L’Oréal’s Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Midnight Blue (889)

L’Oréal’s Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Midnight Blue (889)

Posted on Monday, at

I seem to have an affinity for these darker blues. I have similar shades in eyeshadow, eyeliner, nail polish…every makeup item where you’d expect to be able to find rich near-navy blues. This applies very smoothly. Blending works, but it’s extremely pigmented so it can easily overwhelm softer shades.

A brownish orange with gold shimmer. This entire collection was a group of quasi-neutrals, similar to Meow’s Stripped. Most of these were deeper, though there were a few light colors. This is very much an orange-brown. The gold shimmer is very scattered, and acts more as an occasional highlight rather than a more typical shimmer effect layer.

This polish is an interesting color, but the formula is a little on the thinner side. I may try to use three coats next time, and see if that covers a little better. (It may also just have been my technique.)

As soon as I decided to try thermal polishes, I knew that I wanted a red-to-black thermal. Unfortunately, most of what I saw was brighter polishes, blues and purples, or whisper-soft pastel thermals. I finally found this from Cirque Colors - a brand that I’d heard of, but hadn’t tried to date. The polish is a brighter red when warm, and a deep black when cold. My nails are shorter in this set of photos so it’s...

Color Club’s All Charged Up

Color Club’s All Charged Up

I didn’t expect this polish to be so similar to the old OPI Pros and Bronze. It’s one of the two totally opaque polishes from Aura Energy (the other being That’s The Spirit), and there’s a faint colorchange visible at the extreme sides of the nail where the nail often curves slightly down into the nail bed. The sparkle isn’t as sharp in this shade, but this is definitely not a smooth finish. I get...

Nyx Cosmetics’ Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Halo

Nyx Cosmetics’ Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Halo

I don’t often use yellow eyeliner - but it’s good to have it available. This is a good pricepoint, and the liner applies decently but a single swipe isn’t necessarily full coverage. Applying it thicker gets you caking and cracking. For me, the main downfall of this liner is the same as all of the Vivid Brights eyeliners. It isn’t waterproof. The Epic Wear Liquid Liner in yellow is a slightly deeper version of the color,...

NYX Cosmetics’ Slide On Eye Pencil in Golden Bronze

NYX Cosmetics’ Slide On Eye Pencil in Golden Bronze

Posted on Friday, at

This is such a great liner color! It’s metallic without being brash, and it’s a warm medium bronze that looks great with my neutral-cool coloring and can look really good with so many other people: strongly warm undertones, medium-deep skintones, so many eye colors.

Milani Cosmetics’ Hypnotic Lights Powder Highlighter in Luster Light

Milani Cosmetics’ Hypnotic Lights Powder Highlighter in Luster Light

Posted on Thursday, at

This is much more of a “standard” soft highlighter. It’s not like Flashing Light - my personal favorite from this group - with its pink-rose undertone that makes that almost a blush+highlighter combo. There does seem to be some greyish or taupe base color, but it’s also incredibly sheer. Trying to build that up just gets more of the shimmer. Out of the entire set, this is my least favorite shade. It’s got a nice gold...
