Here are some shabby holiday shades
from Black Moon Cosmetics.
Both are sister shades from the Dearly Departed Duo bundle, and I suppose they look like the same shade on me. The difference is pretty slight but more noticeable in person. These were taken in bright natural light.
- Grave is a bolder, warmer brown, like an old sanguine brick
- Grim is a more muted, cooler brown, like a dusty dark chocolate.
To note, both these shades have significantly more staying power than the two shades below. Hazel washed off the fastest, followed by Eternal.
Hazel is a seasonal shade, but olive green has been my forever-favorite color since ever. If you're too late to grab it, Lime Crime Trouble would work as a dupe, though Lime Crime formulas feel a lot more dry and their lipsticks seem to come with really little product.
Eternal is from their Black Metal line of blackened metallic shades. It's pictured here solo, but layer this shade on top of Grave to add some depth and increase longevity! Seriously, this combo will stay on your lips perfectly all day and you won't even feel a thing.
Some metallic lipsticks from other brands have a strong metal taste, but all Black Moon lipsticks taste like spiced dessert!
Anyways, here are some swatches.
