Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Clover Green (40)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Clover Green (40)

Posted on Friday, at

I originally was not sure that I wanted this color, or Nile Green. I’m glad I ended up grabbing this one, and not just because the Long Lasting Shadow Stick collection has severely reduced. The shade works very well with my coloring, and is a brighter pop of color...

Bite Beauty’s Multistick in Nectar

Bite Beauty’s Multistick in Nectar

Posted on Thursday, at

I really wanted this shade…and I was hesitant about getting this shade. I’m one of those odd folks who looks fairly good in purple and cooler red blushes, but I just wasn’t certain. (I had an awful time finding swatch photos of this one.) I finally gave...

Sally Hansen’s Rise Up (028)

Sally Hansen’s Rise Up (028)

Posted on Wednesday, at

The gold is very faint in this color - more like a pale wash than a distinctly visible top layer. As with the other Mega Strength polishes, the formula is a little on the thin side. I feel like I would have gotten a little more color saturation had I...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Draconid

Shiro Cosmetics’ Draconid

Posted on Monday, at

One of two colors of the month for October, along with Orionid. Shiro had quite a few celestial-themed colors: Sunshower, Fire Rainbow Clouds, Still Not A Planet, and more. There were two COTM color-duos that dealt with celestial events. This pair was named for the Draconid and Orionid meteor showers...

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Cocoa

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Cocoa

Posted on Friday, at

This is a fairly standard medium brown eyeliner. The scattered gold shimmer adds some nice visual accents and catches the light, while the base shade gives definition that’s more visible than a grey but not as visually harsh (on lighter skintones, anyway) as a black. This color applied a...

Revlon’s Ultra Volume Waterproof Mascara

Revlon’s Ultra Volume Waterproof Mascara

Posted on Thursday, at

I am overall underwhelmed with Revlon’s “one mascara fits all” lineup. The formulas clump, they take a long time to cure, there’s a lot of transfer, and even the waterproof versions flake a bit. This mascara is supposed to provide volume. It…sort of does. This is two...
