In my stash: Espionage Cosmetics FPS-Collection.

Welcome to my first entry of "In my stash", where I will be posting a bit of information about items in my make-up collection. I personally love going through other peoples make-up stashes so thought I would share mine in this series!

Today it's all about Espionage Cosmetics FPS-Collection, so let's begin!

This collection is completely vegan and gluten free.
One of the shadows is lip safe and that's Headshot, which looks AMAZING over pinkish/chocolate/purple lips or even mixed with a bit of your favorite lipstick/lipgloss for a cool metallic effect!
(I will make a post about make-up/ingredients safety later this month because it's often forgotten or simply ignored. I ignore it on occasion for temporary lip art... I'm a baddie.)

Shadow breakdown: Left/Top part of my hand is just plain dry skin while there is primer on the right/bottom part of my hand just to show the difference, which isn't too big. I can't wear these without primer still as I have oily lids.

Respawn: A white based purple/blue (Lavender even?) iridescent shadow. It's not shimmery, it's just a glow and looks gorgeous over dark eye shadows, on the inner corners of a smokey eye, brow bone or even as a highlighter which I have been experimenting with a lot and I quite like it mixed with a tiny bit of whatever skincare I'm using for the day over my cheek bones and cupids bow just to add a bit of subtle magic. This is the only shadow I strongly recommend to use a primer with as it is difficult to get to stay on the skin in my experience.

Betrayal: A gorgeous green with golden shimmer. This makes it's way to my lids quite frequently.
It does look a bit matte when applied over primer but it will still keep the golden shimmer and really shows up in daylight or in flash photography, as seen in the second picture.

Double Kill: Beautiful shimmery metallic green. Can't go wrong with this one for a vibrant yet smokey eye. I'm a big fan of using it as an eyeliner and on my brows.

Headshot: What you see is what you get. An intense shimmery metallic copper which looks amazing on anyone. I love using this over half my lid with a matte black eyeliner.

A few pictures of me wearing shadows from the collection:

Picture 1: Wearing the whole collection, mixed Respawn with a bit of gloss for a beaming highlight along the cheek bones and brow bone. Also wearing that mix over the lips.

Picture 2: Wearing Betrayal around my eyes with a black base shadow over half the lid and using glitter as eyeliner.

Picture 3: Using Double Kill along the lashes and blended out over the lids and also used over the brows.

Plenty of pictures and complete descriptions with product details can be found on my Instagram @cynthiaiskillikill as well as a discount code in some of the posts if anyone feels like a little treat! ^^

Take care and see you around on social media!
Oh, and have an awesome week!
