Too Faced Be Merry, Be Bright Makeup Palettes ($45.00 for 1.28 oz.) features two palettes, one titled Be Merry, the other titled Be Bright. Each palette has six eyeshadows and two cheek colors. Each eyeshadow contains 0.06 oz. of product, while each cheek color contains 0.14 oz. The two palettes come in a zippered makeup bag with a full-sized Lash Injection mascara. The approximate value of this palette is $285, with a breakout of: $216 worth of eyeshadow, $48 worth of cheek products, and $21 worth of mascara.  Overall, the Be Merry, Be Bright Makeup palette set is quite nice, and the Be Merry palette has solid pigmentation across the board with no troublesome shades; the “worst” was Chocolate Moon, which was a little drier compared to the other shades.  The worst performer in Be Merry was Mauvelous, which was prone to fall out and sheerer.  The majority of the products wore well, with the eyeshadows ranging from eight to nine hours on average with Mauvelous was the only one that had fall out during wear.

Chanel Accent (84) Joues Contraste Powder Blush

Chanel Accent (84) Joues Contraste Powder Blush ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “luminous pink beige.” It’s a softened, medium-dark rosy brown with neutral-warm undertones and a soft shimmer finish. The finish seemed more shimmery than a satin, but it doesn’t look like a full-on frost. Kevyn Aucoin Natura is warmer, lighter. NARS Douceur is lighter. MAC Baby Don’t Go is much lighter. MAC Stylish Me is darker, warmer. MAC Superb is warmer, more frosted. Burberry Earthy is browner, less shimmery. See comparison swatches.
