Rose Marie Shadows Review, Swatches and Giveaway

               I was recently sent a package of samples from Rose Marie Shadows. I received 5 large sample baggies. Sample baggies range in price from $5 -$20. You can get 5 for $5 here. Rose Marie Shadows is a  new company that opened in September and sells through etsy.  They offer a large variety of pigments and also carry blush and foundation.

         The sample baggies were large sized baggies and fairly full of pigment. I am totally out of pots so I have not been repotting my samples lately. ::Sad Face:: but these samples would fill a 3 gram jar at least half way. The labels contained pigment name and website but no ingredients. The owner informed me that since they are such a new company they have not perfected their labeling yet.

I asked the owner to tell me something about the company and here is what she had to say.

  We are new company that wanted to start making some unique colors that we normally didn't see. We hand make everything and the ingredients are listed on our home site. We welcome people's requests for custom colors and are just trying to get our name out there.

         I had these baggies in my "To Do" bin for a few weeks and I was eyeballing Mermaid every time I opened up my closet. It is such a gorgeous color in the baggie and swatched it was just as awesome. You know me and my teals!! All of the colors swatched quite nicely. They went on pretty opaque with and without a base as you can see. Rose Marie Shadows offers 5 gram jars for only $3.00. This is exactly what new mineral makeup companies should do. Offer your product at a lower price so more people can and will try it out! Rose Marie Shadows offers over 45 different pigment colors and their product photos are great quality.
           For this look I used Pocahontas, Pirate Purple and Mermaid. I was highly impressed with both Pocahontas and Mermaid. Pirate Purple is nice but I prefer my purples much deeper and darker. I liked these pigments quite a bit. They were very easy to blend and went on opaque with the exception of Pirate Purple which is more of a sheer purple.
Overall thoughts?
                I like this company. The product is very nice and the price is extremely low. You can build a very nice stash of 5 gram jars since they are only $3 each. Browsing the etsy shop I see quite a few colors that I like and plan on getting after my no buy is over. What do you think? Have you tried Rose Marie Shadows? If so what did you think?
