Bobbi Brown Telluride Highlighting Powder

Bobbi Brown Telluride Highlighting Powder ($46.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-drark rosy plum with warm undertones and a frosted finish. Lancome Rosegold Lights (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz (P, $46.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Rose Gold (LE, $46.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Afternoon Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Tarte Muse (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Surratt Beauty De Cherubique (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar).

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

It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” This is the third (and last!) shade that was released, and it seemed to be the most shimmery and deepest in color (this is likely to be more of a highlighting blush on very fair to medium skin tones but work particularly well as a highlighter on darker complexions). It had medium, buildable coverage paired with a soft, smooth, but denser, consistency that blended out effortlessly. I did not feel like this emphasized my pores, but I think it might if you feel like your pores are larger/more noticeable in general. The highlighter wore well for eight hours on my normal-to-dry skin.

It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The texture was very soft and smooth, while it had a firmer feel to it overall, so it seems like a product that would take awhile to get through, but the firmness didn’t make it hard to apply or get color payoff out of the powder. It had medium, buildable coverage, which is in line with the brand’s description of the formula. Sunset Glow applied easily to the skin as it was quite blendable, while it wore well for eight hours before I noticed it fading along the edges.

It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The texture is dense, firm but not difficult to use, with a very smooth, finely-milled consistency that blends out effortlessly. It is a stronger highlighter, so if you prefer very subtle glow, it might not be the right product for you; it is possible to get a very, very light sheen, but it definitely lends itself to a more moderate sheen when applied with a medium-hand and typical highlighter brush. The highlighter had medium, buildable color coverage. It didn’t emphasize pores on me, and it added a little color to my skin tone (light-medium). The highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Highlighter

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Highlighter
Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Highlighter

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Blush ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is muted, medium rosy mauve with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This shade has been part of the permanent range for awhile, but it is being repromoted alongside the three new shades, and I thought it was a good excuse to update photos/swatches of it as well as pull new dupes. The Amazonian Clay Blush formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear along with a “supremely soft” texture. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) with a dusty, lightly powdery consistency that does kick up a noticeable amount of powder in the pan, but it didn’t appear dry or chalky on the skin. The color wore well for eight hours, which is in line with most formulas for me, but it is below the length claimed. Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Seduce (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Golden Gate Matte (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Rose Bronze (P, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Capri (P, $58.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Plum Ombre (LE, $55.00) is warmer (90% similar). KIKO 105 Dark Rose (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Alluring Rose (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). bareMinerals The Love Letter (LE, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tarte Elevated (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Impress (LE, $28.00) is cooler (85% similar). Surratt Beauty La Vie En Rose (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Piaf (Shade) (P) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Fetish (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). LORAC Cinematic (P, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Unearthed (LE, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Risque (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Strip Blush (P) is warmer (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Highlighter ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too loose in the pan, while it didn’t kick up powder like most of the Blush range, which was a nice surprise. I think the texture is more refined and smoother with this highlighter formula than the blush formula. It produced a nice glow to the skin without looking metallic or overtly shimmery, so I think anyone who likes a light to moderate sheen may find this to their liking. The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours on me (but not the 12 promised!). Dior #001 (LE, $65.00) is darker (95% similar). Becca Champagne Pop (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Sun Light (LE) is darker (90% similar). Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty The Afternooner (Highlighter) (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Electric Slide (DC, $8.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar).

Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) contains a pink-peach highlighter, mid-tone rose pink blush, and reddish-brown bronzer that create a a muted, medium rosy mauve with warm undertones and a luminous finish when swirled together. CoverGirl Medium Rose (P, $9.99) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Daybreak (503) (P, $46.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Mood Exposure (P, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Exposed (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Golden Gate (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Spell Bound (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Baby Love (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Make Love Instead (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Laura Geller Boysenberry (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Tarte Celebrated (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Heart Throb (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Cheeky Bugger (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Estee Lauder Sensuous Rose (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s designed to be used individually or altogether for “the perfect sun-kissed look.” The powder is described as “finely-milled” and the finish is “natural-looking.” It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan, so it was easy to get color onto the brush while still being nearly effortless to diffuse and soften on the skin. The shimmer produced a smooth, luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize pores but wasn’t so subtle that it was hard to see. The only downside was that there was some excess product kicked up in the pan, which made it harder to use the shades individually as inevitably one shade’s powdery bits would wind up on another, so it is a product I think is better for someone who doesn’t require them to apply as three distinct shades. On me, the color wore well for eight hours before I noticed fading.

Kevyn Aucoin Siena The Neo-Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin Siena The Neo-Bronzer ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) consists of a gradient of light, peachy-beige; muted coral; and subdued brown with reddish undertones that swirls and creates a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a luminous finish. Surratt Beauty Parfait (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). MAC Style (P, $22.00) is brighter (85% similar). Revlon Racy Rose (008) (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Romance (P, $9.99) is more shimmery (85% similar). NYX Rose Gold (P, $6.50) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s designed to be used individually or altogether for “the perfect sun-kissed look.” The powder is described as “finely-milled” and the finish is “natural-looking.” The powder was very soft, smooth, and blendable, while kicking up a bit of excess powder in the pan, but it didn’t look dusty or dry on the skin. It seemed denser and more refined compared to some of Kevyn Aucoin’s more matte blushes. The texture sat well on the skin and yielded a noticeable sheen but wasn’t overtly shimmery nor did it emphasize pores or my skin’s natural texture. It had good pigmentation that could easily be applied with a lighter hand for a more diffused, sheerer look, if desired. On me,
it wore well for eight hours before fading. It’s easier to use it two shades at a time, rather than one, but it is possible to use just one shade at a time with most highlighter brushes.
