Haul with swatches: BFTE Cyber Monday sale!

 Today I got my Cyber Monday order from BFTE! I got a ton of stuff but I chose to swatch the 16 color sample kit first since they were all new colors among my collection. Keep scrolling for a TON of pics! Products swatched with a dry brush on bare lotioned skin:
Spruce, Mint, Treason, Atomic Teal.

Spruce, Mint, Treason, Atomic Teal.

Spruce: Kind of a sagey greyish-green with bright green iridescent shimmer. Think of the green sheen in Riddle and Mermaid, but with a less visible base. Pretty!

Mint: Low-shimmer bright mint green.

Treason: Blackened antique gold-green with gold sparkle, gorgeous!

Atomic Teal: Deep blackened green-teal, smooth and shimmery, loooove this one!

Brimstone, Heat, Hitchcock, Bondage.

Brimstone: My new favorite neutral! I say that every time lol.. it's light, taupey, pearly, and perfect.

Heat: Smooth golden tan, think Autumn and Dragon Slayer consistency. Love love love it.

Hitchcock: Reddish-brownish-purplish with shimmer and sparkle.. used with a base is best to catch the sparkle :)

Bondage: Dark grey with smooth shimmer and slight blueish micro-sparkliness? I wish I'd gotten this color sooner, it's awesome. If you're looking for a dark shimmery grey, look no further! In the past I've been unable to tell from swatches whether this color was grey or brown or what; I think the base is deep deep brown rather than black, which may be why it can appear kind of brownish in photos. In person it just looks grey and gorgeous.

Electric, Playful, Clear Skies, Shopaholic.

Electric: Bold bright semi-pearly blue. I haven't had a chance yet to compare it to Blue Bird, but I think it's a bit brighter with a little more shimmer.

Playful: Matte medium periwinkle blue.

Clear Skies: Bright sky blue with silver and (I think) blue micro-shimmer. Very pearly color, it can appear lighter/more silvery in pictures.

Shopaholic: Bright shimmery sun yellow! Very much like Sweet Nibblets with shimmer.

Cheeky, Aphrodite, Rock You, Wasted Time.

Cheeky: Gorgeous bright matte pinky-purple! Reminds me of a Crayola crayon, can't remember which one.. Orchid maybe? So smooth and pigmented, I think this is my new favorite matte.<3

Aphrodite: Light periwinkle leaning lavender with lots of tiny light pink sparkles. This color took my breath away when I swatched it! Pictures cannot capture it's beauty, and it would be even better with a sticky base.

Aphrodite sparkles!!

Rock You: Medium matte blurple with bright pink sparkles. Not as much sparkle as Aphrodite, but they are there; I had difficulty getting them to show up on camera in the swatches. :(

Rock You sparkles!!

Wasted Time: Deep navy blue with some shimmer and maybe a tinge of purple. This color was a bit sheer but I think would work great on a sticky base.

Tin that comes with the sample set :D
More pics coming soon after I swatch the rest of my order! Thanks for reading!<3

  3. @DanielleBlogs Thank you! For swatches I usually use a Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS. That's what it says, lol. It's just a little handheld point-and-shoot type deal :)
