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) had you concerned that maybe it was too deep a red for you, Giddy may be closer to your personal comfort zone. Giddy is a warmer red, though, so people with extremely cool-toned coloring may need to be careful what they pair this one up…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Sea of Something

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Sea of Something

Sunday at 10:15 AM: Very deep, rich, incredibly vivid blue-violet with blue interference shimmer. If you’re thinking of passing this one by because you have enough purple eyeshadows…don’t. Seriously. Go back and get it now. I’ll wait.

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Caipirinha Dreamin’

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Caipirinha Dreamin’

Saturday at 1:15 PM: This was one of the two exclusive shades in the Ten Shades of Samba kit, so I was very excited to see how it looked. Could have been worse. But definitely could have been better. I don’t know if it’s these lighter greens, or metallic finish pencils, but both of the exclusive shades in this kit applied just a bit on the patchy side. (Tropical Dancefloor, the metallic orange, performed worse.) A second go with the pencil didn’t get me…

Maybelline’s Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo cream shadow

Saturday at 10:15 AM: I managed to get all five of the Leather color tattoos from Ulta, when they were having a nice sale on all Maybelline products. (I love sales. I especially love sales where the items that…

Meow Cosmetics’ Kitty-licious blush

Meow Cosmetics’ Kitty-licious blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: A cooler, slightly deeper red that isn’t too dark a shade. It’s almost brickish-wine, but the brown tones add depth rather than neutralizing the red. I don’t know that this is deep enough to use…

Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Nude Chic (01)

Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Nude Chic (01)

Friday at 7:15 AM: This is one of my least-favorite shades in the whole collection. It's very difficult to see if it's actually there, so it was hard judging how long it actually stayed in place after initial application.…

BareMinerals’ Pashmina

BareMinerals’ Pashmina

Thursday at 4:15 PM: Mostly a charcoal grey, but with some violet and slate tones hidden in there. Definitely a cooler grey, but not one that’s good for lining. (For that, try Pashmina Matte. Or many other grey shadows,…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Wizards Only, Fools!

Thursday at 1:15 PM: I was thrilled to see another raisiny purple that reminded me of Fashionista Femme! I love that color because it’s such an amazing liner shade on me, and it’s not a color that I see…

Meow Cosmetics’ Leafless

Meow Cosmetics’ Leafless

Thursday at 7:15 AM: How much do I love it that there is an orange, a green, and a blue in a “neutrals” collection? Lots, that’s how much. And while these are close to “neutral” for their color range,…
