In the pursuit of Fabulous: Review of Wonderland Beauty Cosmetics

*Press Sample*
Hello Lovelies!
   I am back again with another makeup review of an indie company called Wonderland Beauty Cosmetics.  Michelle, the owner, contacted me of Facebook and asked if I was interested in doing a review of her cosmetics. She was sweet enough to allow me to pick out some colors and even offered up one of her new vegan lip balms as well and I was thrilled! (Cause I have become a serious lip balm addict recently, I just cant get enough of them). So after around a week from chatting with Michelle my package of goodies arrived..
Check out the cute top hat image on her logo! Love it!
These were the colors that I chose... (All colors were swatched over Lunatick Cosmetic Lab's Primer and in sunlight)
 Dance Magic Dance is listed as a shimmery grey toned purple with lots of silver sparkles. I was a nice dark purple with dark grey (almost black) base with silver shimmers. It is a gorgeous color and I constantly am singing the song from Labyrinth every time I look at this name.
 Dearly Departed is a black with purple and red undertones and red sparkles.  This is one of my favorites due to the combination of the purple and red undertones. It gives the color a lot of depth.
 Hello Sweetie is  a light purplish pink color which is almost matte. There is a slight hint of sparkle but it is straight and to the point. It is lighter than Tangle
 Mermaid is what I would consider a dark sea foam green with a hint of blue with gold sparkles.

 Mermaid's Tears is listed as shimmery blue with a green/yellow duochrome  and lots of sparkles. It is s nice medium blue with the green/yellow shift.  This was another one of my favorites due to the depth of the shadow with the duochrome.

 Morpheus is a lovely black shadow with a ton of blue shimmer which reminds me of the Dream King. While I am not sure if it is named in honor of Gaiman's character it does make me think of him.
 Tangle is listed as a shimmery pink with a purple duochrome shift. The pink and the purple make a lovely color almost creating a nice pink/purple hybrid without being too much of one or the other.It reminds me of my daughter's Rapunzel pjs that she loves to dance around like a princess. It
Unicorns is listed as a mid toned blue that has turquoise, purple/pinkish highlights, and purple,blue, and aqua highlights. This is more of a blue base colors over Mermaid's Tears which seems to have a hint more green. 

I also chose the Watermelon Vegan Lipbalm which is softer lip balm that glides over your lips and is extremely moisturizing. The watermelon scent was light and natural and strong and candy like. I was really pleased with it. 

I always like to see shadows on a person as well in reviews so now on to the looks!

Color and Pigmentation 9 out of 10 bats
   I have to say that while some people may be a little weary of a new indie company I was pleasantly pleased with Wonderland Beauty Cosmetics. The colors that I received were well mixed, bright and vibrant. The shadows lasted all day in sweltering Florida heat and humidity without an issue. 

Shipping and Turn Around Time (not Rated)
  Since I didn't order anything from WBC I don't think that it is fair for me to give a rating. When I order from Wonderland Beauty I will update this rating and the overall. 

Affordability 9.6 out 10 bats
   Wonderland Cosmetics offers two sizes for her shadows the "sample" which is a very large bag with over 1/4 a tsp for $1.30 and the full size which runs 2.7-3 grams for $3.25 and her balms are $2.30 which is a great deal. You can pick up good deal of colors without breaking the bank and that is wonderful things especially when you are on a tight budget. 

Customer Service 9 out of 10 bats
   Michelle was really lovely. She was extremely prompt and professional in dealing with any questions that I had about her products.

Overall 9.3 out of 10 bats
    Wonderland Beauty Cosmetics is a lovely new indie company on the scene. I was pleased with the products that I was given to review.While she doesn't have a large selection of colors, which is common for new indie companies, I look forward to see what color creations she will think of next and with her prices anyone can afford to pick up some new shadows without having to worry if they are going to have pinch pennies for everything else.  You can find Wonderland Beauty Cosmetics on Esty and on Facebook

Hope that you enjoyed this review and until next time lovelies!
