I’m a bit under the weather at the moment (I think it’s the flu…), so if I look a bit ragged/tired, that’s why ;) This didn’t quite come out how I wanted it, and I really wanted to wipe it all off afterwards, lol. Don’t you hate when that happens? Hopefully tomorrow will go better! (It’s been a rough few days here over at Temptalia HQ – nothing has gone as planned!)

By the by, Deep Dark is way too orange for me. I ended up using it more as a blusher (and had to buff it a bit), so I’ll be exchanging that next week when I go pick up my Colour Forms products (18th). I do like it as a light blush, so we’ll see – I’ll keep experimenting this week before I return it.

It’s Friday, ladies! Rejoice, we’re almost to the weekend. What do you have planned for tonight/this weekend?

I used Blue pigment (LE) on lid, Sea & Sky mineralize eyeshadow (marbled side) (LE) on inner lid, Sea & Sky mineralize shadow (colored side) (LE) on lid, Contrast eyeshadow on outer crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, Nylon eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Sea & Sky mineralize shadow (colored side) (LE) on lower lash line, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow layered on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Deep Dark mineralize skinfinish duo on cheeks. I wore Sandy B lipstick and Illicit lipglass (LE).

Blue = Freshwather; Sea & Sky = Tilt; Sea & Sky = Freshwater; Illicit = C-Thru

OVERALL, Electroflash will tempt you, even if you aren’t a fan of the duos! The mineralize eyeshadow duos definitely overshadow the lipsticks/lipglasses. You almost forget they’re even there, to be honest. I’m a lip product junkie, but I didn’t even pick up a single lip product this time around (but I am trying to budget, so that’s part of the reason). I liked Fast Thrill lipstick, because I felt it would make a nice summer lip, but I think I’ll wait on buying it for now. The mineralize eyeshadows feel incredibly smooth and rich when swatched. They go on intensely, and they feel like liquid velvet. I ended up with the two that drew me in (Fresh Green Mix and Sea & Sky), because I couldn’t resist the texture. I feel like they improve with each launch of duos.  I will have to try them in a look before I pick up any more, though.

OVERALL, Sonic Chic offers nine wearable colors of mineralize blush. These feel smooth and velvety when applied, and the colors are buildable.  Each color has good pigmentation/color pay off, but depending on your application technique, they can be sheered out or built up in their intensity. I think with nine different colors, everyone is bound to find one or two that catches their eye. I have a feeling Dainty and Nuance may be big sellers, because they are quite universal.
