Wet n Wild’s Fantasy Makers Paint Palette: Smokey

Wet n Wild’s Fantasy Makers Paint Palette: Smokey

Posted on Tuesday, at

This palette was completely new. It looks like it was made up of half of the shades from last year’s “Neutrals”, and three others (the white, the purple, and the light grey) pulled in from I-don’t-know-where. This definitely looks like “vampire” makeup! I like using them as eyeshadows, but I have to apply very carefully and build, because otherwise these take a bit of time to cure completely. They’re definitely color-rich, though, even the white.

Shiro Cosmetics / Detrivore’s The Red Gallows

Shiro Cosmetics / Detrivore’s The Red Gallows

This color acts one way applied dry over primer, and differently when mixed with water and applied wet. Possibly the color would have been deeper if there was less water mixed in…but this was a formula that didn’t want to mix with water very much. I was hoping that this would be a deeper red, a little closer to the dry-application swatch but a little redder.

Pour one out for indie vendors past

Pour one out for indie vendors past

Posted on Sunday, at

I myself don’t know what happened to Shiro. I was also fortunate enough that my final orders placed with Shiro were delivered within stated TAT and with all items present. I could armchair-quarterback and point out ways that the closure could have been handled differently, using things that Shiro had done in the past (such as the order-fulfillment status tracker that was often deployed during the Black Friday sales.) But…why? This indie store is now closed. Moving on....

ColourPop’s Lux Lipstick in Brick

ColourPop’s Lux Lipstick in Brick

Posted on Saturday, at

This looked a little more neutral on Colourpop’s site…and I really should know by now, Do Not Trust Their Photos. Still, even if it’s a little warm, it’s not outside of my wearable range. Of other lipsticks I own, this is a little similar to Nude Nuance, but it’s a richer shade and just the tiniest bit warmer.
