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…

Shiro Cosmetics’ Beta

Shiro Cosmetics’ Beta

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Other companies have done blue-green sparkle shadows that I prefer - heck, one of them’s even by Shiro, Lingered in Twilight - but this is an attractive enough shade. The green brightens a bit when applied. It isn’t quite as deep as it appears in the pot. The dry application lost a little bit of heft, though.

LaurEss’ Stomping Ground

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Slightly…muted? Not really dusty, not heathered. but not as bright a green as this could be (which, in my opinion, makes it a bit more versatile.) The color payoff is solid and even. The color can be blended easily, but doesn’t fade fast.

Zoya’s Leslie

Zoya’s Leslie

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: My love affair with Zoya ended when their price-per-bottle jumped up to USD$9. For a polish that’s not really much more durable than other polishes, and doesn’t have breathtakingly unique colors or finishes, $9 per…

BareMinerals’ The Bare and The Beautiful kit

BareMinerals’ The Bare and The Beautiful kit

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: The color-pieces in this kit are a duplicate of the Naturally Gifted collection (minus the lipstick.) For people who had an aversion to blue eyeshadow, this kit didn’t hold any interest! The two blues applied…

Shiro Cosmetics’ Angsty Evergreen Tree-o collection

Shiro Cosmetics’ Angsty Evergreen Tree-o collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: As soon as I saw this trio, I knew that Leaf Me Alone would make a really great liner shade. And If You Bough Out Now - a fantastic deeper-but-not-too-dark crease color. Grow Home Douglas…

BareMinerals’ Tempted

BareMinerals’ Tempted

Monday at 10:15 AM: Rich brown with slight purple tones. This one isn’t as dark as Magnifique (from a BE kit a few years back) but it’s dark enough that it makes a decent liner shade. It won’t overwhelm…

Black Rose Minerals’ Demonoid Phenomenon

Black Rose Minerals’ Demonoid Phenomenon

Monday at 7:15 AM: Softer base shade with a duotone finish that almost overwhelms the base color. The base pink-mauve is attractive enough, but you’ll mostly see the pearl and the blue flash. It makes it a little less…

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Agnodice

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Agnodice

Sunday at 1:15 PM: Makes a nice all-over eyeshadow - though if you have extremely cool tones, it may not complement your coloring too well. The base color is close-ish to fairer skintones, but it is not sheer or…

BareMinerals’ Spring in Bloom/Field of Gleams kit

BareMinerals’ Spring in Bloom/Field of Gleams kit

Sunday at 10:15 AM: The shadows are grouped primarily because the names work together. The colors…sort of do. At least, groups of two or three coordinate decently. The aqua+purple+cream reminds me of a colorblocked silk jacket I had in…
