Zoya’s Prim

Zoya’s Prim

I was interested in Prim the instant I saw it…and it was the ONLY shade from the Holiday 2014 collection I was interested in. It’s a gorgeous color with a lovely finish, but it does have a tendency to show brushstrokes.

CND’s Vinylux Rhythm and Heat collection

CND’s Vinylux Rhythm and Heat collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

Saturated summer shades that aren’t neon? (Okay, well one of them is. One other night be neon-ish. The other four…not so much.) I like that this wasn’t neons or pastels, nor some of the more “typical” summer bright colors. I avoided Mambo Beat and Sugarcane, because the first is a little too orange for my preferences and the second is Precisely The Wrong Color of Green for me - but if their formula matches the other Vinylux...

I definitely prefer this foiled - the gold shimmer/pearl shows up quite nicely! Applied dry, and there’s barely a suggestion of that near-shimmer. The base color payoff level is very good, it hardly lightens or even changes color from what’s seen in the pot.

The Muse collection was one of Aromaleigh v2’s “core” shadow collections. I have several colors from it - Thalia is one of my favorites! The finish does soften the base color a bit, almost to a “ballet”-pink. It’s similar to Meow Cosmetics’ Thalia, from their Sunless Sea collection - but this Thalia is a bit cooler, and has a little more color depth.

The warmer of the two greens in this collection. I honestly expected that I’d have little to no use for this color, that it would really not look good on me. Well…it isn’t the best color ever on me, but it does look better than I thought it would. (Which goes to prove that I don’t know everything…)

Really good coverage and finish! I did get a little staining when foiling this on bare skin, so wear some kind of base underneath this shade. This isn’t quite a “USA” or “Canada” red, but it looks to be about halfway between the two. (Canada red looks a little brighter than USA-red…at least to me.)

Shiro Cosmetics’ You Want These Lumps

The finish lightens this color quite a bit - mutes? Not quite “washes out”, but definitely “overpowers”. There is some gold shimmer, but it’s fairly scattered. Based just on the swatch, I think that this was the color that they were trying to make when they slipped slightly and created a small batch of “Eat a Traffic Cone Full Of Ice Cream.”
