Enchanted

Anastasia Enchanted Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a deep, violet purple with cooler undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was rather dense, almost thick compared to most of the brand’s formulas (including other frost/metallic shades) but is incredibly pigmented. I would recommend using a flat synthetic brush or medium dome-shaped eyeshadow brush (I used MAC’s 239 just fine with this). If you’re familiar with the more recent silicone-heavy eyeshadows that have released lately, you’ll enjoy the formula as it has that same creamy, smooth feel. The eyeshadow adhered beautifully to bare skin, still blended out, and stayed on for nine hours on me.

The new single eyeshadows will be available at online retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd but are available through Anastasia now.

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palettes for Summer 2017

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette for Summer 2017
Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette for Summer 2017

Inspired by Huda Kattan’s hack of layering oil with powder highlighter to amplify her glow, this palette is packed with two different textures. The Melted Strobe, a pearlescent creamy formula, is enriched with karite butter for a flawless, lit-from-within canvas to layer on powders. The three, light-catching pressed pearls are staggered in complimentary tones to give you sculpted, 3D radiance. With effortless blendability and layering power, this palette lets you build and sculpt your highlight to a desired level of radiance—from subtle, natural radiance to an all-over glow.

Bobbi Brown Island Glow Stick ($36.00 for 0.31 oz.) is medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a dewy finish on the skin, as the formula never dried down. While the finish was always luminous, it had terrible wear–on its own, it had slid around noticeably on my skin after four hours of wear. When I tried it over my liquid foundation, it moved my base around a ton and created a lot of patchiness within two hours of wear. It had sheer coverage, and the pearl in this particular shade made it look spectacular but just required so much maintenance, care, and touch-ups.

It’s supposed to be a “creamy, lightweight highlighter” with “sheer” coverage that gives “an instant, sun-kissed glow that lasts all day.” The formula was very emollient with a lot of slip and wetness; it never dried down and always felt slick on the skin. All of the shades I tried were sheer, and they were not buildable, so several shades ended up looking very similar on my skin tone (but may look more or less different on other skin tones/undertones). The emollient feel of the formula did not play well with products (primers, cream/powder/liquid foundations or blushes).

Noir Petrole (812)

Chanel Noir Petrole (812) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, smoky brown with subtle, warm undertones and barely-there red pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage. The consistency was smooth, thin but not too thin, and dried down quickly. I found it hard to blend the color out evenly and felt like it was best used as a base rather than a standalone eyeshadow as it was hard to get it to appear even at less than opaque coverage. It was still going strong after twelve hours of wear.

Chanel describes the formula as a “smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly” and is “long-wearing.” There are eight shades (view swatches) released with one (Obscur) being limited edition. Overall, the consistency has moderate slip–emollient but not greasy or overly wet in feel–and feels more like a traditional cream eyeshadow than Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombres. They go on as a thin layer but have fairly good pigmentation. The formula dried down quite quickly leaving little time for blending or diffusing edges, even when working one eye at a time, which was where I struggled. I think some of them tended to work better as lid colors and using something else for a more diffused/blended out crease color. They did, however, wear impeccably for as long as fourteen hours on me–no creasing, fading, or flaking.

Guerlain Ultra Shine Terracotta Ultra Bronzing Powder ($61.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a fine, golden pearl. It had sheer coverage, which was buildable to medium coverage. It’s a new, limited edition powder bronzer that’s supposed to have “fine mother-of-pearl” in it that “imitates the dazzling light of skin that has been left silky by the sun.” The consistency was soft but powdery, and I suspect that the texture played a role in the pigmentation of the product.

For someone with a fair to light-medium skin tone, I think it would work well as a warm, golden bronzer but would get lost on other skin tones (Guerlain’s Terracotta range does have one of the wider shade ranges for bronzers, so look there if you are deeper!). If you’ve sensitive to scents or prefer your powders unscented, this might not be for me, as the powder is heavily scented with “freesia and orange blossom notes” that are “blended into tonka bean and vanilla notes.” I did not feel like the texture of the bronzer as as finely-milled or as smooth as past iterations in the Terracotta range, though it did blend out easily and sat well on the skin. The bronzer stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading.
