JD Glow Serenity Pressed Powder Illuminator Review & Swatches

Serenity JD Glow Serenity Pressed Powder Illuminator ($16.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a bright, medium pink base with moderate, warm undertones paired with lighter, peachy-gold shimmer that gave it a stronger, warmer feel altogether. The highlighter had a fairly strong, luminous glow that stopped short of emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easy to blend out for a sheerer effect ...

Clionadh Crown Glass & Lunette Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Crown Glass Clionadh Crown Glass Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened base with a multichrome finish that shifted between navy blue, purplish-blue, brighter purple, and red. Per the brand, the shade shifts between “teal-indigo-pink-red-gold.” It had a very high-shine, reflective metallic finish. I was just barely able to detect a bit of gold–more like pink-peach–at the very, very edge of arm swatches...

JD Glow Peachy Keen, Prismatic, Watermark, Bora Bora, Peacock Galaxy Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Peachy Keen JD Glow Peachy Keen Galaxy Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky-peach base–more pink than peach–paired with light gold-to-green shifting shimmer. It had a very strong shift to an almost lime-like green, and the finish itself was a very smooth, reflective metallic. The texture felt soft, smooth, and not too densely pressed into the pan, which made it easy to work with and to blend out on my lid. It ha...

Clionadh Forge & Weathered Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Forge Clionadh Forge Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) had a blackened base with a metallic, multichrome shift that went between plummy-brown to brighter plum to bronze to warmer green to emerald green to bluish-teal. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “rose-orange-gold-lime-teal.” The teal was the hardest to see in person as it was just at the most extreme edge, so it was something better viewed in l...

JD Glow Gabrielle Pressed Powder Illuminator Review & Swatches

Gabrielle JD Glow Gabrielle Pressed Powder Illuminator ($16.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a rich, medium copper with strong, warm undertones and a golden sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was powder-like but with some slip to it. The texture was lightweight, thin without being dry or powdery, and had good adhesion to bare skin while blending out nicely along the edges. It didn’t emphasize my s...

Patina Clionadh Patina Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened base with a metallic, multichrome finish that shifted between warmer, chartreuse green, olive green, emerald green, and green-leaning teal. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “gold-lime-emerald-turquoise.” I felt like I detected all of the shifts as the brand described, but the shifts are subtle as the gradient is more natural (li...

Natasha Denona Bronze Face Glow Palette Review & Swatches

Bronze Natasha Denona Bronze Face Glow Palette ($55.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a new, seemingly-permanent palette that features four luminous shades with two cream-based formulas and two powder-based formulas. The cream formulas were disappointing and a deliberate departure from the brand’s prior formulas but not in a good way. The powder formulas were consistent with past releases–they worked best with denser brushes/firmer hand but have...

JD Glow Essence Pressed Powder Illuminator Review & Swatches

Essence JD Glow Essence Pressed Powder Illuminator ($16.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark copper with warm, rosy undertones paired with a metallic finish. It had an incredibly intense shine, which resulted in some emphasis of my skin’s natural texture at higher coverage. The texture felt smooth, lightly creamy without being too firmly-pressed into the pan nor was it thick in consistency, which ensured it picked up w...

JD Glow Beyunce Pressed Powder Illuminator Review & Swatches

Beyunce JD Glow Beyunce Pressed Powder Illuminator ($16.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a peachy beige base that shifted from very warm, peach-gold to lighter, warm pink with an intense, sparkling sheen. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture felt lightly emollient, almost like a thin, creamy powder, so no powderiness at all, yet it picked up readily with a highlighting brush and distr...

Sydney Grace Kaylie, Sarah, Lesley Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Kaylie Sydney Grace Kaylie Lip Gloss ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a dusty, medium coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which spread evenly across my lips but settled and pulled away a bit around my deeper lip lines. The consistency was light-medium in thickness with moderate tackiness, though it was lightweight and stayed in place well. It wore nicely for five hours an...

Longitude Zero (High Intensity) Kosas Longitude Zero (High Intensity) Color and Light Pressed Palette ($34.00 for 0.28 oz.) features “double” the pigment with a deeper pink blush paired with a darker, pinky-beige highlighter. Both shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing; they were easy to work with, and while the formula has more powderiness to it than seems ideal, they actually looked fantastic on my skin as they were a...

It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which spread evenly across my lips and didn’t appear streaky. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines that was visible in the close-up but not in person. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, though not heavy to we...

ColourPop Miss Bliss Palette Review & Swatches

Miss Bliss Colour Pop Miss Bliss 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, probably limited life (aka around until it’s not!) orange and pink palette with two true mattes, four sparkly mattes, two shimmers, and one glitter. I’m not a huge fan of the “sparkly matte” concept–sometimes you’ll see very fine pearl in a matte, which I’ve been told helps with blending, but the larger sparkles seem unnecessary and are th...

ColourPop In a Trance Palette Review & Swatches

In a Trance ColourPop In a Trance 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, pastel-themed palette with a mix of blues and lavenders. It contained five (mostly) matte shades, three shimmer shades, and one pressed glitter shade. The mattes performed better than I expected; they were pigmented, though lightly to moderately powdery, blendable, and had decent wear. The shimmers were more of a mixed bag, and I have b...

Sydney Grace Candied Peach Loose Highlighter Review & Swatches

Candied Peach Sydney Grace Candied Peach Loose Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light, pink-peach base with strong, warm golden shimmer paired with a metallic sheen. It had a stronger, golden shift at certain angles, so the base seemed pink, while the shimmer was higher-contrast. The texture was finely-milled, silky, and weighted enough not to be prone to making a mess (as loose powders often are). It had rich color coverag...

Pink Lightning Sydney Grace Pink Lightning Loose Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is an ultra-light pink with strong, warm undertones that looks almost golden-beige at certain angles as the finish was quite metallic. It had a finely-milled, silky consistency that was loose but not prone to puffing everywhere in a cloud of fairy dust. The pigmentation varied based on how much product was picked up and with what brush, which is true ...

ColourPop Aura & Out Palette Review & Swatches

Aura and Out Colour Pop Aura and Out 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new eyeshadow palette with five more matte eyeshadows, three shimmer eyeshadows, and one pressed glitter. The mattes were actually better-performing, while the shimmers left a bit to be desired. The matte shades were more substantial, more velvety with greater pigmentation without sheering out too readily. New Age applied decently, while Soul Si...

Desert Haze Charlotte Tilbury Desert Haze Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) is an all-matte quad that features warmer-toned neutrals that still had some saturation but were more toned-down–not as vivid in a way. All four shades had rich pigmentation, while the textures were soft and blendable with light powderiness–mostly present in the pans–that made it easy to use. ...
