Here are some more pretty colours for you from Darling Girl Cosmetics. Oh, for the love of sparkles! I'm addicted. I'll be wearing glitter eyeshadow until the day I die. Life is too short not to sparkle!
Here there are swatches of Strange & Unusual from the Ghost With The Most collection, Jacks' Lantern from the Darling Ghoul Halloween collection and Redemption.
Darling Girl colour descriptions:
Strange & Unusual - Murky lavender with strong blue flash!
Jacks' Lantern - It's a deep black base with a fiery red/orange shift. The combination looks like a blackened purple, especially when foiled.
Redemption - Sooty taupe grey with a strong gold flash.

Each sample bag you get - even though it has a tiny amount of product - will give you enough for 2-3 uses or more, certainly enough to tell if you want to buy a bigger size. You can buy 5 sample bags on the website for $4, which is an absolute steal.
Full sizes have 3/4 tea spoon of product in a sifter jar and cost $5.90 (about £3.65.) Petit sizes have 1/4 tea spoon of product in a sifter jar and cost $2.50 (about £1.55.) It doesn't sound like a lot of product but it goes so, so far, especially if you use a sticky base to make your shadows pop. I did swatches today using Darling Girl Glitter Glue. It makes such a difference!
I had a slight problem with Strange & Unusual. I had to use quite a lot of product to get it to show up evenly. Maybe it's a layering shadow? It certainly has a lovely flash to it and would look great over black or other dark colours. Jack's Lantern and Redemption are both utterly gorgeous.
If you're looking for unusual colours and ridiculous amounts of pigment AND on a budget, you could do no better than Darling Girl Cosmetics in my opinion. As ever, all products were bought by myself.
Did anything here take your fancy?
