elf’s Studio Flawless Face Brush

elf’s Studio Flawless Face Brush

Friday at 7:15 AM: One of the face brushes from elf that I actually like. The brush bristles are a little shorter, so there’s not a “flopping” effect; and they’re cut and shaped to be really good for large-area soft-focus applications. They don’t necessarily work so well for sharper contouring, but I’ve used this brush for highlighting, blush, and - of course - all-over finishing powder.

L’Oréal’s Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Waterproof Mascara

L’Oréal’s Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Waterproof Mascara

Thursday at 7:15 AM: This is my favorite of the Voluminous mascaras! The brush gives me definition and some length without being long or unwieldy enough that I can easily accidentally poke me in the eye. It does volumize fairly well, but I don’t get too much clumping. I would dearly love to see this formula and brush with either a violet or a burgundy mascara.

NYX Cosmetics’ Machinist: Ignite palette

NYX Cosmetics’ Machinist: Ignite palette

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: I was somewhat interested in these (in spite of myself!) when they came out…but I wasn’t going to pay $25 for them. I was lucky enough to buy them on sale shortly after Christmas 2018,...

Notoriously Morbid’s The Grand Empress

Notoriously Morbid’s The Grand Empress

Monday at 7:15 AM: This is such a great liner shade for me! I get the definition in a color other than black or brown, and the patched-copper shimmer adds an extra element of both a contrasting color and...

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Stockholm

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Stockholm

Friday at 7:15 AM: I hoped that this color would be a bit more pink than coral-brick…but, nope. The color depth is nice for a summer color for paler skintones. I was interested in trying some of the...

Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara in Warm Brown

Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara in Warm Brown

Thursday at 7:15 AM: I’m not entirely sure where they got the “warm” in the description. (Maybe they just wanted an adjective before the color-name and this one won the coin- or dart-toss.) I was hoping for a...

Zoya’s Evette

Zoya’s Evette

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: This is a deeper shade without being a blackened shade - very good for switching from the clearer richer cooler winter palette to brighter warmer shades. The formula is standard Zoya-creme quality that spreads nicely...

Color Club’s Hello Holo collection

Color Club’s Hello Holo collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: This collection was initially released at Walmart, so while the bottles were marked at $6.77, I think they may have otherwise retailed for $10.00 or $12.00. (Certainly, Head2Toe Beauty is selling over half of the colors for $9.95...
