*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.
