Zoya’s Giada

Zoya’s Giada

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: This is such a wonderfully smooth metallic finish…there’s very little visible graininess or texturing at all, it’s just shiny and light-reflecting. The color is very rich but not so dark it’s almost black (Zoya’s done a few of those.)

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ The Premiums collection

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ The Premiums collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: I love multichromes! I get so excited about multichrome eyeshadows or nail polishes…and then get so let down when they turn out to be sheer, need four coats to see the multichromatic effects, or need a certain product to make the colorshifts more visible than “a hint”. When I first saw posts about the Premium eyeshadows from Dawn Eyes Cosmetics, I thought: there’s got to be a catch. Do you have to use a glitter glue? Do they...

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Mystical

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Mystical

Monday at 10:15 AM: Mystical covers the cool end of the spectrum pretty thoroughly. The purple shows up more strongly at extreme angles, and when it shows up it’s a rich violet.

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Rocket

Friday at 7:15 AM: This color is a little more orange and a little less pink than it appeared on the vendor-site photos. Still…it’s not so orange that I can’t wear it. The formula on this...

Sobe Botanicals’ Insomnia

Sobe Botanicals’ Insomnia

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Ended up being a bit softer than I thought it would be; but it’s a nice quasi-neutral. I would have preferred a shimmer or satin finish to pearl - buffing down the finish loses...

Zoya’s Oceane

Zoya’s Oceane

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: This is a very intense, saturated, lovely color of blue. On the site, it looks more teal-ish and is described as “turquoise”. Well..some turquoise does come in this shade of blue, though most is...

BareMinerals’ Box of Wonders kit

BareMinerals’ Box of Wonders kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: The “massive sampler” holiday kit (there is no kit comparable to Wealth of Beauty or Bells and Whistles, both of which had fullsize items.) This can be a good gift for someone who wants to...

TKB Trading’s Up The Hill

TKB Trading’s Up The Hill

Monday at 10:15 AM: An autumnal accent that looks warm-leaning, but isn’t so warm-leaning that I (neutral-cool coloring) have trouble wearing it. It has orange tones, so it complements and intensifies my blue-grey eye color.
