Zoya’s Yuna

Zoya’s Yuna

I wanted this color as soon as I saw it. It looked like a muted version of Zoya’s Edyta, a polish that I absolutely love. Yuna is more like the counterpart to Edyta: more grey than green, not quite as much duochrome action but some, and also a microglitter polish like Edyta.

Pretty color…but sadly, the finish is a bit streaky. (Sometimes I can get away with wearing two coats, most times I have to wear three just to be sure that my mani is completely opaque.)

Deep green creme with the faint hints of olive. In some lights, this resembles Zoya’s Shawn, which is not one of my personal favorite shades of green. (It’s just barely too yellow for me.) Ever Green is a bit deeper and cooler, and the formula is certainly a lot better than Shawn.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Worldbreaker collection

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Worldbreaker collection

I wasn’t hugely attracted to many of the shades in this collection - many black colors with multicolored or duochrome shimmers, but…that’s an awful lot of black. Even if I used them as liners there isn’t quite enough differentiation for my preferences. If you’re an aesthete who prefers blacks and dark greys, though…you’ve definitely hit the jackpot.

It isn’t always the easiest thing to find a really good orange eyeshadow, so I’m glad when I run across them!

Cherry Culture’s Jumbo Shadow Liner in Studio

Cherry Culture’s Jumbo Shadow Liner in Studio

Posted on Saturday, at

This could have been such a lovely, interesting blue! It wasn’t too deep navy, it wasn’t too bright. It applied evenly. Sadly, while it was all of those things, it has almost no staying power. Keep in mind, this is medium blue - a color that, no matter what the medium, tends to want to stain or at least leave behind some trace of its application.

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Mushroom

Urban Decay’s 24-7 Eye Pencil in Mushroom

Posted on Saturday, at

Mushroom is a color that sounds like it could be soft, subtle, interesting. It’s nearly invisible. That’s kind of disappointing. If all you want is the silvery satin-pearl with some faint shadows of color visible beneath it, you’re good. But I can’t get definition from this color, I get precious little else…I like subtle makeup, but this is too subtle for me, even when I’m trying for a “no-makeup” look.
