Zoya’s Tickled collection

Zoya’s Tickled collection

Tuesday at 1:45 PM: Thank goodness for sales. That’s all I have to say. When this collection first debuted, I was interested in some of the shades, but not quite so thrilled with the price. It didn’t come available until AFTER the Earth Day 2014 sale, either, so either I’d have to get them at full price, or I’d have to wait nearly a year. (Or…you know…grab them from Ulta when they’re having an online sale that actually includes Zoya, and use Ebates to…

Meow Cosmetics’ Stripped collection

Meow Cosmetics’ Stripped collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Urban Decay has four “Naked” palettes, including the “Naked Basics”: palettes of true neutrals, gold-neutrals, cool neutrals, and rose neutrals. Silk Naturals has three corresponding palettes (no equivalent to Naked Basics.) Meow Cosmetics covered neutral, rose, gold, and cool neutrals in one palette…and did a damn good job, too. True, if you love rosy neutral eyeshadows, you have fewer choices in this palette than the ones from the other two vendors. But Peeled and Topless are both great colors with…

Meow Cosmetics’ Original Mineral Blush collection

Meow Cosmetics’ Original Mineral Blush collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: The first Meow blush collection, their original mineral-blush formula. There’s a range of shade, intensity, and color depth; but most of these blushes are more sheer than heavily pigmented.

Silk Naturals’ Harris

Silk Naturals’ Harris

Monday at 4:15 PM: A softer, mildly metallic bronze-brown. The dry application is kind of faint - not semisheer, just…faint. Foiling emphasises the color and makes the finish more metallic than satin. Good for blending darker shades into near-whites,…

Meow Cosmetics’ Bare

Meow Cosmetics’ Bare

Monday at 1:15 PM: I wasn’t initially sure if this was a yellowed shade of cream, or a yellowed shade of beige. It could go either way…but it’s a good basic color. It’s hard for me to tell, because…

Meow Cosmetics’ Exposed

Meow Cosmetics’ Exposed

Monday at 10:15 AM: Most orange eyeshadows I’ve run across have been so bright that they’re almost perpetually sunny, or so deep/rusty that they’re almost a warm variant of brown. When an orange comes along that’s in the middle…

Meow Cosmetics’ Peeled

Meow Cosmetics’ Peeled

Monday at 7:14 AM: I think that I have a few similar-ish shades in my collection, but…they’re not quite as deep. This is a mauver, deeper version of Define Beauty (which is one of my all-time / going to…

Meow Cosmetics’ Jaybird

Meow Cosmetics’ Jaybird

Sunday at 1:15 PM: One of the few cool colors from Meow’s Stripped collection, this is a softened slate blue with a powdery satin finish. I have colors that are similar to this in the pot, but once applied,…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Royal Tarts

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Royal Tarts

Sunday at 10:15 AM: I love highlighters and “effects colors” like this one that are actually opaque. It gives me the option to use them as standalone shades. There’s a faint gold shimmer to this that’s only really visible…

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Navy

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Navy

Saturday at 1:15 PM: I was expecting another creme, but this one has a faintly metallic finish. The application is a little less even than the creme smudge sticks, but it’s much better than other metallic eyeshadow pencils, from…
