One of the first colors I picked up from this collection. It's a great daily shade for me - the color is subtle, and it does actually stain so it doesn't need touchups every 30 minutes or so. (The stain isn't as long-lasting as the original Balmstains from Revlon, but...well, 3 hours is a pretty good length of time for something that costs about a quarter as much as the Revlon Colorburst Balmstains.)
There are faint fuchsia tones in this…that I can't tell if they're in the base color, or somehow the result of the very slight iridescence overlaying the barely-warm purple base color. Either way, it's interesting.
<h4>Today's Featured Site(s): ...everybody!</h4> <p>And by that, I mean "all 24 sites that I've featured in this year's BBAC." Rather than try and pick one favorite, or add yet another on to a day when (realistically) not many people are going to be reading, I thought it would be great to re-list everyone who's been featured. These folks blog about beauty, makeup, nails, fashion, style...it's all over the map. But what connects all...
This is definitely an effects-coat. It's sheer, barely tinted, it has a nice enough finish, but…there's no visible color to speak of. It looks cool over deep, dark blues, blacks, greys, browns, or reds. I haven't tried it over golds or oranges. I'd imagine it looks good over deeper violet cremes, too. Even when applying several coats, though, all I saw was the pearl, no blue tint.
The brighter of the two purples added to the CSM lineup in Fall 2014. I am more drawn to Fee Fi Fo Plum - it doesn't look quite so Easter-Eggy. The formula is fine, and if you're a fan of deeper medium-bright purples this is a great shade to pick up. And yay, it isn't limited-edition!!
I found some glitter gradient tutorials online, including several at <a href=“http://www.lucysstash.com/p/how-totutorials.html” target=“_blank”>Lucy's Stash</a> (though I tend to prefer written-with-text as opposed to video, at least I can see how things are done in the video and even take it apart to build my own pic-tutorial.) The ones I preferred were using small-particle glitter (because I don't own any large particle glitter, and didn't really want to go...
