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 on the thicker side, and I still didn’t get completely even or completely opaque coverage. On the upside…this polish is thick enough to be easily usable in nail stamping. There we go, that’s the ticket…

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 did. I can easily see layering this over black if I wanted a blackened brown. (Or maybe using this for a near-tone-on-tone stamping or striping mani.) A darker brown has been added to the regular CSM collection (Branching Out) but it’s a slight shimmer finish,…

Zoya’s Tickled collection

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 until AFTER the Earth Day 2014 sale, either, so either I’d have to get them at full price, or I’d have to wait nearly a year. (Or…you know…grab them from Ulta when they’re having an online sale that actually includes Zoya, and use Ebates to…

Meow Cosmetics’ Stripped collection

Meow Cosmetics’ Stripped collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Urban Decay has four “Naked” palettes, including the “Naked Basics”: palettes of true neutrals, gold-neutrals, cool neutrals, and rose neutrals. Silk Naturals has three corresponding palettes (no equivalent to Naked Basics.) Meow Cosmetics covered neutral,…

Meow Cosmetics’ Original Mineral Blush collection

Meow Cosmetics’ Original Mineral Blush collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: The first Meow blush collection, their original mineral-blush formula. There’s a range of shade, intensity, and color depth; but most of these blushes are more sheer than heavily pigmented.

Silk Naturals’ Harris

Silk Naturals’ Harris

Monday at 4:15 PM: A softer, mildly metallic bronze-brown. The dry application is kind of faint - not semisheer, just…faint. Foiling emphasises the color and makes the finish more metallic than satin. Good for blending darker shades into near-whites,…

Meow Cosmetics’ Bare

Meow Cosmetics’ Bare

Monday at 1:15 PM: I wasn’t initially sure if this was a yellowed shade of cream, or a yellowed shade of beige. It could go either way…but it’s a good basic color. It’s hard for me to tell, because…

Meow Cosmetics’ Exposed

Meow Cosmetics’ Exposed

Monday at 10:15 AM: Most orange eyeshadows I’ve run across have been so bright that they’re almost perpetually sunny, or so deep/rusty that they’re almost a warm variant of brown. When an orange comes along that’s in the middle…

Meow Cosmetics’ Peeled

Meow Cosmetics’ Peeled

Monday at 7:14 AM: I think that I have a few similar-ish shades in my collection, but…they’re not quite as deep. This is a mauver, deeper version of Define Beauty (which is one of my all-time / going to…

Meow Cosmetics’ Jaybird

Meow Cosmetics’ Jaybird

Sunday at 1:15 PM: One of the few cool colors from Meow’s Stripped collection, this is a softened slate blue with a powdery satin finish. I have colors that are similar to this in the pot, but once applied,…
