Milani Cosmetics’ Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in Moon Glow

Milani Cosmetics’ Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in Moon Glow

Posted on Sunday, at

All of the highlighters in this collection are very similar: a sheer beige or tan base with a smooth silver, gold, or copper shimmer. I don’t know how these would look on deeper skintones, but on my fair skin the base shade disappears and the shimmer is extremely subtle...

NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liquid Liner in Brown

NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liquid Liner in Brown

Posted on Sunday, at

Not a thrilling color…unless you eagerly snag every brown eyeliner that comes along because black is Not Your Best Friend. I don’t know that I’d buy this one again simply because of color preference. The application, formula, and longevity are the same as the rest of the...

Zoya’s Mai

Zoya’s Mai

Posted on Saturday, at

I initially bought no colors from this collection. Then, when I went back for Sedona, I decided to get Mai as well. The color sits between pink and red - it’s a rosy shade, but it’s deeper than most spring colors, it isn’t as vivid as summer...

NYX Cosmetics’ Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Sapphire

NYX Cosmetics’ Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Sapphire

Posted on Saturday, at

This color isn’t kidding with the “bright” description. It’s not a neon, but it does come close. It’s a lovely blue - I wish that this was available in a more durable, longer-lasting formula. This will stay put for the whole day only if I a) apply...

Colourpop’s BFF Liquid Liner in Crzy

Colourpop’s BFF Liquid Liner in Crzy

Posted on Friday, at

A deep navy-denim felt tip liquid liner. It’s darker than Blue Ya Mind mascara - I’m not sure why they didn’t try for a better match between these two, since they kept pairing them up on the site. The felt tip lets me have a bit more...

Aromaleigh v2’s Lumine highlighter

Aromaleigh v2’s Lumine highlighter

Posted on Thursday, at

A cooler red with a soft pearl finish that is very sheer, and not easily buildable. It doesn’t quite work on its own - for me - as a highlighter; I have used it over another highlighter color to get an intensified color payoff. It can also warm up...

Colourpop’s Lippie Stix in Ellarie

Colourpop’s Lippie Stix in Ellarie

Posted on Thursday, at

So many Lippie Stix colors rotate in and out of the lineup…but this is one of the earliest colors I remember, and while it goes out of stock, it always comes back. It’s a deep red that, if it has cool tones, they’re faint - so people...

Color Club’s Seas The Day

Color Club’s Seas The Day

Posted on Wednesday, at

Despite the vendor art that makes this look like a blue-green, this is more of a saturated medium turquoise. The formula is just a touch on the thicker side - it self-levels, but it takes a bit longer to cure, so it’s really easy for the second coat to...

Sally Hansen’s Be Iconic (062)

Sally Hansen’s Be Iconic (062)

Posted on Wednesday, at

A soft but not bright pastel purple that could look very joyfully elegant…if it didn’t have such a thin and watery formula. Two coats gave me spotty coverage that was opaque in some places, a whisper of color in others, and emphasized the texture of my nails. I’...

Makeup Revolution’s Maxi Reloaded Palette in Monster Mattes

Makeup Revolution’s Maxi Reloaded Palette in Monster Mattes

Posted on Tuesday, at

This kit contains 45 matte shadows in a rainbow of shades, mostly more saturated shades with a few brighter shades. There are a few soft shades, and a handful of neutrals, as well as some deeper, almost-autumnal colors. It’s a good complement, shade-wise, to both Dream Big and Large It...
