ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Peacocky

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Peacocky

I am not a giant fan of bright red lipsticks. I don’t like how they look on me, even if they complement my coloring. I think it’s an issue of personal comfort zone more than anything else. This is a brighter deep red, but it’s sheer, so I get the color that I like without the intensity that I personally find offputting.

The pearl finish softens the base shade a lot, and the color can’t really be blended out much. It’s an attractive color even with the softening effect, though.

This is a very saturated blue. It’s also a bit on the brighter side. It works well for me as a liner and an accent shade, but if I try using it all over my lid it would overwhelm any other color I attempt to use. The color is pretty pigmented, and I don’t need to use much to get solid coverage.

I didn’t realize that this was a seasonal collection, but…yep, seasonal availability. First sold in late July or August 2016, the 8-color collection was mostly blues with two neutrals and one blush. Satin finishes on all but Acid Wash, which is almost a scattered-shimmer finish.

This is a pretty neutral “true” lighter yellow. It’s richer Brazilian, but both are about the same color depth. Bare Legs - also from the Joys of Summer collection - is a much darker gold. Cami is a close color match for BE’s Playful, but Cami applies much more smoothly.

Sephora’s Contour Gel Eyeliner in Center Sage

This is the easiest-applying of the gel liner pencils that I have. (This is also the newest pencil that I have. There may be a correlation.) The color works really well with my eye color - which surprised me, since many greens are either too bright, or too dark. While they look nice, they don’t complement my eye color as well as this particular shade.

I ordered this thinking, oh, a nicer soft “neutral"ish shade. It’s a softer non-pastel rose base color with less-than-perfectly-even coverage. The gold duotone, which is more of scattered shimmer than a solid duotone layer, is a nice accent. It’s enough to highlight, but not enough to look like a shimmer.

Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Pop

Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Pop

When looking at the Sculpted Cheeks set, this color caught my attention first. I worried that it would be a nearly-invisible shade, and if I use a softer, more diffuse brush (like the one that came with the set, ironically enough) I can barely tell where the product has been laid down. If I use a denser brush, I can actually see the color.
