My 1st Femme Fatale order + Swatches

Today i show you swatches of my 1st order from Femme Fatale Cosmetics.
It's an Australian company and they sell mineral based cosmetics , they are also cruelty-free.

They are celebrating their first anniversary and they having a massive giveaway

I see a very good future for this company :D 
The colors are so gorgeous ! They are unique in every way you can imagine !
They not only have shadows , also faceproducts , lipproducts , empty jars and nail polishes , but the polishes are Australians only . 

I placed my order on 9/11 and got a shipping notification on 9/12 and it arrived here in Belgium on 9/19 . 
This is very fast ! I got 3 free samples in my order , it was nicely packed in a zipbag and than in a nice black organza bag . 
If you haven't checked this company ... go and do so ! They are worth trying !

You have a wide choice : samples , mini jars with sifter or without and full sizes . 
Prices : $AUS 1.10 for samples in a zipbaggie , Mini jar with sifter : $AUS 3.10 , without : $AUS 3 and full sizes are $AUS 5.75 . 
You get a large amount of product . I couldn't find an exact amount of what you get , but believe me : they are generous !
I've chosen the mini jars without sifters . 
I paid $AUS 7 for the shipping to Belgium, which is inexpensive in my opinion. 
Anyway , my next order will follow soon :D

Now on to the swatches . It was very very hard to capture the colors on camera , especially "Unholy" was a pain in the ** :D 

The colors are very pigmented and as all loose shadows you need a sticky base for the most intensity . You can use them with only a primer , but i prefer to use a base with all my eyeshadows . So it's up to you how you will use them .

Color descriptions are from Femme Fatale's website
