CND’s Vinylux Mystic Slate (258)

CND’s Vinylux Mystic Slate (258)

Posted on Wednesday, at

I liked this color the instant I saw it in the promo photos! It’s a greyed blue that, to me, looks like a color you might find in someone’s beach house. A solid color, clear, and aged rather than worn down. The color is darker than the bottle...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Cozy and Bright collection

Shiro Cosmetics’ Cozy and Bright collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

These were formulated as eyeshadows, but they also work as highlighters. The palette is almost a range of neutrals…but not quite. There’s a mix of finishes. When I swatched them, I found that most were opaque enough for eyeshadows, though two of them - The Snow Can’t...

The frost finish makes this color almost a pale brown-white, on application. When not in direct light, it looks a bit closer to its base color…but the finish still lightens it quite a bit.

The pearl finish moves this more toward the “pastel-ish” end of the rose spectrum. The finish doesn’t buff or blend away too much - I don’t get the color that I see in the pot, no matter what I try. It is nice to have a softer pink,...

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Red lip cream in Knock Out

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Red lip cream in Knock Out

Posted on Friday, at

A little bit warm, but not really red-orange. I got this color on sale, and while it isn’t quite as interse a shade as Candy Apple, it’s close. Not sure how often I will wear this shade, though if I go over it with finishing powder that might...

This is such a great color! It’s almost indigo, but isn’t quite blue enough. It’s got a very solid color payoff. There is a little staining, but you can avoid that by using a cream base or primer.

Halfway between “pool-queue chalk” and a cool sapphire. This does stain a bit, so make sure you use a base, like a cream shadow or shadow pencil. Like all of the Pop colors, it has ingredients to increase longevity and make application easier, so while I still would use a...

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Divas and Dramas collection

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Divas and Dramas collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

The Dramatica colors (which are apparently repromotes from a previous year’s Halloween collection) remind me a bit of Aromaleigh’s old Bete Noire colors: they’re very definitely blackened, and make amazing eyeliners. The final six colors in this collection are based off of the colorshifting Premiums - which...

LaurEss’ Remembrance

LaurEss’ Remembrance

Posted on Monday, at

This is almost a neutral brown. The frost finish isn’t quite smooth enough to be a pearl finish, but it doesn’t really block too much of the base shade. I don’t know that I have too many other browns like this, even with all of the browns...
