ColourPop’s Lux Lipstick in Ghosted

ColourPop’s Lux Lipstick in Ghosted

Posted on Friday, at

I thought this was going to be a little more of a deeper red-rose, but this is more “cool red” than “rose.” It’s just barely light enough for me to wear easily and comfortably. (I have never been overly fond of wearing bold lip colors.) The coverage is good, and while it does stain just a little bit, I get more longevity if I wear a lip primer.

Compared to other multichrome eyeshadows, the shift is really very minor. It can go from deeper emerald to a near-yellow when the light is at the right angle. That said, it’s a lovely metallic green…but unless you absolutely have to have this exact shade of green, you can find metallic medium emerald green eyeshadow from many other indie vendors at a lower price.

Zoya’s River

Zoya’s River

Posted on Wednesday, at

How much do I love that Zoya has two polishes “River” and “Song”, and they’re both blue? (Within spoiler-distance of TARDIS blue, at that!) The formula is standard Zoya, with the typical Zoya ease of application with good spreadability. River is a bit brighter/lighter than Song, but it’s still medium deep blue and very saturated.

BareMinerals’ Buxom Party All Night kit

BareMinerals’ Buxom Party All Night kit

Posted on Tuesday, at

Four mini-size (travel-size) Plumpline Lip Liners, Full-on Lip Creams, and Full-on Lip Polishes. The Plumpline Lip Liners are newer, and so if you’ve been buying Buxom cosmetics for a while you may have some of these already, but possibly none of the liners. This is a really good “intro” kit, with a balanced mix of shimmer polishes, cream polishes, and thicker liners. The colors are a mix of light and medium, warm and cool. The kit’s great for...

The base color is similar to TKB’s Raspberry, from their original Pop line - but this is just a little lighter, and I think part of that is due to the pearl finish. The color payoff is fairly good, just be aware that this is unblended mica. Application should be patting, not sweeping; and primer is definitely required.

TKB Trading’s Raging Raspberry

TKB Trading’s Raging Raspberry

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.
