I recently stumbled upon a lovely Etsy shop called RoseMarie Shadows and instantly fell in love with the selection of mineral eye shadows offered and I just had to order me some.
Now, normally I am a little iffy about ordering anything from Etsy, I have heard a couple horror stories, but the woman behind this specific shop was wonderful and offered GREAT customer service to me and I hoping to get her a little more of a following with this post because it's definitely deserved.

One of the amazing things about this little shop is that they offer a selection of sample packages, each package contains a different amount of samples, but either way you get to choose which shades you would like to sample. I decided to go with the smallest sample package, simply because this was my first time ordering from RoseMarie Shadows and I already have quite the collection of makeup, but after testing the shadows I must say that I will definitely be ordering more in the future.
When I ordered the owner of the shop happened to be a little ill so she kindly sent me a message thanking me for my order and informing me that she was sick and she didn't want to be near the makeup to prevent contamination, so she delayed the order a little bit and included a couple extra samples. I definitely appreciate her honesty, I would much rather her work on getting better then rushing an order with the chance of contamination. So, instead of receiving just five samples I ended up with eight, and I LOVE them. Every shade looks AMAZING, especially with an eye primer/base, and they blend wonderfully.
The shades I personally chose were Oink, Snowflake, Vampire, Roo, and Onyx.
A look I created using Vino on upper lid, snowflake as a highlight, and purple pirate under my lower lashes.
