I recently came across the company and was amazed at their range of duochrome eyeshadows. I'm a huge huge sucker for indie products and loose eyeshadows, add a duochrome into that list and I'm sold!
They offer free international shipping (which is amazing!) for all sample orders. Samples come in baggies with 1/8tsp of product - enough to get a good feel for the shadow. They do two sampler packs - 5 shadows for $5.50 or 10 shadows for $11.
I ordered 10 samples on 19th March and they arrived with me on the 28th - a great turn-around time for a indie brand! Included in the package was a freebie sample (mine was Deepmoss) and a sticker.

And now, on to the swatches! All swatches are done over bare skin. The captions are descriptions from Femme Fatale's website of each shade.
|Moonglow - 'pale columbia blue with a prominent golden duochrome and subtle pink shimmer'|
|The Masquerade - 'soft, silvery grey with very subtle pink shimmer, yet when applied the base comes out more purple/blue and the pink shift is also more noticeable'|
|Desecration - 'a striking bright green shimmer over a base mixed of cool grey, subtle brown and pearly purple tones'|
|Illusions - 'a brown based shade with a hint of auburn undertones, and teal duochrome finish'|
|Nexus - 'a deep navy with teal tones and brilliant red shimmers and sparks'|
|Deepmoss - 'a deep navy blue base with a satin smooth green>blue colour shifting shimmer'|
|Demon Soul - 'a black based shade with a colour-shifting finish, going from green through to red/pink depending on the angle of the light'|
|Phantasm - 'a pale purple with violet tones and copper orange shimmer'|
|Velvet Fog - 'a taupe purple base that is hard to describe – it also looks grey/blue because of the aqua shimmer over the top'|
