Detrivore Cosmetics Graveyard Collection Swatches

I am in lurrrrrve.  A year ago if you told me I would have loved neutrals I would have told you where to go.  I was all "BRIGHTAH IS BETTAH!" But when I saw the Graveyard Collection from Detrivore I wanted them.  I own a few neutrals from my Too Faced and Tarte palettes but not much from indie brands.  I prefer indie.  I like that I can buy 3-6 more eyeshadows to 1 MAC shadow.  I like that I actually know who the heck is making my makeup.  I just like it.  But these colours dudes.  I LOVES THEM!


There are a few funky colours in this collection if neutrals aren't your thing (they will be), but it was the mattey goodness combined with all the pretty creamy browns that drew me in.  Lately I've been oogling pin-up makeup looks and I thought this collection would put together a really cute retro pinup look.


The Graveyard Collection consists of 20 matte shades in 5gr jars for $5 each or you can click the "buy all" option and get all 20 for $45 which makes them just $2.25 a jar which is AWESOME!


Some of the browns look similar but not similar enough for me to go through and narrow them down to favourites.  I tried. In the end I just decided I liked and needed them all.


So enough of me blahblahblahing and here are the swatches! As usual clicking makes em BIGGARRRR

Autopsy is actually there (in the browns group) but my skintone makes it almost pull off a disappearing act.  That just means SWEET BROWBONE SHADE!  Some of you may be like "why on Earth do you want a shade that matches your skintone?" 

I'll tell ya why.  DARK EYESKIN/UGLY VEIN ACTION!  Even with loads of sleep I somehow got blessed with super dark eye skintones/cirles/etc. 

I tried to find a pic that best shows this but this will have to do.

 

Id rather have this



I need the skintone colour to murder all that eyelid darkness.  

I didn't use any of the Graveyard shades for this look but 'twas just an example.

Some people look beauuuuutiful makeup free. 
  
I am not one of those people :D

So now that I kinda got off topic, see any shades you like?

  5. I've been lemming this collection but since I have so much that never gets worn I've restrained myself. Thanks for posting swatches so I can make a few choices.
