Femme Fatale Swatches

 I ordered 8 samples from Femme Fatale cosmetics, an Australian indie makeup company. They have some stunning duochrome and colour shifting shades. TAT 7 days, order placed 29/03, store shut until 02/04, shipped on 06/04 which is super fast, I'm very impressed.
All swatches are patted over MUA primer and taken in natural light, no flash. Descriptions in italics come from the Femme Fatale site
Candied Apple a pale redwood pink with a green duochrome, and blends out to have an almost brown undertone to it.

 Biggest pain in the ass ever to capture the pink shift on camera, I could see it with my eyes but it only wanted to come out as sparkles. Believe me the pink shift is way more obvious in real life.The website pictures beat mine by miles.

I'll be posting a few looks using these shadows some time this week, once I've edited the pictures.
