BareMinerals’ Flawless Definition Mascara

BareMinerals’ Flawless Definition Mascara

Posted on Friday, at

For quite a long time, this was my go-to mascara. It gave me definition but didn’t clump, didn’t try to add a whole lot of volume…it was subtler than most other mascaras. It took a few years for BE to introduce a waterproof formula for this mascara, but once they did I was a huge fan! (Up until that point I used CoverGirl LashBlast Length Waterproof.)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara collection

Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

I’ve long kept an eye out for colored mascara that provides a strong tint rather than a bold color; and a few of the shades in this collection meet that requirement. They lengthen a little, and define, but they do not add volume, and I had to use multiple coats to see the color much. They are also not waterproof - so I have to use a waterproofing top coat. Despite the downsides, I do love these mascaras, and...

TKB Trading’s How Big is the Universe? collection

By the time this group of colorants was released as a collection, I’d long since owned all of these colors. Most are warmer shades, and so Emerald does look a bit odd mixed in with the others. However, the two reds and the orange make a decent trio, as do the yellow-brown-green colors. If you’re interested in trying some TKB Trading colorants, this can be a good collection to start with. Just be aware that Sparkle Rose and...

TKB Trading’s True Red Orange

TKB Trading’s True Red Orange

Posted on Monday, at

Like the other “Trues”, this is intended for soapmaking, nail colors, and/or facial cosmetics, but not eyeshadow. (It’s possible to use it as an eyeshadow, just don’t apply it dry and don’t apply it near the lash line to minimize the chance of it getting into your eye.) It’s called “red-orange” because of how it shifts more orange when used in soap; but swatched in its own on dry skin, it’s almost a neutral...

NYX Cosmetics’ Lock It Waterproof Mascara Topcoat

NYX Cosmetics’ Lock It Waterproof Mascara Topcoat

Posted on Friday, at

When you want to wear a certain mascara but you want it to be waterproof and it isn’t…this will save your bacon. Or your mascara. Whichever. Ever since I’ve been extremely into makeup, some company has had a waterproof mascara topcoat available. Maybe not 100% of the time, but enough different companies in sequence that I could find one every other year or so. First it was Urban Decay’s Lash Lingerie and Galoshes; then it was BareMinerals’...

Meow Cosmetics’ Diabolical

Meow Cosmetics’ Diabolical

Posted on Thursday, at

...with a sparse bit of added shimmer. The color payoff is very solid, and the color stays in place and does not stain my skin.
