Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lover Style Eye-Con No. 7 Shadow Palette
Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lover Style Eye-Con No. 7 Shadow Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lover Style Eye-Con No. 7 Shadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a mix of light to medium-dark neutrals in shades of pink, peach, and brown. It has a lot more mid-tone shades than your average palette; I think it could have benefited from another medium-dark or dark hued shade so that you could get more contrast out of this palette. It performed fairly well with the common issues being slightly shorter wear than average with some shades being more semi-opaque or prone to sheering out due to their textures.

The Lover #1 is described as a “matte baby pink.” It’s a brightened, pale pink with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a soft, smooth consistency that could be a little powdery to work with. This looks chalky on my medium skin tone, so it may not be the easiest shade for all skin tones to work with. It stayed on for seven and a half hours before creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The Lover #2 is described as a “sandy pink shimmer.” It’s a muted, light-medium peachy beige with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, but somewhat dry, texture that was prone to sheering out when applied and blended on the skin. It built-up well, and it seemed to “melt” on my lid so it didn’t look powdery or dry on. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

The Lover #3 is described as a “light caramel sheen.” It’s a light-medium peach with subtle golden shimmer over a mostly matte finish. This appears more matte than truly shimmery when applied to the skin. The texture has a silky feel to it, and it had semi-opaque color coverage. It showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

The Lover #4 is described as a “matte apricot-rose.” It’s a soft, light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was really soft and silky, though it tended to sheer out a bit when applied, while the pigmentation was mostly opaque. It wore well for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The Lover #5 is described as a “copper rose shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, buttery, and dense texture that was really easy to use and wore well for eight hours. This shade is incredibly dupable, though–including within two of the brand’s other palettes. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The Lover #6 is described as a “seashell pink sheen.” It’s a soft, light-medium rosy pink with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had decent color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that felt a little dry in the pan but seemed to look better once it was blended on the skin. It started to crease after seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The Lover #7 is described as a “matte cappuccino.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a very silky, finely-milled texture that was a smidgen powdery but blended really well on the skin. It lasted for eight hours on me. See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

The Spring 2015 Report Card:  The Best Products from Q1

There are so many products releasing each month that it can be hard to keep track of what was worth considering that I wanted to try putting together a quarterly overview that looks at the last three months of reviews with a best-of-the-quarter compilation. I’ve tried to group by formula when it makes sense to, and other times you’ll see specific shades or a collection. I’ve only included products that scored at least A- or higher (or else we’d be here all day!).

You can always browse all of my past reviews by rating and choose your threshold (or go diving for those F reviews) as well as view any Temptalia Recommends products. For a list of all my all-time favorites, see my Editor’s Choice Awards.

Clinique Cheek Pops
Clinique Cheek Pops are now available in eight new shades! You can check out the full roundup here, but they performed extremely well and in line with the original four released last year. All of the new shades rated A- or higher: Fig Pop (A+), Heather Pop (A-), Melon Pop (A-), Nude Pop (A), Pansy Pop (A-), Pink Pop (A+), Rosy Pop (A), Cola Pop (A+).

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer (A) is a fantastic, medium-to-full coverage concealer that covers evenly, smoothly, and wears long. I’d love to see the brand expand their shade range, as I have to mix two shades to get a good match (there are only four shades).

Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette includes three highlighters and three sculpting powders in a slim palette. The palette had really soft, silky textures, which made it easy to blend on the skin. It may be more or less useful depending on your contouring application and coloring as the palette runs warmer.

Kevyn Aucoin Medium The Sculpting Powder has an unbelievable texture that’s very soft, smooth, and blendable. The color is more taupe-like, which makes it one of my favorite hues for contouring. I wish they had more shades.

Marc Jacobs Blow (210) Le Marc Lip Creme
Marc Jacobs Blow (210) Le Marc Lip Creme

Marc Jacobs Blow (210) Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “dark berry velvet.” It’s a medium-dark, burgundy red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. Bite Beauty #001 (LE, $36.00) is darker. Bite Beauty Truffle (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned. Tom Ford Beauty Black Dahlia (10) (LE, $50.00) is more matte. NARS Bette (P, $32.00) is glossier. Maybelline Espresso Exposed (955) (P, $7.49) is darker. MAC Fixed on Drama (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, more matte. Marc Jacobs Beauty Saboteur (132) (P, $30.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Shame (P, $22.00) is darker. MAC Tribalist (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Diva (P, $16.00) is lighter, more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The new Le Marc Lip Creme formula is supposed to be a “rich, velvety, ultra-hydrating lipstick” with “vivid pigment” and “10-hour” wear. Sometimes I wonder how many people actually test a product before a brand makes a claim like long-wearing, because 10 hours is a very long time, so I’m genuinely curious how many people test and report back with such-and-such wear time before a brand makes a claim. It is a deeper, richer hue, which tend to last longer than a much lighter shade would, period, but it only lasted six hours for me. Blow is semi-opaque with a noticeable translucency where the natural lip color will come through. The formula is lightweight, lightly creamy, and glides on without tugging on the lips, though there is some unevenness. It was comfortable initially, but I found the formula to be lightly drying over time. The formula has a very, very subtle sweet floral scent, but I could barely detect it in the tube.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Hi-Fi Filter #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder
Marc Jacobs Beauty Hi-Fi Filter #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder

Marc Jacobs Beauty Hi-Fi Filter #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder ($49.00 for 0.62 oz.) includes a highlighter and contouring powder. The lighter shade is supposed to “subtly illuminate,” while the darker shade “offers sheer shadow to define.” There are three variations in the formula, and this appears to be the darkest of the three. The texture of both sides was incredibly finely-milled and smooth, while the highlighter was a smidgen powdery, neither looked powdery on the skin. The compact is incredibly large but thin, and the lid seemed extraordinarily thin as it tapered towards the edge, which made it seem almost flimsy along the edge (where it clasps together).

Highlighter is described as a “warm peach.” It’s a muted, light-medium yellowed peach with a matte finish. It’s a medium to buildable product with a soft, silky texture that gets a wee bit powdery if you’re not careful. My skin tone isn’t the best to showcase the highlighting shade, as it gets pretty lost on my skin tone (it’s more my skin tone than lighter or darker), unfortunately. The powder sat well on my cheek bones, though, and seemed to make the skin appear almost blurred. From what I could tell, it seemed to wear eight hours before breaking down. Dolce and Gabbana Eva (P, $51.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Contour is described as a “deep bronze.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle warm undertones and a satin finish. I wish the finish of the bronzer was also reflected in the highlighter, because it would give a very natural finish–it’s not shimmery, but it looks like skin without being totally flat/matte. The texture was silky, smooth, and very blendable on the skin without being powdery. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me. MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is more matte, grayer. MAC Scone (LE, $25.00) is rosier. Tarte Park Ave. Princess (P, $29.00) is similar. MAC Tan Tint (LE, $29.50) is darker, cream. Benefit Hoola (P, $28.00) is slightly less warm-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
