Lunasol Geminate Eyes 04 Sapphire (SP)


Lunasol Geminate Eyes 04 Sapphire (SP)

(I personally think it is highly debatable if cosmetic industry is indeed the biggest evil of child labor related to mica mining. Not to discourage many conscious consumers out there, but let me just say that cosmetic industry takes only a fraction of this whole mica business (not to mention there have been many successful endeavors to find substitutes) and women are almost always targeted whenever consumerism is in question.)

On a lighter (and prettier) note, I think Lunasol does shimmer and glitters right (plus I suspect they use synthetic ones although I don't have ingredient lists to confirm that). Lunasol Geminate Eyes 04 is another fine example, and I must apologize in advance this particular color is no longer available.

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Kari


NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Kari

I bought a few from NARS Spring 2016 collection in the summer and started using them right away without photographing first. (I know. It sounds wrong on multiple levels.) 

Being a cool-toned pinkish mauve, Kari seemed an easy choice, and I expected it to fill the void where MAC Soba couldn't for me. Kari performs exactly how it is supposed to do and is reached for quite often. I just wish I like the formulation a bit better.

NOTD - Revlon Nail Enamel Perplex (aka Naughty)

NOTD - Revlon Nail Enamel Perplex

The other day I was browsing the Revlon nail polish section downstairs. Revlon has more than a few nail formulations available, but the classic Nail Enamel is still my favorite. It is in fact the only drugstore nail polish I buy and there are some shades I would forever repurchase (Revlon Red, for instance). I would have bought a backup of Perplex (aka Naughty) because I love this transitional vampy shade with dusty purple undertones, but I could not find it. Revlon must have done it again. (sighs)
