Revlon’s Dramatic Definition Waterproof Mascara

Revlon’s Dramatic Definition Waterproof Mascara

Posted on Friday, at

This was another in Revlon’s revamped line of mascaras. I’ve tried four of them, and the consensus is…they’re dreadful. The mascaras are a bit watery, they transfer like nobody’s business, and their waterproof properties are not as good as other mascaras - not even previous Revlon waterproof mascaras. This one does not clump. There’s that in its favor. I also do like the tubes, which are ovals rather than cylinders. They will not roll...

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Copenhagen

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Copenhagen

Posted on Thursday, at

I love this color, but I do not love its application! (I so very much wish that this shade had been made in the lip stick format as well.) It’s a cooler red with good depth, but it applied very patchily. Possibly the intent was never to apply it over the whole lip…but if that’s the case, why do I se feathering with this shade that I don’t notice quite so much with the other lip...

I love this color, but I do not love the opacity. Four coats to get this color? I do not have that kind of time! The formula was fine, the resulting color is beautiful. The semisheer, though…that was not a happy thing. It is possible to only apply two coats and get something that’s a little closer to a cool pink than a magenta. However, you’ll need to be okay with VNL.

I saw this once while shopping. It was on a sale-item endcap, marked down to just over $1.00. I found it completely by chance. I love this shade! I don’t often wear lighter pink nail polishes - I want a little more depth, and truthfully, I’m more fond of cooler pinks, which (in my experience) aren’t often as easy to find. This is a purple, but it’s on the border between purple and pink. It has the...

The collection is an interesting color palette: the deeper green and medium-deep blue and purple alongside a more-saturated medium-light pink. All four are creme finishes, no foils or pearls or duotones. My personal favorite is Dimensional, and the semisheer Psychedelic is my least favorite - I love the color, but I don’t love that it takes four coats to achieve that color.

A light taupe base with silver shimmer. This is very similar to TKB’s Moon Stone mica. It can be a very nice “basic” shade for fair and lighter complexions, and almost might be a heavier highlighter on medium-deep skin. If this color interests you, though, get it from TKB Trading. It will cost you a lot less.

When you want gold liner but not yellow-gold, this is an excellent shade to use. It does try to get a little skippy at times, and I had to apply this in multiple short strokes and go over a few places twice or thrice.

This would make a nice eye color for me, but it’s too ashy for me to use on my lips. It applies decently, and the color does look great as a lid shade.

Color Club’s Grand Dame

This looks more like a greened silver than a metallic green. (Or possibly a sage-green metallic…?) Either way, it’s a lovely color, it’s not something I’ve seen often before, it applies well and is nicely durable. It does show brushstrokes, and I wish that it didn’t. It almost looks like it has a little bit of colorchanging going on: silver-gold at the center of a nail, then green, then a near-blue at the curves. It reminds...
