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…

BareMinerals’ Sweet Adoration kit

BareMinerals’ Sweet Adoration kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: The color combination in this kit wasn’t necessarily exciting: one brown, one brownish-purple, a purply-brown blush, and a berry-red lip. I love these colors, just not all together. There isn’t quite enough variation for me! I think that Heart’s Desire might be a combination of Heart and Desire. I do love the lip color - it’s a great shade on me, I just wish it was widely available in the larger size!

Shiro Cosmetics’ He Who Must Not Be Named

Shiro Cosmetics’ He Who Must Not Be Named

Monday at 10:15 AM: The main shade is beige…sort of. It has some green tones, and a faint red component to the satin finish. There’s a lot going on in this color, and I love it! I can see how this would be less appealing to folks who can’t wear, or don’t like to wear, green…but give it a shot. It can act like a medium ashy-beige matte, even more so when you blend it a bit.

Fyrinnae’s Dryad

Fyrinnae’s Dryad

Monday at 7:15 AM: From Fyrinnae…a straight up pink. A cooler pink with some lavender tones and a nice even finish, and a very well pigmented pink…but. Pink. On the other hand - simple pink! From Fyrinnae! Their general…

BareMinerals’ Exotic Destinations: Santorini kit

BareMinerals’ Exotic Destinations: Santorini kit

Sunday at 7:15 AM: I think this is the only all-neutrals “Destination” kit, with two browns and a black. Pebbled Beach is a tan with iridescence, but it’s definitely brown. While the combination may not be fascinating, the individual…

Stila’s Brown Smudge Pot

Stila’s Brown Smudge Pot

Saturday at 10:15 AM: Not quite a blackened brown, but very close. This makes a good liner - for me, it’s a better liner than all-over cream shadow, just because the color is so dark. I can use this…

Sleek Makeup’s Eau La La Liner in Dragon Fruit

Sleek Makeup’s Eau La La Liner in Dragon Fruit

Saturday at 7:15 AM: This liner was a much more positive experience than Melba. The liner sharpened easily, the product didn’t crumble, and the line produced was decent - the pencil was soft enough to apply, but not so…

Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Pink Pop (860)

Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Pink Pop (860)

Friday at 1:15 PM: I thought this would lean more magenta. It’s…a bit lighter than I expected. This shade isn’t something I prefer to wear. The coverage is good. This performs as well as my other matte/creme Colorsensational lipsticks.…

BareMinerals’ Gold Gossamer highlighter

BareMinerals’ Gold Gossamer highlighter

Friday at 10:15 AM: Soft metallic gold highlight powder - it can’t really be used to do metallic lining or what have you, but a dusting of this over a lipstick gives a really interesting topcoat! Does work nicely…
