Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Rose Royal Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix MatteDanessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep red with moderate, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer where a little went a very long way, so it was always better to use less and build up coverage–which was very doable–rather than try the reverse. I’d recommend using fluffy, synthetic or duo-fiber brushes, which...

It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable color payoff that adhered evenly to my skin and blended out well. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours before ...

MAC Barococoa Strobe Face Glaze Review & Swatches

Barococoa MAC Barocococa Strobe Face Glaze ($28.00 for 0.5 oz.) has a translucent base with fine, copper and bronze pearl throughout a high-shine, glossy base. The formula is supposed to give the “dewiest, flushed glow” what is “translucent” and “oil-slicked” in look. It’s best thought of as a tinted, glossy balm for the face with a hint of pearl and a lot of shine/glossiness–just as marketed. As you might expect, it does attract fly...

It has a smooth consistency that was creamy without being too thick or too thin, so it wasn’t runny but it wasn’t stiff to work with.

There was a grayish cast when worn more heavily, though it seemed rosier when applied semi-sheer to medium. The texture was silky-smooth, finely-milled but not overly powdery, and picked up well with a brush for an even, smooth application of powder. It had medium, buildable pigm...

Dior Rayonnante (330) Rouge Blush Review & Swatches

Rayonnante (330) Dior Rayonnante (330) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light coral with moderate, warm undertones and warmer, lighter peachy-gold pearl woven throughout. The shimmer was fine, which resulted in a satiny sheen once the blush was applied and buffed out on my skin–the finish made it a little different than the many peachy-coral blushes on the market. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied well to b...
