Since I’m still backlogged on collections, I did a swatchfest of my Darling Girl Cosmetics products that I hadn’t had a chance to share with you. I’ve got some Darling Deer Christmas, Only One Can Win (Hunger Games), Rainbow Brite, Darling Grrl! and a few others.
These are three of the watercolor paint pots: Mermaid Tales, Sunrise and Pyramid Skulls.
All products were swatched on my bare skin. No primer was used.
Row 1 = Mermaid Tales – Sunrise – Pyramid Skulls – obviously a wig – stargazer – Mochi – Bonne Nuit – Willow – Cupid
Row 2 = Mommy’s Little Monster – Roots Radical – Scarab – Emerald City – Rainbow Brite – Lemon Meringue – Blitzen – Prancer – How Soon is Now – Persuasion
Row 3 = Uprising – Boy with the Bread – Witch & Famous – Ramblin’ rose – Snow Angel – Still Your Sunshine – Kisseltoe
Obviously A Wig is a shifting magenta that reflects sugary blue in some lights.
My take: Yes! This is perfect! It matches the description perfectly. It’s my favorite pink that Darling Girl has released. It’s a perfect magenta pink. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Mermaid Tails (WPP) is a metallic, deep, sea green with a touch of black holographic glitter.
My Take: this is a gorgeous metallic teal. I don’t see any black holographic glitter.
Sunrise (WPP) is a peachy pink with violet shift. This shade is awesome for brightening up pink and purple shadows.
My Take: it’s a gorgoeus peahy pink with a strong blue-violet shift. It’s a duochrome when applied on me.
Pyramid of Skulls (WPP) is a deep, shimmering burgundy.
My Take: a deep metallic burgundy with brown undertones.
Stargazer is a gorgeous red pink with soft blue duochrome.
My Take: It’s a coral-red with blue sheen.
Mochi is a a coral/pink with violet shift, blue “diamond dust” and a sprinkling of aqua sparks.
My Take: coral-pink with violet sheen and aqua & blue sparks.
Bonne Nuit is a gorgeous, matte base with a touch of soft violet sheen.
My Take: matte nude pink with a hint of a violet sheen.
Willow is a cheerful, cotton candy pink with turquoise interference.
My Take: It’s a light cotton candy pink with strong turquoise sheen and shimmer.
Cupid is a flirty lilac pink with monochromatic pink “diamond dust” glitter.
My Take: lilac pink matte base with gorgeous pink diamond dust shimmer.
Mommy’s Little Monster -my take – deep blue-teal with navy undertones and aqua sparkle
Roots Radical a light, mint green with gold and pink sparkles.
My Take: pretty mint green with gold and pink sparkles.
Scarab – my take – deep murky brown base with pine green overtones and green shimmer
Emerald City – my take – gorgeous emerald green with shimmer
Rainbow Brite is a pale, baby pink with red shift and a rainbow of star sprinkles.
My Take: a pale pink with pink sheen and silver and aqua sparks
Lemon Meringue a bright yellow with a little red afterglow and contrasting purple shimmers.
My Take: sunny yellow with a slight red shift. I don’t see purple shimmers.
Blitzen – my take – pale beige with a hint of peach and strong blue shift and sparkles
Prancer is a precocious olive-green with a hint of violet shift and gorgeous contrasting blue shimmer.
My Take: This shade is awesome. It’s a velvety olive-green with blue-violet shimmer.
How Soon is Now is a medium gray with pink and aqua sparkles.
My Take: a matte grey base with pink and aqua sparkles.
Persuasion is a gorgeous, medium lavender base with gold shift and turquoise sparkles.
My Take: It’s no wonder this is a best selling shade! It’s nearly matte lavender base with gold sparkles on top. I sometimes see a bit of blue, but not much.
Uprising is a gorgeous color-shifting copper laid over a black base. It some lights it looks purple and, in other lighting, you can really see the copper. It is gorgeous!
My Take: a charcoal brown base with copper on top and visible blue sparks.
Boy with the Bread is a warm, brown taupe like his bread, with a blue sheen like his eyes.
My Take: a pretty warm brown taupe with a yellow undertone and blue sheen
Witch & Famous is a gorgeous plummy taupe with gold reflect.
My Take: Awesome plummy taupe with gold reflects that goes with just about everything.
Ramblin’ Rose is a gorgeous ecru with a delicate red shift.
My Take: This is spot on. It’s lovely.
Snow Angel is an awesome layering gloss! Loaded with pink, holographic and color shifting natural glitters.
My Take: It’s gorgeous and perfect for layering or just putting on the center of your pout to make your lips look larger
Still Your Sunshine is a sheer happy orange with blue/violet duochrome.
My Take: It’s a sheer orange. It’s pretty. I don’t see the blue-violet. If you’re afraid of orange but want to try the Tangerine for Spring, give this a whirl!
Kisseltoe -my take – a metallic pink with blue sparkles

thanks for sharing …
You’re welcome Emma!
Thanks for the swatches! How is the staying power of the watercolor pots?
I’ve got to test them for wear. I still haven’t had time to do that.
Woah! The watercolor paint pots O_O ::drool::. I really want to check out the shades that have a matte base with sheen, like Bonne Nuit. That type of finish is so magical to me.
Yeah they are so lovely!
I want the watercolor paint pots!! They are soo gorgeous!
I think they are, too
I love the Darling Girl eyeshadows!! Do you find that the DG Watercolors need a primer or do they prevent creasing on their own?
I haven’t had a chance to test them for wear. Once I do, I’ll do a proper review
OMG. Thanks so much for swatching all these cool dimensional colors. Just went to the Darling Girl site and it’s a Wonderland!
Absolutely beautiful colours! I’ve never tried Darling Girl but these look lovely. Can’t wait to hear an update on the formulas once you have a chance to wear them.
I reallly like Pyramid Skulls!
