Another of the dual-colored Galaxy micas from TKB! The colorchange in this one is fairly visible, unlike Mr. Fantastic’s near-imperceptible shift. I love the base shade and the shift color, but I’d have preferred a satin or shimmer finish.

Sephora’s Professionnel Powder Brush

I bought this because a friend of mine - a former beauty blogger who’s since turned to other ventures - absolutely loved this brush for applying her foundation. I tried it for both powder and liquids, and it does work very nicely as a buffing brush. I wish that it hadn’t been discontinued!

Kiko Cosmetics’ Jelly Jungle Waterproof Mascara in Blue Horizon

CND’s Vinylux Uninhibited (279)
Posted on Wednesday, at
Not a pastel, not a neon. More like a near-neon color at maybe 60% brightness. It fits well with the rest of the Boho Spirit collection, looking either springy or summery. My thumbnails are always difficult to paint because they’re so uneven - lots of horizontal ridges and pits - so seeing thinner spots on my thumbnail isn’t a kiss of death for a nail polish formula. The polish isn’t as thick as many other polishes, but it’...

BareMinerals’ Buxom Full-on Fantasy kit
Posted on Tuesday, at
Eight mini lip colors, all previously released or permanently available (except for Sangria.) Great to break apart for stocking stuffers (or an advent calendar.) There’s a fairly decent mix of shades and color intensities.
