Phytosurgence Swelter Blush Balm Review & Swatches

Swelter Phytosurgence Swelter Skin Spark Blush Balm ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, reddish-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. It was richly pigmented to the point where one needed the smallest amount to achieve medium coverage, which was easily sheered out and diffused along the edges for a seamless layer of color on cheeks. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and emollient without being too slippery, so I did...

Makeup by Mario The Nudes 1 Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

The Nudes 1 Makeup by Mario The Nudes 1 Four-Play Everyday Eyeshadow Quad ($25.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a new, limited edition neutral-leaning color story that included two shimmery shades and two matte shades. The shimmers were pigmented and blendable, while the mattes were more semi-opaque and buildable–but still more pigmented than marketed–but very easy to work with so as long as more coverage isn’t a deal-breaker, there were no real is...

Makeup by Mario Kate & Brielle Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Kate Makeup by Mario Kate Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a dusty, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones and a soft matte finish. The lipstick had a firmer feel in the tube, which was better applied in shorter, overlapping strokes rather than a single pass as it didn’t have enough glide to do so. It was very lightweight and thin–almost weightless to me–on my lips, but it was flexible enough to be comfortable ...

Melt Cosmetics Monarca Blush Palette Review & Swatches

Monarca Melt Cosmetics Monarca 6-Pan Blush Palette ($58.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a new, limited edition blush palette that was warmer-toned and more coral/orange leaning overall. There was more overlap within the palette than seems necessary for a color grouping, so I wish they had differentiated by finish more, though greater variety of actual color/depth likely would have made it a more versatile palette. The blushes were very pigmented ...

ColourPop Of Quartz Lippie Stix Reviews & Swatches

Chakra Waves ColourPop Chakra Waves Lippie Stix ($7.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, velvety consistency that was slightly thicker but not heavy to wear. It was prone to separating along my deeper lip lines, so I would recommend using a lip pencil underneath. This shade lasted well for four and a half hours and felt non-drying.FURTHER R...

Huda Beauty Light Glow Obsessions Mini Face Palette Review & Swatches

Light Huda Beauty Light Mini Glow Obsessions Face Palette ($29.00 for 0.22 oz.) includes two gold highlighters, a pale pink highlighting blush, and a light copper highlighter. The texture of the formula was where the palette fell short; it was firmer, denser, and thicker overall, which made it harder to pick up product evenly with a brush. In order to do so, I typically had to use my brush to push upward or jab a little to get produc...

ColourPop x Nightmare Before Christmas Lux Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Jack Skellington ColourPop Jack Skellington Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, ruby red with strong, cool blue undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and comfortably across my lips without tugging. The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and lightweight without being overly emollient, so it stayed in place well. There was a touch of product in my deeper lip lines but not enoug...

Dior Taupe Ispahan & Midnight Corolle Diorific Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Taupe Ispahan (076) Dior Taupe Ispahan (076) Diorific Lipstick ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a subdued, darker reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous, cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which delivered even, smooth coverage with a formula that softened and smoothed out most of my lip lines. It was also quite forgiving of imperfections in lip texture! The consistency was lightweight, emol...

ColourPop A Pretty Penny Blush & Lite Stix Duo Review & Swatches

A Pretty Penny ColourPop A Pretty Penny Blush & Lite Stix Duo ($14.00 for 0.61 oz.) includes a light-medium gold cream highlighter and a soft peach cream blush. Both shades were emollient, blendable, and easy to work with on bare skin or layered over a foundation, and they performed consistently with their respective formulas (their “worst” attribute being more pigmented than marketed). ...

Makeup by Mario Sierra & Sam Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Sierra Makeup by Mario Sierra Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warmer, more orange undertones and a soft matte finish. The texture was firmer in the tube, almost stiff to work with, so I had to use a firmer hand to drag it across my lips, which did not make it the most comfortable formula to apply. It felt more silicone-like where the product pilled a little as I worked with it, and this was furth...

Tom Ford Naked Pink Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

Naked Pink Tom Ford Beauty Naked Pink Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition peach palette for the holiday season. (Not sure why it isn’t called Naked Peach, honestly!) The quality was so-so with the lowest-rated shade being sheerer and more prone to fallout, which is more typical for this type of shade from Tom Ford (sparkly). Obviously, for a luxury price point, I would and do expect better since I’ve seen To...

MAC Red Chili & Rusi Woo Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

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, ...

MAC Fortune Teller/Blizzard Wizard Hyper Real Glow Duo Review & Swatches

Fortune Teller/Blizzard Wizard MAC Fortune Teller/Blizzard Wizard Hyper Real Glow Duo ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) swirls together to create a light-medium, rosy copper with soft, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. 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! It had a very ...

MAC Step Bright Up (Light) Extra Dimension Skinfinish Trio Review & Swatches

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...

Fenty Beauty Triple Dip Diamond Bomb Diamond Veil Palette Review & Swatches

Triple Dip Fenty Beauty Triple Dip Diamond Bomb Diamond Veil Palette ($42.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes three, sparkling highlighters with two new shades and one previously-released shade (Fenty Glow). The key takeaways one needs to know about this formula is that it is high-sparkle with a sheerer base and a consistency that can be fussy (ha, ha) to work with. I find fingertips to work the best for getting product from the compact to my s...

There was a grayish cast when worn more heavily, though it seemed rosier when applied semi-sheer to medium. The texture was silky-smooth, finely-milled but not overly powdery, and picked up well with a brush for an even, smooth application of powder. It had medium, buildable pigm...

Shiseido Set to Sell Laura Mercier, BareMinerals, and Buxom

We all knew it was coming and the rumours were circulating but we have confirmation today that Shiseido will sell Laura Mercier, BareMinerals, and Buxom to a private equity firm, Advent International. Shiseido Japan could be struggling slightly under the weight of the lockdown as it heavily affected brands like Etude House who closed many stores across Asia and invested more on their online presence but as of now, there’s been no mention of issues with brands under parented by Shiseido in Japan...
