8 Bit Cosmetics - Everyone's A Hero


The lovely Nicole from 8 Bit Cosmetics recently sent some samples of her newest collection, Everyone's A Hero, for the gift bags and a few for me to test out. I chose four that stood out to me. Truthfully I wanted to keep the whole collection. I am going to order the ones I am missing soon. I am in LOVE with this collection. I have not been this excited about a loose pigment collection in some time!!

 I chose The Cat, which is a dark matte purple, Apocalyptic, which is described as teal which shimmer, All American Hero which is described as a true royal blue and Protege, which is described as red with a berry tint. I really like the formula of the matte shades. Above are sample baggies which I potted into my own 3 gram jars. Samples are only $1 and as you can see, you get a lot of product!!

Here is a look I did using The Cat and Protege
Here is a look I did last week using Will, Apocalyptic, All American Hero and The Cat

I have tried quite a few different colors from 8 Bit Cosmetics and so far I have been HIGHLY impressed. The colors are gorgeous and the textures have been very easy to work with. All the pigments I have tried have been opaque and very vivid. If you are looking to add some bold color to your collection than check 8 Bit Cosmetics out! Pricing range from $1 samples to $4 jars.  You can see some of my other 8 Bit swatches here and here

Have you tried 8 Bit Cosmetics? If so, what pigments do you have and what are your favorites?
 Thanks for reading,


  1. I've never heard of this company before, I think. The Cat, Apocalyptic and All American Hero sort of look like the colors in the newer Sugarpill palette, or am I imagining that?

    1. They are in the same color family for sure. If you were to compare I would say The Cat was closer to Poison Plum, Apocalyptic is much more teal than Mochi and All American Hero is fairly close to Velocity.

  2. I've never heard of this company either. I'm impressed~ Thanks for the swatches.
