Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ City Ruinous face color

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ City Ruinous face color

Friday at 10:15 AM: Yep. It’s another purple face color…but unlike so many of the purples that I’ve featured as face colors, this really doesn’t work too well as a blush on me. It’s a bit too smoky, a bit too greyed. It works (sort of) as a lighter, cooler contouring shade. Sort of.

BareMinerals’ buxom Alexandria

BareMinerals’ buxom Alexandria

Friday at 7:15 AM: This is a VERY soft color. Almost no color at all, just a pink-tinged nearly-sheer layer of slight milkiness with multicolored microshimmer. If that’s what you’re looking for - a super-light pink layer of gloss/shimmer - then you’re in luck! Well…maybe you’re in luck. This color was exclusive to the Pink with Envy kit. You can probably find some available on Ebay. Emma, which IS part of the regular lineup, is close to this shade, with just a little…

BareMinerals’ Vogue

BareMinerals’ Vogue

Thursday at 10:15 AM: This was, as far as I can tell, an extremely limited-edition shade. It’s a brownish-red that softens a bit from how it looks in the pot, but actually leans a little more red. The pearl finish is nice enough - softens the shade without washing it out too much - but I can understand how a color like this is just…confusing. It doesn’t smoke out or blend too well, but it isn’t dark enough to use for a liner or,…

Scaredy Cat Cosmetics’ Cirrinha

Scaredy Cat Cosmetics’ Cirrinha

Thursday at 7:15 AM: I have a few similar colors…but not many. Which is odd, because this shade looks good on me, adds a little depth without too much shadowing, and complements my eye color very nicely! Then again,…

CND’s Vinyulx Naked Naiveté (195)

CND’s Vinyulx Naked Naiveté (195)

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: The color is nice, a softer pink that leans just barely toward the beige end…but the formula! It’s so disappointing. The first manicure I did with this polish, I thought: well, maybe my nails just…

Beauty from the Earth’s The Color of Magic collection

Beauty from the Earth’s The Color of Magic collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Not a kit, but definitely a themed collection. This was released before I became a regular BFTE customer, and by the time I found out that, yes, these colors had indeed formed a collection, BFTE…

BareMinerals’ A New Leaf kit

BareMinerals’ A New Leaf kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: I don’t have a price on this one, but based on other three-eyeshadow kits from QVC I feel safe saying that it was probably USD$32.00. The colors were all warmer - even the green, leaned…

BareMinerals’ Plush Purple

BareMinerals’ Plush Purple

Monday at 10:25 AM: This color is…really interesting. It leans warmer applied dry. Applied wet, it’s a cooler purple - even after the mixing medium (plain water, in my case) has dried and set. The color payoff is good,…

Lost in Makeupland’s Libertine

Lost in Makeupland’s Libertine

Monday at 7:15 AM: Not one of my favorite shadows from Lost in Makeupland. In the pot, this color looks like it will be a deep navy shimmer; but when it’s applied, the shadow loses a good portion of…

My runaway brain: makeup organization

My runaway brain: makeup organization

Sunday at 1:15 PM: I knew that I would need a larger train case, because even if I only had 20% of my items in said traincase, it would have to be pretty big. Here’s a photo of my…
