Silk Naturals’ Date Night

Silk Naturals’ Date Night

Monday at 10:15 AM: I only bought two of the colors from this collection: this one, and Scene Stealer. The others were a bit too soft and didn’t appeal to me personally. Date Night is a blackened-bronze with a soft shimmer - not hard metallic, soft enough to look more refined rather than “clubby.”

Persephone Minerals’ Mars Crystal Power

Persephone Minerals’ Mars Crystal Power

Monday at 7:15 AM: Another color that I bought before Persephone’s hiatus back in 2011, along with a few of the other “Sailor” multicolor shadows. This isn’t as much of a duochrome as a duotone, but it’s attractive. The red base is vivid without being too bright. It does tend to stain just a little bit, and there’s too much gold for this to really be useful as a blush or lip color; but it makes an interesting eyeshadow.

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Gonzo

Saturday at 7:15 AM: Not quite a sparkle finish - the particles are too sparse for that, really. Not quite a matte finish, but it does show a few signs of the skippage that many UD matte pencils tend…

Meow Cosmetics’ Crystalline Cat Topaz glow powder

Meow Cosmetics’ Crystalline Cat Topaz glow powder

Friday at 10:15 AM: This…is almost invisible on me. It’s great for applying a subtle shimmer with absolutely no color whatsoever. It isn’t brown enough to lend a “tanned” appearance, just gives a soft, healthy-but-not-rosy glow.

Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Coquette (110)

Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Coquette (110)

Friday at 7:15 AM: I like the shade of this one. It’s a nice, soft, every-day just-barely-edgy lip shade. I just wish that it stayed in place a bit longer. (Quite a bit longer.) I wouldn’t even mind if…

BareMinerals’ Poof

BareMinerals’ Poof

Thursday at 1:14 PM: Can be a little thin when applied dry, but it’s too heavy and not light-reflecting enough to make a good soft-touch highlighter.

BareMinerals’ Wild Orchid

BareMinerals’ Wild Orchid

Thursday at 10:15 AM: Rich metallic purple. Similar to TKB’s Grape Pop, but a little more vivid and with a more definite metallic finish.
