Concrete Minerals’ Queen

Thursday at 10:15 AM: I have a few deeper purple mattes, but they aren’t quite this same shade. Volta is a darker, near-black violet; others are warmer. This color blends fairly nicely, but is a clear jeweltone purple without any blackening or visual murk.

Beauty from the Earth’s Jodie

Thursday at 7:15 AM: This was one of the few colors from BFTE’s Halloween 2014 collection that I wanted, so I was glad when it appeared in the webstore available for individual purchase. The base color is a soft enough blue that it should be easy to use, even for folks who are extremely leery of using blue shadows. It’s also a bit greyed - so no bright or “candy-colored” tones. The shimmer isn’t enough to give me fallout problems, and at a distance…

Llarowe’s Show Me Again

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Cool-toned multichrome…though at certain angles, I can see magenta, gold, even bronze. I applied three coats of this over CND Stickey (which I hope that they NEVER discontinue) and the manicure lasted, chip-free, for one…

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: One of the sub-collections in the ScandalEyes collection. Shades range from neutral to jeweltone, from pastels to brights. All of them are sparkly beyond belief. You WILL need a base coat and a sealant when…

BareMinerals’ Marvelous Moxie Hot to Trot kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: Released for the 2012 holiday season, this was also a good way for me to try out the fairly-new-at-the-time Marvelous Moxie lip glosses. The colors looked intriguing, and I loved (and still love) the Buxom…

Monday at 1:15 PM: The gold shimmer in this is pretty faint, but the base color is a very rich, very dark brown. This is almost more of an eyeliner shade, it’s so dark. The color does smoke out…

TKB Trading’s Honey

Monday at 10:15 AM: Some people seem to love this color. It isn’t a personal favorite…but I can see why people would love it. It’s a softer tan-gold with enough sparkle to be flashy but not enough sparkle to…
