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.

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Whipped Caviar

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Whipped Caviar

Posted on Friday, at

This is such an interesting shade! Pink, but with a slight buff or greyish undertone. It’s a late-summer MLBB for me. Sadly, this color did not get made into a lipstick when NYX launched that line. I thought - and kind of hoped - that it would actually lean a little more strongly brown.

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipstick in Ace

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipstick in Ace

Posted on Thursday, at

I’ll admit, I bought this color for use as a creme-to-powder eye shade. (And possibly a softer contour.) I’m not personally a fan of blue lips as a regular or even semi-regular look, but I love the color! This applies a bit patchily, and I have to be extra-careful when applying or I do get unever coverage.

Color Club’s It’s About Thyme

Color Club’s It’s About Thyme

Posted on Wednesday, at

This color looks like it could be a leaf-green fairly easily, but it does have some brown tones to it. (To me, it almost looks autumnal.) The formula is a little on the thicker side, but that may have been the particular batch that I got. It didn’t stain my cuticles, though I did accidentally wear it without a base coat and it didn’t come off my nails easily.
