BadBitchCosmetics swatches and review

I found BadBitchCosmetics years ago on Etsy before I had even begun exploring or hearing about indie companies. I ordered two shades from them, and loved them, but never ordered from them again until recently. They have fantastic shades ranging from metallic and neon. All of the jars came with a sticker around it with the name and ingredients, but they also had the name on the bottom of the container. The colors are based off of women that the owner finds influential, or bad bitches. I purchased on January 23rd, it was shipped out on the 26th, and received it the 31st. The only time I contacted the owner was to find out when the shop re-opened, she was very friendly and professional! All swatches are on bare skin with no primer

Nana is a beautiful dark dark gray/blue with red glitter in it (you can see a little in the picture of the sifter) It goes on beautifully and blends out, perfect for liner of to darken up a crease a little to shift to an edgier of night look. When you blend it out, the glitter doesn't appear anymore, but would show up really well against a glitter glue like Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy. I ended up mixing this with my Inglot Duraline to create a liquid liner for the look posted later at the end of this post.

Hotaru is a great metallic purple shade. It has a bit of a grey under shade to it, but that seems to help bring out the beauty of the color. This color is great for all over the lid, or an accent color in the inner corner of the eye, or as a bottom smokey liner. It blends very well, and the metallic shimmer stays with it when it blends. 

Medusa is a beautiful metallic green. When spread out it appears more as a mossy gold color. It has a beautiful shine to it, and works great as a base color or to add a little shimmer to a look. It also blends very well, and the metallic shimmer stays with it when it blends. 

Lil Kim:
Lil Kim is an awesome bright purple, very matte and blends very well, but stays true to the color. This color works great for a little pop of color and also for an all over bright eyeshadow look. This is definitely a color I would wear everyday, but I'm kinda a bright colors person anyway.

Holy bright pink, batman! This color is labeled as Not Safe For Eyes due to FDA regulations, but I'm a risk taker and put it on my eyes anyway. The site has this listed as a blush, but it comes in the smaller containers, and also has a warning on the listing and on the jar. This color is also very matte, and blends well. It's not as bright on the skin as it is in the jar, but it's still pretty bright!

Trina and B-Kiddo:
These are both fantastic shades that I got when I first ordered a few years ago, and I still have them. I haven't noticed anything weird about them, even though they have been sitting in my drawer quite a bit. Trina is a beautiful super duper metallic, as you can tell from the picture. I've never run across a shadow quit like it. It goes on amazing and stays bright and shimmery all day. B-Kiddo is a great light but bright green. Has a lot of shimmer to it, so make sure you tap out your brush before apply it, it's fantastic.
