Saucebox Cosmetics review and swatches!

I first saw Saucebox cosmetics at IMATS a year or so ago and I'm not sure why I didn't pick anything up, but when I went to PHAMExpo I made sure to purchase something. I bought an eyeshadow in Psychic which is a really pretty light apricot orange color. I have a MAC eyeshadow that is very similar in color that I use a lot in my crease so I thought it'd be good to have it as a backup. They gave a free mascara with purchase but I have yet to try it.

Since I've had Psychic, I've been using it so much! Almost everyday! It's so much better than my MAC eyeshadow! The color is very highly pigmented. It blends beautifully. I have nothing bad to say about this's perfection! So because I fell in love with this eyeshadow I was lemming for MORE!! Lol! I follow saucebox on instagram and they had a $10 off coupon code recently so I took it upon myself to order a couple more shadows! Unfortunately many of the colors I wanted were out of stock but I did get two more eye shadows in First Date and Russian Rouge.

First Date, Russian Rouge, and Psychic

The packaging comes in a paper/cardboard box type of packaging, which I'm fine with because If I want to depot them it will be super easy! 

First Date, Russian Rouge, and Psychic

These are one finger swiped swatches! You barely have to touch it to pick up the color! It's insane how opaque these are! Isn't Russian rouge stunning! 

Like I said these are so easy to work with since they blend so easily. You can get fallout since the shadows are so intense but just tap off any excess, especially with Russian Rouge. 

Now I've been using all of these on my eyes as intended but First Date and Psychic make amazing blushes!! No it's not overkill either! Since they are lighter shades of pink and peach they are easy to work with and blend in the cheeks with ease. Double the bang for your money with these shades!  

The single eyeshadows are $8.75 each and they have a few different palettes as well. I need to get more asap!! :D 

Definitely check them out online at . You will fall in love with their eye shadows just like I did!

I love talking with everyone on there!!

I just recently found saucebox cosmetics on Instagram. I bought 3 single shades Killer,Caramella, & Black Widow. I was only looking for something to help my smokey looks. But because I love them soooo much... I hope to buy more of the other colors soon.

@QueenDiva Oooh they are such great shadows! Glad to hear you like them! I actually just ordered a palette from them and will have swatches and a review after I've had some time to test them. :)
