Anyone is welcome to participate! Leave links here, and tag your posts with #colorfeatures #foreverflawless and mention me (@sparklecrackcentral on IG, @sparklecrackHQ on Twitter). I own all of the palettes in the first Forever Flawless column, and a few of the Dynamics, but own only four of the palettes in the 2nd Forever Flawless column: Fire, Ice, Hydra Dolphin, and Deadly Desire.

Colourpop’s Won The West kit

Colourpop’s Won The West kit

Wednesday at 9:15 AM: Another of the NBA-collab eye liner pencil duos. I loved how this purple looked: rich purple without being blackened or candied, and a metallic gold with a solid payoff. The gold puts down a smooth line, with none of the skipping that sometimes happens with gel pencil liners. The purple is a medium-deep jeweltone shade. I picked up two “backups” of this kit during Colourpop’s big holiday sale. It’...

Polish Me Silly’s Army Girl

Polish Me Silly’s Army Girl

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: Another holographic polish with a base shade you just don't see too often. The green base is even and solidly opaque after two thin coats. The holographic effects may be more intense after a third coat, but not extremely so. This polish is a bit warmer than Camo Queen, another deeper green holo from Polish Me Silly.

Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick in Once Upon a Time

Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick in Once Upon a Time

Tuesday at 3:15 PM: I can wear purple lipstick. I can wear vampy red lipstick. I can wear black lipstick. Heck, I can wear blue lipstick. Green, though, is just a color that's outside of my personal-preference zone....unless it's a lush evergreen like this one. This color goes on solid, with none of the bothersome lack-of-adhesion that I saw with Love Bites. I'm not quite sure why that is, but I'm not going...

Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick in Make Believe

Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick in Make Believe

Tuesday at 1:15 PM: This shade is not an ultra-cool red, it isn't a magenta-pink, it's PURPLE. I appreciate having a very strong purple in this collection! Not quite a neon purple, and not candied violet, but it's definitely...

Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick in Love Bites

Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick in Love Bites

Tuesday at 11:15 AM: A “standard red” lipstick with a metallic finish and scattered glitter. It applies very smoothly and holds a crisp line, but I had trouble getting the color to adhere to the very center of my...

Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick collection

Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick collection

Tuesday at 9:15 AM: This was released for Halloween 2021 (or maybe it was Halloween 2020?) and it's still around, with all colors still available. I love that! I don't know how much longer this will last, but it feels like...

Beauty Bay’s Fiery 2.0 palette

Beauty Bay’s Fiery 2.0 palette

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: In late 2016 (or early 2017, I can't find firm dates), Beauty Bay began releasing its own large palettes: the "EYN" or "Everything You Need" palettes. These initial 42-shade EYN palettes were mostly neutrals or muted shades,...

Fyrinnae’s Little Ghost Nebula

Fyrinnae’s Little Ghost Nebula

Monday at 10:15 AM: I love colors that have a deep blue or purple backing because…well, because I love deep blue and deep purple. And when colors have a blue or purple backing, you get strong hints of...

Fyrinnae’s Exquisites: Ethereal Firelight

Fyrinnae’s Exquisites: Ethereal Firelight

Monday at 7:15 AM: Pale copper that morphs to rose, gold, and yellow-green depending on the light angle. It’s nice to have one of these red-yellow-green morphing shades with a coppery effect. When applied dry, the color is...

Colourpop’s Crème Gel Liner in Ice Breaker

Colourpop’s Crème Gel Liner in Ice Breaker

Friday at 10:15 AM: Cool aqua-green eyeliner - not necessarily good for definition, but great for an eyecatching color accent. There’s a little bit more green in this color than I originally thought there would be. I thought...
