Milani’s Shadow Eyez pencil in Sand Dune

Milani’s Shadow Eyez pencil in Sand Dune

Saturday at 10:15 AM: Pale, and a wee bit patchy. This is more of an “effect” liner than anything else. I can imagine wearing it the same ways I’d wear highlighter eyeshadow, and getting some good results. Just be aware that if you want to wear it beside your eye, on the browbone, et cetera, you’ll want to use a primer and possibly a light bit of makeup fixative spray. Milani’s pencils are great, but - like most eye pencils I have - they…

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Sand Dollar

CoverGirl’s Lip Perfection in Verve (370)

Friday at 7:15 AM: I think this might have been an Atlanta-trip purchase. It’s available in stores near me, sure…but I don’t often look at CoverGirl lipsticks for some reason. (I think it’s the price point.) This cooler, slightly…

BareMinerals’ Bermuda

Thursday at 7:15 AM: A 1:1 mixture of Denim and Oz. (I wasn’t able to get ahold of more than one .01 oz jar of this color, so I mixed up some more. It looks exactly the same as…

Sally Hansen’s Pink A Card (350)

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: One of the original-lineup shades. This is a little deeper pink than At First Blush, and just a tiny bit cooler.
