      I need to get a full-size of Napalm and Detox, I’ve had samples of them for ages and love them.

        Yeah they’re great colors. Plus you get the 10g jar size :)

      What primer do you swatch over? The colors are so vibrant and multi-dimensional. I want that on my lids!

        I swatch over Meow Light Primer. However, Too Faced Shadow Insurance or Concrete Minerals Primer will give you good vibrancy.

      Napalm, Living Dead, Detox, Jezebel, Wicked, Kinky and Temptress all look amazing! But do the shadows blend well?:)

      Wicked looks pretty awesome!!!! Jezebel, Temptress & Napalm seems nice too :o)

      I ordered some lipstick from them (still in waiting for the package arghh) but didn’t think about the eyeshadows!!

        Definitely try the eye shadows! They’re nice :)

      I actually just recently used Bang-up Jezebel and Blitzkrieg together and it came out so awesome!! I put Bang-up in the lid crease, covered with the Jezebel, blended together a bit then added Blitzkrieg to the lower AND upper portion of the lid, it came out so sexy!
