Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eyes & Blush Palette

Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eye & Blush Palette
Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eye & Blush Palette

Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eye & Blush Palette ($90.00 for 0.40 oz.) includes five eyeshadows housed in the top tier and then four blushes hidden beneath it in the lower tier. I’m not a fan of the blush formula they use in these tiered palettes, and I’m even less of a fan of the fact that the pans are tiny (even the “large” ones)–an eye brush just comfortably fits in the smallest pans, so you can imagine what a pain it is to dip a blush brush just into one shade (better to think of them as duos or even a single shade, perhaps). The blush formula is on the drier, dustier side and has lesser color payoff, though it is somewhat buildable. I like the eyeshadow formula a lot more, but the colors are dupable, typical for holiday (not really a bad thing, but it’s less tempting for some), and even more, more similar than not to last year’s holiday palette as well. That being said, the eyeshadows weren’t good enough to make up for the subpar blush performance this year.

Ors et Merveilles #1 is a medium-dark brown with a pearly sheen.

Ors et Merveilles #2 is a deep taupe brown with warm undertones but a cooler overtone and subtle violet shimmer (that was a little surprise!). The texture was really smooth and buttery, so it applied easily and had intense color payoff. This shade wore for eight and a half hours before fading.

Ors et Merveilles #4 is a light-medium yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted, sparkly finish. It had so-so color payoff, and the texture was dry, which resulted in sheerer coverage and some fall out during application. It wore for seven and a half hours with some fall out. Guerlain Petrouchka #2 (LE) is darker (95% similar). Viseart Ceska (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Blazing Gold (LE, $29.50) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Ors et Merveilles #5 is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage (it’s a bit better than it appears in the swatch, as it is quite close to my skin tone, I think it looks almost misleadingly sheer in the photo) with a slightly firmer texture. It lasted for eight hours. Colour Pop Party Girl (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Frisco (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

Ors et Merveilles #7 is a subtly bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish.

NYX Amber (P, $6.50) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Bashful (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Every Time You Go (LE, $21.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar).

Ors et Merveilles #8 is a medium pink with warm undertones and lighter pink shimmer.

Ors et Merveilles #9 is a pop of medium, orange-coral with gold sparkle and shimmer. The texture was noticeably dry to the point where the powder didn’t feel like it was binding together, so it sheered out and looked a little textured on the skin (the shimmers/sparkles separate from the base). On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours. Tom Ford Beauty Love Lust (P, $55.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Ecstasy (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Clinique Peach Pop (02) (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar).

MAC Raizin Blush

MAC Raizin Blush
MAC Raizin Blush

MAC Raizin Blush ($17.00 for 0.21 oz. pan-only) is described as a “golden reddish-brown.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark chocolate brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Chivalry (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Anise (P, $24.00) is glossier (90% similar). The Estee Edit Ember Glow (04) (P, $28.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Naturally Enhanced (LE, $32.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). MAC Sweet As Cocoa (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). NARS Melina (Contour) (P) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Cheeky (79) (DC, $38.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC’s Powder Blush formula is supposed to be easy to apply, long-wearing, and have “fantastic colour.” It’s hard to generalize for MAC’s blush formula, because it varies a lot from shade to shade, even within different types of finishes! Some of them are very good, others are so-so, and a few are complete misses. The more frosted/shimmery shades tend to have the softest and smoothest textures and are easier to apply and blend out on the skin, while more satin and matte shades can sometimes be powdery, firm, or stiff, which makes blending more challenging. The wear is typically between six and nine hours but closer to seven to eight hours on average. Raizin had rich color payoff with a fairly soft, blendable texture. It wasn’t the easiest blush to blend out from MAC, but it was a lot better than some of the other deeper-hued shades in the range. The finish retained most of the matte-like quality, but it didn’t look dry or powdery on my skin. The color wore well for eight and a half hours before fading.

MAC Rhubarb Blush ($17.00 for 0.21 oz. pan-only) is described as a “bright magenta [with a Satin finish].” It’s a bright, raspberry pink with cool, blue undertones and satin finish. Tom Ford Beauty Narcissist (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Let's Be Friends (LE, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar).

The wear is typically between six and nine hours but closer to seven to eight hours on average. Rhubarb was richly pigmented with a natural sheen that emphasize pores but kept skin looking natural and skin-like. The texture seemed a bit firmer in the pan, and almost dry, but it blended out fairly well and didn’t require any tricks to apply. This shade stayed on well for nine hours.

MAC Warm Soul Mineralize Blush

MAC Warm Soul Mineralize Blush
MAC Warm Soul Mineralize Blush

MAC Warm Soul Mineralize Blush ($27.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone beige with gold pearl.” It’s a medium, peachy-orange with hints of beige and soft, gold shimmer. Urban Decay Streak Bronzer (P)(95% similar). Urban Decay Indecent (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Cream Soda (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Infatuation (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Kinky (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Sensual (P, $28.00)(85% similar).

MAC’s Mineralize Blush formula is supposed to be a “blush that builds lightly” that has a lightweight feel and “luminous colour.” Warm Soul had semi-opaque color coverage that could be sheered out, but it didn’t build to fully opaque color either. The texture was lightly dusty but smooth and easily blended and diffused on the skin. The finish is somewhere between natural and luminous; it is one of the less shimmery shades in the Mineralize Blush formula, but it appears more shimmery on the skin as it is blended in than it does in the pan or just swatched. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading on me.

Too Faced Le Grand Palais Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Le Grand Palais Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced Le Grand Palais Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Le Grand Palais Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 1.93 oz.) is a large, limited edition holiday set that has a little bit of everything, but it is primarily an eyeshadow and blush palette with a few extras thrown in. There are a lot of chunky, glittery eyeshadows included in the palette, which are difficult to use without a really good tacky primer (which is why I think they should have included their own Glitter Glue adhesive instead of their regular eyeshadow primer!). The packaging is very giftable, but it is bulky, so those who have a fair amount of palettes in their stash may find that a lot of the packaging ends up in the recycling bin. This review is focused only on the eyeshadows and cheek products and excludes the primer, mascara, and liquid lip color (that I’ve reviewed as a standalone product in the past).

The value is more complicated to calculate, as Too Faced’s eyeshadow formula is the one they use in palettes but seems quite different from their only available single formula (Exotic Color). They also don’t indicate that the blushes in the palette are anything more than their go-to blush formula in palettes (I don’t think they’re the new Love Flush formula). That being said, here is what I did calculate:

  • Eyeshadows: 1.11 oz. = $102.46 value (palette price per ounce) or $333.00 (single price per ounce)
    • I think the price per ounce of their eyeshadows in their 9-pan palettes, which are $36.00 for 0.39 oz. or $92.31/oz. is more comparable, but if you go with the price per ounce of their Exotic Color Eyeshadow singles, then it would be $300.00/oz.
  • Blushes: 0.16 oz. = $19.81 value
    • Even though the blushes don’t seem to be the Love Flush formula, the $26.00 for 0.21 oz. or $123.81 seems about right for an equivalent standalone blush formula.
  • Highlighter: 0.08 oz. = $6.86 value
    • Their Candlelight Glow highlighter duo is $30.00 for 0.35 oz. or $85.71/ oz.
  • Bronzer: 0.08 oz. = $6.86 value
    • Sun Bunny Natural Bronzer is $30.00 for 0.35 oz. or $85.71/oz.
  • Shadow Insurance: 0.17 oz. = $9.71 value
    • The full-size is $20.00 for 0.35 oz. or $57.14/oz.
  • Melted Peony: 0.16 fl. oz. = $8.40 value
    • The full-size is $21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz. or $52.50/oz.
  • Better Than Sex Mascara: 0.17 oz. = $14.48 value
    • The full-size is $23.00 for 0.27 oz. or $85.19/oz.
  • Total Value: $168.58 or $399.12

Sun Bunny #1 is a medium-dark, orange-toned brown with a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff, but the texture was powdery and thinner. The standalone version (and past ones I’ve tried) had greater density, because I noticed with this palette’s version, a lot of the shimmer dusted away and didn’t remain on the face–it looked more like a satin finish applied, which was quite strange. It lasted for eight hours. Colour Pop Avalon (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Bikini Contest (P, $3.99) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Tarte Bling It On Blush Palette

Tarte Bling It On Amazonian Clay Blush Palette
Tarte Bling It On Amazonian Clay Blush Palette

Tarte Bling It On Amazonian Clay Blush Palette ($44.00 for 0.75 oz.) is a decent to good blush palette if you like your blushes mid-tone and warm-toned with more satin-like finishes–and 12-hour wear-time isn’t a must. Four of the five are new (as far as I can tell), with Dollface being a shade in the permanent line (but I think the one in this palette isn’t quite as blue-based). That being said, Tarte has released a lot of limited edition blushes in the same type of shades, so you may already have ones similar enough. I’m not a fan of the packaging, as the black glitter is quite chunky and flakes off the palette. Tarte’s full-sized, standalone blushes cost $28.00 and contain 0.20 oz. or $140.00/oz. This palette contains $105.00 worth of blush for those of you keeping track of value this year!

The Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush formula is supposed to last for twelve hours (shocker!) with “soft to vivid” colors. They are longer-wearing than the average blush, but the tend to wear between eight and ten hours on me. The coverage is semi-sheer to mostly opaque, while the finishes are usually semi-matte to satin. One issue I have with the blushes is that they tend to develop hardened surfaces as they seem particularly sensitive to any oil getting on the surface (e.g. oils from your face transfer to your blush brush, which is dipped into the pan).

Fetching is a muted, medium rosy pink with soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a fairly soft, smooth texture that blended out easily on the skin while the color lasted for nine hours on me.

Dollface is a soft, light-medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage. The texture was soft, a little dusty, but applied well and didn’t look dusty or dry on the skin. On me, the blush lasted for eight and a half hours. theBalm Argyle (P, $22.00) is cooler (95% similar). Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is more muted (95% similar).

Prim is a muted, rosy brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The texture on this shade was a little firmer, which made it harder to get color payoff out of it, so it was more semi-sheer to semi=opaque and needed two to three layers to be visible on my medium skin tone. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Tarte Impress (LE, $28.00) is darker (95% similar).

Smashing is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade was very soft and silky, but it kicked up excess powder in the pan, so it was also more powdery to work with. Luckily, it didn’t read powdery on the skin. It had good pigmentation and blended out with ease. On me, this shade lasted for nine hours.

Beaming is a soft, light-medium peach with a hint of pink and silver sparkle and shimmer. The texture was somewhat dry and dusty to work with, and this is a shade that really sheered out when applied to bare skin. The sparkle/shimmer didn’t bind well with the base powder, so it actually looked quite matte applied. It wore for eight hours on me. Chanel Infiniment Chanel (P, $65.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Honeymoon (P, $9.99) is more shimmery (95% similar).
