Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Good Mood

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Good Mood

Saturday at 7:15 AM: One of the first pencils (outside of the Ten Shades of Samba colors) that I picked up. I don’t know why I waited so long to actually try it out. It isn’t as easy to apply as some of the other pencils in this line, but it still ends up looking nicer than many of Urban Decay’s 24-7 pencils. Sephora really nailed the formula on these!

Meow Cosmetics’ Black Friday

Meow Cosmetics’ Black Friday

Friday at 1:15 PM: Black with multicolored shimmer. Or more like, very dark charcoal with very sparse multicolored shimmer. The shimmer particles are sparse enough that you could use this as an all-over color without it looking too garish. (I don’t know how well this color would blend out, though, so don’t know if you could use it easily for a smoked-out eye.)

Meow Cosmetics’ Swagger blush

Meow Cosmetics’ Swagger blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: This can show up a bit too much if I’m not careful. It’s not a dark wine or something, but it is a darker red, and it’s pretty pigmented for a blush. It does blend…

Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Demure (105)

Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Demure (105)

Friday at 7:15 AM: Very sheer wash of color and a shine…neither of which stays around for very long, and definitely not through anything like eating, drinking, or even having a conversation. (Have I mentioned my utter disappointment with…

Beauty from the Earth’s Satin Sheets

Beauty from the Earth’s Satin Sheets

Thursday at 1:15 PM: A fairly standard non-bright, clear white satin. I can use it as a highlighter if I’m careful, and can use it as an all-over color if I foil it. (Dry application is too soft.) It…

Meow Cosmetics’ Virgin

Meow Cosmetics’ Virgin

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: The slightly warmer neutral-peach, a counterpart to Bitchy (which I showcased yesterday.) If you have gold undertones, you’re probably going to be happier with how Virgin looks rather than Bitchy, because this one will complement…

Zoya’s Serafina

Zoya’s Serafina

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: An attractive enough silver foil/microglitter…but it was a bit on the thin side. Three coats and I didn’t quite get complete coverage. Serafina seems a bit like Maria Luisa: it’s really best used as an…
