NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Magenta Shock

NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Magenta Shock

Thursday at 7:15 AM: I like the color very much! But I’m less fond of its application. It’s thin, and while it can build it doesn’t do so easily. Best to apply this one with a slower hand, so you don’t have to try go reapply or fill in.

Zoya’s Tasha

Zoya’s Tasha

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: I have other brown foils, but they’re warmer, or a little lighter, or they have red and silver microglitter. (Soleil, the other brown foil from this collection, is much more of a copper than a brown.) It applies very easily and evenly; and has the smoother feel that all Zoya foil-finish polishes have.

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Weird and Wonderful Creatures collection

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Weird and Wonderful Creatures collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: A collection of eyeshadows, originally monthly GWPs, starting in June 2018 and going through October 2020. This second themed-GWP series followed Les Douze Mois and was followed, in turn, by Vintage Aromaleigh. While there are some colors that I missed which, looking at swatches, I would have liked to pick up (Aye Aye looks like a bronzey-brown that would have looked good on me) but for the most part I’m satisfied...

My Pretty Zombie’s Prune Whip

My Pretty Zombie’s Prune Whip

Monday at 7:15 AM: Medium lavender with grey tones that shows the deepest color when applied dry over primer. When foiled, it shows a pearl finish that softens the color from stormy lavender to a not-quite-pastel version. This eyeshadow applies well and blends fairly nicely - you get the color blending, not just the pearl finish (which happens sometimes with pearl shades, in my experience.)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Burgundy (56)

Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Burgundy (56)

Friday at 7:15 AM: When I bought this, I thought…but wait, wasn’t there already a Burgundy Stick Shadow from Kiko? Yes, there was. It was more what I personally picture as “burgundy” - it was deeper, and...

NYX Cosmetics’ Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Be You Boo

NYX Cosmetics’ Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Be You Boo

Thursday at 7:15 AM: While we all stayed locked down, Pride merch still hit the pipelines. And of course, as usual, NYX got in the game. They had a rainbow collection of eyeliners (regular stick liners, though, not the...

Different Dimension’s Look for the Helpers

Different Dimension’s Look for the Helpers

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: The most visible colors in this soft-shift polish are light slate blue and copper-red; but you can catch hints of gold, green, and a softened violet. The polish is still semisheer with two coats, when...

Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Palette in Golden Sugar

Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Palette in Golden Sugar

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: This is one of the first blush palettes that I bought from Makeup Revolution. (The first was one of their Iconic Trios.) While the colors look interesting in the pan, they all apply very…soft....

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Fidei Defensatrix

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Fidei Defensatrix

Monday at 7:15 AM: Medium-deep aged gold with what appears to be a brown base. This can work as a highlighter if you have deeper skin and apply sparingly. It’s very versatile, and the finish is even but...

NYX Cosmetics’ Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Opinionated

NYX Cosmetics’ Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Opinionated

Friday at 7:15 AM: I love the idea of this lip color - a deep, rich, cool red. Problem is, it makes my mouth look very very small, and any overdrawing look very very obvious. It applied well, except...
