Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick in Asphyxia

Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick in Asphyxia

Friday at 7:15 AM: One of the first eyeliners I fell in love with was this shade of sterno-purple. I was thrilled when I found this same shade in other lines, including Urban Decay. I had to grab at least two tubes of this when it was released as part of Urban Decay’s 20th birthday celebration! It’s a sheer color, so it’s best at either being a tint, or an effects layer on top of other lip colors. I like using...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Play Baseball with a Weed Whacker

Shiro Cosmetics’ Play Baseball with a Weed Whacker

Thursday at 10:15 AM: It looks like it might be a shimmer finish…but, no. There are some blue and purple color-flecks, and a hint of refraction at certain angles, but overall, this is a deeper evergreen shadow with a satin finish. Good as a darker accent shade, can work as a non-black liner shade. I did get a little bit of stain on my skin when swatching this one, but another pass with makeup remover and it was gone.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Umbra

Shiro Cosmetics’ Umbra

Thursday at 7:15 AM: The second of two colors of the month, created and named for the total solar eclipse happening in August 2017. Of the two shadows, Umbra has more overt, discernable sparkle…which is a little ironic, since the umbra is the shadow of the eclipse Umbra looks a little similar to other shades in my collection, but those don’t have the blackening, so the blue is very similar but doesn’t pop quite as much.

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: I love this shade, I love the finish! The only downside was that it’s a bit less opaque than I’d love. It took three coats to get a solid-color manicure. I don’t...

My Pretty Zombie’s Dolly Deadly collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: I’m always interested in new collections from My Pretty Zombie! In contrast to the most recent collections, these are shimmer-finish shadows in brighter, more saturated colors. I didn’t have to work hard to...

Fyrinnae’s Winter Sunrise

Fyrinnae’s Winter Sunrise

Monday at 10:15 AM: Not *quite* a sheer color, though there’s more heft to the pink shimmer finish than to the pink-coral base shade. It’s a bit like Cupcake Frosting, Aye Aye Captain, and the other colors...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Corona

Shiro Cosmetics’ Corona

Monday at 7:15 AM: The first of two colors created and named for the solar eclipse happening in August 2017. The corona is the halo of light visible around the edges of the eclipse…and the color Corona is a...

My Pretty Zombie’s Garnish

My Pretty Zombie’s Garnish

Thursday at 10:15 AM: An attractive shade…that doesn’t apply too well, unfortunately. I had the best results applying it dry, patting it over primer…but the usual soft sweep-across that I do to get rid of any...

LaurEss’ Tranquility

Thursday at 7:15 AM: This color applies well, though a sealant wouldn’t be a bad idea if you want to maxinize and keep the shimmer. It’s a heathered medium-light green, so works fairly well as an “honorary...
