elf’s Cut Crease Eye Brush collection

elf’s Cut Crease Eye Brush collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

A good assortment of eyeshadow brushes - from softer blending to firmer all-over application to fine-detail. The brushes are part of what was formerly known as the “Studio” line of brushes. They all have black handles and black bristles, and while most were always synthetic bristles they’re ALL synthetic as of August 2016. I’ve said before that I’m less than fond of many of elf’s older-style face brushes, but their eye brushes have long been my go-to...

Meow Cosmetics’ Sunshine

Meow Cosmetics’ Sunshine

Looks very similar to straight-up Yellow Oxide. It’s nearly the same as Minions, from the Hayhem Mattes collection - similar enough that I’m confident saying that if you’re looking for a yellow matte eyeshadow, you can buy one of these two and you don’t need the other.

Olay’s Regenerist Regenerating Serum

Olay’s Regenerist Regenerating Serum

Posted on Saturday, at

The name’s a bit repetitive and redundant…but it works great for me. This has been part of my daily routine since 2011. I started using this because it was available at Costco in a large-size bottle, at a lower price than I’d pay at the drugstore. I chose the serum because serums are moisturizers, but with a greater concentration of the active ingredient(s). I don’t have to use much on my face - just a small...

Kiko Cosmetics’ Jelly Jungle Waterproof Mascara in Scarlet Spirit

Kiko Cosmetics’ Jelly Jungle Waterproof Mascara in Scarlet Spirit

Posted on Friday, at

I was pretty interested when I noticed these mascaras. (The collection had been out for a while, but I don’t regularly visit the Kiko website, so…I’m a bit late to the game.) The color selection wasn’t huge, but the three that are not standard mascara colors are a decent mix. I ended up buying the red, blue, and brown. The upside to these is that in addition to being colored mascara and being not too expensive,...

My Pretty Zombie’s SSSSSS!

My Pretty Zombie’s SSSSSS!

Posted on Thursday, at

Slightly blackened, so it leaves behind a bit of sooty residue; but it does smoke out well. Similar to the old Aromaleigh color Drama Green, but a brighter green and with scattered gold highlights.

Zoya’s McKenna

Zoya’s McKenna

I thought this color would be a little more neutral but a little brighter, a bit like the colors in the Touch collection. There are some putty-grey tones to this that make my hands a bit red-looking when I wear it. It applies well and the coverage is good, but I don’t know that I’ll reach for it too often.

Zoya’s Beth

Zoya’s Beth

The formula is just a little bit thick, and tends to want to show streaks. But it’s a very nice shade with great opacity, a softened shimmer finish, and an understated color and metallic aspect. Zoya’s Jules was somewhat similar, but a bit deeper and a little more yellow. I like both Jules and Beth, but will grab Beth when I want to look a little more “normal”. It’s a stealth-shimmer. I’m glad to have this...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Rage & Calm collection

Shiro Cosmetics’ Rage & Calm collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

The shades are a cross between neutrals and a blaze of color. This is the first collection where people can buy full-sized in Shiro’s traditional loose formula, or pressed. You can get singles or the collection/palette. I went for the loose formula, naturally; but from swatches I’ve seen, there’s utterly no color difference between the two formulas. If you thought you may have been interested in Sleek’s Spirit Animal but wanted something without a cringey...
