Madd Style Cosmetics: Halloween Grab Bag Swatches!

Okay, first off.. I just wanted to say....

...okay, so this probably isn't news for most of you ;) 
(but this was my first order since the logo change, so I'm pretty excited!)

Now that I've gotten that off of my chest, let's take a look at the latest grab bag from MSC! Released on October 27th, just in time for Halloween, and in very limited supply - the grab bags contained:
  • THREE all new, full-sized eyeshadows: Wolfsbane, The Bride, and Frankenberry
  • A brand new and full-sized (mango butter base) lip balm: Spiced Pumpkin Cupcake
  • Fright Night Glitz: a glitter pack with a combo of orange, black, holo, and gold glitter
  • Additional grab bag goodies: MSC Sticker (with new logo), two Halloween themed MSC buttons, deluxe sample of "Fan Girl" (the new matte blush, not yet released), and deluxe sample of a new (not yet released) Doctor Who matte eyeshadow "Are You My Mummy?"

Here's a better look at the contents:
Everything was neatly packaged in the cute little pumpkin bag (well, aside from 'Space Oddity' in the lower right hand corner - 'Space Oddity' was not a part of the Halloween grab bag but actually a discontinued color I added on to my order!) :)

...Swatch time! Swatches were done over NYX JEP in Milk (Fright Night Glitz was patted on over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy, Fan Girl blush was swiped over bare skin). All are photographed in natural lighting outdoors. Descriptions of each color are taken from the original listing of the product.

(WOLFSBANE: black with orange glitter.)
Very hard to capture all of the beautiful glitz this color has!

(THE BRIDE: Similar to the effect of Raven Feathers from the twisted wonderland collection, The Bride has a black base that changes from lime green to blue to emerald in the light. In low light it changes from a dark blue-green to a deep rose and plum.)
Absolutely stunning color-changing magic ;)

(FRANKENBERRY: a cool-toned, semi-translucent pink with aqua sparkles. Makes a gorgeous highlight color for eyes, face and body! You can also build up the color for a more opaque look.)
This color is very light and pretty, perfect for highlighting! I did build up the color a bit more for this swatch, and my camera did NOT want to focus on those gorgeous aqua sparklies :/

(FRIGHT NIGHT GLITZ glitter pack - combo of orange, black, holo, and gold glitter.)
Basically.. lots more gorgeous glitz my camera doesn't like to pick up ;)

(ARE YOU MY MUMMY?: New unreleased Doctor Who matte.)
This color is a pretty light grey with a purplish twist :)

(FAN GIRL: New unreleased matte blush.)
This was just one swipe on the back of my hand, very pretty and subtle - color can be built up. Also PLEASE note that this color is NOT eye safe!

That about sums up the grab bag swatches I have for you. I also wanted to let you all know that a little bird might've whispered something in my ear about the grab bag colors being added to the permanent line! However, you'll have to wait to purchase them until around the holidays ;) stay tuned! <3

&One last thing - I wanted to go ahead and add a quick swatch of 'Space Oddity' as well - because, well, you can STILL grab this color. Run over to the MSC shop and grab one before they're gone forever! 

(SPACE ODDITY: is a deep navy with silver sparkle. It's out of this world!)

FTC: These items were paid for by myself/by my boyfriend. I am not being compensated to write this post, these are my honest opinions on the products and company. Descriptions of each eyeshadow/glitter/blush (underneath swatch photos) were copied directly from the listing of the product. All photos were taken by me in natural lighting, are unaltered aside from cropping/collaging! I AM a model for Madd Style Cosmetics at this time, but it does not change my opinions on the products themselves or the company<3


  1. I love the elaborate swatches! I'd like to give you a blog award, so feel free to join in if you feel like it :)

    1. Thank you so much! Your comment totally made my day :D

  3. It wouldn't let me edit my post, so I deleted it :p Anyway I was wondering if their Fan Girl blush is sort of like Illamasqua's in Katie if you've seen it? I can only go off of online photos, and it isn't super easy to determine their true shades & compare/contrast.

    Thank you :D
