Bite Beauty’s Multistick in Cashew

Bite Beauty’s Multistick in Cashew

Posted on Friday, at

My first multistick, and it was a color I wanted to try out anyway! On me it’s a “nude” lip color, a subtle warm cheek color, and a softer “natural” eyeshadow color. It’s a subtler shade, so this was (in my mind) a good first choice because it would be more versatile for me (unlike the purple which I kind of want, but which probably won’t work so great as a lip color.)

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Chrome #12

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Chrome #12

Light metallic chrome-blue with a faint gold duotone shimmer that’s slightly more visible in certain light angles. It’s almost like a faint duochrome effect, but it’s very subtle. It’s almost like a gold-metallic finish instead of the more often-seen silver.

This is a bright yellow. A VERY bright yellow. It was a jelly formula, and it took me four coats to get (almost) full opacity. The polish was fairly durable, but it also stained my nails…badly. I couldn’t soak or even buff this stain away. I just had to wait for it to grow out and get clipped off.

Bite Beauty’s Champagne Discovery kit

Bite Beauty’s Champagne Discovery kit

Posted on Tuesday, at

This was my first multistick. I wanted to get a sample of some other Bite products, and a multistick in particular…and Chestnut was one of the colors I wanted to get. I got this kit on sale, so for $5 more than one fullsize multistick, I got that plus two other fullsize products. (Always check the Sale section of Sephora, gang. You never know what goodies may be there!)

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Brown Chrome

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Brown Chrome

Posted on Monday, at

Near-metallic brown - one of the least “chrome"y of the Captivating Color Chromes, but still a useful, attractive color with good coverage.

One of five colors in Aromaleigh’s 20th-anniversary collection. This color is a semisheer duotone shimmer, like the other colors in the collection. The coverage can be built up…sort of. Most of what builds is the shimmer rather than the base color.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Sunshower

Shiro Cosmetics’ Sunshower

Third in the “solar-phenomenon” set of Colors of the Month. I am least fond of this color, because seafoam is a pretty shade but not on my eyelids. This can sheer out but retain some of the interference effects, or (I found, quite by accident) it looks good over a deep olive or evergreen cream shadow.

This is the only eyecolor I got from the Signature collection - which was all blues. I have colors similar to the other two, but I don’t have a lavender-leaning medium periwinkle. It coordinates well with the medium fuchsia-rose blush from this set, and I don’t know that I’ve seen too many other eyeshadows of exactly this shade from other vendors, indie or corporate.

CND’s Vinylux Alpine Plum (261)

CND’s Vinylux Alpine Plum (261)

Posted on Wednesday, at

Full-coverage metallic in…well, I guess it’s a wintry shade. Shadows-in-snow lavender. The formula is fairly good, and the polish is very durable once it’s cured; but it doesn’t level quite as well as I’d like. The visible brushstrokes are all fairly fine, but they’re still visible. (Unfortunately.)
