More Black Rose Minerals Swatches

The second part of my Black Rose Minerals haul swatchpost.
All swatches were taken in natural light over Pixie Epoxy. Shade descriptions in italics are taken from the Black Rose Minerals website.  

Scruffy - Scruffy’s gonna die how Scruffy lived… This sparkly dark gray is a jazzy compliment to any janitor suit. We recommend a sticky base to capture all the shimmer and glitter in this one. Why is Scruffy sparkly? Well…. We don’t really know, but it worked. Mmmm-hmmm.From the Futurama inspired New New York collection.

Thirteen - Considered by most an unlucky number, and yes thirteen is usually an awkward age, but lets just say its a prime number. Don't let superstition deter you from this super awesome shade. Wear it dry for a mid-tone shimmery violet with slight blue highlights. Wear it wet for a deep violet hue with a metallic blue sheen. from the One Year Anniversary collection

Unicorn - Shunnnnnnnnnnn-nuh-nuh-nuh the non-believer! It’s ok, we’ll still be your friend. Especially if you’re wearing this lovely lavender sheen that glistens with many multicolored highlights. Sheer when dry, wearing it wet deepens the hue slightly and still shows off it’s glistening pop. from the One Year Anniversary collection

Pacific Oil Slick - There's something fishy about this one. A black base with a blue green shimmer. Just like that tar ball that washed up on the beach! Worn wet, it has an iridescent green sheen and dry for a smoky eye with a touch of shine and shimmer.

Scarab -This deep chocolaty brown shimmers with green-gold sparkles. And a splash of purple glitter that glistens in certain angles. from the One Year Anniversary collection

Skink - Slip into something slippery with this barely there neutral. Dry shows off a very subtle pinky-beige that shimmers beautifully. Worn wet it becomes a champagne metallic finish with shimmer blending out on the edges. Recommended as a perfect highlight, wear it paired with a dark matte for a dramatic look or alone for a natural neutral!

Scabbed Wings - Angels aren’t the only things that fly. This devilish little number starts with a black base, orange undertones show off a bronzy duotone. Finish that off with violet sparks for quite a shocking twist. We recommend a wet or sticky base for application. From the Luciferi collection
