Sigil Inspired’s Reflection Catcher

Sigil Inspired’s Reflection Catcher

Posted on Thursday, at

This color is nice enough, the pigmentation is good, and there is a very soft duotone shimmer effect. But the vendor photos made the duotone look a bit more pronounced. (Even when the foiled swatch was still wet, I couldn’t see as much of the peach-gold shimmer.)

Color Club’s Element of Surprise

Color Club’s Element of Surprise

Posted on Wednesday, at

This color is simlar to China Glaze Pearl Jammin’ (of which I have several bottles.) But…I like Pearl Jammin’ much better. Element of Surprise is still not opaque after three coats! You can clearly see the nail line, and also those areas on my thumbnail where the polish fills...

Real Techniques’ Starter Set

Real Techniques’ Starter Set

Posted on Tuesday, at

This set didn’t change in composition when the whole Real Techniques line got a makeover. The only change is the case. The material color is different, and the corners are rounded. I like having five eye brushes of varying sizes - all in a collection-price, rather than $5 or more...

TKB Trading’s Dark Brown Oxide

TKB Trading’s Dark Brown Oxide

Posted on Monday, at

When applied dry, this is a blackened-brown that works very well as a liner. Mixed with water and applied wet, it dries to a medium-dark (almost a medium) that’s definitely brown - so I prefer to apply this one dry. (Usually with these oxides, I prefer to mix them...

Sephora’s Professionnel Airbrush Precision Foundation Brush

Sephora’s Professionnel Airbrush Precision Foundation Brush

Posted on Saturday, at

I use this more for finishing powder than for foundation; and I apply my (cream) foundation with my fingers. But the bristles are dense, giving the brush head enough body to smoothly and evenly apply cream products over wide areas. It does also work to apply powder products, but you’...

Maybelline’s ColorSensational Lipstick in Brown Blush (570)

Maybelline’s ColorSensational Lipstick in Brown Blush (570)

Posted on Friday, at

Originally I thought that this color would just be too brown. It’s more of a fig or muted plum shade, though! I like how it looks on me - a bit deeper than my natural lip color (even when I was a teenager), so it’s a bit elegant-looking,...

TKB Trading’s Blue Steel

TKB Trading’s Blue Steel

Posted on Thursday, at

Partway between a darkened navy and a blued charcoal. I like using this shade either as a liner or as an outer-crease shade with a cleaner smokey eye. It doesn’t have a blackened base, like some darker colors do - which is why I call it a “cleaner” smoky...

Zoya’s Presley

This went on a bit browner than I anticipated from the various swatch photos and videos that I saw online. It is still a light shade, a solidly opaque warm near-neutral. It’s just a bit more mauve than pink.

Maybelline’s FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter collection

Maybelline’s FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

These were the first FaceStudio highlighters that Maybelline released - and at first it was just Gold, Peach, and Topaz. Rose Gold was a slightly later addition. (Kind of surprising, since rose gold has been “the” color for makeup collections to have for the past four years.) All of these...

Shiro Cosmetics’ She Sells Seashells

Shiro Cosmetics’ She Sells Seashells

Posted on Monday, at

Could lean more yellow or brown, depending on your coloring and any other shades you’re wearing. The base is white, so if you’re looking for an under-brow highlight, this would probably be fairly good.
