The collection features 4 matte shadows and 2 lipsticks. The colors were requested by Courtney of Kiss & Makeup, Elizabeth of Dotty Ann, and Lacy (who’s been poking me for mattes for ages). A big thank you to all of them for the inspiration!
To name this collection we had vintage Hollywood movie stars in mind. I still believe nothing says old school glamour like a classic Hollywood starlet. Audrey Hepburn was always the height of class and a lady, Marilyn Monroe was an iconic beauty, Elizabeth Taylor was gorgeous and bold, Ava Gardner was charming and mysterious, Grace Kelly was her namesake; graceful, and Sophia Loren was a fiery, exotic beauty.
- Audrey – Black
- Elizabeth – White
- Ava – Nude
- Grace – Cream
- Sophia – Pink
- Marilyn – Red
You can find the Vogue High Fashion contest by clicking here. Its currently ended but the collection will be available soon.
While I was unable to release the Dark Heart Valentine collection in time due to health reasons, the new collection will still be available. This year’s collection features two sparkly shadows and our first two matte shades that we’ve ever released.
When I made the V-day collection I had HIM’s song St Valentine playing in my head. In case you’re not familiar it, this is the chorus:
“Hey baby let me be your Valentine, St. Valentine…
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep the lie alive.
Like St. Valentine”
I decided to theme the whole collection based on some of my favorite HIM songs, two being themed towards lighter, uncomplicated types of love while the other two are darker in theme and color.
- St. Valentine – A matte pink with a very subtle twist of lavender
- In Joy and Sorrow – A shimmery beige-gold
- Heartkiller – A deep matte brown
- Wicked Game – A shimmery copper-brown
A few special editions of this collection came with two of our nail polish prototypes. They may return when we’re able to work on the polish line exclusively.
Swatches are by Ashley of ~Randomly Me~. The left is with flash and the right is without.
Where to buy:
This collection will be available primarily through Ebay’s Giving Works charity listings. I’ve wanted to donate and be involved with charities for a while now but I get so busy its hard to keep track of the funding. I want to make sure things are legitimately going to the charities they should be. By listing with Giving Works, they take care of all that and all I’ll have to do is set up the item and ship it once its sold.
I thought limiting this collection to charity would be a great way to support some good causes and make it even more special. Some sets will also be sponsored by some of your favorite artists.
The first set is sponsored by Katie Alves. You might know her from her amazing makeup scenes like the following:
You can find her sponsored collection listing here, where 60% of the final price goes to the Humane Society: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Too-Late-For-Love-A-HIM-Inspired-Handmade-Cosmetic-Collection/171034209432?ssPageName=WDVW&rd=1&ih=007&category=36865&cmd=ViewItem
