Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Hallowed Ground

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Hallowed Ground

Posted on Thursday, at

In the pot, and in certain lights when foiled, there's the faintest hint of a pinkish shimmer - but it's very faint. The base color is similar to BareMinerals' Jasmine Tea, but with a bit more pigmentation.

BBAC 2013, Day 25: Favorite holiday recipes

BBAC 2013, Day 25: Favorite holiday recipes

Posted on Tuesday, at

The winter holidays have already come and gone (well, in the northern hemisphere they're the "winter" holidays) so these recipes will be useful either five months from now, or eleven. I'd imagine that everyone's tired, stuffed, happy, and Done With Cooking for the year. (Until next week we'll all keep the takeaway places doing a brisk business. Either that, or make sure that we don't start off the new year with a fridge full of leftovers.) <ul> <li...

Sleek Makeup’s Sparkle 2 i-Divine Palette

Sleek Makeup’s Sparkle 2 i-Divine Palette

Posted on Tuesday, at

This is kind of, but not quite, a “sequel” to the Sparkle palette. 2/3 of the colors are sparkle-finish, the other four shades are metallic…and six of the colors are actually repromotes from the first Sparkle palette. The formula seems to be similar, but the color payoff and texture in the Sparkle 2 palette is just slightly better. I noticed this most in Gold Ribbon and Tinsel, a pair of plush metallics. Sirvinya picked this up for me and brought it...

BareMinerals’ Buxom Full-Bodied Lip Gloss collection

BareMinerals’ Buxom Full-Bodied Lip Gloss collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

Buxoms in shimmer and gloss finish…without the tingle. (And the bottles are slightly different shape and height than either the original Buxoms, or the Lip Creams.) Again, as with the Lip Creams, I don’t have many of these (only two), and probably won’t be getting many more. They apply fine, the colors are semisheer, there’s a decent range of colors, they last as long as the original Buxoms, and they cost the same as the ones...

Urban Decay’s Black Market 24-7 Glide On Pencil kit

Urban Decay’s Black Market 24-7 Glide On Pencil kit

I love Urban Decay’s 24-7 pencils. I usually love their pencil sets, whether fullsize or travel size. But…this one kind of shocked me. I didn’t love it. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that I would not re-buy it. Well, this is a first.

BBAC 2013, Day 24: My beauty backlog is down by two thirds

BBAC 2013, Day 24: My beauty backlog is down by two thirds

Posted on Monday, at

Part of that drop is because I bought less - so as I photographed items, I was adding to the backlog…but I wasn't adding as quickly as in 2010, 2011, or 2012. (Being unemployed for just over a quarter will do that to you. Well…that, and already owning the majority of your favorite indies' inventories.) But the big reason is that I made myself a schedule and - for the most part - stuck to it. I actually started this schedule...
