I was so excited to finally receive my order from Darling Girl! This is an indie brand that makes some beautiful pigments, blushes and much more. The website also has some great swatches and photos of each product so it’s very easy to use. The turn around time when I ordered was 20-22 business days and it took a little under a month to get here.
I ordered four eyeshadows in the petit size (2.50) and the blogger review pack which let’s you choose either four eyeshadow or blush samples and one petit size.

▫️With using the beige base (top) the colors came out just as they are, when using the black base (bttm) they came out either darker, or with different colored shifts showing through.
Eyeshadow pigment ‘Barabella’
On the DG website it is described as “..a metallic melon-y gold with a red/orange flash”. This is a muted copper when on a skin tone base and becomes more vibrant under the black base. It looks really pretty and natural on the eyes.
Matte I’d Like To Find collection ‘Untamed Desire’
DG website “buttery smooth powder blue” This collection is an all matte collection with names based on romance novels. I want every single shadow! They go from muted, light colors to vibrant.
Oh The Horror collection ‘Here’s Johnny’
This is a Halloween themed collection inspired by classic movie villains and monsters. DG describes this as “blackened red with color shifting sparkle”. On me it came out with a more purple shift.
Darling Grrl collection ‘Ruby Soho’
DG: “ruby red with lavender shimmers”. This was my gift with purchase, at first I was a little wary because it’s a red shade, but put over a black base it becomes a cool magenta shade with purple sparkle.
Soft Focus Blush ‘The Magic Lamp’
This is a “mid tone lavender with reddish undertones” on me I didn’t really see any reddish undertones but it is a really cool blush color! I’ve always wanted to try a purple blush!
