ColourPop’s Gone Coastal collection

ColourPop’s Gone Coastal collection

All of these are sheer - they’ve got some color payoff, but for folks who like reds and purples but don’t routinely go Full Vamp, these were fantastic colors. (I say “were” because as of this writeup date, almost all of the sheers have vanished from ColourPop’s Lippie Stix. I have no idea if they’ll be back.) I think I remember getting this kit on sale for $25 - which is essentially a “buy five, get one...

Shiro Cosmetics’ See If This Golf Cart Floats

This is almost a very cool medium-light pink. I have similar-ish colors from other vendors, but I think that the others are satin or pearl finishes. Similar to You Want These Lumps, but a little warmer and a smidge lighter.

There’s a little bit of shimmer, but it’s subtle enough - especially when contrasted with the base color - that it’s barely worth mentioning. This is most definitely NOT a glitterbomb. I don’t know how well it would work as a highlighter, but it has the advantage of being on the “white/light” spectrum but not being overly bright…so it might work.

There’s a gold duotone to this color that I couldn’t catch on film. It’s not as strong as the same effect in BE’s Trust or Champagne, but it’s definitely visible.

It doesn’t mix well with water, but it behaves a little bit better than Nerve Tonic. It applies decently over a primer, but it needs something to grab on to, or it just falls away. The shade reminds me of Aromaleigh v1’s Carolina Summer - not because there was a duplicate in that collection, but just because it would fit with that general palette.

Girly Bits’ Fairies Wear Boots

Girly Bits’ Fairies Wear Boots

Posted on Wednesday, at

A tribute to Black Sabbath. Medium purplish-charcoal base color with rainbow holographics and larger (though still pretty small) blue hexagonal sparkle. I thought this would have a deeper base color than it does - it was described as being black, not charcoal (and definitely not purplish.)

My Pretty Zombie’s Offal Group collection

My Pretty Zombie’s Offal Group collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

Three cooler eyeshadows (no matte finishes, thankfully), a cooler red blush and lip color. My Pretty Zombie is releasing new collections more this past year than in 2015 or 2014, and it’s kind of nice to see the new toys. The Offal Group colors probably are not a great choice for warmer olive- or golden- undertones.
