Victorian Disco Cosmetics: Sailor Moon Collection Eyeshadow Swatches

What first brought me to Victorian Disco Cosmetics was Pink Sith's post on her Star Wars collection of eye shadow pigments. Although I'm not a Star Wars fan myself (don't hate me!), I have many friends who are, so had to share it with them! I of course checked out what else Smashley has to offer at Victorian Disco Cosmetics shop on Etsy.

That's when I saw it: Sailor Moon Collection (called Sailor Scouts Collection on website)!! OMG! I love Sailor Moon. I mean, seriously love it. I mean I own all the manga in Japanese (regular & deluxe) and in French (regular). I have all 200 episodes of the anime. I've even watched a bunch of the live action stuff, as this manga and anime holds such a soft spot in my heart. So I had to swatch all of the Sailor Scouts Collection and share it with you!

All swatches have been applied with UDPP as a base, if you apply wet, many of these colours are even more vibrant. 




Sailor Moon
True golden color with gold flecks and sheen
Lip-safe and Vegan

This is a shimmery gold with sparkles and I love it. It's so beautiful. It's a colour I really adore for eye shadows.








Sailor Mercury
Bright royal blue with blue and red flecks
Vegan, but not lip-safe

Lovely royal blue as described with blue and red shimmer. Gorgeous! 






Sailor Mars
Rusty red with a pink sheen
Lip-safe and vegan

 This comes off more a pinky red than a red red to me. It has subtle pink shimmer which is nice. It's a lovely colour, but I often find this shade hard to pull off personally as an eye shadow. I'm curious to see this as a lip colour, and think it might be more suitable for my lips than my eyes, but haven't tried it yet. 






Sailor Jupiter
Bright lime green with gold flecks
Lip-safe and vegan


Lime green, definitely! A touch frosty on me.






Sailor Venus
Bright golden orange with a slight pink sheen
Lip-safe and vegan

Bright orange, kinda frosty. Very pigmented.








Tuxedo Mask
Deep reddish black with purple and gold sheen
Lip-safe and vegan


OMG, love this colour! It comes out more of a dark purple on me and is super shimmery. I love it!  The multicolour shimmer is a-mazing. It's also very well pigmented. I can only image how dark it goes when applied wet!





Rini 
Light baby pink with a pink sheen and gold sparkles
Vegan, but not lip-safe

 A frosty light pink, lovely just like Small Lady. It's a Pink Sugar Heart Attack.






Artemis
Bright silvery white with a gold sheen
Vegan, but not lip-safe

Lovely silver, although I can't really see the gold sheen. Looks like a frosty silver with shimmer to me.

Diana
Bright blue based pink with a light purple sheen
Lip-safe and vegan

I'd describe it as a magenta or a berry with a bright pink sparkle. Very bright.


Luna
Deep strong black with a very prominent gold sheen and sparkles
Lip-safe and vegan

Applied wet maybe it looks black, but I found it to apply with primer as a dark charcoal grey with sparkles. Love it. Can't wait to wear it.





Sailor Pluto
Deep teal green with purple reflects
Vegan, but not lip-safe

This is a lovely colour. I really do love the shimmer and the reflects in this colour. I have trouble wearing this sort of colour on my eyes, so I probably won't order it, but it's so beautiful I'm still tempted.




Sailor Neptune
Bright teal with purple reflects
Vegan but not lip-safe

A lovely light aqua with violet shimmer. Beautiful shade.





Sailor Uranus
Bright bright yellow with yellow sparkles
Lip-safe and vegan

Yes, bright is repeated twice in the colour description, and this is such a bright yellow! It's very strongly pigmented and a true yellow. If you're looking for a true and bright yellow, this would be perfect!





Sailor Saturn
Bright purple with red undertones and red flecks
Vegan, but not lip-safe

A lovely colour, although I would describe it more as a light purple or a lilac. It's very soft. I do really like it though. I particularly love the reddish sparkles.

My favourites from the collection?

Tuxedo Mask is amazing! I also love Sailor Moon, Rini, and Luna. These are colours that I wear, so I'm biased. I also want to mention Sailor Pluto, as it's amazing, but teal isn't really my thing on eyes. Sailor Saturn is also beautiful.

Smashley is a smart business woman and has just released some Final Fantasy colours as well! I've heard she's working on something else equally if not more, amazing which I'm sure I'll be posting about when it's released! Actually, I've already ordered a couple of full size Final Fantasy inspired colours, so I'll definitely swatch them. Victorian Disco Cosmetics is the perfect match for a geek girl who loves makeup! I can't wait to dive into these colours and start wearing them!

You can find Victorian Disco Cosmetics on Etsy and full size pigments are $4.50 USD, with sample bags or jars available for all colours.

  2. Those are amazing colors! I got the Millennium Falcon and The Fett from her, and I LOVE them. They've got amazing staying power (especially if you apply on top of a base) and they look awesome.

    Great review!
