Thursday at 7:15 AM: Just a little brighter than I regularly prefer my eyeshadows…but it’s a gorgeous color. I wear this as a high-contrast liner alongside blacks, dark browns, or the darkest purples I own. It did stain my skin when I swatched it, but a second pass with the makeup remover wipe took care of it.

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: It’s grey! It’s shiny! It’s lumpy! ...wait, what? Yes, really. This polish is a thick quasi-foil cement grey with little sparkle particles. Except they’re not exactly “little.” They act like pebbles, causing the finish to be lumpy. When they are on the top of the polish, you see the multicolored sparkle. But the clumping? I want clumping cat litter, not clumping nail polish.

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Yes, rose can be both not faded and still “autumnal.” It’s a deeper rose, very dark but definitely no brick or brown undertones - something which isn’t often seen outside of limited-edition collections (...and why is that??? I love this color!) Application is pretty good, but the formula is a little thick, so be aware of that and don’t overload the brush.

Tuesday at 1:15 PM: Two greens…not my favorite shade combination ever, mostly because of Juvenile. (I love Swamped! It’s a great color on me.) The colors don’t coordinate too well, in my opinion, because one is warmer while the…

Sleek Makeup’s Arabian Nights i-Divine palette

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: As soon as I saw this palette, I knew I had to have it! Deeper colors? Check. Jeweltone hues? Check. A good mix of pearl and shimmer…and no mattes (which Sleek isn’t so great at)?…

Silk Naturals’ Cache

Silk Naturals’ Cache

Monday at 4:15 PM: A good softer neutral, a pale cream-brown that leans just barely pinkish. It’s a satin finish, no shimmer at all, so I’m not sure how well it would work as a shimmer-highlighter. On the other…

Meow Cosmetics’ Lucky Cat

Monday at 10:15 AM: I originally picked this color up because it was still available in the 10-gram jar. Then I got another 10-gram jar because this is such a great eyeshadow color for me. It’s deep enough that…

TKB Trading’s Deep Russet

Monday at 7:15 AM: A deeper red, close to neutral red - no overt tones, but it does almost lean cooler. Dry application shows more brown than red. This mica is marked as lip-safe, so if you’ve wanted a…

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Crayon in Dazzle

Saturday at 1:15 PM: Attractive enough in pencil form…but it applies a bit thin. It is’t uneven (thank goodness - many glitter-liners seem to have that problem, and this one doesn’t!) but I do wish that the black was…
