Zoya’s Innocence collection

Zoya’s Innocence collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

A collection of slightly greyed colors, with a few deeper clear shades…a good season-transitional group of polishes. This is like the winterized version of the Feel collection. There’s a bit more saturation to the shades (a lot more saturation, in some cases.) My favorites are Aire and Fern. Theo, the topper, is my personal least favorite. I’m just not a fan of textured toppers or polishes. (If my favorite shade was released as a pixie-dust or “distressed”...

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Mysterious

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Mysterious

This color’s primary shift range is in the blue-purple range, with hints of color into green and fuchsia on either side. I love lush, rich blues and purples, so the fact that the primary colorshift is so very dominant (the green and fuchsia only appear at extreme angles) means that I still enjoy the shadow.

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Aria

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Aria

Posted on Friday, at

I was interested in trying other purple shades, so grabbing Aria was high on my list of priorities. It tends to apply a bit sloppily, though, and as a liner, this one’s terrible. You can see the feathering that’s visible very soon after application. I do wish that more of these purply shades made it to the Suede Matte Lipsticks. Both the formula and application are less difficult when they’re in bullet form.

Sally Hansen’s Rose Bold (172)

Sally Hansen’s Rose Bold (172)

I like this color and was happy to see it in the Xtreme Wear lineup for Spring 2019! The opacity is excellent, the coverage is even, and the polish dries to be very durable. I do wish that this wasn’t as prone to streaking, though.

NYX Cosmetics’ Lid Lingerie Eye Tint collection

NYX Cosmetics’ Lid Lingerie Eye Tint collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

There are three “subsets” of eye tint: these, the matte eye tints, and the “holographic” / interference eye tints. This set is my least favorite of the three. The colors are nice enough, but I prefer the look and effects of the matte eye tints. (I just wish that the mattes came in colors like Whimsy and Morning Sky!) I have four of these colors, and while they’re useful for travel, I think that I’ll only get the four...

Shiro Cosmetics / Detrivore’s Molag Bal

Shiro Cosmetics / Detrivore’s Molag Bal

Posted on Monday, at

A good neutral shade with just enough warmth and rose to be a unique brown. The color is a bit on the sheer side, and while it does build, I personally don’t love it when it does. I wear this over a brown base (like Kiko’s Rosy Brown shadow stick) and get good results and better opacity. It blends decently, but if it’s next to a deeper or brighter color, better to overspread Molag Bal and blend...

Maybelline’s FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Rose Gold

Maybelline’s FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Rose Gold

Posted on Thursday, at

This is my favorite of these metallic highlighters from Maybelline. I don’t highlight my cheeks very often, but I love using this on my eyelids - either under the browbone, or on the outer crease fading to my temples.
