Makeup Revolution’s Regeneration Trends Mischief Maker palette

Makeup Revolution’s Regeneration Trends Mischief Maker palette

Posted on Tuesday, at

I picked up this palette and the Mischief Mattes palette this past October. I liked the colors…and they were on sale. This has a mix of matte and shimmer finish shadows, and almost all of the shades are “winter” colors so they complement my coloring. These all perform best when applied over eye primer and when patted on rather than swept on. They do blend fairly easily, but if you use a fluffier brush to pick up and apply,...

I picked up this palette and the Mischief Maker palette this past October. I liked the colors…and they were on sale. This one specifically gave me more mattes in brighter colors. These all perform best when applied over eye primer and when patted on rather than swept on. They do blend fairly easily, but if you use a fluffier brush to pick up and apply, you may get a lot more dust and fallout. I use the flatter elf...

Zoya’s Etta

A deeper red with a bit of blackening. This is one of the deepest reds that I’ve seen from Zoya! I’ve been getting into deeper lipsticks lately, and I wish I could find the matching color for this. (I probably do have matching eyeshadow and eyeliner, but don’t want to wear all of them at once. That’s a bit too much of a good thing, I think.)

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Sangria

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Sangria

Posted on Friday, at

Looking for a burgundy eyeliner? Not red, not maroon, but burgundy? Sephora’s got you covered with Sangria. This shade wasn’t part of the original Contour Eye Pencil lineup. It is waterproof, and applies fairly smoothly. It isn’t as easy to keep the pencil sharp, though, so if you want a sharp wing you may be happier using a tiny brush like elf’s Smudge Brush to apply this.

I was interested in a deep blue that wasn’t blackened! The polish is definitely deep blue…but it’s a bit uneven. Even with two coats, you can see scattered thin spots.

Zoya’s Ruthie

I have kept my eye out for colors like this, like Veronica - a lovely winter-rose. The formula is standard Zoya creme, but this bottle was a little on the thicker side. The polish didn’t entirely level out as smoothly as I would have liked, though it did come close.

Too Faced’s Life’s A Festival: La Crème Mystical Lipstick collection

Too Faced’s Life’s A Festival: La Crème Mystical Lipstick collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

Too Faced released this mini collection of duotone lipsticks to go along with the other items in its Life’s a Festival collection. (The Unicorn Tears shade shows up in several forms in Life’s a Festival.) These lipsticks are supposed to be a duotone: a base shade, and then an interference shimmer effect. Fairy Tears, which appears yellow, goes on with such a strong pink interference that it might as well be a semisheer pink. Mermaid Tears should have...
