Antoinette's Revolution cosmetics

So while reading the blog of the wonderful Makeup Zombie
I stumbled upon a review she did for Antoinette's Revolution Cosmetics. Their ArtFire can be found HERE:
I strongly recommend checking them out.
Makeup Zombie's review made ARC seem like something I couldn't miss, so I decided to check it out for myself. They were running a great grand opening special, with all samples going for only .64 cents a piece. They also threw in a bonus sample, which is great, as I love surprises. And it wasn't just a random sample; the freebie was the same color family as my samples. I love that they pay attention to the small details like that, instead of sending me a brown when my order was comprised of blues, purples, and greens!

Colors from left to right: Marie, Icing Collection Purple, Gangrene, Louis, Duponi, Damask, Von Fersen.

Von Fersen was the freebie they sent, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by it. It's a deep blue with a bit of shimmer. What's a bit strange about this one, though, is after I washed the swatches off my hand, Von Fersen left a black stain. Interesting.
 Close up of my eye with Louis on top and Marie underneath. I LOVE Marie. It's stunning, truly a gorgeous,gorgeous baby blue with a touch of shimmer.
 Don't I look thrilled? I don't photograph well, even by my own hand =/

Pretty eyeshadows! Louis and Marie again. This is Louis applied wet, and Marie dry. However, this picture doesn't do Marie justice. See above.

Chances are good I'll be purchasing From ARC again in the future. In addition to the free shadow, she also sent this little goodie, a Victorian inspired pin. Plus, her business cards are adorable.
