Huda Beauty Charming Cherry GloWish Blush Powder Review & Swatches

The finish became more glowing as it was buffed and blended out on my skin, so it had a natural sheen but no overt shimmer particles coming through.

Danessa Myricks Spicey Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Spicey Danessa Myricks Spicey Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a medium, reddish-plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy without being too runny or too thin, which helped it maintain its opacity if desired but kept it being spreadable and blendable. The formula was quick to dry down, so I found that it was imperative to use a lot less product than necessary–as it was intensel...
