CoverGirl’s Super Sizer Waterproof Mascara

CoverGirl’s Super Sizer Waterproof Mascara

Posted on Friday, at

I picked this mascara up one day pretty much by chance. I was travelling for work, and had left my mascara at home. I got this from a drugstore because it was waterproof, it was CoverGirl (a brand whose mascara-quality I know and trust), and it was newer, so I wanted to try it out. The wand looked like it might be a bit too long for the tube, because there’s an ever-so-slight bend in the wand-applicator.

Sigil Inspired’s Impatiens

Sigil Inspired’s Impatiens

Posted on Thursday, at

Light, cool purple with a faint grey undertone and a fairly decent gold effects-layer finish. The base color is almost a faded purple, some grey tones but not too strong. It’s the slightly deeper, more elegant version of BE’s Trust eyeshadow.

Color Club’s Oh The Irony

Color Club’s Oh The Irony

Posted on Wednesday, at

When Color Club’s Halo Chrome collection came out, I wasn’t too sure about it. It looked like another variant of the Halo Hues shades, which I had and loved. The chief difference seemed to be a metallic finish combined with the holographic effects. I got two polishes from this collection, and I think that’s my stopping point. The polishes are great to get if you missed the bulk of the Halo Hues colors (some are still available...

NYX Cosmetics’ Lid Lingerie Matte Eye Tint collection

NYX Cosmetics’ Lid Lingerie Matte Eye Tint collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

It took me a while to start using these. I first tried them two years after their initial release! I like the matte finish, the thicker-liquid consistency, and the blendability window that (for me) lasts 30 - 60 seconds after application. I’m less fond of the doefoot applicator, but it’s easy enough for me to use my preferred brush to get the product off of the doefoot, and apply it the way I prefer.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Fairest in the Sand

Shiro Cosmetics’ Fairest in the Sand

Posted on Monday, at

One of the highlighter-shadows from Shiro’s summer collection. This is a barely-warm neutral where, if you want it less shimmery and looking less like beach sand under full sun, you can buff down the shimmer and still retain the color.

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.

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Spellbinding

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Spellbinding

Posted on Thursday, at

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...
