This color would be right at home in one of the “Acid” / Brights color palettes that were available until a year ago. (Give ‘em another decade, they’ll show up again.) This is either a very cool hot pink, or a warmer neon violet. Since it is a colorant, it doesn’t have anything to make it apply smoothly, so you have to be a little more careful applying this. (Patting is good. Sweeping gets mixed results. And it’s...

Color Club’s It’s Going To Be Major

Color Club’s It’s Going To Be Major

Posted on Wednesday, at

I absolutely love this color! I’ve picked up a few other nail polish shades that I honestly hoped would be this shade on the nail. They were a bit too purple, or too pastel, or something else…but finally, I found it.

Nails Inc’s Champagne Shine Duo

Nails Inc’s Champagne Shine Duo

My second polish duo from Nails Inc. (the first was the Sparkle Like a Unicorn.) I like the wider, shaped polish brush, and am not a huge fan of the bottle design where you’re often better off pulling of the metallic-effect outer cap and just using the smaller cap. I do like both the colors, though I kind of wish that Fizzical was more of a linear holographic than a scattered holographic. The duotone tan/orange/gold color, Straight...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Mars in Opposition

Applies just a little softer than you might think it would, which is kind of nice…unless you were looking for a solidly medium brown shadow. Layering didn’t darken the base shade appreciably. It makes a nice quasi-highlighter, with the multicolored shimmer.

Sephora’s Colorful Shadow Liner in Purple

Sephora’s Colorful Shadow Liner in Purple

Posted on Saturday, at

There are three “purple"s in Sephora’s Jumbo Liner collection (in addition to the other purple colors like Lilac.) The “purple"s are…not the same base shade! So if you fall in love with Purple Glitter, don’t grab or avoid this Purple because you think it will look the same except for the glitter. It’s totally different! Where Purple Glitter is a deep grape-violet, this is a red-plum. It’s right on the edge of burgundy.

Bite Beauty’s Multistick in Papaya

Bite Beauty’s Multistick in Papaya

This shade is just neutral enough that I can wear it, but coral enough that people who need warmer reds can also rock this shade. For me, it’s definitely a spring/summer shade, since that’s when I’m more likely to wear medium and slightly warmer colors that will look best with it. This isn’t as peach/orange as other “papaya” blush colors in my collection. It’s more saturated, it’s more red.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Celebr-eight Good Times

Shiro Cosmetics’ Celebr-eight Good Times

Posted on Thursday, at

Shiro’s eight-year anniversary color! It’s a light green (nearly seafoam) with a soft gold shimmer. It’s not a color that I personally can wear easily, with the other colors that I often have on (especially in my wardrobe); but when I can wear it, it really enhances my eyes and looks good on me.

You want a supersaturated purply blue? This is the shade you want! It’s not navy, it’s not grape, it’s precisely between them. It applies easily and spreads out evenly, and it’s pretty durable. The color looks like it might be a stainer, but I didn’t experience that, even without a base coat. It is very saturated, and so any polish that stays behind (like in the cuticles or at the very edges of the nail)...
