ColourPop’s Crème Gel Liner in Timber

ColourPop’s Crème Gel Liner in Timber

Posted on Saturday, at

This color was part of the original Crème Gel Liner and Color collections. It applies well and stays put for quite a few hours, even without the use of a primer. (Want it to stay all day? Use a primer.) This is a little darker than some of the grey liners out there, not as dark as some of the “dark charcoal” shades.

So while this year has been utter garbage, we all need to concentrate on the good bits, to keep ourselves sane and rejuvenated for the long haul of idiocy ahead. Also, because - as this shit-spackled muppet fart of a year* has reminded us again and again - hold tight to your memories and experiences, because people can leave you without warning.

Lost in Makeupland’s Xian-pu

Lost in Makeupland’s Xian-pu

When applied, this color lost a bit of the intensity I saw in the pot. I was expecting something pretty saturated, but I got a “faded-denim” vibe instead. Which isn’t necessarily bad…unless the color seen in the pot, that near-neon purple-blue, is what people really wanted.

Polish Me Silly’s Truth or Dare

Polish Me Silly’s Truth or Dare

Posted on Wednesday, at

I kind of wish that Truth or Dare had slightly more of a visible color-morph/multichrome effect than it does…but I can always see at least two colors on any of my nails, regardless of the light angle, so it’s more colorful than some multichrome polishes in my collection. It’s also a two-coater.

BareMinerals’ Buxom Lipgloss Roulette

BareMinerals’ Buxom Lipgloss Roulette

Posted on Tuesday, at

This kit was a great way to either get a bunch of mini Buxoms for yourself, or to get and use as several stocking stuffers. This was released the holiday after the lineup revamp, so even if you’d eagerly bought every lip polish and lip cream available before late spring 2014, you could still get 8 of the new colors. (If you hadn’t exercised any restraint…well, nothing in here was limited edition, and everything was part of the regular...

The base shade might be found in many other eyeshadow palettes…but without the faint green satin/pearl finish. I love wearing this as an “everyday”/work-safe non-neutral. I’m just sorry that it’s been discontinued!

A very pretty color!...with less-than-great color payoff. The wet application looks fairly even, but the dry application was a bit patchy.

Pardon the dust; I’m migrating

Pardon the dust; I’m migrating

Posted on Sunday, at

This year, I did not do the Beauty Blog Advent Calendar. I will host it again next year; but this year, there was just too much going on. This autumn I broke my ankle, moved into a new house, visited my mom after she went into the hospital with a fairly serious - but ultimately recoverable - condition. I packed my apartment while on crutches…I did it successfully, and without having to ask for much assistance; but it’s...

ColourPop’s Crème Gel Liner in Overboard

ColourPop’s Crème Gel Liner in Overboard

Posted on Saturday, at

Gorgeous, smooth-applying, well pigmented…this is one of my favorite eyeliners from ColourPop. (BrewHaHa is one of my others, because I’m a sucker for blackened browns.) I think this was added to the lineup after the original launch of the Creme Gel Liner Sticks.
