Too Faced Le Grand Chateau

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set
Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set ($49.00 for 1.46 oz.) includes three palettes, plus a travel-sized Better Than Sex Mascara. Each palette contains six eyeshadows and a face product (either a blush or bronzer). It’s a decent set with some hits and misses, and in general, there was just a dustiness/powderiness to some shades that resulted in either slightly sheerer color payoff or shorter wear time (things that a decent primer should fix quite well).

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.

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).

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).

Regal is described as a “velvet plum.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and plum and bronze sparkle.

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). MAC Play It Proper (LE, $22.00) is cooler (95% similar). Giorgio Armani No. 07 (P, $62.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Carousel (LE, $74.00) is less shimmery (90% 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 darker, more shimmery (90% similar). CoverGirl Medium Rose (P, $9.99) is warmer, more shimmery (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.

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 warmer, more shimmery (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 darker, more shimmery (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.

MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish formula is supposed to add “highlight to the face and body” with a “velvety soft” texture and “radiant finish.” Gold Deposit has noticeable sparkles in it, which gave the texture a more crumbly, gritty consistency–it just wasn’t as smooth as some of the Mineralize face products. It had semi-opaque color coverage that was easily applied more heavily or with a lighter hand to adjust the coverage. It has a metallic, high-shine finish that emphasize pores slightly on my skin, so it may be one that doesn’t appeal to everyone. My best tip is to apply with a fan brush, which will help you build up the shimmer better. The color lasted for seven and a half hours before starting to turn patchy.
