Makeup by Mario Opal Soft Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Opal Makeup by Mario Opal Soft Glow HighlighterMakeup by Mario Opal Soft Glow Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a pale white with subtle warmth coming through paired with a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had larger, more visible sparkle compared to most shades in the highlighter range, so for those who prefer a smoother, shinier finish, it may be too sparkly. The texture felt almost wet to the touch, but the powder itself was more...

Natasha Denona Tan Puff Paint Blush Serum Review & Swatches

Tan Natasha Denona Tan Puff Paint Liquid Blush SerumNatasha Denona Tan Puff Paint Liquid Blush Serum ($22.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a darker peach with warm undertones tempered and muted with hints of brown paired with a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer to medium color payoff initially, which could be built up (as marketed) or sheered out further if desired. The texture was lightweight, thin, and almost like a very watery gel, as it glide...

Lisa Eldridge Pink Soap Enlivening Blush Review & Swatches

Pink Soap Lisa Eldridge Pink Soap Enlivening Blush ($34.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a medium pink with muted, warm undertones and a natural finish. It looked like just-hydrated skin–slight sheen but not wet or glossy–when it dried down. It had sheer, buildable pigmentation, as marketed, when working with a very small amount (that was as recommended by the brand). The texture was smooth, lightweight, and creamy with more density/thickness and...

Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Crystal Nebula Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light, yellowy gold with fine, lighter pearl and a soft, luminous sheen. It imparted a glowing, almost wet-like shine to my skin that wasn’t overtly shimmery but was more intense than a lot of other liquid highlighters on the market (which are often very sheer and lower in pearl). It had a sheerer base, but the intensity of the glow was ...

Makeup by Mario Dusty Rose Soft Pop Blush Stick Review & Swatches

Dusty Rose Makeup by Mario Dusty Rose Soft Pop Blush StickMakeup by Mario Dusty Rose Soft Pop Blush Stick ($28.00 for 0.37 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and a dewy finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation when applied and blended out on my face; it was a formula that naturally sheered out, so while it may have seemed more pigmented initially, it was sheerer and more buildable as described by the brand. The pr...

Lisa Eldridge Celestial Fire Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Celestial Fire Lisa Eldridge Celestial Fire Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light-medium copper with warmer, fine gold pearl and a dewy sheen. It had sheer pigmentation, as marketed, that was somewhat buildable to more medium coverage if layered up, though I’d say that the finish became more shimmery and intense when layered overall. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin without being too watery or too d...

Lethal Cosmetics Flare Pressed Highlighter Review & Swatches

Flare Lethal Cosmetics Flare Magnetic Pressed Highlighter ($18.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light-medium copper with warm, reddish-brown undertones and a luminous sheen. It appeared more metallic when initially swatched, but applied and blended out on my cheeks, it was a softer glow that never emphasized my skin’s natural texture. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer but could be applied with a lighter hand or diffused more heavil...

Darya Natasha Denona Darya Puff Paint Liquid Blush SerumNatasha Denona Darya Puff Paint Liquid Blush Serum ($22.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium, pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a natural finish. It wasn’t quite dewy, but it had a hydrated, natural sheen that wasn’t tacky and fairly transfer-resistant (but not transfer-proof!). It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable pigmentation (as marketed), which layered well on i...

Lisa Eldridge Cosmic Rose Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Cosmic Rose Lisa Eldridge Cosmic Rose Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light, golden peach with ultra-fine pearl that gave it a soft, luminous sheen when left to set and dry down on skin. It wasn’t transfer-proof but fairly transfer-resistant, and it was key to let it set as this was how one achieved the “smoothing” effect that helped the product meld better with skin and appear reflective and glowing without bei...

Pat McGrath Divine Rose Divine Blush Review & Swatches

Divine Rose Pat McGrath Divine Rose Divine BlushPat McGrath Divine Rose Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a soft, light-medium rosy mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage, but it took more effort to sheer it out than anticipated based on the brand’s claims (so as long as being more pigmented isn’t a deal-breaker, there are no real cons to the formula!). I suspe...

Cherish Pat McGrath Cherish Divine BlushPat McGrath Cherish Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with near opaque coverage in a single layer, so I’d recommend using a very light hand when working with it to achieve the sheer coverage mentioned by the brand (the formula was supposed to be buildable). The texture was soft, smooth,...

Coconut Rum Bite Beauty Coconut Rum Daycation Whipped BlushBite Beauty Coconut Rum Daycation Whipped Blush ($32.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a light brown with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. It had the finest pearl within the range, so it was easier to work with than others in the line, though it was still a drier formula that did not like to diffuse and blend out. It had semi-sheer coverage, which didn’t really build up; the best way...

Pat McGrath Lovestruck Divine Blush Review & Swatches

Lovestruck Pat McGrath Lovestruck Divine BlushPat McGrath Lovestruck Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation, which made it one of the more buildable shades in the range–and thus, closer to the brand’s marketing of the formula. It did not feel like I had to pile it on to get more opacity, and I didn’t have to use the world’s lightes...

It had the type of pigmentation that wasn’t so intense that it could be diffused and sheered out if one forgot to use a ...

The texture was smooth, lightly emollient, and had a gel-like glide on my skin, w...

It had mostly opaque color coverage, which was buildable to full coverage with a second. The consistency was soft, smooth, and not too...

Watermelon Marg Bite Beauty Watermelon Marg Daycation Whipped BlushBite Beauty Watermelon Marg Daycation Whipped Blush ($32.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a light, pinky lavender with iridescent micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The blush lacked dimension applied, despite the sparkle, as the underlying base was so flat–definitely not “natural-looking” as marketed. The consistency felt like a whipped mousse, and it was very quick to dry down ...

ColourPop Voile Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Voile ColourPop Voile Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage when applied with a fingertip and more medium, buildable coverage applied with a synthetic brush. I’d recommend using a blush for this shade, as I found it was a little too emollient and was harder to apply evenly, especially along the edges, with a fingertip (my go-to ...

Universal Urban Decay Universal Liquid HighlighterUrban Decay Universal Liquid Highlighter ($32.00 for 1.35 oz.) is a soft, peachy beige with barely-there pearl that gave it more of a glass-like sheen on skin. It’s supposed to be a universal shade, and it was rather translucent in practice as it stretched and blended out very readily, though I couldn’t say whether it would look lighter or have an ashy cast on deep skin. The texture ...
