Corvus Cosmetics Cryptozoology Swatches Pt. 2

Happy Friday guys! Today I have part 2 of my Corvus Cosmetics Cryptozoology review. Click here to see part 1 if you missed it. Like the first half of the collection, most of the shades are in the neutral family. So I don't sound repetitive, all shades were smooth and pigmented. At the bottom of this post you'll find an eye look incorporating all of the shadows mentioned. 

Products were provided as press samples. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Photos were taken in direct light. For reference, my skin tone is slightly lighter than an NC15, fair with warm undertones. Please view my disclosure policy for more information. Swatches are done half on Urban Decay Primer Potion, half over Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue. 

Chupacabra (vegan, not lip-safe) is a medium brown demi matte with slight warm undertones. If you click to view the full size image, you'll see that Chupacabra has some silver shimmer through it but it all but disappears on the eye. This makes a great transitional crease shade as a result. 

Sasquatch (vegan, not lip-safe) is a chocolate brown satin with pink shimmer.

Skin Walker (vegan, lip-safe) is a peachy nude matte. This shade may not look particularly exciting but I'm impressed with it's performance. I laid it down as my base shade for the look below and it helped so much with making blending easier. I will be purchasing a full size of this shade. 

Swamp Ape (vegan, not lip-safe) is a dark brown base with heavy green sparkle. Similar to Atargatis from the Merewif collection in terms of formula. Another one of my favorites from the collection. This one benefits from a sticky base in order to bring out the green. 

Yeti (vegan, lip-safe) is a shimmery white highlight shade. More pigmented than your average highlighting color.

To create this look I used Skin Walker as a base shade swept all over the eye, Swamp Ape on the lid over Notoriously Morbid Shadow Bind, Chupacabra blended in the crease, Sasquatch to deepen the crease, and Yeti as an inner corner highlight. 

Final Thoughts: 
Overall I'm pleased with the quality of these products. Although there are lots of neutrals in this collection, there's a nice variety of tones and finishes. There are some outlier shades such as Kappa, Loch Ness Monster, and Swamp Ape that add dimension and help round out the collection. You could easily create a number of different looks using just shades from this collection. I always appreciate that sort of cohesiveness from a brand. Like I mentioned earlier, I plan on picking up a full size jar of Skin Walker and I'll probably pick up a full size Swamp Ape too since it's my kind of color!
