I saw the unique colors of the Black Moon Cosmetics Moonlighters range and I was immediately tempted. Finding that they were on sale I jumped at the opportunity to snag a bunch! The four I purchased were Glow Worm (lime green), Catshark (lilac purple), Jellyfish (highly pigmented blue), and Squid (diamond white). The packaging on these highlighters are super sleek and shiny black with a good mirror on the inside. All of the swatches for the highlighters are very pigmented, although some apply more subtly or strongly than others on the skin. Squid, Catfish, and Glow Worm I found to be easy to build up depending on your preference, while Jellyfish was extremely easy to overdo on application and needed a little practice to use more subtly. Squid is the go-to for a natural look. Catshark I found appeared better in bright outdoor or even low light than natural indoor light. Glow Worm, which has a strongly yellow tint to it, was very subtle even with a lot of layering. Jellyfish, without care to make sure it was subtle, was highly reflective in any light. I am happy to say that even with the differences between them, all of the Moonlighters perform well and last for a long time. With all the color options, good longevity, and beautiful packaging, I think these are my favorite highlighters! My only complaint is that a single one costs $22. I recommend grabbing them when Black Moon holds a sale and grabbing them cheaper, but if the cost is no barrier I think there is a shade for everyone in this line!

Liquid to Matte Lipstick - Haunting

I bought this in the shade Haunting, thinking it would be a deep, warm mauve/nude, because that's what the BMC website and ULTA both depicted in the photos. Nope. This is a grayed-out brown. And a lot of reviews that I've seen from a variety of sources say the same thing. What's the point in selling something with a gross misrepresentation of the color?! I'm sure this kind of shade looks great on some people, but it's not what I was looking for. And it darkens as it dries, which isn't good for a shade like this. The packaging is lovely, and the elongated, flat applicator makes it easy to apply this in a precise manner. The formula is nice too - not too drying, though it doesn't apply over itself very well. It's $18 USD, which isn't bad for a semi-high end lipstick. Vegan / Cruelty-free

Being a fan of Black Moon Cosmetics, I was browsing their site during a sale and saw this liquid eyeshadow line on sale. Normally $19, I got this at a discount. I purchased the shade, Nebula, which is a blackened purple with silver sparkles. The emphasis is strongly on the blackened aspect of this shadow. If you like dark eyeshadow this is definitely for you, although I was personally expecting it to be more purple. I found the product reasonably easy to apply. It goes on smoothly, but I found blending out the edges was difficult and required more dark shadows to make it look right. The shadow works well, but it is a little pricey for a type of eyeshadow I do not expect to use often. It also works very nicely as a topper for eyeliner and lipstick. I would personally recommend the line for the cool looks, especially now that they have expanded it to include more colors, but I would probably not repurchase this particular color as I would prefer a more purple one. I would also only recommend it to people who are either experienced with liquid eyeshadow or unafraid to try a new type of shadow.
