Colourpop’s BFF Volumizing Mascara in Pink Inc.

Colourpop’s BFF Volumizing Mascara in Pink Inc.

Posted on Friday, at

Like all of the BFF mascaras, this has some texture issues. It’s a little thinner than some of them, so it doesn’t clump up as badly as some (like Yellow Goodbye) but it does flake fairly easily unless you use a waterproofing top coat over it. (I haven’t tried this yet, but I want to see if spraying Blue Marble SELR onto a brush, then moving that brush over the lashes, will work to seal the mascara…...

Aromaleigh v2’s Diapha highlighter

Aromaleigh v2’s Diapha highlighter

Posted on Thursday, at

Very soft gold with a pale base. It’s easy to over-apply this because it’s so sheer and the shimmer is very soft and subtle. It’s more of a sheer color wash than a shimmer-highlighter. It’s also one of the face colors that Aromaleigh has kept around.

Maybelline’s Colorsensational Lipstick in Blissful Berry (410)

Maybelline’s Colorsensational Lipstick in Blissful Berry (410)

This almost looks like a very pigmented lip balm instead of a lipstick. This was a more recent purchase, so maybe the formula had changed from the bulk of the Colorsensational lipsticks that I bought between 2011-2017. I did want a darker shade, but this works for me for daily wear when I want that “darker balm” shade but that’s as much color as I want on my lips.

Color Club’s Blaze

This is another bright candied red - almost an orange-red. It’s bright, right on the edge of neon, but I’m not sure if it is a neon color.

CND’s Vinylux Powerful Hematite (334)

CND’s Vinylux Powerful Hematite (334)

Deep charcoal with a subtle, sunken shimmer effect. It’s a little brushstrokey, like a frost-finish polish. I like getting my hands on another dark grey polish, but I wish that it was either a cleaner shimmer finish or a creme.

Makeup Revolution’s Colour Book Shadow Palette CB05 kit

Makeup Revolution’s Colour Book Shadow Palette CB05 kit

Posted on Tuesday, at

This is one of five “colour book” palettes: blacks/greys/whites (CB01), browns/golds/creams (CB02), reds/yellows/oranges (CB03), purples/pinks (CB04), and this one, greens/blues (CB05). Each has the same basic structure: 24 mattes and 24 corresponding shimmers separated by a plastic barrier, each palette a mixture of eyeshadows and pressed pigments. I chose to get this one instead of the others because it had the fewest ultra-light colors (MUR’s lighter shades don’t always have good color...

Colourpop’s BFF Mascara collection

I love the different colors - and the brighter colors! (And the white mascara.) I love that they’re easily accessible. I don’t love that they aren’t available in a waterproof formula. The wand is a fairly standard “bottle-brush” wand with a helix-twist that does a fairly decent job of getting color on most of the lashes, though to get the endmost and innermost lashes I found it easier to just use the end of the wand and...

L’Oréal’s Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Strawberry Blonde (341)

L’Oréal’s Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Strawberry Blonde (341)

Posted on Monday, at

This is similar to the Hilite Red interference powder from TKB Trading - except that the base is a bit pinker, and the color is a bit…gummier? clumpier? I’m not sure how to describe it; but even for the 24HR Eye Shadow collection, this is one of the clumpier shadows. Instead of an evenly-spreading pale pink, you look like you’re trying to spread wet snow with a butter knife. This isn’t the least cooperative shadow in...

TKB Trading’s Pearl Peach

TKB Trading’s Pearl Peach

Posted on Monday, at

This color appears deeper depending on whether it’s applied dry or wet. It isn’t just the finish, it’s the base color. The dry application is a deeper orange with less visible pearl/frost finish. I use it as an accent color; but I think I would have liked to have this shade minus any “pearl” finish.

Jordana’s Classic Color Lipliner in Bare Blush

Jordana’s Classic Color Lipliner in Bare Blush

Posted on Saturday, at

I like this color because it’s a not-quite-nude color on me. It’s a little deeper than my skintone with very faint pink notes. I can use this as a lipliner for colors like Touch of Spice, Lolita, Matte Naked, or Rose-Brown.
