Taylor Made Minerals Swatches!

Hi all!

After posting about my Taylor Made Minerals haul yesterday it occurred to me that of course I should swatch those samples! Everyone who belongs to the Mineral Makeup Fanatic Family (lol!) knows from experience never to judge a shade from just looking at the sample baggie; it rarely looks the same on the lids.

So, I spent the afternoon swatching these for you, whoa - it was hard work ;) One shade is missing - it's Disco, which is a super bright blue shimmering shade - I didn't realize this until just about now, sorry...

Now all of these swatches were patted on dry with no base, on fair-medium skin (which is probably closer to medium right now - I've picked up some color from being out in the sun it seems ;))

Hi Kittyluvscolor!
Yes, it was a nice haul to receive. In fact, so nice that I placed yet another order yesterday - I just couldn't help myself! ;)

They are all beautiful. I feel a bit weird saying my favourite is called Grave, but there you go!

Such pretty colors! Can't wait to see what you'll do with them. I love all the purple shades.
