Zoya’s Oceane

Zoya’s Oceane

Posted on Wednesday, at

This is a very intense, saturated, lovely color of blue. On the site, it looks more teal-ish and is described as “turquoise”. Well..some turquoise does come in this shade of blue, though most is a little grenner (because of the exact mineral content) so to others’ eyes this could...

BareMinerals’ Box of Wonders kit

BareMinerals’ Box of Wonders kit

Posted on Tuesday, at

The “massive sampler” holiday kit (there is no kit comparable to Wealth of Beauty or Bells and Whistles, both of which had fullsize items.) This can be a good gift for someone who wants to try out BareMinerals. It may not be a great gift if someone already has a...

TKB Trading’s Up The Hill

TKB Trading’s Up The Hill

Posted on Monday, at

An autumnal accent that looks warm-leaning, but isn’t so warm-leaning that I (neutral-cool coloring) have trouble wearing it. It has orange tones, so it complements and intensifies my blue-grey eye color.

This color looks more like a purple shimmer in the vendor photos. There are definite purple tones to it at certain angles - but the purple recedes or softens a bit at other angles. I’ve been able to use this as a near-neutral accent shade (like Meow’s Stripped...

Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick in Nonsense

Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick in Nonsense

Posted on Friday, at

The color’s a little deeper than the mauve-roses I reach for…which is good, because I need some more-saturated colors that are just a little darker than my go-to shade. There’s even what looks like very faint hints of gold highlights or a faint gold overlay.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Crimm Grunk Garlic Cleas

Shiro Cosmetics’ Crimm Grunk Garlic Cleas

Posted on Thursday, at

More charcoal than navy-sparkle. This is not a glitterbomb, though. (It probably can be, if you pack it on/apply it over a sticky base.) I haven’t figured out the best way to use this yet, in looks that I generally wear…but I like the blue-green cast to...

Color Club’s Cash Only

Color Club’s Cash Only

Posted on Wednesday, at

For whatever reason or series of reasons, this polish was the easiest to find available from etailers and even Color Club itself, a full year after the release of the collection. (This worked out well for me, because it’s my favorite polish from the collection.) It’s opaque on...

Meow Cosmetics’ Evergleam collection

Meow Cosmetics’ Evergleam collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

Meow’s Evergleam and Shiro’s Cozy and Bright have a lot of overlap. I don’t think it’s conscious, other the fact that the overall color palette is something that’s been done before (obviously, because Meow pulled their inspiration from past Christmases.) The shades in Evergleam are...

Love Hues’ Mystery

Love Hues’ Mystery

Posted on Monday, at

The description for this seemed to indicate that it would be more of a purplish-brown. It’s a fairly straightforward medium-light base shade with a fairly strong pearl finish. I try and use colors like this - both this color-weight and the superstrong pearl finish - as a liner beneath...
