Detrivore Loose Eyeshadow Singles Swatches

Detrivore loose eyeshadow singles are loose powder eyeshadows that come in a variety of colors and finishes, but are largely known for matte finishes. The shadows come in two sizes: 2.0 g in a plastic jar (no sifter) and ~1/8 teaspoon in a sample bag. Unlike many other indie brands, these shadows do not come in a mini size jar. The full sized jar retails for $6.50USD, and the sample bag retails for $1.00USD. Detrivore eyeshadows are distributed through Shiro Cosmetics and can be purchased on their website as well as through other indie makeup boutiques.

Detrivore eyeshadows perform fairly well on bare skin. As always, though, they tend to last longer over primer. Glitter primer is definitely not necessary for their shadows, and, for the matte shades, will actually hinder performance and make them patchy.

Most of Detrivore’s eyeshadows are sold within a collection. While the entire collection of eyeshadows can be purchased all at once (often for a reduced price), all shadows can be purchased individually. Swatches are listed in alphabetical order under their over arching collection.


The Blood Countess Collection

A collection inspired by the life of Elizabeth Bathory of Hungary, infamously known as the “Blood Countess”. Also a collaboration with Shiro Cosmetics.


The Red Gallows

The Red Gallows is a wine red with a matte finish. Swatched on eyelid over bare skin without primer. This color is more of a blackened red without the brown tone that many muted reds have. It’s very similar to the color of a Cabernet or Merlot wine. The color shows up equally well on bare skin or primer.

Swatched on arm over Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Skin tone is NW20.


The Tower

The Tower is a deep cool gray with a matte finish. Swatched on eyelid over bare skin without primer. This color has a very distinct purple tone to it but is still predominately gray. It shows up equally well on bare skin or primer.
