Milani Cosmetics’ The Violet One Lash Primer

Milani Cosmetics’ The Violet One Lash Primer

Friday at 7:15 AM: I am looking for a lash primer that mainly acts as a good base for my colored mascaras: it helps them adhere to my lashes, and it helps the color appear more intense. This primer stays white, and it stays slightly tacky, like some waterproof mascaras. Be careful to both coat the applicator thoroughly, for even distribution - this will make it easier to apply uniformly. If you apply multiple...

Milani Cosmetics’ Cheek Kiss Liquid Blush in Rose Romance

Milani Cosmetics’ Cheek Kiss Liquid Blush in Rose Romance

Thursday at 7:15 AM: I was interested to try these out when they first appeared on the Milani website in mid-2020. When I was growing up, my mom had a tube of tinted gel that she used for rouge; I had memories of her applying that and thought this would be similar. It’s…a little similar. This is totally opaque liquid, so it’s easy to overapply. It’s also not easy to...

Zoya’s Andrea

Zoya’s Andrea

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: A slightly greyed, autumnal purple…if there is such a thing. The formula is a very good consistency, going on evenly and self-leveling very well. The metallic finish shows some brushstrokes, but not too strongly - more like a faint suggestion. This isn’t my favorite purple, but it is a unique-to-Zoya shade.

JD Glow Cosmetics’ Liquid Multichrome Liner collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: The multichromes that many other companies have released…but in liquid form. There are red-orange-gold, blue-green, green-blue-purple-magenta, gold-copper-chrome, and magenta-coral shifts. These have a broad, fuzzy applicator - these are intended as whole-lid shadows. I use one edge or the “point” to apply a thinner line close to my lashes. You might find that you can’t get a clean application if you sweep them on. Instead, pat the applicator ...

My Pretty Zombie’s Glazed Potato Doughnuts

My Pretty Zombie’s Glazed Potato Doughnuts

Monday at 7:15 AM: softened, more-light-than-medium medium blue (yes, it’s exactly what you picture when you think of 1970s blue eyeshadow). The shimmer is rougher when I apply this one with a wet brush, and smooths out to...

NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Turquoise Storm

NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Turquoise Storm

Friday at 7:15 AM: This isn’t a metallic full shimmer - it’s more of a “scattered aqua microglitter sparkle” on top of a rich royal-azure blue that has enough depth not to look like it came from...

Polish Me Silly’s Sunset Beach

Polish Me Silly’s Sunset Beach

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: A solid, near-primary pair of colors. The polish shift is not soft or infinitesimal, though it is more visible on longer nails when the bed stays yellow and the tip turns orange. The yellow is...

NYX Cosmetics’ Dazed and Diffused Blurring Lip Stick collection

NYX Cosmetics’ Dazed and Diffused Blurring Lip Stick collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: Twelve firmer lipsticks in wood cores, with a wide flat brush at the end. These are similar to the Buxom Plumplines - but they come in a wider range of colors. (For instance, if a...

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Leviticus

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Leviticus

Monday at 7:15 AM: This color is almost autumnal - but almost not. To me, it’s a little brighter than more brown-toned, genuine “rust orange” shades. This could almost be a winter-holiday accent. At any rate, aside from...
