Maybelline’s FaceStudio Master Holographic Prismatic Highlighter collection

Maybelline’s FaceStudio Master Holographic Prismatic Highlighter collection

These were released after the debut of the Chrome Metallic highlighters…and it seemed like there were a few iridescent-white-and-purple highlighter pairings released around this time! (Wet n Wild’s Goth o Glam collection had its white and purple highlighters, too.) These are slightly sparklier than the metallic highlighters, and these have an iridescent effect. These read more like “festival-season” highlighters to me, even though they were released in the middle of winter, FAR away from festival season.

I didn’t buy this because I initially thought: I don’t wear neon colors, I don’t know if I’ll really make use of them. I was so wrong! I don’t generally use only colors from this palette, but they make very nice accent-shades. Some are a little on the faint side, and they all look much better when they’re patted into place rather than applied with a sweeping motion.

Nail art for August 20

Nail art for August 20

Posted on Monday, at

August has been such a crazy month, I haven’t had time to properly shop my own stash! I finally grabbed a free day, though, and added some water decals to my nails. This manicure was three days old at this point, so you can get an idea of the staying power of CND Vinylux. The butterflies were part of a set of 50-card water decals from the Born Pretty Store.

This one’s very similar to Symphonic, but it’s slightly muted in color intensity and visible shift. It applies well and the color payofff is good, it just doesn’t shift quite as much as one might expect. The most visible color is a wine-burgundy.

Interesting shades…but not really as colorchanging as the vendor photos suggest. They’re also larger-particle, not full-on sparkle, but close. Intergalactic is the one that shows the most multichromatic effects, but those are a bit on the muted side.

I am not a huge fan of standard highlighting. I don’t dust highlighting powder on my cupid’s bow, above my cheekbones or even always just beneath my eyebrows. I do love highlighters, though - as complements to deeper eyeshadows, or as effects-layers.

Revlon’s Lash Potion by Grow Luscious Waterproof Mascara

Revlon’s Lash Potion by Grow Luscious Waterproof Mascara

I really loved this mascara. It gave me my length and a little bit of volume. And it was waterproof! (And I love the tube design.) The brush was a little on the fatter side, but it didn’t just glomp the mascara onto my lashes. There were no clumps! It lasted all day and didn’t flake! My lashes didn’t feel crunchy! This mascara was discontinued after just two years. Revlon revamped its entire mascara line. I may...
