Darling Girl: First thoughts

I received my order from Darling Girl Cosmetics today! This is my first purchase with DG, so I was very excited to recieve it and get swatching. I placed an order a few weeks ago, when the TAT was 10-12 days. My order was shipped after 12 days. Everything was well packaged; my purchases were wrapped in the pretty pink paper, and a couple of sweet freebies/GWP's in the other!
I've been checking out the Facebook page every now and then, as Susan posts upcoming & new product photos regularly. I've asked a few questions on the page, and she has always been very quick to respond. I highly recommend giving DG a try! I plan on ordering some of her glosses on my next order.

Free gifts! The GWP blush is a very generous size as well.

My complete purchase. The mini jars, or Petits as they are called by DG, are 2.00, and the samples were .60 each! Their prices are very affordable, even with the recent announcement of an *slight* increase. The prices are very competitive, with sample portions being more than Meow's 1/6 tsp size, at less cost.

Now onto my swatches!

Chococat, Badtz Maru, My melody, Princess Peach & Falling Leaves

Deery Lou, REM, Dreamcatcher, Mr. Ed, Mustang

Atlantis, Plum Blossoms, Purin, Dapple

Fantasia (blush), Dancerta, Innocence, Seabiscuit, Saddle up

I can't wait to try out the Fantasia blush, it looks like a very interesting duochrome and it blended well on my hand. I will be needing full sizes of Plum Blossoms, Falling Leaves, Purin & Mustang. They are all very interesting, unique shades, which I can't wait to show you in upcoming FOTDS.


  1. So many great colors! I love Darling Girl! Mustang is so pretty and I'm pretty sure everyone needs the Fantasia blush!

  2. Chocoat and Mustang are two of my faves... I realy like the look of Falling Leaves. Fantasia is also amazing... lol, I love Darling Girl! If you do get glosses, you need Gold Finger!

  3. Fantasia and Innocence look amazing! I second Robyn in that you need to try Goldfinger gloss - it's beautiful!

  4. Looks like you got some lovely colours!

  5. Thanks guys!
    I ended up placing another order last night, to try out some of the newer shades. Ever since seeing Susan's swatches & FOTD with Luxe and Dark Ember, I've been wanting to get my hands on those. I did pick up Goldfinger also!
