Moon Rabbit Cosmetics Review, Swatches and Look

Today I have a review of a brand new company called Moon Rabbit Cosmetics. To start this off I want it to be clear that I received this set for free in return for a honest review. That is what I'm going to do, give my honest opinion. How about some info on Moon Rabbit?



Website:
Moon Rabbit Cosmetics
Moon Rabbit Cosmetics facebook
I've never used Storenvy before, so looking over the website was new for me. The layout is very simple to navigate and all the info is easy to find. The listings include pictures of the product in the jar, swatches and everything you need to know about sizes, ingredients and color descriptions. Full sizes are a teaspoon in a 5 gram jar with no sifter. Samples are a 1/4 of a teaspoon in clamshells. The only critical thing I have to add is that I would like to know what the eyeshadows were swatched over in the pictures.

Info from the front page: 
"Everything here is handmade with love. We mix colors in small batches to ensure consistency. We offer vegan products and will always tell you if it's not. If you ever have any questions just send us a message."
 
Pricing Info:
Valentine's Day Full size set: $16
Valentine's Day Sample set: $4

Groundhog Day Full size set: $12
Groundhog Day Sample set: $3

Shipping is $4.50 to the United States

Swatches!!!

 Taken in sunlight (#23 was a free sample)


Cupid: "Iridescent nude pink." I don't see any iridescence, but it was the sparkliest of the bunch.
Beau: "Almost metallic, burgundy whine shimmer." I'm not sure if my samples were labeled wrong or if the descriptions on the website got mixed up, but Beau is obviously not a burgundy. I think the description is supposed to be "Bubble gum pink sheen with gold shimmers." Even then my Beau looks like a hot pink with fuchsia sheen.
Smitten: "Bubble gum pink sheen with gold shimmers." Again, mixed up descriptions. I think it's supposed to be "Almost metallic, burgundy whine shimmer." In which case I think is a very accurate description.
Unrequited Love: "Blackened red plum with gold shimmers." I'm a little confused because that doesnt sound anything like the Unrequited love I received and the swatches on the website don't look like mine either. To me it looks like a charcoal grey with blackened red undertones and red/pink sparkles. This is my favorite of the set.

I found when using them on my eyelid that smitten had a tendency to blend right off. In my pictures its hard to see where it is exactly.

Overall I really like this set. I think this look came out really pretty even though I'm not a pink person lol. From the company logo to the products themselves, Moon Rabbit is nicely put together. I'm looking forward to seeing what the upcoming Spring Collection will be like.
