Rose Champagne

Wet ‘n’ Wild Rose Champagne Color Icon Blush ($2.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a soft peach with warm undertones and fine, gold pearl. It had a subtle shimmer-sheen finish that became softly luminous when buffed and blended out on the skin.

The brand says that it’s supposed to be a “buildable, blendable powder” with “long-lasting color.” It had good pigmentation that was buildably from mostly opaque to opaque. The blush had a fairly soft, lightly dusty texture that was blendable on the skin and easy to work with, especially if you’re someone who can be heavy-handed with blush. The color itself is on the lighter end of the spectrum, so it would be something that would show up more visibly on fairer skin tones than my light-medium complexion, where it worked more as a highlighter than a blush. It lasted well on my skin for seven and a half hours.

Éclair

Bite Beauty Éclair Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, lightweight texture was smooth, lightly tacky, and easy to spread across the lips for even coverage. I had just the slightest amount of product settle into my deeper lip lines but the shine helped to minimize the appearance from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for five hours and was moisturizing while worn.

The Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick is supposed to be “moisture-rich, high-pigment” in a “liquified” consistency that has a “creamy, comfortable application.” It’s a lightweight, fluid consistency that was neither runny nor thick on the lips. It does not dry down and feels mostly like a liquid-form of a lipstick (and not so much like a gloss). The majority of the range was incredibly pigmented and spread evenly across the lips. Some shades had a bit of color that sat in my lip lines, which was noticeable from a normal viewing distance with a few but not all. It had a lightly tacky feel on the lips, which helped to adhere as none of the shades I have tested have feathered on me. The formula was lightly hydrating, wore for four to seven hours, and had a light, herbal, lemony scent but no discernible taste.

If you’ve been following Bite for awhile, you might remember the Cashmere Lip Creams from a few years ago, which were also a liquid formula. Unfortunately, I had a couple leak on me and ended up tossing all of them out of fear, so I couldn’t do a true comparison, but from my memory, it was slightly thicker and less tacky while both had a more natural shine after initial application.

Botanic Dream

Wet ‘n’ Wild Botanic Dream MegaGlo Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with stronger, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The finish was more metallic as I diffused and blended out the powder on the skin, but it did not seem to accentuate the look of my skin’s natural texture.

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “silky smooth” texture that is “easy-to-blend.” The highlighter was soft, smooth, and blendable on the skin without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan, which made it easy to use as well as to control the amount of product picked up on a brush. It was nicely pigmented with nearly opaque coverage in a single layer. This shade lasted for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Pearlescent Pink

Wet ‘n’ Wild Pearlescent Pink Color Icon Blush ($2.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with a golden shimmer. After blending out the powder, the finish was more of a satin sheen.

The brand says that it’s supposed to be a “buildable, blendable powder” with “long-lasting color.” The consistency was slightly drier with moderate amounts of excess powder that kicked up in the pan, but I had no trouble blending and diffusing the edges of the blush on my skin, and I did not feel like it looked dry applied. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that lasted for seven hours on me.

Saint No Angel

MAC Saint No Angel Look in a Box Lip Kit ($26.50 for 0.28 oz.) includes travel-sized lipsticks and lipglosses (two of each) in shades of peach/mauve–I liked that the set was more two duos in a box. In the past, MAC has released lip kits that featured full-sized products at a higher price tag, and I’m digging the travel-sized shades with the more palatable $26.50 price tag. Each Lipstick is 0.06 oz. (full-sized is 0.10 oz.) and each Lipglass is 0.08 fl. oz. (full-sized is 0.10 fl. oz.), which puts the value of the set at $47.60: $20.40 worth of lipstick and $27.20 worth of lipgloss.

Dusk

Sephora Dusk Golden Hour Highlighting Powder ($16.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a soft pink with warm undertones and golden shimmer. It has a luminous finish–glowing but not metallic or too reflective.

The formula is supposed to have a “soft, luminous glow with a sheer wash of color” that can be “worn alone or layered.” It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage. On very, very fair skin tones, it might show some visible color, but on my skin tone it was more like a true highlighter. The consistency was very smooth without being dusty or powdery in the pan–it almost feel like a really dense cream–but it yielded in the pan and was easy to blend out on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading slightly.
