JD Glow Opal, Bestie, Starluster, 365, Unxpected Galaxy Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Opal JD Glow Opal Galaxy Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a light pink with warmer undertones and a cooler, bluish-green shift paired with a metallic finish. It had an incredibly smooth, almost cream-powder feel to it, so there was an emollient slip to it without it actually being a cream eyeshadow. It had rich color coverage that applied beautifully to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color. This shade wore well for eigh...

JD Glow Beyunce Pressed Powder Illuminator Review & Swatches

Beyunce JD Glow Beyunce Pressed Powder Illuminator ($16.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a peachy beige base that shifted from very warm, peach-gold to lighter, warm pink with an intense, sparkling sheen. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease.

Both shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing; they were easy to work with, and while the formula has more powderiness to it than seems ideal, they actually looked fantastic on my skin as they were a...

Kaylie Sydney Grace Kaylie Lip Gloss ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a dusty, medium coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which spread evenly across my lips but settled and pulled away a bit around my deeper lip lines. The consistency was light-medium in thickness with moderate tackiness, though it was lightweight and stayed in place well. It wore nicely for five hours an...
