Corvus Cosmetics Major Arcana Collection Swatches and Review!

Corvus Cosmetics recently released a 22 eyeshadow collection based on Tarot's Major Arcana!  I recently bought Welcome to Night Vale's Tarot deck and put the corresponding cards next to their eyeshadows.  I've been interested in Tarot since I was young but never got into it, so this was a pretty good stepping stone into actually learning.  I also recently became an official promoter for Corvus, which means they send me products to swatch, review, and/or create looks.  All of these samples were sent to me for free, but all of my opinions will be honest like always.  You all know even if I didn't get this for free, I would've bought them in a heartbeat ;)  Corvus has one of my absolute favorite eyeshadow formulas and the owner, Noel, constantly comes out with beautiful colors.

This post will only show swatches of the colors; I've created a few eye looks using the shades and those are posted onto my Facebook page here!  Follow that page for FotDs, EotDs, and blog updates :)

Pictures taken under LED bulb and swatched over ELF Glitter Primer (top/left half) and ELF Essential Primer (bottom/right half)

The Fool
The Fool:  white with silver and red shimmers

Judgement:  pale yellow with gold and red shimmers

The Lovers
The Lovers:  ballerina pink with gold shimmer

The Devil
The Devil:  satin nude.  This is actually a better nude/blending shade for me than Skinwalker is because it's slightly darker.  I remember this being one of the standouts while swatching because of the color, blendability, and pigmentation.

Justice:  greige base with gold sparkles

Temperance:  chartreuse with gold sparkles

The Empress
The Empress:  pink with blue sparkles

The Chariot
The Chariot:  gold with gold sparkles

Wheel of Fortune
The Wheel of Fortune:  dark orange with gold sparkles and red shimmers

The Tower
The Tower:  satin khaki with gold shimmers

The World
The World:  aquamarine with blue and gold shimmers

The High Priestess
The High Priestess:  purple with red shimmers

Strength:  beautiful pomegranate with gold sparkles and red shimmers

The Magician
The Magician:  beautiful deep red with red shimmers

The Hanged Man
The Hanged Man:  dark brown with red and gold shimmers

The Hierophant
The Hierophant:  beautiful deep green with blue shimmers.  This is the sort of color I would expect a majestic dragon to sport ♥  

The Star
The Star:  beautiful ocean blue with gold and red shimmers .  This is quite possibly my favorite color out of the collection.  I'm not sure why it captured me as much as it did, but I find the combination of base shade and shimmers very unique.  It's also stunningly silky and works well over a regular non-sticky primer.  Maybe it reminds me a little bit of Van Gogh's Starry Night and that's why I absolutely love it to death.

The Moon
The Moon:  blue with silver shimmers.  I really love this color as well!  I think Noel does a really good job with finding a balance between the color to shimmer ratio, neither overtake the other but blend together to produce a really beautiful effect.  I also love how it does remind me of the moon and matches my card colors.

The Hermit
The Hermit:  charcoal with silver sparkles and shimmers

Death:  satin brown black with red shimmers.  I've been using this as an outer corner shade to deepen some eye looks and really enjoy it!

Overall, I absolutely love this collection and the eyeshadow formula!  Since Noel perfected her formula a long time ago, I know I can expect good eyeshadows no matter the shade.  It's also nice that this collection features several different finishes ranging from satin to shimmery.  A few standouts for me were The Devil, Justice, Strength, The Emperor, The Hierophant, The Star, and The Moon.  I know that's a good amount of standouts, but the collection is quite large!  The Major Arcana collection is a seasonal collection that's available from September through April.  Since it was recently released, it might be available or a bit longer, but I strongly recommend buying if you see anything you might like!
