Tom Ford Pink Glow Eye & Cheek Compact

Tom Ford Pink Glow Eye & Cheek Compact ($95.00 for 0.47 oz.) is an indulgence, but it performs well across the board and everything works well together. The majority of the colors are on the dupable side, so some may find there are too many near-repeats to make it a worthwhile splurge. I’m a huge fan of Tom Ford’s blush formula–it’s my favorite–and constantly wish he would expand it (permanently!), and the blushes in here are gorgeous. I cannot express to you how glowing and luminous the effect of the two are, individually or layered together. The palette has strong, warmer undertones across all of the shades. The weakest performer was the glittery shade, which had some fall out, but the almost wet-like texture helped it apply with stronger coverage and less fall out initially than your traditional, more true-to-powder-form glittery eyeshadow.

ColourPop In Bloom Set

ColourPop In Bloom Set ($39.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes three cheek colors and three lipsticks released in collaboration with Jamie Greenberg. It’s an assortment of brightened takes on spring shades, and it seems like a little preview of the brand’s upcoming cream highlighters (they’ve teased about them on Instagram) with Double Dip. All six products performed good to great, were easy to apply, and lasted a nice length of time. I think a lot of the shades included are on the more dupable side, but the silver lining is that this is a more affordable way to get a lot of those higher-end similar shades, though they have to be purchased as a set. I hope we’ll see some shades get added to the permanent range!

Tarte Poppy Picnic Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Poppy Picnic Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette ($38.00 for 0.41 oz.) contains six eyeshadows and one blush housed in a rectangular-shaped palette. It’s a warmer-toned set of matte neutrals paired with a frosted pink-coral blush. The colors work well together, and they were usable without primer, but Tarte’s formula here is one that will benefit from having the smoothness of a primer for the color to adhere to, for both better color payoff as well as easier blending, and then of course, longevity. Also, interesting thing to note is that this is priced the same as the Showstopper palette, but Poppy Picnic contains a lot less (0.41 oz. vs. 0.73 oz.).
