Huda Beauty Luna N.Y.M.P.H. Glaze Skin Glowing Perfector Review & Swatches

Luna Huda Beauty Luna N.Y.M.P.H. Glaze Skin Glowing Perfector ($35.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a light-medium gold with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous, lightly dewy sheen. It had medium, buildable color coverage that was more inclined to sheer out as the creamy consistency spread out across my skin. The texture was creamy, smooth, and moderately emollient, but on the lighter, slightly thinner side with some tackiness. It applied bet...

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...

ColourPop Skater Boyz Blush Stix Review & Swatches

Skater Boyz ColourPop Skater Boyz Blush Stix ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a medium pink with soft, warm undertones and a luminous finish. The consistency was smooth, emollient, and almost like a gel-cream hybrid as the product glided beautifully over bare skin as well as over foundation. 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 ...

Fenty Beauty Triple Dip Diamond Bomb Diamond Veil Palette Review & Swatches

Triple Dip Fenty Beauty Triple Dip Diamond Bomb Diamond Veil Palette ($42.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes three, sparkling highlighters with two new shades and one previously-released shade (Fenty Glow). The key takeaways one needs to know about this formula is that it is high-sparkle with a sheerer base and a consistency that can be fussy (ha, ha) to work with. I find fingertips to work the best for getting product from the compact to my s...

It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation, as marketed, that applied well to bare skin and layered well over foundation as it wasn’t prone to lifting up my base. The texture was smooth, creamy, and emollient with good glide, which helped it apply well with fingertips as well as brushes. ...

Winona Forever ColourPop Winona Forever Blush Stix ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous finish. The texture was lightweight, emollient, and gel-like, as it glided comfortably across my skin and wasn’t prone to lifting up base products.

MAC Rose Gold Glow Strobe Face Glaze Review & Swatches

Rose Gold Glow MAC Rose Gold Glow Strobe Face Glaze ($28.00 for 0.5 oz.) appears as a darker, reddish-coral base with cooler, iridescent pink pearl throughout, but it was translucent and very sheer, as marketed, so the end result resulted in a barely-there, warmer pink tint on my skin tone. It had a slightly thicker, somewhat tacky consistency that had a high-gloss finish that never dried down, which achieved a certain look but was a ...

Rich Huda Beauty Rich Mini Glow Obsessions Face PaletteHuda Beauty Rich Mini Glow Obsessions Face Palette ($29.00 for 0.22 oz.) includes four shimmery shades of different takes on copper–they were more similar than they needed to be! The texture of the formula was where the palette fell short; it was firmer, denser, and thicker overall, which made it harder to pick up product evenly with a brush. In order to do so, I typically had to...

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 was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, so adjusting and learning to use the smallest amount possible was the b...

Anastasia Iced Out Powder Highlighter Review & Swatches

Iced Out Anastasia Iced Out HighlighterAnastasia Iced Out Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a pale, white gold that flashed light-medium, more yellowy-gold with a metallic sheen. The lighter base didn’t seem to translate when applied to my skin, so it appeared a little warmer than I had anticipated. The texture was moderately-dense, firmer but not stiff to work with, and felt consistent with the gel-powder hybrid formula it was. Yo...

Golden Tan Anastasia Golden Tan Cream BronzerAnastasia Golden Tan Cream Bronzer ($35.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with moderate, warm undertones that leaned slightly yellow-orange but had a touch of red that tempered it. The finish was more of a “natural matte,” which let the natural skin come through but didn’t add or take away shine. It had medium pigmentation when applied with a brush and more semi-opaque coverag...

Ombre (608) Chanel Ombre (608) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a soft, light-medium brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. 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...
