Indie Brands

The best is the creativity and freedom that the brands have to put out exactly the type of products they think are missing from the industry. The worst is dealing with drama and entrepreneurs who either do not know how to run a business and/or take everything personally.

Tribulation

NARS Tribulation Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil Set ($59.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes four Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in four new, limited edition shades. Unfortunately, I was not able to finish testing the shades for wear before this set sold out online, but it may still be available at your local Nordstrom (it is an Anniversary sale exclusive). The Velvet Matte Lipstick formula is supposed to have “rich, vivid pigments” with a “velvety matte finish” that is “non-drying.”

High Noon

Sephora High Noon Golden Hour Highlighting Powder ($16.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium copper with golden shimmer and a more frosted sheen when swatched. On the skin, it had a more luminous finish that was glowing but not metallic.

The formula is supposed to have a “soft, luminous glow with a sheer wash of color” that can be “worn alone or layered.” It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The texture was smooth, velvety, and almost cream-like as it was denser but very, very smooth. I found it needed a denser brush to pickup product, so a light hand or a more feathery brush might not yield much product at all. It was easy to blend out on the skin, and the shimmer finish did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter lasted for eight hours on me.
