Pure Ice Bedtime

Hey guys! How was your weekend? I can’t complain about mine as I enjoyed good food with good company. I also received some really nice gifts and scored in Target’s after Holiday sale (just the Dollar Spot though…50% off Holiday items there). Today’s post is on Pure Ice Bedtime.

Pure Ice Bedtime

Bedtime is a not quite a magenta shade but definitely not a plain purple. I find small glassy like particles in this shade which contributes to its sparkliness. This shade has a sheer formula that resulted in some patchiness but it evened out with more coats. Shown is 4 coats with no top coat.

Zoya Harlow

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! Today I have the last shade from Zoya’s matte collection from last year. Here’s Zoya Harlow.

Zoya Harlow

Harlow is a beautiful plum-colored shimmer. It is described as “a rich, saturated rose plum packed with sparkling metallic shimmer in a velvety MATTEVELVET finish” and “a perfect choice for fall or winter that combines rich color with a lush matte finish”. Formula is thicker and more opaque than the rest in this collection. I had to work fast to avoid streaks or bumpiness that’s common with slower application of matte shades. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

This shade makes me think of the pretty color of wine.

Sally Hansen Style Maker

Hey guys! It’s a short week for many of us here due to Thanksgiving. I’m looking forward to just kicking back a little and staying warm. The weather has cooled considerably that the heater is finally on! Here’s another shade from Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel line: Style Maker.

Sally Hansen Style Maker

Style Maker is such a pretty vibrant shade that’s perfect year-round. It’s a pretty jewel tone green to me. Formula is sheerer than I thought though. Shown is 4 coats with one coat of their Miracle Gel top coat.

It’s not quite the festive green for the holiday season but I love this shade of green a lot. Keeper for sure!

Sinful Colors Rose Rebel

Hey guys! It’s getting colder day by day. I had this slight pressure built up on the bridge of my nose but it wasn’t bad enough for me to stay at home. Seasons changing usually triggers sinus pain and congestion for me. But, next week will be a short week and I’m looking forward to it. I miss my nieces and love to hang out with all my in-laws. Today’s post is on a beautiful shade that’s perfect year-round. Sinful Colors Rose Rebel.

Sinful Colors Rose Rebel

Described as “metallic magenta”, this one of the 27 shades from their A Class Act Collection for back to school. This shade has a very glossy finish for this stunning shimmer. Shown is 3 thinner coats with no top coat.

They’re usually priced at $1.99 but you can score some for as low as $0.99 each when there is a BOGO promo or some special pricing on these.

Zoya Dovima

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! I have another one of Zoya’s matte shades from last year’s collection. Here’s Zoya Dovima.

Zoya Dovima

Dovima is a charcoal black shimmer. It is described as “a smoky charcoal-black with strong silver shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish” and “this shine-free black is the must have shade for fall”. I used one more coat than expected as it was still slightly patchy. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.
