Sephora’s Contour Gel Eyeliner in Center Sage

Sephora’s Contour Gel Eyeliner in Center Sage

Posted on Saturday, at

This is the easiest-applying of the gel liner pencils that I have. (This is also the newest pencil that I have. There may be a correlation.) The color works really well with my eye color - which surprised me, since many greens are either too bright, or too dark. While they look nice, they don’t complement my eye color as well as this particular shade.

I ordered this thinking, oh, a nicer soft “neutral"ish shade. It’s a softer non-pastel rose base color with less-than-perfectly-even coverage. The gold duotone, which is more of scattered shimmer than a solid duotone layer, is a nice accent. It’s enough to highlight, but not enough to look like a shimmer.

When looking at the Sculpted Cheeks set, this color caught my attention first. I worried that it would be a nearly-invisible shade, and if I use a softer, more diffuse brush (like the one that came with the set, ironically enough) I can barely tell where the product has been laid down. If I use a denser brush, I can actually see the color.

Fyrinnae’s Caramel Layer Cake

Fyrinnae’s Caramel Layer Cake

A good “non-neutral” neutral. The pearl finish nearly overwrites the base color, and there’s a very (very!!!) faint green duotone effect going on. The color blends decently, but with the strong pearl finish, it may not blend the color too well, especially when trying to pair this with smokier shades.

CND’s Vinylux Pink Leggings (237)

CND’s Vinylux Pink Leggings (237)

Not a “hot pink”, not precisely neon, but definitely a brighter, very saturated pink. Like most Vinylux polishes, it applied very well and lasted four days before I saw any tipwear at all (I forgot to apply the top coat, and I did some yardwork.)

Makeup Revolution’s Iconic 3 Redemption palette

Makeup Revolution’s Iconic 3 Redemption palette

Posted on Tuesday, at

One of three “Naked”-palette dupes. My first MUR palette was a gift. This was one of my first purchases. I wasn’t too sure about the Iconic 1, and I definitely wasn’t interested in the Iconic 2’s overall color palette. Rosy neutrals appeal to me, though; and this one looked like it had a good deal of pearl and shimmer-finish eyeshadows, rather than the less-well-behaved mattes.

I actually passed on this color when the colletion was originally released. I figured I had more than enough purples. But…this color of purple really does look good with my eye color - better than most of the cooler deep purples that I gravitate toward. I grabbed a few jars during the 2016 re-release. It applies well and adheres decently, but if you really don’t want a metallic finish…this isn’t the color for you. I can buff...

There’s a very faint gold shimmer finish on this - but it’s faint enough that I’m fine calling this one a satin finish. It may even be a pearl finish, the base color is softened quite a bit on application, compared to how it appears in the pot or pan.
