bareMinerals The Royal Court Ready Face Color Trio

bareMinerals The Royal Court Ready Face Color Trio ($29.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a limited edition, slim set of cheek colors–highlighter, blush, and bronzer–for the holidays. I tried to calculate the value, but I’m not sure if these products are sold individually, so for the highlighter and bronzer, I used the Ready Luminizer Duo and the Ready Bronzer for calculations. There is $11.20 worth of highlighter, $15.33 worth of blush, and $11.20 worth of bronzer, which is a total of $37.73 (bareMinerals lists it as $49.50 value, which it may very well be, given the formulas aren’t quite translating).

Clear Radiance is a light, pale pink with subtle, cool undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that didn’t emphasize pores and lasted for eight and a half hours on me (a little longer than eight-hours claimed). Makeup Revolution Moon Glow Lights (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Play It Proper (LE, $22.00) is cooler (95% similar). Giorgio Armani No. 07 (P, $62.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Golden Gate is a muted, medium rosy pink with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and easy to blend on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading (bonus: bareMinerals only markets these as eight-hour wear, how reasonable!). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Capri (P, $58.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). CoverGirl Medium Rose (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Warmth is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a blendable consistency, but I found the powder itself to be a little firmer in the pan than I’ve encountered previously in the Ready formula. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Stila Sending My Love Bronzer (LE) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

NARS One Shocking Moment Blush Palette

NARS One Shocking Moment Blush Palette
NARS One Shocking Moment Blush Palette

NARS One Shocking Moment Blush Palette ($69.00 for 1.01 oz.) includes a highlight/contour duo, bronzer, and four blushes. Two of the blushes (Robotic and Blasphemy) are limited edition and exclusive to the palette, while the other products are part of the permanent range. For those keeping track of value, this palette contains: $36 worth of contour/highlight duo, $40 worth of bronzer (it is actually larger than a full-sized bronzer), and $90 worth of blush, which yields a total value of $166; this is good as far as palettes go, and it’s particularly good for high-end and for the NARS brand. I do think that a contouring duo is risky, since it will not suit all skin tones, and of course, we have seen Laguna umpteen amount of times, so that might be a waste for those who have a few NARS palettes already! Otherwise, it’s a decent to good palette that will be best for those who like buildable blushes, rather than richly pigmented ones.

Paloma Highlight is a very pale beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It feels very soft and silky in the pan, and it gets a little powdery on my arm, where my skin is a little drier, but it didn’t look powdery on my face (which is more normal). It wore well for eight hours on me. Guerlain Mythic (P, $59.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Jardin de Camelias (LE, $70.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Blush Pink (LE, $35.50) is darker (90% similar). YSL Rosy Contouring Highlight (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Highlight (Tarteist) (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Light (P, $45.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). YSL Golden Contouring Highlight (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Nico (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Highlight (P) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Paloma Contour is a muted, rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish.

Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette

Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette ($65.00 for 1.24 oz.) includes 32 eyeshadows, six blushes, and two highlighters. It’s a disappointing palette as the majority of the shades were somewhere between dry, powdery, and dusty (or some combination thereof) with sheerer coverage and a short-wearing formula.

MAC Frankly Scarlet Blush

MAC Frankly Scarlet Blush
MAC Frankly Scarlet Blush

MAC Frankly Scarlet Blush ($17.00 for 0.21 oz. pan-only) is described as a “vivid rose-red [with a matte finish].” It’s a bright, medium red with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. MAC Oh My! (LE, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). Viseart Coral #3 (P) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Never Say Never (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Apple Red (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Mochi (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). NYX Crimson (P, $6.50) is warmer (85% similar). Chanel Rouge Profond (320) (P, $45.00) is darker, more muted (85% 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. Frankly Scarlet packs a real punch of pigment as it had great color payoff and can apply true-to-pan, if desired. When sheered out, it takes on a rosier, pinker coloring and loses some of the underlying red tone. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable on the skin, which are all necessary attributes for such a bold shade as this one! The finish read matte in the pan, but on the skin, it has a “natural” matte finish, where it doesn’t flatten features but doesn’t add genuine shine either. This shade wore wlel for eight and a half hours before fading on me.

MAC Full Fuchsia Blush

MAC Full Fuchsia Blush ($17.00 for 0.21 oz. pan-only) is described as a “bright intense fuchsia [with a Frost finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium fuchsia-pink with strong, blue undertones and a fine shimmer-sheen.

The wear is typically between six and nine hours but closer to seven to eight hours on average. Full Fuchsia had rich, mostly opaque color coverage where a little goes a long way. It can be applied as true intensity or blended out for a softer, sheerer look (where it will look rosier and less fuchsia). The finish is satiny once blended on the skin, so it doesn’t emphasize pores but doesn’t look flat either. It had a fairly soft texture that was a smidgen dusty but relatively easy to work with. This shade lasted for nine hours before fading on me.

MAC Love Joy Mineralize Blush ($27.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “warm mid-toen brown with gold pearl.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle reddish tones and soft, gold shimmer.

MAC’s Mineralize Blush formula is supposed to be a “blush that builds lightly” that has a lightweight feel and “luminous colour.” Lovejoy had good, mostly opaque color payoff, which makes it more pigmented than the formula is described, but for those who wanted the sheerer blush as promised, it is more forgiving and can be blended out quite a bit (you can also use a lighter hand, of course). The texture was soft, smooth, and silky with a lightweight, thin consistency that blends easily and sits well on the skin. It had a noticeable sheen, but it didn’t emphasize pores. On me, this shade lasted for seven and a half hours before fading.
