NARS Talia Contour Blush Duo

NARS Talia Contour Blush
NARS Talia Contour Blush

NARS Talia Contour Blush ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is one of two new, permanent highlighting/contour duos for fall. The highlighting shade in the duos tends to be mostly matte, so it is not your typical shimmery, glowy highlighter. Talia adds a solid choice for medium and medium-dark skin tones looking for skin-like contouring. I also think it can work for lighter skin tones as well, particularly if you like a more dramatic contour or like being able to use a light hand and build-up.

Talia (Highlight) is a medium brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, silky, and effortless when it came to blending and applying it to the skin. It had good color payoff that could still be sheered out and/or applied with a lighter hand. For reference, it adds some noticeable color on me (like a very subtle bronzer) on my skin tone. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. MAC Bronzer (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Natura (P, $37.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (01) (P, $40.00) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (03) (P, $40.00) is darker (90% similar). By Terry Light & Tan Vibes #5 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Talia (Contour) is a medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was firmer and less forgiving, so it took extra work to blend out. On me, this shade started to fade after eight hours. Too Faced Medium Cocoa (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Light Contour (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Deep (P, $44.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Medium Contour (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Contour Soft (Tarteist) (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Los Cabos (24) (P, $14.00) is warmer (90% similar). Zoeva Heavy Crown (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (LE, ) is warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Bronze (P, ) is warmer (80% similar).

Makeup Revolution Peach Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter Powder

Makeup Revolution Peach Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter Powder

Makeup Revolution Peach Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter Powder ($6.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a very light pink with subtle, warm undertones and a shimmery, lightly sparkly finish. NARS Devotee (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Revolution Moon Glow Lights (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Desert Explorations (LE, $2.99) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Luminous (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

The formula is supposed to give “natural looking color” with buildable coverage that wears “all day.” It has a warmer base color, while the shimmer seemed cooler and icier (particularly noticeable when I applied it to the face and blended out). The texture was fairly soft, not as smooth as the other two shades in the range, but it remained blendable and easy to apply to the skin. The texture didn’t emphasize pores on me, and it had buildable, medium coverage. While this had the most noticeable shimmer, it actually seemed to have the least amount of sheen between the three shades in the line; it yields a noticeable glow–somewhere between subtle and moderate. This shade stayed on well for seven hours on me.

MAC x Star Trek Luna Luster Trip the Light Fantastic Powder

MAC Luna Luster Trip the Light Fantastic Powder
MAC Luna Luster Trip the Light Fantastic Powder

MAC Luna Luster Trip the Light Fantastic Powder ($34.00 for 0.22 oz.) is described as a “sheer wash of soft rose shimmer.” The Estee Edit 1st Light (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Sunny Surprise (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NYX Enigmatic (P, $9.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty (Highlight) (LE, ) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals The Five Star Treatment (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Cover FX Blossom (P, $42.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Looxi Beauty Venom (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s a new, limited edition formula for the brand’s collaboration for Star Trek. I have next to no specific information regarding the formula, so I’m assessing it as a typical highlighting powder as they seem designed to impart luminosity over strong color (all three shades are described as sheer and have shimmer/pearl). This shade had sheer to semi-sheer coverage with a fairly soft, smooth consistency that blended out easily on the skin and sat well without emphasizing pores or the skin’s texture. I believe this is the lightest of the three shades that will be available, and it gives a soft glow to my skin tone (light-medium to medium, for reference) but may add a little bit of color on very fair complexions. This wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

The Star Trek collection will be available online on August 25th and in-stores September 1st (North America). There are two more shades–Strange New Worlds (sheer wash of golden coral pearl) and Highly Illogical (sheer wash of golden plum with fine pearl) also released.

Sleek Makeup Solstice Highlighting Palette

Sleek Makeup Solstice Highlighting Palette
Sleek Makeup Solstice Highlighting Palette

Sleek Makeup Solstice Highlighting Palette ($14.99 for 0.32 oz.) consists of four highlighters–three powder, one cream. They’re designed as “highly pigmented metallic finishes” that give a “luminous sheen” on the “face and body.” It’s a fun palette for highlighting that doesn’t break the bank, and I think that the biggest issue is that not all shades were “highly pigmented” but imagine for many, that’s not a deal-breaker when it comes to highlighters.

Ecliptic is a subdued, light-medium rose pink with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was somewhat buildable but never to more than medium coverage. The creamier consistency made it prone to sheering out as it was blended onto the skin, though I think that works well for the type of product it is as it is hard to overdo. On me, the cream highlighter wore for seven hours before becoming patchy. Bobbi Brown Bikini (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Algenist Rose (P, $38.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Lancome Moonlight Rose (LE, $42.00) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Starlight (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Becca Rose Quartz Flashes Seashell (LE, $34.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). MAC Softly Does It (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). L'Oreal Ice (P, $12.99) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Starburst (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Cover FX Celestial (P, $42.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). LORAC Moonlight (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Laura Mercier Devotion (P, $44.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Hemisphere is a cooler, pinky lavender with a luminous sheen. The consistency was soft and blendable, but it was a touch drier and looser in the pan, so it didn’t have the same finely-milled feel as some highlighters/powders can. I don’t think this is something really seen on the skin (at least not for me), as it imparted a nice, glowy finish that didn’t emphasize pores or look dry on. It had good pigmentation and lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. Kevyn Aucoin Ibiza (P, $54.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever 5 Frozen Purple (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Stila Transcendence (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Purple Horseshoe (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Ibiza (Center) (P, $44.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Celestial (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Hippo (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Glitz (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Amethyst (P, ) is cooler (90% similar). Laura Geller Charming Pink (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Catrice Stardust (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dose of Colors Pearl Dust (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Over the Moon (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Urban Decay Aura (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Monster (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Coloured Raine Lavender Dreams (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NYX Lavender Steel (P, $7.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Prismatic Amethyst (LE, $38.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Soft Frost (P, $33.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Spectra (P, ) is darker, more muted, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Subsolar is a very light yellow with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It doesn’t seem warm enough to be your traditional take on a gold highlighter–it almost has a green cast to it at some angles. The texture was smooth but had a firmer press to it compared to the right two highlighters, which resulted in more semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage. It gave my skin a subtle glow without adding warmth to it (I am warm-toned, though) and did not emphasize pores or my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter wore nicely for seven and a half hours. Makeup Revolution Holographic Lights (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). NARS Give In Take Blush I (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Electrify (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Rivage (LE, ) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Perilune (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

LORAC Star Reader (LE, $23.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Rosy Glow (Left) (P, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Ibiza (Left) (P, $44.00) is lighter (85% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Lights (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NYX Ritualistic (P, $9.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Equinox is a bright, light-medium coppery peach with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. This shade was richly pigmented with a very soft, blendable consistency that was a smidgen dry in the pan but didn’t look that way on the skin. On the skin, it had more of a metallic finish, which made it the most reflective of the four shades in the palette, and it was just shy of emphasizing pores on my skin if wore at medium coverage (or sheerer). This shade lasted for just over seven and a half hours for me. Dior #001 (P, $56.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Shimmer (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Forever Young (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Highlighter (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). LORAC Destined (LE, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Makeup Revolution Radiant Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter Powder ($6.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a light, pinky-beige with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. Tarte Spellbound Glow (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Gleam (P, ) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

The formula is supposed to give “natural looking color” with buildable coverage that wears “all day.” The texture of this shade was much smoother and more finely-milled compared to Golden Lights, and as a result, it didn’t feel dry or powdery, though it was very blendable and easy to work with. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to semi-opaque. The shimmer seemed a little more refined as well, so it had more of a light-medium level of sheen that didn’t appear metallic or shiny. On my warmer complexion, it’s a highlighter hue that can work well with many blushes, as it doesn’t alter the color of them much when paired with my skin tone, but very fair and/or cooler skin tones may find it adds some warmth when used. The highlighter lasted seven hours on me before fading noticeably.

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty / Dolce Vita Instant Look Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty Instant Look in a Palette
Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty Instant Look in a Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty Instant Look in a Palette ($75.00 for 0.77 oz.) is a neutral-hued eye and cheek palette that features three eyeshadows and four cheek/face products. I think if you have a good arsenal of neutrals, this will be dupable for you, but they are still a nice set of neutrals that work well together and would be travel-friendly. If you prefer more mattes or less shimmery eyeshadows, though, this one may be limiting. All in all, the palette was easy to use; there was no real fuss, and the more quality-related issue I had was how soft the bronzer was, but it looked great applied, which is where it counts the most.

It is currently listed as unavailable online, but some physical stores may still have stock (really not sure, you’d have to check with your local store!). I actually think that the brand’s Instant Look palettes would be excellent permanent items – I feel like they’re a good value, travel-friendly, and seem to be a good introduction to what the brand has to offer.

Seductive Beauty (Brighten) is a light peachy-beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had a really soft, finely-milled consistency that was a bit loose in the pan, but it applied well to the skin and had an almost “melted” appearance on (a sort of lived-in shimmer look) that was very reflective. The pigmentation was fully opaque, and the color wore well for eight hours before creasing. theBalm D2 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). YSL Scandal #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Jardins Eclatants #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Hello Kitty Apple Pie (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar).

Seductive Beauty (Enhance) is a medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a frosted finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable consistency that sat well on the skin and was easy to work with. The color started to crease after eight hours of wear on me. Divergent Abnegation Stone (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). LORAC Chrome (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Burberry Pale Barley (102) (P, $29.00) is lighter (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Naked Truth #4 (P, $2.29) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Charged Up (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar).

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

Seductive Beauty (Smoke) is a medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, reddish undertones and fine golden shimmer. The color payoff was rich and fully opaque, while the texture was perfectly balanced between soft and firm, dense and blendable–it was extremely easy to apply and blend out without losing intensity. On me, it wore well for eight hours. Too Faced Power Couple (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Bronze (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita #4 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Chanel Promesse #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Cle de Peau Satin Moon #2 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Seductive Beauty (Bronze) is a medium, reddish tan with warm undertones and gold shimmer. The texture was very, very soft and prone to kicking up excess in the pan, and the looser consistency made it easy to get plenty of color payoff out of the powder as well. I’d recommend using a lighter hand and then applying, and if you feel like you may have gotten too much on your brush, lightly tap off the excess. It was very blendable on the skin and diffused nicely without a lot of work. I noticed subtle fading along the edges of the bronzer after eight hours of wear. Urban Decay Sesso (Bronzer) (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). LORAC Spotlight (LE, $23.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Poolside (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Deep (P, $58.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Santos (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Tarte Park Ave. Princess #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (04) (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Days (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). Stila Sending My Love Bronzer (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Hourglass Diffused Bronze Light (P, $50.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Glow With It (P, $33.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Seductive Beauty (Cheek Swish) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and fine, golden shimmer that gave it a luminous sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation (which is as described) with a soft, silky consistency that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan. It lasted for just over seven and a half hours on me before fading. Clinique Melon Pop (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Hourglass Incandescent Electra (P, $38.00) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Sweet Peach Blush (P, ) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Miss Cupcake (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, glossier (90% similar).
