Femme Fatale Worldbreaker Eyeshadow Collection – Swatches & Review

I bought the Femme Fatale Cosmetics Worldbreaker collection yonks ago, based entirely on the pretty swatches on the website. Never mind the fact that I didn’t wear eyeshadow at the time, and have only just started using them. I guess they hold the same appeal as nail polish – they look beautiful within the packaging, and you just know that they’ll look just as beautiful when you eventually get around to wearing them, but until then you’re happy to admire them as is!

The Worldbreaker collection consists of 5 loose mineral eyeshadows based around a purple theme. Like most Femme Fatale collections, this is inspired by some aspect of World of Warcraft, so of course my inner geek can’t resist. As a result, these eyeshadows have magical duochromes and shimmers to give them a gorgeous fantasy-like element.

They’re all buttery smooth and easy to apply, although I had a little bit of trouble with Inner Madness (you can see a bit of unevenness in the swatch application). In the end though they all achieved incredible opacity with little effort. I’ve swatched them here over the De Leon Eye Primer. Click them to enlarge!

Project Pan Empties 51-60

If I was doing a classic Project 100 Pan, I’d be over halfway there! …But I’m not, so I don’t really have any milestones to celebrate. Nonetheless, 60 empty products is still a pretty good effort, considering how few products I managed to use up before I consciously started trying. I’m a serial almost-user-upper, then abandoning the product in a drawer with the last dregs still remaining, and moving on to a newer, more exciting product.

51. LUSH Rudolph Fresh Face Mask – Repurchase? Maybe.

This was a limited edition Christmas product that I actually used up ages ago (because they don’t have a very long shelf life) and completely forgot about, but I hung on to the tub because you can trade them in for a free face mask. It works ok, but I prefer other fresh face masks from LUSH.

52. Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover – Repurchase? Yes.

I’m a bit confused about the oil-free claim, because I found it quite oily, and it left an oily residue on my skin. It doesn’t actually bother me, but it might be a problem for anyone who bought it based on that feature. It’s great at removing waterproof and heavy eye makeup, and is quite possibly my favourite drugstore makeup remover.

53. Paula’s Choice CLEAR Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid – Repurchase? Maybe.

This was a pretty big sample, but although I think I got some decent use out of it, I didn’t notice any major difference to my skin. However, it’s raved about by members of the beauty community so I’m keen to buy a full size bottle and give it another go. The jury’s still out on this one.

54. Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover – Repurchase? Yes.

My mum gave me this sample, and I was actually hoping I wouldn’t like it as much as I do. To be honest, it’s awesome. It removes all traces of eye makeup with a swipe or two. I would repurchase in a heartbeat if it wasn’t so bloody expensive.
