NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Turquoise Storm

NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Turquoise Storm

Friday at 7:15 AM: This isn’t a metallic full shimmer - it’s more of a “scattered aqua microglitter sparkle” on top of a rich royal-azure blue that has enough depth not to look like it came from the 1970s. If you have cool coloring and almost any eye color, this will accentuate it very nicely. The shimmer is light, and not prone to fallout. The liner stays blendable for a minute or...

Polish Me Silly’s Sunset Beach

Polish Me Silly’s Sunset Beach

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: A solid, near-primary pair of colors. The polish shift is not soft or infinitesimal, though it is more visible on longer nails when the bed stays yellow and the tip turns orange. The yellow is even, eventually, fairly well behaved: it took me three coats, but the yellow actually gave me even coverage that was…well, if not opaque, it was not patchy. The polish also has a faint pink...

NYX Cosmetics’ Dazed and Diffused Blurring Lip Stick collection

NYX Cosmetics’ Dazed and Diffused Blurring Lip Stick collection

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: Twelve firmer lipsticks in wood cores, with a wide flat brush at the end. These are similar to the Buxom Plumplines - but they come in a wider range of colors. (For instance, if a blue ever shows up in the Plumpline collection, I’ll be VERY surprised!) These are firmer than traditional lipsticks and wider than most lip liners, so it’s easier to apply them with a solid...

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Leviticus

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Leviticus

Monday at 7:15 AM: This color is almost autumnal - but almost not. To me, it’s a little brighter than more brown-toned, genuine “rust orange” shades. This could almost be a winter-holiday accent. At any rate, aside from the shade: this color applies well either wet or dry, and has a metallic finish either way. This is a warmer shade, but is almost neutral enough that folks with cool undertones can wear this...

Covergirl’s Exhibitionist Lash Primer

Friday at 7:15 AM: When I first opened this, I thought I’d gotten a bad tube. I went to the store and bought another one, specifically checking the date on the package…and lo and behold, when I...

Colourpop’s Blush Stix in Cool It

Colourpop’s Blush Stix in Cool It

Thursday at 10:15 AM: This is a very soft, cool pink with neutral tones. I have trouble getting it to show up on my skin. It is a perfect “first blush” shade for fair and light skintones - soft...

Milani Cosmetics’ Color Statement Matte Lipstick in Matte Drama

Milani Cosmetics’ Color Statement Matte Lipstick in Matte Drama

Thursday at 7:15 AM: I am not personally fond of brighter red lipsticks. I like how I look in deeper reds. This one - a cool-toned red with a velvety finish - is very much Dramatic Me. It’s...

Color Club’s You Had Me At Aloha

Color Club’s You Had Me At Aloha

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: A very bright red with no softness to it. This thing glows, no matter what lighting it’s in. Two coats gave me full opacity and smooth coverage. There’s a shine to the finished...

Girly Bits Cosmetics’ My Nink and Drails

Girly Bits Cosmetics’ My Nink and Drails

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: I liked the look of this one in photos - the midtone purple, the metallic flakies, the internal luminosity of the finished manicure. I kind of wish that the flakies had been larger, but the...
