Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Gonzo

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Gonzo

Saturday at 7:15 AM: Not quite a sparkle finish - the particles are too sparse for that, really. Not quite a matte finish, but it does show a few signs of the skippage that many UD matte pencils tend to have. I have other electric-blue eye pencils that give me better coverage: Nyx, Sephora, Jordana, Milani.

Meow Cosmetics’ Crystalline Cat Topaz glow powder

Meow Cosmetics’ Crystalline Cat Topaz glow powder

Friday at 10:15 AM: This…is almost invisible on me. It’s great for applying a subtle shimmer with absolutely no color whatsoever. It isn’t brown enough to lend a “tanned” appearance, just gives a soft, healthy-but-not-rosy glow.

Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Coquette (110)

Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Coquette (110)

Friday at 7:15 AM: I like the shade of this one. It’s a nice, soft, every-day just-barely-edgy lip shade. I just wish that it stayed in place a bit longer. (Quite a bit longer.) I wouldn’t even mind if…

BareMinerals’ Wild Orchid

BareMinerals’ Wild Orchid

Thursday at 10:15 AM: Rich metallic purple. Similar to TKB’s Grape Pop, but a little more vivid and with a more definite metallic finish.

Silk Naturals’ Duct Tape

Silk Naturals’ Duct Tape

Thursday at 7:15 AM: A very pale blue, almost a cool grey with blue tones and a very faint amount of shimmer. The finish is more like a roughened pearl. The color doesn’t blend especially well, but makes a…

BareMinerals’ Grand Illusion

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: Not the very best performer in this kit, and I’ve seen better matte soft blacks from other companies. But…not tons better. And I’ve certainly come across worse performers. If I use a primer and a…

Llarowe’s Show Off

Llarowe’s Show Off

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: This was my least favorite of the Show Me colors from Llarowe. It is a multichrome, but the colorshift isn’t as pronounced as in the green/blue/purple polishes. Still, it’s good to have warm-toned multichromes in…

CND’s Vinylux Sunbleached (165)

CND’s Vinylux Sunbleached (165)

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: I didn’t know if I’d like this color. The shade looked nice, but I haven’t had the very best luck with yellow polishes. I bought this one, though, and gave it a shot. It’s a…
