Swatches: Beauty For The Win

UPDATE 30/10/14: If you ordered from Beauty FTW and found pet hair on your order, Laurel is currently recalling her eyeshadows. The containers she used were stored in a place with pets, and that may have lead to the contamination. Her lab and supplies should be safe. I think this is very responsible of her, and I'm happy with her customer service.

Laurel from Beauty For The Win sent me eyeshadows to help her swatch some time ago. She finally launched today and you can buy her shadows here!

She's also having a sale right now and each purchase you make supports a charity! Here's her launch announcement, in text to make copying the sales codes easier:

I'm so excited to finally be able to launch my brand; Beauty For The Win! 
You may remember my soft launch earlier this summer, along with hints of an August launch.Well, grad school happened and the opening got delayed, so I had to expand my timeline. But the website is up and running, and I'm excited to share all three opening collections with you all! 
Each collection sponsors a charity -- 1$ from all full sized products and .50$ from each sample sized product goes to a charity that relates to the collections theme.-The Fault In Our Swatches - Eyeshadows based on The Fault In Our Stars, sponsoring This Star Won't Go Out -We Are Wizards - Eyeshadows based on Harry Potter, sponsoring The Harry Potter Alliance -The Jane Austen Blush Club - Blushes based on Jane Austen Heroines, sponsoring Girls Write Now 
And to celebrate, we're having a sale for the rest of October. Not only do we have amazing Blogger specials this month, all regular products are 15% off with the code IMAMLOVE and full collections are 25% off with the code OPENINGFUN 
And if you have a coupon for free shipping from the soft-launch, that will be good until January 31st to make up for the delay in launching.If you have any questions, I'm more than happy to chat with y'all! I'm so excited for this launch that's been a long time coming! 
EDIT:I forgot to mention; I changed website hosts, which also added to the delay. But now, I can accept paypal, which I think should improve the shopping experience :]

Anyway, these are the shadows she sent me for swatching:

Her samples are so generous, I still have some left even after wasting so much on these shots! 
How they arrived.
Safety seals! Yay!
So on to swatches!
