Sahara

Kevyn Aucoin Sahara The Neo Highlighter ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) is supposed to contain the brand’s famous Celestial Powder in three shades: Candlelight, Starlight, and Sunlight. The formula definitely doesn’t feel quite as finely-milled or as silky as the standalone Celestial Powders, but the bigger difference is that Candlelight and Starlight are both much, much warmer and less luminous in this palette (Sunlight was very similar). The texture not being quite as luxurious as the individual shades was only something I noticed by feel, not so much when I applied it to the skin, blended out the powders, and wore them. If you like warmer, more bronzy highlighters, you’ll probably enjoy this compact.

Bois de Rose

Estee Lauder Bois de Rose Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) isa medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a smooth, creamy texture that adhered well to lips and was very, very lightly tacky in feel (more like the feel that the lipstick wasn’t going to slide around on me than true tackiness). The coverage was even and lasted for five hours on me while hydrating my lips.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick formula is supposed to have “high-intensity color” that hydrate lips with six-hour wear. It’s one of my favorite formulas, as the majority of the shades are creamy, smooth, pigmented, hydrating, and long-wearing (four to seven hours). They are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Moonbeam

NYX Moonbeam Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a peachy gold with warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. The finish had slightly larger sparkles to it, though it was still a more moderate highlighter once blended out on the skin. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two or three layers–it was best built up by letting each layer dry first. The consistency was blendable, spreadable, but thin and water-like so it felt cool on the skin initially. The highlighter wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

The Away We Glow formula is a liquid highlighter that has buildable coverage “from soft to intense.” The brand recommends to “dab and blend” on skin for “irresistible illumination.” There are nine shades available, and the shimmer varied from shade to shade: fine pearl to chunkier sparkle. The formula has a watery, thin feel from the tube, and I liked getting a bit on the back of my hand and then dabbing with fingertips or a stippling brush onto the cheeks and high planes of the face for highlighting. It did dry down after a minute or so, and the wear ranged from seven to eight hours.
