Dawn Eyes Cosmetics Christmas 2012 - Winter Wonderland and other Remnant Swatches!

Awhile back, Dawn Eyes Cosmetics updated their website and successfully transferred over all of their previous collections.  This includes their Remnants section, which consists of shades that were leftover from previous collections that had been discontinued.  The Remnant shades only come in full sizes, but Dawn was very nice and let me purchase samples.  I'm so glad she did because I fell in love with several shades and purchased full sizes!

Pillow Talk
Pillow Talk:  champagne pink with gold sparkles.  I fell in love with this one and the few after it and purchased a full size.

Keepsake:  pink copper with gold sparkles 

Darko:  rose gold with gold sparkles.  I bought a full size of this one since I can't get enough of rose golds and similar ones in the color family!

Morning Dove
Morning Dove:  pink mauve with gold sparkles.  Yup, got a full size of this too.  Honestly, I don't even know if I'll be able to use up the sample sizes, let alone full sizes.  However, I know once the Remnant colors sell out, they're gone, so I wanted to make sure I had backups :x

Sweetheart:  brown with gold sheen and red sparkles

Undeniable Beauty

Perfect Knight
Perfect Knight:  gray base with pink sparkles and green shimmers.  I also got a full size of this even though it's not a shade I'd normally gravitate towards.  I think it was unique enough to my collection that I needed it.

As usual, I really like Dawn Eyes' eyeshadow formula.  There are definitely some gems within the Remnants section and I really recommend taking a look before they disappear.  There are a lot of purples in that section that weren't showcased on my blog because I don't like purples, but I know many do.  Dawn Eyes Cosmetics has really great prices as well as a really fast TAT.  Samples are $0.75 and full sizes are $4 with some exceptions including the Remnants, Spearl Mattes, and Kate's Colors.  The prices are still very affordable and I believe there's a collection that can appeal to everyone.
