Heyhey! It's that time again, my turn for the Darling Girl Cosmetics POTW, or Pick of the Week! I pick a product and Susan offers it 20% off for a whole week! Lucky you ;)

This week I chose the eyeshadow called Swag. Why? Well, just look at it...
This was swatched over DG's Primped and Primed primer which really makes the shift stand out!
It's sexy and it knows it...
Yeah, enough said.
Now, I will admit that the initial lightbulb to choose Swag as my POTW wasn't mine; the credit goes to my fellow Darling Girl Jeni. She asked me to do a look with Swag and Bubbles, two colors on her current DG wishlist. Your wish is my command Jeni! Hope you like it :)

For this look I decided to use Swag over my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Waves of White which I got recently. I'm not sure how it may have affected the color shiftiness of this eyeshadow but I know two things for sure: #1. This eyeshadow is extremely shifty! #2. My camera fails to fully capture the shiftiness, boooo. The swatches I took are really accurate but the pictures of my eye are a bit different from how it looked in person. (I just realized that my pictures look off partly because apparently I was shooting in 1600 ISO.... my camera resets every so often and I forgot to check the setting this time. I was wondering why they looked so grainy! v_v)

I think the moral of this story, (besides remembering to check your camera settings often), is that this eyeshadow is a chameleon that can change appearance depending on the person, lighting situations (it looked different in every room in my house!) and various bases used, etc. The mini-moral (if there is such a thing): you need this color.
This POTW should become available tomorrow. If you don't own Swag, at least get a sample of it because it's awesome, I promise you'll love it! As for me, I think I'll be getting a jar of this and passing my baggie sample on to another unsuspecting victim future DG customer makeup-lover. >;)
