My First Swatch Post: Some Morgana Cryptoria Lipsticks

I saw HovercatMittens post this link on Twitter, but I can't figure out if it's part of a beauty blog, or who put it together. There is a reference to a Gmail address, but no link to it. If anyone knows who put this together, please let me know in the comments. The page has links to the official Morgana Cryptoria site, & beauty blog, swatches of many of her beautiful lipsticks, but I noticed that there were 4 that had no blog swatches, as well as 2 newer shades that had not yet been posted there yet, of which I have samples or full tubes. So I thought I would supplement that list with this post of my swatches:
***********************************************************************************
Site description: "Gargoyle's Glance - dark grey w/ gold, copper, and red tones - a revamped version of Gargoyle"
***********************************************************************************
Site description: "Lysette - light grey"
***********************************************************************************
Site description: "Mistress of Diamonds - exclusive member shade red-purple w/ a violet-red glow & silver sparkles"
***********************************************************************************
Site description: "Totally Tubular - matte neon pink w/ cheesy 80s name reference - warning: stains like crazy! I suggest an oily scrub to remove the stain."
***********************************************************************************
Two newest shades:
Site description: "Hot Pants - bright red-pink (a Totally Tubular oops) Replacement for Azalea" 
(* does stain even more than TT!)
***********************************************************************************
Site description: "Lilliana - lilac pearl with a hint of blue. Similar to the discontinued shade "Lillian"
***********************************************************************************
Anyone else as excited as me to see Morgana Cryptoria's upcoming "1920s Collection"?

  3. Thank you for doing 'flash' and 'no flash' swatches - it makes a lot of difference to see both facets of the colour! Hot pants looks gorgeous :D

  4. Thanks, Gals! I have the full-size of "Totally Tubular", but I like "Hot Pants" even better & hope to be getting a full-size this month.

  5. @Ki, Thank you for the feedback on the swatches! I can't go into direct sunlight due to migraines, so I had asked on Twitter for advice on lighting & using a flash, & I have seen a number of blogs that do the no flash/flash juxtaposition. Right now I just have compact fluorescent lighting, so I should probably note in the future that's what the "no flash" shots are taken in. <:-)
