Chanel Riva vs Revlon Blue Lagoon

Thursday, 19 May, 2011

I saw Blue Lagoon at my Walgreens and went, “Ohh…I can do a comparison to Riva!” and they have some shocking similarities. They’re both shockingly shitty with application. There I said it. I blasphemed the La Maison de Chanel. Revlon – eh. Like they care.

Despite the craptastic application, they’re both pretty colors.

Come and see…

Revlon – Perplex

Thursday, 7 April, 2011

I am Perplexed that I was not able to find this color sooner.

I got a call from a BFF going, “What is that color you were looking for from Revlon? Is it called Perplex?”

Me: “OMG…YES! WHERE ARE YOU?”

BFF: “I’m at Big Lots. They have three left and…”

Me: “GET THEM ALL. DO YOU HEAR ME? GET THEM ALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! ALL OF THEM! I LOVE THAT COLOR. WELL, I DON’T KNOW IF I WILL LOVE THAT COLOR, BUT I WANT THEM ALL ANYWAY!”

BFF: “Ok. Stop yelling in my ear. They’re a dollar each.”

Me: *faints*

I got the package 2 days later. Yay for NAIL MAIL!! Thank you, Karen! Thank you, thank you!!!

Chanel’s Black Satin vs Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Iconoclast

Tuesday, 22 March, 2011

I had to do a comparison. Can you blame me?

When I put on Iconoclast, I had flashbacks of Black Satin nightmares. You know what I’m talking about – people selling bottles of this on eBay for exorbitant prices. Little did you know that waiting a few years down the line would yield a version of it with better shimmer and a better formula. Sometimes it pays to wait.

Come on over and see what I’m blabbing about today…The sun came out and is still out, so I’m going to make this brief because I want to get some swatching in before the rain starts in again!

Comparison: Ginger & Liz’s Trance vs Color Club’s Revvvolution

Tuesday, 15 March, 2011

On Saturday I happened to catch a tweet from Jeanette over at The Swatchaholic and she was talking about a brand’s color that was holographic. I no longer feature that brand on my blog, but I happened to have 2 bottles of said color she was tweeting about.

I went home and compared the 2 and discovered that I did not have the HTF version of that color. After much picture taking from every angle in daylight, shade and flash I gave up. To cheer myself up, I decided to compare two holographic polishes from two lines: Ginger & Liz (whom I have so much love for) and Color Club.

Sinful Colors – Irish Green and Green Ocean

Tuesday, 1 March, 2011

I can’t believe it’s March. Or that St Patrick’s Day is around the corner. I’ve received the usual inquiries about what we’re going to do for St Patty’s Day – are we going to go out drinking or are we going to stay home? The usual thing we do on days like this: we stay home.

Mr. Carinae and I are firm believers in the Karen Walker School of Thinking: Drinking during the holidays. So amateur.

However, just because we don’t go drinking on that particular day, it doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy the festivities that go on. I’m very early on these, but I wanted a little green on my Tuesday before I jaunt off to yoga class.
