Shiseido Hushed Tones, Sweet Desire, Rouge Rum Punch Rouge Rouge Lipsticks

Shiseido Hushed Tones (RD713) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, and the consistency was smooth, lightly emollient, and comfortable to wear. The downside to this shade was how some of the color settled into lip lines as it wore, though it lated for four hours and was hydrating. MAC Without Your Love (LE, $17.00) is more muted (90% similar). Guerlain Rosy Boop (369) (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Taffy (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Cloud (P, $35.00) is glossier (90% similar). Estee Lauder Desirable (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Hug Me (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Peach Poppy (745) (P, $7.49) is lighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Mischievous Rose (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Sonic Truth (244) (P, $30.00) is lighter (85% similar). Givenchy Nude Guipure (106) (P, $36.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve (P, $35.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Naked (P, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). NYX French Kiss (P, $6.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Peach Blossom (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay XX Vintage Eyeshadows & Nail Colors for Holiday 2016

Urban Decay XX Vintage Eyeshadows & Nail Colors for Holiday 2016
Urban Decay XX Vintage Eyeshadows & Nail Colors for Holiday 2016


Eyeshadow was the third product we ever launched. Lip and nail shades came first, and Eyeshadow hit the line a year later—but it’s never taken a back seat. Eyeshadow was (and always has been) Wende’s passion project. After 20 years, we’re getting a little nostalgic for the early days. That’s why we created UD XX Vintage Eyeshadow—a throwback to our first Eyeshadow collection from 1997, which consisted of 19 shades that were WAY ahead of their time. While six of those original shades are still in our collection today, others have disappeared over the years. Now they’re back in one ultra-exclusive collection! Get the cult-favorite colors you know and love in our bestselling, intensely pigmented formula.

Still mourning the loss of our long-ago-discontinued nail shades like Plague, Pallor and Bruise? You’re in luck. We’ve brought you UD XX Vintage Nail Color. To mark our twentieth anniversary, we’re resurrecting ALL 12 of our original shades in this exclusive collection. We get TONS of requests from our fans to bring back our original nail shades, so these are bound to sell out in a hot minute. Our UD XX Vintage Nail Color collection is also ultra limited-edition—so once these shades are gone, they’re gone for good! (Don’t say we didn’t warn you.)

IT Cosmetics Velvet Luxe Brushes (304, 307, 314, 320, 322) Reviews & Photos

IT Cosmetics No. 304 Velvet Luxe Plush Foundation Brush ($38.00) is designed as a “flat but wide” brush for cream and liquid foundation application. It’s a medium-sized, dense, dome-shaped foundation brush made out of synthetic fibers. The brush head measured 33.5mm in width, 32.0mm in length, and 17.4mm in thickness with a handle length of 7.2 inches / 18.3 centimeters. IT’s Velvet Luxe range uses incredibly soft synthetic hairs that are as soft as high-end goat hair used by brands like Chikuhodo, Hakuhodo, etc. I liked this best with liquid, medium coverage or greater foundations with satin to luminous finishes, and it will fit in best with someone who tends to apply their foundation in patting and smooth downward (or upward) strokes rather than in circular, buffing motions.
The curved edge fits in well when maneuvering around the nose, underneath the eye, and around the mouth. Personally, I still preferred the No. 302 for liquid foundation.

MAC Spoiled Fabulous, Wild Extract, Time to Shine Lipsticks

MAC Spoiled Fabulous Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light, champagne gold with warm undertones and fine gold and larger gold sparkle. It had a noticeably gritty texture when applied directly to the lips, and the sparkle really clings to each other, which causes unevenness and lumpy bits of sparkle on the lips. The “color” seemed to slip into lip lines as well. This is a shade that I found difficult to apply on its own and get any measure of standalone wear out of it, as it always made my lips look rough and very textured. It would work better as a layering shade. It lasted for two and a half hours on me. MAC Tanarama (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC No Interruptions (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Liquid Lurex (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rory (LE, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC All I Want (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Whip (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Lame (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Altoum (LE, $35.00) is more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). MAC Free as a Butterfly (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
