Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick in Matte Confident

Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick in Matte Confident

Friday at 7:14 AM: Solid color payoff, easy application. The one thing that I noticed was that it applied a little bit…unevenly. Maybe this was just more noticeable with this color because it was so saturated. At any rate, if you want a 1950s-red lipstick and don’t care to pay $30 a tube, this is an excellent choice. The strong scent - just a bit chemical-y, trying to evoke grapeseed and overshooting the mark just a tad - can be offputting, but I’ve found…

Shiro Cosmetics’ Midna / Twilight Realm

Shiro Cosmetics’ Midna / Twilight Realm

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Silver-grey underneath, with blue sparkle top-notes. It doesn’t smudge or blend out too well, but it does make an attractive accent. It even works as a liner, since the sparkle is not chunky enough to start flaking away at the slightest opportunity.

Sally Hansen’s Greige (300)

Sally Hansen’s Greige (300)

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Maybe supposed to be a darker tan…but I’m seeing a cool-neutral medium-deep grey. Not my favorite shade…but I can probably get some interesting colorblocking effects using this shade.

Color Club’s Sheer Disguise

Color Club’s Sheer Disguise

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: Lovely (in my opinion) greyed beach-house blue creme. It is semisheer, so I needed 3 coats for full opacity - and I probably would have gotten even better results with a fourth coat. On the…

CND’s Vinylux Paradise collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: A group of Skittles-brights, great for summer. They’re all creme finishes. The entire rainbow is in here, too: red through green to purple. I have three of these polishes. I may go back and pick…

BareMinerals’ Snowbound kit

BareMinerals’ Snowbound kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: Quite similar to the White Collection kit - but there is one non-white color in here, so these can actually be used to create an entire eye look including contour and shading. (Not so, White…

BareMinerals’ Honey Diamond

BareMinerals’ Honey Diamond

Monday at 10:15 AM: This is so close to a pearl finish rather than a shimmer! Except…it’s a little rougher than a pearl finish. It does let a little bit more of the base color show through, though. This…

BareMinerals’ Enchanting Diamond

BareMinerals’ Enchanting Diamond

Monday at 7:15 AM: The base color is attractive, but it’s nearly overwhelmed by the rather reflective pearl finish. The color applies evenly and stays in place well, though - as always - I personally get better results if…

BareMinerals’ Dancing Glimpses kit

BareMinerals’ Dancing Glimpses kit

Sunday at 10:15 AM: Four eyeshadows that are grouped together…by name. They sort of coordinate - they’re all in roughly the same luminance-range, there isn’t one super dark color and a bunch of lighter shades - but they don’t…
