Reader Rashmi requested a top five of burgundy lipsticks, and I have to say, finding a really lovely burgundy lip color that’s permanent is difficult. It seems to be a favorite hue to go-to for limited edition collections, though.

  1. OCC Black Dahlia — is a deep, dark burgundy with a hint of brown that lasts and lasts
  2. MAC Endless Drama — a deepened, semi-opaque burgundy red with a soft, frosted finish
  3. Giorgio Armani #408 — is a muted, reddish burgundy with a pearly shimmer
  4. Buxom Menace — a brightened, berry-ish burgundy with a shimmery finish
  5. Laura Mercier Merlot — a lightened, muted berry-burgundy with a natural finish

What’s your favorite burgundy lipstick?

bareMinerals Luminous Hydrating Body Cream
bareMinerals Luminous Hydrating Body Cream

bareMinerals Luminous Hydrating Body Cream ($35.00 for 6.0 oz.) is a shimmering body cream that’s supposed to be “ultrarich, non-greasy.” It’s a thick body cream–somewhere between a more typical body butter and a whipped body butter, as it’s fairly solid and isn’t going to drip out of the jar, but it spreads well and doesn’t have to be scraped out by a legitimate block o’ body butter.

I’m a big fan of bareMinerals’ recent skincare range, so I was eager to try this body cream, which apparently also came out last year for the holidays–it’s limited edition again this year–but I was surprised to see it was available for $28 last year and has been bumped up to $35 for this year. SkinStore is still selling it for $28, though, if it’s something you wanted to try. I’m not a fan of limited edition skincare products (why!!!), and the significant increase in price is definitely off-putting. I do like the product; it’s a good, solid body cream. It’s not the very, very best I’ve ever tried, but it’s nice. Despite its thick, rich consistency, it absorbs within a minute or less. It spreads easily across the skin, and a little goes a long way. It leaves skin feeling softer, more hydrated but not greasy or oily.For normal-to-dry skin, I think it should provide an appropriate level of hydrating, as it was perfect for my arms, but on my desert-like legs, it didn’t fully hydrate.  It has a slightly earthy, herbal scent, but it’s not too strong, that is similar to the rest of the bareMinerals’ skincare range.  There is a fine gold shimmer that sits on the skin after application, but it will rub off at times (I sat cross-legged, and I saw the heel of my slipper was dazzling!). It’s a nice veil of shimmer–not sparkle–that would work well on decolletage and legs for the holidays.

bareMinerals The Many Splendors Face & Body Luminizer
bareMinerals The Many Splendors Face & Body Luminizer

bareMinerals The Many Splendors Face & Body Luminizer ($45.00 for 1.10 oz.) is composed of three shades that you could use alone or together, but the compact is quite large, so each section easily can be used individually (though probably not with the brush included with the set!). There is a very large powder brush that comes with the compact, and it’s actually incredibly soft, dense, and lovely to use (I was worried, as last time I tried brushes from bareMinerals, they were very scratchy). However, for all those good characteristics, it’s massive and quite long, so it’s almost floppy. It provides a very dense and heavy-handed application. The brush is nice on its own, but I didn’t love it with this particular product. It’s a mega-sized powder–can’t imagine running out of it any time soon!–and if you use highlighters or bronzers on decolletage or the body, it would go a long way.  The quality of the powders is okay; the peachy shade was oddly under-pigmented, while the bronzer was very pigmented and easy to blend.

The Many Splendors #1 is a pale, gold-shimmered beige. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was soft and finely-milled. I noticed, however, that applied, it did somewhat emphasize pores. It wore for seven hours. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is warmer. theBalm Mary Lou-manizer (P, $24.00) is similar. NARS Albatross (P, $29.00) is very, very similar. See comparison swatches.

The Many Splendors #2 is a warm-toned, peachy-pink with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. This one had so-so color payoff–it was unusually difficult to get pigmentation out of it, even though it seemed soft to the touch. When applied, it did slightly emphasize pores and wore for seven and a half hours. On very fair skin, this could work as a blusher, but on my medium complexion, it worked out more as a highlighter with a smidgen of color. MAC Talk of the Town (LE, $25.00) is darker. NARS Sex Appeal (P, $29.00) is more matte. MAC Amber Glow (LE, $25.00) is similar. Le Metier de Beaute Whisper (P, $30.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

The Many Splendors #3 is a medium-dark, orange-brown with a deep, orange-gold frosted sheen. It had excellent color payoff, and it was the best performing shade within the compact. It wore for eight hours well, though it did slightly emphasize pores and imperfections. Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P) is darker. Wet ‘n’ Wild Bikini Contest (P, $3.99) is less shimmery. Disney by Sephora Golden Sands (LE, $55.00) is browner. See comparison swatches.

bareMinerals Glamour Now Holiday 2013 Collection
bareMinerals Glamour Now Holiday 2013 Collection

bareMinerals Glamour Now Holiday 2013 Collection ($49.98 today only, regularly $61.00) has a lot of good things going for it. The best product is definitely the eyeshadow quad, which is good across the board. The luminizer is nice but does somewhat emphasize pores and didn’t wear as well as I’d like it to. The blush wore well for eight hours, felt soft and blendable, and had good color payoff. The finishing powder was just so-so; didn’t knock it out of the park as far as smoothing prowess went. The lipgloss is sheer, non-sticky, and then disappeared before the two-hour mark. I was extremely disappointed in the two brushes, as they were very scratchy and rough against the skin.

The Main Event (0.17 oz.) is a full-sized eyeshadow palette that features four shades. bareMinerals’ Ready eyeshadow formula is one of my favorites, and this quad was no exception–nicely pigmented, buttery, soft and smooth textures, and long-wear–ten hours without fading or creasing (no primer!).

Celebrate is a pearly, light beige with soft, warm undertones. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was so soft and buttery. Urban Decay Broken (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Sahara Dust (LE, $15.00) is a touch darker. MAC Shroom (P, $15.00) is more pearly. See comparison swatches.

Ball Gown is a warm peach with a frosted, champagne finish. The pigmentation was really rich and opaque, while the eyeshadow felt silky-smooth and blended easily. Too Faced Cheers! (LE) is similar. Disney by Sephora Splendid (LE) is lighter. MAC Summer Haze (LE, $21.00) is browner. bareMinerals Custom Made (LE) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Cheers (V2) is a medum-dark, taupe with subtle warm undertones and a pale champagne shimmer. The texture was soft and smooth, while it had good color payoff. This shouldn’t be confused with Cheers found in The After Party, as the shades are very different (and I wish they hadn’t re-used the name). Anastasia Antique (LE) is darker. Urban Decay Nameless (LE, $18.00) is darker, less shimmery. Urban Decay Vaporize (LE, $18.00) is similar, more sparkly. Urban Decay Derailed (LE, $18.00) is slightly cooler-toned. Dior Millenium (381) (P, $30.00) is a cream product. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #7 (P) is similar. Disney by Sephora Kill Joy (LE) is also similar–cooler-toned. theBalm Selfish (P, $16.00) is similar. NARS Grand Palais #1 (LE, $24.00) is similar. MAC Hazy Day (LE, $15.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Stiletto is a deepened, warm-toned burgundy with multi-colored micro-shimmer. It’s a shade that may have shimmer but predominantly looks and acts like a matte finish when applied. It’s very pigmented, but it has a very soft, almost powdery, texture, so it sheers out somewhat when applied in a sweeping motion. Makeup Geek Last Dance (P, $5.99) is slightly more shimmery. Too Faced Soiree (LE) is darker. Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

The Magic Moment (0.16 oz.) is a light-medium, peach with a hint of pink and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft and finely-milled. On the skin, it blended well, but it did somewhat emphasize pores. On fair skin, it may work as a blush and highlighter, but on my medium complexion, it was mostly a highlighter. It wore well for seven and a half hours and looked somewhat faded after just over eight hours of wear. It’s about half the size of a full-sized Luminizer (which is 0.30 oz.). MAC Talk of the Town (LE, $25.00) is less warm-toned. MAC Amber Glow (LE, $25.00) is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Definitely Defined (LE, $30.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Brightening Pearl Perfect Light Mineral Veil (0.23 oz.) is a pale, pink-tinged beige with moderate sparkle. For reference, the swatch shows a very, very heavy application so you can get a visual of what it looks like. I wore the product dusted all over the face in the full face photo to see an actual application of the product. It slightly mattifies and noticeably smooths out the skin’s natural appearance. It seemed a wee bit powdery all over, though I did not notice the sparkle, and I was worried I would. It didn’t seem to affect the longevity of my foundation.

Glamour (0.03 oz.) is a light-medium, neutral-cool pink with a satin-matte finish. The texture was soft and very finely-milled. The blush applied with good color payoff and blended easily on the skin. This is full-sized. It lasted for eight hours when I tested it. MAC Formal (LE) is similar. theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is slightly darker. MAC Subtle Breeze (LE, $25.00) is also darker. Chanel Rose Initiale (P, $43.00) is brighter. Bobbi Brown Pink Rose (P, $26.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Dazzler (0.15 oz.) is a muted tangerine with gold sparkle. On lips, it’s sheer and adds warmth, glossiness, and sparkle. In all the full face photos showcasing the cheek products, I mixed this with Glamour blush for more color. This is full-sized. It wore for over an hour and a half but didn’t make it to two hours. It had a vanilla-mint scent and did tingle a bit (like mint often does) when applied–not painful but noticeable for the first few minutes. Chanel Envolee (427) (LE, $29.50) is less shimmery. Chanel Zephyr (377) (LE, $29.50) is lighter. Revlon Peach (P, $7.49) is more shimmery. MAC Sublime Shine (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Paper Lantern (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Double Happiness (LE, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Not included in the ratings are: Smoke & Define Eyeliner (kohl wore well for 8 hours, could have been creamier/smoother to apply; liquid eyeliner didn’t smudge, fade, or flake over 8 hours) and Lash Domination Mascara (some lengthening, thickening, didn’t flake or smudge). The brushes were awful–I wouldn’t recommend using them at all, and they’re something I would just throw away. The eye brush was horrific; so, so scratchy and rough against the skin, let alone the more delicate and sensitive eye area! The large face brush was also quite scratchy, but it also shed a lot when I was just brushing it against my arm. These were some of the more painfully scratchy brushes that I’ve come across recently!
