innocent+twisted Alchemy - February 2016

What is innocent+twisted?: innocent+twisted is an indie subscription that I stumbled upon and knew I had to bring it to you as soon as I saw it. This subscription includes the hand-drawn art that matches the monthly theme and usually sends samples from other indie brands. 

How Much is inocent+twisted?: It is $18/month for what you see below, the full-size. There is a deluxe subscription as well for $12/month. She also ships internationally for $4 extra on either options.

There are going to be changes made to this subscription starting in April, so make sure to join the Facebook Group to keep up with the changes (and to see tons of other innocent+twisted goodies)!


I love these bags, and I would love to know where she gets them from! They are so cute and with all of the colors, they would be wonderful for small gifts to friends or to make gift bags out of.


I wasn't sure what the February bag was going to be themed around, but it's Phantom of the Opera! I was a chorus girl in middle school, so of course I've seen the movie so many times.



I love that the artwork is so definitely PotO, 

First up is Prima Donna, a slightly gold tinted highlighter that's full of shimmer. 


I applied Prima Donna a bit on the heavy side so you could easily see the actual color of it. It's not the easiest thing to do, to make a highlight that's actually lighter than my skin, but this one is! It's definitely light enough to be a highlighter for my cheek bones or brow bone, and it can easily be applied light enough to not show if you are darker than me (basically everyone).

Next is Paper Faces on Parade, an in-your-face goldenrod shadow.


This is such a powerful eye shadow, it's so bold and vivid, that I could definitely see it being used for summer looks or for performance looks. It's not my style of eye shadow, I'm more of a less yellow, but it's such a cool color regardless!

Finally, we have Sing, Sing for Me!, a shifty duochrome of burgundy and red-toned brown with some green (looking at least) shimmer.


This is such a cool color, it's definitely not something that I've seen before. In the jar, it looks like there is so much more green shimmer than what you can see in the swatch, but there is a little bit there at least.


Extras from innocent+twisted, Esoteric AestheticCorvus Cosmetics, and Howl Cosmetics.


Overall, I think the February bag from innocent+twisted was a pretty cool one. The colors might not always be my thing, but they always are really nice and unique. The theme was absolutely amazing and made my inner musical lover squeal a bit. Having a highlighter that actually worked for me was definitely the best part of the whole thing!

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
