Femme Fatale Loose Eyeshadow Singles Swatches

Femme Fatale loose eyeshadow singles are loose powder eyeshadows that come in a variety of shades and finishes. While several finishes are offered, the collection is notable for its variety of duochrome shades. The singles come in individual plastic jars with plastic sifters (that can be removed). Mini size jars retail for $4.95 inc. GST, and full size jars retail $8.25 inc. GST. Note that these prices are in Australian Dollars being that Femme Fatale is an Australian company. These eyeshadows can be purchased on Femme Fatale’s website as well as through other indie cosmetic boutiques.

Because Femme Fatale’s loose eyeshadows tend to be quite glittery, they perform best with a glitter eyeshadow primer (all swatches below are over glitter primer). Glitter primer is stickier than regular eyeshadow primer and allows glitter particles in eyeshadows to adhere to the lid while minimizing fallout. Additionally, it can help bring out a color shift in duochrome shadows. There are several glitter eyeshadow primers available from other indie cosmetics companies, such as Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy and Darling Girl Glitta Grip, and from mainstream cosmetic brands, such as Too Faced Glitter Glue and NYX Glitter Primer.
