Welcome back everyone! It's time for another Innocent+Twisted Alchemy subscription box! For any new readers, this is a monthly subscription where you get three to four eyeshadows from I+T and several samples from other indie companies. They are sold in two sizes, a sample size (I don't remember the exact price, I believe it's $12/month), and a deluxe size ($16, I believe). The sample size includes sample sized eyeshadows, which are normally priced at $3/each and deluxe size includes full-sized eyeshadows, which retail for $6/each. Either way, this is a really great deal and I love trying out products from other companies as well.
This month is different because it has a mermaid theme. The owner, Linda, hand draws everything and they're always beautiful. The picture you see below was drawn by her and the label art were drawn by a friend of hers. As usual, we received eyeshadow from I+T and other companies, but this month also had a blush, liquid shimmer, and a beautiful lip gloss!

This month's colors has a fresh, spring-y feel to them. All the colors seem light and airy, so it's a good thing that one dark shade was included if you wanted to do a look with only the products in this box. I love the mermaid theme and hope she does it again. A big surprise to me was how much I loved the lip gloss, it's made me aware of Spectrum Cosmetics now and I'll definitely be looking into it in the future.
