Meow Cosmetics’ Kitty-licious blush

Meow Cosmetics’ Kitty-licious blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: A cooler, slightly deeper red that isn’t too dark a shade. It’s almost brickish-wine, but the brown tones add depth rather than neutralizing the red. I don’t know that this is deep enough to use for any kind of shaping, except perhaps on the very palest of skintones (where it might end up looking too deep.)

Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Nude Chic (01)

Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Nude Chic (01)

Friday at 7:15 AM: This is one of my least-favorite shades in the whole collection. It's very difficult to see if it's actually there, so it was hard judging how long it actually stayed in place after initial application. Still...when swatched, the color was attractive enough (a tiny bit of rose undertone, not at all ashy).

BareMinerals’ Pashmina

BareMinerals’ Pashmina

Thursday at 4:15 PM: Mostly a charcoal grey, but with some violet and slate tones hidden in there. Definitely a cooler grey, but not one that’s good for lining. (For that, try Pashmina Matte. Or many other grey shadows, especially ones that don’t have a sparkle factor.)

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Wizards Only, Fools!

Thursday at 1:15 PM: I was thrilled to see another raisiny purple that reminded me of Fashionista Femme! I love that color because it’s such an amazing liner shade on me, and it’s not a color that I see…

Meow Cosmetics’ Leafless

Meow Cosmetics’ Leafless

Thursday at 7:15 AM: How much do I love it that there is an orange, a green, and a blue in a “neutrals” collection? Lots, that’s how much. And while these are close to “neutral” for their color range,…

Zoya’s Tilda

Zoya’s Tilda

Wednesday at 4:15 PM: Less of a yellow-toned green, more of a bright medium green. It applied easily, though I noticed that this took just a tiny bit longer to cure on its own than the other polishes in…

Color Club’s Le Petit Mint-seur

Color Club’s Le Petit Mint-seur

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: An attractive enough color…but the formula was a bit thick. It had a tendency to cling a bit too much, and wouldn’t spread evenly once it was on the nail. Two coats was a bit…

Sally Hansen’s Cinnamon (830)

Sally Hansen’s Cinnamon (830)

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: A deep rich brown creme…not too many of these, really, so it’s nice to see another one! Too bad it was a limited-edition polish. I didn’t get full opacity in one coat, but I almost…

Zoya’s Tickled collection

Tuesday at 1:45 PM: Thank goodness for sales. That’s all I have to say. When this collection first debuted, I was interested in some of the shades, but not quite so thrilled with the price. It didn’t come available…
