Make Up For Ever C208, C209, C210 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C208 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was comfortable to wear, as it was lightly creamy but not overly slippery, so it sat well on the lips and didn’t slide around. This shade wore well for over six hours on me and left a stain behind. The formula was nicely hydrating. Smashbox Inspiration (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Romy (462) (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Bellini (LE, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Ultramarine Pink (LE, $30.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Velvet Underground (P, $32.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar).

MAC Cherry Topped & Nice Energy Eyeshadows

MAC Cherry Topped Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkly, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation that applied fairly well, but the glittery bits felt grainy and loosened from the base color both in the pan as well as when I blended out the color on the lid. It wore well for eight hours with some fallout. Guerlain Crazy Paris #4 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sugarpill Decora (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Buxom Party Girl (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Cake (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Woodstock (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Backlash (LE, $19.00) is cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Bright Eyes (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Totally Fetch (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar).

Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette

Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a six-pan blush palette that is the same size (and contains the same amount) as the eyeshadow palettes. It comes in a black plastic compact with a clear lid. Each palette is divided into two families and is “scaled into three levels of cheek color, ideal for the fairest to deep skin tones.” The powder blush formula is supposed to “apply seamlessly” and have “sheer to fuller coverage.” In general, the blush applied better with a light-to-moderately dense brush, light hand, and built-up in layers rather than immediately packed into place. The texture was smooth but dusty, sometimes powdery, and kicked up excess in the pan, so with some of the richer shades, it was easy to over-apply. The formula played better with my skin when it was normal, whereas drier areas had some trouble with the product adhering to the skin for some shades but not all (if you normally wear a cream or liquid base, you should be good to go). The majority of the blushes in the palettes are mostly matte, and they look very smooth on the skin–they actually seemed to hide texture and pores, which was interesting. Most of the shades lasted at least eight hours on my normal-to-dry skin with some lasting as long as nine and a half hours.
