Rescue Beauty Lounge Become One, Smile, Thank You Nail Lacquers

Rescue Beauty Lounge Become One Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described an “opaque green” inspired by “young, verdant leaves in spring.” It’s a medium green cream with warm, yellow undertones. This was really rich in pigment and was nearly opaque in one coat, though I still found two to work best for full opacity. The consistency is slightly thick but not to the point where it hurts application, just makes the drying time a bit longer. It flowed well across the nail without pooling along the edges, bubbling, or streaking. I typically get a full week of wear with very minor tip wear with Rescue Beauty Lounge’s formula. Cult Nails Feelin’ Froggy is cooler-toned, more shimmery. China Glaze Starboard is slightly darker and cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Guerlain Noir Volcanique (01) Khol Me Kajal Eyeliner

Guerlain Noir Volcanique (01) Khol Me Kajal Eyeliner ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a mostly matte, medium-dark black with neutral undertones.  It’s slightly darker than the average black eyeshadow but not as intense as the blackest black eyeliners–see comparison swatches. It doesn’t seem creamy initially, but the pencil tip glides across skin evenly and smoothly without dragging or skipping. One single pass delivered quite a bit of product, and of course, going back and forth yielded fully opaque color. It applied really well to the waterline, as well as the lash line. When worn on the water line, it lasts between six and eight hours for me (six being if my eyes are somewhat watery). On the lower lash line, it lasted eight to ten hours well and had some slight smudging after ten hours of wear.

theBalm Put a Lid On it Eyeshadow Primer

theBalm Put a Lid On it Eyeshadow Primer ($18.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a translucent eyeshadow primer that has a medium-thick, spreadable consistency that applies evenly and smoothly. It’s supposed to help amplify your favorite eyeshadows as well as improve their staying power. It comes in a squeeze-tube with a needle nose applicator, so you can easily get just what you need out. The consistency was a bit thicker than I anticipated (thicker than Too Faced Shadow Insurance or Urban Decay Primer Potion), but it smooths out well so that it feels weightless once blended and spread over the lid. It feels a bit like a silicone-based face primer but not as heavy on the silicones. It takes a few seconds to dry down and “set,” and once set, it feels like almost nothing on the lid. One thing I loved was that this product didn’t separate as some tube-based primers can, so I didn’t have to worry about what I’d get upon first squeeze.
