Darling Girl Cosmetics Hello Kitty Collection

Darling Girl Cosmetics (DGC) has been one of my favorite MMUCs almost since the very beginning so this review of them is long overdue. Susan is the owner of DGC and she is an absolute doll! Her customer service is impeccable and she will go above and beyond for you. =)

What I really love about DGC is that they offer eye shadows in 3 sizes Full, Petit and Sample which is awesome when you're trying to save money (like me!). I generally order Petit as these are 3g jars and I have waay too much eye shadow that I doubt I'll ever even use up the 3g jars unless I use it religiously every day. Her TAT is a bit on the longer side, around 10-14 business days but her products are SO worth it! Also, with every purchase over $10 she give you a free gift with purchase (GWP) 3g jar of eye shadow that is not part of her normal collection. The GWP changes just about every week and usually once they're gone you can't get them anymore.

I am a huge fan of Hello Kitty so when I heard she was releasing a Hello Kitty collection I knew it would be mine! I ordered all the eye shadows in the collection in the Petit sizes. There are also a few blushes, glitter liners and lippies in the collection but I haven't purchased those yet (I probably Anyways, on to the swatches...oh by the way I swatched these over a primer from Lucky107 Cosmetics instead of the usual MAC Painterly paint pot simply because I wanted to test out the Lucky107 primer. I'll be reviewing Lucky107 back to the swatches.

Balletusa - Medium dusty lilac
Sugar Bunnies - Coppery light brown with green iridescent glitter
Hana Maru - Bright pearly white with holographic glitter
Landry - Dark bronzed brown with copper shimmer

My Melody - Soft baby pink with a light green/gold duochrome
Chococat - Drab army brown satin
Purin - Soft golden yellow with red glitter
Sugar Minuet - Royal purple with aqua glitter

Badtz Maru - Medium chocolate brown with gold glitter
Chi Chai Monchan - Bright strawberry pink satin.
Deery Lou - Light chocolate brown with holographic glitter

Keroppi - Light sea foam green with purple glitter
Spottie Dottie - Soft rose pink with gold shift and a touch of holographic glitter

The pictures don't quite do justice to the eye shadows but at least you have an idea of what they look like. =) Are you in love with DGC yet? Well hopefully you are now or will be after I show off and review my DGC lippie collection as well as my newest order which is in the mail right now (and it is a large one since I ordered during their first ever sale)! DGC really does have something for everyone and she keeps expanding her product offerings which is awesome (well not so awesome for my wallet =P).

@Rachel, Aren't they? I believe these pics show the shadows a bit darker than real's probably because of the lighting.

Those are all very preety colors. But a little out of my taste range. Still preety though :)

Amanda S. said...

@Katt, I've noticed you're into the really bright colors. =) DGC is a little more on the neutral side for the most part.

Love the swatches. I got a couple of those I didn't realise they were in the Hello Kitty collection... now I have the urge of buying the rest and making the collection complete lol

SilhouetteScreams said...

Oh my gosh, your swatches are AWESOME. All the eyeshadows look so pretty - so metallic and sparkly! I need to try out DGC sooooon :'(

Amanda S. said...

@Martian, the whole collection is gorgeous!

@Jill I know me too! And Susan is such a sweetie!

@Jerry YES!! DGC is a must try! All the pics are in direct sunlight which makes them really shimmery! They aren't quite metallic though.
