BareMinerals’ Mocha Supreme

BareMinerals’ Mocha Supreme

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: A softer neutral that’s halfway between a shimmer and a pearl finish. There’s a blue duotone sheen on top, as well, and faint pink tones in the base color. It’s a good neutral for anyone with pink or neutral undertones to their skin. It can look good on some golden skintones, as long as the overall color is still fairly close to “neutral” rather than leaning warmer.

Sally Hansen’s Dark Knight (834)

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: This color is very, very similar to Dark Huemor, which was recently added to the permanent collection. They’re both very dark navy polishes, both creme finish.

If you missed this one, Dark Huemor should be available anyplace where Sally Hansen CSM polishes are sold. (They really are almost identical.)

BareMinerals’ Most Wanted Volume IV kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: I don’t always know how I feel about these Most Wanted kits. On the one hand, it’s sometimes a chance to get colors at a slightly discounted price. On the other hand…they might not be…

Sunday Ramblings: January 25, 2015

Sunday at 11:15 AM: I have started using one of my super-discounted-price excellent-paper leather-cover journals to schedule and brainstorm for the blog, and it’s nice to have a book for that instead of repurposing yet another legal pad -…
