Victorian Disco has been closed for a little while, but is set to re-open (with a sale!) soon, so I thought it would be a good time to swatch the shadows that I have from VD in case anyone is interested in checking them out. Apologies in advance because I think a few of these were discontinued. Womp womp. Also can you tell I like neutrals? I like neutrals.
/FLEX: A peachy pink shimmer
Bro, Do You Even Lift?: A gorgeous light brownish taupe. One of my favorites. (Side note: I do, in fact, even lift, and have actually worked out at the “bro, do you even lift?” guy’s gym a few times. This shadow is pretty much the reason I checked out Victorian Disco to start with and I need a full-size.)
NOPENOPENOPE: A bright medium coppery orange.
#yolo: A sparkly golden olive.
Jockey!: Another light pink shimmer, less peachy than /FLEX.
Fallen Survivor: A purpley taupe.
Health Pack: A gorgeous light mauve. I’m kicking myself for not getting a larger size of this one, because I think it’s gone now.
Sacrifice: A dark eggplant purple with blue flash.
Dashing Doctor: A medium pinky taupe, or a dark pink champagne.
Dashing Doctor: A medium/dark chocolatey brown, on the cooler side.
Dalek Disco: A dark brown base with gold and copper shimmer. Reminiscent of Dalekanium, perhaps?
So Many Owls: A really pretty pink champagne. Slightly sheerer than most of the others.
Why Is It Always You Three?: A dirty coppery gold – kind of greenish, even? But also pinkish. A bit hard to describe.
Rowena: BAM bright blue with silver sparks. Ravenclaws Gone Wild.
The Great Lift: A medium brown taupe with green sparks.
The Dreamer: Another golden olive, similar to #yolo but less sparkly.
Kirin Tor: A medium reddish purple with a more satiny finish.
It’s A Trap!: A lighter medium copper, not as orange as NOPENOPENOPE.
The Force, Use It: A light seafoam green with pink shift.
Aaand that’s my entire Victorian Disco collection. In general I really like these shadows – the formula is good, and actually better over just primer than many others. It’s a very soft, “fluffy” shadow, which does equal more fallout, even with a sticky base – this doesn’t bother me, but it’s something to be aware of. I especially appreciate the wide range of neutrals that are offered, since I’m a wanton Neutrals Slut and can never have enough.
Victorian Disco should be back open in the next day or so, and I’ll definitely be checking out what’s new in the shop and picking up a few larger sizes of my favorite samples.
