LaurEss’ Casual Chic

LaurEss’ Casual Chic

Posted on Monday, at

I bought this during LaurEss' final days in 2015. I wanted to get as many of their mattes and satins as I could, since other indie vendors' mattes and satins didn't have the color payoff that I wanted or didn't work with the way that I apply my makeup. Casual Chic is one of the softer and less opaque colors, but it's an attractive enough shade - nearly neutral brown but not ashy, makes a nice subtly “professional” shadow for blending...

The color leans just a little rusty when applied dry, and is a brighter red when foiled. I wasn't able to get it to show the color depth that I saw in the pot, though the color was not softened or sheered out. It just…wasn't as saturated as it appeared. There is no blackening with this color.

Scaredy Cat Cosmetics’ Smooze

A clear periwinkle, rather than a greyed purpley slate. The shimmer is faint, and can hardly be seen when applied dry over primer. This color complements my blue-grey eyes very well! It pairs well with cooler or neutral browns, and looks brighter by comparison if worn with heathered shades.

Another eye and cheek kit, all in warmer neutrals. Citrine and Firelight can’t easily be used as anything other than eye colors (shadows, or highlights) and Sunkissed can work as a softer eyeshadow if it’s too deep or orange to use as a blusher.

Another eye and cheek kit - though Soft Focus Warmth could be either a face or an eye color, and Rose Radiance can be used as a pale blush on the lightest, fairest skintones. I picked up all of these colors separately. SF Dune and Rose Radiance are somewhat regularly used, and Soft Focus Warmth…a little less so. It works well as a softer eye color, but it isn’t something I’m in the habit of reaching for...

Stila’s Sparkle Waterproof Eyeliner in Bora Bora

Stila’s Sparkle Waterproof Eyeliner in Bora Bora

Posted on Saturday, at

I know that this color does not complement my eyes. I know this. So why do I reflexively reach for just about every eyeliner in this shade? On the upside, this applied very smoothly and evenly. I didn't have thin or bare spots, and I didn't have to go back over it. On the downside…this one was on the fragile side. This color is the most prone, of all of these Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Liners, to flake away. Granted,...
