|My two shadows I ordered, plus samples!!|
The shadows I ordered were the current Color of the Month for February, I Tried, and Moon Prism Power, a previous CotM that's now permanent for a year due to its popularity. Being a Sailor Moon fan I really couldn't resist.
|The lid stickers are so cute. I'm in love.|
Both of these shadows are quite glittery, I Tried being a bit more glittery than I expected, which gives me a slight challenge, due to my novice when it comes to both glittery and loose shadows. However they are both easily workable and adhere nicely to your primer of choice. Due to no talc (yay!) they also are both able to be used wet for more intensity and control.

|First swatch is Little Bird, done dry, top without primer and bottom is with Urban Decay primer. No wet swatch since I generally don't like applying mattes wet.|
I'd been eyeing up Little Bird and thinking of buying a pot of it anyways, and getting this sample just sealed that deal 100% lock and key. It's a near-matte deep pinky mauve with a slight sheen, and insanely easy to apply. Smooth, not patchy, no chalkiness, easy to blend, buttery, and just damn good-looking. It's the perfect all-over lid shade for me. I've already put in my order for a full-size, since I love the color AND Sansa Stark, who this color is inspired by. A double win for me! Lip-safe per Shiro.

Here is a bonus selfie of my first-ever indie eye look. Little Bird on lid, I Tried on lower lashline and center of top lid, and Darling Girl Cosmetics Sovereign on outer corner & in crease (review coming in a bit, but spoiler alert, it's also hella amazing). Face is free sample of Buxom Show Some Skin & Benefit Dandelion, mascara is free sample of Dolce & Gabana Passion Eyes mascara, lipstick is MAC Creme in Your Coffee.
|Y'all know how much I love my car for selfies ok.|
