A place where I swatch, talk about makeup news, and give insight.
Impulse Cosmetics Loose Eyeshadow and Glitter Swatches!
Hi friends! Today I’m checking out a quick purchase I made from Impulse Cosmetics! I purchased their eye primer for glitter, two glitter pots and two loose eyeshadow pots. The nicest thing about this company is that everything is handmade and cruelty-free. They do offer some vegan options and they always say if a product is vegan friendly or not. A lot of the pigments are fun duochromes that have a really bold shift to them.
They were involved in some makeup drama a couple of years back from stealing images from Fyrinnae eyeshadow and using it as their own. I’ve been doing some searching around the internet and reading that some of the shadows do not match the pictures on their site. Unfortunately, I can see where this makes sense. They had quite some trouble making decent swatches on both that actually matched. I’ll show you all what I mean later in the post. I’m also going to show the pictures off the site for comparison too.
Before we get on my arm and brush swatches, I wanted to show you in a collage of how the four shades looked on the website.
Okay so here come the swatches. I did the eyeshadows first, following is the glitter with the Glam Glue.
All I can say is that these are my personal experience and I wish it was better. I love indie brands however, it can be quite scary if you don’t know what you’re going to get or expect.
