CND’s Vinylux Viridian Veil (255)

CND’s Vinylux Viridian Veil (255)

I love the shade…the formula, a little less so. It’s thick, but it doesn’t spread out and smooth once applied, so brushstrokes are highly visible.

TKB Trading’s Beloved Blushes collection

TKB Trading’s Beloved Blushes collection

Six red or pink colorants, usable as eyeshadows or blushes. Angel Wings is a little pale for a blush, for my preferences; and it doesn’t have a ton of shimmer, so you’d have to add that to get Angel Wings to work as a glow powder…but the other shades look like they’d make great blushes without needing another color mixed in.

I think this may have the same colorshifting pigments as Enchanting, since I see blue or purple depending on the light angle. The color is mostly blue, with occasional changes to violet or teal. The color is a little lighter-weight than the Premiums, but I still get decent coverage.

One of the smaller spectrums of colorshift in the Premiums collection (the smallest is Captivate, that’s just…different colors of blue.) It definitely looks better when foiled! The finish is smoother, and the colorshift is a bit more visible.

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Vamp lip cream in Temptress

This was one of the first of these that I had - because it was in the set that I bought on sale. The application is about on par with the rest of the “vamp” colors - it can be a little bit uneven, and because it’s such a dark shade, that unevenness is more noticeable. It’s an attractive color, it’s just not a shade that I personally reach for.

The orange and red dominate this one, but the colorshift through to gold is definitely there. I like this one because it’s autumnal, where the others are (mostly) “winter jeweltone” shades. This was one of the first colors from the Premiums collection that I knew I wanted to get. (Magical was the other one.)

This is such a wonderfully smooth metallic finish…there’s very little visible graininess or texturing at all, it’s just shiny and light-reflecting. The color is very rich but not so dark it’s almost black (Zoya’s done a few of those.)

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ The Premiums collection

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ The Premiums collection

I love multichromes! I get so excited about multichrome eyeshadows or nail polishes…and then get so let down when they turn out to be sheer, need four coats to see the multichromatic effects, or need a certain product to make the colorshifts more visible than “a hint”. When I first saw posts about the Premium eyeshadows from Dawn Eyes Cosmetics, I thought: there’s got to be a catch. Do you have to use a glitter glue? Do they...

Mystical covers the cool end of the spectrum pretty thoroughly. The purple shows up more strongly at extreme angles, and when it shows up it’s a rich violet.
