Swatching all the new Buxom lip polishes - so you don’t have to

Swatching all the new Buxom lip polishes - so you don’t have to

Friday at 7:26 AM: I love the Buxom lip polishes. I have ever since I tried my first one. I liked many of the kit-exclusives from the previous lineup and was hopeful when the collection was revamped - but it looks like not all of them made the cut. Additionally, lots of the previous clues that we used to have about finish or opacity are gone. The “diamond” gals’ artwork had visual clues to tell us that they were, in fact, sparkle-finishes, and the…

Shiro Cosmetics’ All Kinds of Courage

Shiro Cosmetics’ All Kinds of Courage

Thursday at 7:15 AM: There is some gold shimmer in this, but it’s very scattered and subtle. It lets the base color take center stage. This color is great for me because I can wear blue, but it’s not so vivid that it completely washes out my blue-grey eyes. This color did not stain, even when I swatched it over bare skin.

Fyrinnae’s Arcane Magic: Lady Glamis

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: At certain distances and angles, this color starts to show a pink finish. Most of the time, though, the base color is a blackened deep violet.

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: This one definitely looks better when applied dry - or, at least, not when using water as the mixing medium. It blends, but it’s got a bit of sootiness to it, so be careful blending…

Girly Bits’ I’m Your Venus

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: The copper base color is a little paler than I’d ideally love, but it almost looks like a softened brown - so it doesn’t lean too orange. Application is really smooth, and there’s plenty of…

ColourPop’s Crème Gel Liner collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: I was interested when the promo images of this line started circulating. I saw a deep teal, a dark green, a deep maroon, and some other interesting-looking shades. I tried both their gel pots and…

BareMinerals’ Bare Treasures kit

BareMinerals’ Bare Treasures kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: Part of the 2009 holiday collection. All mini jars, which annoyed people a bit - they’re such requested colors, why not make them full sized?!?? (I already owned all but six of these colors when…

Scaredy Cat Cosmetics’ Y So Sirius

Scaredy Cat Cosmetics’ Y So Sirius

Monday at 10:15 AM: Neutral brown that looks like it could be thinking about leaning warm…but really is more neutral. The pearl finish is pretty reflective, so softens the base color a bit. This gives me an interesting-looking liner…

My Pretty Zombie’s mNg #1

My Pretty Zombie’s mNg #1

Monday at 7:15 AM: There are three of these mNg colors - same base shade, slightly different interference shimmer. If the base pink shade works with your coloring, you can probably wear any of them! They’re a little too…

BareMinerals’ Bare Paradise kit

BareMinerals’ Bare Paradise kit

Sunday at 10:15 AM: I don’t know when this kit was released, but I think it was an outlet-kit: put together color pieces, sold at deep discount. I want to say that this was priced about USD$24, but that’s…
