Color Forms + Overrich Pigment Swatches and Review

Hi everyone! So I received all three of my pigment sample orders over the past 3 day weekend. Don't you just love it when there's package(s) waiting for you after a long day's work!?! Well I sure do. So I first opened my package from Debbie (Lushious Babe's Beauty Blog) it contained my pigment samples from the Color Forms and Overrich. Future posts of other pigment swatches:)

Blondes Gold (Overrich): I was kind of scared that this pigment wouldn't show well on my NC43 skintone but it actually makes a nice highlighter and inner corner pigment. Its name is a great explanation on the color.

Tea Time (Color Forms): A medium coco brown color with some gold shimmer to it. As you can see it kind of blends into my skintone.

Royal Flush (Color Forms): A nice orange-red color. It reminds me of the red side from Heat Element Mineraliza Eyeshadow from the 2006 Amuse Collection. I kind of wish it was a royal red ... like a ROYAL FLUSH!.

Mega Rich (Overrich): Love this color. My favorite from the whole bunch. Its a nice bronze-orange color. I wonder if it's a possible dupe for Firespot that I've been lemming for like EVER.

Circa Plum (Color Forms): A nice light purple. I think that this pigment is pretty similar to Illegal Cargo from Naughty Nauticals and Pearl of the Earth from the 2006 Holiday Eyeshadow Palette.

Antiqued Green (Overrich): This pigment is like a dirtier emerald green pigment and a less intense humid eyeshadow. An okay color...you can certainly find dupes for this.

Overall: Mac has certainly improve their pigment formulas. No chunky pigments in this batch (atleast from the colors that I ordered). My must haves are the Mega Rich and Blondes Gold. I know that I'm for sure going to order the regular jars of Mega Rich, Museum Bronze and Heritage Rouge. I purposely ordered pigment samples that I was on the fence about. I buy full jars of the ones I know I want!.

- P.S. Debbie's a great source to order pigment samples from...great communication and reasonable shipping considering the fact that its coming from the Netherlands! She even wrote a thank you note on the Hello Kitty little sample bag that held my Antiqued Green Pigment. She's out of pigment samples for these collections but she does have others for sale. Please check her out:)

Hope this helps you folks on your wish lists!
