TKB Trading’s Honey

TKB Trading’s Honey

Monday at 10:15 AM: Some people seem to love this color. It isn’t a personal favorite…but I can see why people would love it. It’s a softer tan-gold with enough sparkle to be flashy but not enough sparkle to veer into Terrifying Glitter Bomb territory - making it a “safe sparkle” color. It’s a neutral that leans warm, but it’s not so warm that cooler-toned folks can’t wear it at all. I know that BFTE has this color for sale, unblended, with just some…

Beauty from the Earth’s Black Cherry

Beauty from the Earth’s Black Cherry

Monday at 7:15 AM: A nearly-softened brick-maroon that sometimes…turns red-brown. Good all-over shade, but for me it works best as a contour or accent. It’s a deeper color but doesn’t stain…too much. (It’s very faint, Just a little more pre-soaking with the makeup remover, and it comes right off.)

Milani’s Shadow Eyez pencil in Sand Dune

Milani’s Shadow Eyez pencil in Sand Dune

Saturday at 10:15 AM: Pale, and a wee bit patchy. This is more of an “effect” liner than anything else. I can imagine wearing it the same ways I’d wear highlighter eyeshadow, and getting some good results. Just be aware that if you want to wear it beside your eye, on the browbone, et cetera, you’ll want to use a primer and possibly a light bit of makeup fixative spray. Milani’s pencils are great, but - like most eye pencils I have - they…

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Sand Dollar

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Sand Dollar

Saturday at 7:15 AM: One of the better metallic-silver eyeliners I’ve seen. The metallic-silvers from Urban Decay have an unfortunate tendency to clump up. Sand Dollar applies nicely and stays put. The brighter metallic doesn’t look quite as attractive…

BareMinerals’ Celebrity

Friday at 1:15 PM: This is either a muted patinaed gold or a gilded cool tan - depending on lighting and surrounding shades. It’s a tiny bit of a chameleon. Not a duotone, just a color that can easily…

CoverGirl’s Lip Perfection in Verve (370)

CoverGirl’s Lip Perfection in Verve (370)

Friday at 7:15 AM: I think this might have been an Atlanta-trip purchase. It’s available in stores near me, sure…but I don’t often look at CoverGirl lipsticks for some reason. (I think it’s the price point.) This cooler, slightly…

BareMinerals’ Bermuda

BareMinerals’ Bermuda

Thursday at 7:15 AM: A 1:1 mixture of Denim and Oz. (I wasn’t able to get ahold of more than one .01 oz jar of this color, so I mixed up some more. It looks exactly the same as…
