Sigil Inspired’s Talking with Maple

This is Nails Inc’s Straight to my Head in eyeshadow form. Seriously! The base color is a light, barely-warm brown, and there’s a strong gold interference effect. It’s a little softer than TKB Trading’s Cinnamon Sugar, but in terms of shade and finish it’s extremely similar. (It’s similar enough that if you have one, you don’t need the other.)

Sephora’s Colorful Shadow Liner in Pretty Little Thing

Sephora’s Colorful Shadow Liner in Pretty Little Thing

When Sephora added several new shades to this collection, I was interested in the neutrals more than the other colors. Yes, the fuchsia-rose and the vivid green are lovely, but having neutral mattes? GIMME! This one’s a borderline warm/red shade. It can pull peachy, depending on the lighting and surrounding colors.  It does have a tendency to be a bit slubby, like most of the matte shades in this lineup; but a stipple brush or fingertip will...

The base shade for this color can look more cool pink or more rosy lilac depending on the lighting. It can also look almost taupe. The interference isn’t as visible on this color as other shades, unless it’s applied wet and over a larger area (like the entire lid.)

Nails Inc’s Straight To My Head

Nails Inc’s Straight To My Head

This is the “duotone/flash” color from Nails Inc’s Champagne Shine duo. It reminds me a bit of BareMinerals’ Fired Up Foiling Glimmers, with the warmer colors and a really strong yellow flash! The polish is semisheer, though, so without a base coat you’ll need three full coats to get complete and even opaque coverage.

Why am I reviewing these so very late in the game? Well…buying a house, breaking my ankle, moving into the new house (while on crutches no less!), job loss, new job, panic panic panic. The downside is that I wasn’t exactly timely reviewing these, or even trying them. The upside is that I get to enjoy them now! I have three of these in my go-bag - they’re that useful and well-loved.

Supersaturated burgundy matte pigment. This is an unblended colorant with no additives to help with longevity or ease of application, so for best results you’ll want to use a fixative after you apply. You’ll also want to use a light touch! This is straight-up colorant, and it doesn’t kid around. You may also wish to use a base.

I first received this as a GWP when I ordered some lip liners. The color looks really amazing on me! An aged khaki-gold that’s not too shimmery, not too brown, not too green. I really love how this color looks on me, and it’s not a color I’ve seen much before, in any other eyeshadow or eyeliner. It’a also waterproof, which is an extra bonus.

A lovely purple blush! Not quite the same as my two all-time favorite purple blushes from Aromaleigh (Wildflower and Smolder) but it has a faint glow.
