Round-up: Make Up For Ever Star Lit Liquids & Powders

Make Up For Ever 3 Gold Champagne Star Lit Liquid

I’m here with a recap of all the shades I reviewed of Make Up For Ever Star Lit Liquid ($24.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) and Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.). The liquid is fun if you like a lot of glitter–big flecks of sparkly goodness–and the powder is more suitable for a pearly sheen. I think the powder is more versatile, as it worked easily on eyes, cheeks, and lips (though they can get lost with deeper or more emollient formulas).

Round-up: Makeup Geek Iconic Lipsticks

Here’s a look at the Makeup Geek Iconic Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) shades I’ve reviewed. There were some winners, but there were some misses. Overall, the glossier shades were easier to wear than the more matte shades. The creamier shades were more comfortable, easier to apply, and looked better on the lips than some of the mattes. I think that while they are a more pigmented lipstick, a lot of them were semi-opaque to mostly opaque. I liked that some of the shades were more unique, and there seemed to be a decent mix of warm, cool, light and dark, but it was heavier on the mauve/plum family.
