Notoriously Morbid’s Wayward Son

Notoriously Morbid’s Wayward Son

Posted on Monday, at

This is like a slightly more pigmented version of BE’s Chameleon eyeshadow. Chameleon is quasi-sheer, where Wayward Son is a little thin in spots but it’s not semisheer. It doesn’t mix with water as easily as some other Notoriously Morbid shadows.

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Shadow Stick in Silver (02)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Shadow Stick in Silver (02)

Posted on Friday, at

Similar to many of the other metallic-silver eyeliners I’ve tried…but in a broader, almost jumbo-pencil format. Nyx’s Post and Pans was cooler and just slightly deeper, and while I think that Sephora may have had a jumbo-crayon in silver at one point, I didn’t seem to purchase that one.

CoverGirl’s Peacock Flare Waterproof Mascara

CoverGirl’s Peacock Flare Waterproof Mascara

Posted on Thursday, at

This gave me fairly good definition and a nice bit of length, but it was (as you can see in the photos) a bit transfer-prone. It applied nicely, evenly, and cleanly. It didn’t dry as quickly as other waterproof mascaras. I’m not sure why, but I haven’t seen this with other CoverGirl mascaras. Once it did cure, I got all-day wear with no flaking or smudging.

CND’s Vinylux in Dimensional (316)

CND’s Vinylux in Dimensional (316)

Posted on Wednesday, at

I originally wasn’t overly interested in the Prismatic collection…except for this color. (I’m a sucker for a rich, saturated blue.) This is a brighter blue with a very high color payoff. The formula is a little bit on the thicker side, but maybe that’s just the batch I got. I think that there have occasionally been blues like this from other vendors, but I don’t think that this exact shade was previously released in the...

Zoya’s Bridal Bliss 2019 collection

Zoya’s Bridal Bliss 2019 collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

The second of Zoya’s “Bridal Bliss” collections - again, all previously-released colors. I ended up having more of the colors in this collection than of the first Bridal Bliss shades, and the ones I don’t own are semisheer or sheer/“French mani” polishes, so I’m fine with not having them in my collection. There are also some polishes in this group that were in last year’s Bridal Bliss collection. Out of these dozen polishes, I already...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Shaymin

Shiro Cosmetics’ Shaymin

Posted on Monday, at

I purchased this when it was on the “discontinued” list from Shiro. I wanted to have as complete a set of the initial collection lineup as I could. This shade isn’t one of my favorites, but the eyeshadow itself had great color payoff and smooth application. It’s a softened coral - I don’t know if part of that is due to the finish or not, which is more of a roughened pearl than a full frost.

Color Club’s Frost Bite

Color Club’s Frost Bite

Posted on Wednesday, at

I am not generally a fan of sheer nail polishes. I prefer to know that any manicure that I’ll do, whatever the other effects the polish may have, the manicure will be totally opaque. This one is a huge exception! It’s still partially translucent after three coats, but it does provide a pretty even color coverage that changes to pastel green at the extreme edges of the nail, and shows a pretty visible pastel-pink flash at certain light...

Sally Hansen’s Like A Girl (050)

Sally Hansen’s Like A Girl (050)

Posted on Wednesday, at

This shade is extremely close to Zoya’s Veronica. Like a Girl is just a tiny it brighter…or maybe it appears that way because the Mega Strength formula is a bit watery compared to most other polishes I’ve used. If you like deeper reds but the vampier colors are still just a bit outside your personal comfort zone, try a color like this one. I didn’t get skin or nail-bed staining with this one, and it lasted...
