Femme Fatale Cosmetics, Enchanted Fables collection and comparisons

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by! Today I have a very long and very pic heavy post for you!
I have swatches of the soon to be released Femme Fatale Enchanted Fables collection, along with some comparisons at the end for anyone interested.
Like the last time I did a blog post on the latest Femme Fatale collection, this is just going to be pictures really. I'll throw in a brief description and how many coats I did.



A quick note about these pictures: I take my pictures outside in natural lighting and because this was such a huge collection, I was not able to do these all in one day ( not even close haha ) So all sorts of lighting was used depending on what the weather was like on that day.  Please bear this in mind when viewing :)

   Nala     
I actually swatched this one 3 times before I settled on these pictures because the colour kept playing tricks on me. If you've seen the look book that Sophie put together for this release, you'll notice I probably wasn't the only one having this trouble haha.
