Makeup Geek Infatuation Blush

Makeup Geek Infatuation Blush ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a mostly matte finish. Zoeva Burning Up (P, $11.80) is cooler (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Chaleur (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $25.00) is cooler, brighter, darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Infatuation (P, $9.99) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Bad Girl Gone Good (LE, $22.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). The Estee Edit First Lover (01) (P, $28.00) is cooler, more muted (90% similar). Chanel Destiny (61) (DC, $38.00) is glossier, warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Gina (P, $30.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). MAC Cantaloupe (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar).

MAC Blazing Haute (LE, $25.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is supposed to be pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable (for more on how it compares to the previous formula, check out this post). While it is part of the blush range, it could also be used as a bronzer, as it will (obviously!) add warmth to the skin. The texture was finely-milled with a silky, smooth feel to the touch, which translated into easier application and blending on the skin. It had excellent pigmentation, but that softer consistency made it versatile and more buildable depending on how much you applied. The reformulated version is slightly darker and richer than the original shade. The blush wore well for just over eight hours on me when I tried it out.

Makeup Revolution Golden Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter Powder

Makeup Revolution Golden Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter Powder ($6.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a white gold with strong, yellow-gold shimmer. NYX Ritualistic (P, $9.00) is warmer (95% similar). Sephora Stardust (01) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Marshmallow (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Lit (P, $20.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar).

The formula is supposed to give “natural looking color” with buildable coverage that wears “all day.” It has a stronger, more dramatic golden sheen compared to some versions of this shade (probably the most well-known is NARS’ Albatross) that pulls yellower on me rather than white, which should make it more versatile for a greater number of skin tones. However, the white base is visible and almost appears grayish against my warmer skin tone, which may or may not be something that you’re looking for. The shimmer gives a noticeable sheen and glow to the skin, not quite metallic or frosted, but it is a medium-level highlighter overall. The texture was blendable but felt a little soft, powdery, and a smidgen dry in the pan, but I didn’t find it looked that way on the skin. On me, the highlighter lasted just over six and a half hours.

Makeup Geek Desire Blush

Makeup Geek Desire Blush ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, reddish plum with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. Bite Beauty Biscotti (P, $24.00) is glossier, lighter (95% similar). LORAC Infrared (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Fever (P, $22.00) is brighter, lighter (85% similar). MAC Restores Dazzle (LE, $21.00) is glossier, cooler (85% similar). NARS Debbie Harry Blush (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Chanel Plum Attraction (LE, $45.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is supposed to be pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable (for more on how it compares to the previous formula, check out this post). It had good pigmentation that was mostly opaque to begin with, but it would be fully opaque in a layer and a half. The consistency was soft, smooth, and silky to the touch, which was fantastic to find, as it helped make this shade blendable on the skin. Despite the intensity and richness of the shade, it was easy to work with and diffuse on the skin. If you are fairer, you may want to use a feathery brush and very light hand, but it is forgiving enough that it can be sheered out if over-applied. When wore at less-than-opaque coverage, it tended to look pinker rather than red/plum. This shade lasted for nine hours on me before fading.

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

The formula is supposed to be pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable (for more on how it compares to the previous formula, check out this post). This was one of the more “shimmery” shades in the new range, which has more of a satin-level of shimmer/sheen. It was nicely pigmented and yielded opaque results, if desired, but it was still soft and silky enough to easily diffuse and blend out if you wanted sheerer coverage. The finish was natural–it looked like skin–but not overtly shimmery. When I tested this blush, it wore well for eight and a half hours before visibly fading.

BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes Eyeshadow Palette

BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes Eyeshadow Palette
BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes Eyeshadow Palette

BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes Eyeshadow Palette ($19.00 for 1.58 oz.) contains 28, metallic eyeshadows. I picked this up a couple of months ago, because it was getting a lot of buzz, and I’ve been really impressed by the quality overall. Only a few shades had issues, and they were fairly minor (slightly less pigmented, could apply better with primer or with a dampened brush). The majority of the eyeshadows were very pigmented, applied beautifully on bare skin, blended out easily, and lasted for seven to nine hours on me (without primer). As they are all shimmery, it may not work as well as an all-in-one-look palette, though. If you like your high-shimmer, metallic eyeshadows, it’s well worth checking out!

Foil Eyes #1 is a bright white with a very subtle, warm undertone and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that applied well and lasted for eight hours. Sephora Early Frost (P, $10.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Makeup Geek Chivalry Blush

Makeup Geek Chivalry Blush ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. MAC Sweet As Cocoa (P, $22.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). MAC Raizin (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Anise (P, $24.00) is glossier (90% similar). MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar).

The formula is supposed to be pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable (for more on how it compares to the previous formula, check out this post). The blush was incredibly rich in pigment, and it was easy to get full coverage with very little product–which means it can be easy to overdo it if you aren’t used to working with such rich and deep shades. The consistency was a little firmer, though soft, and for as rich as the shade was, it would have been more preferable if it was easier to blend out. When I worked with it, the blush applied unevenly, and it was a challenge to diffuse and move the powder enough to even out. I would recommend applying a layer of translucent powder over the skin (or base/foundation) before applying the blush, which helps with blending. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours.
