BlogWideWeb Linkup: February 2016

Sunday at 12:03 AM: For a while now I’ve been missing the regularly-updating blog listing widgets that used to be a near-staple on so many websites. It was a great way to get an idea of blogs that were liked by the person whose blog you were currently reading! A picture, a snippet from the most recent entry, a link directly to that entry, a timestamp so you’d be alerted if the blog hadn’t updated in a few months…it was great! Social media allows…

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Emerald Green (10)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Emerald Green (10)

Saturday at 10:15 AM: For a winter makeup exchange, I asked for some Kiko (and some Sleek, and some MUR…basically, lots of ‘I’d-heard-good-things’ European drugstore makeup.) My exchange partner got me two Kiko Stick Shadows, including this amazing shade. This is exactly the kind of shade I would gravitate toward, with that rich jeweltone!

Rimmel’s ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal liner in Taupe

Rimmel’s ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal liner in Taupe

Saturday at 7:15 AM: Applies very easily and stays in place. I use them more often as a waterline color, than a liner shade. It’s fairly neutral, it’s a little darker than my skintone but not strikingly so, it makes a good visual equalizer when I don’t want to wear white or a bright shade on my waterline. I alternate this, with the Nude shade - similar neutral tone, but brighter.

TKB Trading’s Luna Blue highlighter

TKB Trading’s Luna Blue highlighter

Friday at 10:15 AM: Sheer, almost-invisible white with a turquoise duochrome effects layer. I can almost add a duotone layer to my blushes using this - though it does soften the blush color and cool it down a little.…

BareMinerals’ buxom Jennifer

BareMinerals’ buxom Jennifer

Friday at 7:15 AM: Not as strong a purple as people may be concerned about...but definitely is a cooler shade. It pairs nicely with Acapulco, which is another color that isn't as vivid a -=purple=- as I had originally…

Shiro Cosmetics’ Beta

Shiro Cosmetics’ Beta

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Other companies have done blue-green sparkle shadows that I prefer - heck, one of them’s even by Shiro, Lingered in Twilight - but this is an attractive enough shade. The green brightens a bit when…

LaurEss’ Stomping Ground

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Slightly…muted? Not really dusty, not heathered. but not as bright a green as this could be (which, in my opinion, makes it a bit more versatile.) The color payoff is solid and even. The color…

Zoya’s Leslie

Zoya’s Leslie

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: My love affair with Zoya ended when their price-per-bottle jumped up to USD$9. For a polish that’s not really much more durable than other polishes, and doesn’t have breathtakingly unique colors or finishes, $9 per…

BareMinerals’ The Bare and The Beautiful kit

BareMinerals’ The Bare and The Beautiful kit

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: The color-pieces in this kit are a duplicate of the Naturally Gifted collection (minus the lipstick.) For people who had an aversion to blue eyeshadow, this kit didn’t hold any interest! The two blues applied…
