Victorian Disco Cosmetics Review

About a month ago, I found a woman named Smashley on the Beautylish forum’s. She was about to launch the store for her cosmetics that she had been labouring away on for a year! She wanted to know if certain ladies would like to be apart of the trials; so Immediately I jumped at the chance, as I adore mineral shadows…and let’s face it anything Victorian and anything Disco.

 She sent me a bubble mailer with a pretty, decorative cellophane bag; closed with a VDC logo sticker. On the bag was an adorable Hello Kitty Post-It with a personalized note, and in the bag were my 10 products to review.
She has a few different collections prepared for the launch. My first 5 shadows are from the Galaxy Down The Street collection, which in my opinion is a pretty Kick Arse name for a collection.
The Colours I received are: Do the Jabba Jabba, R2, The Fett, Ewok Pajama Party, and Yoda’s Yoga Matt. First of all, the name’s are freaking awesome! Do the Jabba Jabba is this amazing bright, lemony yellow with goldy shimmer-It has awesome pigmentation and blends really nicely. R2 is a beautiful, vivid Sky Blue with Bright, blue shimmer-It has really nice staying power, an eye shadow primer or foiling makes this colour leap off your face! The Fett is one of my favorites! It is a really nice, dusty kind of Violet, with pink and blue shimmer. It is gorgeous foiled! It makes brown eyes and green eyes POP like you wouldn’t believe! Ewok Pyjama Party is the only shadow out of 8 that I’m not too happy with, it is this pretty, dusty, medium grey with purple, gold and green shimmer; but the colour on falls very short of any expectation I had, the pigmentation just isn’t there, neither is the blend-ability, I found this colour to be kind of chalky in texture, I wanted to love it, but it just wasn’t in the cards! Last but definitely not least, Yoda’s Yoga Matt; It is a pale, pale, springy green, with golden/silvery and pink shimmer! It is a stunning highlight colour, and works extremely well if applied to damp primer. The pigmentation and blend-ability are so there with one!
The Next Collection We shall visit is Rococo Roller Rink-which is an even more kick-arse name than the last! The Colours I received from this collection are: Pannier, Revolutionary Ball and Monarchy. Pannier is this awesome Grey/Bronze duo-chrome, with metallic effects. This one is great for foiling, it lends itself to some very elegant makeup looks! The pigmentation and colour payoff are fantastic although it doesn’t have excellent blend-ability like Do The Jabba Jabba has. Revolutionary Ball is this amazing Black/ deep Charcoal base with vibrant blue and purpley-pink shimmer. It is wonderful, if you do tend to be heavy handed when blending, this colour will be gone quick though, it tends to blend away into nothing very quickly! Monarchy is a sassy, medium green with gold and blue shimmer. It is amazingly pigmented, and blends very nicely; I am also in love with the colour payoff, a little bit, definitely goes a very long way with this colour!

Lastly, I received two cosmetic Glitters in Predator, and AC-130. These Glitters are very finely milled hexagonal glitters. Predator is this amazing silvery pink, that reminds me of pearl-ized sequins. AC-130 is a sublime golden glitter, It has bronze-y bits and sunny golden bits, it reminds me of a beautiful beach in summer! The Glitters were applied over my L.A Splash, Splashproof Sealer/Base, and were super beautiful, they have this lovely sheen to their shine;)
CONS: EWOK PAJAMA PARTY! I wanted to love this colour, In the bag it shows a dusty medium grey with purple and blue shimmer. But the pigmentation is too far away, This shadow in particular is very, very chalky-making it hard to work with, and near impossible to apply wet or on primer; likewise to apply dry on bare skin.

That is my only main con! I would rate this company a solid 8.5/10. The quality is good, the formulas are nice, pigmentation and colour payoff are great! I’m in Love with the collections and their respective names, and a super plus, plus is that all the shadows are Vegan! So virtually anyone can use them! I can’t wait to order more!
