Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Bitter Clove & Charred Emerald Eye Metals

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Eye Metals ($45.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to be a “rich color powder eyeshadow” that is “densely pigmented” that can be worn alone or layered. There are two shades in the collection, and they performed similarly, though Bitter Clove is a bit richer overall and longer wearing. They were nicely pigmented with very dense, almost cream-like textures that blended out easily on the lid and adhered to bare lids. I found that they were prone to creasing within six hours of wear, but the wear time improved to eight hours (before creasing) over primer, so primer helped but can’t say these are the longest wearing formula. I did not experience much fall out, though, despite the high sparkle content in Bitter Clove (Charred Emerald has more of a pearly sheen). I liked them, but at the price point, it’s definitely a lot for a single eyeshadow, so they’re not going to be worth it for everyone.

MAC Claretcast, Eros, Life’s Blood Liptensity Lipsticks

MAC Claretcast Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pinky berry with subtle, cool undertones paired with a satin finish. It had full color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly, with just a bit of tugging initially but became easier to glide on as it melted against the lips. The texture was light-to-medium in weight, lightly tacky but comfortable to wear over a six and a half hour period. The formula was a smidgen drying after four hours of wear. MAC Marsala (LE, $21.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty Aubergine (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Melted Berry (P, $21.00) is glossier (95% similar).

Bobbi Brown Bobbi to Glow Shimmer Brick Trio

Bobbi Brown Bobbi to Glow Shimmer Brick Palette ($69.00 for 1.02 oz.) includes three Shimmer Bricks, which are very shimmery powders. Each Shimmer Brick has five shades, so the color that you get can vary depending on where you concentrate your brush. All three shades have been released before, though only Bronze is part of the permanent range from what I could tell! It’s a powder highlight that features five colors, which are designed to be used together (though you can concentrate your brush in areas as well, or if you have an eye brush, you can use them individually) and applied to the face to highlight.

Tarte Color Wheel Amazonian Clay Blush Palette

Tarte Coor Wheel Amazonian Clay Blush Palette ($44.00 for 0.84 oz.) includes 10 blushes housed in a circular compact that opens and reveals five blushes on each side (there is no mirror as a result). Each pan is a decent size at 0.084 oz. a pop with a wide enough diameter that most blush brushes fit easily in them. The pans did not appear removable (I tried three pans with tweezers, and I didn’t feel any give). It would be a travel-friendly way to take so many blushes with you without taking up a lot of space.
