Innocent+Twisted Alchemy March 2015 Subscription

My first subscription to land this month is a new one for me from Innocent+Twisted Alchemy. I’m really liking indie makeup and had heard great things about I+TA so I was thrilled when I was able to snag a spot on their subscription list! This subscription contains 3 full sized samples that are exclusive to the subscription, surprise samples from other indie cosmetic companies, and a discount code good for the month on I+TA’s website.

Innocent+Twisted Alchemy Swatch - Leap of Faith

Innocent+Twisted Alchemy Swatch – Leap of Faith

Leap of Faith – Metallic silver that leans a little teal in the shimmer. This is maybe a hint on the gunmetal side of silver. It’s highly pigmented and gorgeous.

Innocent+Twisted Alchemy Swatch - Critical Objective!

Innocent+Twisted Alchemy Swatch – Critical Objective!

Critical Objective! – Golden yellow with copper sheen, almost a marigold color. This shade is nicely pigmented and smooth. I can’t wait to use this shade!

Innocent+Twisted Alchemy Swatch - Runner Vision

Innocent+Twisted Alchemy Swatch – Runner Vision

Runner Vision – Bright blue with a touch of violet and gold sparkles. The blue base is a little powdery and thin but it can be built up nicely. This shade definitely benefits from a primer or sticky base.

Darling Girl Swatch - Adorned

Darling Girl Swatch – Adorned

Adorned – A pearly maple with silvery undertones and filled with golden sparkle. This is my favorite shade of life! It was just listed up at Darling Girl’s site and I’ll be buying at least 2. I’m in love with this shade!

Brija Cosmetics Swatch - The Boy Who Lived

Brija Cosmetics Swatch – The Boy Who Lived

The Boy Who Lived – Sparkly golden green. This is a beautiful shade but definitely benefits from a primer underneath.

My Pretty Zombie Swatch - Fresh Scab

My Pretty Zombie Swatch – Fresh Scab

Fresh Scab – This is a beautiful burgundy red, dried blood color. It’s a bit powdery and needs a primer but it clings to moisture so make sure your primer’s dried down completely or it’ll look a little patchy. Shade wise I love it but I need to play with it more to get it down performance wise.

Detrivoire Cosmetics Swatch - Hermaeus Mora

Detrivoire Cosmetics Swatch – Hermaeus Mora

Hermaeus Mora – This is a taupe with a greenish shimmer. It’s smooth and nicely pigmented.

Corvus Cosmetics Swatch - The Shard

Corvus Cosmetics Swatch – The Shard

The Shard – Metallic sapphire blue with silver sparkles and a slightly teal sheen in some light. Most metallic blue’s I’ve used get muddy as they blend out but this one doesn’t. I love it!
