I have yet to be let down by an Indie makeup company, and Detrivore is no different. Their shadows are AMAZING. You'll see in my swatches that I swatched them dry and over a sticky base (Pixie Epoxy) and some of them look just as bold and pigmented dry as they do over the base. I'm really impressed. I didn't have time to take pictures of me wearing the shadows, but just know they wear extremely well, blend well, and don't fade over time. I need to buy more!
Know what else is cool? Shipping is free for all US orders, no matter how little or how much you buy. I can think of another company that does that. And international shipping is only $5, which is really good, also.
I ordered 10 shadows and I received 2 free samples. The jars are shrink wrapped and the ingredients are on the shrink wrap so they will get thrown away. I know many people would prefer that the ingredients were permanently on the jars. The sample baggies also have ingredient stickers.
The bottom labels are cute. The satin shadows have a spider on the label while the regular line of shadows has a beetle (a scarab?). The names are all "dark" or "dirty", which fits in with the theme of the shop. In other words, not cutesy or pretty names at all.

To be honest, the regular eyeshadows, which are $3, seem just as pigmented as the $5 Satin eyeshadows (which are supposed to be more so). This isn't a complaint at all, as $3 is a really good price for eyeshadow, as is $5.

I love all of these eyeshadows and plan to make another order as soon as I can. Hurry and order while you can because the owner is moving and will be shutting her shop down from June 4th until the end of July. Even if you only get a shadow or two, it's worth it as you don't even have to pay shipping! And my order arrived very quickly.
Here is the Detrivore Cosmetics website. Satin shadows sell for $5 and the original collection shadows sell for $3. They also sell matte eyeshadows, highlighters, blushes, an eye shadow primer, and face powders.
Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!
