Something about swatching shadows is so satisfying. Seeing a line of neat, perfect makeup swatches makes me smile and I couldn't explain the reasoning behind it, but I know that I'm not alone in this sort of guilty pleasure. Do you agree? 

Well, a makeup artist who goes by @ikhaniic on Instagram is perfecting the art form, swatching like we've never seen before. She is creating miniature palettes on her hand without photoshop, using makeup and only makeup. We're a little speechless.

She recreates the entire palette, with crisp, clean lines, pigmented colors, everything — including small, intricate details like the sparkles in the corner.

Oh, and she doesn't stop at the palettes themselves. Sometimes, like in this swatch, she goes as far as to recreate the freakin' brushes that come with them, y'all. How gorgeous is this?

She swatched the best collab to ever happen to us, aka the Better Together Palette from Too Faced and Kat Von D. You shaking yet? Yeah? Same.

Not biased because rose gold is ~my~ color but this one is my fave. How gorgeous is that shade of pink she created?

Jeffree Star is shook as heck right now. She said that colorful palettes are much more difficult and time-consuming: 

"Any palette color other than black takes ages to shade to get it to look somewhat realistic." 

I don't know, girl. Looks incredible to me!
