I am back again with another indie shop review. This time I am reviewing an indie makeup company called Siren Song Cosmetics. I first heard about this shop when I ran across a thread on Reddit about what series or shows would we like to see makeup collections based off of. I had just recently finished Attack on Titan! and I was desperate for more!
For those of you who haven't succumbed to the Attack on Titan Frenzy the plot is basically 100 years before the series starts Titans appeared and started eating people with not reason or remorse and nearly wiped out all of humanity. The series starts where the remainder of humanity resides in peace behind giant walls to keep the Titans out. And from what you can see in the picture above you can piece together what happens next. There is currently only one season out (which is on Netflix) however if you want to read more you can find the manga.
So this series is SO amazing I had to have more and I wanted awesome Attack on Titan Makeup too. So I was directed to Siren Song Cosmetics by some amazing people on Reddit and I squealed and danced around like a school girl.

While swatches are always awesome to look at I always like to see how the shadows are used in looks to give me a better feel of them. So here are a couple of looks I did with Siren Song Cosmetics..
|Forgive the derp eye. I wanted to capture the shift of the colors here.|
Color and Pigmentation: 9.6 out of 10 bats
I have to say that I am really impressed with the color and pigmentation of Siren Song Cosmetics. Not only are the colors vibrant and gorgeous, they also apply and blend like a dream.
Shipping and Turn around Time: 10 out of 10 bats
I RARELY EVER give 10 out of 10 for anything since I hate seeing constant 10 out 10s. If you get a ten from me you worked for it and Dee definitely did. When I placed my order I got a mailing confirmation the NEXT day. Yup, you heard me right ONE DAY turn around. It doesn't get more epic than that.
Affordability: 9.7 out of 10 bats
Siren Song Cosmetics are extremely affordable. From samples in clam shells (yay for clam shells cause I hate baggies!) starting at $1.15 and full sized packed full jars at $5.49. Theses prices are fantastic and will make you come back for more.
Customer Service : 9.7 out of 10 bats
As I mentioned above I contacted Dee about my Thunderstruck looking slightly different from the color on the site. Monitors do alter color so I wanted to make sure. She was super quick and helpful to respond and honestly wonderful to work with.
Overall :9.8 out of 10 bats
|Run, don't walk over to Siren Song Cosmetics and pick up some fabulous shadows!|
