Color Club’s Fondue For Two

Color Club’s Fondue For Two

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: Uneven coverage, doesn’t settle too well, and takes a long time to try - meaning that it’s the most prone to after-manicure dings and other screw-ups. And dammit, I had such hopes for this one!! I think I’ll just have to use this as a stamping polish - or try, at least. Maybe the thinness won’t be such a problem in medium- to small-width lines and shapes.

Sally Hansen’s Batbano Blue (828)

Sally Hansen’s Batbano Blue (828)

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Not necessarily a thoroughly original shade, even for the CSM lineup. Batbano’s finish is even similar to Blue My Mind - this color is perhaps a little bit brighter, but not by much. Both blues cover well, are fully opaque, and do not stain my nails or cuticles when I use a base coat.

Beauty from the Earth’s How Ya Feelin’ collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Four eyeshadows: three new, one “back from the vault”, two of the new colors to be added to the regular lineup. The four colors were also available for individual purchase right from the get-go…which was…

Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: I was peripherally aware of this collection in the months and weeks leading up to its release, but it wasn’t until I started seeing swatches - and photos from other bloggers who I trusted -…

TKB Trading’s Blackstar Gold

TKB Trading’s Blackstar Gold

Monday at 4:15 PM: Blackened yellow-gold equals brown. Yeah, could almost see that coming… Similar to Aromaleigh’s Drama Topaz, but with slightly more blackening and less of the yellow tones in that shade (which is fairly brown, itself.) I…

Beauty from the Earth’s Last to Know

Monday at 1:15 PM: I did buy this color from BFTE, I know that I did. But now it’s gone from the website…??? Well, I guess it doesn’t matter much, since I found out when I swatched this one…

TKB Trading’s Sweet Tea

TKB Trading’s Sweet Tea

Monday at 10:15 AM: The one non-brown in TKB’s Café collection…is sort of brown. Ish. It’s a medium-deep muted orange, but not so warm that it’s utterly unwearable by folks with cooler coloring. I have worn it as an…

Beauty from the Earth’s Limerance

Beauty from the Earth’s Limerance

Monday at 7:15 AM: Limerance reminds me slightly of Poodle Pandemonium. The base color of the two shadows is awfully close; but Limerance has silver shimmer accents compared to Pandemonium’s gold-sparkle. Still, if you really wanted Poodle Pandemonium and…

Beauty from the Earth’s Giddy

Beauty from the Earth’s Giddy

Sunday at 1:15 PM: This eyeshadow does remind me very slightly of another color from BFTE: Classy. Classy is a slightly deeper, slightly cooler red, with silver sparkle instead of gold. If Classy (or its deeper cousin Super Nova)…
