Brown with cool dusty purple undertones. Not deep enough to be easily used as a liner shade, though you could probably get some interesting liner effects if you layered this over a dark liquid or gel liner.

Low color payoff and rather sparse sparkle-particles (similar to the gold sparkle in Unity.) This isn't as sheer as Bare Escentuals' Faith - which is so very sheer that, once applied, you have to take it on faith that the color is actually there - but it doesn't have much pigmentation.

This almost seems to have a metallic finish to it. The main color is a soft taupe (PinkSith, if you don't already have this color, you might want to check it out…) that's a very slightly cool shade - so people with overtly warm skintones might not like how this looks with their coloring. It's got a good level of pigmentation, it applies just as it appears in the pot with the cool undertones showing a little more when foiled.

Applies a little lighter than expected, based on how this color looks in the pot. It applies with more overtly visible brown than red. It's almost a counterpoint to Blood and Guts, from the Zombie Girl collection. (Though wearing both at the same time…I don't know that it would work too well on paler-skinned folks, unless they were balanced with white or neutral shades. You might end up with a faux-consumptive look…)

Random Thoughts for Friday, July 29

Maybe you've noticed how I say, for certain items, that I'll buy them again…but only through e-tailers because the containers aren't sealed? Okay - so here's another horror story of sorts. I went to a nearby drugstore and was eyeballing their L'Oreal Infallible colors because I wanted to get a few more. And the salesperson comes up to me and mentions how I want cool colors, not warm. Then she pulls a tube down off the display, takes off...

Sleek Makeup’s Sunset i-Divine Palette

Sleek Makeup’s Sunset i-Divine Palette

Posted on Thursday, at

Sirvinya sent me my first Sleek palettes as gifts. Then I hit the site and bought myself several…and this was one of them My favorite colors in this palette are the cardinal-red shimmer (Upper-3), the burgundy shimmer (Lower-1), the pink-tan duochrome shimmer (Lower 5) and the pink-gold shimmer (Lower 6). The colors seem a little softer than some of the other Sleek palettes I’ve used. I don’t know if this is because of the age of this palette, or...

Concrete Minerals’ Alice Collection kit

Concrete Minerals’ Alice Collection kit

Posted on Thursday, at

The last “kit” introduced on the Etsy store before the entire outfit relaunched on its own domain. I think this was in the second order I placed with Concrete Minerals. I wasn’t too sure about the pale blue shade (Daydream); but the red (Hearts) and the brown (Mad Hatter) definitely looked interesting! By buying these four colors together in a kit I saved a bit of money, so that didn’t hurt at all. (Saving money is always good....
