Candy Pink (200)

Make Up For Ever Candy Pink (200) Artist Acrylip ($24.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had intense, opaque color coverage with little product.

It’s a liquid lipstick formula that is supposed to have “buildable color intensity and shine” with a “non-sticky, non-drying” formula that includes a slanted, flocked applicator and a squeeze-tube format. I don’t know that I would really describe it as buildable; I would say that you can apply the tiniest amount and get less coverage, though it would still be medium-to-semi-opaque and have less shine. For me, it seemed that more product yielded glossier coverage with slightly more pigmentation. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and spread easily across the lips. If I pressed my lips together, I could see faint “lines,” particular with lighter shades like this one. It lasted for five and a half hours on me and was non-drying. It didn’t seem to have any noticeable scent or taste.

Pink Ingenue

Estee Lauder Pink Ingenue Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that was true-to-pan in color and depth.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The texture was a little firmer int he pan but still soft, finely-milled, and fairly easy to blend on the skin. It wore well for eight hours before fading on me.

Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette ($26.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes 11 eyeshadows in a small, compact case. I had no trouble getting an average-sized eyeshadow brush into each pan, but the quality of the palette was actually surprisingly bad–there was a cheapness to the formula that made colors look lighter and more white-based to the point where half the shades looked alike once on the lid. This was compounded by the fact that the palette itself lacks variety; a lot of light and light-medium shades and the one really dark shade (which ends up making more work for you as it was so difficult to blend and keep to small areas due to how dusty it was).

I have found that Too Faced’s formula tends to require eyeshadow primer to adhere and last awhile, but I can normally apply and get something decent without primer; these looked like utter garbage even over primer (like I just threw and rubbed glitter and pearl on my lid with no differentiation between colors). As I tested the palette, all I could think of, “Did Too Faced even try?” This palette made their holiday palettes–which weren’t so hot–look like winners. The funniest part is that there are several repeated shades from one of the holiday palettes, and they were better in that palette than they were here.
