The Fall 2019 collection included three very autumnal shades, one more that could work as autumnal-ish, and one other…I’m not sure how a berry-purple is ‘autumnal.’ I knew that I wanted Cap & Gown, and Baby Smile looked interesting - though it turned out to be more of a buff than a pink. I also ended up getting B-Day Candle

Notoriously Morbid’s Yesferatu

This is a lighter base color than I thought it would be; and the dry application is more opaque and better-looking than the wet application. It does make a nice liner on lighter-to-medium skintones, but it will look ashy on richer skintones. The red shimmer means that trying to use this color as an outer-crease color could be something of a challenge.

This shadow behaves differently between wet and dry application. When it dries down, the wet application remains a cooler pink with the barest hints of gold shimmer. The dry-over-primer application shows a lighter, more neutral pink with a somewhat sparse gold shift. It reminds me a little bit of BE’s Princess and Demure shadows.

I like this color depth! It’s not a super-bright purple, but it’s not so deep that it may as well be black, either. The formula is thicker and somewhat paste-like, so you easily end up with spider-leg lashes rather than a smoothly-coated color. The BFF mascaras are not waterproof on their own, so if you want this one to last all day, it really does need a sealant or a waterproofing top coat. Despite the formula issues, I...
