BlogWideWeb Linkup: February 2016

Sunday at 12:03 AM: For a while now I’ve been missing the regularly-updating blog listing widgets that used to be a near-staple on so many websites. It was a great way to get an idea of blogs that were liked by the person whose blog you were currently reading! A picture, a snippet from the most recent entry, a link directly to that entry, a timestamp so you’d be alerted if the blog hadn’t updated in a few months…it was great! Social media allows…

Shiro Cosmetics’ Angsty Evergreen Tree-o collection

Shiro Cosmetics’ Angsty Evergreen Tree-o collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: As soon as I saw this trio, I knew that Leaf Me Alone would make a really great liner shade. And If You Bough Out Now - a fantastic deeper-but-not-too-dark crease color. Grow Home Douglas is a mustard-metallic that isn’t as easy for me to wear, because the color doesn’t so easily work with my coloring and undertones…but in small amounts, it can be very complementary, and a nice accent.

BareMinerals’ Tempted

BareMinerals’ Tempted

Monday at 10:15 AM: Rich brown with slight purple tones. This one isn’t as dark as Magnifique (from a BE kit a few years back) but it’s dark enough that it makes a decent liner shade. It won’t overwhelm other colors, though - the shade softens a bit from its appearance in the pot.

Black Rose Minerals’ Demonoid Phenomenon

Black Rose Minerals’ Demonoid Phenomenon

Monday at 7:15 AM: Softer base shade with a duotone finish that almost overwhelms the base color. The base pink-mauve is attractive enough, but you’ll mostly see the pearl and the blue flash. It makes it a little less…

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Agnodice

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Agnodice

Sunday at 1:15 PM: Makes a nice all-over eyeshadow - though if you have extremely cool tones, it may not complement your coloring too well. The base color is close-ish to fairer skintones, but it is not sheer or…

BareMinerals’ Spring in Bloom/Field of Gleams kit

BareMinerals’ Spring in Bloom/Field of Gleams kit

Sunday at 10:15 AM: The shadows are grouped primarily because the names work together. The colors…sort of do. At least, groups of two or three coordinate decently. The aqua+purple+cream reminds me of a colorblocked silk jacket I had in…

BareMinerals’ Pure Pleasures kit

BareMinerals’ Pure Pleasures kit

Sunday at 7:15 AM: BareMinerals/Bare Escentuals releases a collection like this…oh, every other year or thereabouts. It’s a nice way to either flesh out an existing makeup collection, or introduce someone to BE. The colors included are usually a…

L’Oréal’s Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Green Ivy

L’Oréal’s Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Green Ivy

Saturday at 7:15 AM: Not a unique color, but super-smooth application and coverage, and drugstore pricing and availability.

BareMinerals’ Glory blush

BareMinerals’ Glory blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: The base color is softened a LOT by the pearl finish - which is less “reflective” than “softening/dampening.” The color would be too brown for me to use as a face color, if not for…
