I think one of my favorite things that got me about this company to boot, was the makeup packaging. You can not see it here, but the full size jars come plastic sealed, red string attached with makeup ingredients. You also get a plant-able thank you card.
The name of the colors are on the bottom of each jar. The full size (pictured below) has the name and DHD logo on the sticker. These hold and mine always have from 1.75-2 grams of product stuffed inside.
The sample size containers come in clam-shells and have the name and ingredients on the bottom.
However, I do believe she packages your entire purchase and adds a "scroll" inside with the ingredients for full size containers, instead of tying little strings on each individual jar. Which to me is now a lot easier and less time consuming, untying all the little strings and pulling ingredients off. But, I did think that was adorable and drew me in.
The only thing I did not like was the sifters inside, but they have now made the option to get them with or without, so my problem was solved.
And on with the swatches - It's my favorite part, so it must be yours, too. ;)
NOTE: All swatches and photos have been taken with a flash by my window.
The first color I would like to share is:
Product description: A medium to light natural brown shadow. Inspired by Porcelain & The Tramps Transparent.
I would like to add that it also has a beautiful shimmer - it tends to give a gray looking hue as well, I guess depending on the lighting and photo.
Product Description: A vibrant lemon yellow shadow with yellow sparkle. Inspired by my life in the carnival industry and the bright colors and beauty of the shows.
I find this description very accurate.
Product description: A bright cool-toned green shadow with a champagne sheen. Inspired by the liquor Absinthe, and the green fairy myth.
This color was a bit tricky to me to capture, this photo is with a flash, but without a flash it was quite a bit darker. I also like to use it with a foiling serum and it makes a gorgeous liner.
Product description: A medium brown shadow with red sparkle and red & green undertones.
This color is one of my favorites and sparkles like no other! For a brown/champagne color as I like to call it, it is stunning.
Product description: A burgundy wine colored shadow. Inspired by the Hush Sound's Wine Red.
I find this to be between burgundy and rose colored with silver sparkle
Product description: A pale rusty red with green sheen and aqua sparkle. Inspired by the popular new fairytale t.v. show, Once Upon A Time.
Product description: A dark orange/bronze shadow. Inspired by Tim Burton's Jack Skellington of The Nightmare Before Christmas.
I think the description matches, but more of a bronze then an orange with the flash on.
And last, but certainly not least I have here is:
Product description: A smokey forest green shadow with green sparkle and copper undertones.
I find this color to be more of an aqua color, than forest green, but none the less still gorgeous.
Dark Heart Designs eyeshadows are smooth and blendable and I have a ton of them, but this was just a few I recently received, so I thought I would share :)
Almost everything that is sold is vegan and cruelty free, if there is a product that is not vegan, it is marked as so (which I think there are very few, like the reds.)
Also, as a consumer, I highly recommend this company.
They were having a bit of shipping delays during and from the holidays, but will be back on schedule very soon. Oh and if there are delays, the owner always contacts you to let you know, so I find that to be amazing customer service :)
