Darling Girls: Spring Fling Collection

Alright, I have been a swatching fiend these last few days because I finally have some time to sit down and play with my Darling Girl haul and I already have a list of full-sizes MUST haves written down. I also just found out through her blog that another new collection will be debuting soon. Whaaaat? I can't wait! I can purchase my full-sizes then also. :D

The next few posts will be all about Darling Girl Cosmetics. I am loving this brand. Before I start raving, let me post the colors so you can see for yourself:

Quick run-down:

1. Shipping is quick as always. It was ridiculous how fast I got these considering Susan had just re-opened the store when I purchased and 4 new collections had debuted.

2. The girl has her formulations down pat. I love how smooth and buttery these shadows swipe on. There is no patching and even the ones with a lot of glitter go on smooth. Hello thur. I <3 you. (Patchy eye shadow is a big irk of mine.)

3. I love how soft the colors are. I can wear these for a night out and just as easily wear them into a conservative work environment.

I wish there were more collections! I want them ALL. Lol. Serious though, no joke, the formulations of the colors I have tried are amazing. With Meow, I love the variety but I always find some colors to be a bit patchy upon application. With DG, I have not had that issue.

From this collection, I have so many favorites! Plum Blossoms, Garden of Weedin', Butterfly Flutterby, Mango Tango...gosh, they're all so pretty!

Have you tried DG Cosmetics yet? If so, what are your favorites?

You always have such good close up swatches- thank you! I've not tried Darling Girl cosmetics but seeing a lot of positive reviews. I've been avoiding samples as I have hundreds and telling myself, 'Full-sizes-only!' But I may check this co. out. Thank you!

I;ve never tried them but they look AMAZING! I love mineral shadows for foiling, they turn out so good!

I've actually stopped using pressed shadows ever since I discovered mineral makeup. Haha, I think I like staring at their pigmented-ness in the jar. If that made any sense...=X
