Femme Fatale Eyeshadow Swatches

I promise this isn't turning into a straight up beauty blog, but every time I post something remotely beauty related I get a tonne of hits and I'm having a wee obsession with makeup and hair so hence I may put up the occasional post that's not entirely nail related. Please don't hate me!
Anyway, I bought a bunch of sampler eyeshadows from Femme Fatale Costmetics earlier in the year, so I thought I would swatch them all as they are all stunning and even though they were sample size, I am getting a lot of wear out of them. I'm sure you are already aware but Femme Fatale is an amazing site for all indie makeup, nail and pretty scented things. They also have a little storefront on their warehouse in Brisbane - which I visited in an old post.  The sample size shadows are all $5.50, although once in a blue moon they do have a sale which is when I nabbed most of these. Not all of them are still available, but I will link up the ones that still are. 
I personally find these work better when used with a glitter primer, so all these swatches are done over Glamour Doll Eyes Glitter Fix.

Don't Go To Sleep! - A rich brown/purple (or blurple) with a pink shimmer. It's very shifty this one which makes getting a decent photo pretty much impossible, but it's very pretty and very wearable. Also discontinued and on sale - so you should go pick it up!

Sea of Something - The website describes this is Eggplant, but I feel like it's more of a strong vibrant navy with blue shimmer. Super stunning and is now my go to going out shade.

 Dead House - A gorgeous vibrant purple with strong blue shift. You definitely need a good primer for this baby for full shimmer goodness, but oh boy is it pretty!

 Hot-Cold Goodies - a pale aqua with a strong pink shimmer. I love these pale shades to wear during the day. Pop it on the lid and then a nude into the crease so its all nice and blendy. Super easy and I get so many compliments. 

Inflatable Pool Giraffe - This is one of the discontinued babies that you can't get anymore, but I'm mean and going to show you anyway. It's an orange/brown with a pink shimmer to it. Very unusual, but I really like it.
Mrs. Twinkle - A pale purple with gold shimmer. Another of my favourite daytime ones. It's quite similar to Dr Eek (which I haven't swatched here, but honestly go google it and get it. It's spectacular) but it's more on the shimmer than glitter and I find the fallout a bit easier to handle.

Little Polly Flinders -  A yellow/orange with an almost green shimmer which makes it look very fiery and glowy.

Grave Moss - Pale green with extra green shimmer. The swatches on their website look a bit darker than I find this looks on my pasty skin, I normally hate greens but this is totally beautiful and wearable.
