Similar to the grey/lilac colorshift that BE released a few years ago, except this one has better pigmentation and a much more visible color change.

This one’s semisheer, so I had to wear 4 coats to get the amount of color that I wanted. (I didn’t realize, when I ordered it, that it would be semisheer.) I do like the color that I get when I actually use four coats. I’m just not thrilled about how long it takes me to get that result.

Each of these colors were released individually, but all four were available - at the same time - beginning April 1, 2017. They were available - only as the set, not for individual purchase - through the month before they (presumably) went back into “the vault.”

This almost has a metallic finish - not quite, but it’s awfully close. It’s a good neutral. There are some gold hints and highlights, but it’s mostly just non-ashy definitely taupe.

I have a few other colors like this from other vendors. (I think I even have this color in a nail polish.) The pigmentation is good, but if you’re looking for a strong burgundy, this may not be the best choice - the base color is definitely shown up by the aqua shimmer.

Zoya’s Urban Grunge collection

As far as I know, the two groups in this set didn’t have unique names. The first group was creme finish, the second group were the metallic or holo/sparkle. I didn’t get all of the colors, but the ones that I did get were uniformly good formulas: two coats gave me full opacity and even coverage. The least cooperative was Alicia, with a few thinner spots, but those were fixed easily enough.

NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Whites eyeliner in Lavender Blush

NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Whites eyeliner in Lavender Blush

Posted on Saturday, at

This is supposedly the warmer of the two purples. The color is almost invisible. This looks like a slightly dulled white - not a bright white, but definitely not any overtly visible tint. All of the other pencils in the Faux Whites collection actually show some color. Lavender Blush is closer to a soft white than any off the other shades. Not necessarily great if you were really looking forward to a warmer pale purple, but good if you want...
