My Pretty Zombie’s Armadillo Debutante

My Pretty Zombie’s Armadillo Debutante

A “neutral”/soft shade with a twist. (The blue can be buffed away…but if you don’t want the blue shimmer, why get this color?) I have a few other colors that are similar to this base, but I can’t think of any mauves or medium-light red-browns with a blue interference effect layer. The base color is good for a very soft blush or face powder (similar to Bare Escentuals’ Glee or Soft Focus True), and the blue...

CND’s Vinylux Down by the Bae (357)

CND’s Vinylux Down by the Bae (357)

Posted on Sunday, at

The color of the sky at the beach on a sunny morning. Other nail polish companies have released light blue shades, but not too many of them have this combination of color opacity that isn’t too vivid or overly bright. This is the gold-standard for the CND Vinylux formula, with really easy application, a flawless finish, and ten-day longevity.

Colourpop’s BFF Liquid Liner in The Hills

Colourpop’s BFF Liquid Liner in The Hills

Posted on Friday, at

I love this color of liner! I wish that there had been a mascara in this color of green. The Kiss n Teal is green, but it’s brighter. (I also would have loved to have something that’s halfway between this color and evergreen.) This felt tip provides a pretty smooth line. I don’t regularly (or even semi-regularly) apply cat eye liner, so I can’t speak to how well the pen works for that, but when I...

NYX Cosmetics’ Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Bermuda Bronze

NYX Cosmetics’ Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Bermuda Bronze

This is not a shade that works well on me. It is barely visible on me if I apply it like I apply my other highlighters. If I apply it more heavily, it looks like a soft contour. It works best for me as a lid highlighter.

Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Violet Vixen (830)

Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Violet Vixen (830)

Almost - but not quite - a glowy medium violet. I don’t like the way it can bunch up when applied, and I wish that it was easier to apply cleanly with a single stroke. Nevertheless, I was happy to find another truly purple lipstick. Not cabernet, not plum, not raisin…violet purple.

Color Club’s New-tral

Color Club’s New-tral

Another lighter neutral creme. The formula is fairly good, but a little thicker. The polish has a tendency to hold onto brush strokes, and it takes longer than usual to cure. (Maybe it’s just an older bottle.) The coverage is fairly solid, and I do like the color. But if given a choice, I don’t know that I’d re-buy this polish unless I find out that I just got a bad/older bottle. The Meet Your Match...

Zoya’s Darby

Zoya’s Darby

Posted on Wednesday, at

This…is an odd one. The photos of Darby show it as more of a blue, and it can look that way; but it’s definitely greyed. I wish that the effect layer was a little stronger. I may have gotten a not-so-great batch, but I was expecting much more of an interference-blue-pearl effect. The polish does apply well and has standard Zoya durability.
