NYX Twilight Tint Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder ($7.99 for 0.21 oz.) is cool, bluish white with an iridescent blue-to-violet sheen. The finish was somewhere between luminous and frost; slightly visible shimmer but once blended and buffed into the skin, the finish appeared more like a very smooth, luminous sheen. It had a moderately dense texture–the kind that has a very smooth feel with zero dustiness or powderiness to it but wasn’t actually stiff or difficult to work with. It had nearly opaque coverage, though I felt like it was easy to control and use with a lighter hand (or a different tool) to get semi-sheer to medium coverage, if desired. This type of shade can work exceptionally well layered over other products, especially to add a cooler, bluer tone to them, while also highlighting an area. When I tested this for wear, the highlighter wore well for eight hours on me.

Maybelline Almond Rose Color Sensational Inti-Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a slightly brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had excellent coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that glided across the lips comfortably. It wore well for four and a half hours with a bit of color that had settled into my deeper lip lines, but overall, it was lightly hydrating and didn’t emphasize the texture of my lips like some of the other shades in the Inti-Matte range did.

Maybelline’s Color Sensational line does have a sweet, perfume-y scent to them, though it did not seem quite as overwhelming in the Inti-Matte range compared to past launches to my nose.

NYX Synthetica Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder ($7.99 for 0.21 oz.) is a pop of orange with warm, red undertones and a gold, frosted finish. It had good color coverage–not quite full coverage but close–with a smooth, silky consistency that was denser and firmer in the pan. It blended out easily on the skin, but I would recommend using a denser brush or using a heavier hand to get product onto the brush. I didn’t feel like the powder was stiff, but it wasn’t as loosely pressed as a lot of highlighters on the market, which did make it easier to control and build coverage and sheen up. This should work well for highlighting on darker skin tones and act more as a highlighting blush on lighter complexions. On me, the highlighter lasted for eight hours before fading.

Beige Babe

Maybelline Beige Babe Color Sensational Inti-Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that did not apply particularly well; despite the texture feeling creamy and gliding across the lips without tugging, the color separated and caught on every flake and imperfection I had. It wore poorly, as the color moved around, migrated into lip lines, and turned patchy within two hours of wear. I think the only way to make it workable is mixed with a little bit of balm (which doesn’t help the settling but improves the drier appearance) or use over a lip liner.

Maybelline’s Color Sensational line does have a sweet, perfume-y scent to them, though it did not seem quite as overwhelming in the Inti-Matte range compared to past launches to my nose.

Hot Sand

Maybelline Hot Sand Color Sensational Inti-Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm, pale orange undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was chalk-like in that it appeared drier, almost crumbly on the lips and separated at my lip lines (like a matte, liquid lipstick might after drying down), despite the actual texture feeling very creamy with moderate slip. I think that if worn with a liner, it would look more flattering on. It lasted for three hours on me, but it had severely separated over time. The formula was lightly hydrating overall.

ColourPop Hack Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and pink glitter. The brand described the coverage as sheer, and I would describe it as sheer to semi-sheer coverage. The gloss was non-sticky, lightweight, and smooth on the lips, which made it comfortable to wear, but I did notice color had settled into my lip lines, despite the gloss applying evenly otherwise. It lasted for three hours on me and was hydrating.
