Concrete Minerals’ To Boldly Go

Concrete Minerals’ To Boldly Go

Posted on Monday, at

Similar to Blood and Guts, but less of a near-neutral shade and with more visible blue shimmer. If you want a dusty berry shade rather than a borderline “smoky” color, To Boldly Go is the better choice. This applies decently enough and blends fairly well.

Bite Beauty’s Line Define Lip Primer

Bite Beauty’s Line Define Lip Primer

Posted on Saturday, at

I keep trying low-cost lip primers to find some miracle like Wet n Wild’s Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer, but it just hasn’t happened. Until that day…this is the lip primer that works best for me.

Olay’s Regenerist Night Recovery Cream

Olay’s Regenerist Night Recovery Cream

Posted on Friday, at

I have been using this for a while - at least since 2012. It’s easily available, it goes on smooth and absorbs quickly, and I like how it leaves my skin feeling. This stuff is outright amazing, in terms of moisturizing. I’ll put it on my elbows and on my heels, and the skin stays soft and healthy.  If I leave this out of my nightly routine for a few days, I notice that my skin doesn’t...

Color Club’s Hello Holo

Color Club’s Hello Holo

Posted on Wednesday, at

This was the first polish from this collection that I bought. It’s semisheer, got a very light lavender tint and some larger, slightly darker purple glitter bits. I have to apply three coats to get full opacity, and even then there’s a hint of visible nail line. I will probably prefer using this as a topper. I won’t get the full holographic effect, but it’ll be a nice way to dress up some of my creme...

CND’s Vinylux Sweet Escape collection

CND’s Vinylux Sweet Escape collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

If you’re in the mood for pastel-ish neutrals, this is an excellent collection. Released during the run-up to Valentine’s Day, this managed to hit the “valentine” vibe without being overwhelmingly pink and/or treacly. The colors are fairly good shades with excellent formulas, though Poetry is a deeper mauve than I anticipated and the paler neutrals sometimes need a third coat for complete opacity.

TKB Trading’s Black Oxide

TKB Trading’s Black Oxide

Posted on Monday, at

If you want black eyeliner, this is the stuff. Unadulterated black pigment, no shimmer or sparkle. This is an unblended oxide, so it’s very pigmented. A little goes a long way! It can also easily overwhelm other colors that it’s blended into - so start off with a smaller amount and build up or out as needed.

Maybelline’s Lip Studio Prime It Up Lip Primer

Maybelline’s Lip Studio Prime It Up Lip Primer

Posted on Friday, at

I was hoping for another primer that acted like a color-adhesive, to help my lip color stay in place longer. I was less concerned with smoothing, but if the primer helped minimize feathering (especially on bolder deeper shades) that would also be welcome. The form and price seemed great, and it was easy to apply. There was a little bit of tackiness…but not too much, honestly. I first purchased this about a year ago, and in between then and...

Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara in Navy Blue

Posted on Thursday, at

This is the color of blue mascara that’s most often easily available: dark blue that definitely looks blue.
