Sydney Grace Time Stops Blush Review & Swatches

Time Stops Sydney Grace Time Stops Pressed Blush ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with moderate warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer to the point where I’d advise using a lighter hand to pick up product initially and building up as necessary (to avoid over-applying–it is always easier to add more than to take it away!). The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan but ble...

Fenty Beauty Cognac Candy Body Lava Review & Swatches

Cognac Candy Fenty Beauty Cognac Candy Body Lava Body Luminizer ($60.00 for 3.0 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, orange-copper tinted base with fine gold and copper pearl throughout. It had a finer shimmer that produced a glowing sheen when applied to bare skin–lightly dewy and shiny but pearlescent. It produced the level of coverage anticipated based on the formula’s claims, and whether the tint is really giving a bronzed effect will ...

Fenty Beauty Cognac Candy Diamond Bomb Veil Review & Swatches

Cognac Candy Fenty Beauty Cognac Candy Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, coppery-orange base with flecks of gold and copper sparkle throughout. It had sheer coverage, which could be built up to semi-sheer coverage at most, with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that felt like a cream-powder hybrid by touch in the pan but quickly turned to powder-like when it came into contact with my skin. The p...

Milani Pink-aroo Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter Review & Swatches

Pink-aroo Milani Pink-aroo Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter ($10.99 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with flecks of pink-to-violet shifting shimmer and sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer–it was far more pigmented than other shades in the line and more so than expected based on the formula’s claims–that could be applied with a lighter hand to get sheerer, more buildable coverage. The texture was ...

Milani Peach-ella Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter Review & Swatches

Peach-ella Milani Peach-ella Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter ($10.99 for 0.24 oz.) has more of a translucent base that’s packed full of iridescent pink and warmer pink shimmer and sparkle that gave it a shiny, glittering finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage, which seemed in line with the formula’s claims. The texture was surprisingly smooth for as glittery as the finish was, though I could definitely tell it had som...

Milani Lolla-Blue-Za Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter Review & Swatches

Lollapa-Blue-Za Milani Lolla-Blue-Za Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter ($10.99 for 0.24 oz.) has a translucent base with iridescent shimmer and sparkle that twinkled between lighter and more mid-tone blue that ran slightly warmer-toned in its base and cooler-toned when reflecting light. It had sheer to semi-sheer, buildable coverage (to semi-opaque), which was in line with how it was marketed. The texture was soft, blendable,...

Jouer Darling Blush Bouquet Review & Swatches

Darling Jouer Darling Blush Bouquet ($30.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a new duo that features a warmer, more orange-toned peach and a lighter, more pink-toned peach, both with subtle, gold shimmer throughout, which buffed to a more satin-like finish. They were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, so for the right skin tone, it could be a winning pairing. Darling ...

Persona Georgia Super Blush Review & Swatches

Georgia Persona Georgia Super Blush ($22.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a brighter pop of medium coral-orange with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, so I’d say it was more pigmented than it was naturally buildable, but the texture was yielding and workable for use with a lighter hand (or less-dense brush) to achieve more buildable coverage with the right technique. The consistency was...

Jouer Passion Blush Bouquet Review & Swatches

Passion Jouer Passion Blush Bouquet ($30.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a new blush duo that features a matte, dusty coral and a shimmering tangerine. Both shades had good pigmentation, were blendable, and lasted between eight and nine hours on me. I liked that the texture was more firmly-pressed in the pan, so they weren’t powdery and easier to work with across preferences (whether sheer, buildable, or full opacity was desired). ...

UOMA Beauty Notting Hill Black Magic Bronzing Highlighter Review & Swatches

Notting Hill UOMA Beauty Notting Hill Black Magic Face & Body Bronzing Highlighter ($35.00 for 0.65 oz.) is a light, golden copper with strong, warm undertones paired with an intense, metallic finish. It was richly pigmented where a little went a long way, so the denser, slightly firmer texture was very much welcome. It was easy to use a lighter hand to pick up less product for a more buildable application if desired, but on the fl...

Barbados UOMA Beauty Barbados Black Magic Face & Body Bronzing Highlighter ($35.00 for 0.65 oz.) is a rich, deeper copper with strong, warm brown undertones and lighter, brighter gold shimmer throughout. It had a more metallic sheen that could be built up from a finer, more sheen-like finish to an intense, true metallic finish. The texture was lightly creamy to the touch, dense and a thicker formula, so there was no powderiness or ...

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Hollywood Beauty Light Wand Review & Swatches

Pillow Talk Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($38.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a light, pink-peach with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had fine pearl throughout, and while it dried down, it still read a bit dewy on me as it had a stronger sheen. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque, and it was best to apply one layer, let that dry, and then apply the second layer. The cons...

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk (Medium) Hollywood Beauty Light Wand Review & Swatches

Pillow Talk (Medium) Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk (Medium) Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($38.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a medium copper with moderate, warm undertones and a fine, pearlescent sheen that still had a bit of shine and dewiness to it (despite drying down). The texture was lightweight, fluid, and like a very thin gel as it spread easily on my skin, including over foundation (it didn’t lift up my base). It had semi-sheer covera...

ColourPop x Mulan Matchmaker Pressed Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Matchmaker Colour Pop Matchmaker Pressed Powder Blush ($7.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy brown with a semi-matte finish. There were a few stray sparkles visible in the pan, but they seemed to vanish once the powder was applied and blended out on my skin; instead, it had more of a semi-matte to satin finish where there was a bit of glow but not visible shimmer. The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan but did not ...

When applied and blended out, it had more of a satin finish–subtle sheen and a few stray sparkles but not overtly shimmery. The texture was soft, a little thinner but not quite as powdery as some of the brand’s blushes have been, so it was e...

Benefit Georgia Blush Review & Swatches (2020)

Georgia (2020) Benefit Georgia (2020) Box o’ Powder ($29.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, orange-peach with a satin finish. It had finer, golden pearl throughout that buffed out to a more satin-like glow on my skin–not quite shimmery but a step above matte. It had a smoother, almost velvety texture to the touch, but it was very prone to developing hard pan–it had hardened in places after two uses. It had good color coverage in a sing...

ColourPop Catch My Vibe Blush Review & Swatches

Catch My Vibe Colour Pop Catch My Vibe Pressed Powder Blush ($7.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a slightly brighter, medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer to the point where a little went a long way due to the more powdery texture. The powderiness resulted in a fair amount of product that kicked up in the pan as well as on the brush, so I’d recommend tapping off excess f...

The formula never fully dried down, so it has a true dewy finish that looked slightly wet while worn, but thankfully, it didn’t seem prone to sliding around or migrating easily as it still lasted for a solid eight hours before signs of wear were present...

The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, so I’d recommend using a lighter h...

It was intensely pigmented to the point where a little went a long way, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand and/or a less-dense brush and building up coverage as desired (always easier to build up than it is to sheer out!). The texture was smooth, almost cream-like, so it wasn’t too ...

Dallas (2020) Benefit Dallas (2020) Powder Blush (Mini) ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was a faint hint of shimmer that gave it a more natural matte finish once applied and blended out, but it didn’t read shimmery on my skin. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that sheered out a bit when applied to bare skin. It wore well ...

The texture felt smooth to the touch, but it was a bit more firmly-pressed into the pan to the point where it seemed stiff so it needed a moderate-to-heavy hand along with a moderately dense brush to pick up product e...

Beloved Essence Beloved The Blush ($2.99 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep pink with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish.

This type of formula–felt like a powder-gel hybrid–tends ...
