TKB Trading’s Hot Step Mama

TKB Trading’s Hot Step Mama

Monday at 7:15 AM: Made to replace Step Mama, when that incredibly popular product…was unavailable from the manufacturer, I guess? I’m not sure. But at any rate, for a while, TKB had this color available for purchase but NOT Step Mama. (Now, you can pick one or the other, or both.) Hot Step Mama makes me think of chili peppers. It’s just a tiny bit brighter, just a tiny bit warmer than Hot Mama. Both are gorgeous reds with good pigmentation and a shimmer/sparkle…

Meow Cosmetics’ Reincarnation

Meow Cosmetics’ Reincarnation

Sunday at 1:15 PM: A great gold when you need something that’s closer to tan than yellow (or even aged-gold shades.) This is a warm brown, but there’s a bit more depth to it; and in certain lighting you see more of the brown than the metallic gold-looking finish.

Meow Cosmetics’ Stark

Meow Cosmetics’ Stark

Sunday at 10:15 AM: A pretty versatile color. About the only thing I personally can’t use it for is lining - and even then, with the right combination of other soft shades, I could probably fake something. It is very slightly warm, so people with extremely cool skintones might have to be careful what other colors they wear this one with.

Maybelline’s Just Beige Color Tattoo cream shadow

Maybelline’s Just Beige Color Tattoo cream shadow

Saturday at 4:15 PM: A wonderful warm-ish neutral creamy matte…which, sadly, was limited edition. I don’t know why Maybelline didn’t bring this shade into their regular lineup! It’s comparable to MAC’s Soft Ochre, maybe a tiny bit lighter. It’s…

Milani’s Shadow Eyez pencil in Charming Black

Milani’s Shadow Eyez pencil in Charming Black

Saturday at 1:15 PM: I loved this pencil! This and Midnight Romance were my two favorites from this collection. I did find a few spare Midnight Romance pencils to purchase on Ebay; but not a one of Charming Black.…

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Romantic Comedy

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Romantic Comedy

Saturday at 10:15 AM: This was one of the first shades in the Contour Eye Pencil line that caught my attention! I was headed to the counter with this, Banana Split, Black Lace, and a few other colors when…

Shiro Cosmetics’ You’re Making Me blush

Shiro Cosmetics’ You’re Making Me blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: Introduced to the line when Shiro got 10K Facebook likes - and named appropriately :) Not everyone will be able to wear this color because it is so cool, but everyone who likes the look…

Concrete Minerals’ Rocket lip tint

Concrete Minerals’ Rocket lip tint

Friday at 7:15 AM: A brighter pink than I was expecting! Not a neon pink, just a very sunny, summery shade. This fades away a little bit faster than Jordana’s Sweet Pink, and much faster than Revlon’s Honey; but…

TKB Trading’s Black

TKB Trading’s Black

Thursday at 4:15 PM: Not quite a black matte, but not really a shimmer finish, either. There are small particles of white or grey in there, but they’re very sparse. The color itself is a solid, medium-dark (not midnight…

Beauty from the Earth’s Holiday Magic

Beauty from the Earth’s Holiday Magic

Thursday at 1:15 PM: A rich, deep purple with sparkles enough for glam highlights and effects, but not enough sparkle for fallout. One might say that this is the ultimate purple sparkle eyeshadow. (Hey, look, I just did…) This…
