Darling Girl Cosmetics: Only One Can Win Collection (Hunger Games)

Susan from Darling Girl has come up with an amazing collection inspired by the Hunger Games. I was honored to be a small part of the creation process along with Helen, Robyn and Mandy. The game begins on March 5 so let's hope the odds are in your favor! ;-) (if you haven't read the books, that means this collection will be available on March 5!)

Little touches like this are what I love about Darling Girl. The labels are so perfect for the story!

Let's get onto the eyeshadows...

Boy with the Bread is a warm taupe with subtle blue shift.

Live Wire is a hard color to describe... it's silvery with a slight green tinge.

Well Dressed is a little more purple than it shows here, but it's a near matte shade with tiny loose silver and purple sparkles.

Rue's Lullaby is a lovely dusty pink.

The Seam is a murky brown with green undertones and blue sparkles.

Fire Inside is one of my favorites... a rich red with gold and green sparks.

Mayor's Daughter is a stunning gold with a LOAD of multicoloured sparkles, mostly light blue, light peach and silver.

Obviously a Wig is another favorite, it's a gorgeous magenta with strong purple/blue flash.

Songbird Weaponry is a rich navy blue with blue and gold sparkles.

Squirrel Hunter is a brown toned green with light gold and silver (maybe a little green?) sparkles.

Survival Instinct was a hard one to capture as my camera kept turning it burgundy, it's more violet than this. The sparkle in this is INSANE and multicoloured.

The Final Gift is a yet another favorite, and is glowing metallic copper. This is another super sparkly shade, gorgeous!

Some natural light and flash shots of the colors in groups:

Last but not least, Susan created a lip balm for this collection called Love is an Act:

This is a coral pink with blue sparkles. The formula is up to her usual balm standards - not sticky, drying or tacky. It glides on super smooth and has decent opacity in one pass.

I absolutely love this collection, right down to the names! I think it encompasses the spirit of the characters and the plot of the Hunger Games. I honestly think it's my favorite collection of hers to date.

What do you think of Only One Can Win? Are you hauling anything? I hope so!
