I even had a Duchess Ravenwaves doll when I was little... I miss that doll! I have no idea what happened to it, this makes me sad :( So of course I had to include a pic:
Hmm! I may have just discovered why I keep dying my hair from brown to black and have a thing for the color purple....
Moving on! This collection is amazing, seriously... its like my dream collection of mattes. All swatches are over Urban Decay Primer Potion and I've used desciptions from Notoriously Morbid's site. The first pic of each shade is in the sun, second is in shade.
"Can be mean, jealous, cruel, stubborn, selfish, domineering, cold, careless and conniving but you have to be to take over the kingdom, right?! A pastel matte purple for a tiny bit of mystery."
"Loyal, brave, kind, selfless, polite, resourceful, optimistic, dependable and friendly. Everything a Princess should be. A pastel matte pink for a lovely lady look."
"Funny and imaginative with a big heart, loves making up stories, styling her hair, and collecting bugs, but is somewhat impulsive and, despite being quite smart, would sometimes get herself into trouble. A perfect friend for the Princess! A soft pastel matte yellow."
"Every Princess needs a bestie! Daydreamer and painter, cool-headed, and intelligent. A pastel matte teal blue to be the fairest of them all."
"Every story deserves a strong Prince. A matte pastel light blue for a tiny touch of royalty."
My favourites from the collection are Duchess Raven (of course) and Fair Maiden (because I think its quite a unique shade), but the whole collection is gorgeous. They were all soft, buildable and easy to blend - they weren't chalky at all like some mattes can be. I adore these and can see myself using them all the time! I got these at an amazing price - just $2.50 USD each, and also there was a sale at the time, so I also got them at 40% off! I believe these are currently being cleared out to make way for the fall collection, so get them while you can, I promise you'll love them!
