Happy Thanksgiving or, if you don’t celebrate, happy Thursday! Today we are continuing the Devinah Cosmetics swatch party with some shimmers!
Devinah’s shimmers really show you why indie brands are so well-loved. Many of the shimmers are extraordinarily shiny and the range of colors is huge. After trying some of Devinah’s, you will not want to go back to mainstream shimmers. Unless you’re one of those people who can’t get with singles, in which case, what are you doing reading this post?
I will have a separate post or two to finish up the rest of the shifty shadows. Devinah’s Black Friday sale is going all weekend long and I’ll try to get them up before the sale ends, so be sure to check back here for all your multichrome swatch needs!
*cue the party-starting music*
I’ve got almost 80 shimmers to show you all today. All of them can be seen in the flatlay photos above, along with some of their friends from other indie brands. You can spot a Devinah shimmer by the imprinted cursive D in the middle of the pan.
Below, I use Devinah’s own descriptions of each colors as a guide. I highly recommend reading the descriptions when shopping Devinah’s websites because Devinah’s descriptions are unique and fun. I did have to use more of my color-describing skills for some of these though so, as always, refer to the photos to get a more complete understanding of the particular hues represented.
Cali, Kori, and Jouri are smooth and ever so slightly drier than some of the other shimmers.
Criminal and Malibu are very similar. Malibu is slightly cooler than Criminal. Criminal is very smooth and foiled.
Grim and Devious also appear quite similar in these photos, although perhaps a bit less similar than the pair above. Grim is cooler and more pink than Devious.
Blazed and Salvatore are also extremely similar. Salvatore is a touch more pink and brighter than Blazed. Blazed is a very reflective red and one of my favorites.
Cali, Kori, Jouri, and Janae are from the Pink Icing Harmony collection but can also be purchased individually.
Fierce is perfect for fall. I’ll wear it any time of the year though because it’s so pretty against my skin tone. It’s definitely one of my favorites in this group.
Devinah’s description of Paramour claims that it looks great on light and dark skin tones and I have to agree. It’s a gorgeous deepened red.
Stroke is slightly drier than the other shimmers.
Venial is FOILED. Illicit is also extremely foiled. Illicit is like Venial’s darker sister.
Nerfertiti has an interesting texture. It is soft but also slightly dry when swatched, but very smooth. It’s another one of my favorites, which says a lot since I don’t care for golds much these days.
Stunned is…stunningly…smooth. Utopian is similar to Stunned, but deeper and slightly drier.
Serpent is also extremely smooth.
Rockstar is a classic duochrome shade and Devinah’s formula does not disappoint!
Acapulco, Reseda, and Serpent may be discontinued. Such a shame because those are all some beautiful greens!
Phalanx is slightly more textured and grittier than other Devinah shimmers when swatched, but blends out into a beautiful foiled shade.
Briseis is dry in the pan but ridiculously foiled and reflective swatched.
I’ll Get You My Pretty, I’m Just a Dandelion, And Your Little Dog Too, and I’ll Be Tender I’ll Be Gentle are all from the Somewhere over the Rainbow collection, inspired by the Wizard of Oz. They are available for purchase as a bundle and individually. These shadows have a unique finish for Devinah due to the glittery shimmers in them. I’ll Be Tender I’ll Be Gentle can be textured if packed on, but can be smoothed out. It is very shiny!
Are You a Good Witch, Ding-A-Derry, and No Place Like Home are from the Somewhere over the Rainbow collection, inspired by the Wizard of Oz. They can be purchased as a bundle, along with the other shadows in the collection, or individually. Are You A Good witch has some beautiful glitter/shimmer particles. It is another favorite. The whole collection is extra sparkly, but No Place Like Home is especially shiny and reflective.
Sybil is also one of my favorites. It has a gorgeous shiny finish.
Gemma is from the Pink Icing Harmony collection but can also be purchased individually. Gemma is very dry when swatched.
Whew! It’s finally time for this party to end. But join me later this weekend for the grande finale of this prolonged Devinah Cosmetics swatch party.
I’ve talked about a lot of favorites today. Devinah’s shimmers are so special that it’s hard to only pick a few. But I would say the ones that really, really stand out are Blazed, Fierce, Nefertiti, Briseis, Sybil, Ambedo, Vallan, Seduced, Moonlit, and the entire Somewhere over the Rainbow collection. You cannot go wrong with any of those.
As always, this post is not meant to encourage you to buy or not buy anything. But if you are partaking in this weekend of sales, happy shopping!
