ACW-exclusive SMH shades (plus sale code! plus giveaway!)

Many of you have probably already shopped from All Cosmetics Wholesale, a cosmetics resale e-tailer. They carry MAC, Chanel, and Bobbi Brown, as well as Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Sigma brushes, and Stars Makeup Haven. Things that you can’t find anymore (because they’re discontinued, because they’re not readily available in your country), you can often find on ACW.

Well because ACW has a relationship with Stars Makeup Haven, SMH created five new eyeshadow shades exclusively for ACW.

And since SMH has been gracious enough to let me swatch all their shades so far, ACW asked if I would like to complete my library by swatching these as well. You bet I would!
Stars Makeup Haven, SMH, All Cosmetics Wholesale, ACW, swatches, Squeak, Bayli, Ally Cat, 7, Seven, Taz, KarlaSugar, Karla Sugar
The first four shades are pigmented, smooth, really soft, and shimmery/frosty. Squeak is peachy beige.  Bayli (my favorite) is a soft grey-brown. Ally Cat is also taupe, but it’s darker and more brown. “7″ is plum brown. As a matte, Taz is a little chalky; it’s a browned wine color. SMH shadows are $6 each, and they’re the same size as MAC’s eyeshadow pans.

But wait, there’s more!

ACW has created a sale code just for readers! From now through midnight Pacific Time on September 26th, take $10 off your purchase of $100 or more with code karlasug10. This code is valid no matter where in the world you live.

AND (because I want you guys to try these new shades and tell me what you think), I have two sets to give away. Two randomly selected winners will each receive all five shades (though one of the prizes has been swatched… sorry).

To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post and tell me what you think of the five new shades. You may enter this contest only once, subsequent entries will be disregarded. Naturally, anyone in the world can enter. This contest ends at midnight Central Time on Sunday, September 26.

    These are gorgeous. I love how the SMH shadows always look sparkly but not overly so. They walk that fine line between “SFW” and “NSFW” and I love that!

  • I think they are absolutely gorgeous!!!

  • Charmaine B. says:

    These colors are quite beautiful. I especially like “7″ and taz. I am a purple freak and those colors speak to my soul. lol! Great swatches.

  • Melanie says:

    Alley Cat is simply stunning! What great shades for fall! Gorgeous!!! I have never tried SMH shadows but the finish looks amazing! Great pigmentation! The shade Taz would make an awesome liner as well ;)

    Bayli looks stunning! I wonder how it compares to UD Stray Dog. I like all three taupes, of course! :)

  • Cream says:

    My favorite is Bayli, but they’re all beautiful shades. However, as they are quite similar, I would rather get Bayli.

    These look stunning! The middle 3 look a bit similar, but I can never have too much eyeshadow! :P

  • Layla says:

    I love the three middle ones esp. but they are all beautiful! I would love to have these.

    Thanks for this giveaway.

  • Heather says:

    I love SMH shadows so much. They have a buttery smooth texture, and the pigmentation just cannot be matched. The pack some serious punch, and they’re easy to blend. I have all of the original colors (thanks Karla!), but they were lacking in purples (not anymore!). I love taupes as well, so these new shades would be perfect for me!

  • Ada says:

    I love ally cat and 7. They look great!

  • Arduinna says:

    They look great for those of us who are afraid of bright colours and they are just in time for fall!Alley Cat reminds me of MAC’s Club e/s. :)

  • Cinthia says:

    These new eyeshadows are great for fall, and so beautiful! My favorite shade is Taz.

  • Leslie says:

    Wow…I really LOVE Bayli and 7!!
    these are beautiful for fall. I have Hazel eyes, and I KNOW 7 would really bring out the green. love ‘em

  • knownever says:

    This colors are really unique. I like Bayli and Alley Cat best I think.

  • Those are pretty, especially Bayli! I stumbled on your site by way of ACW checking for swatches for SMH. I’ve never tried them, but they have some great colors and the pigment payoff if fabulous!

  • Chantal says:

    Thank you so much for the swatches, Karla! These caught my eye as soon as they appeared on ACW! ACW describes “7″ as similar to Magnetic Fields, which I don’t have and really want. And “Taz” is supposed to be a cross of Sketch and Signed, Sealed (which I ALSO want), so I almost bought them right away. And any shade called pewter has me at “hello”. I’ve just been hoping they would be swatched somewhere. Thank you! And thanks for the code!! :)

  • Christa says:

    WOW I really love the middle 3 shades. They are all nice. I’m not sure I’d try them though? Are they really as nice as they look?

  • Carrie says:

    Gorgeous. I’ve been eyeing those for a while, but had been holding off. Trying to be good!

  • Sharon says:

    These colors are right up my alley! I love them all, but I gotta give a shout out to Squeak and Bayli.

  • Susa says:

    Wow these are nice! Especially like the matte

  • Joanne says:

    so pretty, thanks!

  • Judy says:

    I think Bayli might be my favorite, too!

  • Olivia says:

    I’m in love with bayli! thank you :)

  • Kendra says:

    These are really pretty colors and perfect for fall!

  • Joy says:
