Coloured Raine Birthday Suit Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.064 oz.) is a soft, light-medium peach with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was soft, blendable, and smooth without being too powdery or too firm in the pan. It had great color payoff that applied evenly to the skin and lasted for eight hours on me.

Temptalia Asks You

I used to do it occasionally, but I am, in general, over it! There are still exceptions, of course, but I have tended to make it for products that are discontinued and get one backup–assuming it’s a product I use often. The last time I went crazy was when Burberry discontinued Trench eyeshadow, which is just a boring beige but was the perfect beige for my brow bone highlight. I bought four backups, and I’ve used two of them and will most certainly finish the rest!

NYX Moon Glow Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter

Moon Glow

NYX Moon Glow Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a pale white with neutral-to-cool undertones and a very fine pearl. This was one of the least “shimmery’” shades, though it still gave the skin a subtle sheen. It seemed to be more watery than most shades, which may have accounted for its sheerer coverage that was only buildable to medium coverage. It dried down quickly but still gave me enough time to work with the product and blend it out evenly. The highlighter lasted for just over seven and a half hours on me.

The Away We Glow formula is a liquid highlighter that has buildable coverage “from soft to intense.” The brand recommends to “dab and blend” on skin for “irresistible illumination.” There are nine shades available, and the shimmer varied from shade to shade: fine pearl to chunkier sparkle. The formula has a watery, thin feel from the tube, and I liked getting a bit on the back of my hand and then dabbing with fingertips or a stippling brush onto the cheeks and high planes of the face for highlighting. It did dry down after a minute or so, and the wear ranged from seven to eight hours.

The Best & Worst | Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur

Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur
Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur

Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a lipstick pencil that twists-up (no sharpening required) and has a consistency that is incredibly creamy, soft, and smooth. The coverage varied from mostly opaque to opaque, depending on the shade, and the wear time ranged between three to five hours with some shades (like the reds and fuchsias) leaving a stain behind. It was a very hydrating and comfortable formula to wear, but they’re so soft that I felt like it was easy to over-apply the product when there isn’t much product in each tube (0.04 oz. compared to a standard Chanel lipstick, which is 0.12 oz.). Twist-up pencils usually contain less product than a twist-up tube of lipstick, but I wish these had a little more (like 0.08 oz.) or else not quite as pricey. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.
