Swatch Saturday: Naked Cosmetics Harvest Moon Collection

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

So I'm starting a series here on the BeautyJones: Swatch Saturdays

Other folks do this series, but I thought it would be a great exercise, since I had yet to swatch anything for you, my dear readers.

Turns out it takes practice and a lot of skill.  Had to do it once, and start all over again and then, wouldn'tcha know it, it's kinda overcast here in Lovely LAlaland, which never happens. But enough of my trials and tribulations, here's the star of our show...

Naked Cosmetics Harvest Moon Collection
Naked Cosmetics!!! 
Naked Cosmetics Gorgeous Display at The Makeup Show LA.
Harvest Moon is the third row from the bottom.
I bought this gorgeous stack of loose pigments at @TheMakeupShowLA, which is a wonderland, as I believe I have mentioned once or twice. @pursebuzz was there doing a talk about brushes with Crown Brushes, and she said these pigments were her favorites. Now, drumroll please, the swatches!

Inside in Low Light, but then adjusted by magic iPhoto pixies
This shot shows the basic colors pretty well. The upper row is on bare skin, and the lower row is on Urban Decay Primer Potion.

DUO CHROMES! How I love them. These have so many shades and change so nicely in the light. They are hypnotic. They go with my eyes, which means I now need to do a look using only these.

So here's a grid below. Naked Cosmetics so needs to name each shade. They must have spent tons of hours making these pigments gorgeous.  Just a few more hours, and, voila, some nice memorable names. Here are mine. They aren't necessarily the most awesome, but I would remember these. Maybe you would too!

Cheers, and Happy Saturday, Dear Readers!
