Let the Victorian Disco Swatching Spree Begin


If I could make my own line of make up, I would probably name all of my shadows and lippies after Art History type things, like Manet paintings. Or I would name them after Star Wars. What is that you say? There is already someone who does that?

Yes folks, my dream has come true in Victorian Disco Cosmetics.

When I found out about them, I had to place an order instantly. I ordered almost every "Star Wars" themed shade, although the company does not have the rights to the films or anything of that sort.

They arrived like this...

How cute is that? They shipped very fast and I ordered little sample baggies to try everything out. I am so excited to bring you these swatches!

I will be breaking these posts up by color theme so as not to drown you in pretty. :)

The four I will show you today are "Youngling" "Forest Moon" "R2" and "Lightsaber" They are gorgeous greens, blues, and purples. The cool range.

Youngling is a wonderful lilac color. It has all the innocence of a young padawan learner with a little bit of shimmer.

Is this not amazing? Just a little goes a long way, the consistency is so smooth and buttery for a loose powder and it blends like a dream. I am in love already.

I wanted to post a picture of what inspired each shadow. Just because I love Star Wars that much. It is a disease.

With only a little bit of the sample baggie, the shadow is nice and opaque in one swatch. I love the cool tones of this.

See the other three after the jump!

Forest Moon is a gorgeous light green. It is slightly minty which is really on-trend and fresh for summer.

The micro-gold shimmer is amazing in this shadow, warming it up just a bit. Once again the payoff is amazing.

Endor!! I can definitely see the inspiration here.

Is this not so absolutely stunning. I promise I am not endorsed here, just really impressed!

Lightsaber is a rich, matte cobalt. I was very interested to see how this would perform against other mattes I have tried lately.

I am not blown away by it,  but it performs much better than most with just a little bit of product. Although it blends into the skin, the vibrancy is kept.

It looks just like Luke's lightsaber! Yay!

Here you can see how it fades into the skin once you blend it, but it is still a cool color. My least fave of the group though.

R2 is the last shadow I have for you in this post. It is a pretty, shimmery, medium blue.

The depth and shimmer to this is lovely. I would use this as a wash of color all over my lid. I don't care if it would look bad or totally 80's. It is so cool.

Oh R2, love that little mischievous droid!

Well this concludes the first bout of epic Victorian Disco swatches. More to come! And looks too!

Final Thoughts:

  1. If you order full sizes do they come in pots? I think the only one of these I'd wear is Youngling, although they're all very pretty colors. And, the only reason I bought MAC's Naked Lunch was because of Le dejeuner sur l'herbe.

    1. Yep Mollie, you can get them in full sized jars ($4.50) or mini jars ($2) and they come labeled with sticers. They are so pretty! Haha, I bought Naked Lunch for the same exact reason.

  2. These are quite pretty! I love great themes in makeup, too, haha.

    1. Yes they are! I am a total sucker for themed stuff!

  3. hahahah epiccc. I'm LOVING Forest Moon too, you must use that in an FOTD soon :)

    Also, really wish someone would do an Art History themed collection haha.

  4. You got it! And yeah, I am always hoping for Art History make up. I can think of so many color/name combos. I would buy ALL THE THINGS :)

  5. That's simply stunning! I ordered some pieces last week and I'm really looking forward! I'm a big fan of Star Wars, so it's must-have for me :))

    1. I love and adore Star Wars as well, I really hope you like what you ordered. I LOVE VD Cosmetics
