FORMULA SUMMARY | NYX’s newest blush formula is supposed to be a “high definition, lightweight blush that blends evenly” that is “vibrant and silky.” The texture tended to be on the more powdery side, but it sits well and doesn’t look powdery applied. Many shades have a more luminous finish to them where the shimmer is fine enough to create a glow, rather than a frosted finish (though a couple are quite shimmery). The formula blends fairly easily on the skin and has medium, buildable coverage with some being very pigmented right off the bat. The wear time is between seven and eight hours. Nude ‘tude is semi-sheer, buildable coverage with a really soft, silky texture that practically crumbled when a brush touched it, so there was a lot of excess powder in the pan. If you are very fair, you may find it easy to over-apply as a lot of product gets on the brush if you aren’t careful. The blush is finely-milled, though, which makes it easy to blend out on the skin, and it doesn’t look powdery on. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek & Leopard Pressed Pigment

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “true gold.” It’s a light-medium, yellow gold with a pearly shimmer-sheen finish–pretty much just as the brand described it. The texture was smooth, creamy, and a cinch to blend out on the skin. I love that the formula can be used over foundation without disturbing your base products. The coverage is semi-sheer to opaque, depending on how much you apply initially or with what, which is in line with what the formula is supposed to be. The color was going strong after ten hours of wear. Makeup Revolution Gold Addict (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced You Light Up My Life (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Jubilation (Left) (P) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). NARS Navagio Beach (LE, $39.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

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

ColourPop Leopard Super Shock Pressed Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “vivid violet blue.” It’s a meidum-dark purple with cool, blue undertones and a satin-matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, and it was blendable along the edges, but the texture was dry and prone to crumbling when I applied too much pressure on it. Pressed Pigments are “not intended for the eye area,” so keep that in mind 🙂 I wore it as a blush, and it lasted for nine hours. Colour Pop Liaison (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). LORAC Ultraviolet (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Urban (P) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Daddy (P, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar).

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette
bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette ($39.00 for 0.65 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows, two blushes, one highlighter, and one bronzer. The palette has $56.47 worth of eyeshadow, $15.33 worth of blush, $7.20 worth of highlighter, and $8.00 worth of bronzer for a total value of $87.00. I liked it, though it’s not quite as impressive as most of the Ready palettes are (they are nearly perfect), and one aspect that I really appreciated was that one row of eyeshadows was warmer and one row was cooler (though not truly cool-toned). The palette is also slim, so it doesn’t take up a lot of space.

Natural is described as a “light buttery peach.” It’s a light, yellowed beige with a semi-matte finish. It had so-so color coverage, but the texture was firmer and thinner compared to the other shades in the palette (and from the Ready line overall). The color lasted for 10 hours (Ready formula is marketed as a 12-hour formula). This version is a lot lighter and much less warm compared to the previous version I tried. Sephora Walking in the Sand (P, $10.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Vespertine (P) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Framed (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Barefoot in the Grass (LE) is more muted (95% similar). bareMinerals Magnate (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Inglot #330 (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay ABC Gum (P, $19.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Lace Teddy (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Cream (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar).

Becca Ombre Nudes #1 (P) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cognac is described as a “gilded bronze.” It’s a medium, golden copper bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented, rich and buttery in texture, blended effortlessly, and lasted twelve hours on me. Make Up For Ever ME644 Iced Brown (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Radar (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Ethereal (P) is warmer (90% similar).

Namaste is described as a “sandy brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray and warm undertones paired with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, silky texture that wasn’t too powdery and blended nicely on the skin. It lasted for eleven hours on me. Sleek MakeUP Entwined (P, $9.99) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Dark Brown (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Tails & Top Hats #2 (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

500 Thread Count is described as an “airy pink.” It’s a very light, warm-toned beige with a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency that was just a hair on the powdery side (use less and it’s not as noticeable!). The color faded after ten and a half hours. Urban Decay Thirteen (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Sephora Flagstone (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Super Mom (LE) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Romp is described as an “iridescent lilac.” It’s a muted, medium-dark silvery purple with cool undertones and warmer, gold shimmer paired with a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a very soft, smooth consistency that glided across the skin like butter. On my skin, the color lasted a full twelve hours. The version in the palette seems a bit more metallic, and almost cooler in tone due to the stronger sheen, than the one I had before. Clinique Lavish Lilac (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Inglot #420 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Pandemonium (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). YSL Taupe Drop (03) (P, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Flash is described as a “matte purple clay.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation, but it could have been more pigmented, though it is buildable. The consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled, so it was easy to blend out, and as it wasn’t powdery, it didn’t sheer out too readily. The color started to fade after ten and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Plum (Contour) (P) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Misty Mauve (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Inglot #358 (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Forbidden (P, $9.99) is darker, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Wisteria (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Regal is described as a “velvet plum.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and plum and bronze sparkle. The texture was a little drier compared to the other shades, perhaps due to the larger sparkle in it, and it was semi-opaque. This shade wore well for ten hours. Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #1 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Pewter (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Crystal Beige (LE, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

The Summer Fling is described as a “creamy peach.” It’s a light-medium peach with a semi-matte finish.

The Skinny Dip is described as a “light tan.” It’s a medium, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a faint golden pearl. The bronzer had good pigmentation with a smooth, thinner texture that was blendable on the skin. The sheen is very subtle, so it didn’t emphasize pores. On me, the color lasted for eight hours.

bareMinerals The Royal Court Ready Face Color Trio

bareMinerals The Royal Court Ready Face Color Trio
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).

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!).

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).

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.
