NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipstick in Subversive Socialite

This is an interesting color, and I kind of like it…but I don’t love how it doesn’t apply evenly. It’s not totally a one-stroke lip color, but when I went back over my lips the color bunched up in some areas. There is a slight amount of staining, so the color does hang in there a bit. Possibly I could use this if I “borrowed” the wide flat brush applicators from my Buxom Plumpliners, and wore...

This doesn’t have as much color payoff as I wish that it did. If it were fully opaque I think it would be a fast favorite of mine - I like the color, and wouldn’t mind if it were a little more saturated. This isn’t quite as bad as the Covergirl lipsticks that himt at total opacity but won’t build worth a damn

The description sounds kind of bland, and honestly this is one of the least exciting Oil Slick colors. The pearl is a pale blue, and I occasionally see flashes of light green at certain angles. That gives the pale pink a nice distinction. Another potential downside for this polish is that I had to use three coats to get rid of all traces of VNL. I think that I’ll use this under thicker-lined black-polish nail art. The effects will...

Very springtime/early summer-y pink-leaning coral creme. I originally steered clear of this, thinking “I don’t wear pink polish that much, and I already have several, so I definitely don’t need this.” Once I saw it worn by other people and could see that it was more of a coral than a pink, I decided to

I love this movie, but I steered clear of the two “shapes” polishes. (I don’t know what they’re called, but they have large glitter or colored plastic pieces in them.) The polishes that I did get are lovely, if not 100% original.

The brown is the most saturated color in this set - and the green doesn’t mix well with water, so it ends up applying patchily. I like the concept of this palette - slate blue, deep brown, green, and yellow - but these specific items are a ‘nope’ from me.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Synchronous Fireflies

Shiro Cosmetics’ Synchronous Fireflies

Synchronous fireflies are one type of firefly. During the mass mating displays, the males actually do all flash at the same time, rather than all flashing at different times (not just once…but several times, but all together now.) There are regular viewing events, too - and looking at some of the videos, I see exactly where the color came from! This color can blend, but blending may take away the green and gold and leave the almost-blackened blue behind.

I love the base shade on this! It’s a very attractive turquoise-teal that is very intense, very bright. I’m less thrilled with how it looks when applied dry over primer: the base color loses a lot of its intensity, the color is uneven and almost sheer, and the gold is present, but it’s extremely subtle. When I want to use this, I plan ahead and lay down some glitter glue to enhance the blue.
