Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Tropical Frenzy (03)

Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Tropical Frenzy (03)

Friday at 7:15 AM: Not a hot pink, not neon, but…definitely the brightest shade in this collection. I like the fact that it isn’t quite as intense a color as I thought it might be, though. It makes it much more wearable. I do still have to touch this up more frequently than, say, the Revlon balmstains; but for the price, this is a good lippie.

Beauty from the Earth’s Pewter

Beauty from the Earth’s Pewter

Thursday at 4:15 PM: More ‘charcoal’ than ‘silver’ in this color - good for contouring and lining on just about anyone.

Beauty from the Earth’s Belle of the Ball

Beauty from the Earth’s Belle of the Ball

Thursday at 1:15 PM: Similar to Playful, which was brought back when BFTE reopened; but Belle of the Ball is a little deeper, a little cooler, closer to the “purple” side of periwinkle. Belle is also a matte finish, and has good color payoff that doesn’t fade over the course of a day (as long as I use primer on my super-oily lids.)

Beauty from the Earth’s Playful

Beauty from the Earth’s Playful

Thursday at 10:15 AM: I love this color! It’s quite a little deeper, but no less vivid, than Stila’s Periwinkle smudge stick. The foiled application isn’t my favorite, but that often seems to happen with matte-finish shadows…and from nearly…

Concrete Minerals’ Thrash

Concrete Minerals’ Thrash

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Such a gorgeous shade of emerald! And no chalkiness, it doesn’t stain nor start fading. When I use this as a liner with other, darker greens on my lid, I like how it makes my…

Zoya’s Brooklyn

Zoya’s Brooklyn

Wednesday at 4:15 PM: The successor to last season’s pale yellow glass fleck, Piaf (which was discontinued after just under a year in rotation.) All of the polishes in the Awaken collection have good, even coverage. The bonus is…

Color Club’s Sweetpea

Color Club’s Sweetpea

Wednesday at 1:14 PM: This polish attracted me because it was a deeper, cooler pink that would nicely transition from winter into spring and through summer. I was glad to find that the formula was thicker than Hydrangea Kiss…

Sally Hansen’s Leis-y Days (836)

Sally Hansen’s Leis-y Days (836)

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: I was really looking forward to this collection - and this polish was one of the reasons. I love the shade! Don’t know if I love Sally Hansen’s version of a micro-fleck finish, at least…

Sleek Makeup’s Glory i-Divine Palette

Sleek Makeup’s Glory i-Divine Palette

Tuesday at 1:15 PM: This was another gift from Sirvinya, who is pretty much my supplier of All Things Sleek - I asked her to pick me up a palette, both because it was going to have…

Color Club’s Catwalk Queen collection

Color Club’s Catwalk Queen collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Six colors, a supposedly complementary palette to the Femme Fatale collection. Three of the polishes in this group were sheer “effects” polishes. There was another really good holographic polish in here, though: Fashion Addict. And…
