I am on a bit of an indie makeup kit and as part of my shopping, I decided to give Darling Girl a try. I picked up some ultra affordable samples and found some new favorites among them.
Darling Girl does fun packaging, and anytime I see Hello Kitty I am happy! So things were off on the right foot with this Hello Kitty tape!
My samples were all also wrapped in fun tissue paper. Little touches like this are things make me love the small indie brands all the more.
Here are the products unpackaged.
Below are outdoor swatches of the Darling Girl eye shadows that I received in the following shades: Sue Bell, Papercut, Jacks Lantern, Badtz Maru, Sultry Siren, No Sign of Life, Obviously a Wig, Deery Lou, Seawitch, Superstition, and Rose de Oro
These are the same shades inside.
The shadows applied very well both wet and dry. The swatches are done wet, but I used a few shades dry over Urban Decay primer potion just fine. The taupe Badtz Maru is a huge favorite of mine.
I also got a a couple of blush shades that are in the video, a gloss, and a tinted lip balm. The balm was the only disappointment for me. It was on the hard and dry side. Otherwise I was very happy with all the products.
Below, I am wearing Papercut, which is a green/purple duochrome, and a bit of Jack’s lantern . I blended it with a gold Fyrinnae shade (I think book of the dead). I’m wearing DaraZ lipgloss/stain in the shade Garnet with a matching DaraZ pencil on my lips. The shadow looked brighter than shows here. I can’t seem to get my camera to capture bright shadow shades as well as I would like.
Hers is a different view.
