Not an original combination…but one of the better formulations I’ve used. The glitter isn’t so thick that fallout is an issue, but it’s not an easily-blended-away component of the shadow.

Medium evergreen with good coverage and adhesion. The gold is definitely a hint rather than one of the main things you see. It’s not quite the shade that I personally would use as a liner - I’d want something deeper - but it’s got very solid color payoff, so it works as a liner or an accent shade.

I have more than a few colors that are similar to this one…but the color looks good on me, so it’s not as if they’ll all sit unused and unloved. If you’re in a hurry, this CAN be a one-coat polish. The coverage is good, it evens out very nicely, and the color isn’t paler or less intense with one thicker coat than with two average coats. The polish is thick enough that it works...

Sleek Makeup’s Goodnight Sweetheart i-Divine palette

Sleek Makeup’s Goodnight Sweetheart i-Divine palette

Another review from last year’s palette!! It’s still available for purchase, though - unlike the On The Horizon, which has consistently shown as Out Of Stock for months now. It’s a good “neutrals” palette - not just brown shadows, but silver grey red cream and some browns. As usual, I get the best results when I pat the shadows in place with a stippling brush over an eyeshadow base, and then blend or brush out.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Completely Meat Circle

Muted orange-red, or muted red-orange? Depends on what you pair it with, and the lighting. It looks more like a reddish autumnal orange to me. It blends fairly well, and applies easily…and as of today, it’s still in stock (though not too many jars left.)

This makes a nice near-neutral shade when applied dry. When I want the shimmer to remain more prominent, I get the best effects if I use a sticky base (like Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy or NYX’s Glitter Glue). Applied dry, there’s some of the gold shimmer to act as a nice highlight, but it gets fairly quickly buffed away - so any blending done after application will get rid of most of the gold. It leaves behind the...

Is anybody out there…? Expanding the reading list

Is anybody out there…? Expanding the reading list

Posted on Saturday, at

My reading list has thinned a little…and since the blogging community has changed so much, I can’t really find new blogs like I used to. There’s a hell of a lot more sleuthing that I need to do. ...help…? I’m looking for beauty blogs that are at least a year old. It can be a mix - beauty and fashion, beauty and lifestyle, beauty and daily life, beauty and whatever - but “beauty” (makeup, nails, skincare,...

I have quite a few lip colors of this shade. (I don’t consciously look for them…it’s just the color that always jumps out at me.) Budget-wise and collection-wise, I could have done without buying this. On the other hand…it does cover very well, doesn’t feather, and is just a little more durable than the other similar lip shades that I already own.
