What: The Labyrinth Collection
Who: Hi-Fi Cosmetics (Etsy shop)
10 eyeshadow colours based on the Jim Henson and David Bowie dreamboat extravaganza, "The Labyrinth" (13 year old sigh entre here)
Retail: $4.99 for 5g jar, sample (only sold in set of 10 for $8.99 as far as I could tell)
Not since Aromaleigh have I seen such beautiful eyeshadows. These I am going to get all in full-size. Somehow. Someway. Oh yes, the Labyrinth Collection is HEAVEN!
This is my first experience with Hi-Fi Cosmetics. You can shop their swag HERE.
I have to admit, since I knew Aromaleigh was going out of business I really did think, "Well, there's the end of great eyeshadow. The rest are all kinda blah in comparison." I'm grateful to say that Hi-Fi is exactly what I was hoping to find! The glimmer is unreal- the multi dimensional effect is to die for.
Here are some swatches:
My favorite was Slime and Snails- a lovely pale sea green with flecks of lavender and pink. It's what you wished your prom dress could look like. It's my favorite eyeshadow of all time. I own hundreds, so this is a steep achievement. I love this.
The rest are pretty incredible. Lost and Lonely, Down In The Underground...they have a real luminous beauty that is hard to put into words. Seriously, just order them and email me what you think. I know you will love them.
Wow. That's all I have to say. Wow.
If you don't order these samples ($8.99 for the collection) you are missing out on really, the best collection I've seen in a long, long time. None of them are bombs. There are a few brownish shades, but they each have a unique appeal. Hooray!
And just in case you were born after 1986 or have lived under a rock- here's a clip from the film. It's what every girl wishes she could be at 16. Plus, David Bowie is well....let's just say no one does wigs and stretch pants like David Bowie.
