Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette

Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette
Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette

Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette ($20.83 for 0.36 oz.) includes a contouring powder, highlighter, and blush. It comes in a slim, “rose gold” cardboard palette where each shade is a good-size for travel but still large enough to accommodate many different-sized face brushes. The quality of the palette is nice, and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more aptly named highlighter, though this isn’t going to be the most universally-applicable palette, so I would have loved to have seen iterations of “rose gold” for darker skin tones, too.

Heavy Crown is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable, but the consistency was thinner and firmer in the pan (whereas the other shades were softer), so it was a little harder to grab color onto the brush as well as harder to blend on the skin. On me, this shade wore for seven and a half hours. Tarte Contour Soft (Tarteist) (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Medium Cocoa (P) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Light Contour (P) is cooler, darker (90% similar). NARS Talia (Contour) (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC Crevasse (LE) is darker (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Medium (P, $44.00) is darker (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Light (P, $44.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Shade (P) is darker (85% similar). Viseart Sculpting #1 (P) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Glowing Still is a bright, creamy white with a yellow sheen. It was richly pigmented with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that seemingly glows in the dark it’s so bright and white. I thought it would look ashy or chalky on me skin tone, but I was surprised at how much the sheen came through after blending and buffing the product into the skin–but it did lighten the area slightly, so it may suit lighter skin tones better. The highlighter started to fade after eight hours of wear. Anastasia Marshmallow (LE) is more muted (90% similar). Makeup Geek Electrify (P, $20.00) is more muted (90% similar). The Estee Edit Snowlit (LE) is cooler, more muted, less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Give In Take Blush I (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 2 Frozen Gold (P, $21.00) is more muted, darker, more shimmery (90% similar). NYX Ritualistic (P, $9.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Albatross (P, $29.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Colour Pop Perilune (LE, $8.00) is cooler, less pigmented (85% similar). Anastasia Sunburst (LE) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Palace Door is a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was soft, smooth, and dense with a moderate creaminess (though it is a powder!) that blends and diffuses nicely on the skin. I thought the amount of shimmer was going to be prove problematic on the skin, but it didn’t emphasize pores at all. It’s more of a highlighting blush on my skin tone, so it makes me think the palette might be better for those lighter than I. The blush wore well for eight hours before fading. MAC Nuanced (LE, $32.00) is warmer (90% similar). Becca Lychee/Opal (P, $27.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). MAC Talk of the Town (LE, $27.00) is cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Nude Rebellion (201) (LE, $8.99) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #4 (LE, $55.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Strapped (LE, $8.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Benefit CORALista (Palette) (P, $28.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Papa Don't Peach (LE) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Makeup Geek Daybreak (P, $20.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Romance (P, $10.00) is cooler, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). NYX Rose Gold (P, $6.50) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tarte Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette

Tarte Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette
Tarte Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette

Tarte Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette ($42.00 for 0.49 oz.) features two shimmery highlighters and one setting powder (center shade). According to Tarte, that setting powder is a “universal matte sand that brightens and corrects any darkness under the eyes.” I doubt that it is universally workable, as it is a pretty light shade. As I mentioned in the sneak peek, I had tremendous issues with the consistency of the center shade to the point where even I–a skeptic–think that there’s a manufacturing error in its creation, because when I try swatching it, it sounds like sandpaper as it is so dry. It just seems like someone forgot an ingredient or double-salted the batch; I don’t know if I’ve ever had a powder feel like this one does. Short of jabbing at it with a metal spatula, not much product comes off the surface. At $42, a center shade that is faulty at best, horrible at worst is just difficult to justify.

I would also have liked to see Tarte releasing two or three versions of this, because I don’t think they’re truly considering all skin tones with this palette at all. I like the highlighters, though they aren’t out-of-this-world.

Sunlight is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a lightly frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage with a lightly dusty, but blendable, consistency that didn’t look dry or powdery on the skin — there was just a slight dryness to the texture where the powder came off the surface easily but seemed to have less binder. The color lasted for seven hours before fading on me. Colour Pop Flexitarian (P, $8.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Smashbox Glow (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Daylight (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Gator Wings (LE) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Flush (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Watch Me (LE, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Becca Champagne Pop (P, $41.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Warm Glow (Left) (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Give In Take Blush I (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Sunburst (LE) is cooler, more shimmery (85% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Skylight (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Filtered Light is a light, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It’s incredibly dry, stiff, and chalky in the pan. The only way I was able to get enough product out of the pan to show up in a swatch was by scraping the surface with a metal spatula. It doesn’t sit well on the skin and can make areas look caky; I tried it as an under eye setting powder as well as all over. It did not seem to improve the wear of my base products, but that could very well be that it’s so difficult to actually apply and get enough product to stick to the skin. Cle de Peau Almond (16) (P, $55.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Lyric (P) is warmer, brighter, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Light Cocoa (P) is lighter (90% similar). Hourglass Surreal Light (LE, $45.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Moonlight is a light-medium, peachy gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It is more shimmery than Sunlight, and it has more color to it. I think it looks almost rosy-beige at times, particularly in more shadowy lighting, but filtered sunlight (not direct sunlight) makes it appear peachy. The consistency was fairly soft and smooth, and it blendd out easily on the skin without emphasizing pores. It wore well for seven and a half hours. Cover FX Moonlight (P, $34.00) is darker (95% similar). By Terry Light & Tan Vibes #3 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Faintly Fabulous (LE, $32.00) is darker (90% similar).

Hourglass Euphoric Strobe Light (P, $38.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Sweet Peach Illuminator (P) is darker (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Sun Light (LE) is darker (85% similar). Suqqu Yawakouki (05) (P, $34.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Bronze Me Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Bronze Me Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Bronze Me Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “warm bronze in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish–there’s a light sheen and very, very fine shimmer. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, blendable consistency that sat well on the skin and played well with bare skin as well as liquid foundation. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. Stila Sending My Love Bronzer (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Compassion (LE, $29.00) is cooler (90% similar).

ColourPop Flush’d Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rusty deepened peach in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark, orange-coral with hints of warm, red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that was fairly blendable but one of the less easily blended-out shades that I’ve tried in the formula. It’s best patted on with fingertips and lightly swept with the side of the finger for blending, but it didn’t apply well with a stippling brush for me. It wore for eight hours. Chanel Lumieres de Kyoto (LE, $70.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). The Estee Edit Coy Coral (02) (P, $28.00) is lighter (85% similar).

ColourPop Glo Up Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rich gold with flashes of golden copper.” It’s a muted, medium-dark bronze with warm, copper undertones and a frosted, golden sheen. There was something in it that was almost mauve-like applied. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly emollient consistency that was smooth and easily blended on the skin. The shimmer didn’t emphasize pores. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Cover FX Candlelight (P, $34.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (P, $46.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek Ignite (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Santos (LE, $8.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar).

Wet ‘n’ Wild Geometric Highlighting Powders

Wet 'n' Wild Desert Explorations Geometric Highlighting Powder
Wet ‘n’ Wild Desert Explorations Geometric Highlighting Powder

Wet ‘n’ Wild Geometric Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a new, limited edition highlighting formula for spring that will be available at local drugstores and mass retailers while supplies last. The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” with a “silky-smooth texture that is easy to blend.” The texture of the three powders is soft, slightly looser in the pan than ideal (some excess gets kicked up), with medium, buildable coverage and a pearly shimmer. All three shades lasted right around the seven-hour mark for me. They’re nice, and at the price point, some of the more flattering highlighters I’ve tried from the drugstore (often, they are too sparkly/metallic!). I wish Wet ‘n’ Wild would add these or something like it to their permanent range. Good luck hunting these down!

Wet ‘n’ Wild Desert Explorations Geometric Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a light, pastel pink with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize pores. The texture is slightly powdery to work with, but it didn’t look powdery when I applied it to my cheeks. It may add a hint of color on very fair skin tones. This shade wore for seven hours on me. Makeup Revolution Peach Lights (P, $6.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Play It Proper (LE, $22.00) is cooler, lighter (95% similar). NARS Devotee (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Laura Geller Charming Pink (P, $24.00) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Perles et Fantaisies (Right) (LE, $65.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Dior #002 (P, $56.00) is warmer, brighter, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Softly Does It (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Moonlight (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #01 (P, $39.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Devotion (P, $44.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Lancome Moonlight Rose (LE, $42.00) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Anastasia Starburst (LE) is warmer, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Anastasia Crushed Pearl (LE) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). NARS Adoration (Left) (P) is darker, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Sun Ceremony Geometric Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium, yellow gold with strong yellow tones (but no orange tones, so it looks almost like a “cool” gold) and a smooth, frosted shimmer. It blended out easily and applied with semi-opaque coverage that could be diffused or built-up for lesser or greater coverage as desired. The powder is a little powdery to work with, and it just made the skin look ever-so-slightly powdery when applied. A little extra buffing helped to work the powder into the skin and leave a pearly sheen behind instead (that didn’t emphasize pores). It wore for seven hours on me. Colour Pop School is Fun (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Burst (P) is lighter (95% similar). Smashbox Glow (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Noctum (LE) is warmer, more muted (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Bloom (LE, $80.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Watch Me (LE, $30.00)(90% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Lights (P, $6.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Cle de Peau Gold (12) (P, $55.00) is warmer, less shimmery (85% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals The Shining Moment (LE, $26.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Chanel Routes des Indes de Chanel Illuminating Powder (LE, $65.00) is warmer, darker, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Where the Dreamers Go Geometric Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a pink-tinged white with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. This was the most shimmery/metallic of the three. It had medium coverage that was buildable to opaque payoff if desired, but the lightly powdery, smooth texture made it easy to diffuse and blend on the skin. The shimmer didn’t emphasize pores either, which is always nice. This shade lasted for seven hours before fading. NARS Summer Dual Intensity Blush I (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Burberry No. 01 White (LE, $68.00) is warmer, more muted, less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Perles et Fantaisies (Left) (LE, $65.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Delice (78) (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). L'Oreal Ice (P, $12.99) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee (LE, $45.00) is more muted, less shimmery (90% similar). Cle de Peau Pastel (11) (P, $55.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NYX Ice Queen (P, $5.00) is brighter, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Trophy (LE, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Champagne Pink (LE) is warmer, more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Glowing Pink (001) (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit

Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit
Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit

Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit ($40.00 for 1.04 oz.) includes four warm-toned shades that range from pale, buttery gold to copper. Each shade is 0.26 oz. and can be removed from the palette, if desired, but they are currently only sold together (not sure if they will eventually be available as pans only). Presently, it is exclusive to Macy’s and the brand’s website. According to Anastasia, these are supposed to be “metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity” that can also be worn on the eyes. They are softer and silkier with a more finely-milled consistency compared to the Illuminators released a couple of months ago. These also have a finer shimmer and overall sheen that is less emphasizing of pores on the skin.

Sunburst is a light, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too powdery or too firm. It applied easily to the skin without emphasizing pores but giving a high shine finish. The color lasted for eight hours before fading on me. Anastasia Summer (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Glow (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Tarte Daylight (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar).

Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Golden Bronze is a medium-dark, golden bronze with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. This shade was intensely pigmented with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that blended out nicely. It didn’t emphasize pores for me, but it had a very metallic sheen, so it is by no means a subtle highlighter! On me, this highlighting bronzer wore for eight hours. Becca Topaz (P, $38.00) is darker (95% similar). Viseart Highlight #3 (P) is cooler, lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani No. 14 (P, $62.00) is less pigmented, less shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Hot Sand (LE) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Tarte Park Ave Princess (P) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Stila Bronze (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Goddess (P, $48.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 12 Copper (P, $21.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bubblyis a muted, light-medium golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It was slightly drier with a looser consistency, though it still blended well and luckily, it didn’t look dry or powdery applied. Again, the finish was quite metallic but did not emphasize pores (almost that “so reflective it looks smooth” effect). It lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). Burberry No. 02 Nude Gold (LE, $68.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Nightlight (LE, $20.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (95% similar).

Dripping in Gold is a light-medium, yellow gold with strong, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had great color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable consistency. The powder was easy to apply to the skin and diffuse along the edges. It didn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture, though it is a very high-shine finish where a little goes a long way. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. The Estee Edit 14K Glow (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #02 (P, $39.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior #003 (P, $56.00) is cooler, more shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Sunray (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar).

Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palettes

Burberry No. 02 Nude Gold Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palette
Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palettes

Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palette ($68.00 for 0.10 oz.) came out in two shades, and they have, apparently, sold out through Burberry’s website (that’s where I bought mine). I’m hopeful that it will–eventually!–make its way to other retailers that carry Burberry, but I’m not positive. They are both limited edition, though. The formula is supposed to be buildable and luminous. Both shades performed well with medium, buildable coverage with a luminous finish that was just shy of emphasizing the skin’s texture (for me). They wore for eight hours on me before fading.

Burberry No. 01 White Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palette ($68.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a crisp, cool-toned white with a frosted sheen. The texture was soft, smooth, and just a smidgen “dry” but didn’t look dry on the skin. It was blendable and easy to apply. The color lasted for eight hours on me. NARS Summer Dual Intensity Blush I (LE) is cooler, darker (95% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Snow (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Glowing Pink (001) (LE, $58.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Psychedelic (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Champagne Pink (LE) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Where the Dreamers Go (LE, $2.99) is cooler, brighter, more shimmery (90% similar). NYX Ice Queen (P, $5.00) is cooler, brighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Perles et Fantaisies (Left) (LE, $65.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Trophy (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever 1 Arctic White (P, $24.00) is cooler, less pigmented, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Burberry No. 02 Nude Gold Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palette ($68.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a slightly muted, light-medium gold with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that applied well, blended out easily, and stayed on the skin for eight hours before fading. Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Bubbly (LE) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Make a Sheen (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Cover FX Moonlight (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown 24 Karat (P, $46.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Bare End (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is warmer, brighter (85% similar). Tarte Gator Wings (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $24.00) is warmer, brighter, darker (85% similar).
