The formula is supposed to apply like a gloss but dry to “an ultra-matte, opaque finish” that is “never dry, shriveled, or cracked” that should “last for hours.” In my experience, the formula is hit or miss–some shades apply well and look decent after dry down while others flaked or “cracked” as soon as I moved my lips. This one was more forgiving with mostly opaque color coverage that dried down fairly evenly. The texture was matte after a few minutes, but it didn’t fully dry down for about a half hour–if I pressed my lips together, there was a slight tackiness but no color lifted off, thankfully. It was moderately drying after six hours of wear, though the color lasted closer to eight hours overall.

Too Faced The Chocolate Shop Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced The Chocolate Shop Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced The Chocolate Shop Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced The Chocolate Shop Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 1.41 oz.) includes 21 eyeshadows, one highlighter, one bronzer, one blush, one eyeshadow primer, one liquid lipstick, and a deluxe-sized mascara. You might have guessed by this point that this palette was underwhelming, both because it’s taken me this long to review and based on recent reviews on Too Faced’s holiday palettes. It is, indeed, another miss by the brand.

Dessert’s On Me is a very light white with warmer undertones and a frosted shimmer. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was thin and dusty, which resulted in it sheering out easily while the shimmer pulled away from the base color. It wore well for six hours. LORAC Snow (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Yves (P) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Lunar Lights (P) is darker, more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Antique White (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). NARS Flowers 1 #1 (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Disney by Sephora Ball Gown (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Unicorn (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Skulls (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Indulge is a light, golden pewter with warmer undertones and a metallic finish. This had some glitter, which did not seem to stick around for long, while the rest of the consistency had an almost wet-like feel to it and felt smooth to the touch. It blended out fairly well and had semi-opaque coverage. On me, it started to fade after seven hours of wear. LORAC French Toast (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Lancome Joie (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Hourglass Graphite #5 (P) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Rock Candy (P) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE) is darker (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #4 (LE) is darker (85% similar). Coloured Raine Glamour (P, $6.99) is brighter (85% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cookie Dough is a light brown with warm undertones and gold sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkle did not bind with the base color, and the texture of the base ridiculously powdery, even though it felt silky and finely-milled. This was hard to apply to bare skin, and even over primer, it was hard to build up and keep in place. It wore for five hours. Stila Heart (P) is darker (95% similar). Becca Ombre Rouge #1 (P) is lighter, less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Hanky Panky (P, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). Burberry Pale Nude #2 (P, $29.00) is darker (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Raspberry Rose is a very light pink with a strong, white base and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a dusty consistency that was prone to sheering out. This shade started to fade after five and a half hours of wear. Too Faced Candy Cane (LE, $16.00) is brighter (95% similar). L'Oreal Mademoiselle Pink (P, $5.99) is warmer, brighter (95% similar). LORAC Jelly Donut (LE, $19.00) is brighter (95% similar). Tarte Wrapped Up (LE) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Kitten (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sugared Raisin is a light-medium mauve with warm undertones and flecks of copper sparkle over a more metallic finish. Too Faced seems to release a shade like this at least once a year, and they all look nearly the same–it just seems to show how important themes and names are compared to quality. The consistency was looser in the pan, which resulted in a lot of fall out during application as well as during wear. It started to crease on me after six hours. LORAC Soft Plum (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC In My Element (P, $16.00) is warmer, less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced The Strip (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guilt-Free is a light-medium gray-leaning taupe with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was so soft that it turned powdery and looser, so it had a tendency to sheer and dust away as it was blended. If used over a primer, it was better, though all of the issues were not fully resolved. It lasted for six hours on me. NARS Namibia (P, $25.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Harley (P, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 11 (LE) is darker (90% similar). Zoeva Gallery (P) is darker (90% similar).

Tootsie is a deep, red-toned brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was mostly opaque, while the texture was a bit thin and dusty, but it was workable overall.

Gingerdoodle is a light-medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was looser in the pan, which made the eyeshadow sheer out and look drier on the skin.

Toffee Crunch is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It was incredibly powdery, and it seemed to come away almost in chunks. It had sheer coverage, partially owed to the fact that almost none of it wanted to stick to skin in the first place. I noticed fading after six hours.

Jingle Berry is a bright, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a pearly sheen. It was mostly opaque applied on bare skin, but it was buildable over a primer.

Chocolate Soleil is a medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. I have so many versions of Chocolate Soleil, and I’m always surprised the brand can’t seem to make them consistent.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry is a bright, medium pink with cool, bluish undertones and a pearly sheen. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, while the consistency was soft, just a touch dusty, but was blendable and easy to apply to the cheeks. It did seem to darken and warm up against my skin, though. It lasted for eight hours before fading. MAC Pink Tea (LE, $22.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked on the Run Blush (-) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar).

Best Blushes | Holiday 2016 Gift Guide

Best Blushes | Holiday 2016 Gift Guide

It’s that time of the year again:  holiday gift guides aplenty!  This year, I’ve broken out my gift guides into best of selections for blush, eyeshadow, highlighter, lipstick, lipgloss, palettes, and brushes.  These guides feature permanent formulas so that they can be useful anytime during the holiday season or even into next year.  For limited edition holiday products, you can check out our list of the top 50 highest-rated holiday products, which updates as I post more reviews for holiday products.  I hope you find this list of top performing blush formulas useful 🙂

Tom Ford Cheek Color

Tom Ford Cheek Color

Tom Ford Cheek Color ($60.00 for 0.28 oz.) has been a go-to blush formula for me since I first tried it many years ago. As time has passed, I have tried many more blush formulas from brands, but I still go back to this one frequently. I keep a few of my favorite shades (Love Lust, Ravish, Wicked) in my go-to drawer, where I keep products I want to wear again and again (when I’m not testing something!). The formula is soft, moderately dense, and smooth, which results in good pigmentation, a satin to pearly sheen, and easy application–plus, they wear long on me (over eight hours).

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Blush

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a powder blush with medium, buildable coverage and a more satin-to-luminous finish. I like how the range includes a mix of more “wearable” neutrals along with brighter pops of color, so it’s a versatile range that can work for many skin tones. Some of my favorite shades are Rapture, TMI, Fetish, and Crush.

Too Faced Grand Hotel Café Palettes

Too Faced Grand Hotel Café Palettes
Too Faced Grand Hotel Café Palettes

Too Faced Grand Hotel Café Palettes ($49.00 for 1.46 oz.) includes 18 eyeshadows, two blushes, one bronzer, and a deluxe sized mascara. While I don’t always have great luck with Too Faced’s eyeshadow formula (I have found it to be thinner and dustier, so it tends to require primer to perform well), I found this set of palettes to be particularly disheartening. I feel like this set is why people have dismissed holiday palettes more this year compared to previous years; it is everything wrong with holiday: an intense focus on packaging and presentation and seemingly little to no focus on actual product quality and consistency. There were many shades that were very sheer, dusty, or dry, and only a handful of shades were decent. Even two of the three cheek colors had a clumpy, powdery consistency that was just really surprising–in the worst of ways–and sealed the deal on this being a total disappointment.

Peppermint Cream is a bright white with a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage with a light, dusty texture (though smooth) that lasted for six hours before fading.

Christmas Blend is a medium-dark peach with warm, brown undertones and a sparkling finish. It had sheer coverage with a dry, dusty, and chunky texture that was a total pain to use as it did not apply to bare skin (or even over regular primer). It lasted for four hours–if that–on me.

Peppermint Mocha is a dark brown with warm,r ed undertones and a mostly matte finish, though there were visible sparkles that sat on top and blended away.

Santa Baby is a bright pop of medium pink with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It was very chalky, powdery in the pan, and tended to clump on the brush.

Too Faced Merry Macarons Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Merry Macarons Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced Merry Macarons Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Merry Macarons Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.64 oz.) includes 12 eyeshadows in a mix of warmer neutrals with a pop of purple and plum. The presentation is very gift-worthy, as it opens with a wintry scene that could definitely be displayed (assuming it was to your taste), though it obviously is a lot of excessive packaging if you only intend to keep the palette itself! Luckily, the bulk is separated, so the cardboard palette itself is slim and travel-friendly. There is no mirror on the interior, which is worth noting but may not be a deal-breaker. The palette also included a deluxe sized Better Than Sex Mascara. Like all of the brand’s palette offerings this year, it is scented, and this particular palette is vanilla-scented–noticeable when open but I could not detect the scent after applying. The palette was decent–pigmented, blendable, not too challenging to use–but it is going to be a better fit for someone who has not already indulged in past neutral palettes and likes more sparkly shades, as four of the shimmery shades have chunky sparkle in them.

A note on the size… it’s actually a little confusing, as the box says that each eyeshadow is 1.11g/0.03 oz. with a total net weight of 13.33g/0.47 oz. — the total weight in grams is correct, but the weight in ounces doesn’t make sense, as it should be 0.36 oz. Based on the gram weight for each shade, the corresponding conversion into ounces is actually 0.03915 oz., which results in 0.47 oz. total weight. I am not sure why it was rounded down!

Coconut is a light beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t too powdery or too firm in the pan. I felt like it sheered out a bit easily on the skin, though, so a primer would help it stay more opaque if desired. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Banana Cream is a medium-dark, coppery bronze with warm undertones and a sparkly, metallic finish. It had larger, chunkier sparkle in it, which had some fall out during application, but the texture was also a bit denser so it supported more of the sparkle within the base.

Almond Mocha is a dark brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a really soft, silky texture, which made it dustier and kicked up an excess amount of product in the pan, but it was very blendable and forgiving on the eye–you’ll need to build up the coverage, though, if you want more than medium coverage. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours on me. bareMinerals Get Ahead (LE) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Ground Brown (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Champagne Rose is a very light gold with a hint of pink and a frosted, sparkly finish. The consistency was drier and had a tendency to look uneven/patchy applied, though the lighter color against my skin tone (in particular) made it less noticeable than it may be on other skin tones. It is the type of product that would benefit from an adhesive base, like the brand’s own Glitter Insurance. This shade started to crease after seven hours of wear. MAC Exquisite Ego #1 (LE, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Stila Nude Shimmer (LE, $18.00) is warmer (95% similar). Natasha Denona Golden Beige (52M) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Mint Chocolate is a muted, medium-dark purply taupe with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture. It was a bit dusty, but it built up better than anticipated and didn’t look dry on the skin. The eyeshadow wore for just over seven hours on me. Tarte Misty Mauve (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

Chocolate Raspberry is a dark, plummy purple with warmer undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was on the drier side, so the powder felt looser with more noticeable shimmer/sparkle to it. It applied decently to the lid, though it had a more faded quality to it and lacked some of the richness it had in the pan. The color wore for just over seven hours on me.

Praline is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It had a softer, slightly drier texture that felt a little looser and chunkier overall. It applied decently, but it would work better with a primer or even a damp brush, which would give it a smoother look on the skin. This shade started to fade noticeably after seven and a half hours of wear. bareMinerals Surreal (P) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Honey Lavender is a light-medium lavender with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. Again, it had a chunkier sparkle that was loosened from the base color, so there was some fall out during application as well as later on during wear; it is a shade that would work better with an adhesive base. It had semi-opaque color payoff and lasted for seven hours (with some fall out). LORAC Soft Plum (LE, $19.00) is warmer, lighter, less shimmery (90% similar).

Violet Cassis is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia magenta with cooler, violet pearl. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that applied well and was easy to blend out.

Cookies & Cream is a deep black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish, though there were bits of silver and teal sparkle. The majority of the sparkly bits disappear in practice, so it performed as a matte black when I used it. The texture was soft and blendable–very forgiving on the lid–though the coverage is more semi-opaque and buildable. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours.
