Makeup Wars Makeup Wars: Favorite Indie Brands

I have three favorites that I am sharing for this makeup wars. You can see more at the links that I give here for them. First is Darling Girl (link is to my previous review). Which is my favorite for indie eye shadow. I have tried a number of indie shadows and I like many of them, but Darling Girl’s shadow formula is my favorite. It applies smoother for me than a lot of other brands and I have a couple of shades that are all time favorites for me.

Next, I really love Fyrinnae (link is to previous review). For bright and interesting loose shadow shades, they can’t be beat. Fyrinnae also makes Pixie Epoxy, which is an awesome shadow primer for glittery shades. Finally, I love their Lip Lustre, which is an incredibly long wearing lip stain. Below I am wearing Fyrinnae eye shadow and lip lustre.

Finally, I recently got a press sample of Darshana Indian Hair Oil and boy do I love it! I haven’t written my full review yet, so watch for that coming soon. The short version is that this mix of a number of oils is perfect as a deep treatment. It killed my frizz, left my hair incredibly soft for days, and it smells amazing as well. It is the easily best hair oil I have ever used. I’m already planning to buy more and it will almost assuredly be on my best of 2013 list as well.
