Moons of Jupiter

MAC Moons of Jupiter Full Face Kit ($40.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes two Cream Colour Bases and one Sculpting Powder. The Cream Colour Base formula is supposed to have sheer, buildable coverage with a dewy finish that lasts for “eight hours on face and body” and has “lasting wear for hours on eyes. I tend to prefer Cream Colour Bases on cheeks for better wear and application, but for use on eyes, they’re best used as an all-over wash of color or on the brow bone to add shine. Both of the Cream Colour Bases in the palette were easy to blend out and had a dewy finish with buildable coverage, but the Sculpting Powder was incredibly difficult to blend out.

Happy Glow

Guerlain Happy Glow Meteorites Blush ($54.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and silver sparkle. The pink powder seemed like a soft matte–not really shimmery but not so matte that it appeared flat on the skin–but there were distinct sparkles on the skin.

It’s a new, limited edition pressed blush from the brand that’s supposed to work as a “blush and a highlighter.” The formula is supposed to “lightly sculpt and illuminate” the complexion, which I suspect is code for not-the-most-pigmented-blush-ever. It comes in a soft pink compact, which seemed a little lighter and “cheaper” to me than their usual compacts (but it seemed sturdy and functional), and the powder has the brand’s signature violet scent. It had sheer, buildable coverage (up to medium) that was incredibly blendable, as the consistency was soft, finely-milled, and smooth to the touch.

Between the coverage level and the lightness of the color itself, it is going to be more suitable for lighter complexions and someone who doesn’t want a lot of shine from their highlighter but doesn’t mind visible sparkle. I’m light-medium in skin tone, and I get only a hint of pink on my skin. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

MAC x Kabuki Magic Today We Live Powder Blush Duo ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes a soft, coral blush paired with a medium, taupe-brown. It’s a decent product, but the taupe-brown could be easier to work with. This is part of the MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics collection in collaboration with Kabuki, which will be available online on January 19th.

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Buddy Powder Blush Duo ($33.00 for 0.35 oz.) consists of a rose with a matte finish and a shimmery plum. Swirled together, they create a pearly, rosy plum. The matte side wasn’t quite as good as the shimmery shade, but they were both decent to good blushes. The two shades work well together, layered, or worn alone, though the shimmery shade is narrow enough that most blush brushes would not fit well (without getting some of the matte shade on them).

Bumpy Ride

NARS Bumpy Ride Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a light golden sheen. It’s a very springy shade, and it’s a less shimmery version of their well-known Orgasm. My guess is this will work well for lighter skin tones and medium complexions who want a hint of color, as it is visible but a more subtle blush on my light-medium skin tone.

It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that was a touch dusty but seemed to sit well on the skin. The finish became more satiny as I blended and buffed the color on my cheeks. On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

Peach Passion

Estee Lauder Peach Passion Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is light-medium pink with warm undertones and gold shimmer. Applied and blended out on the skin, the finish became more luminous with a soft glow that didn’t look like heavy shimmer and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The blush had a soft, lightly dusty texture that felt drier to the touch but did not look dry or powdery on my skin. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage that wore well for even and a half hours on me.
