Broseidon King of the Brocean-fotd/haul

(Click on the pic to make it bigger and to see the names.)

Surprisingly there hasn't been a lot of buzz about Black Rose Minerals. Jasmine the owner of High Voltage and Heather of Eyeconic both recommended the company to me. As I mentioned in a pervious post I placed a small order and had some difficulty with the cart. I contacted Rosa over Twitter and she figured out what the problem was. I hadn't even reached the six dollar minimum. HERPADERP. Rose was very patient with me and understanding of my...brain fart. When I opened my package I was really impressed by the care that went into it. Everything was inside a small paper envelope with a stamped rose on it. The free samples, plus a coupon and the invoice were in a separate plastic baggie from the samples I bought.
Laying out my samples I was impressed by the color array but annoyed at myself for picking such "easy" colors. My annoyance was over quickly once I started to actually use the eyeshadows. All of the colors except for the two free samples (Ares, the red color and Squash, the pumpkiny orange.) and Poseidon are from the NSFW collection. There are two colors that you can only get if you buy the whole collection and those colors are Traffiking (the yellow based orange.) and Dionysus (The true purple, aka my favorite.) Ocean Potion (A pretty blue with hints of teal in it.), Dollface (The nearly magenta pink.) and Gremlin (The monster green.) are all part of BRM's regular collection. I'm defiantly ordering again. I'm looking at Peacocky which could be the perfect peacock teal that I'm looking for. Mome Rath looks super pretty too! Gah!
What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
BRM e/s in Poseidon (A teal base with turquoise shimmer patted on the lid.)
BRM e/s in Dionysus (True purple used in the crease, beautiful to blend.)
BRM e/s in Dollface (Baby doll pink used over the wing to add more BAM!)
Estee Lauder e/s in Pink Ice (Frosty soft pink used to highlight.)
Almay Liquid eyeliner in black
Milani eyeliner in black

Morgana Cryptoria Lipstick in Valentine
Nyx Round Lipstick in Thalia (Used after the Valentine wore off.)

Do you guys stick to "safe" colors when you buy from new companies? I seem to have a lot of similar colors that I don't end up using because I have a favorite amongst those. I'm currently writing a Persephone Minerals review for all of you! Yay!


  1. Dionysus look aaaaaaaaawesome :D Love this look!

  2. Wow your look is just gorgeous, the blending is perfect! I've heard of Black Rose Minerals around a bit but never seen a proper review so thanks for your thoughts on them :)

  3. Wow, this is one of my favouritest looks of yours, mind if I steal? x

  4. Such pretty colors! I guess I haven't heard much of Black Rose Minerals. Thanks so much for sharing them with us. LOVE the look you did! But then again, I love all the looks you do!

  5. Love the look and love your typo - "I'm defiantly ordering again" - it fits with the colors !!

  6. Thanks for the review!! I'm happy you liked the colors! I really like the look and your blending is perfect. =D

  7. Such pretty colors! Great look!

  8. LOOOOOOOOVE. This is like my favourite colour combo on other people and myself :3 so damn pretty! I'll have to check out BRM once I can spend money on makeup again.

  9. Wow, this is fantastic! I'm impressed!

  10. I definitely tend to order pinks and purples most often from companies I haven't tried before. I need to break out of my comfort zone. Or maybe not, and just have an awesome pink and purple collection.

    This look is so pretty, too! Totally getting some BRM tomorrow, you enabler, you (and Heather)!
