NYX Cosmetics’ Dazed and Diffused Blurring Lipstick in Get Down

NYX Cosmetics’ Dazed and Diffused Blurring Lipstick in Get Down

Thursday at 7:15 AM: This red leans far enough into the “rose” zone that it looks like a hard-edged fuchsia with some depth. It’s a great color for me! And in this format it applies so easily, it’s its own lip liner, and it doesn’t bleed. Sadly there isn’t a whole lot of longevity with this shade - I get about two hours before I need touch-ups, less time if...

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Everybody Knows Shit’s Fucked

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Everybody Knows Shit’s Fucked

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: This is such a gorgeous polish. I kind of wish that I’d gotten more than one bottle! A purple base with a mid-spectrum shift and red microsparkle, I think it’s a jelly formula. I did have to have three coats to get full opacity and color depth. It reminds me - slightly - of Clarins’ 230 nail polish (aka Unicorn Pee) but with a cool base/primary shade rather...

Ibcccndc’s Xpress Control Waterproof Mascara collection

Ibcccndc’s Xpress Control Waterproof Mascara collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: Lots of private-label companies have makeup for sale on Ebay and Amazon (as well as Aliexpress.) So how do you find the gems amid the junk? By taking the occasional chance, apparently. And now I can tell all of you: these colorful waterproof mascaras from Ibcccndc are a good choice. They aren’t waterproof - they do wash off with water - but they don’t smudge or flake away,...

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Heiress

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Heiress

Monday at 7:15 AM: A rich, saturated medium-deep purple with blue and silver microglitter and a shimmer finish. This color can take over paler colors in the look, so use as little as needed and then add more after you’ve done the initial blending.

NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Gilded Taupe

NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Gilded Taupe

Friday at 7:15 AM: I love that this is almost a tan base with an aged-gold shimmer over the top. It’s closer to a neutral color than a yellow-gold, so that might make it wearable to people who...

elf’s Sheer Slick Lipstick in Dragon fruit

elf’s Sheer Slick Lipstick in Dragon fruit

Thursday at 7:15 AM: This color is closer to a lipstick than the other shades in this collection: the color is a bit more pronounced, a little more buildable, and less sheer overall. It applies more evenly and the...

Zoya’s Corinna

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: One of only four colors from the Splash collection that I picked up. Like Fisher, this color is kind of a lighter milky shade. It’s also semi-opaque. Three full coats doesn’t hide the...

Zoya’s Summer

Zoya’s Summer

Tuesday at 4:15 PM: The sole non-creme finish polish of the collection, Summer is a lovely medium-ocean-blue with gold shimmer. I have some other blue cremes that are close to the base, but none of them have the gold...

Zoya’s Skipper

Zoya’s Skipper

Tuesday at 3:15 PM: A matte (or near-matte - it’s not the standard creme finish, but it does reflect back some light) that gives me full coverage after two coats. The formula does show the worst of my...
