Silk Naturals’ Juiced

Silk Naturals’ Juiced

Monday at 1:15 PM: This is a paler color than I thought it might be. It looks a little like a pineapple smoothie - nearly white but with a definitely yellow tint, and a soft, almost plush pearl finish. Folks with golden skintones might be able to use this as a highlighter both for brow and inner vee. Coverage is pretty solid, nicely opaque (unless you use a fiber-optic/soft-focus blush to apply, in which case you can get a more sheered-out effect.) I like…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Witchwood

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Witchwood

Monday at 10:15 AM: Really hard to classify this color! It’s like a muted, deeper version of BareMinerals’ Fire Opal. The base color is kind of a murky orange-ish - think “faded spices” - and the yellow/green duotone shimmer is very strong. When this color is applied, the orange base shade seems a bit more visible.

Sunday at 1:15 PM: The green shimmer almost overwhelms the brown in this color. Think of it as an intensely amped-up Riddle, tilted in favor of the duotone top color rather than the base color. (And this one isn’t…

Beauty from the Earth’s Champagne

Sunday at 10:15 AM: Too sparkly to be used as a regular highlight - and if you want to avoid sparkle altogether, you may prefer a different brown-white from BFTE (Butt Naked is very similar, though it’s less bright…

Maybelline’s Ready Set Green Color Tattoo cream shadow

Saturday at 4:15 PM: Lots of people weren’t impressed by this Color Tattoo. They were hoping for a solid green that was near-primary, but a bit brighter than Edgy Emerald. This is brighter, but it also a bit softer.…

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Peacock

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Peacock

Saturday at 1:15 PM: Not quite the darker near-navy blue of liner pencils like UD’s LSD, but deeper and richer than Summer Cruisin’ or Electric Blue. Great for blue or brown eyes, not so sure how well this would…

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in LSD

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in LSD

Saturday at 10:15 AM: This pencil was originally released with the first Ocho Loco kit. It’s a deep blue with no blackening - just color. I wish this applied a little more smoothly, but it gives better coverage than…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Moonberry blush

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Moonberry blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: This turned out to be a softer shade than I thought. Also, a bit less lavender. There are definitely cooler tones in the pink, but it still isn’t quite what I expected. Moonberry is a…
