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). KIKO 105 Dark Rose (P, $12.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Capri (P, $58.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Rose Bronze (P, $45.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Alluring Rose (P, $34.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Plum Ombre (LE, $55.00) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Golden Gate Matte (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Seduce (P, $28.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). bareMinerals The Love Letter (LE, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tarte Elevated (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Cinematic (P, $23.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Kat Von D Piaf (Shade) (P) is brighter, lighter (85% similar). Surratt Beauty La Vie En Rose (P, $32.00) is warmer, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Tarte Impress (LE, $28.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tarte Unearthed (LE, $28.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Fetish (P, $26.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Tarte Risque (P, $28.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). bareMinerals The Close Call (P, $22.00) 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 (P, $56.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Camelia de Chanel (LE, $70.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Champagne Pop (P, $38.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty The Afternooner (Highlighter) (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Sun Light (LE) is darker (90% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $24.00) is warmer, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Colour Pop Electric Slide (DC, $8.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar).

Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer

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. Hourglass Mood Exposure (P, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Baby Love (P, $26.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Exposed (P, $28.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Daybreak (503) (P, $46.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). CoverGirl Medium Rose (P, $9.99) is lighter (90% similar).

Makeup Revolution Make Love Instead (P, $5.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Cheeky Bugger (LE, $22.00) is brighter, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Makeup Geek Heart Throb (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). Laura Geller Boysenberry (P, $28.00) is brighter, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). Tarte Celebrated (LE, $28.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Estee Lauder Sensuous Rose (LE, $28.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (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
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 cooler, brighter, darker (90% similar). MAC Style (P, $22.00) is brighter (85% similar). NYX Rose Gold (P, $6.50) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar).

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.

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit
Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit ($40.00 for 1.04 oz.) includes four ultra-shimmery highlighters in warmer hues. The formula is consistent in the palette and also consistent with the other two, previously-released Glow Kits. I wish they had gone darker on both of the lighter shades–Summer and Moonstone–and differentiated better between the two, as they look quite similar even heavily applied but almost the same when diffused/sheered out (more like how typical highlighters are applied).

Bronzed is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that was fairly blendable and easy to use. The texture was almost too dense on the skin, which made blending less effortless compared to some highlighters, but it didn’t require too much extra time to blend it out. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading. Cover FX Candlelight (P, $34.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (P, $46.00) is cooler (95% similar). theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cover FX Candlelight (P, $38.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Ignite (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Glo Up (LE, $8.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Sunlight (LE, $20.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Avalon (LE, $8.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Looxi Beauty Divine (P, $7.50) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Strip Bronzer (-) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Laura Mercier Seduction (P, $44.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Disney by Sephora Golden Sands (LE, $55.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $45.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Summer is a light, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It wasn’t quite as high-shine as Bronzed, but it’s not a subtle highlight! It was richly pigmented with a very smooth, finely-milled texture that blended out easily. I noticed very slight emphasis of my skin’s texture when applied with about medium coverage. The highlighter wore well for just over eight hours. Tarte Daylight (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Sunburst (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Watch Me (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Tarte Burst (P) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Lights (P, $6.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 13 Ivory (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 2 Frozen Gold (P, $21.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Electrify (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Give In Take Blush I (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Anastasia White Sand (LE) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Smashbox Glow (LE)(90% similar). Makeup Geek Midnight Sun (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Marshmallow (LE) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tourmaline is a muted, medium-dark taupe-bronze with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. Of the four, this one emphasized pores the most noticeably to me, and it’s one that needs a light hand to minimize the impact on the texture of the skin. The color payoff was good, while the texture was smooth in the pan and extremely easy to blend on the skin. I was able to get eight hours of wear out of this shade. Estee Lauder Modern Mercury (LE, $65.00) is cooler, lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Nude Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop The Golden Child (LE, $8.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Riviera (P, $28.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Moonstone is a light, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a slightly sparkly, metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a fairly smooth, blendable texture–it wasn’t quite as creamy or as buttery compared to the other shades in the palette. It applied easily with a nice, diffused edge accomplished without trouble, and it seemed to be so bright applied that it didn’t emphasize my pores. Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Daylight (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Crystal Glare (P, $6.99) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Moonbeam (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette ($45.00 for 0.64 oz.) contains three cheek colors and nine eyeshadows. The formula on some of the more matte shades was very, very silky and soft, but they kicked up a lot of excess powder in the pan and often sheered out when blended–more so than some of Tarte’s past palettes. I noticed that some of the darker shades seemed to become more muted just a few minutes after applying, so it felt like I had to really pat and pack on some shades to get definition and depth out of them. I think the colors complement each other well, and I liked that there were some plummy hues thrown in with warmer, more orange-toned shades. I also felt like the cheek colors actually worked with the palette and its different color combinations, so the scheme is very cohesive. The palette is slated to be fully released on June 6th!

Sweet Tea is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish tones and a mostly matte finish, but there were a few gold sparkles in the product. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky feel in the pan, which was fairly blendable and lasted for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Happy Hour (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain #02 (P, $53.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Lush Light Bronze (LE, $28.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Guerlain #03 (P, $53.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Scone (LE, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar). Stila Sending My Love Bronzer (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is lighter (80% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Nights (P, $48.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Does This Thing Really Work? is a muted, pinky-plum with subtle, cool undertones and gold sparkle that sits over a matte base. The sparkle doesn’t bind well with the color itself, so it doesn’t tend to stick well to the skin; the few bits that do migrate and move throughout the day or eventually fall off. The texture was smooth and soft, but it was somewhat powdery and looked a little dry on my normal-to-dry skin. It lasted for eight hours (not the 12-hours promised by the formula, though eight hours is similar to wear I get with most blush formulas). Estee Lauder Rebel Rose (P, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Rose (P, $26.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). MAC Petulant (LE, $22.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Cruel Intentions (LE, $8.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Outlaw (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Debbie Harry Blush (LE, $30.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $28.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay TMI (P, $26.00) is cooler, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). KIKO 112 Light Plum (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals The Love Letter (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Oasis (P, $30.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar).

Tarte Empowering (LE, $28.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). MAC Subtle Breeze (LE, $27.00) is brighter (85% similar). Smashbox Plum (LE) is warmer, darker, more shimmery (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gator Wings is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic, glittery finish. There are large glitter particles in this one, and they show up on the face a lot, but they do not look even, so sometimes they catch the light and look sparkly, while other times they don’t and look more like specks of dirt on the skin. This emphasized my skin’s natural texture quite a bit, so if that’s a deal-breaker, I would recommend using a very light touch and a fan brush, then tapping powder over it to minimize the effect. It wore well for seven and a half hours before turning patchy. MAC Gypsum (LE, $21.00) is less pigmented, less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is brighter (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Born to Dazzle (LE, $26.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Looxi Beauty Bombshell (P, $7.50) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Sunlight (P) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever 3 Gold Champagne (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown 24 Karat (P, $46.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Butterscotch (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Burberry No. 02 Nude Gold (LE, $68.00) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Bloom (LE, $80.00) is darker (85% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Becca Prosecco Pop (LE, $38.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Illamasqua Rush (P) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Laura Mercier Addiction (P, $44.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

#SFS is a light-medium, muted, peachy-pink with warm, golden shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too dusty or too firm. It wore well for seven hours before fading on me. Too Faced Christmas Blend (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Future (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Last Sin (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #1 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Kylie Cosmetics Seashell (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Hello Kitty Apple Pie (LE) is lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Custom Made (LE) is lighter (80% similar). Tarte Glitzy Blitzen (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). Laura Mercier Pink Haze (LE, $23.00) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). Make Up For Ever I520 Pinky Sand (P, $21.00) is lighter (80% similar). Stila Metallic Peach (LE, $18.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Natural Peaches is a muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff, but the consistency was so soft that it was dusty, which led to it sheering out when it was applied to the skin. This would benefit from a primer, as it would give it a better surface to adhere to. It wore well for seven hours. Too Faced Millennial (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Toffee (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Spread the Love (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S714 Bisque (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Soft Peach (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Laura Mercier Ginger (P, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S718 Salmon (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Make Up For Ever S710 Peach (P, $21.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dogman is a medium-dark red-brown with warm undertones and a dash of fine gold sparkle. The sparkles dust away almost immediately upon application, so I would consider this a matte brown overall. The formula was very smooth and finely-milled, but it kicks up excess product and sheers out on the skin. I noticed that it also faded after a few minutes to more of a muted brown, whereas initially it had more of a warm, burnt orange appearance. After that initial change, the color was good for seven hours. Zoeva Cheap Bar (P) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Top Notch (P, $5.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Sassy Bun is a medium copper with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had a looser consistency in the pan and was a bit drier to work with, so some of the shimmer seemed to separate from the base color when I blended it out. I think it would be better over a primer or with a slightly dampened brush. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Viseart Minx #4 (P) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Sippy Sippy is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and gold sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkle separates from the base color, so applied, it looks mostly matte, if not entirely matte. The sparkles were trapped in the brush or fell out when I blended out the color. It had a really soft, silky, and finely-milled feel to the powder itself, but it did sheer out against bare skin. It lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Choco Cake (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Ithaca (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Haunting is a muted, light-medium mauve with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was dusty and prone to sheering out on the skin. I don’t think this works well without a good primer, and then it should be patted in place but minimal blending should occur or else the shimmer pulls away from the base color. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably. Clarins Silver Pink (05) (P, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Smashbox Aglow (P) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar).

Uncommon is a medium taupe-brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was excellent, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too soft or too firm.

Mancat is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish.
