Real Techniques’ Lash / Brow Groomer

Real Techniques’ Lash / Brow Groomer

Posted on Saturday, at

I love this so very much! Mostly because of the metal-tined lash comb with a plastic cover/shield, but also because of the longer handle. Unlike some of the other Real Techniques original brush line, this one doesn’t have a flared base so it won’t stand on its own without falling. When Real Techniques updated their brush line, they updated this tool, also. It no longer has the brow grooming comb, only the lash comb - with its...

Revlon’s Super Length Waterproof Mascara

Revlon’s Super Length Waterproof Mascara

Posted on Friday, at

Revlon’s current mascara lineup is their take on the “personalized mascara” trend, with different brushes for the different formulas. I was hesitant to try their new mascara line. I still very much miss Lash Potion. But I figured…okay, they’re BOGOFF at Ulta, I’ll give some of them a shot. One of the three mascaras that I bought was this one, the Super Length. I like mascara that lengthens and defines, so it was a calculated guess...

Sigil Inspired’s Born in Crocus

Sigil Inspired’s Born in Crocus

Posted on Thursday, at

Lighter, slightly greyed purple base with green-gold shimmer layer. The color applies easily and the pigmentation levels are good. The duotone effects show up in any light, but show up best on a curved surface (like many duotone shadows.)

Wet n Wild’s Megaglo Highlighter palette

Wet n Wild’s Megaglo Highlighter palette

Posted on Tuesday, at

I bought this when I saw that it had three colors not in the regular Megaglo collection. The highlighters are full-size, meaning that the palette itself is slightly larger than a paperback book. (Though not nearly as thick.) The packaging is not the most durable - I’m not a huge fan of cardboard palette packaging unless it’s very very small - but there’s a clear fitted “cover” over the colors, inside the “lid”, so while it isn’...

TKB Trading’s Brown Oxide

TKB Trading’s Brown Oxide

Posted on Monday, at

This flirts with being a warmish color, but it’s neutral enough that I can wear it without the color clashing (ever so gently) with my undertones. This is a straight colorant with minimal other ingredients, so it needs special application to go on and stay on. This can work as an eyeshadow or face color. It might work as a brow color, though you’d probably want at least a clear gel to hold the color in place.

Tarte Cosmetics’ Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler

Tarte Cosmetics’ Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler

Posted on Saturday, at

I first bought this back in 2009. I hadn’t regularly used eyelash curlers before that point because I had too many incidents of accidentally ripping out my own lashes when my hand would slip on the grips. Not to mention pinching my eyelids or the skin behind my eyes while trying to get as close to the roots of my lashes as possible…well, eyelash curling just didn’t impress me as something I really wanted to keep doing. (I...

Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara in Jungle Green

Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara in Jungle Green

Posted on Friday, at

These Smart Colour mascaras remind me of the old CoverGirl Exact EyeLights. Many of them have a blackened undertone, and a slight tint of color that’s not overtly visible but nonetheless is still present and detectable. The formula is a little thin, and the brush definitely helps separate and define my lashes. I find that I get results that I like best if I either apply two or three coats, or if I apply a single coat over a...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Mermaid You Look

Shiro Cosmetics’ Mermaid You Look

Posted on Thursday, at

Take the COTM color TARDIS and take away most of the shimmer, and you get this lagoon-blue. The color is more intense when it’s applied wet, and the shimmer tends to be less even and a bit more visible than when it’s applied dry. I prefer using this as an eyeliner. The blue is bold without being a heavily saturated color, so while it does blend, it tends to sheer out a bit.
