Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mist Swatches

Can we talk about these awesome mists for a little bit? I LOVE these and seriously cannot get enough! These are the Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists, recently available at Michael's. They are far superior to the other mists I've tried (Disclaimer: I have not tried Mr. Huey's). There is a great color selection too! They retail for $5.99, but I got each of these with a 50% off coupon from the Michael's app, making them each just $2.99! I should probably note that my Mom bought me two of them (along with some other Heidi Swapp goodies), she is the best.

Anyways, at 2 oz., there is definitely a good amount of product in these bottles. My favorite part is the mixing ball, it makes shaking it up a breeze! The only flaw I found in these were in the Silver (Tinsel) and the Gold. They were not nearly as pigmented as the others, despite shaking them for the same amount of time. Perhaps I could get more pigment if I shook it for a VERY long time, but who has the patience? This was particularly prevalent with the Gold. I tried to use it on some Studio Calico Mistables, but it took at least 6 sprays to get even light coverage. Any other color would require only 1 or 2 sprays. I love the idea of the Gold, but I just wish it were a little more pigmented.

Life on a budget doesn't allow for too many scrapbooking goodies. I did a lot of research before I talked myself into buying these, wanting to find swatches to see how they compared to my small collection of Glimmer Mists. I could only find a couple examples, so I made swatches of the ones I have so that the world wide web can have a resource! Here they are:

These were the best photos I could take in the light I had. I am sure I will use these sprays up very quickly! I love the Peach, the Chartreuse is lovely, and the Bronzes is SO pigmented! They're all my favorite :)
