Saturday Soundtrack: Use Well The Days (Annie Lennox)

Saturday Soundtrack: Use Well The Days (Annie Lennox)

Posted on Saturday, at

Even though September has been a fairly shit month, I’m trying to pay attention to the things that I’ve accomplished. I’ve gotten the site about 90% migrated. I’ve started saving up for another trip to DragonCon. I finished painting another room in my house. I harangued my...

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Vamp lip cream in Leading Lady

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Vamp lip cream in Leading Lady

Posted on Friday, at

I got this lip color at a major discount. If I hadn’t, I don’t know that I would have bothered - I don’t generally wear bold lip colors, and this one is an extremely intense shade. I did wear this for 5 hours one day, to see how...

The base is almost semisheer. The aqua interference more than makes up for that! It’s pretty solid. This could make an interesting effects-shadow over a deep or intense colored base…just make sure it isn’t something that will clash with aqua!

Posted on Monday, at

Could possibly be a near-neutral for some skintones (mine included). Pretty solid color payoff and good adhesion…and sadly, it’s a Color You Can’t Have, because Sobe Botanicals seemed to just quietly fold some time back in 2015. I think that Shiro has something similar currently in their lineup.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Farore’s Wind

Shiro Cosmetics’ Farore’s Wind

Posted on Thursday, at

The color looked like it might have been a brighter shade, almost a candied green...but the color payoff was not as strong as I've come to expect from other Shiro shadows. (Perhaps because this was one of Shiro's first eyeshadows?)
