Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of peachy shades. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” The lightest shade comes the closest to delivering a decent blush that misses them mark on the 24-hour wear time but isn’t so far off the mark from the other claims, but the darker shade is still a disappointment.

Chanel Perles et Fantaisies Illuminating Powder

Chanel Perles et Fantaisies Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a two-tone highlighter with a pale white matched with a light-medium, warm pink. The white shade is softer and seemed more pigmented, so it tended to dominate even when the two were mixed. I wish both shades were equally high in quality, but the pink shade leaves something to be desired. If you expect to only use it blended and prefer a lighter color overall, you may still enjoy the product. Both shades yield a smooth, luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize pores.

MAC Flamingo Park Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Flamingo Park Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a mix of springtime pastels and bold brights. It’s not perfect, but it still surprised me, as they went on fairly well with decent or better pigmentation and blended out without major issues. In general, I find MAC eyeshadows perform a little better applied to the eye than initially swatched. It’s probably one of the more interesting palettes/quads MAC has put out in awhile, as they’ve done quite a few neutral-like ones in recent memory. I think the majority of the issues I experienced with the shades (detailed below) will be solved by using primer. I wish Sushi Flower and Elegant Friend had been swapped out for better performing shades, as those are the two big duds in the palette (Naturally Fabulous builds really well, so it’s workable for most application styles).

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of copper and peach. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” As you might have guessed from the last three reviews, results were not impressive. The darker shade was sheer and difficult to blend on the skin, while the lighter shade was less firm in the pan and more powdery, so it was easier to blend but was still sheer. Neither shade made it in the realm of 24 hour wear. The two mixed together (just swirled with a brush) is better than either alone, but blending was still a pain and required an excessive amount of layers for it to show up for photos on my skin tone.
