Cherry Culture’s Jumbo Shadow Liner in Studio

Cherry Culture’s Jumbo Shadow Liner in Studio

Saturday at 1:15 PM: This could have been such a lovely, interesting blue! It wasn’t too deep navy, it wasn’t too bright. It applied evenly. Sadly, while it was all of those things, it has almost no staying power. Keep in mind, this is medium blue - a color that, no matter what the medium, tends to want to stain or at least leave behind some trace of its application.

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Mushroom

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Mushroom

Saturday at 10:15 AM: Mushroom is a color that sounds like it could be soft, subtle, interesting. It’s nearly invisible. That’s kind of disappointing. If all you want is the silvery satin-pearl with some faint shadows of color visible beneath it, you’re good. But I can’t get definition from this color, I get precious little else…I like subtle makeup, but this is too subtle for me, even when I’m trying for a “no-makeup” look.

Meow Cosmetics’ Vicious

Thursday at 1:15 PM: There are faint fuchsia tones in this…that I can’t tell if they’re in the base color, or somehow the result of the very slight iridescence overlaying the barely-warm purple base color. Either way, it’s interesting.

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…

Color Club’s Runway Muse

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…
