Make Up For Ever #330 HD Blush
Make Up For Ever #330 HD Blush

Make Up For Ever #330 HD Blush ($26.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “rosy plum.” It is a medium pink with moderately cool, bluish undertones and has a satin finish. Sleek MakeUP Macaroon (P) is brighter. MAC Formal (LE) is a powder. Urban Decay Temper (LE) is brighter, pinker, powder. Bobbi Brown Summer Pink (LE, $26.00) is darker. Chanel Revelation (63) (P, $38.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

It is new for spring and comes in sixteen different shades. The new formula is supposed to be blendable, long-wearing, comfortable to wear, and have a satin finish. The texture is lightly creamy with some slip, and it takes about thirty seconds before it starts to really melt and transition into a more powder-like texture and feel. The end result is very similar to Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel, but the initial texture and feel are noticeably different, as Chanel feels like a powder almost as soon as it hits the skin. I liked using stippling brushes with the formula, as it delivered good color coverage and still offered blendability and evenness. I also found fingertips were good for working the color onto the skin (I usually get the initial amount on using a brush). #330 was one of two shades that I tried, and it was really easy to apply and blend onto the skin. It looked even, had a satin-matte finish, and didn’t cling-to or exacerbate dry patches. It had good, buildable coverage that could be sheered out or applied at true-to-pan intensity. The color wore well for almost eight hours before fading.

With Valentine’s Day just a couple of weeks away, it seemed only appropriate to make a list of pretty in pink shades.  Whether you like pink on your lips, tips, cheeks, or eyes, I hope that you’ll find at least one shade to drool over. :)

You know what I look forward to? Seeing some radiantorchideyes eyeliners. Those are few and far between, particularly for permanently available options. I also look forward to seeing some intensely pigmented, radiantorchideyes-hued matte eyeshadows–or at least, that’s my hope.

What are your favorite orchid-hued eyeshadows/eyeliners?

Not everything released in the past year was impressive, and some products were downright disappointing! When I worked on compiling this list, I thought about cringe-worthy products; ones that I can’t wrap my head around at all. These are products that truly disappointed me with their performance and quality.  Every single brand mentioned below has products I love but not every product can be a winner.

What were the most disappointing beauty products you tried this past year?

One of my favorite colors of all-time is emerald green. It has so much depth, and I love that it can be cooler or warmer and be so, so different.

  1. Zoya Logan — a very cool-toned, glittering emerald green polish
  2. Milani Green Safari — an amazing emerald green cream eyeshadow that can be used as eyeliner or as a base
  3. Illamasqua Violate — because I can’t have a list that doesn’t include an emerald green lip color
  4. Zoya Holly — vibrant, warm-toned emerald green
  5. Make Up For Ever #80 — a smoky, slightly blackened emerald green eyeshadow

Have you worn any emerald green beauty products before?
