ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Rayezor

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Rayezor

Posted on Friday, at

This color leans a little orange. It’s almost the color of the clay that I worked with in my high school arts class. The product itself isn’t clayey, but the color kind of is! It’s warm enough on me that I can’t grab it any day and wear it with anything I own. It’s not quite an autumnal shade, but I can’t really wear it with cool colors (makeup or clothing) or it will...

Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Daringly Nude (655)

Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Daringly Nude (655)

This was released in autumn 2015, along with half a dozen other “creamy matte” shades to add to the existing lineup. I do like these lipsticks, both for the range of shades and for the finish. Daringly Nude is perhaps a bit lighter than I would prefer; but for folks looking for this exact shade, it’s a fairly good lipstick.

TKB Trading’s Taurus Orion

The dry application of this color (which is, be reminded, straight mica with no binders) is a nearly semi-translucent medium-deep leaf green with scattered green-gold sparkle. The wet application looks almost metallic. The shadow leans yellow due to the finish, so I have some problems wearing it well. I have to make sure to use it with deeper true neutral colors, so that it pulls cooler.

The bottle pictures of this collection make Hand Fired look…much more orange than it is. Trust me, folks, it’s a brick-red foil. It leans a little warm for a red, but not extremely warm.

My Pretty Zombie’s mNg Trio

My Pretty Zombie’s mNg Trio

Posted on Tuesday, at

The owner of the company got a request to create an eyeshadow: pink with a green or blue interference layer. She came up with three options…and couldn’t decide which one she liked best. Neither could the person who requested them - she liked them all! So they all stayed in the My Pretty Zombie inventory. (As of about a year ago - December 2014 - all three eyeshadows were available. Currently - January 2017 - only the first two are...

There’s a (very) faint blue shift with this color. Mostly, though, what’s visible is the cool mauve/heathered violet base shade.

Fyrinnae’s Samhain Spirits

I’ll be brutally honest…I was expecting a more saturated color, based on the manufacturer site photos. It’s far from my least pigmented deeper shade, it’s just a bit less than what I expected. The finish is interesting, and the color applies and lasts as long as other Fyrinnae eyeshadows. It can also be a good “red” for people who want burgundy but don’t want something super saturated.
