Femme Fatale Cosmetics mini haul - Glitter nail polishes in Eternium Dreams, A Tisket, A Tasket, and Tricky Treats, and blush in Velvet Cupcake

October 30, 2012


There was a happy monday discount advertised on the Femme Fatale Cosmetics facebook page last week, so I decided to place an order. I ordered a three pack of nail polishes and I chose the shades A Tisket, A Tasket, Eternium Dreams, and Tricky Treats. I also bought a full sized blush in the shade Velvet Cupcake. Femme Fatale were kind enough to also include three eyeshadow samples in Spearmint Candy, Archangel, and Ancient Traitor

The three pack of nail polishes costs $31.50, you can pick which three nail polishes you want in the pack, there are 10 glitter shades to choose from, and a couple of new ones that are coming out soon... I want them all! The discount code GLITTERSAVER gives you a 10% discount on the Femme Fatale website for the nail polish packs. The blush costs $8 for the full size or $1.10 for a sample.

One great thing about this brand is that they are Australian, and a lot of their products are vegan. I also had to take a photo of how cute the packaging is!


These are the three nail polishes I chose. This is how the website describes these shades:

A Tisket, A Tasket, a semi-opaque white polish with green shimmers and various glitter in pink, teal and green.

Eternium Dreams, a glitter polish the is full of black glitter in various shapes/sizes/finishes, green flakes, tiny aqua green glitter and iridescent squares which shift from green/blue/purple. The base is slightly tinted black.

Tricky Treats, a glitter polish made with predominantly orange glitter bars and hexes, in a lightly tinted orange jelly base. Also has a scattering of pink hexes, holo pink hexes, holo gold bars, red and purple squares, tangerine hearts, and subtle amount of fine copper shimmer.

I am in love with these shades. I am currently wearing A Tisket, A Tasket and I will do swatches of the other shades over the next week or two.

I am addicted to blushes, so I couldn't place an order without ordering one. I ordered a very light candy pink matte blush, aptly names Velvet Cupcake. It is a loose pigment, and it is gorgeous! This is a really bizarre blush and I have never come across anything like it. As you can see from the swatch above, it does appear on the skin as a true baby candy pink, but you will notice from the photo below, that the powder is almost white, but when you blend it in, it develops into a vibrant pink. What I like about this is that it acts almost like a stain, so it stays on your cheeks really well, it also means you only need the slighted amount to get a nice colour. If you aren't aware of how this blush develops, you could very easily apply too much. I am curious what their other blushes are like!

The lovely people at Femme Fatale also included a few eyeshadow samples. These are beautiful colours, and I can't wait to start experimenting with them. Sorry that they are bit messy in the photo below, I stupidly enough took photos after I was playing with them.

The swatches don't do these justice! They are stunning! I will have to order a few more and do a whole post with dry swatches vs wet swatches. The photo above is of the pigment on bare skin, which shows that they can be quite vibrant even without a primer.

This is my first taste of Femme Fatale Cosmetics, and I am very happy so far. If you want to check them out then visit http://femmefatalecosmetics.com.au/
