Scaredy Cat Cosmetics’ Cirrinha

Scaredy Cat Cosmetics’ Cirrinha

Thursday at 7:15 AM: I have a few similar colors…but not many. Which is odd, because this shade looks good on me, adds a little depth without too much shadowing, and complements my eye color very nicely! Then again, it probably isn’t a shade that lots of other people reach for habitually - which would be why not many vendors make too many deeper orange eyeshadows (or eyeliners, or…much of anything for the eyes in this color.)

CND’s Vinyulx Naked Naiveté (195)

CND’s Vinyulx Naked Naiveté (195)

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: The color is nice, a softer pink that leans just barely toward the beige end…but the formula! It’s so disappointing. The first manicure I did with this polish, I thought: well, maybe my nails just need some TLC. So I buffed and polished my nails, wiped them with polish remover, and tried again. Nope, still uneven. Less so, but…still uneven. Okay, maybe I made the first coat too thick, or didn’t wait long enough. So the next day I tried…

Beauty from the Earth’s The Color of Magic collection

Beauty from the Earth’s The Color of Magic collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Not a kit, but definitely a themed collection. This was released before I became a regular BFTE customer, and by the time I found out that, yes, these colors had indeed formed a collection, BFTE had already passed into its v2 phase. Customers collaborated with Crystal, the original owner of BFTE, to come up with the shade names. Three of the original shades in this collection - Castle in the Sky, Hocus Pocus, and Poison Brew - are no longer…

BareMinerals’ A New Leaf kit

BareMinerals’ A New Leaf kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: I don’t have a price on this one, but based on other three-eyeshadow kits from QVC I feel safe saying that it was probably USD$32.00. The colors were all warmer - even the green, leaned…

BareMinerals’ Plush Purple

BareMinerals’ Plush Purple

Monday at 10:25 AM: This color is…really interesting. It leans warmer applied dry. Applied wet, it’s a cooler purple - even after the mixing medium (plain water, in my case) has dried and set. The color payoff is good,…

Lost in Makeupland’s Libertine

Lost in Makeupland’s Libertine

Monday at 7:15 AM: Not one of my favorite shadows from Lost in Makeupland. In the pot, this color looks like it will be a deep navy shimmer; but when it’s applied, the shadow loses a good portion of…

My runaway brain: makeup organization

My runaway brain: makeup organization

Sunday at 1:15 PM: I knew that I would need a larger train case, because even if I only had 20% of my items in said traincase, it would have to be pretty big. Here’s a photo of my…

BareMinerals’ Get Started Complexion Enhancers kit

BareMinerals’ Get Started Complexion Enhancers kit

Sunday at 10:15 AM: I have no idea when this kit was originally released, or how much it cost. I can’t even really guesstimate, because I don’t know if these items were small (eyeshadow-size) or large (regular size for…

BareMinerals’ Perfect Blushes Volume III kit

BareMinerals’ Perfect Blushes Volume III kit

Sunday at 7:14 AM: Three of BE’s warmer-leaning blushes. I have all of these, but they aren’t colors I find myself reaching for very often, simply because they don’t suit my skintone as well as other blushes that I…

BareMinerals’ Big and Bright eyeliner in Sage

BareMinerals’ Big and Bright eyeliner in Sage

Saturday at 7:15 AM: I really had hopes for this color. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough olive, and there’s too much blackening. The end result is sparse gilded-olive glitter and a little bit of green eyeliner over an uneven sooty…
