My Pretty Zombie’s Thunderpants

My Pretty Zombie’s Thunderpants

Posted on Monday, at

I have always thought that Thundernuts, Cookiepants, and Thunderpants were a sort of unofficial color trio based only on the name similarity. I love the other two colors. This one…just isn’t up to snuff. It doesn’t have as much color payoff, and while it would have been nice to have a cooler brown in the trio, it would have been better if it wasn’t semisheer.

Zoya’s Ripley

Zoya’s Ripley

Posted on Saturday, at

“Burgundy-rose” may sound like a weird description…but this is a deeper shade with some brown and rose undertones, rather than the deeper brown tones that oxblood nail colors have. This is just barely softened, but it’s still in the vampy range.

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Run the World

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Run the World

Posted on Friday, at

This color hasn’t made it into the Suede Matte Lipstick line yet…but I want it there! I would love to wear this color as a lipstick!

Colourpop’s Over The Rainbow kit

Posted on Tuesday, at

I already owned half of these colors when this kit was released, so I bought the individual shades I did not have. It is a rainbow, in that it has red-orange-yellow-green-blue-purple. It doesn’t have an indigo, or even an indigo-ish - it would have been kind of nice to have an actual ROY G BIV. But the colors that it does have do cover the rainbow. The two brightest shades, Untz and Electric Daisy, are a little patchier than...

NYX Cosmetics’ Slide On Eye Pencil collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

I’m a sucker for eyeliner pencils. I really am. I had most of these colors from other lines already, but I wanted to compare them. These aren’t stated as being waterproof, and they do last a little longer if I paint them with sealer; but they go on very smoothly and stay fairly well. I also like that they include the standard black and brown, which are what many people want; but also have metallic olive and bronze....

This applies dry well enough, but it’s not 100% even and because it’s a lighter color it isn’t always easy for me to see where it needs to be filled in a little more. Once it sets into place, it can be blended a bit more easily.
