Shiro Cosmetics’ Seven Kingdoms collection

Shiro Cosmetics’ Seven Kingdoms collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

I wasn’t immediately interested in this collection. The colors were all neutrals or muted shades, with the exception of Maiden Queen. It’s a good set of colors, though - great color payoff, and over half are matte or satin finish.

Shiro Cosmetics’ On Love: Agape

Shiro Cosmetics’ On Love: Agape

This can be a bit rougher-textured, but the color level is solid and it applies well. The base color leans just slightly cool. It’s a good basic “all-around” lighter pink.

Zoya’s Flair collection

Zoya’s Flair collection

Paired with Focus, the creme-version of this collection. I was more interested in the metallics, since most Vinylux polishes are creme-finish, so creme polishes are pretty much taken care of. I love the deeper jeweltone shades - and Tris was a real surprise, since it’s a very close cousin to Sally Hansen’s Opulent Cloud with its darker grey base and tarnished-gold shifts. I stuck to the cools and neutrals. and didn’t get Aggie or Ember.

NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Whites eyeliner in Baby Powder

NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Whites eyeliner in Baby Powder

Blue eyes and bright or pale blue eyeliner are not best friends. Just…not. The pencil applies well, and stays in place as long as the others (the white stays longer than the tint.) But this is not the best color for me personally.

Zoya’s Paradise Sun collection

Paired with the Island Fun collection of creme-finish polishes. (I skipped those because while the colors are attractive, I have similar in my collection already in creme-finish.) While Oceane and Selene caught my attention during the 2017 Earth Day event, I had bought Genesis about a year before, then promptly misplaced it while I moved house. These are all glass-fleck finishes, and except for Genesis, they provide full coverage in two coats.

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Parker

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Parker

This leans just slightly brown - not enough to be a “rosewood”, but there’s enough brown to make this a slightly less “casual”-looking shade.

My Pretty Zombie’s Drugs Like Me: Cocaine blush

My Pretty Zombie’s Drugs Like Me: Cocaine blush

Posted on Friday, at

Despite the base color and pretty visible particles, this isn’t a glitterbomb of a blush. The color shows up nicely on me, but not as scary-vibrant as I thought it might. It reminded me of Aromaleigh’s Candy-O blush.
