Noella Beauty Works Swatches

Okay, honestly I don't remember how long it took to receive this order, and I wasn't quick enough to snap a picture before the packaging got all crunched up and un-photographable.  So I'm just going to tell you what I think and post some swatches after the jump.

The Shop: Noella Beauty Works

My Order: I ordered three eyeshadows using a buy-three-get-one-free promo, and a 10% off coupon code.

Today's Swatches


From left to right: Milk & Honey, Rose Gold, Rose Silk, and Pink Smoke

These swatches were done on bare skin with a foiled stripe down the center (top row,) and skin prepped with MBA Shadow Poxy.  Top photo shows shadows under normal indoor lighting conditions, bottom photo shows shadows under HD fluorescent lighting.

Overall: I don't recall exactly how long it took to get these, but I guess it couldn't have been too long since I never found myself wondering where they were.  I believe they arrived in a bubble mailer with a business card and an extra layer of bubble wrap around the jars.  I like the black-rimmed jars because I can see the color better without opening the jar.  There are also clear ingredient labels on the bottom of each jar with the color name, the company web address, and proper ingredients.  The colors are pretty, and they apply smoothly and evenly.  I have worn them over UDPP, and they wore without creasing until I wanted to take off my makeup in the evening.  I think the swatches are pretty accurate, with the exception of Pink Smoke, which looks more burgundy in the photos than it does in person; it's almost got a purplish hue, and it's definitely the sparkliest shadow I got in this bunch.  I like the shadows, I had a good experience, and prices were more than reasonable (I got all four 5g jars shipped for under $17.)   If a color catches your eye at Noella Beauty Works, I would absolutely recommend you give it a shot.
