Double-Gleam

MAC Double-Gleam Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen.

The Extra Dimension Skinfinish formula now features four, permanent shades–yay! (Finally!) According to MAC, it’s a highlighter that “lasts up to ten hours” with “prismatic reflections.” Double-Gleam was richly pigmented but could easily be sheered out or used with a less dense brush for a more moderate glow. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable, so it was easy to apply and work with on the face to highlight on cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, and so forth. The shimmer in Double-Gleam seemed finer and smoother compared to past iterations in this formula, and I think it ended up being more forgiving on the skin overall. It has a much stronger sheen to it, so when worn at full coverage, it did emphasize my skin’s natural texture slightly. The highlighter started to fade after eight hours on me.

Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Palette

Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Palette

Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Palette ($45.00 for 1.06 oz.) includes four highlighters, one cream contour, and one powder contour housed in a soft, velvety black cardboard palette. The formula of the powder products was denser, particularly for the highlighters, so there was not a lot of excess powder kicked up in the pan, and it made me less concerned about powder getting into the cream contour, but it’s definitely a possibility. The four highlighters were frosted to metallic, and they will be most suitable for someone who likes a shiny, more metallic highlight (rather than a subtle one). The cream contour has a more shadowy look and feel to it, while the powder contour is warmer and more bronze-like. The weakest product was the powder contour, as it was dustier and not as blendable as the other shades. It’s a good palette if you like highlighting and contouring and don’t already have an arsenal of options in your posession already.

Lit is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a frosted, golden shimmer-sheen finish. It was very pigmented with a denser consistency that was fairly smooth but had some looser sparkle to it when I swatched it. When I applied it using a highlighting brush on my cheeks, I didn’t notice any looseness in the pan. I fully expected this to accentuate the look of my pores and my skin’s natural texture, but it was shiny without doing so! It wore well for eight hours before fading on me.

Fire is a medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It was fully opaque in a single pass, though the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable that it could easily be sheered out if desired. The finish on this one did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture, but it didn’t hide it either (I felt like Lit was so reflective and fine in pearl that it almost made my skin appear smoother). On my skin tone, this worked as a highlighter as well as a highlighting bronzer, and it wore for eight hours. Anastasia 143 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Shade is a muted, medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a soft sheen. The texture was lightly tacky, creamy with moderate slip but did not stay tacky over time. It dried down after a couple of minutes for the most part, but it remained fairly blendable and easy to work with on the skin. It lasted nicely for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably on me. Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Medium (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Cover FX Sunkissed (P, $38.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Strobe is a light beige with warm, peachy undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, silky, and smooth texture that was moderately dense but not stiff or difficult to use with a blush/highlighting brush. The powder blended out beautifully on the skin and left behind a high-shine glow that did not emphasize my skin’s texture. On my skin, the highlighter started to fade after eight hours of wear. Too Faced Blinded by the Light (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Glazed (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

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

Stunner is a light, peachy-pink with a cooler pink tone and warmer gold shimmer. It sometimes looked silvery against my skin tone, but other times, it was a warmer, peachy kind of color. The color was beautiful on, as it was highly reflective and easy to apply, but there was slight emphasis of my skin’s natural texture and my pores as this shade had a much more metallic finish. The highlighter was intensely pigmented, and the color stayed on well for eight hours. Tarte Stunner (P, $28.00)(100% similar). Jouer Rose Quartz (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Cover FX Celestial (P, $42.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). The Estee Edit 1st Light (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar).

Lancome Moonlight Rose (LE, $42.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sculpt is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, which was buildable to fully opaque coverage in two layers. The consistency was thinner and more powdery compared to the other shades, though it felt very silky and finely-milled. It blended fairly well on the skin but wasn’t as effortless compared to the highlighters in the palette. I noticed fading with this shade after eight hours of wear. Illamasqua Steal (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Sculpting #2 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). NARS Paloma Contour (P, ) is cooler (90% similar).

Marc Jacobs Beauty Object of Desire Face & Eye Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty Object of Desire Face & Eye Palette
Marc Jacobs Beauty Object of Desire Face & Eye Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty Object of Desire Face & Eye Palette ($69.00 for oz.) includes three cheek colors and six eyeshadows. They are in a gold, zippered case with a large, black tassel. As far as traveling goes, the upside is that it is rather cushioned and shouldn’t break easily, but it is thicker than most palettes. Some of the shades were decent, others were below average; it’s not a palette that seems worthy of splurging on for the holidays as a result. Those with several neutral palettes may find that this palette is rather repetitive. I did like that the cheek colors coordinated with the eye products, at least.

Tantric is a medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, and on the thinner side, but it wasn’t dusty or hard to blend out on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. MAC Golden Rinse (LE, $35.50) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Capri Coast (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Matte Bronze (P, $27.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Java Sun (LE, $65.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Tarte Provocative (LE, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Saffron Sun (LE, $65.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Faux Tan Matte (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). Hourglass Nude Bronze Light (P, $50.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked on the Run Bronzer (-, ) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Going Native (Bronzer) (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Tan-tastic (LE, $49.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NARS Casino (LE, $40.00) is darker (85% similar). Too Faced Gingerbread (LE, ) is darker (85% similar). Viseart Ablaze (Bronzer) (P, ) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Guerlain Natural / Brunettes (03) (P, $53.00) is brighter (85% similar). Physicians Formula Bronze (P, $14.99) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Original (P, $50.00) is lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Sweet Peach Bronzer (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Soleil Afterglow (Bronzer) (LE, ) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exhibitionist is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was incredibly soft and silky, but as a result, it was also more powdery and prone to sheering out on the skin. It was more buildable than I anticipated, so I think it applied well and unless you wanted intense coverage in one pass, I don’t think most would notice the sheerness in practice. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Tarte Deco (LE, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). The Estee Edit Purr Pink (03) (P, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Kash (P, ) is more muted (95% similar). LORAC Underrated (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek XOXO (P, $10.00) is more muted (95% similar).

Tarte Irreplaceable (LE, $28.00) is darker (85% similar). Chanel Vibration (270) (P, $45.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make a Sheen is a light gold with warm undertones and a chunky, frosted shimmer. The texture was drier and looser with a real noticeable grit from the shimmer/sparkle in it. The color applied decently to the skin, but it was hard to even out and looked patchy up-close. It lasted for seven hours on me. Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Authentic (LE, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lights On is a light, yellow gold with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a really soft, silky texture that felt finely-milled and was just a touch powdery. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours on me. theBalm #38 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop High Tide (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Lancome Filigree (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Viseart Champs-Elysees (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #1 (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

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

Candlelight is a medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. The consistency felt soft and smooth, but it was looser and thin, which made it dustier to work with and prone to sheering out on the lid. The color wore for just over seven hours on me. Anastasia Bellini (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Atelier Honey Brown #2 (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Penny Lane (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Dimmer is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It was semi-opaque with a smooth, silky texture but ran thin and was better over a primer. It wore well for seven hours. Chanel Entrelacs #2 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Glasswing (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M646 Latte (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Violet Hour is a muted, medium lavender with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, but the dustier texture made it darken on the skin, which made it harder to blend out as it would stick strongly to some areas but less to others. This shade wore well for seven hours on me. LORAC Overcast (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). IT Cosmetics Romance (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Dusty Mauve (LE, $19.00) is brighter (85% similar). Lancome Rich History (LE, $19.00) is cooler (85% similar). IT Cosmetics Enchanting (P, ) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Twilight is a muted, dark plum with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had a firmer consistency in the pan, which led to difficulty blending and diffusing the color on the lid as it would look patchy. It had decent, buildable coverage, and the color itself started to fade after seven hours of wear. Anastasia Aubergine (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Rich Core (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 19 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Guerlain Rose Barbare #4 (P, ) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

In the Dark is a dark black with warm, brown undertones and flecks of copper and bronze sparkle. It had good color payoff with a soft, finely-milled texture that was a little powdery but dense enough that it didn’t sheer out immediately on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me, but the sparkles did not bind with the base color, so there was some fall out over time (a lot of it didn’t even make it to the lid to begin with). MAC Beyond Gorgeous (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Blackjack (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Night Clubbing (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector's Makeup Case
Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case ($59.00 for 1.59 oz.) includes 24 eyeshadows, four cheek colors, miniature size Glossy Lip Paint, black liquid eyeliner, and miniature sized mascara. It’s another middling mega set from Tarte-it’s disappointing with some real misses in the palette. There were only a few shades that were actually good. The set itself is contained within a zippered case, but it is pretty bulky for traveling (and storing). The best part about the set were the punny art-inspired names.

Moment is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a fine, golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) with a slightly firm texture in the pan.

Glitter Glue is a light beige with warm undertones and a glittery finish.

Nudes is a light-medium beige with a mostly matte finish. The texture was incredibly stiff and had such a hard press in the pan that it was difficult to get any color out of it.

Silhouette is a dark black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. There seemed to be a slight sheen to the finish, which kept it from being totally matte.

Stained Glass is a deep, reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was rather thin and dusty, so the color had a tendency to sheer out easily, but it was also one that turned patchy as I blended it. The performance was better over primer, but it was still harder to blend out. It lasted for seven hours on me. MAC All's Rosy (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar).

I Louvre It is a light-medium mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was so firmly pressed in the pan that it was difficult to get color payoff out of it without digging at it with a metal spatula or the end of my brush (the pointed end). It wore for four and a half hours–from what I could determine. MAC Malt (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Becca Cordial (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

Obvi is a medium, peachy-brown with warm undertones and a fine, white pearl. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly but some color sat in lip lines, which became more noticeable as time went on. The gloss lasted for three hours, was lightly moisturizing, and comfortable to wear. (I reviewed this previously here and did not retest.)

Algenist Drop & Glow Luminizing Duo

Algenist Drop & Glow Luminizing Duo
Algenist Drop & Glow Luminizing Duo

Algenist Drop & Glow Luminizing Duo ($22.00 for 0.46 fl. oz.) contains two miniature size liquid highlighters in a gold and pink shade. The Reveal Concentrated Luminizing Drops formula is supposed to be a liquid highlighter that gives a “soft focus, illuminated radiance” for a subtle effect. It can be used alone or mixed with other products (moisturizer, primer, foundation, and so forth) on face and body. There are three shades in the permanent range, so this set gives you two of those to try. I really liked this set, and it’s what I wished to see from Cover FX (side note: Algenist’s formula is much, much finer and less metallic on the skin in comparison; more comparable to Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheers), because liquid highlighters can go a long way, so the full sized bottles are often too large and subsequently, rather pricey.

The formula was thin without being watery. It yielded a subtle highlight and luminosity wherever I applied it, which I think looks best in person but tends to get muted on camera. I also had no trouble mixing either shade into my foundation or moisturizer for a slightly dewier finish, and I didn’t feel like they really tinted or changed the color of my foundation, though I am light-medium and neither of these is that deep so if you are fairer, it might be different. As a standalone highlighter (tested on cheeks), both shades wore well for eight hours. When I mixed with foundation, they did not seem to shorten the wear of my base.

Value

  • Luminizing Drops: $38.00 for 0.50 fl. oz. or $76.00/oz.
  • Total Value: $34.96

Champagne is a light-medium gold with fine pearl. It was semi-sheer and buildable to medium coverage (two layers). The consistency was thin and spread well across the skin and dried down within thirty seconds and did not remain tacky on the skin. The product gave the skin a subtle glow that did not look shimmery or emphasize my skin’s natural texture. I find liquids, like this one, particularly good on bare skin or over tinted moisturizers. It wore well for eight hours on me. NYX Daytime Halo (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Becca Prosecco Pop (P, $41.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (95% similar).

Rose is a light pink with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (medium coverage in two layers), and it seemed in line as described–subtle radiance. The finish was luminous but did not emphasize pores, and it did not look greasy or oily, either. The texture was thin, smooth, and blendable on the skin, whether applied on bare skin or over makeup. It lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Softly Does It (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

The Estee Edit Gritty & Glow Magnetic Eye & Face Palette

The Estee Edit Gritty & Glow Magnetic Eye & Face Palette
The Estee Edit Gritty & Glow Magnetic Eye & Face Palette

The Estee Edit Gritty & Glow Magnetic Eye & Face Palette ($58.00 for 1.62 oz.) includes six eyeshadows and six cheek colors. Even though neither palette seems that large, they both contain a ton of product, and for the price point, I think it’s an excellent value for mid-to-high-end sets. It’s hard to tease out the value, as the permanent range doesn’t seem to have these products in it. The eyeshadow formula is dense, thick, and very pigmented, and it lasted between seven and eight and a half hours before creasing. The cheek color formula wasn’t quite as dense, which was good, as if it had been, it would have been hard to pick up color with a blush brush; instead, it was soft, dense enough to have a richness to it and opaque pigmentation, but it blended out easily and sat well on the skin. The cheek colors lasted between seven and nine hours on me. Also, the “Face” palette is actually a “Face and Eye” palette, so they can be used on the eyes as well (per the brand) — that bit is actually what took me longer to test the set as I had to go back and test the six cheek colors as eyeshadows (though three of the six cheek colors are very similar to the eyeshadows, so they seem redundant as eyeshadows)!

I don’t think that this is that similar to the Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Eye Palette, which has a lighter and darker gold/copper shade, a brighter blue, much warmer green, and then a warm brown instead of a burgundy. The texture is also much, much denser and thicker in the Estee Edit palette and feels more silicone-heavy, while the Victoria Beckham Eye Palette felt more like traditional powder eyeshadow, just richer in overall pigmentation. The Estee Edit eye palette reads cooler, smokier, and… grittier. I see an “at a glance” similarity, but when I start going shade by shade, I don’t see real dupes.

Swerve is a rich, medium-dark coppery brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was dense, cream-like, and very, very smooth on the lid. It was intensely pigmented but still blended out beautifully on the skin. The color started to crease on me after eight and a half hours of wear. LORAC Cider (LE, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Riff is a light-medium peach with warm, golden shimmer and pink undertones.

Burn is a deep burgundy-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satiny sheen. The pigmentation was incredibly opaque, while the texture was smooth, dense, and felt like a cream in the pan. It applied well to bare skin, and it blended out nicely without having to work at it. I noticed subtle signs of creasing after nine hours of wear.

Wavy is a deep teal with a black base and a frosted shimmer. The texture of this one wasn’t quite as smooth, as it had larger sparkly bits in it, but it looked smooth and was intensely pigmented. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours before creasing. Coloured Raine Forbidden (P, $6.99) is lighter (95% similar). bareMinerals Dazzle (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Mood is a dark black with subtle, cool undertones and a smattering of silver and teal sparkle over a mostly matte finish. The consistency was a bit firmer compared to the other shades, and it did not seem as dense, which made it a more buildable eyeshadow. It had good pigmentation, which I was able to build up to true-to-pan color in two to three layers. It blended out fairly easily and lasted for eight hours on me.

Trip is a blackened brown with tons of navy blue sparkle and shimmer. The consistency felt almost wet, and it wasn’t as dense as the other shades, though it still felt smooth to the touch. Of all the shades, this is the only one that was a bit harder to blend and diffuse, especially as the sparkle pulled away from the base, so the color looked less bluish in practice. I had some fall out over the eight hours this shade lasted for. Revlon Neptune Star (LE, $4.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Reveuse (271) (LE, $31.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Snowlit is a very light white gold with darker, warmer yellow gold shimmer. It had good color payoff with a denser, slightly thicker consistency in the pan, but it blended out easily on the skin and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture.

14K Glow is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, denser texture that was easy to work with on the skin as it blended and diffused nicely.

1st Light is a light-medium peach with a warm, golden sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a denser, slightly stiffer texture. This shade worked best when applied with a denser blush brush, and it did show up subtly as a pinkish-toned color on my skin tone (but it will be more of a highlighter on those darker than me). The product well for seven and a half hours on me as a blush and seven hours as an eyeshadow. Looxi Beauty Goddess (P, $7.50) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Gleam is a medium peach with warm, copper undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation, while the consistency was soft, lightly dusty but appeared smooth and remained blendable on the skin. I thought this one might emphasize my skin’s natural texture, but it just yielded a luminous glow. It started to fade after eight hours on cheeks and seven and a half hours on eyes.

Ray is a rich, medium-dark copper bronze with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was very similar to Swerve within the eye palette. The consistency was softer, not quite as dense or as thick as Swerve, so it worked better as a cheek color (most cheek brushes are less dense than eye brushes). It had intense color payoff, and the texture emphasized my skin’s texture just slightly, but it blended out fine otherwise. On me, it lasted for eight hours before fading no the cheeks and eyes (slight creasing on the eyes after eight hours). Ciate Shine Bright (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (95% similar).

Beachy is a medium-dark copper brown with warm undertones and a softer, golden sheen. This had more of a satin finish, so it didn’t appear as golden or as metallic on the skin compared to Ray. The texture was soft, lightly dusty, and fairly smooth, which made it easier to work with on the skin as it blended and diffused well on the skin. As a cheek color, it wore well for eight and a half hours, and as an eyeshadow, it lasted for eight hours. Makeup Geek Firework (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar).
