Victorian Disco Cosmetics Glitters And Shines

Be forewarned, this post is going to have many photos!

It's been a while since I came across an indie mineral make-up company that I really wanted to try.  But I came across a post on Beautylish.com and submitted my info to test some new products for a new line called Victorian Disco Cosmetics.  I like the name, it sounds lush and sparkly.  Then I started to see some sneak peek photos on their Facebook fan page and the colors looked fabulous!  I was seeing color combinations I had not seen before with other indie brands.  And Victorian Disco Cosmetics has mixed glitters!  So many people sell glitters and they are exactly what arrives from the wholesale company, but these have multiple colors mixed together and they are gorgeous.  These would be perfect if you're wanting to try out the new glittery eyebrows trend!


Cute Packaging!


 My sample package arrived yesterday and everything was so professionally presented.  The samples were all in a cute cellophane bag with a brand sticker sealing it shut.  The envelope was quite large for samples alone, but it ensured that they arrived to me safely and I can completely appreciate that.










Pigment Swatches (top to bottom):
Powdered Wig, Baroque, Revolutionary Ball, Sailor Saturn, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Pluto, Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Uranus






 The pigments are so very pretty.  They are bright and what you see is what you get. I love that.  The only color that did not perform 100% is Revolutionary Ball, the more you try to blend it, the more it rubs down and loses intensity.  It sounds logical, but it doesn't just blend out, it disappears some.  And for the record, I used Too Faced's Shadow Insurance and NYX's pearly white eyeshadow base and it only disappeared when I swatched it on my arm.  It performed perfectly when I used it on my eye.  I find the Sailor colors very appealing.  The collection is actually quite large and I simply love the colors.  There is also a really fabulous Star Wars-inspired collection too!

Now, onto those glitters!


Bling Pro is a lovely deep pink/magenta color.  I used LA Splash's eye primer/sealer to set these.  Simply apply the base and tap the glitter onto it.













Predator is stunning.  It's not just another metallic gold or bronze.  There is a subtle mix of both colors and it creates a rich finish.






ACR is my favorite glitter out of what I received.  It's a great mix of a medium-purple glitter, silver glitter and I believe a touch of gold glitter.  It's a beautiful, multidimensional color that provides a subtle, yet very glamorous pop of color.











Riot Shield is a straight purple glitter.  It's almost a royal purple.  A must for fans of deep, twinkling colors.






After swatching the products, I was more than ready to play!
Here is the first look I created with Victorian Disco Cosmetics:

Colors Used:  Powdered Wig, Sailor Uranus, Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Mercury






My next look was a more dramatic, smoky look:

Products Used:  Powdered Wig, Sailor Saturn, Revolutionary Ball, Baroque and it's all topped off with ACR glitter.



All in all, I'm pleased with the samples I got from Victorian Disco Cosmetics.  And I mustn't forget that they label all of the samples with the ingredients and if the products are lip safe or not.  I look forward to trying out more!

Predator is yummy looking! I wonder if this is the new company that bought out Antoinettes revolution cosmetics? My only jump to that is powdered wigs was a color of thiers. Hmmm, either way these are lovely colors!
