Today, I received 8 full size eyeshadows (3 gram jars, no sifters) and 13 eyeshadow samples from The She Space (aka About Face Cosmetics). They have quite a nice selection of colors as well as a variety of textures to their eyeshadows. And of the ones I've tried so far, the color payoff is good.
However, I do have two complaints. [Excuse me while I shout...] WOULD IT KILL THEM TO PUT AN INVOICE OF WHAT I ORDERED IN MY PACKAGE? And... PUT YOUR COMPANY NAME ON YOUR SAMPLES!!!
Oh and a couple more things... (no shouting) It would be helpful if they had a product search engine on their web site. It's very difficult to find a specific color if you don't know which collection it came from. It would also be nice if they posted updates about their limited edition collections (or updates of any kind for that matter) on their blog. This company could take lessons from Aromaleigh.
And a compliment...I do love the idea behind Hope Quest 2009. Read more about it here.
Okay, here are my goodies!
Color descriptions of the full size shadows (I sampled all of these except kiss of reality prior to purchasing full sizes):
- broken rules: Soft twinkling honey with layers of gold and pink
- glossed over: Shimmering plum with layers of baby blue and lavender
- goddess called pam (discont April LE): Warm iridescent cocoa fused w/ rose
- kiss of reality (May LE): soft buttery gold (I'm going to use this as a brow highlight/crease blender)
- lesli in leather (discont April LE): Crystal rose w/ blue & violet glow
- love that lynne (discont April LE): Sheer cocoa taupe w/ halo of pink
- slumber party: Golden cocoa with layers of copper and pink
- stopping traffic: Sheerest butter yellow (another brow highlight/crease blender - similar to kiss of reality but not as shimmery or sparkly)
