Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser

Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser

Sunday at 7:15 AM: Manufacturers have started changing their formulas in the past ten years, offering soaps and shampoos whose ingredients are less harsh and damaging to skin and hair while still actually cleaning off dirt and older oils. Cetaphil has been around since 1947, when it was first marketed by the dermatologist who came up with it. The Gentle Skin Cleanser does what I need it to do, does it well, and doesn’t...

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Diamonds are Forever

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Diamonds are Forever

Saturday at 10:15 AM: Another metallic silver liner - this one applies fairly smoothly and evenly. I don’t get the skipping or flaking that I do with some other silver liner pencils. That said, it’s nearly impossible to keep a sharp tip on this one! I don’t know if it’s because of the silver, but this pencil seems softer than most other pencils in this lineup, even the other metallic-finish...

HiFi Cosmetics’ Crystal Moon

HiFi Cosmetics’ Crystal Moon

Thursday at 7:15 AM: This is almost more of a light warm-ish brown than an orange…but it leans just close enough. It’s a sparkle finish, and the sparkle doesn’t really buff away. If there’s a duotone with this one, they way there are with some of the other Labyrinth colors, it’s so much more subtle.

CND’s Vinylux Cuppa Joe (277)

CND’s Vinylux Cuppa Joe (277)

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: This was a limited-edition, limited-availability shade. I had to jump through a few hoops to get myself two bottles (two, because I liked the swatches that I saw online, and decided to save on shipping...

Sleek Makeup’s Diamond Decade i-Divine palette

Sleek Makeup’s Diamond Decade i-Divine palette

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: For their tenth anniversary, Sleek released an i-Divine palette with blacks, greys, and hot pinks. I finally bought one just before all of their i-Divines left rotation, but it honestly gets used the least out...

Sigil Inspired’s Sun Warrior

Sigil Inspired’s Sun Warrior

Monday at 7:15 AM: I like this color…but it’s almost exactly identical to TKB Trading’s Bolera mica - right down to the pink shimmer. The coverage seems a little more opaque, but that factor alone doesn’...

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Pearly White (01)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Pearly White (01)

Saturday at 10:15 AM: I love these Stick Shadows! Even ones in a color that I don’t normally love. Actually, it’s the consistency of this one that I don’t care for quite so much. The pearl...

Shiro Cosmetics’ On Your Mark, Get Set, Bake! blush

Shiro Cosmetics’ On Your Mark, Get Set, Bake! blush

Friday at 7:15 AM: I opted to only get two of the items from the cool-toned Signature collection: the periwinkle-blue Tiers of Joy eyeshadow, and this blush.

Sigil Inspired’s Dreaming of a World Split

Sigil Inspired’s Dreaming of a World Split

Thursday at 7:15 AM: This isn’t quite a duotone, but the orange shimmer is definitely strong enough to be visible. The coverage is good, and it’s a medium-depth and medium-intensity purple, so it’s squarely in the...

Zoya’s Blake

Zoya’s Blake

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: This is one of the darkest blues I’ve gotten from Zoya. (Kotori comes quite close, as does Ibiza.) I got this because in some of the other photos, the gold shimmer was a little...
