Beauty from the Earth’s Bite Me Halloween 2012 kit

I just recently got heavily into Beauty from the Earth (I totally blame cultoftaupe) - and I got on board just in time for the release of their 2012 Halloween kit! The first 100 available for pre-sale included a put of lip gloss along with the five eyeshadows. There are three colors that can be used as “smokey eye” shades, one medium-bright warm clear red, and one pale-but-not translucent cream-gold that works excellently as a highlighter or as an all-over color, to contrast with the three darker shades. It’s largely a palette of neutrals, with one clear red and a softened medium violet as counterpoints. No orange in sight, and not the “traditional” autumnal palette - it’s a touch elegant, a touch ostentatious, but not full-on vampy. Even if you’re less fond of the rich blues and greens in BFTE’s inventory and stick with pinks, purples, and browns, the Bite Me kit’s shades are wearable just about any time of the year, by just about anyone.

My favorite colors from this collection are Full Moon Rising and Sinister Instincts - but I've only swatched the colors quickly thus far, I haven't had the chance yet to wear any of them. All of the colors are attractive, and the color payoff is fairly good. I think that's one of the things about Full Moon Rising that I like: yes, it can be used as a highlighter; but that doesn't mean that it's useless otherwise. It isn't translucent, or even semisheer. It actually has heft to it.

This kit included:

  • Dark Prince — dusty violet shimmer
  • Full Moon Rising — soft cream-gold shimmer
  • Guilty Pleasures — medium-deep gold-brown sparkle
  • Sinister Instincts — dark grey sparkle
  • Some Girls Bite — warm red shimmer
