Meow Cosmetics’ Explicit

Meow Cosmetics’ Explicit

Thursday at 4:15 PM: The single black/white/grey shade in an entire collection of neutrals…and it’s almost a blue-black, rather than being a straight-up charcoal or softened black.

Beauty from the Earth’s Hopeless Romantic

Thursday at 1:15 PM: When I first swatched this, I thought, “Oh, this is just like that shadow in Aromaleigh’s Elemental Lusters collection!” And then I checked my inventory…and apparently I never owned a lavender-ish metallic shadow from the Elemental Lusters collection. Still, the sentiment stands: it has a metallic finish and a muted base color, it applies very easily and looks good on so many people. (Sorry, folks with lovely gold-toned skin: this will look bruise-ish on you!)

My Pretty Zombie’s Goth Mary Poppins

Thursday at 10:15 AM: Blue? Green? Blackened…something? This color just keeps showing more and more interesting facets. The main color is a deep blue, but the sparkles make the blue look a bit lighter, especially from a distance. The blue-green shows up at certain angles, but is a subtle hint rather than an actual strong color. This is one of the closest I’ve ever seen a non-Fyrinnae eyeshadow come, to some of Fyrinnae’s more dramatic Arcane Magic shadows.

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Just a little brighter than I regularly prefer my eyeshadows…but it’s a gorgeous color. I wear this as a high-contrast liner alongside blacks, dark browns, or the darkest purples I own. It did stain my…

Color Club’s Ms. Hautie

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: It’s grey! It’s shiny! It’s lumpy! ...wait, what? Yes, really. This polish is a thick quasi-foil cement grey with little sparkle particles. Except they’re not exactly “little.” They act like pebbles, causing the finish to…

Sally Hansen’s Rhododendron (837)

Sally Hansen’s Rhododendron (837)

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Yes, rose can be both not faded and still “autumnal.” It’s a deeper rose, very dark but definitely no brick or brown undertones - something which isn’t often seen outside of limited-edition collections (...and why…

Concrete Minerals’ Envy Me kit

Concrete Minerals’ Envy Me kit

Tuesday at 1:15 PM: Two greens…not my favorite shade combination ever, mostly because of Juvenile. (I love Swamped! It’s a great color on me.) The colors don’t coordinate too well, in my opinion, because one is warmer while the…

Sleek Makeup’s Arabian Nights i-Divine palette

Sleek Makeup’s Arabian Nights i-Divine palette

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: As soon as I saw this palette, I knew I had to have it! Deeper colors? Check. Jeweltone hues? Check. A good mix of pearl and shimmer…and no mattes (which Sleek isn’t so great at)?…

Silk Naturals’ Cache

Silk Naturals’ Cache

Monday at 4:15 PM: A good softer neutral, a pale cream-brown that leans just barely pinkish. It’s a satin finish, no shimmer at all, so I’m not sure how well it would work as a shimmer-highlighter. On the other…
