NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Red lip cream in Knock Out

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Red lip cream in Knock Out

Friday at 7:15 AM: A little bit warm, but not really red-orange. I got this color on sale, and while it isn’t quite as interse a shade as Candy Apple, it’s close. Not sure how often I will wear this shade, though if I go over it with finishing powder that might soften the color a bit.

TKB Trading’s Matte Purple Pop

TKB Trading’s Matte Purple Pop

Thursday at 10:15 AM: This is such a great color! It’s almost indigo, but isn’t quite blue enough. It’s got a very solid color payoff. There is a little staining, but you can avoid that by using a cream base or primer.

TKB Trading’s Matte Blue Pop

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Halfway between “pool-queue chalk” and a cool sapphire. This does stain a bit, so make sure you use a base, like a cream shadow or shadow pencil.

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: The Dramatica colors (which are apparently repromotes from a previous year’s Halloween collection) remind me a bit of Aromaleigh’s old Bete Noire colors: they’re very definitely blackened, and make amazing eyeliners. The...

LaurEss’ Remembrance

Monday at 10:15 AM: This is almost a neutral brown. The frost finish isn’t quite smooth enough to be a pearl finish, but it doesn’t really block too much of the base shade. I don’t know...

TKB Trading’s Red Oxide

TKB Trading’s Red Oxide

Monday at 7:15 AM: I got this kind of on a whim. I knew that any oxide - that is, pure colorant either minimally adulterated by other ingredients or not diluted at all - would have extremely good color...

My Pretty Zombie’s Rabbit’s Foot

My Pretty Zombie’s Rabbit’s Foot

Thursday at 10:15 AM: This one softens and loses a lot of its intensity when you apply it. It doesn’t layer all that easily, either. On the upside, if you want a neutral-cool purple that’s a little...

TKB Trading’s Coral Reef Blue

TKB Trading’s Coral Reef Blue

Thursday at 7:15 AM: I got this because I wanted to see how it compared to Aquarius and Pisces Blue micas. This is definitely a turquoise, almost green. The color payoff is good, but since this is straight mica...
