My Pretty Zombie’s Drugs Like Me: Chloroform blush

My Pretty Zombie’s Drugs Like Me: Chloroform blush

Posted on Friday, at

This looks a little intimidating, and it’s a color that I can’t wear easily - but it’s not a strong rust-red, it’s a bit more coral. I prefer wearing this on my lids as a softer wash of color - a bit like BE’s Warmth and Bare Radiance, which look great on me as subtle eyeshadows but a bit more like a poorly-chosen contour shade or an ill-matched bronzer if I do try and use...

Almost a pastel lip color…admittedly, not what I was hoping for. Something a little deeper would have looked better on me. This was part of the limited-edition Rebel Bloom collection, and I’ll try just about any mid-shade-range purple lipstick. This one is a little too light/pastel-ish for my preferences, and the coverage is a little uneven. I had to go over my lips several times to get it to even out, and that had the unfortunate effect...

There’s a lot going on with this color, but since most of it is neutral-ish it doesn’t come off as an “everything-and-the-kitchen-sink” chaotic shadow - more like pointilism. I see gold, green, pale blue, and silver. It all combines into a faded chrome-ish when angled away from the light.

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.
