Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Cheek & Lip Makeup Bag Set ($38.00 for 0.29 oz.) includes a lipstick, liquid lipstick, blush, and highlighting powder that come with a heart-shaped makeup bag. The bag itself is fairly small and very flat, so it was hard to use.

Sublimate

Tom Ford Beauty Sublimate Shade & Illuminate Cheeks ($80.00 for 0.49 oz.) includes a cream highlighter and cream blush. The formula is touted as “super sheer,” and that’s what you get: incredibly sheer, almost translucent color. Both shades are sheer and barely-there with a dewy finish that never sets or dries down, and as a result, the wear was between three to four hours. Despite never setting, they didn’t feel tacky, just a little emollient to the touch, and can handle a powder being patted on top (though the dewiness went away completely). I wish they lasted longer, but as they have such short wear, it’s not a very practical product for most. I think this will be best for someone who doesn’t need their makeup to last long, has drier skin (perhaps it would last longer), and/or wants a sheerer base for their powder blushes.

Betty Boop Red

MAC Betty Boop Red Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium red with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy but not too emollient, and comfortable to wear. Though it was listed as a matte finish on the packaging, it did not read matte on me until after an hour and a half of wear. The color wore well for over six hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

This lipstick launches online today (2/14).

Apple of My Eye

ColourPop Apple of My Eye Pressed Powder Eye Duo ($10.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains a light-medium pink and a rich, magenta purple. The two shades complemented each other well, as they could greate a nice gradient while still offering nice contrast between the two shades. Both shades were pigmented, easy to blend, and wore fairly well. This duo is limited edition and part of the brand’s Valentine’s Day collection, but ColourPop is releasing them as singles today.

Goody Two-Shoes

ColourPop Goody Two-Shoes Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a dark, charcoal gray with warmer, brown undertones and cooler pearl–it read cooler overall. The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, blendable texture that adhered evenly to the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Kevyn Aucoin Ibiza The Neo Limelight ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) is a mega-sized cheek palette with three shades of highlighter that form a gradient from pale gold to light lavender to lavender. When mixed together, the effect was a light-medium lavender with a subtle warmth and a luminous finish. Each shade was wide enough to be worn alone, though there’s no distinct beginning and end for the shades. The consistency of the palette was fairly smooth, soft, and blendable, while the pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to opaque. The only shade I had trouble with was the darker lavender, which was drier in feel and had buildable coverage. There was a bit of excess powder that kicked up in the pan, but it did not read powdery or dry on the skin. The effect was moderate to high in shine, so the palette would work best for someone who likes a stronger highlighter/highlighting blush.
