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’ Pure Pleasures kit

BareMinerals’ Pure Pleasures kit

Sunday at 7:15 AM: BareMinerals/Bare Escentuals releases a collection like this…oh, every other year or thereabouts. It’s a nice way to either flesh out an existing makeup collection, or introduce someone to BE. The colors included are usually a mix of currently-available-for-purchase shades, and colors that have been out of circulation for a bit. The color palette isn’t always super-cohesive, but each color can be matched with at least one other color in the kit.

Friday at 10:15 AM: The base color is softened a LOT by the pearl finish - which is less “reflective” than “softening/dampening.” The color would be too brown for me to use as a face color, if not for…

Too Faced’s Melted Liquid Lipstick in Jelly Donut

Friday at 7:15 AM: I love the color of this! I like the shade, it looks good on me. But…you know what stinks? The color doesn’t last. It doesn’t really stain. And it does fade away after about an…

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Tomoe

Thursday at 10:15 AM: Leans just barely cool, but overall this is nearly a “neutral” purple - neither overtly warm (no red undertones) nor overtly cool (no blue undertones). The color looks a little darker applied, than it does…

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Gwenllian

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Gwenllian

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Attractive softer green with what look like faint red-pink highlights in the top layer. I wish that the pearl finish wasn’t quite so strong - it almost eclipses the base color.

Color Club’s Fingers Crossed

Color Club’s Fingers Crossed

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: This was one of the four “near-neutral” shades in the latest wave of Halo Hues colors. There’s a bit of pale gold in the predominantly silver base color, but also blue flashes at certain angles…
