Revlon Legacy Collection Super Lustrous Lipsticks

For spring, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick ($6.99 for 0.13 oz.) sees the limited edition return of five iconic shades from the past as voted by Revlon customers. I found mine last week at CVS, and the display looked like it had just been put out, so hopefully if these interest you, you’ll find them locally! The Super Lustrous formula is supposed to be hydrating, smooth, and creamy. I found all five shades to be lightly hydrating with pretty good pigmentation and about average wear. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

theBalm #25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 Eyeshadows

#25 is medium-dark, cool-toned taupe with a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was very soft but a little powdery though easy to blend. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading. Guerlain Two VIP #2 (LE) is slightly warmer. MAC Smoked Cocoa #2 (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Maybelline Tough as Taupe (P, $6.99) is darker, cream. MAC Interior Life (LE, $15.00) is darker. bareMinerals Rowdy (P) is more mauve. See comparison swatches.

Round-up: Milani Rose Powder Blush Reviews & Photos

Milani Rose Powder Blush Comparisons

Milani Rose Powder Blush ($7.99 for 0.60 oz.) introduced four new and limited edition shades for spring. Unfortunately, all four of them were misses for me. The colors were gorgeous, and the design delicate and lovely in the pan, but the performance was where this product fell–and fell hard. The texture of all four shades was incredibly powdery and dry, and three of the four shades also felt like they had chalky bases (maybe an excess of talc). They’re the type of product that really needs help to perform decently, so if you’re someone who typically applies blush over a cream or liquid foundation, doesn’t mind having to spend a little time blending and evening out the blush, then maybe they’re still worth considering, but I really don’t think they’re worth the work. I would steer you in the direction of Delizioso Pink or Bella Rosa, both intensely pigmented blushes that performed well (both by Milani).

Maybelline Nude Rebellion & Barely Pink Master Glaze Glisten Blush Sticks

For spring, Maybelline released two limited edition shades of Master Glaze in its Dare to Go Nude Collection. The Master Glaze formula is supposed to give cheeks a “dewy and gently glazed” look with “the sheerest color.” They have a slick, very emollient consistency, so they blend out really easily, even over foundation, without disturbing underlying base products. They never fully set or dry down, which leaves the finish looking noticeably luminous and dewy–for some, it might look “oily,” as it is a higher level of sheen. Wear time is short, though, and I don’t get much longer than six hours of wear before it looks faded and patchy.
