Femme Fatale Cosmetics Swatches and Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

I have another special treat for you all tonight!  I had the opportunity to swatch for Femme Fatale Cosmetics and this is actually my first experience with them!  I’ve heard amazing things about the brand, but everytime I saw a swatch that made my jaw drop (which was often) the color was sold out, and I kept missing restocks :(

I was sent 12 fabulous shades to review for Femme Fatale Cosmetics, so this post is fairly picture heavy – so be warned!  This post contains a lovely range of holographics as well as some glitter shades currently in her shop.  Make sure you check out the bottom of the post for the places where Femme Fatale Cosmetics are carried for purchasing information.

Lets kick this off with the glitters I was sent, and then we’ll move on to the holographics!

Mercury Rain

Mercury Rain

Mercury Rain is a clear base filled with fine and medium holographic particles with dot glitters in grey, black and silver in varying sizes.  I used 1 coat of Mercury Rain over Glitter Gal She’s Cactus.

Mercury Rain CU


Cold Wraith

Coldwraith is a deep blue jelly base, with hints of teal holo and flashes of purple.  I used 2 coats for this photo.

Chaotic Blaze

Chaotic Blaze

Chaotic Blaze was a surprise favorite for me!  This is a shade I NEVER reach for because it usually looks awful on me, but not this one!  Chaotic Blaze is a  a vibrant orange gold shimmering base filled with glitters in different shapes and sizes including gold stars, giant squares, yellow dots, neon hexes and orange glitters.  I used 3 thin coats for this photo and this shade glows!

Chaotic Blaze CU

Wickerman Embers

Wickerman Embers

Wickerman Embers is a rich burgundy red jelly base filled with copper, caramel, oranges, magenta and hints of black glitters.  I used 3 thin coats for this photo.

Wickerman Embers CU

Lunar Halo

Lunar Halo

Lunar Halo is another favorite.  Lunar Halo is a shimmering beige base filled with iridescent blue and green shimmers, and accents of silver glitter.  I used 3 thin coats for this photo, but it would also layer beautifully over a creme base of a similar color.

Lunar Halo CU

Next I’ll be showing you the holographic shades!  The first 2 photos will be in my normal lighting and the second set will be the same polish under artificial lighting.

Gravity Lapse

Gravity Lapse

Gravity Lapse is a grey linear holographic with a pink to green shift.  I used 2 coats for this photo

Overall, I am thrilled with this set of polishes!  I did need to be careful with a few of the glitters because they really are packed (which I love!) so thin coats are recommended.  All of the holographics contain a strong linear holographic and look amazing in most any lighting.

My Top Picks:  Void Shatter, Ruby Hare, Lunar Halo, Chaotic Blaze, Starfall and Burning Dusk

Price:  Prices range from $10.00 to $12.50
