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…

TKB Trading’s Luna Blue highlighter

TKB Trading’s Luna Blue highlighter

Friday at 10:15 AM: Sheer, almost-invisible white with a turquoise duochrome effects layer. I can almost add a duotone layer to my blushes using this - though it does soften the blush color and cool it down a little. It’s an interesting alternative to a “soft focus” layer using plain mineral powder.

BareMinerals’ buxom Jennifer

BareMinerals’ buxom Jennifer

Friday at 7:15 AM: Not as strong a purple as people may be concerned about...but definitely is a cooler shade. It pairs nicely with Acapulco, which is another color that isn't as vivid a -=purple=- as I had originally feared. I ended up loving Acapulco, so it's not such a surprise that I also fell in love with Jennifer!

Shiro Cosmetics’ Beta

Shiro Cosmetics’ Beta

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Other companies have done blue-green sparkle shadows that I prefer - heck, one of them’s even by Shiro, Lingered in Twilight - but this is an attractive enough shade. The green brightens a bit when…

LaurEss’ Stomping Ground

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Slightly…muted? Not really dusty, not heathered. but not as bright a green as this could be (which, in my opinion, makes it a bit more versatile.) The color payoff is solid and even. The color…

Zoya’s Leslie

Zoya’s Leslie

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: My love affair with Zoya ended when their price-per-bottle jumped up to USD$9. For a polish that’s not really much more durable than other polishes, and doesn’t have breathtakingly unique colors or finishes, $9 per…

BareMinerals’ The Bare and The Beautiful kit

BareMinerals’ The Bare and The Beautiful kit

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: The color-pieces in this kit are a duplicate of the Naturally Gifted collection (minus the lipstick.) For people who had an aversion to blue eyeshadow, this kit didn’t hold any interest! The two blues applied…

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…

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…
