BFTE for V-Day? Yes please!

 I received this BFTE order on Valentine's Day but I'm just getting around to posting because I've been having annoying issues with my internet/network. :( It seems to be behaving better than usual now so fingers crossed I can get these posts done quick! ;D
I got 2 full-size jars: Stunning and Belle of the Ball. I chose BotB for my free jar from the BFTE 365 contest, and Stunning was the COTW. We voted for a "Mystery Color", not knowing what it was, and it turned out to be this brand new hot pink/fuchsia which is absolutely gorgeous! I also got some samples, including shades from the Wizard of Oz-some collection.





My thoughts:

-Stunning is a gorgeous hot pink/fuchsia shade. It has low shimmer, but it also looks like it has some very tiny gold shimmer/sparkles. It has a little depth, but not much; it's just a straight bright beautiful color that really is stunning!

-If I Only Had a Brain is like a tan-gold, quite shimmery and a bit metallic. As with the other shimmery colors here, flash brings out multicolored sparkles which aren't really visible to the naked eye. It's from the Wizard of Oz-some collection, all of which are now available individually on BFTE's site.
This is a nice color which I'll probably use for a look soon, maybe with other neutrals. I also think it looks nice next to Stunning. <3

-Courage is a burnt coppery-orange, very shimmery and also a bit metallic. Also from the Wizard of Oz-some collection.

-Yellow Brick Road is a bright yet pale, mostly matte yellow. It has a pearly finish and is highly pigmented. I really like it! Also from the Wizard of Oz-some collection.

-Tropical is an interesting color; it seems like it can't make up it's mind between a shimmery blue-teal, and a matte medium yellow-green. In my pics it looks a little patchy because of the way I swatched it, but it's a very nice low-shimmer color. I used it in a recent eye look, which you can see here.

-Have a Heart is a very shimmery metallic silver. When photographed with flash there appear to be multicolored sparkles in it, but they're not really visible in real life.

-Harmony was my free sample baggie this time and I love it! It's one of those colors I almost bought, but changed my mind in favor of something else. I'm so glad I got to try it!
In person it looks like an almost-matte blue-grey; when swatched and blended out, you can see tiny tiny blue sparkles. This color is very sheer and seems like it might be a little tricky to apply and get it to look just right, but it's so pretty I'm definitely going to try. ;)

-Belle of the Ball is a simple, muted matte purple. It's COMPLETELY matte, but very finely milled so it's totally smooth and silky in texture. I thought this would be nice for a purple smokey eye, or a crease color for a purple look. You could also probably use it over eyeliner.

That's it for this order, enjoy the pics! (Don't forget to click each one for more detailed view!)
