Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo ($78.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition blush duo for summer that uses a wet/dry formula. According to the brand, the blush “can be applied wet for a soft veil of color” or “dry for a sweeping pop of vibrancy.” Both shades were fairly pigmented applied dry, but both intensified and were much more opaque when applied damp. They were less blendable when applied with a damp brush (the darker shade was less forgiving). The wear dry was eight to eight and a half hours, and the wear damp was eight and a half hours (for both shades). Forgetting that it’s supposed to be sheer when applied damp, it’s a nice blush duo, and I think that for those who don’t want to bother with damp application, the dry application is actually where the blushes shine best.

Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette

Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette ($38.00 for 0.63 oz.) contains four shades of warm-toned blushes for spring/summer. It’s a limited edition palette housed in a slim, travel-friendly palette with a large interior mirror and the products are labeled on the palette itself. The formula used is the Amazonian Clay Blush one, which is supposed to have 12-hour wear and be “pigment-packed.” I like Tarte’s formula, but the one downside is that they rarely wear much beyond eight hours, so they tend to get hit badly by longevity ratings as a result. The pigmentation can sometimes be lacking, but all four shades in the palette had good color payoff.

ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Pretty Bonnes Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “creamy ivory with subtle gold duochrome effect.” It’s a light, creamy beige with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. I don’t really notice a duochrome effect in person. The texture was soft, lightly emollient, and smooth on the skin. It is most blendable with fingertips (I think the warmth of fingers helps), but I had no issues using a brush–it just took a little longer. It has mostly opaque coverage applied with fingertips and then more semi-sheer, buildable coverage when used with brushes (as described). The texture didn’t emphasize pores and lasted for eight hours. Cle de Peau Bal Masque (LE, $120.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). L'Oreal Rose (P, $12.99) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Lightscapade (P, $32.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Highlight 01 (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
