S310

Make Up For Ever S310 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and diffused along the edges with minimal blending motions. Though it is listed as a Sculpting shade, it will obviously not work as a contouring shade for all skin tones, but the formula seemed in line with the other powders, so it could easily be used as a blush. The consistency was smooth to the touch with no powderiness, but it was denser, and I would recommend a moderately dense brush when working with it (I had no trouble using softer brushes with it, however). This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.

Overview of the Formula

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush). There are three finishes–matte, shimmer, and pearl but was less obvious. In fact, the majority of the “matte” shades were more like semi-matte or natural matte where there were no distinctive shimmer particles but they seemed to take on the natural finish of the skin, which gave the “mattes” a particularly seamless finish on the skin but might be dewier on oilier skin types than desired. None of the 34 shades available were frosted or metallic except three of the highlighters (H100, H106, H312).

The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, depending largely on the shade, though they were always buildable if they were not opaque in a single layer. Some of the deeper, more matte shades were less forgiving and took more effort to diffuse and blend, even when I used a lighter hand or a more feathery brush. The texture was smooth, velvety, and moderately dense without any powderiness or dustiness in the pan. The formula has lasted between eight and ten hours on me.

You can view swatches of all of the blushes, all of the highlighters, and all of the sculpting powders in the Swatch Gallery.

S400

Make Up For Ever S400 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had the type of matte finish that seemed to take on the finish of the skin itself, so it appeared more like a “natural matte” to my eye than a flat matte finish. There was mostly opaque color payoff but was forgiving that it could be applied with a lighter hand or diffused a lot for sheerer coverage. The consistency was dense but smooth, blendable and worked best with a moderately dense blush or contour brush. It’s a sculpting shade but could surely be used as a blush if desired. The color lasted well for almost nine hours on me.

Overview of the Formula

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush).

S114

Make Up For Ever S114 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium brown with soft, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable, with a smooth, dense texture. It’s a lighter shade, so for contouring, I could see it working on light to light-medium skin tones, and it could also work as a subtle, brown blush. The powder blended out seamlessly on the skin and took little work to get it there. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush).

S214

Make Up For Ever S214 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had more of a “natural matte” finish where the finish did not appear dry, flat, or truly matte–it looked like “my skin but better.” What I liked was that it did not appear to darken on the skin over time, which more matte powders can do as they interact with oils found on the skin.

I suspect this shade, while listed as a Sculpting powder, is designed for draping or using a more blush-like hue to add dimension to the face. For those who admire it as a blush, nothing stops you from using it as such, as the formula felt and worked just like the B-named shades as far as I could tell! The texture was smooth, velvety, and dense, so there was no powderiness in the pan and will require a moderate touch or moderately dense brush to get good color payoff (similar to their eyeshadows but smoother, overall). It had good pigmentation–just shy of truly full coverage–that applied evenly and blended out easily on my skin. It lasted for nine hours on me before fading.

Overview of the Formula

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush). There are three finishes–matte, shimmer, and pearl but was less obvious. In fact, the majority of the “matte” shades were more like semi-matte or natural matte where there were no distinctive shimmer particles but they seemed to take on the natural finish of the skin, which gave the “mattes” a particularly seamless finish on the skin but might be dewier on oilier skin types than desired.

Zoeva Basic Moment Cheek Palette ($16.80 for 0.39 oz.) includes three cheek products–a contour powder, blush, and highlighter–in a slim, cardboard palette. The powders are supposed to be “incredibly pigmented.” The highlighter was the “miss” in the palette, as it was drier in texture and had sheerer coverage, while the blush and contour powders were pigmented and blendable.

Moons of Saturn

MAC Moons of Saturn Full Face Kit ($40.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes two Cream Colour Bases and one Sculpting Powder. The Cream Colour Base formula is supposed to have sheer, buildable coverage with a dewy finish that lasts for “eight hours on face and body” and has “lasting wear for hours on eyes. I tend to prefer Cream Colour Bases on cheeks for better wear and application, but for use on eyes, they’re best used as an all-over wash of color or on the brow bone to add shine. I think this particular kit worked well together, though I’m expecting that the more orange-toned powder to be less-than-ideal for many as it is very warm and orange.
