Lumiere: 7 deadly sins & 7 heavenly virtues collection

Hey, beauties!
Today I have a picture heavy review for you. Since I really liked Lumiere holiday collection, you can read that review here, I decided to orded their 7&7 collection. I acted quickly this time and can show you these swatches while you can still buy this collection. This collection contains only eye pigments, all of them seem to be shimmer or metal finishes. These are LIMITED EDITION, so if you like anything then please snatch them while you can. This post was not sponsored, I purchased all the products by myself. 
I ordered the whole collection, just in mini size - that means each jar contains about 1 gram of product. This cost me w/o shipping 27$ and in my opinion it is totally worth the price. :) 
Large size- whole collection is 55$. 
Large duo is 10$, mini duo is 6$. Duos are named on the picture below.
Large single is 6$, mini is 4$.

I will post these swatches in the same order as they are listed on Lumiere website. Color descriptions are from Lumiere and I really love how they explained every sin & virtue, because English is not my native language and I didn´t know every single meaning (but ofc I wanted to know, I would have done a little reasearch then :D ). 
Swatches are done with dry pigments, first one is without any primer, second one is over Make up store tinted eyeprimer. 

1.Temperance & Gluttony:

tem·per·ance (tem-per-uhns) n. moderation or self-restraint in action, statement, etc.; self-control. 
 - pale pink with bright white sheen

glut·ton·y (gluht-n-ee) n. excessive eating and drinking. 
- light raspberry with metallic finish

2. Greed & Charity
char·i·ty (char-i-tee) n. benevolent feeling, especially toward those in need or in disfavor.
- fine champagne with sparkling golden luminance
greed (greed) n. excessive or rapacious desire, especially for wealth or possessions. 
- golden cocoa and rust with a gilded radiance
3. Chastity & Lust
chas·ti·ty (chas-ti-tee) n. free from obscenity; decent.
- bright, cherry blossom pink with aluminum flecks
lust (luhst) n. uncontrolled or illicit sexual desire or appetite.
- pale, cool firebrick with subtle multi color shimmer

All 3 mentioned duos together (same logic- on the right side with primer):  

4. Diligence & Sloth
dil·i·gence (dil-i-juhns) n. constant and earnest effort to accomplish what is undertaken; persistent exertion of body or mind. 
- cornflower and baby blue with a sparkling silver sheen
sloth (slawth) n. habitual disinclination to exertion; indolence; laziness. 
- multi-tonal hues of deep indigo with gorgeous pale blue radiance
5. Humility & Vanity
hu·mil·i·ty (hyoo-mil-i-tee) n. the quality or condition of being humble; modest opinion or estimate of one's own importance, rank, etc.
van·i·ty (van-i-tee) n. excessive pride in one's appearance, qualities, abilities, achievements, etc.; character or quality of being vain; conceit.
- deep lilac with icy blue shimmer

Three trios mentioned above all togehter, same logic here, on the right side with primer. Daylight photo. Uneveness comes from my impatience- did not wait enough to let the primer dry. 

6. Patience & Wrath
pa·tience (pey-shuhns) n. the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like. 
- pale golden hay with a silvery lustre finish

wrath (rath) n. strong, stern, or fierce anger; deeply resentful indignation; ire. 
- rich chocolate and cocoa with warm copper luminance

7. Kindness & Envy
kind·ness (kahynd-nis) n. a good or benevolent nature or disposition.
- pale lemon lime with bright silver radiance

en·vy (en-vee) n. a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another's advantages, success, possessions, etc.
- Deep khaki green with golden flecks

Last mentioned 2 duos here together (daylight photo). haha this color combo really reminds me of Wet´n´wild comfort zone palette.

In conclusion: I defenitely liked  this collection. There were some colors for example: envy, patience and diligence that needed some help from the primer which you should anyhow with mineral shadows. Other colors were all pigmented and had nice- smooth texture. As you can see from the photos there are not matte shades, most are shimmery or satin, some are metallic. Also I think that you can really use duo for a eyelook, they compliment each other well.

Totally offtopic, but making these photos was really time consuming, but I like the result and the system. I took me 6 hours total (2 afternoons), when I was photoshopping today (did NOT mess with colors!, just resize-cut-write),  I discovered that some photos were blurry and I hate that, so I took new photos. :D 

 What do you think of this collection- I love the color combos and vairety, ofc the pigmentation is great and texture is smooth. Please let me know which of this duos you would like to see me use in FOTD.

Thank you for reading!

In Estonian:
Olen nüüd ennast eilsest kirjutamismaratonist veidi kogunud ja mõtlesin, et kirjutan veidi eestikeelset teksti ka juurde. Ülevalpool näete Lumiere skin& beauty bar poolt toodetud piiratud kogusega kollektsiooni, millel on seekord üsna intrigeeriv nimi: 7 surmapattu ja 7 voorust. Põhimõttelliselt koosneb kollektsioon 14 mineraalsest lauvärvi pigmendist, mis on jaotatud paaridesse: (palun vabandust, kui tõlked pole päris täpsed :D) Järjekord on sama, mis ülevalpool paaridel.
1. Mõõdukus ja õgardlus

2. Heategevus ja ahnus
3. Vaoshoitus ja iharus
4. Edasipüüdlikkus ja laiskus
5. Tagasihoidlikkus ja uhkus
6. Kannatlikkus ja viha
7. Lahkus ja kadedus 
Mina tellisin terve komplekti mini suuruses, mis ise maksis 27$. Võimalik on osta ka paaridena(10$/6$) või kui mõni värv väga meeldib, siis ka üksikuna(6$/4$). Shipping oli minikomplektil vist 6$, nii et üsna mõistlik- kohale tuli ka üsna kiiresti. Keda huvitab, siis link on siin:
Kõik värvid on väga mõnusa tekstuuriga ja hea pigmendiga, veidi primeri abi vajasid: envy(kadedus), patience(kannatlikkus) ja diligence(edasipüüdlikkus). Enamik on ikkagi sädelevad või metallikud, ühtegi matti tooni te siit ei leia.
Nii et mis te arvate sellest kollektsioonist? Olete te muidu ise ka mineraalmeigi austajad- mina alles avastan seda valdkonda. :) Minu isiklik arvamus on, et ELFi lauvärvid jäävad lumiere´i omadest üsna kaugele maha - värvivalik on tohutu ja pigment on parem. Silmal jääb samasugune nagu swatchidel, nii et siit mingit ootamatut üllatust ei tule. ;) 

Andke teada, millist paari sooviksite esimeses FOTD´s kasutada (ehk siis pm millist ma võiks esimesena proovida :D). 

aa.. ja Lumiere'i õige facebooki lehekülg on see ;) Neil on probleem ühe teise firmaga, kes võttis lumiere cosmetics nimelise fännilehe ära nende eest. 

Kõike head,
