Buy & Blog: Kleancolor

Hello, my Pretties!

About three weeks ago, I went shopping downtown with my mom and my sister.  We walked into this "99 cent" type of store just so the kiddos could look around and maybe pick out a toy or something.  The kids didn't get any goodies but I sure did!

I don't remember the name of the store but I do intend on going back.  When I show you what I got, you will see why.

Kleancolor Nail Lacquers
Price: 2 for $0.99

I am a fan of Kleancolor nail polishes.  They have a huge selection.  The price is $3.49 on the Kleancolor website but I usually buy them at the local flea markets around here for $1.00 each.  Indoor flea markets price them at $1.75 but 2 for $0.99 is unheard of!

16 Neon Purple

I have done a blog post featuring this shade which I just love and you can see that post HERE.

49 Mocha

This was also another color that I really liked too.  I also have used this polish in a blog post already and you can see that post HERE.

90 Madly Matte

While taking the photos for this blog post, I quickly swatched this matte finisher on one nail over hot pink nail polish.  I didn't see too much of a difference so I will have to test it out again before I say YAY or NAY to this one.

181 Mix Signal

My six year old daughter picked this one out.  No surprise.  It's pink.  It's sparkles.  She's my very own little Elle Woods.  I did use this polish on her but not on myself yet.  Stay tuned for a Pink Wednesday post featuring this blingy pink!

Kleancolor Hawaiian Rainbow Splendor
02 Cool & Sexy
Price: $0.99

"A touch of paradise is captured in dazzlingly beautiful 12-shade eyeshadow.  You will be all dolled up in seconds with this professional palette."


Swatches.
Top 6 shadows.

Don't you just love these shadows!  So shimmery.  So pigmented!  Wow!

Swatches.
Bottom 6 shadows.

The darker shades are even more pigmented, I think.

Kleancolor Multi-Color Blush
02 Brazilian Rose
Price: $0.99

"Accentuate your cheekbone with Kleancolor's Multi-Color Blush and finish with a sensual glow.  The blend of 4 blush colors naturally adjusts itself to fit you and boosts your appearance with a flushed look."


Finger tip swatches.

I melted when I saw this.  These colors are so beautiful!

Swipe swatches.

Brush included.

I did try the brush to appy the blush and the brush is pure trash.  No better way to describe it.  It's tough and rough to the touch.  It scratches your face and it sheds like crazy.  When I finally managed to apply the blush, I had long hairs all over my face.  Not a good look.  But that's OK, the blush alone is really good.

Kleancolor Multi-Color Blush
01 Blushing Geisha

Finger tip swatches.

The darkest shade in this blush is my favorite.  It would make such a pretty shadow.  Can I use it as an eyeshadow?

Swipe swatches.

Love Me 365 Gel Eyeliner
116 Mocha Brown and 114 Violet Purple
Price: 2 for $0.99

Now, these aren't Kleancolor but I don't have any gel eyeliners and I just wanted to try them out.  I have recently discovered cream liners, which I love, and I just wanted to see how gel liners compare.

Swatches.

I was impressed with the swatches.  Especially the brown one is so dark!  The only thing was that they felt so greasy.  They remained wet for a long time.  Even after applying it to my eyes after my eyeshadow, the liner never fully dried.  I touched my eye after about 30 minutes and the liner was still wet and transferred easily onto my finger tip.  Not good.  These I will not be repurchasing and I don't know if I will even be able to use them.  Maybe next time I will set them with eyeshadow and see if that helps.  I don't know if that is normal for a "gel" liner but I don't think so.

Brush included.

Once again, this brush was not good.  It was very hard and not good at all.  I liked how it's stored at the bottom of the jar but too bad it was trash.

Kleancolor Loveville Matte Shimmer Duo
02 Alluring Touch
Price: $0.99

I got this palette solely for the fluorescent yellow shadow.  It called out to me, I swear.

Swatches.
Top 5 matte shadows.

Swatches.
Bottom 5 shimmer shadows.

I love this palette.  As usual, the shimmer shadows were much more pigmented and softer and easier to apply but the matte ones weren't really all that bad either.

Overall, I think I did well with this little haul.  I love everything for the exception of the gel liners.  Those were a bust but I only lost a buck so I'm fine with that.

I have done an FOTD featuring the Loveville Matter Shimmer Duo palette so stay tuned for that one coming up real soon!

Luv & Luk,

    1. It wasn't horrible the first time I tried it, I just hope it is more "matte" next time. I like matte polishes :)

    1. Thank you, BBB. I really like nail polish but I just wish that I could do some nail art with them. I don't know how to do nail art but I'd love to learn :)

  3. Hey girl! Wow I am loving all of this color - you really know how to work the color, girl! :) I have never heard of this brand before, but everything looks great. I can't wait to see you do some looks with them!
    That is so strange about the gel liners, I have tried out a few brands and they dry and stay put, so that is so weird that these stay wet! You should see if you like WetnWild gel eyeliner. I have the black on and I really like it. Sometimes people say they dry out easily but Letitia Laura did a YT video on how she rehydrates hers using eye drops, so I thought that was a good idea!
    Anyway, sorry to blabber on & on! :) Great post & pics, girl!
    <3 it! ~ Angie

    1. Hey, Angie! I have always been a fan of Kleancolor nail polishes but I am just starting to discover their makeup line. So far so good. The gel liners were bad but those weren't even the Kleancolor brand. I love WnW so I will have to look for their gel liners. I wonder how they differ from cream liners. I love my cream liners. I wear contacts so I always have eye drops on hand should my liners dry out LOL. Thanks for stopping by and for the sweet comments :)
