|from left: Cinnamon Dust, Black Scandal, Arabian Night, Golden Olive|
Cinnamon Dust: A matte warm grey with subtle green undertones. It does have some shimmer particles, which I find doesn’t really show up on my eyes (ie ends up looking totally matte). Smooth texture, medium pigmentation.
Black Scandal: Shimmery midnight blue, incredibly pigmented and smooth. Words cannot express how beautiful this colour is. Just a note of warning though- the shadow is fairly soft so apply with a light hand otherwise you will look like a (stylish) raccoon.
Arabian Night: Sparkly cool-toned purple. fairly pigmented, and reasonably smooth.
Golden Olive: metallic duochrome khaki base infused with orange-gold shimmer. Smooth texture, medium pigmentation.
|from left: French Chic, Luxury Brown, Orange Glow|
French Chic: shimmery light silvery sea-green colour. Very smooth texture and good pigmentation.
Luxury Brown: metallic medium-dark rust brown colour. Highly pigmented and very smooth.
Orange Glow: orange gold (similar to MAC melon pigment colour-wise). Not as pigmented as the others, and a little bit chalky.
…and here are some swatches. Some of the colours are a little washed out (sorry!)

Since the ultra dark lip started appearing on the runways (Rachel Roy Fall 2009, Proenza Schouler Fall 2010 etc) I’ve been secretly wanting to let my inner goth out and wear dark burgundy/black lipstick every day.
