L’Oréal’s Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Glistening Garnet (557)

It’s good to see a berry-red eyeshadow in this collection! It was released in one of the later waves. I don’t know that I have any other eyeshadows that are exactly this shade…and I have a lot of reds. It applies very well - no gaps in coverage, no clumping, and a great color payoff.

This applies so much lighter than it appears in the pot! It doesn’t seem to be a white residue on top of the eyeshadow, like I’ve seen with some matte shadows. This appears to be intentional. The shadow blends well, and when applied damp it’s a little darker but still not as dark as it appears in the pot.

I really like these autumnal-gold or gold-tan colors! They give me near-yellow nails without the streakiness that yellow creme-formula polishes usually tend to have.

This lipstick has the standard hallmarks of the rest of the Loaded Bolds: saturated color, easy application, even coverage but can definitely benefit from a liner. This dark taupe won’t work too well for me as a lip color, unless I put it under a stronger fuchsia lip polish. Even then, I can see myself using this as a contour shade rather than a lip color.

This is an almost blackened green that shifts through the cool spectrum - from green to midnight blue to blackened violet. The shift on this isn’t nearly as visible as many other multichrome shadows. Zoya’s Olivera has a very pronounced, highly visible shift and it’s not even an extra cost because of special ingredients.

This eyeliner shade is a match for Plum and Get It mascara…which I don’t like quite as much as I like this eyeliner color. (I’m nothing if not consistent!) This was added to the colourpop lineup in the collection after the one that had Wine o Clock and Joyride. The application is fairly standard for Colourpop’s creme gel liners: it goes on smoothly, it’s smudgeable or otherwise blendable for a minute or two after application,...

The rose tones aren’t quite as visible in this lip color as the vendor description would indicate. The lip color is just barely orangey. I can wear it, but do need to be careful about what other shades I’ve got on to minimize the orange tones. The application is easy, and since all Plumpliners have the wide flat brush on the end, the coverage is complete.

Color Club’s Karat Cake

Color Club’s Karat Cake

Posted on Wednesday, at

When the 2019 Oil Slick collection came out, I wasn’t all that interested in many of the “new” colors. I didn’t know that they’d have much multichrome action, and I didn’t want to pay extra for non-colorshifting polishes. The first time I saw review-photos of Karat Cake, I thought…well, hey, that’s Firelight in nail polish form, let’s give it a try. The polish shows brushstrokes pretty visibly. I also got a bubbly bottle -...
