01.22.15 - Blackbird Cosmetics Vol 1 & Vol 2

 Awhile ago, I purchased from Blackbird Cosmetics and only purchased the Vol. 1 samples. When Maleah came out with Vol. 2; I had to have them. At this time, she also had a sale so I purchased all the full sizes. I. also, believe this is the new formulation too.

Everything is swatched over UDPP and under an LED light.

I set up the swatches in pairs of similar colors. I thought it would be easier to see what the differences were between similar shades.

---------------

I believe that Blackbird Cosmetics has an amazing texture and formula for the mattes. The formula is definitely better than the previous version. Some colors applied a little patchier than the others but most of them are amazingly creamy and smooth. The formula, I feel, is better than the previous version.
