Cutie Pie

Coloured Raine Cutie Pie Focal Point Glowlighter ($25.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warmer undertones and cooler, lavender pearl. It had medium pigmentation, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two layers. The texture was chunkier and did not seem as finely-milled as most shades in the range, and it was quite dense. I had to use a heavier hand with a blush brush to get medium coverage with one swirl in the compact. The color shifted from a pinkish white to a more noticeable pinkish hue on my skin tone, depending on the angle and how the light was reflecting off of my cheeks (that is why you’ll see two full face photos with shade as it was such a dramatic shift). The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

The Focal Point Glowlighter formula is supposed to be “butter soft” with “high impact luminous glow.” There are eight shades available from pale duochromes to deep copperS (view all swatches here). The formula was denser, firmer, and a little creamier than the average powder highlighter, so fluffy, less dense brushes had trouble picking up a lot of product, whereas denser highlighting brushes and blush brushes picked up product just fine. Most of the shades were quite smooth in feel with medium to full coverage and a strong, reflective shine on the skin and lasted for eight to nine hours. If you’re someone who likes buildable highlighters from medium to opaque with a metallic sheen, these might be right up your alley.

Fragrance Rollerballs

I prefer the overall effect of a more traditional spray bottle, but I love how travel-friendly rollerballs are. It’s also a nice way to have a scent on hand that you might not finish quickly, so they aren’t as expensive to acquire.

Jouer Skinny Dip Ultra Foil Shimmer Shadows Palette ($40.00 for 0.26 oz.) includes six, “intense, shimmering metallic” eyeshadows that can be used together or as a “glittering accent.” They’re supposed to be long-wearing, highly pigmented, and crease-resistant; and the founder also stated that the formula could be “used as a liner with its wet-to-dry finish,” which I read as that it could also be used damp. The formula was lovely to work with as long as you enjoy an intense shine with moderate to high amounts of sparkle. All six eyeshadows had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, were blendable, easy to use, and long-wearing. They worked well with a dampened brush as well, but it did not seem like a must in order to enjoy the palette by any means.

Anastasia Blush Trio ($30.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes three coordinated blushes in medium-sized compact. The blush formula is supposed to be “finely-milled” and “full-pigmented” for “buildable intensity with a seamless finish.” Based on my interpretation, it seemed to say that it was buildable up to full coverage. The first two shades were very pigmented, while the third was more buildable (truer to the coverage claim). The first shade was harder to blend and diffuse but the remaining two were easy to use.

There are five trios available. They are presently available through Anastasia directly and will be available online at other retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd.
