Jan Garnet is a pink shimmer shade. This shadow is very pigmented and shows up beautifully on brown skin.
Feb Amethyst is a nice royal purple shimmer! It applies very easily to the lid and is so pigmented. It also has a very gorgeous reflection. I experienced a little fallout and kickback but nothing too crazy.
March Aqua Marine is a gorgeous highly pigmented ice blue! Now I experienced the most fallout and kickback with this color. It was a tad bit crumbly, but I didn't have any application issues.
Freakshow is a very unique shade. I love how it can be applied without glue (as pictured), and I honestly would get more of these in different colors. However, I am not a fan of large glitter specs. I think this shade is a bit gaudy, but if you love glitter this would definitely work for you.
How To Be a Heartbreaker is a creamy matte shade. I love how creamy the consistency is, but I did find that this color has to be BUILT UP FOR REAL FOR REAL to show on my skin tone. I was on the struggle bus, but the PLUS is that it works EXCELLENT as a transition shade. It softens out the edges of shadows flawlessly. The only con is that I did experience fallout and kickback.
Showdown is a gorgeous gold highlight. I love how pigmented this color is and the pan is stunning! The glitter in this highlight is larger that I would prefer, but it still looks very flattering.
Body Electric is a very unique highlight color. It's definitely serving unicorn vibes, but it's honestly not doing too much. This highlight is gorgeous and could definitely be everyday wearable. I also dislike the larger glitter specs in this highlight.
Sparrow Cosmetics has some really nice products. The main con I found with the shadows is that I did experience a significant amount of fallout and kickback with the mattes and a little bit with the shimmers. However, the shadows are very blend-able and highly pigmented. The main con I found with the highlighters is the large glitter specs and fallout. I disliked the fact that when I place the highlight on the high points of my face, I would find small amounts of glitter on the rest of my face. However, I love the actual colors of the highlighters and they are so PIGMENTED. Definitely check out Sparrow Cosmetics and save that cash with the code "SHINE" when you do!
