  • Clarins Fairy Tale Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches
    by Christine on July 26, 2021 at 7:00 pm

    Clarins Fairy Tale (01) 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.1 oz.) includes two matte shades and two shimmer shades, though one shimmer had micro-sparkle throughout and worked better with a dampened brush. The two mattes were a little powdery compared to other mattes in the formula that I've tried, but they were fairly pigmented and blendable. They lasted a decent length of time--in the grand scheme of things--but did not make it to the 12-hour mark as marketed. Fairy Tale #1 is a light-medium copper with warm, brownish undertones and flecks of gold and pink micro-sparkle. The eyeshadow had mostly Continue Reading…

  • Urban Decay Ravenswood & Weho Vice Hydrating Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches
    by Christine on July 26, 2021 at 4:00 pm

    Urban Decay Ravenswood Vice Hydrating Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy mauve with warm undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick was richly pigmented with smooth, even color coverage in one layer. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and needed to warm up against my lips for half a second to really glide on, but once it did, it was easy to apply and I've found this initial firmness tends to be paired with a formula that is more forgiving of lip texture and seems to fill in some lip lines. It wore nicely for five hours and Continue Reading…

  • Lethal Cosmetics Gamma Pressed Highlighter Review & Swatches
    by Christine on July 26, 2021 at 2:00 pm

    Lethal Cosmetics Gamma Magnetic Pressed Highlighter ($18.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with warmer undertones and a luminous finish that gave a glow but didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth texture that was moderately dense but not too firmly-pressed into the pan, which made it easy to pick up with both feathery and denser brushes. The powder applied evenly to bare skin and blended out beautifully. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

    by noreply@blogger.com (Cat Cactus) on January 1, 2020 at 4:30 am

    This year has been a plot twist that I never saw coming. Yes, this is happening: a post, on my blog, shambling out of a dusty corner of empties and snarled with torn webbing of sheetmask silk.Even though this year has been non-stop and the most transformative and momentous period of the decade for me, I couldn't let this year pass without an update +  some thoughts about the past and future of K-Beauty.The pacific northwest is so much more beautiful than any photo can convey.Many of you have sent me messages and emails asking what I've been up to, why I haven't been posting, and if I'm going to be posting again. Here it is, and this year has been wild.In this post:What I've been doing instead of blogging aka "The Year Life Yanked Me Out of One Timeline and Shoved Me Into a Totally Different One"What hooked me on K-Beauty & why my loins are no longer aflame about itWhat soured me on the K-Beauty scene & beauty bloggingWhere I think K-Beauty is going in the next decade if it lastsHave you ever had the experience of having the next, say, 5-10 years of your life plotted out, and you're minding your own business, living day to day, and then suddenly, something happens that snatches you up by the nose hairs and hurls you, metaphorical pants around ankles, into a completely new reality?(Seriously, drop me a comment if you have had this happen to you.

  • Giving Tuesday Destash: the Snails Send Self-Care
    by noreply@blogger.com (Cat Cactus) on November 27, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    I'm hopping out of hibernation early this year; I have a few posts upcoming but they're being temporarily shelved for something more important. It's Giving Tuesday and I want to talk about what I, my fellow Snails, and you can do with our neglected-but-new beauty products, unwanted gifts-with-purchase, and mountains of foil samples we've guiltily banished to the back of our skincare stash.You've probably been there: unexpected 1+1 gifts with purchase, loads of random foil samples, unwanted sheet masks, deluxe mini sizes of products we'll never use.I've got a lot of convoluted feelings about the term "self-care" and how it's been co-opted  from its original activist roots into a marketing slogan. The Snailcast episode The Evolution of Self-Care dives deep into the topic, so I won't get too wild on it here. This post is about gifting packages of self-care to women in need, and where and what you can send if you'd like to do so yourself.Doing something that's genuinely helpful for others, especially in the wake of the Black Friday consumerism hangover, feels like exactly what's needed right now.Read more »

  • 4 Minute Morning: My Quick 6-Step K-Beauty Routine
    by noreply@blogger.com (Cat Cactus) on May 21, 2018 at 1:30 pm

    How long does it take to do a multi-step Korean beauty product routine? A lot less time than I thought, as it turns out. Gone are the old days of lazy 20+ minute AM routines, where I could leisurely apply layers of products between answering emails and sipping my coffee.My AM routine now consists of potty dancing in front of my mirror as I slap on products while my puppy chirps and whines to be let out of her crate. It's easy to slap on a bunch of products as fast as possible, but it's trickier to have them absorb in time for your sunscreen to safely adhere to your face.It's fast, it's fervent, it's done on a full bladder: it's my 3 minute and 47 second K-Beauty morning routineIt's also as hot and humid AF right now, which means my sunscreen wants to slide into my eyes as soon as I step out the door, resulting in me staggering around my yard trying to wipe my burning, streaming eyes like a freshly maced frat boy. I need my products in place and locked down against the summer heat, and that's a lot harder to do in the time it takes for the puppy to lose patience and start chewing her bed.In this post:It's all in the timing; a simple change made a big differenceWhich 6 steps are necessitiesA full face with +2 minutes extraTrying to get all this stuff done in stages, in between her AM potty break and AM playtime, just wasn't working for me. Instead of popping outside in a hat, doing the thing, and zipping back indoors for my next step, anything less than a fully ready face resulted in me chasing her around the yard trying to dig rocks, sticks, and occasionally my shoe out of her mouth, without sun protection. Hat + chasing down a speedy tinydog = unplanned sun exposure.Necessity was the mother of inventing a workable AM routine so fast I decided to time it to see just how long it took for me to roll out the door, ready for puppy potty & playtime in the summer sun.Read more »

  • Take My Money: Swatches, Sulwhasoo Balancing Water First Impressions, & Beautytap Review
    by noreply@blogger.com (Cat Cactus) on April 9, 2018 at 12:00 pm

    You know those shops that you always have on your radar, yet somehow never purchase from? That was me with Beautytap (née W2Beauty); it's been around for years, quietly part of the Korean-based shop landscape, a site I'd often check for new releases but ultimately bail on my cart, usually due to the high price tags and lack of distinction from the many other options I had for buying K-Beauty.That changed when W2Beauty changed; all of a sudden they started doing smart things like bringing on top K-Beauty bloggers (like Coco Park of The Beauty Wolf and Sheryll of The Wanderlust Project) for their new Editorial section. Instead of the usual thinly veiled "advertorial" in-house blogs run by shops to shill their wares, they started publishing original content that was good, written by people who knew what they were talking about.W2Beauty was always legit, but once it turned into Beautytap it seriously upped its game, and I started plotting out my second order before I even received the first.Once this SWS water went on sale, it was tiiiiiiimeThey also hired people who knew K-Beauty; they brought on Fiddy Snails (of Fifty Shades of Snail and The Snailcast podcast) who unleashed terrible things upon the unsuspecting K-Beauty community, like daily flash sales of fancy products that gave me flares of grabby-handitis and made my wallet weep.All sorts of products that I'd regulated to the "if I ever won the lottery" wishlist are now regularly appearing in their daily deals, and I need Snesus because they're trying to kill me.This was some friendly fire, y'all.In this post:Am I affiliated with Beautytap?Shopping experience: pros, cons, & why I'll continue to shop thereSwatch & first impressions: Peripera Ink Airy Velvet #10 Dry Rose BrownSwatch & first impressions: Sulwhasoo Essential Balancing Water EXYou might wonder why I'd bother doing something as old-hat as a haul post/shop review, but 1. the world always needs more swatches, and 2. there's a lot more to say about a haul from Beautytap that I definitely want to cover. Plus, hanbang. Haaaannnbaaaangggg.Read more »

  • Love Me Low [pH] & Gently: Make P:rem Safe Me Cleanser Review
    by noreply@blogger.com (Cat Cactus) on February 19, 2018 at 2:00 pm

    You know what I should be doing daily? Washing my face with something other than puppy slobber and the occasional half-hearted swipe of BHA exfoliant on a cotton square. Somehow, though, that hasn't quite always worked out as I planned, much like my plans to raise a perfectly trained, polite dog that doesn't jump on people's faces to greet them and isn't plotting diabolical schemes to procure bits of steak on demand.That had quite a bit to do with why I'm reviewing the Make P:rem Safe Me Relief Moisture Cleansing Foam, but I'll get to that shortly.Sure it says it's pH 5.5, but is it really? We've been mislead and our wallets waylaid before.As it turns out, puppy slobber can be pretty irritating, or perhaps it's just the combination of noncon puppy tongue baths + the winter elements when it's 11pm and -18C** and you're outside huddled in your jacket chanting "go potty, go potty" like some sort of scatologically-obsessed cult member. Wind chapping is no joke, I'd almost forgotten what real winter weather is like after a decade outside Canada.**That's just below zero Fahrenheit for my non-metric peeps out there.It turns out that skin savaged by winter like the twitterstorm that obliterated that article about the "skincare con", isn't thrilled about the application of products. Especially cleansers (even low pH ones) gamely trying to strip the last remnants of lubrication out of your moisture barrier.While digging through my stash (much like my dog in our doomed garden, except with less mud and no eating of unknown objects) I realized I had a full tube of the Make P:rem Safe Me Relieving Moisture foaming cleanser waiting to be used. I had bought the full size after going through several sample sachets, and remembered liking its gentle, mild foam. It's also low pH (as proclaimed proudly on the packaging) and into my bathroom it went, standing like a lone, forlorn soldier against the tide of unholy bacteria no doubt marching across my face.In this post:Product detailsIngredientsDoes it foam, though?Cleansing demoOverall thoughtsI suppose not everyone is as concerned with the qualifications and performance of their cleansers as I am, but everyone's got their kinks. Mine is for low pH cleansers that snuggle my skin's horny layer with soft suds and sultry scents, and I'm not ashamed. Let's roll!Read more »
