BareMinerals’ Perfect Rose blush

BareMinerals’ Perfect Rose blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: There are some extremely faint rouge tones in this, but they’re very faint. This would make a really good summery blush for fairer/lighter skintones, with the very faint appearance of “tanned-blush”. Annoyingly, this was only ever a limited-edition release, and - as far as I can tell - it has only been in one kit thus far. BE’s other blushes don’t really look the same. Meow may have something similar, I’ll have to check; but they have such a large…

Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick in Matte Blissful

Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick in Matte Blissful

Friday at 7:15 AM: Specifically part of the Moisture Matte sub-collection…I don’t know. I like the ease of application, and the non-dry-feeling part; but I’m not super-fond of the fact that, as a matte, it really emphasizes any problems with my lips. I think that’s partially a commentary on this matte formula, though. It’s definitely easier to apply than Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss lipsticks, and it costs less.

CND’s Vinylux Beckoning Begonia (189)

CND’s Vinylux Beckoning Begonia (189)

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: A cool pink, bordering on light purple. The shimmer is very very faint, this almost looks like a straight-up creme finish…but you can see the shimmer when the light hits at certain angles. (I would…

CND’s Vinylux Garden Muse collection

CND’s Vinylux Garden Muse collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: A mix of creme and shimmer finishes, half reds/pinks and half cooler shades. They’re not quite pastel, more like “saturated florals”. My favorites are Lost Labyrinth, which has a very slight pink duochrome effect, and…
