Clionadh and Cirque Colors: Swatches & notes: SpoilerClionadh - this is my first time trying their shadows. I knew they’d be soft textured but good grief, these might be the softest shadows I own. Not velvety buttery smooth, just very very soft. That’s not a bad thing, at least for now. Depends on how they perform on my lids. The soft texture should be good for color washing my lids, and hopefully these shades are buildable for more impact and bolder pigmentation. As expected, the color shifts are beautiful. Photos taken in my warm bathroom lighting, with slight digital temperature adjustment to get closer-to-reality (not ridiculously over-warm) colors.Cirque Colors - they recently re-released some magnetic polishes, including 2 I’d wanted but never ordered. Dream Within a Dream is more multidimensional than my swatch photo depicts, with more colors that appear in person. I should’ve taken photos of that one at various angles to really show it off. Morningtide is a plain jelly that’ll be fun to work with in various ways. In my photos, the swatches below the nail show how each magnetic polish looks as-is (no magnet used). For their nail swatches, I used a ring magnet. L: indoor light. R: flash photo that pulled a bit magenta, but I didn't feel like fussing with temp and tint during photo editing.I don’t often keep product boxes, but I can’t bring myself to recycle Firecracker’s box.

The theme of this mystery bundle is Disney villains. I expected to see polishes named after cosmetic-brand popular villains like Ursula, Maleficent, Evil Queen, Scar, and a few others. But shades for Yzma, Prince John, and Claude Frollo were a welcome surprise. At least, I assume that's who some shades were named for. 😄 Hellfire is a thermal polish.No-Belle and OWTH are magnetic polishes, though the latter's *very* subtle about it.

@Animeteen Quick BIC tip: remember to @ the person you reply to so they'll get a notification. Otherwise they might never see your reply. 🙂 Sounds like you might have indented/pitted acne scars. In that case, I recommend seeing a doctor (either your primary care doctor or a board certified dermatologist), if you can, for treatment options. Ask your parent/guardian about that. Pitted scars can be stubborn. Sometimes they improve on their own, but not quickly. A doctor can diagnose your skin and recommend personalized options with realistic timeframes. One option your doc might recommend is a retinoid to boost collagen production and reduce the indentations/pits. You could try that on your own: check your local drugstore or (if you're in the US) Target for Differin Gel or La Roche-Posay Effaclar Adapalene Gel, both of which are 0.1% adapalene. That's a retinoid frequently recommended for acne control. But adapalene's not an overnight miracle. You'll need to start using it slowly: just once or twice a week for a few weeks, then increase to 2-3 times a week, and so on until you're at a comfy-for-you frequency. If possible, I still think you should see a doctor before trying adapalene on your own. Even if you didn't have pitted scars—if they were instead flat dark spots—it'd still take 4-8 weeks to see results from any over-the-counter product that treats post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH, like dark marks left by acne). These things take time. There are in-office/clinic procedures a doctor can try for quicker results, like laser therapy. It's pricey, but it's another option to discuss with a doctor.

No worries, @Titian06 ! The "don't use retinol and vitamin C together" myth has floated around for a long time and refuses to die. Heck, there are medical doctors who still think it's true. I don't remember offhand how it started... might've been based on a faulty clinical study. Noting to self to dig around later and refresh my memory. 🙂 While I'm thinking of vitamin A myths: another common one is that retinol thins skin, therefore making skin more sensitive to sunlight. But nope, vitamin A and its derivatives boost collagen production, which should result in stronger and thicker (not thinner) skin. Fun fact: retinol itself is sensitive to sunlight (unless formulated in a way to decrease that issue). So is vitamin C—in its pure ascorbic acid form—to an infamous degree. The reason some doctors tell folks to use retinol at night is to prevent the ingredient from breaking down in sunlight after it's applied to skin. But if you don't expose your skin to sunlight soon after applying retinol, and you do apply sunscreen over it, then it should be fine. If your retinol/vitamin A or ascorbic acid product is in a clear glass or plastic container, don't store it where it'll be exposed to sunlight.
