BBAC 2014, Day 25: Merry Christmas!!

BBAC 2014, Day 25: Merry Christmas!!

Wednesday at 9:00 PM: Today's Featured Site(s): ...everybody! And by that, I mean "all 24 sites that I've featured in this year's BBAC." Rather than try and pick one favorite, or add yet another on to a day when (realistically) not many people are going to be reading, I thought it would be great to re-list everyone who's been featured. These folks blog about beauty, makeup, nails, fashion, style...it's all over the map. But what connects all of these blogs is that they all…

Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Honey Love (05)

Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Honey Love (05)

Friday at 7:15 AM: One of the first colors I picked up from this collection. It's a great daily shade for me - the color is subtle, and it does actually stain so it doesn't need touchups every 30 minutes or so. (The stain isn't as long-lasting as the original Balmstains from Revlon, but...well, 3 hours is a pretty good length of time for something that costs about a quarter as much as the Revlon Colorburst Balmstains.)

Color Club’s Runway Muse

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: This is definitely an effects-coat. It’s sheer, barely tinted, it has a nice enough finish, but…there’s no visible color to speak of. It looks cool over deep, dark blues, blacks, greys, browns, or reds. I…

Sally Hansen’s Grape Gatsby (373)

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: The brighter of the two purples added to the CSM lineup in Fall 2014. I am more drawn to Fee Fi Fo Plum - it doesn't look quite so Easter-Eggy. The formula is fine, and…

BBAC 2014, Day 24: Glitter Gradient NoTW

Tuesday at 9:00 PM: I found some glitter gradient tutorials online, including several at Lucy’s Stash (though I tend to prefer written-with-text as opposed to video, at least I can see how things are done in the…
