and have loved everything! I just made my third order during the sale. I’m definitely a loyal customer!

    • http://inhermakeupbag.blogspot.com Stephanie

      I have an order on its way and I can’t WAIT to get it! The sale she had was a huge incentive for me to make my first purchase, and even though I haven’t received it yet, I’m already guessing I’ll make more orders in the future. :)
