High Voltage Cosmetics Swatches

*Edit* Unfortunately, I cannot support this company any longer. I will still keep my posts.
Awhile ago I received some samples from High Voltage Cosmetics. The samples I received looked so much more complex then the samples I received when I first started blogging. So I decided to compile all my samples from HVC and swatch em all. You can see the difference in complexity for alot of them. I tried to organize them by color. One thing I noticed about HVC is alot of their e/s are what I like to call glitter-mattes (GM). GMs are a matte base with lots of sparklies. Most companies have very shimmery e/s but most of HVC's that I own are GMs. I like that alot. Also many of my older samples that I own have just multi colored sparklies while her new ones tend to have one color.

So here are my swatches! *no primer*
Break the Ice - is a white GM with some nice multi sparklies.
Midnight Oil - is a navy/black GM with multi sparklies
Big Spender - applied patchy but it is a pretty sky blue GM with green sparkles.

Frost Bite - is one of the shimmery ones. It is a shimmery blue with green sparklies and a green shimmer.
Detroit Rock City - is a shimmery light blue with no noticeable sparklies.
In the Lime Light - is a dark teal GM with gold sparklies in it. 

Ice Sculpture - is a light blurple/lavender GM with multi sparklies.
All Shook Up - is a baby pink GM with multi sparklies.
Young Lust - is a light coral shade which i absolutely adore. it is a GM with multi sparklies.

Rock Forever - is a blood red GM with gold sparkles it would make a lovely crease shadow.
Lovesick Junkie - is an orange/pink duochrome. It is one of my favorites of this bunch of shadows. it is a GM with no sparklies at all. But in certain lights it looks pink.
