The New New York Collection: Black Rose Minerals

OK. I had to have these eyeshadows from Black Rose Minerals when I saw the name. Futurama is one of my favorite shows. A few years ago at Comic Con San Diego I had the amazing pleasure to watch the entire cast of Futurama do a read-through of a script. It was absolutely amazing to see all the actors in person, reading in the voices they use for the show.

All I can say is wow! These colors are so pretty and bright. As I'm sure you know (if you regularly read my blog) I'm not one for "neutrals". This collection is perfect.

Some favorites: Fry is gorgous. A bright orange with little flecks of red glitter. Absolutely stunning. Zoidberg is amazing too, bright orangy pink with a purple shift. Leela is a great super bright purple. I guess my least favorite was Hermes which is a dark forest green matte. As a stand alone color is is beautiful, I just didn't feel it went with the other 7. 

I love how each of these colors perfectly corresponds to their character in the show. Black Rose Minerals was SPOT ON with the color/character match up. :)

I really don't have anything bad to say about these. They were really bright, very blendable, the package arrived on time and nicely wrapped. This was a great first impression and I will be purchasing more.

Do you have any "must have" colors from them?

Thanks for reading!
