This is the brightest blue in the collection - and the closest to an “intimidating” blue eyeshadow because of the shade and intensity. I like wearing it, even though it tends to try and overpower my grey-blue eyes; but I’ve been a blue-eyeshadow fan for a long time!

CND’s Vinylux Banana Clips (239)

CND’s Vinylux Banana Clips (239)

Posted on Wednesday, at

Reminds me a bit of Sally Hansen’s Butterscotch, but a bit deeper. This polish would probably work better with three coats, rather than two - I can see a bit of visible nail line. Other than not being quite as opaque as I’d like, this formula has less spreadability than most other CND polishes. I don’t know if that’s due to this being a not-so-great batch, or if this The Yellow Nail Polish Problem: where so...

Makeup Revolution’s Iconic Smokey Redemption palette

Makeup Revolution’s Iconic Smokey Redemption palette

Posted on Tuesday, at

This is the first of the Redemption palettes to have official names for the colors. It’s a little nicer than me just calling them “1, 2, 3…” direct across the palette! The colors were half-and-half: greys/blacks, and softer near-neutrals. The pigmentation levels were fairly good for MUR Redemption palettes, though all of the colors - with the exception of the matte near-black - are mid-intensity. The matte shades all needed a more thorough application to get decent coverage - again, typical...

When I started swatching these colors, I noticed that many of them had the “sparse scattered shimmer” - I’m taking a wild guess here, and saying that the addition of the shimmer-particles is what pushed these into being “ooops” colors. I think this might have been a batch of Warboy - the red base is a bit light to have been a try at War of Five Armies. (But that’s all guesswork.)

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Parvati blush

An attractive-enough coolish pink with softened gold shimmer. I was hoping for a slightly cooler pink, though - something that leaned a little more purple. (Also something that was possibly a little more opaque.)

This and Rose Julep are the two lip creams that I actually reach for somewhat regularly. (I only have one tube of Mai Tai, and I’ve already put a bit of a dent in it. Not sure what I’ll do when this one is totally gone…since it was an LE shade.)

Shiro Cosmetics’ Jam A Keg Tap Into That Beehive

Shiro Cosmetics’ Jam A Keg Tap Into That Beehive

Posted on Thursday, at

An interesting liner shade or accent color. Just enough gold for a good visual highlight, but the base color is definitely brown. I don’t know what actual color Shiro was trying to create, but I like the resulting color! (Sadly, this was part of the Hold My Beer collection, which was limited to begin with…and is now completely gone.)
