Swatching all the new Buxom lip polishes - so you don’t have to

Swatching all the new Buxom lip polishes - so you don’t have to

Friday at 7:26 AM: I love the Buxom lip polishes. I have ever since I tried my first one. I liked many of the kit-exclusives from the previous lineup and was hopeful when the collection was revamped - but it looks like not all of them made the cut. Additionally, lots of the previous clues that we used to have about finish or opacity are gone. The “diamond” gals’ artwork had visual clues to tell us that they were, in fact, sparkle-finishes, and the…

ColourPop’s Crème Gel Liner collection

ColourPop’s Crème Gel Liner collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: I was interested when the promo images of this line started circulating. I saw a deep teal, a dark green, a deep maroon, and some other interesting-looking shades. I tried both their gel pots and their creme gel pencils, and I prefer the pencils. Just about every color is available in either format, so if you fall in love with a shade, there’s no agonizing that it’s not in Your Preferred Product Type. The pencils do have a few drawbacks:…

BareMinerals’ Bare Treasures kit

BareMinerals’ Bare Treasures kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: Part of the 2009 holiday collection. All mini jars, which annoyed people a bit - they’re such requested colors, why not make them full sized?!?? (I already owned all but six of these colors when this collection came out.) As far as I’m aware, only Night Owl and Peacock were widely available for individual purchase. Ecstacy and Mystic were available for individual purchase, but only at Sephora. The other colors were available in various kits originally released through QVC.

Scaredy Cat Cosmetics’ Y So Sirius

Scaredy Cat Cosmetics’ Y So Sirius

Monday at 10:15 AM: Neutral brown that looks like it could be thinking about leaning warm…but really is more neutral. The pearl finish is pretty reflective, so softens the base color a bit. This gives me an interesting-looking liner…

My Pretty Zombie’s mNg #1

My Pretty Zombie’s mNg #1

Monday at 7:15 AM: There are three of these mNg colors - same base shade, slightly different interference shimmer. If the base pink shade works with your coloring, you can probably wear any of them! They’re a little too…

BareMinerals’ Bare Paradise kit

BareMinerals’ Bare Paradise kit

Sunday at 10:15 AM: I don’t know when this kit was released, but I think it was an outlet-kit: put together color pieces, sold at deep discount. I want to say that this was priced about USD$24, but that’s…

BareMinerals’ Customer Picks kit

BareMinerals’ Customer Picks kit

Sunday at 7:15 AM: I do like all of the colors in this kit. In fact, I didn’t buy the kit because I had the pieces already, aside from the lipgloss! Chocolate Fondue and Starlight pair nicely, though Heaven…

Rimmel’s ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal liner in Nude

Rimmel’s ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal liner in Nude

Saturday at 7:15 AM: Before NYX’s Wonder Pencil came out, these were the only soft pencils in this shade that I could reliably find at drugstores. I grabbed them to use on my waterline - using a color that…

Meow Cosmetics’ Flash blush

Meow Cosmetics’ Flash blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: Muted mauve with hints of purple, and a pearl-ish finish. I like this color, but it works better on my eyes than on my cheeks. There’s just a little too brown-ish leaning to work well…
