CoverGirl’s Lip Perfection in Verve (370)

CoverGirl’s Lip Perfection in Verve (370)

Friday at 7:15 AM: I think this might have been an Atlanta-trip purchase. It’s available in stores near me, sure…but I don’t often look at CoverGirl lipsticks for some reason.

bareMinerals’ Center Stage

Tuesday at 1:15 PM: Unassuming-looking medium warm brown with very strong color payoff and a satiny, near-pearl finish. Almost dark enough for lining (too light for some), dark enough to make a good contour shade on fair to medium…

Sleek Makeup’s Garden of Eden i-Divine palette

Sleek Makeup’s Garden of Eden i-Divine palette

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: A pretty set of earthy cooler shades. Not quite as rich as I’d originally hoped, but a nice range of colors. Think of this as the cooler complement to the long-discontinued Safari palette. Unlike Safari,…
