**Update** Sadly I wrote this blog after the new year and completely forgot to upload it. =( So, I’m uploading it now and if you have any questions about the colors please just leave a comment. Also, the DarkHearts store has reopened onto store envy, so here is her new link http://www.storenvy.com/stores/16608-dark-heart-designs-cosmetics
So today I received a much anticipated package from Dark Hearts Design. I’d link you to the website because it’s currently closed down but go like them on Facebook so you’ll be updated on the status of the store https://www.facebook.com/darkheartdesigns. I first heard about them from @Triciafitz88 on twitter when she mentioned getting an order from them. Of course the name drew my attention, then it was the 50% sale they had during November, and I was finally sold by the adorable packaging (yes, I’m a package whore) and great colors. I only picked out a few things because I currently have so much make up and so much of it doesn’t get used. I placed my order a couple days before black Friday and was sure I’d receive my package with in just a few weeks, but unfortunately it took almost a month and a half to receive it. Since it took so long to receive it I didn’t even remember what I bought and since the store is shut down I can’t link you to the products. I actually had even forgotten about the order because it took three weeks to get an email about being behind on orders. So, I got some samplers of the gel liner/eye brighteners, two eye shadows, a sample of blush, and a liquid shimmer/glitter. I immediately fell in love with the colors.
When I first looked at the gel liner/eye light I was worried that they would smudge terribly. After I swatched them and took pictures I rubbed vigorously and they didn’t budge a bit, which made me happy. I absolutely adored the two eye shadows that I got and even did a new eye look as soon as I was done taking pictures. I haven’t worn make up since Christmas because of getting migraines that lasted till New Years eve and I’ve been feeling sick for the past two weeks but I just couldn’t help but get excited by seeing the colors. What’s even weirder was that it was a yellow color that excited me and I don’t think I’ve ever done a look with yellow.
My review of the company: I didn’t like that it took well over a month to receive my product, I didn’t like the lack of communications, or the excuse that she was working crazy hours at her job because of the holiday, which was why she was behind. HOWEVER, her products are quite amazing. Besides the cute packaging, which is so different from many of homemade cosmetic companies, the products are great in quality. The eyeshadow does not crease (with primer) and the gel liners, like I mentioned, were smudge proof. And although I haven’t ordered from her since I definitely plan on ordering again.
