I Say Goodbye to a Sweet Libertine Fav..and Say Hello to 3 More

We just had a Sweet Libertine post, but I wanted to get this up quickly because one of the shadows on here that I love was just added to the Sweet Libertine Going, Going, Gone list.  So without further delay, here is a quartet of gorgeous shadows that are in heavy rotation this week.

Sweet Libertine is an indie brand with a loyal following.   Their products are a fun combination of quality, high pigment shadows with quirky and sometimes even naughty names.  Some of their shadows, like my previously reviewed Thai Silk, are beauty legend!

Schrodingers Cat  $6.00

Schrodinger's Cat is a shimmering blonde with a subtle peach undertone and multi colored sparkle

Beaded Curtain $6.00

Beaded Curtain is a medium to light copper with a pinkish tinge and pink sparkles

Careful, Icarus (To be discontinued) $6.00

Careful, Icarus is a dusty pink taupe with silver sparkle

Little Miss Strange $6.00

Little Miss Strange is a rich cocoa taupe with multi color sparkle

Final Thoughts

First off, Careful, Icarus is a really beautiful light taupe, for those of us who crave taupes.  It is being discontinued so at some point in the near future this color will be gone.  It was my favorite of the bunch too. If you were a fan of MAC Style Snob, this is a fair dupe. Little Miss Strange is another hit.  In the bag it looks like a gunmetal gray.  I loved the depth and nuance of the color, not quite gray, not quite brown, not quite taupe and with sparkle?  Oh yeah!  Beaded Curtain, another hit.  I don't like strong coppers that are too metallic.  This shadow captures the warmth of copper without being too intense.  Schrodinger' Cat, is a wonderful highlight color, and I just like the name too.

If you have any other Sweet Libertine shadows, check out their Going, Going, Gone page.  They are discontinuing some colors (even a few popular ones) to streamline inventory.  Make sure your favorite is not on that list!

Where to Buy:  Sweet Libertine
Price: $5-8 for full sized I don't see any exact size, but looks to be about 1 gram (ish) in a 5 gram sifter jar.

  1. these shadows are gorgeous! and less expensive than, say, UD Naked shadows ;)

  2. These are all so pretty! I can't believe they're discontinuing Careful, Icaraus; it looks like such a nice neutral shade.
