Nails Inc’s Straight To My Head

Nails Inc’s Straight To My Head

Posted on Wednesday, at

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.

TKB Trading’s Red 33 Lake

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.

Jordana’s Color Envy Waterproof Eyeliner in Antique Linger

Jordana’s Color Envy Waterproof Eyeliner in Antique Linger

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.

Zoya’s Tawny

I wasn’t sure how this would perform - I’d seen manicures where it was much more “scattered sparkle” and more of an effects layer than anything, and others where it was a fairly opaque base shade with gold, orange, and red sparkle. I can get it to act more like a full-color polish, but it takes three coats. That said…it’s a pretty durable three coats!

Shiro Cosmetics / Detrivore’s Sinful Succulents collection

This colleciton reminds me a little of Aromaleigh’s Earth Sea Sky collection: most of the colors have a base shade and a complementary effects-shimmer, and most of the colors are in the middle of the hue-range. There are a few deeper shades, but only one in the entire collection that’s a “darker” color by just about any definition. They’re all inspired by the various shades on cacti.

Sigil Inspired’s Malva Jungle Loafer

The base color is a very deep rose-pink that I would dearly love as a blush and lip color…but without the strong gold shimmer that’s in this eyeshadow. (It would be a little too sparkly-gold for a blush.) This is very similar to TKB Trading’s Sparkle Rose.

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Dark Taupe (39)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Dark Taupe (39)

Posted on Saturday, at

A dark brown base with a silvery pearlesque finish. There’s enough color depth to provide me really good definition, and a little bit of what looks like sootiness without being a charcoal.
