Anastasia Teal Shimmer, Dragonfly, Fresh Green, Opaline, Blue Star Eyeshadows

Anastasia Teal Shimmer Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium blue with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a dry consistency that was a little loose in the pan and hard to apply to the skin. I had trouble blending it out and keeping it even, as it had a tendency to stick more to certain places. It lasted for six hours on me. Rouge Bunny Rouge Mysterious Tinamou (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Sugarpill Holy Ghost (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar).

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick for Spring 2016

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick


Made with 65% oils, the deeply hydrating texture instantly melts into lips providing a pop of color, instant hydration, and all day comfort. After 4 weeks, lips look healthy and more nourished. 6 oils for 6 benefits: hydration, high shine, comfort, ultra-melting, luminosity, and smoothness. With the addicting signature YSL mango scent, these lipsticks are good enough to eat. Now in 12 brand new shades, from modern neutrals, playful pinks and intense berries, there is a Rouge Volupte Shine for every moment.

Antioxidants in natural extracts of pomegranate and rosemary reduce the look of fine lines, while candellila resin forms a thin, protective layer to help lock in moisture and magnify color and shine. Mineral pigments provide bright, vibrant color and a melting formula (instead of a solid stick) enabling smoother glide-on application and an ultrafine lightweight film on lips. Hyaluronic acid spheres hydrate and soften lips to help seal in moisture for up to eight hours of hydration.

MAC Black Walnut, Cat’s Meow, Squid Modern Twist Kajal Liners

MAC Modern Twist Kajal Liner ($17.00 for 0.01 oz.) is supposed to be an “easy-glide formula” with a “soft texture that’s perfect for rimming the sensitive waterline” that has “colour intensity and extreme depth” in a “long-wearing waterproof formula.” It’s a slim, twist-up eyeliner thas has light slip–not enough to slide around too easily but enough not to tug–with semi-opaque to mostly opaque coverage in one stroke. They felt creamier rather than waxy to me. On me, the formula wore between six and nine hours on me before noticeably thinning. None of them lasted for more than a few hours on the waterline, and some shades applied better/worse on the waterline. Some shades flaked while they wore, between four and six hours in (noted by the shade).

Natasha Denona Oxide, Golden Rose, Golden Beige, Petroleum Blue, Deep Pacific Eyeshadows

Natasha Denona Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.08 oz.) comes in 66 shades with four distinct finishes (Matte, Duo-Chrome, Metallic, and Sparkling). According to the brand, the eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “full, rich and intense color that won’t fade out, be “long-lasting,” and smooth. The majority of the shimmery shades were very pigmented with a soft consistency that was something just right and other times a little prone to crumbling/loosening in the pan, while the mattes were smooth but quite powdery, which resulted it color that didn’t adhere to bare skin as readily. The texture of most shades is soft, blendable, and most of the shimmery shades I’ve tested applied well to bare skin. The wear was fairly consistent, but there was some variance from shade to shade (which didn’t seem related to finish). The wear has ranged from five to eight hours, depending on the shade. Primer helps with longevity, adding two to three hours to the shade’s no-primer wear time, but they seem like shorter-wearing eyeshadows compared to most powder formulas I’ve tried.
