Unfiltered II

NARS Unfiltered II Cheek Palette ($59.00 for 0.72 oz.) includes six shades of blushes with a mix of finishes (matte, high shimmer, and satin) and colors (pinks, peaches, and plum). I think that the shades in this palette are a little more dupable compared to Unfiltered I, and they run light to medium (though one shade is deeper) and will show up better on fair to medium complexions. Overall, the palette was pigmented, long-wearing, and fairly blendable.

Palette Ors Audacieux

Givenchy Palette Ors Audacieux Eye Shadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday quartet that features four, shimmering shades. The formula is a wet/dry one, where wet application increases the “density and brilliance.” For the most part, I did not notice significant differences between dry and damp application, except with the third one, which had the most glitter. I could see this working best with other shades in one’s stash, like a few matte shades, perhaps a black or deep brown for more contrast, as it could use more contrast for greater versatility.

La Vie En Rose

Catrice La Vie En Rose Illuminating Blush ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a soft, satiny sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was very blendable but did sheer out a bit on the skin. I expect that lighter skin tones will find it easy to work with it, as the coverage was forgiving, but it may not have enough depth for deeper skin tones (I hope Catrice will consider adding deeper shades to their range!).

The Illuminating Blush formula is supposed to have a mix of “subtle shimmer” and a “light pearl” that adds color and a “soft glow” to the cheeks. Of the three shades that exist, I felt like this one was truest to that description, as the finish was soft, satiny but had a visible sheen overall. The blush started to fade after seven and a half hours on me.

Just Peachy

ColourPop Just Peachy Liquid Lipstick Trio ($15.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) includes three shades of liquid lipstick–two are in the Ultra Matte formula and one is in the Ultra Satin formula. The Ultra Mattes were better than some of the recent releases I’ve tried, but Instigator did have slight “cracking” when I smiled. What was fun about this set was it went to show just how different products can look outside of their tubes–they almost looked alike in the group shot but on, the differences are magnified.

Slow Burn

Marc Jacobs Beauty Slow Burn Marc Liquid Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is medium-dark, rosy mauve with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture had a light-medium consistency that spread well across the lips but did not feel too thin or too clingy on. It lasted for five and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating over time.

The formula is supposed to be hydrating, long-wearing, and have full coverage. If you like the idea of liquid lipstick but prefer more of a satin finish and something more forgiving on the lips, then this formula is going to be more suitable for you. If you prefer a flat, matte finish that’s transfer-proof, then this formula will not meet your needs. It is, literally, a liquid version of lipstick–it feels like a lightweight lipstick with light to moderate slip that lasts four to six hours.
