L’Oréal’s Voluminous Original Mascara in Deep Green

L’Oréal’s Voluminous Original Mascara in Deep Green

Posted on Friday, at

As a mascara, this is okay. It doesn’t clump, it provides nice definition, and even though it isn’t waterproof it doesn’t smudge quite as fast as other non-waterproof formulas. But as a colored mascara? Specifically, a deep green mascara? Nope. I think that many of these Voluminous...

Milani Cosmetics’ Color Statement Matte Lipstick in Matte Love

Milani Cosmetics’ Color Statement Matte Lipstick in Matte Love

I thought this would be a deeper shade than it is, but that actually turned out quite well. This is a cool red - I don’t know how it will look on people with strong golden or olive tones. It applies well, and it’s slightly easier for me...

CND’s Vinylux in Get That Gold (368)

CND’s Vinylux in Get That Gold (368)

Similar to Grand Gala, but with no pink hints, completely opaque coverage, and with a slightly richer color payoff. It’s a great holiday color! I do wish that it had a smoother metallic finish, closer to a mirror finish. It would be a lovely background for stamping, or a...

These have the same type of applicator and packaging as elf’s Glitter Eyeshadow, but they’re a smooth metallic finish. (Also similar to elf’s Glitter Eyeshadows, there is no name on the tubes. Which means if you don’t think ahead and write the name on the lid...

Most of the colors in the Catherine Howard collection were similar to this - a very soft subtle base color with a metallic finish. This color almost performs better as a highlighter, for me, than an overall-lid color. It’s too green-grey to work on my face, but it’s...

NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Magenta Shock

I like the color very much! But I’m less fond of its application. It’s thin, and while it can build it doesn’t do so easily. Best to apply this one with a slower hand, so you don’t have to try go reapply or fill in.

I have other brown foils, but they’re warmer, or a little lighter, or they have red and silver microglitter. (Soleil, the other brown foil from this collection, is much more of a copper than a brown.) It applies very easily and evenly; and has the smoother feel that all...

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Weird and Wonderful Creatures collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

A collection of eyeshadows, originally monthly GWPs, starting in June 2018 and going through October 2020. This second themed-GWP series followed Les Douze Mois and was followed, in turn, by Vintage Aromaleigh. While there are some colors that I missed which, looking at swatches, I would have liked to pick up (Aye...

My Pretty Zombie’s Prune Whip

My Pretty Zombie’s Prune Whip

Posted on Monday, at

Medium lavender with grey tones that shows the deepest color when applied dry over primer. When foiled, it shows a pearl finish that softens the color from stormy lavender to a not-quite-pastel version. This eyeshadow applies well and blends fairly nicely - you get the color blending, not just the...
