Milani Corallina Baked Blush

Milani Corallina Baked Powder Blush

Milani Corallina Baked Powder Blush ($7.49 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium coral-orange with gold shimmer. NARS Me First (LE, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). NYX Menage a Trois (P, $15.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Romance (DC, $9.99) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Stereo Rose (LE, $33.00) is cooler (90% similar). NYX Rose Gold (P, $6.50) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Coral (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Stila Peach Shimmer (LE, ) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Baked Blush formula is supposed to be “buildable from sheer to vibrant” paired with a “silky” texture. Corallina has a soft, smooth consistency that is a little dusty but not really powdery or dry. The color blended out easily on the skin, and the shimmer wasn’t too large, so it didn’t emphasize pores and gave off a very luminous sheen. It had semi-sheer to opaque coverage, as described, and it was forgiving, as you could sheer it out or intensify it without it looking caked on or becoming splotchy. The blush wore for seven hours on me before fading slightly.

The Baked Blush formula is supposed to be “buildable from sheer to vibrant” paired with a “silky” texture. Luminoso has a soft, smooth texture that is a little powdery/dusty to work with, but it doesn’t appear dry or powdery once blended and buffed into the skin. The more it is blended into the skin, the more luminous the finish becomes without looking overly shimmered or frosted. It was buildable from medium coverage to mostly opaque coverage, and it was pretty easy to achieve sheer coverage with a lighter hand. On me, the blush started to fade noticeably after seven and a half hours of wear.

It had rich, opaque coverage that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture was fairly lightweight but did cling noticeably. It is matte and dries down fully, but it looks more “natural” on as it isn’t a totally flat finish. On me, the color lasted for almost eight hours and faded evenly, but it was drying. NYX Merlot (P, $6.00) is glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Lyin' King (P, $6.00) is brighter, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Miss Argentina (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar).

ColourPop Where the Night Is Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow ($20.00 for 0.28 oz. or $5.00 for each 0.07 oz. shade) is a collection of four Super Shock Shadows that can be purchased a “set,” but you can also purchase each shade alone. There’s no monetary advantage to purchasing the set; the only difference is you would get the packaging that reflects the collaboration and collection’s name. It’s a nice selection of shades, and all four shades performed well for me and were consistent with the formula I’ve come to know and love. If you’re unfamiliar with the Super Shock Shadow formula, it is more like a cream-powder hybrid than traditional cream eyeshadow. If you touch it, the product feels more like a sponge or stiff mousse, as there is light give, but it doesn’t have the same emollient or thickness of traditional cream products. The texture is thinner and is manipulated on the skin more like a powder. The brand says that using fingertips yields the greatest pigmentation, and if you prefer, synthetic brushes, but I find synthetic brushes to work well for applying and still getting great pigmentation out of the majority of shades (typically the very glittery shades are ones where fingertips really do improve them).

Midnight is described as a “black undertone with a ton of gold glitter on top in a metallic finish.” It’s a blackened olive green with warm undertones and gold glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers of product. The texture was lightly emollient and blended out well without turning patchy. The eyeshadow was still going strong after ten hours of wear (no primer), but I did have a few stray glittery bits underneath my eye. Charlotte Tilbury Veruschka (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Gingerluxe #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Greenluxe #4 (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D308 Aquatic Khaki (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Gabon (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #24 (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Hammered (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Color Field #5 (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I328 Bronze (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Cosmic Deco #2 (P, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals Eureka (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Crowbar (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Sephora Hidden Treasure (114) (LE, $13.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Inglot #419 (P, $6.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Porter is described as a “warm burgundy with gold multi-dimensional gold glitter on top [of] a metallic finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark cranberry with hints of warm, pinky-copper tones and subtle gold sparkle. The texture had a really creamy, smooth feel to it, and it applied with true-to-pot color with full coverage. It blends out with ease and doesn’t look patchy or faded. On me, I didn’t have any fading or creasing even after ten hours of wear. Colour Pop Lectra (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Heritage Rouge (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Hidden Motive (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). City Color It's a Girl (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Plummed (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Framboise (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Brazenly (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). YSL Scandal #3 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Telepathy is described as a “bright gold with a green undertone in an ultra-metallic finish.” It’s a bright, light-medium yellow gold with an almost “cool” undertone (compared to most golds, which are often orange-based) paired with a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had great color payoff with a smooth, blendable consistency that applied beautifully and was still in pristine condition after ten hours of wear. Kat Von D Prophet (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #5 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Thrasher (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Goldmine (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 02 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Blitz (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Instigator (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #3 (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Fortune Teller (P, $9.99) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Hourglass Color Field #2 (P, ) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Weenie is described as a “pinky rose gold in a pearlized finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was nicely pigmented with full coverage and a creamy, moderately emollient texture (it felt “wetter” than most ColourPop eyeshadows). It sheered out just a wee bit when applied, but it layered well if you needed pristine, opaque pigmentation. It wore well for ten hours. Coloured Raine Who Me (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Reward Yourself (LE, $16.50) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop La-La (LE, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Rose Gold (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Muse #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D708 Pinky Copper (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze (LE, $45.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Quite Yummy! (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Luscious (P, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). City Color Homecoming Queen (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar).

ColourPop Aquarius, Taurus, Rayezor Lippie Stix

ColourPop Aquarius Lippie Stix
ColourPop Aquarius Lippie Stix

ColourPop Aquarius Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “soft pink nude in a creme finish.” It’s a light-medium, rosy beige with warm undertones and a soft shine. The color was muted enough without being dark that it surprised me in its versatility–I felt like it could tone down a look or brighten a look. It had mostly opaque coverage with a very creamy, emollient texture with more slip than your average shade in the Lippie Stix range. It was very lightly hydrating over the four hours it lasted, but I did notice some of the color slipped into lip lines after two to three hours of wear. The thicker, creamier texture made it easier to press my lips together to smooth the color back out while wearing it, but it was worth noting. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Fawn Over Me (P, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Honeycomb (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals Sexpot (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Tarte Rum Punch (P, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar).

ColourPop Taurus Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone yellow brown in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a satin finish. It had intense, full coverage with a smooth, creamy texture that applied beautifully and easily. The color stayed on well for almost five hours, while the formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time. MAC Tabla (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Photo (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Ruffle (LE, $5.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) (P, $7.49) is cooler (85% similar).

NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop RAYEzor Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “warm peachy nude in a matte finish.” It’s a muted, medium peachy-brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s almost coral-like, though it pulls browner and doesn’t have pink tones to it. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that was easy enough to apply without tugging on the lips. The color wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Pinch (DC, $5.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Maybelline Clay Crush (P, $7.99) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $32.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar).

Tom Ford Beauty Twist of Fate (LE, $50.00) is darker, brighter (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lippie Stix are vanilla-scented and come in twist-up tubes. Most of the finishes are not hydrating for me, but they are usually not drying either (unsurprisingly, the more matte a shade was, the more likely it was on the drying side). Note, they’re affordable because of a lower price point, but they do contain less product than your average twist-up lip product (about 0.05 to 0.07 oz.) and even less than your standard lipstick (about 0.10 to 0.12 oz.). Depending on how you look at value, it may or may not be as compelling of a budget product (e.g. it could be a good value if you rarely finish your lipsticks or are looking to try a shade you’re unsure about).

ColourPop Santos & New Lowes Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft golden bronze.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, rosy undertones and a pearly sheen. There’s a plum/rosy vibe I get from it that makes it appear less bronzy, especially as I blended it out (even against my warmer undertones). The texture was smooth, soft, and blendable without being too dry or too emollient. It had buildable color coverage from semi-sheer to opaque, depending on how you applied it (which is how it is described). This shade wore well for ten hours before fading. Urban Decay Sesso (Bronzer) (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Paranoid (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Terra India (LE, $53.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop New Lowes Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned berry.” It’s a medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque with a natural finish that wasn’t shimmery but not totally matte. The more this is blended out (and sheered out), the more it appears as a stain. The texture was smooth, thin, and a little drier compared to the more shimmery shades in the cheek color range. It was fairly blendable, but it wasn’t quite as effortless as Santos. It wore well for ten hours before starting to fade. NARS Chic (LE, $30.00) is more muted (90% similar). LORAC Chroma (P, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar). NYX Desert Rose (P, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). Viseart Violet #2 (P, ) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Blind Score (LE, $22.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Chanel Fantastic (66) (DC, $38.00) is brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Thames (LE, $8.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Hot Nights (LE, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Fever (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Berry (LE, $26.00) is darker (80% similar).
