MAC E for Effortless & Adore Me Love Me Liquid Lipcolours Reviews & Swatches

E for Effortless MAC E for Effortless Love Me Liquid Lipcolour ($24.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. There seemed to be the finest amount of pearl throughout, but it didn’t give it a shimmery finish, just made it a little glowing. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer paired with a creamy, more velvety texture that was lightweight and fluid but not too slippery. The product appli...

Sweet Roll ColourPop Sweet Roll 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) includes one cream highlighter, one shimmery powder blush, and two matte blushes: rich copper, gold-shimmered rusty red, matte plum, and matte reddish-brown. They were fairly as-marketed with respect to pigmentation; the blushes were more buildable and hard to over-apply, though they had enough payoff to show up on skin. I found that the texture of the blushes...

ILIA Cheek to Cheek Multi-Stick Review & Swatches

Cheek to Cheek ILIA Cheek to Cheek Multi-Stick ($34.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium, peachy orange with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to medium if desired, which was in line with the brand’s description of the formula. The consistency felt smooth, more like a solid balm in the tube, which became moderately emollient as soon as I picked up product with my fingertip. Brushes ...
