Persona Georgia Super Blush Review & Swatches

Georgia Persona Georgia Super Blush ($22.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a brighter pop of medium coral-orange with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, so I’d say it was more pigmented than it was naturally buildable, but the texture was yielding and workable for use with a lighter hand (or less-dense brush) to achieve more buildable coverage with the right technique. The consistency was...

MAC Dazzleshadow Extreme Reviews & Swatches (Part 2)

Incinerated MAC Incinerated Dazzleshadow Extreme ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense and more firmly-pressed into the pan, so it needed a firmer hand or a denser brush to pick up product well (e.g. a pencil brush picked up product fairly well but a fluffy brush was difficult to use with it). It had good color coverage in a si...

Jouer Deep to Dark Sunswept Bronzer Duo Review & Swatches

Deep to Dark Jouer Deep to Dark Sunswept Bronzer Duo ($30.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a new, permanent bronzer duo designed for deeper skin tones. As both shades are more matte and slightly thinner in consistency with the deeper shade taking a little extra effort to diffuse and blend out, particularly over bare skin, due to its inclination in darkening a touch when it came into contact with the natural oils on my skin. Otherwise, both shad...

NABLA Cosmetics Coral Cutie Palette Review & Swatches

Coral NABLA Cosmetics Coral Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, permanent six-pan palette that featured two matte shades, three metallic shades, and one more satin shade. All six shades were pigmented, long-wearing, and were easy to work with. The shimmer shades had a creamier, more emollient texture but weren’t too slippery applied and still worked well with brushes. The brand could be clearer about which shades were Pressed...

Fenty Beauty Pastel Frost (8) Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Pastel Frost (8) Fenty Beauty Pastel Frost (8) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, permanent all-shimmer palette that proved disappointing. The newer Fenty palettes were inconsistent, but the matte eyeshadows tended to be more workable and easier to use all-around, while the shimmers were all over the place. These were some of the worst as they were thicker and stiffer in texture, which yiel...

Halsey's Glittery Manic Bruise Is "Like a Badge of Honor" - Here's How She Creates the Look

Inspired by David Bowie's fearlessness and Patti Smith's androgyny, Halsey bravely takes on new beauty looks no matter how extreme, including the glittery bruise she gave herself on the cover of her latest album, Manic. In a Vogue makeup tutorial, the "You Should Be Sad" singer shared exactly how she created the watercolor-like look and opened up about her inspiration behind the beautiful yet slightly gruesome makeup. "I wanted to make it almost like a badge of honor for what I've bee...

This Timothée Chalamet Transformation Has Already Been Cast in the Next Little Women

Timothée Chalamet is inimitable. In the age of advanced makeup artistry and TikTok trickery, however, he might not be as inimitable as we thought. Charlotte Roberts, a 16-year-old makeup artist and blogger, recently went viral for her transformation into the brooding boy wonder. In addition to her TikTok tutorial, which received over 360K likes, Roberts also shared photos of the transformation on Instagram, as well as a breakdown of the products she used, including Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Contou...

Marc Jacobs Beauty Moonstoned, Gleam Girl, Topaz Flash See-quins Liquid Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Moonstoned (76) Marc Jacobs Beauty Moonstoned (76) See-quins Glam Glitter Liquid Eyeshadow ($26.00 for 0.19 oz.) seemed to have a more translucent base with flecks of silver and white sparkle that shifted pink. This worked best as a layering product on top of anything else to add sparkle and shimmer as it had semi-sheer coverage that didn’t build up well. The texture felt more watery compared to other shades, but most of the shimm...

ColourPop 310 Pressed Powder Bronzer Review & Swatches

310 Colour Pop 310 Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, orange-brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage if desired. The texture was smooth, velvety but moderately powdery, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand to avoid picking up too much product at once. It seemed to darken slightly and appeared ...

These Are the 16 Absolute Best Mascaras, According to Pro Makeup Artists

If you ask someone what their number one must-have makeup item is, they will often say mascara. It has the ability to totally transform a look with just a few simple swipes. But considering how many people wear it on a daily basis, it can be a total maze in the quest to finding the perfect one. Despite each mascara doing the same job as one another and essentially having the same components, there is still a lot to consider. Do you want a fat wand or a superthin wand? Do you want a wet or drier...

Hayley Kiyoko is the relatable beauty guru we've been waiting for. In a Vogue makeup tutorial on Monday, Kiyoko dropped a few of her favorite beauty tips, and her brutal honesty about keeping her routine simple is so refreshing. "Most of the time, to be honest, I just wash my face and I go," the "Girls Like Girls" singer said.

These Are the Exact Makeup Products King Princess Will Be Bringing on Tour With Her

"We stan a beauty icon," one fan commented during Mikaela Straus's (or as most people know her, King Princess) recent Instagram Live. The singer went onto the social media platform to showcase some of the makeup she will be using on her upcoming Cheap Queen tour, and there was plenty. King Princess first introduced the bevy of products on her Instagram stories: "I could cry," she said to the pile of makeup in front of her. "She's a woman now."

How To Save On All Your Favorite Beauty Essentials Over Memorial Day Weekend

More than a break from the hustle of work, MDW is the official entrée into summer. The change in weather, from breezy to scorching, calls for a reassessment of your beauty regimen.

MAC x Disney Aladdin Rose Pigment Reviews & Swatches

Rose MAC Rose Pigment ($21.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and much warmer, golden shimmer (and lots of it!) that gave it a metallic finish. It’s a loose product, but it has a chunkier shimmer to it–more frosted than most shimmers are these days–and tends to work best really pressed and patted on with fingertips or applied with a wet brush. Applied dry as an eyeshadow, I find it tends to have a fair amount of fallout (even when I’m careful), but it ...

Chanel Blurry Blue (324) Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Blurry Blue (324) Chanel Blurry Blue (324) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent (or so it seems, as it is not listed as limited edition on the brand’s website) featuring a smokier set of shades–two taupes, a deep (but faded) blue, and mid-depth gray. For me, I could see this as an anchor palette–one that will complement a lot of other palettes (particularly your lighter or more shimmery palettes)–but runs together a lot on its own. The pi...

This $30 Highlighter Is The Key To Jodie Comer's Glowing Skin

Every now and again, Hollywood gifts us a breakout actress who understands what really makes a red carpet beauty star. Most often, she is a risk-taker, wearing eyeliner in ways we haven't seen before, and trying hairstyles that make us reconsider our lazy messy buns. She's also usually got impossibly glowing skin that leads to an obsession with finding out what skin-care routine — and aesthetician — is responsible.Recently, we've had our eye on Jodie Comer, who stars in the TV series Killing E...

Proof The Smoky Eye Is Back — & It Looks Good On Everyone

If you thought New York Fashion Week would be immune to the minimalist makeup trends sweeping the industry, well, you'd be wrong. Season after season, designers sent models down the runway "as they were" — save for a tap of concealer and maybe a brush of brow gel. Luckily, that barely-there phase seems to be ending. The latest showcase of fall and winter collections proves that one of the moodiest makeup trends is making a return: the smoky eye.Smoky eyes aren't new, but they are the antithesis...

10 Eyelash Curlers Pros Swear By For Wide-Awake Eyes

Like primers, setting sprays, or ugly skin-care products, eyelash curlers don't get a lot of love. They offer no pigment or color payoff and they're scarily clinical, thus usually hidden in the bottom corner of our makeup bags. But pros tell us that the eyelash curler is one of the most overlooked makeup tools in our arsenal. Curlers can actually make a huge difference in the look of our lashes, drawing the eye upward and creating length and volume, without adding six coats of mascara — that is...

Every Product You Need To Get The "Dewy Dumpling" Glow From Instagram

Before the Kardashians and YouTube, most of the general public had no idea what contouring and highlighting was. Still, one quick look at the history books will tell you that people have been using matte bronzer and shimmery powder to create facial illusions for centuries.In the mid-1500s, stage performers would use chalk and soot to exaggerate their facial expressions for the audience. When artificial lighting was finally developed 300 years later, actors ditched the dirt for waxy, oily creams...
