Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Turquoise

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Turquoise

Saturday at 1:15 PM: I can see how this color would not be everybody’s favorite. It’s very bright, and if you’re not a fan of bright eyeliner or blue eyeliner, then this would not be something you’d gravitate toward. I’m not generally someone who reaches for white or bright eyeliner too frequently, but I do occasionally - and I like this color very much. It’s not part of the regular line, and you won’t find it at most stores; but as of August 2014…

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Binge

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Binge

Saturday at 10:15 AM: I love this color, and how easily and cleanly it applies and how solidly it lasts. So of course this was one of the discontinued shades. Its closest equivalent is one of the few matte pencils that applies rather well…but I kind of wish that it was either metallic or a sparkle.

Sally Hansen’s Sterling Silver colorfoil

Sally Hansen’s Sterling Silver colorfoil

Friday at 4:14 PM: A good metallic silver...that, sadly, seems to have a few application problems. It seemed to take a bit longer to set and cure than the other polishes. There were a few spots in this manicure,…

Sally Hansen’s Purple Alloy colorfoil

Sally Hansen’s Purple Alloy colorfoil

Friday at 1:15 PM: Smooth color application and good, even coverage. I’m looking forward to using this both for regular manicures but also in stamping. It’ll do a much better job than China Glaze’s Harmony, for both use-cases. I…

BareMinerals’ Flourish blush

BareMinerals’ Flourish blush

Friday at 10:14 AM: A very soft color - EXTREMELY soft and sheer. I personally get better use out of this as a blending-eyeshadow, than as a blush. There’s just not much in the way of color or pigmentation.…

Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Provocateur (135)

Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Provocateur (135)

Friday at 7:15 AM: The deeper colors in the Lacquer Balm collection do actually show up, and the color itself stays a bit longer, even when the “lacquer” finish fades away fairly quickly. Provocateur is one of the longer-lasting…

BareMinerals’ Midnight Diamond

BareMinerals’ Midnight Diamond

Thursday at 4:15 PM: Solid black, can look a bit like a very dark charcoal in some lighting, but definitely has full even coverage and no fallout. The sparkle particles are small enough, and sparse enough, that they are…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Spirit Bond

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Spirit Bond

Thursday at 1:14 PM: When I first got this color from Femme Fatale, I noticed the gold shimmer when I was repotting it…then I put it in the backlog and forgot about it. Then Femme Fatale reposted someone using…

Beauty from the Earth’s Sweet Dreams

Beauty from the Earth’s Sweet Dreams

Thursday at 10:14 AM: A brighter pastel blue with decent coverage. The shadow is a little thinner than I’d love, but one applied layer does stay in place and doesn’t fade or fall away. This could work as a…
