Color Club’s Once Upon a Time

Color Club’s Once Upon a Time

Posted on Wednesday, at

This is an odd color - not quite green, not really brown. It’s an excellent neutral, though. The formula is barely thick - it does tend to want to hold on to brush strokes. If this happens with your bottle, this can be cleared with a drop or two of nail polish thinner. (No more than that, though! This really is just barely on the thick-ish side.) The color is a cross between Meow Cosmetics’ Leafless and Stark (both...

Makeup Revolution’s Life on the Dance Floor: Sparklers Palette

Makeup Revolution’s Life on the Dance Floor: Sparklers Palette

Posted on Tuesday, at

The brightest-hued palette from the Life on the Dance Floor quad. This isn’t quite a “rainbow” palette, but it does come close. It has several bright and saturated shades, along with a few lighter colors. I like that this has a few murkier colors (I think current nomenclature calls them “grungy”) along with the clearer shadows. It’s a nice complement to the more brown-toned, not quite-smokey-but-almost After Party palette.

Do you love pinks and purples? Well…look elsewhere. This palette probably had a lot of people very happy when they saw that amid the blue-green, grey, and bolder red-orange palettes was a beloved-by-(nearly-)all pink and purple palette. But wait a minute. Take a look at the colors. Do you see how many of them are lighter? Yeah. That’s a lot. And historically, those lighter colors from Makeup Revolution just don’t perform all that well. Many...

Notoriously Morbid’s Neutered

A very solid, well-behaved loose-powder deeper blue-green matte. This formula acts a bit like the old Aromaleigh v1 matte shadows.

One of three colors I grabbed from the Halfway to Halloween collection, released last June. I thought this color would have a more pronouncedly olive base. The color is a slightly olive green, and the red and gold and silver shimmer are visible, if scattered. The color applies very well and blends easily.

The polish is a medium red crossed with hot pink. There’s definite pink tones, but…it’s not just pink, nor even fuchsia-pink.

L’Oréal’s Infallible Pro Last Waterproof Eyeliner in Aubergine

L’Oréal’s Infallible Pro Last Waterproof Eyeliner in Aubergine

This purple ends up being a bit softer than it looks. It has red and gold sparkle, and the purple does give me definition, but it softens a bit so that while there is a firm demarcation where the color ends, it’s not such a bold color that it obviously looks like an eyeliner on me. It’s a “stealth liner.” (I don’t know how else to describe it!) This turned out to be one of my favorite...
