Meow Cosmetics’ Acid Wash

Meow Cosmetics’ Acid Wash

Posted on Thursday, at

This is almost a green. (I also remember acid-washed jeans being kind of yellowed, not greenish…but, eh. Anyway.) The shimmer finish that appears in the pot is very minimized when I apply this. It’s not a matte, but the color payoff is as solid as any of Meow’s Feliner shades.

This was launched in late fall/early winter, so some of the colors are vampier than I generally wear. I instantly fell in love with Cami and Baewatch. Parker is a little on the warm side, but with the right clothes and makeup (ie, not a predominance of cooler jeweltones) it looks really nice on me.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Drop Mentos in the Soda Fountain

Shiro Cosmetics’ Drop Mentos in the Soda Fountain

Some hints of gold-ish tones in this one, but not enough to push it definitely out of “neutral” territory. I’m not sure what this color was intended to be (anyone have any ideas?) so I can’t steer folks toward the Shiro color that might be most similar. But this one was pretty neutral and a bit ashy. The gold hints all come in the finish, and light reflecting off if it…and they’re extremely minimal.

This was released into the sandbox in time for Halloween 2016. It’s a mixture of several COTM colors from the past year: Scarlet Witch, The Last Unicorn, Hawaii So Serious?, and It’s FuriOsa, Not FurioSAH. (I only have that last shade.) This can almost be seen as more of a red-leaning brown with a fairly heavy pearl-shimmer finish. I did get a little fallout from this one after applying. A sealant isn’t required, but if you don’t...

March 2017: And we’re (still) moving

March 2017: And we’re (still) moving

Posted on Sunday, at

I’d forgotten just how whimsical and lyrical The SheSpace‘s eyeshadow names were. Bit by Glitz. Broken Wings. Be The Fairytale. Crystal Wind. Dazzle Dance. Vampires Tap Dancing. Snow White’s Dark Side. Inhale Sunshine. Moonlight and Miracles. Gin Fizz and a Phone Number. I started buying from TSS…I forget why, actually. I think I saw them raved about on a forum in early 2008, and checked them out. The shop closed its doors in 2011 when the business began...

The “resting” color on this one is a faded orange-red, with a near-pearl finish. When the light angle shifts, the bottom turns brass-ish, and the finish shows more strongly gold-bronze. This color really complements medium to deep blue eyes, whether they’re green, blue, or grey-leaning.

Mostly a medium-dark charcoal, but it has some green tones in there. (Not sure why; but they look interesting.)

CND’s Vinylux Skin Tease (217)

A nice near-neutral color. The formula is a little bit uneven, but I did get nearly (maybe 90%) full coverage in two coats. This reminds me of Zoya’s Shay: it’s the same color intensity and shade, with some buff undertones.
