BlogWideWeb Linkup: February 2016

Sunday at 12:03 AM: For a while now I’ve been missing the regularly-updating blog listing widgets that used to be a near-staple on so many websites. It was a great way to get an idea of blogs that were liked by the person whose blog you were currently reading! A picture, a snippet from the most recent entry, a link directly to that entry, a timestamp so you’d be alerted if the blog hadn’t updated in a few months…it was great! Social media allows…

BareMinerals’ Spring/Summer Glimmer Set kit

BareMinerals’ Spring/Summer Glimmer Set kit

Sunday at 10:15 AM: I acquired all of the pieces in this kit separately. I have no idea when this was first released, or what it cost. I’m going to guess sometime around 2004/2005? QVC has older kits listed on its site, when I search - some from 2006 - and when I started buying BE, Madras was something that made people say how much they wanted that color and were upset that they’d missed it…so I’m guessing that it was one of the…

BareMinerals’ Ultimate Indulgence kit

BareMinerals’ Ultimate Indulgence kit

Sunday at 7:15 AM: Initially seen through Nordstrom, this mega-kit was later available through a few other channel partners. The colors were all mini size (.01 oz/.28 grams) which was similar to Pure Pleasures, Guilty Pleasures, and other similar holiday kits, but the price was 25% more and there were over twice as many items. I didn’t buy this kit - it was too much money for me to spend in one whack, even that early on in my collection-mania - but it would…

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Emerald Green (10)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Emerald Green (10)

Saturday at 10:15 AM: For a winter makeup exchange, I asked for some Kiko (and some Sleek, and some MUR…basically, lots of ‘I’d-heard-good-things’ European drugstore makeup.) My exchange partner got me two Kiko Stick Shadows, including this amazing shade.…

Rimmel’s ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal liner in Taupe

Rimmel’s ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal liner in Taupe

Saturday at 7:15 AM: Applies very easily and stays in place. I use them more often as a waterline color, than a liner shade. It’s fairly neutral, it’s a little darker than my skintone but not strikingly so, it…

TKB Trading’s Luna Blue highlighter

TKB Trading’s Luna Blue highlighter

Friday at 10:15 AM: Sheer, almost-invisible white with a turquoise duochrome effects layer. I can almost add a duotone layer to my blushes using this - though it does soften the blush color and cool it down a little.…

BareMinerals’ buxom Jennifer

BareMinerals’ buxom Jennifer

Friday at 7:15 AM: Not as strong a purple as people may be concerned about...but definitely is a cooler shade. It pairs nicely with Acapulco, which is another color that isn't as vivid a -=purple=- as I had originally…

Shiro Cosmetics’ Beta

Shiro Cosmetics’ Beta

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Other companies have done blue-green sparkle shadows that I prefer - heck, one of them’s even by Shiro, Lingered in Twilight - but this is an attractive enough shade. The green brightens a bit when…

LaurEss’ Stomping Ground

LaurEss’ Stomping Ground

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Slightly…muted? Not really dusty, not heathered. but not as bright a green as this could be (which, in my opinion, makes it a bit more versatile.) The color payoff is solid and even. The color…
