Jordana’s Classic Lipliner in Spiced Rum

Jordana’s Classic Lipliner in Spiced Rum

Posted on Saturday, at

I thought this color would be just a little more red. Instead, it s a warm brown shade that doesn’t work too well on me. It applies very smoothly, and a bit more easily than some of the other pencils in this collection. I don’t really notice any staining, like I do with some of the darker, richer shades; but I wore this as my sole lip color for the better part of a day and while it...

CoverGirl’s Exhibitionist Waterproof Mascara

CoverGirl’s Exhibitionist Waterproof Mascara

Posted on Friday, at

This is a profoundly okay mascara. It applies without clumping, it doesn’t flake off during the first six hours of the day, it’s not wet enough to get all over my hooded eyelids if I dare to open my eyes before a full minute has passed, and the brush doesn’t poke me in the eye. It also has a waterproof formula, which means that I don’t end up looking raccoon-like after an hour or two, which...

Colourpop’s Blush Stix in Wallaby

Colourpop’s Blush Stix in Wallaby

I was so thrilled when I saw a purple in the original Blush Stix collection lineup! I was hoping that there would be a bit more oomph to this color, though. The base is a sheer pinkish lilac with a blue-purple duotone shimmer layer. While it’s lovely, it doesn’t really build very well. It’s difficult to over-apply this one.

I expected this color to be a little deeper because of the packaging. I thought it would lean more toward red-brown. I would still like to find that deeper red-brown, but I like the red-fuchsia! It applies very easily, the pencil keeps a point rather nicely but applies smoothly and without undue pressure. It won’t stay in place where my lip texture starts to change to the smoother, more lubricated inner-cheek surface, but once applied to my lips it...

Color Club’s Mrs. Robinson

Color Club’s Mrs. Robinson

Posted on Wednesday, at

This is another shade like Chelsea Girl or Island Vibes: it has a matte-like finish, and two coats gives you full coverage, but not necessarily 100% opaque. I love this shade as an early spring/late summer shade: it looks like azaleas in bloom. The formula is standard Color Club formula for cremes, even if this is a quasi-matte. It doesn’t clump up or show brushstrokes, it covers and self-levels wonderfully, and the finished manicure is clear and clean. If...
