I managed to get my camera working enough for swatches, which is good since I have 6 Morgana Cryptoria (renamed, revamped Morgana Minerals) lippies to show you - and a good majority of them are new colours! I've already rhapsodised about the moisturising qualities, stunning opacity and longevity of these. So without further ado:
Brilliant aqua blue. I love this so much - because of the name and the colour. I took about a million photos of this because I didn't want to take it off!
Metallic, gorgeous dark green.
Frosty light pink. I can't see myself wearing this often. It's nice but it's definitely not me.
Neutral, deep, muted reddish-pink creme with a faint flush of purpley-pink iridescence. If you don't like bright/deep colours, or you need something conservative for work, GET THIS. It's so gorgeous, understated yet beautiful, neutral - I can't imagine this not looking good on any age or skin tone. I don't like pinks at all, but this is such a lovely soft, unique red-pink. I can see myself wearing this to work very often.
Bright red packed with red, gold and pink glitter - NOT gritty at all! Doesn't give you disco ball lips, but the glitter is noticeable.
Rubbed down on my hand to show the glitterrrrrr.
Heavenly deep, metallic purple with a hint of blue sparkle.
Morgana is coming out with a pastel collection soon. I want to try and and all of the purples. I also would really like to try Rosy Plum, as Apple Plum is a little darker on me than I was expecting. Can I just say: get Serenity NOW before it's all sold out!
I also discovered on my computer two swatches of Morgana's limited edition shadows which I totally forgot I was going to post about. The limited edition shades don't have names, just numbers. I got #1, "robin's egg blue with blue green sparkle and color shifting violet" and #18, "sage with violet sparkles".
Unfortunately these complex colours are hard to photograph. #18 is a much more mossy green, and the sparkles don't look as gold in person. The shimmers in #1 don't really show up in indoor light; this shade needs sunlight to really blossom.
I did get a tube of Morgana's infamous black lipstick, Licorice, but the heat did something to it and it's gone all funny. I told Melissa right away and she's making a new batch and sending me a replacement. I offered to pay shipping but she wouldn't have any of it. Now THAT is customer service.
