Happy Monday! Wow, we are already at the end of February! I can't believe how fast this month went!

I made an announcement a few weeks back that I was working with a company called Apocalyptic Beauty. I just received my first package and wanted to share with you and do a review!

About Apocalyptic Beauty:

"Beauty products inspired by pop culture, horror, the ironic and the absurd -- we proudly embrace the moniker 'Makeup of the Damned.'"

Apocalyptic Beauty is a newer company offering 100% Vegan and Cruelty-free cosmetics. Eyeshadows come in a 5g jar, about 3/4 tsp, for $5. Made in Louisana and run by Alisha Adkins. Colors range from light and bright to dark and sultry. Everyone is sure to find something they love.

The other day, I was happy to see that I got my first package! I received 9 eyeshadows and just wait til you see the swatches :)

Final Thoughts:

I am really looking forward to see what else Apocalyptic Beauty has in store! I am loving the shadows. Keep in mind, they are pigments so you will experience some fall out. They are easy to use and look great! Super build-able, and easy to blend. The colors are vibrant and look great! The price of $5 is great for the quality and they even have sample packs available.
