Hello all! I hope your week is going well! This weather is scorchio, isn't it?
I ordered some samples from Chinovi Cosmetics about a month ago and they came through yesterday. One of the things I love most about ordering things from the US are the sweeties sellers sometimes include! I'm a massive fan of Americana, especially yummy edible things.
|Everything came in a cute pink paper bag|
The clamshells have a heaped 1/8th tea spoon of product in and a little goes a very long way.
This is how they open up:
Swatches - lots of:
Swatched on bare skin using a slightly damp sponge applicator (because they're a lot easier to clean quickly than proper eyeshadow brushes.)
Onto the hand swatches so you can see how these babies shift in the light.
At the moment Chinovi only do samples. 13 samples cost $10 and you can buy them here. They also do sample baggies and a pack of 20 clamshells.
This is what happens when you don't open a clamshell carefully enough :)
The colours are absolutely stunning. There are no full sizes on the website at the moment, I think because they haven't officially launched the store online yet. I will probably order more clamshell samples soon. As soon as full sizes are available I'll be getting a few.
My favourite colours of the bunch are Sauced, Princess, Poww, Hiccup and Amen. If I had to pick an absolute fave I think it'd be Hiccup. It's just beautiful.
What do you think about Chinovi? Are you tempted to buy some samples?
