Maybelline’s Colorsensational Lipstick collection

Maybelline’s Colorsensational Lipstick collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

On the slightly pricier side for drugstore lipsticks, but they have the color payoff and (for the most part) longevity to merit the pricetag. At one time, these had a core line, and then several "sub-collections" - Vivid Brights, Creamy Mattes - but now they're all under just the one grouping on Maybelline's site, and they're not displayed in the subgroups in stores.

This color has already been set to be discontinued - I’m not sure if it’s because it was a very low seller, or if a key ingredient was discontinued by the manufacturer. But I’m glad that I got my jars when I did. (As of today it’s still available for purchase from fyrinnae.com - hurry and grab some!)

Makeup Revolution’s Vivid Baked Highlighter in Pink

Makeup Revolution’s Vivid Baked Highlighter in Pink

Ulta does carry Rose Gold, along with all its other Vivid Baked Highlighters…but not Pink. Pink seems to have either been a limited-edition product, or one that the company decided just wasn’t selling too well. The pink is slightly cool, almost a pinked lavender highlight. It works well and looks good on cool and neutral skintones, but warm (golden) or olive undertones would not be well-complemented by this one.

Parker and Cami are the lightest shades in the To and From collection, and the ones that I can use most easily. Cami leans just the tiniest bit cool, though as far as reds go, this is close to “neutral” - it’s fairly well balanced between blue and orange tones.

This is the brightest blue in the collection - and the closest to an “intimidating” blue eyeshadow because of the shade and intensity. I like wearing it, even though it tends to try and overpower my grey-blue eyes; but I’ve been a blue-eyeshadow fan for a long time!

CND’s Vinylux Banana Clips (239)

CND’s Vinylux Banana Clips (239)

Posted on Wednesday, at

Reminds me a bit of Sally Hansen’s Butterscotch, but a bit deeper. This polish would probably work better with three coats, rather than two - I can see a bit of visible nail line. Other than not being quite as opaque as I’d like, this formula has less spreadability than most other CND polishes. I don’t know if that’s due to this being a not-so-great batch, or if this The Yellow Nail Polish Problem: where so...
