Color Club’s Best Buds

Color Club’s Best Buds

Posted on Wednesday, at

A nice enough color - not a personal favorite, but lovers of pink would like it. It wants to be a bit streaky, and a little uneven. I think a third coat may have made the mani fully opaque, but two was close enough for my preferences. The polish itself was a little less durable than regular Color Club polishes, but not as soft as some other matte polishes (or even the much older metallics.) The scent was still an...

Wet n Wild’s Fantasy Makers paint palettes: Brights and Metallics

Wet n Wild’s Fantasy Makers paint palettes: Brights and Metallics

Posted on Tuesday, at

Last year I picked up the Metallics palette, but never got around to using it. This year I picked up a second Metallics, and a Brights. (The metallic-finish colors appealed to me more, which is why I picked one up last year.) This year I finally got around to swatching them both…and there’s a clear winner. It ain’t the metallic palette.

This was another SNAP cat benefit color, released a year after the SNAP Cats Benefit Collection. This has a undercolor of soft smoke silver with a green-gold interference. The color almost looks like a heavily-patinaed yellow.

Fyrinnae’s Exquisites: Flawless

There isn’t a highly visible shift on this one. It moves from one cool color (medium green) to the next (medium navy). The color payoff is good, and if you want a rich metallic green, this one’s excellent. The multichorme effect is just very subtle, compared to some of the other Exquisites.

This looked like a buff cameo-rose in vendor photos, and in some lights it can lean a little warmer. But my overall impression is of a medium-light warm brown creme, like very pale milk chocolate. The formula is great - it self-levels very well, and doesn’t show brushstrokes or minor imperfections in the nail. While I personally would have liked a color that was a bit more red or pink, it’s a nice “nude” neutral polish shade.

Kiko Cosmetics’ Jelly Jungle Waterproof Mascara collection

Kiko Cosmetics’ Jelly Jungle Waterproof Mascara collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

When I saw colored mascaras that were waterproof, I was thrilled! They had been marked down to 40%, so they were on their way out. I bought the red, the blue, and the brown. While the formulas are on the thinner side, and the color applied is less obvious than some might wish, I liked the color that showed up. The mascaras are waterproof, with an interesting twist: I could get one full day of wear out of them with no...
