Things That Make Me Happy: October 19, 2014

Things That Make Me Happy: October 19, 2014

Sunday at 10:45 AM: So I'm not doing so good with putting these up every week. I am managing to hit every other week...which, well, considering that I'm composing these pretty much real-time at the keyboard (rather than writing them out weeks in advance like I do for most of my other posts) I'm feeling okay about this. After all, I have kittens to play with, while they're still ittybitty and nutso-cute. My neighbor, who has visited them a few times, swears that they're…

Meow Cosmetics’ Scarab

Meow Cosmetics’ Scarab

Sunday at 7:14 AM: I originally didn’t expect to be interested in this color. Warm greens and I generally don’t do too well. But while I won’t be wearing this as an all-over shade…it does make an interesting, highly visible contrast or accent. I don’t know if it’s the combination of olive and metallic chartreuse, or if the chartreuse and the olive have enough depth to avoid looking too warm. But this color really surprised me by how much it worked for me. If…

Maybelline’s Creamy Beige Color Tattoo cream shadow

Maybelline’s Creamy Beige Color Tattoo cream shadow

Saturday at 4:15 PM: A little deeper than bright-ish beiges like Just Beige or Barely Beige - but not as deep as to be closer to an actual brown. It doesn’t make my eyes look deeper-set, but it doesn’t have a brightening effect like some lighter/brighter beige cream shadows have. Aside from the nice neutral color, this is a “leather” finish - so not quite a matte, but not a frost or pearl finish. Another great thing about this color tattoo? It and its…

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Dime

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Dime

Saturday at 10:14 AM: Dime was one of the first silver eyeliners that I tried - and while it had a few problems with not being the most even application, it still went on fairly nicely. The color was…

Meow Cosmetics’ Brains over Beauty

Meow Cosmetics’ Brains over Beauty

Friday at 4:15 PM: Very similar to Undead, but with a bit more purple tones. If Undead is a bit too ashy for your preferences or coloring, Brains over Beauty may work better for you. Coverage is good, though…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Fire Bloom blush

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Fire Bloom blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: When I bought this blush, I just looked at “coral-pink with gold shimmer.” I didn’t read the entire description to realize that this was Femme Fatale’s eyeshadow Sunfire, but in blush form! (Which is fine,…

Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss lipstick in Wolvesmouth

Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss lipstick in Wolvesmouth

Friday at 7:15 AM: One of the shimmery colors in the line - also, one of the new Kat Von D lip colors, released in this collection. It’s a deeper red, not quite vampy but definitely a darker shade.…

TKB Trading’s Storm

TKB Trading’s Storm

Thursday at 4:15 PM: A dark grey, slightly cool; the color is brightened a bit by the metallic finish. Most unblended mica can look metallic in many cases; this one comes close to being “metallic” in any lighting, applied…

Everyday Minerals’ Sleigh Ride

Everyday Minerals’ Sleigh Ride

Thursday at 1:15 PM: Not quite muted, not exactly softened, but…still looks just a tiny bit on the softer side. The web application is much much better than dry application (which is almost typical for most of the EDM…

My Pretty Zombie’s Blue Fungus on Corpses

My Pretty Zombie’s Blue Fungus on Corpses

Thursday at 10:15 AM: Once applied, there’s more green visible in this shadow, than blue. The shimmer factor isn’t overwhelming, but the texture of the finish is rough enough that if you want to use this as a liner…
