BareMinerals’ Buxom Boo Ya

BareMinerals’ Buxom Boo Ya

Posted on Friday, at

This color has been discontinued…and it was one of my favorite shades in this lineup! (Actually, it looks like this whole lineup is being pared down…) Even though it leans orange and warmer, it isn’t so warm that I can’t wear it easily with most of the other colors that I generally put on. It is best for either spring or autumn, though, for me, because I’m more likely to grab coordinating shades during fall -...

One of the more opaque colors. It’s definitely orange with a pink interference shimmer, so if orange blushes don’t really complement your skintone, then this probably is NOT the face color for you.

I like ColourPop’s lippie stix, but I really like their sheer shades. I get color that doesn’t overwhelm the rest of my face! Whip is a cooler medium-deep rose. It looks purple as it comes out of the tube, but since it’s sheer, that color isn’t exactly what gets laid down.

I can use this as a smokey-eye color, and unlike some blackened shadows, the blue doesn't just sheer out or fall away. But a little definitely goes a long way! I have gotten into the habit of under-applying this color, then adding dots and touches to expand it, so that I don't end up looking like an escapee from a Robert Plant video from the 1980s.

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Lip Cream collection

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Lip Cream collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

These lip creams are…well, they’re good in some respects (ease of application, color range, ease of use, uniformly friendly finish, good color payoff) and not in others (staying power). They apply well, but they do tend to fade and transfer away fairly quickly. In that, they’re like other well-pigmented mid-price drugstore lipsticks. I got most of mine either in sets, or by using my Ulta points, so I didn’t quite pay full retail price for each...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Don’t Let Your Dreams Be Dreams

Shiro Cosmetics’ Don’t Let Your Dreams Be Dreams

Posted on Monday, at

Loses some of its intensity, compared to what I saw in the pot. I don’t know if that’s due to the shimmer finish, or another cause…but the green color ends up being similar to BareMinerals’ Key Lime.
