MTcoffinz alternative clothing Make up Review

If any of you know me well enough, you know that I LOVE makeup. For years though, I have been loyal to one makeup company. I have been cheating on them with MTcoffinz! For now, they only have a growing eye shadow line and a shadow primer but so far its fabulous!

My first order was split between my mom and I and this is my portion:
as you can see, in each box came these lil quotes that are actually stickers! because our order was over 4 shadows, we had a lil gift..a makeup bag!
My recent order...I love the personalized note on the box!

Makeup is so hard to buy online with no actual swatch to compare and even then, colors can be altered due to computer screens, lighting etc. I have provided a swatch "chart" for your comparison. Please note, I am Asian mix so my skin tends to be more olive than pale. I did the swatches on my inner arm where I had more room(no tattoos :D) and where the skin was more natural in color:
The top line is with the primer and the lower line is without.
colors from left to right:
Charisma, Acid Reign, Rumor, Afterburner, Wicked, Nemesis, Medusa, Wormwood, Fallen and Nocturne
As you can see, the primer makes the colors pop that much more and allows for all day lasting. While each pot comes with its own foam touch up brush, I have yet to use it.

I also wanted to show you the blending abilities. On the inside of my forearm, I did a "patch" of a mock left eye

 Primer first, inner-wormwood, center-Medusa, outer-Nocturne, liner-Nocturne
This look was done: inner:Acid Reign, center:Charisma, outer:Fallen, liner:Nocturne

Why am I using shadow for liner you ask? It blends and stays better in my opinion. I use an angle brush that is slightly damp and apply the shadow. I don't have a problem with it smearing or getting tacky and leaving a mark on my upper lid.

here are the colors for the above look. This photo also shows the little brush that EACH pot comes with!!!
As mentioned in the beginning of this post, I have been a loyal makeup user of one big name brand of makeup. If the colors and quality weren't enough of a draw, here is another reason that I will be buying MTcoffinz makeup:
Here you can see the size difference. The center one, is the brand I have bought for years. As you can see, the pots are alot bigger with MTcoffinz AND they cost less! With the latest order, I even received a credit back for an overpayment in shipping! Was so awesome!

If you are interested in purchasing your very own MTcoffinz makeup, please visit the website!  For a list of ingredients used in their makeup please visit this link.  There are often sales! Make sure to also "like" them on facebook.  and to check out their Etsy shop!

I hope you have enjoyed this review and found it helpful. I shall keep you updated on further purchases :)
