Linnaeus Cosmetics Swatches and New Linnaeus Cosmetics Website Coming Soon!!!

Hello darlings!!
    Today I have for you some swatches from a not yet released eye shadow collection by Linnaeus Cosmetics!!! I received 3 complimentary samples from Marin to swatch for my site and I am so stoked about these! (Of course, all opinions are my own and are honest. I'm not going to lie to you guys to get free stuff!)  Linnaeus Cosmetics is a great indie makeup company and you need to check it out!!!
You can check out my full review and swatches for this company here.
First, there are some exciting things happening with Linnaeus Cosmetics. Check out this info! will launch July 9th
-The week leading up to July 9th is going to be loaded with giveaways and small contests each day:
- random drawings of people who “like” LC on Facebook and/or following LC on Twitter to receive samples and collections
-A contest to suggest an animal you’d like to see inspire a collection. The winner will receive the collection for free.
-A contest to submit a photo of your pet (past or present) to have a limited edition collection made based on them
-Once the site launches on July 9th, for every $10 a customer spends at LC in month of July, they will be entered into a drawing to receive one of three gift bags full of indie bath and beauty items. I’ve purchased items from One Hand Washes the Other, Dreaming Tree Soapworks, and The Morbid The Merrier for the giveaway. It’s going to be an awesome set of prizes!
-Eyeshadows will be available at my Etsy store for 20% off until the store empties.
For more details on these events, look for updates to be posted on the LC blog:

  Now onto the swatches. 

From left to right, we have Tweet, Swank, and Jounce.
Tweet is a nice bright yellow. I don't normally like yellow eye shadows but this one is awesome.
Swank is a light orange-y color... kind of like a creamsicle. Love it.
Jounce is a deep green, almost brown color. So great for a smoky look.
All of these eye shadows have a beautiful shimmer to them and nice pigmentation. I can't wait for the collection to release!!!

I hope you enjoyed this and that you check out Linnaues Cosmetics soon. It's a great indie makeup company and the owner, Marin is a sweet chic.



  1. Yay! I think you're the first person who got that collection to post about it! (I sent out 3 different collections at random). It's definitely one of those more vibrant collections ;) Thank you so much for posting this!!

  2. Wow the run up to the website opening sounds so much fun! I've never tried Linnaeus because I have just so many eyeshadows, but I do want to try them because I've heard such good things, their packaging is so cute and Marin sounds like such a sweetheart. Tweet and Swank are gorgeous!
