Meow Cosmetics’ Shades of Meow Vol V collection

Meow Cosmetics’ Shades of Meow Vol V collection

Tuesday at 1:15 PM: We had to wait almost a full year, but this fifth collection finally got its release date. I almost bought several of these colors without swatching, but I’m glad that I waited - because two of my guesses were totally accurate, while the other two that I would have chosen…well, I wouldn’t have been as impressed. (And I would have missed out on NDA, which is a LOT more attractive than I thought!)

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Handful of Treats collection

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Handful of Treats collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Femme’s Halloween 2012 release, with six eyeshadows and one illuminator (which I think could be used as an eyeshadow anyway…) I ended up selecting Naga Mask and Masquerade for purchase from the main collection before realizing that they were part of a smaller collection. I may go back for Candied Apple at some point, but the other colors - while attractive - are not to my personal taste. They’re excellent shades to have if you prefer lighter, almost primary-pastel base…

Silk Naturals’ Juiced

Silk Naturals’ Juiced

Monday at 1:15 PM: This is a paler color than I thought it might be. It looks a little like a pineapple smoothie - nearly white but with a definitely yellow tint, and a soft, almost plush pearl finish.…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Witchwood

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Witchwood

Monday at 10:15 AM: Really hard to classify this color! It’s like a muted, deeper version of BareMinerals’ Fire Opal. The base color is kind of a murky orange-ish - think “faded spices” - and the yellow/green duotone shimmer…

Beauty from the Earth’s Grape Leaves

Sunday at 1:15 PM: The green shimmer almost overwhelms the brown in this color. Think of it as an intensely amped-up Riddle, tilted in favor of the duotone top color rather than the base color. (And this one isn’t…

Beauty from the Earth’s Champagne

Beauty from the Earth’s Champagne

Sunday at 10:15 AM: Too sparkly to be used as a regular highlight - and if you want to avoid sparkle altogether, you may prefer a different brown-white from BFTE (Butt Naked is very similar, though it’s less bright…

Maybelline’s Ready Set Green Color Tattoo cream shadow

Maybelline’s Ready Set Green Color Tattoo cream shadow

Saturday at 4:15 PM: Lots of people weren’t impressed by this Color Tattoo. They were hoping for a solid green that was near-primary, but a bit brighter than Edgy Emerald. This is brighter, but it also a bit softer.…

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Peacock

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Peacock

Saturday at 1:15 PM: Not quite the darker near-navy blue of liner pencils like UD’s LSD, but deeper and richer than Summer Cruisin’ or Electric Blue. Great for blue or brown eyes, not so sure how well this would…
