Swatch Post! Sugar Skull Minerals Fall Collection & Bejeweled Collection

Hey everyone! I know I promised this post would be up like a week ago, but I got a little sidetracked. The owner of Sugar Skull Minerals was kind enough to send me samples of all the colors in her two newest collections to share with you all. The first set of swatches I have for you are from the Fall Collection, which is currently available for purchase, however it is a limited edition collection and will no longer be available after December 1st. The second group of swatches are from the Bejeweled Collection, which is currently available for pre-order and will start shipping October 1st. This collection will be permanent. Keep reading after the break to check out the swatches!

The Fall Collection:

Apple Jack- Metallic pink/mauve with lots of silver reflects
Maize- Orange/gold with a warm mauve base
Whiskey Tango- Orange/brown with red/gold reflects
Rust- Metallic gold/copper with lots of copper reflects
Cider- Copper toned light brown
Candle Lit- Light shimmery champagne gold
Dusty- Muted gray/green with teeny blue reflects
Blood Moon- Maroon/brown

Out of this collection Rust and Blood Moon are my favorites. Candle Lit makes an excellent highlighter and I plan on using it for that purpose, rather than using it as a shadow.

The Bejeweled Collection:

Verdelite- A light, shiny emerald green
Citrine- A rich goldenrod
Chocolate Pearl- Light chocolate/tan with multicolored reflects
Amethyst- Dark amethyst purple
Garnet- Deep dark red
Star Sapphire- Royal blue

Garnet and Chocolate Pearl are my favorites from this collection.

As with any Sugar Skull Minerals shadows I've tried, the shadows in both of these collections are nicely pigmented and they apply smoothly and blend with ease! I highly recommend picking these collections up, especially the Fall Collection since it's LE.

Here are two looks I created using some shadows from these collections:

Here I used only two shadows! Urban Decay's Walk of Shame to highlight and SSM Garnet on the lid and crease. I applied a Maybelline Color Tattoo in Dramatic Black as a base on the lid to add depth.

For this look I used SSM Candle Lit to highlight and Rust on the lid. The crease colors are Mauve, Sable, and Espresso from the Lorac Pro Palette.

Both looks include Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion, Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Chocolate, and Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel.

I hope you enjoyed this swatch post and the looks I had to share with you. Head over to Sugar Skull Minerals shop on Etsy to pick up these pretties for your self!
