Peony Petal

MAC Peony Petal Blush ($23.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, medium cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a firmer, stiffer consistency. This shade has been released in the past, but the version I received to review for this launch was noticeably harder to use due to the firmly pressed powder. I was able to apply and blend it out enough for fairly even coverage, but it was not easy to use. On me, the color started to fade after eight hours of wear.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Added Fragrance

I’m not a fan, usually, as the scents are often floral-based and overwhelming. I’m using a face moisturizer right now that works well, but I loathe the scent of it.

Enchanted

Anastasia Enchanted Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a deep, violet purple with cooler undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was rather dense, almost thick compared to most of the brand’s formulas (including other frost/metallic shades) but is incredibly pigmented. I would recommend using a flat synthetic brush or medium dome-shaped eyeshadow brush (I used MAC’s 239 just fine with this). If you’re familiar with the more recent silicone-heavy eyeshadows that have released lately, you’ll enjoy the formula as it has that same creamy, smooth feel. The eyeshadow adhered beautifully to bare skin, still blended out, and stayed on for nine hours on me.

The new single eyeshadows will be available at online retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd but are available through Anastasia now.

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palettes for Summer 2017

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette for Summer 2017
Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette for Summer 2017

Inspired by Huda Kattan’s hack of layering oil with powder highlighter to amplify her glow, this palette is packed with two different textures. The Melted Strobe, a pearlescent creamy formula, is enriched with karite butter for a flawless, lit-from-within canvas to layer on powders. The three, light-catching pressed pearls are staggered in complimentary tones to give you sculpted, 3D radiance. With effortless blendability and layering power, this palette lets you build and sculpt your highlight to a desired level of radiance—from subtle, natural radiance to an all-over glow.

Island

Bobbi Brown Island Glow Stick ($36.00 for 0.31 oz.) is medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a dewy finish on the skin, as the formula never dried down. While the finish was always luminous, it had terrible wear–on its own, it had slid around noticeably on my skin after four hours of wear. When I tried it over my liquid foundation, it moved my base around a ton and created a lot of patchiness within two hours of wear. It had sheer coverage, and the pearl in this particular shade made it look spectacular but just required so much maintenance, care, and touch-ups.

It’s supposed to be a “creamy, lightweight highlighter” with “sheer” coverage that gives “an instant, sun-kissed glow that lasts all day.” The formula was very emollient with a lot of slip and wetness; it never dried down and always felt slick on the skin. All of the shades I tried were sheer, and they were not buildable, so several shades ended up looking very similar on my skin tone (but may look more or less different on other skin tones/undertones). The emollient feel of the formula did not play well with products (primers, cream/powder/liquid foundations or blushes).
