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 every vendor I’ve tried, so it isn’t limited to one company’s matte shadow formula. Playful wasn’t available for purchase off the BFTE website when it closed at the beginning of 2014, but when it reopened with Kimberly at the helm, Playful was one of the…

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 eyecolor shift.

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 that the pastel shades are just a trifle richer than the ultra-diaphonous shades from the Lovely collection. Instead of a super-soft pale yellow, Brooklyn gives us an almost buttery-gold shade.

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…

TKB Trading’s Mermaid’s Gold

TKB Trading’s Mermaid’s Gold

Monday at 1:15 PM: Similar to BFTE’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shade Last to Know, but a little softer base color. I suspect that this is the main ingredient in BFTE’s Mermaid, which is marked as an unblended mica. This is a…

TKB Trading’s Blush Beige

TKB Trading’s Blush Beige

Monday at 10:15 AM: Neutral peach, not enough color depth to be apricot. Does make a good near-neutral color, and I’m able to wear it even with my cooler coloring (possibly because it complements my blue eyes well?) This…
