Ciate Moondust Glow-To Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a soft, light pink with warm, beige undertones and a sparkling, luminous sheen. It had a moderate to intense glow, depending on how heavy the application, and fine sparkle. I didn’t feel like it read glittery on the skin, but there were larger particles that may not be in keeping with everyone’s preference.

The formula is supposed to be an “ultra-soft luminizer” with “long-wear” and built-up to “intense, bold shimmer.” The powder was soft, smooth, and finely-milled without being dusty, powdery, nor was it too dense or firmly pressed in the compact. It was incredibly easy to blend and diffuse the highlighter on the skin, and even at higher coverage, it did not emphasize smy skin’s natural texture. The highlighter wore well for eight hours on me before fading subtly.

Yes, Please!

ColourPop Yes, Please! Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette filled with twelve shades of warm neutrals in a mix of mattes and shimmers. Almost every single shade performed well, was pigmented, long-wearing, and easy to work with (one fell a little short but wasn’t bad!). The pans were removable, and each one was 0.03 oz. (full-sized eyeshadows are 0.05 from ColourPop), which was plenty of product for a palette without feeling or looking tiny. It released a week or so ago, sold out very quickly, but it will be restocked soon–ColourPop just postponed the restock date yesterday and hasn’t announced a new date yet, but I’m sure it’ll be soon.

It absolutely has several very, very similar shades to the Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette. You can compare them side-by-side here to see just how many shades overlap (all except Spoiled, which is a lot warmer than the closest shade in the Sunset palette, Panjin).

MAC Dare You Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and ruby red pearl. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied beautifully to the lips–smooth, even coverage that made lips appear softer and more supple. The texture was lightweight with light slip but still adhered well while being comfortable to wear over the five and a half hours it lasted for.

MAC Augmented Reality Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied smoothly across the lips. The texture was velvety and smooth, so it did not tug on the lips but still yielded even coverage that adhered well to the lips. It lasted for over eight hours and was lightly drying toward the end of wear.

The shade is part of the upcoming MAC Chromat collection, which launches on June 29th at select MAC locations and online.
