Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Waterfall

Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Waterfall

Posted on Sunday, at

I really like this color! I don’t use it quite as often as I’d like to (I should probably buy a spare and keep it in my go-bag; maybe then I’d use it more frequently.) It applies well, though the pencil is a little soft so it will be difficult to use for crisp lines or tightlining unless you apply and then use a brush for the details. You will have about 1 minute to manipulate it before...

Maybelline’s Total Temptation Waterproof Mascara

Maybelline’s Total Temptation Waterproof Mascara

Posted on Thursday, at

I love this mascara! The formula itself is good, and the brush helps coat and separate my lashes. The tube has a matte finish, though, that picks up every powder or liquid or cream…especially when the mascara wand may brush the outside of the tube when you're putting it back in. And once something's on the outside of the tube, it's the devil's own time trying to get it off again. It's not a serious design flaw, but it...

CND’s Vinylux Taffy (274)

CND’s Vinylux Taffy (274)

Posted on Wednesday, at

This entire collection was all amped-up, intensified pastels. Taffy is a bright aqua that's a lovely shade...but the formula is a bit on the thin side. It doesn't self-level as well as most other CND Vinylux creme-finish polishes. While two coats gave me a fairly good manicure with about 70% even application, I may have been able to get completely even coverage with three coats.

Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Strobe Balm palette

Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Strobe Balm palette

Posted on Tuesday, at

I was hoping that this might be a palette of somewhat decent creme-ish highlighters. I was wrong. The’re really not that great. They’re waxy, they don’t have much lighlight in them, and if you are not pretty pale - any deeper than the equivalent of Fenty’s Longwear Foundation in 170 - they’ll barely show up on you. If you’re looking for extremely subtle highlighters…well, honestly, you can pay less money for something more pigmented,...

My Pretty Zombie’s Leopards Etc.

My Pretty Zombie’s Leopards Etc.

Really solid pigmentation! If you're looking for a nearly-hot-pink eyeshadow or blush, this is a gorgeous shade with a very soft, scattered gold shimmer.

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Cherry Skies

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipliner in Cherry Skies

Posted on Friday, at

Not all of these lipliners made it to the Suede Matte Lipstick line. This was one of many colors that didn’t make the cut. (Hey Nyx! Do you have any plans to expand that collection? Because I’d love a color like this one, or Copenhagen, or Whipped Caviar.) Spicy is a bit brighter, and I don’t like how it looks on me nearly as much as I like Cherry Skies.

Zoya’s Kendra

Zoya’s Kendra

Posted on Wednesday, at

This is a great polish color for those days when you want “oxblood, but cooler.” It’s got the standard Zoya ease of application, and it’s nicely durable.

Nails Inc’s Glamingo

Nails Inc’s Glamingo

Posted on Tuesday, at

am not a huge fan of neon nail polish, because they can require so many coats (or an under-layer of white polish) to really show the best color. This...is NOT one of those neon polishes! It's fully opaque and fully intense neon after two coats.
