AFK Cosmetics Round Table Collection Swatches

I'm excited to bring you swatches of AFK Cosmetics' newest collection - Round Table!  It's inspired by the film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  I'm a huge Arthurian buff; I had to watch it in high school and really loved it!  My fiance purchased this set for me as an anniversary gift and I had to get the full size for the adorable labels.  The label artwork were all hand drawn by the owner and match the movie references really well.  I recently rewatched the movie just to get caught up with everything.

Awesome snowman drawing; thanks Dena!

Overall, I really love everything about the Round Table collection!  From the adorable label art, to beautiful eyeshadows, to wonderful mousse-like glosses.  Everything was nicely pigmented, comfortable, and followed the theme well.  I've been excited for this collection ever since AFK snuck a peek of it a few months ago and it did not disappoint.  I look forward to more awesome collections from them!
