ColourPop’s Staycation collection

ColourPop’s Staycation collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

I didn’t buy this collection as a collection…I’ve bought the colors individually over time. When this was marked down to $25, then you effectively got one free lippie. Other than that, unless you knew that you were in love with all of the colors (all of which were...

Fyrinnae’s Innocent Sorrow

Fyrinnae’s Innocent Sorrow

Posted on Monday, at

Pigmented enough to stand on its own, but light enough and reflective enough to make a good highlighter…if applied sparingly. This exact shade is a little too yellow for me to use as a standalone color and wear it easily with other shades that look good on me. But...

Fyrinnae’s Tasmanian Devil

Posted on Monday, at

There’s a softened blue-pearl finish on this one that throws back some light, but doesn’t completely cover the base shade. I have seen similar shades from other indie companies - maybe not exact matches, but close in the ballpark. (Though if they have a pearl finish, it doesn’...

Fyrinnae’s Baby Beluga

Fyrinnae’s Baby Beluga

Posted on Thursday, at

I was lucky enough to get this and a handful of other shadows when they were re-released briefly in early summer of 2017. Baby Beluga was at one point (I think) called Beluga Whale. It’s a pale greyed blue - or a pale cool grey. It depends on the lighting,...

Zoya’s August

Zoya’s August

Posted on Wednesday, at

This is almost the exact color of wet cement! The formula was a little on the thicker side, and tended to want to hang on to brushstrokes - not too usual to see in a creme polish. The coverage was good, though, and the nail polish is pretty durable. I’...

Meow Cosmetics’ Mayhem Mattes collection

Meow Cosmetics’ Mayhem Mattes collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

When Meow’s new matte collections came out, I was…dubious. The brighter color palette was somewhat interesting, but I was more concerned with the shadows themselves. Meow’s matte formula applies well if you use some kind of mixing medium (water, alcohol, whatever) but applied dry, even over a...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Mlem

Shiro Cosmetics’ Mlem

Posted on Monday, at

The second June COTM from Shiro. Both Blep and Mlem are fairly standard shades that have close cousins in just about any eyeshadow lineup, but these both have Shiro’s typical smooth application and solid color payoff. When I applied it without any mixing medium, the shadow wanted to look...

My Pretty Zombie’s Brain Salt

My Pretty Zombie’s Brain Salt

Posted on Monday, at

One of the two warmer colors in the Vintage Pharmacy collection…and the stronger performer of the two. The finish is mostly matte, though there’s a little bit of what looks like it could be light-ish shimmer. The application was decent, though deeper skintones will possibly want to wear...
