Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Clockwork Train

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Clockwork Train

Posted on Monday, at

The shimmer finish on this color is sparse enough and soft enough to pretty easily buff away, if you only want the base color (or don’t want any shimmer.)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Iris Blue (35)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Iris Blue (35)

I love this blue! I can see how it might be intimidating for some, especially now that neutrals are on the rise…but it is so lovely. The color payoff is excellent, and there almost looks like there’s a pinkish flash atop the periwinkle base color.

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Rayezor

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Rayezor

This color leans a little orange. It’s almost the color of the clay that I worked with in my high school arts class. The product itself isn’t clayey, but the color kind of is! It’s warm enough on me that I can’t grab it any day and wear it with anything I own. It’s not quite an autumnal shade, but I can’t really wear it with cool colors (makeup or clothing) or it will...

Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Daringly Nude (655)

Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Daringly Nude (655)

The dry application of this color (which is, be reminded, straight mica with no binders) is a nearly semi-translucent medium-deep leaf green with scattered green-gold sparkle. The wet application looks almost metallic. The shadow leans yellow due to the finish, so I have some problems wearing it well. I have to make sure to use it with deeper true neutral colors, so that it pulls cooler.

CND’s Vinylux Hand Fired (228)

Posted on Wednesday, at

The bottle pictures of this collection make Hand Fired look…much more orange than it is. Trust me, folks, it’s a brick-red foil. It leans a little warm for a red, but not extremely warm.

My Pretty Zombie’s mNg Trio

My Pretty Zombie’s mNg Trio

Posted on Tuesday, at

The owner of the company got a request to create an eyeshadow: pink with a green or blue interference layer. She came up with three options…and couldn’t decide which one she liked best. Neither could the person who requested them - she liked them all! So they all stayed in the My Pretty Zombie inventory. (As of about a year ago - December 2014 - all three eyeshadows were available. Currently - January 2017 - only the first two are...
