Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Vacancy

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Vacancy

Saturday at 7:15 AM: One of the best performers from the Ten collection! This pencil is very pigmented, very easy to apply. Unfortunately for me, it isn’t my favorite color ever. (Bright blue right near greyed-blue eyes…not the world’s best liner-shade choice.)

BareMinerals’ Faux Tan Matte face color

BareMinerals’ Faux Tan Matte face color

Friday at 10:15 AM: I use this primarily for softer contouring - what little that I do. I learned the trick of using this as a cheek and facial contour, and stocked up. It’s useful, minimal fuss, and I get a very subtle effect (rather than a full-on catwalk-model sculpted-face contouring.)

Wet n Wild’s Megaslicks Balm Stain in Coral of the Story

Wet n Wild’s Megaslicks Balm Stain in Coral of the Story

Friday at 7:15 AM: Not my favorite shade, but for folks who love orange and orange-leaning balms and stains, this is a great lip item! It’s also part of the permanent collection, not limited - you’ll be able to find this wherever Megaslicks Balm Stains are sold.

My Pretty Zombie’s THC

My Pretty Zombie’s THC

Thursday at 10:15 AM: Rich but not vivid violet with a nicely strong aqua-blue interference layer. This is an amped-up version of MPZ’s THC blush (which I also have, and love.) The blush is less opaque, and the base…

Black Rose Minerals’ Sinister Urge

Black Rose Minerals’ Sinister Urge

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Another colorchanger! This one looks good on me because the base color is faded, but it leans a bit greener and there’s a little more depth than similar shades in my collection.

Color Club’s Editorial

Color Club’s Editorial

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: I was glad to get my hands on this - a duochrome that gave full coverage in just two coats -=and=- didn’t cost arond $20 a bottle? The coloring isn’t quite as rich and varied…

CND’s Vinylux Rouge Rite (197)

CND’s Vinylux Rouge Rite (197)

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: Not quite oxblood, but that depth of color. Just not brown-ish. A really strong red! It did stain my cuticles a bit, and I had to do a bit more work to clean of my…

CND’s Vinylux Contradictions collection

CND’s Vinylux Contradictions collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: The overall palette reminds me of Modern Folklore: vampy reds, some deep dusky blues, a darker purple. There are a mix of finishes and textures, though…and two lighter colors: a pink, and a gilded-silver. I…

BareMinerals’ Lucky in Love kit

BareMinerals’ Lucky in Love kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: Buttercream and red-plum seem to get paired up often in the BE universe. Specifically, these two eyeshadows. Which were also paired in the I Love BE and the Be True kit. (Someone probably also latched…

BareMinerals’ Pebbled Beach

BareMinerals’ Pebbled Beach

Monday at 10:15 AM: A mixture of Pebble and Nude Beach (kind of indicated by the name…) It’s a slightly ashy cream-beige with soft buff-brown pearl finish, and - nice for a lighter BE neutral - it has excellent…
