BlogWideWeb Linkup: February 2016

Sunday at 12:03 AM: For a while now I’ve been missing the regularly-updating blog listing widgets that used to be a near-staple on so many websites. It was a great way to get an idea of blogs that were liked by the person whose blog you were currently reading! A picture, a snippet from the most recent entry, a link directly to that entry, a timestamp so you’d be alerted if the blog hadn’t updated in a few months…it was great! Social media allows…

BareMinerals’ Glory blush

BareMinerals’ Glory blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: The base color is softened a LOT by the pearl finish - which is less “reflective” than “softening/dampening.” The color would be too brown for me to use as a face color, if not for the finish. Then again, if not for the finish, I could possibly use this as a super-light contouring/shadowing powder. The finish softens the base color too much for that, for me. (It works on my eyes, though.)

Too Faced’s Melted Liquid Lipstick in Jelly Donut

Too Faced’s Melted Liquid Lipstick in Jelly Donut

Friday at 7:15 AM: I love the color of this! I like the shade, it looks good on me. But…you know what stinks? The color doesn’t last. It doesn’t really stain. And it does fade away after about an hour or less. For a product that was so highly lauded, I expected better performance. At least the color should stain. Maybe just a little bit? Not even the deeper shades? No? ...meh.

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Tomoe

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Tomoe

Thursday at 10:15 AM: Leans just barely cool, but overall this is nearly a “neutral” purple - neither overtly warm (no red undertones) nor overtly cool (no blue undertones). The color looks a little darker applied, than it does…

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Gwenllian

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Gwenllian

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Attractive softer green with what look like faint red-pink highlights in the top layer. I wish that the pearl finish wasn’t quite so strong - it almost eclipses the base color.

Color Club’s Fingers Crossed

Color Club’s Fingers Crossed

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: This was one of the four “near-neutral” shades in the latest wave of Halo Hues colors. There’s a bit of pale gold in the predominantly silver base color, but also blue flashes at certain angles…

CND’s Vinylux Art Vandal collection

CND’s Vinylux Art Vandal collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Brighter primaries. That’s the best way I can think of, to describe this collection: not pastels (thank goodness), not florals, not neons. Not quite primaries, either. So, brighter primaries. Two are metallic, one is a…

BareMinerals’ Ticket to Gorgeous kit

BareMinerals’ Ticket to Gorgeous kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: When this kit did hit the BE webstore, I already owned all of these colors. Still, some of them had showed up only briefly in this or that kit, so for newer collectors it was…

Mattese Elite’s Kaleidescope

Mattese Elite’s Kaleidescope

Monday at 10:15 AM: Rich brown with good pigmentation and a lovely color, and a solid duotone shimmer layer. Works as an all-over color, but also works very well as a liner. This isn’t the deepest color from the…
