Olay’s Regenerist Regenerating Serum

Olay’s Regenerist Regenerating Serum

Posted on Saturday, at

The name’s a bit repetitive and redundant…but it works great for me. This has been part of my daily routine since 2011. I started using this because it was available at Costco in a large-size bottle, at a lower price than I’d pay at the drugstore. I chose the serum because serums are moisturizers, but with a greater concentration of the active ingredient(s). I don’t have to use much on my face - just a small...

Kiko Cosmetics’ Jelly Jungle Waterproof Mascara in Scarlet Spirit

Kiko Cosmetics’ Jelly Jungle Waterproof Mascara in Scarlet Spirit

Posted on Friday, at

I was pretty interested when I noticed these mascaras. (The collection had been out for a while, but I don’t regularly visit the Kiko website, so…I’m a bit late to the game.) The color selection wasn’t huge, but the three that are not standard mascara colors are a decent mix. I ended up buying the red, blue, and brown. The upside to these is that in addition to being colored mascara and being not too expensive,...

My Pretty Zombie’s SSSSSS!

My Pretty Zombie’s SSSSSS!

Posted on Thursday, at

Slightly blackened, so it leaves behind a bit of sooty residue; but it does smoke out well. Similar to the old Aromaleigh color Drama Green, but a brighter green and with scattered gold highlights.

Zoya’s McKenna

Zoya’s McKenna

Posted on Wednesday, at

I thought this color would be a little more neutral but a little brighter, a bit like the colors in the Touch collection. There are some putty-grey tones to this that make my hands a bit red-looking when I wear it. It applies well and the coverage is good, but I don’t know that I’ll reach for it too often.

Zoya’s Beth

Zoya’s Beth

Posted on Wednesday, at

The formula is just a little bit thick, and tends to want to show streaks. But it’s a very nice shade with great opacity, a softened shimmer finish, and an understated color and metallic aspect. Zoya’s Jules was somewhat similar, but a bit deeper and a little more yellow. I like both Jules and Beth, but will grab Beth when I want to look a little more “normal”. It’s a stealth-shimmer. I’m glad to have this...

Shiro Cosmetics’ Rage & Calm collection

Shiro Cosmetics’ Rage & Calm collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

The shades are a cross between neutrals and a blaze of color. This is the first collection where people can buy full-sized in Shiro’s traditional loose formula, or pressed. You can get singles or the collection/palette. I went for the loose formula, naturally; but from swatches I’ve seen, there’s utterly no color difference between the two formulas. If you thought you may have been interested in Sleek’s Spirit Animal but wanted something without a cringey...

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Poppy Flaunts

Aromaleigh v2.1’s Poppy Flaunts

Posted on Monday, at

Almost an autumnal bright-rust shade, but it does lean pretty red. The color payoff is excellent, and it doesn’t have too much difficulty mixing with water. If you want a smooth color, this might not be the best choice, because the gold and silver flecks are definitely visible and large enough to be individually distinct.

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...
