Urban Decay Brilliance & Ancient Lip Eclipses Reviews & Swatches

Brilliance Urban Decay Brilliance Lip Eclipse LipstickUrban Decay Brilliance Lip Eclipse Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.06 oz.) has a sheer, peachy-gold base with flecks of lighter and darker gold micro-glitter throughout. The brand described this shade as “sheer,” so it was in line with how it was marketed. The texture was lightweight, thin, and lightly emollient with more of an oily slip, so it was harder to keep on and had a tendency to gr...

MAC x Rosalia R Picks Highlighter Palette Review & Swatches

R Picks MAC R Picks Extra Dimension Skinfinish x 4 Palette ($60.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a new, limited edition highlighter palette that included four shades with three being more luminous and one being more satin-like. All four shades had semi-opaque to opaque color payoff, were blendable, and sat well on my skin without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. They have a gel-powder hybrid formula, which means the powders can feel almost “...

MAC Achiote & Nuez Moscada Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Achiote MAC Achiote Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium pink-leaning coral with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage in a single layer, though the lipstick wasn’t as forgiving of texture imperfections and could have applied more evenly as a result. The consistency was lightweight, lightly emollient but not slippery, which made it comfortable to wear but not prone to slidi...

MAC Hypnotizing Holiday Shadeshifter Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Behind the Curtain MAC Behind the Curtain Shadeshifter Duochrome Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a silvery lilac with a sparkling, metallic sheen that shifted from cooler, more silvery lilac to warmer pink. The texture was incredibly emollient, which helped the larger sparkle particles transfer and adhere to skin without lots of fallout. I found that I had to take care and do gentle blending to avoid excessive fallout, though, an...

Red Chile MAC Red Chili Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deep red with strong, cool blue undertones and a satin finish with barely-there ruby red micro-shimmer. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly to my lips and didn’t accentuate lip texture or gather into my lip lines. The consistency was lightweight, slightly firmer initially but not enough to tug or be uncomfortable to apply. It lasted well for over six hours, ...

It had semi-sheer color payoff in a single layer, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with three layers. The texture had a lot of glide, which made it harder to deposit color evenly, though it wasn’t a “wet” glide so it didn’t settle into fine lines readily. It wore ...

It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to my lips but pulled away and settled into some of my deeper lip lines, so it wasn’t as forgiving as other shades in the range. The lipstick had a denser, slightly thicker feel, which may have accounted for the settling. It wore...

I don’t know in what world it makes sense to use the shades independently–the audacity to even give them separate names even!!–because the only way to do that would be to use very small eyeshadow brushes!

Step Bright Up (Light) MAC Step Bright Up (Light) Extra Dimension Skinfinish Trio ($39.50 for 0.31 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio of lighter-leaning highlighters. Two of three shades had more medium, buildable coverage, which was what brought their ratings down somewhat, and most of the brand’s past releases in this formula have been fairly opaque. Otherwise, the three highlighters applied evenly to bare skin, blended out well, a...

Charlotte Tilbury Celestial Pearl Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Celestial Pearl Charlotte Tilbury Celestial Pearl Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a new, limited edition all-shimmer eyeshadow quad for the holiday season. The quality was decent, but the formulas were best used with a dampened brush and/or fingertip for richer, smoother application with less fallout. To my eye, and even on my coloring, the colors tended to blend together and lose contrast, so it was a more muddied look–I thin...
