Huda Beauty Charming Cherry GloWish Blush Powder Review & Swatches

Charming Cherry (04) Huda Beauty Charming Cherry (04) GloWish Cheeky Vegan Blush Powder ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a bright, raspberry pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a satin finish. 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. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which I’m sure some will prefer, but the for...

Dior Atelier Dore (469) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Atelier Dore (469) Dior Atelier Dore (469) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition neutral palette for the holiday season. It features three more pearly eyeshadows, one more metallic eyeshadow in the center, and one deeper matte. The quad had some contrast, given the matte was quite dark, and I felt like the undertones flowed together without being too much the same. The quality was good ac...

Dior House of Dreams (739) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

House of Dreams (739) Dior House of Dreams (739) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday release that included four more neutral shades (three shimmers, one matte) accented by a metallic silver in the center. The three lighter shimmers were more prone to running together, so the palette didn’t produce a lot of different looks as a result. The quality was there, though, as the eyesha...

Miami Heat ColourPop Miami Heat 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition warm-toned color story featuring four metallic eyeshadows and five (mostly) matte eyeshadows. All nine shades performed well enough with a few shades being a little powdery and/or more buildable in coverage (but by no means sheer) and wore for around eight hours on me. Ingredients ...

Pat McGrath Lunar Nude Sublime Skin Highlighter Review & Swatches

Lunar Nude Pat McGrath Lunar Nude Sublime Skin Highlighter ($60.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a medium, golden peach with warmer undertones and fine micro-sparkle that flashed blue and violet at times (though not a true duochrome). The powder highlighter had a smooth, lightly metallic sheen that delivered more shine than overt shimmer/sparkle on skin, so it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The formula is a gel-powder hybrid, so it ha...

Tom Ford Bare Assed & Honeyed Coral Gloss Luxe Reviews & Swatches

Bare Assed Tom Ford Beauty Bare Assed Gloss LuxeTom Ford Beauty Bare Assed Gloss Luxe ($57.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with subtle, warm undertones and a dusting of gold shimmer/micro-sparkle throughout a high-shine finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, which seemed in line with the brand’s marketing, that applied evenly across my lips. The texture was smooth, plush, and like a gel-like cream, as it was thicker but not ...

Pat McGrath Deep Space Divinity Celestial Odyssey Luxe Quad Review & Swatches

Deep Space Divinity Pat McGrath Deep Space Divinity Celestial Odyssey Luxe Quad ($54.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition smokier, neutral quad that included three metallic eyeshadows and one matte eyeshadow. All four shades were pigmented, while the matte needed to be built up slightly and the duochrome shimmer was more emollient so it didn’t apply as easily as the brand’s metallic eyeshadows typically do. Ingredients ...

Amber Allure Pat McGrath Amber Allure Divine Blush & Glow TrioPat McGrath Amber Allure Divine Blush & Glow Trio ($52.00 for 0.37 oz.) includes two permanent blush shades and a new highlighter, though I found Lovestruck to be noticeably cooler-toned and more blue-based in the palette (and I triple-checked in person, since the individual blushes just released!). If you are warmer-toned, the difference may be more noticeable between the ...

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...

Terra Moons Dark Energy, Siren, Star Sign Duochrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Dark Energy Terra Moons Dark Energy Duochrome Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened purple base with blue and purple shimmer that gave it a soft, metallic sheen. The texture was denser, slightly thicker than most of the brand’s eyeshadows, but it was incredibly pigmented where a little went a long way. The denser, creamier consistency helped the product adhere evenly to bare skin and have longer wear, as it lasted for nine ho...

The texture was smooth, moderately dense, and slightly firmer to the touch, as I expected a gel-powder based formula to be, but it was more yielding to a brush than the original Cheek Pop formula was, so some may find it easier to use overall.

Ruby Taboo MAC Ruby Taboo Lipglass ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a darker, orange-copper with flecks of larger copper sparkle and some pinkish-red sparkle throughout. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which could have applied more evenly as some of the sparkles seemed more prone to clumping up and settling into my deeper lip lines. The texture was thicker, definitely tacky, but smooth and spreadable. It lasted well for five hours and was mo...

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 ...

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...
