Beauty Blog Advent Calendar – Femme Fatale Cosmetics

Today’s advent is of Femme Fatale Cosmetics. These swatches are late in coming but you won’t be disappointed. The colors are gorgeous. Many are duochromes. I love the colors that I’ve tried.



The Website Claims:
Femme Fatale Cosmetics is a mineral makeup company handblended in Australia! They’re the very first Australian company that I’ve been able to try.

Ingredients:
The ingredients are clearly listed on each individual color page. The colors also state if the product is eye safe or lip safe, as well as if it is vegan or not.

Example of one of the eye shadow’s list of ingredients:
INGREDIENTS: Iron Oxide (77499), Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Tin Oxide (778161), Silica, Magnesium Stearate, Carnauba Wax.

Price:
$5 full size 5 gram jar (eye shadow)
$8 full size 10 gram jar (blush)
$1 sample
$10.50 – shipping to the USA.

Website Layout
The site is super easy to navigate and purchasing is easy since you checkout with PayPal. The Turn Around Time is clearly noted on the site. It’s easy to find the company’s blog, facebook and twitter. I really adore the header art. Cute girl with purple hair? Yes, I’m a fan.

The samples come in sample baggies which are clearly labeled and easy to open. The full sizes come in nice jars with branded tops that have the FFC initials and a little skull design.

Femme Fatale Shooting Stars on middle of lid and crease, Haunt on outer lid, MAC Hoppin’ to blend out edge of upper crease, MAC Cloudburst to deepen outer crease and MAC Fairylite at inner lid and to highlight. This picture does NOT do Shooting Stars justice, as I don’t think it worked well on the Nyx HD base. It was fine with TFSI.

My favorite shades, hands down, are Shooting Stars and Haunt. They’re just amazing. Heroic and Flare and Poison are gorgeous as well. I need to try Smokebomb and Unholy with Pixie Epoxy or something to see if I can make their color changing nature come out and play. The blushes are nice.

I’m also interested in trying Polymorph, Riptide, Moonglow, Levitate, and of course Elitist.

Would I purchase?
Yes! I already have! I’ve got a few of the winter collection coming to me and I’m really looking forward to playing with them. I ordered Stolen Treats (a gorgeous looking deep midnight purple with golden glitter) and Reindeer Dust (a soft blend of coral and gold highlighted by a subtle gold/green color shift and blue sparkles) to try.

I’ve been pleased with the colors that I’ve tried so far, as the pigmentation and formula has been good, as has the wear.
